Visiting Belfast

I'll be in Belfast from May 10th to May 12th and am curious if any local MeFites would be interested in a meetup in the evening on the 10th or the 11th. Seeing as it was used for the previous meetup, maybe the Crown Bar?

MeFites in Tacoma? Let's have a beer.

Hello South Sounders! Me and Mr. Miss Mobtown have recently arrived from the Bay Area and we have befriended a few Seattleites but very few Tacomans. I never took advantage of IRLs when I lived in SF, but I'm stepping outside my comfort zone to suggest a meetup in Tacoma sometime in early May for a beer. What say you?

Can the Best of the Web be instantiated in Singapore?

After 2 months of constant shuttling between Seattle and Singapore (where I had never been until 2 months ago) I realized that there might be some MeFites (pronunciation flexible) in residence in Singapore. I just learned I will be going again and staying for three weeks (April 17 - May 4). So: Anyone interested in a meetup? [more inside]

I almost misspelled "trivia" in the title, which indicates we need to do this more often.

Drunk Education - There’s No Ethical Consumption Under Capitalism

We all know that there’s no such thing as ethical consumption under capitalism, but what does that mean for the rest of our lives? This Drunk Ed show will ask questions like: What are the most cost-efficient crimes? How do you choose between all of your many garbage habits? And is it ethically acceptable for vegetarians to (literally) eat the rich? Talks by Kelli Korducki, John Leavitt (Mefi’s own The Whelk), Anna Merlan, and Eve Peyser. Tickets and information here!

DC FOODIES Brunch It Up

Um, did someone say "all you can eat and drink"? Inspired by Washington City Paper's celebration of DC's rich Trinidadian heritage, we're headed to Crown Bakery in Brightwood Park, DC, for Sunday brunch on the 22nd. (I was going to say we're heading to Trinidad, but that's an actual place in DC and I endeavor to eliminate confusion!) Is Kennedy St. really the new Upshur St.? Join us and find out! [more inside]

NYC April Sunday Knitting Meetup

Hi folks, you know the drill! City Bakery, 11 am, bring yer knittin' or crochet or whatever. FYI - there may also be a Saturday meetup starting on a different schedule, but at the same venue (someone has reached out to me about wanting to do that), so don't fret if you start seeing two meetups.

April movie outing?

Linda and I have spoken about doing something on a weekend, like getting together some MeFites to see the film Lady Bird. Problem is, I can't get film programs for more than a week ahead except for art film houses, which aren't showing that at the moment. So, any suggestions for a weekend, earlier in the day outing, movie or otherwise this month? Ideas welcomed! (Consider checking out Biocafé Tellus for Sunday at 17:00 films to see if any of those are appealing.)
