May 2015 Archives (all archives)
Exhibition: Former Metafilter Project being shown in Park Slope
I'm opening a little show at Lucey's Lounge in Park Slope, hanging some of my "Impermanence" prints and photos on wood. These are large images of feathers, decorated skulls and butterflies. There will be an extended Happy Hour featuring some of their awesome cocktails made with homemade mixers and syrups. There may or may not be popcorn, and there's an awesome pizza spot next door. Conveniently located on 3rd Ave and 10th st in Park Slope right off the 4th Ave/9th St R and F stop, I hear there's lots of roads too! [more inside]
Meetup: Game Day (on short notice!)
Time for another board game day! Lots of games to choose from, plus new addition Penny Press. Join us! [more inside]
Meetup: Georgian Soup Dumplings and All The Games
Citizens! I have a sudden and incontrovertibly ingenious plan, inspired by a Jonathan Gold review on KCRW of the Tumanyan Khinkali Factory, describing the khinkali as a "near peak soup dumpling experience." Given that this is in Glendale, and thus in vague proximity (2ish miles) to MeFite favorite GameHaus Cafe (previously and previouslier)...well, you can imagine my excitement! [more inside]
Proposed: Maryville Mini MeFi Meetup
Now that we have confirmed the existence of TWO MeFites from Maryville, TN, it is clearly time to have a drink together. So I'm paging Knoxville-area MeFites to the Barley's in Maryville. Does Saturday, June 6 work for you? [more inside]
Meetup: Pridefest at the Summerfest grounds
UPDATE: My refrigerator broke and I'm having a new one installed today, but I'm not sure when it will be, thus I don't know if/when I'll be there. Pridefest is this weekend! $13 for one-day admission. There's a variety of food and drink. Here's the full entertainment lineup (including Ani Di Franco and En Vogue). Straight people are welcome (and very common). Saturday looks like the best day, weather-wise,
so I'm probably going to be there from 3 pm until I'm too exhausted or drunk to dance anymore. If you can't commit to a time, but you might go and want to meet up, memail me for my phone number and you can text me.
Meetup: Roadtripping through Portland (hiking + lunch)
Details added: Tryon Park, then lunch somewhere in Sellwood.My plan is to slowly amble through the nature center and the trees at a leisurely place. More ambitious hikers can charge ahead! Memail me if you need my number. (You're welcome to just join us at the restaurant, too.) [more inside]
Etc: 30th Annual Hunger Walk (5k)
I'm walking in the 30th Annual Hunger Walk to benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Deborah's Place. Join me (or donate)! [more inside]

Meetup: June, the Goatening
First Wednesday is next week. Join us at the Goat for food and tiny beers after work. Follow along when we decamp to the Frog (676 N LaSalle) for booze, awkward dancing and the finest karaoke you never sang. 2015 has been dialing the awesome way up and I hope you will help us keep the trend going. Seriously, folks, why are you not joining us?

Meetup: Calgary May or June Meetup?

Meetup: Austin, let's meet up!
April was a little crazy but I'm ready to see Austin's smiling faces in May sometime. Either a weekday evening or a weekend afternoon. Location is ideally downtown-ish or a little north and we'll be looking to replace the lamented Dog & Duck as a watering hole/munching spot. ETA: Black Star Co-op on Sunday, May 17, at 2 PM.

Meetup: Meetup at Mission Dolores on June 5th
Hey, I'm coming to Brooklyn on the weekend of June 5th to beat around and be a tourist for a bit. Anyone want to get drinks/dinner in the area? I heard the 4th Avenue Pub was good, but I don't know the area, so I'm open to other venues, and any time between Friday afternoon and Saturday night is fine by me. EDIT: Let's go to Mission Dolores! If people would prefer a different time, I'm definitely open to changing that until like a week before I come down.
