Tatering Around is filmed before a live studio audience

Back in 2018 I was on a very famous trivia team
They won every two weeks, it was just like a dream
They're called the Taters, and they are Geeks Who Drink
Come out to Phoenix Landing, if you like to think
And you're more Tater than a Mefite
Or you're more Mefite than a Tater

Dublin June 26th?

I've over in Dublin until July 1st, and wondering if any Mefites would like to meet up? We can either drink to forget or to celebrate whatever the result of the referendum is. ETA: Sorry: a range of family crises meant that I dropped the ball on this one. But if anyone wanted to meet on the 26th in the late afternoon/evening that would work for me. [more inside]

DC FOODIES' Tbilisi Tuesday

Hey FOODIES, does the hype about Compass Rose's khachapuri make you wonder what kind of culinary wonderland could have produced such a marvel? Do you want to chow down on dumplings all day and all night? Do you work in downtown DC or can you easily get there on a weeknight? Then you are in luck!
