One World, First Wednesday, One Love (plus 20th Anniversary planning)

It's World Environmental Day and also Arbor Day in New Zealand, so since we can't go plant some trees there sadly, let's drown our sorrows for fellowship, beers tiny and otherwise, and hopefully Wheel of Fortune. I'm also commandeering this time to discuss what Chicago will be doing for Metafilter's 20th anniversary in July. Eventually, we'll dismiss to karaoke if the last ~10 years are anything to go by.

DC FOODIES Ghanaian Gathering

Thanks to all who came out for a wonderfully fun and action-packed meetup at Eden Center last weekend! Let's keep the fun rolling into June with a half-dinner, half-(optional) dance party* meetup at Adams Morgan's Bukom Cafe, where West African cuisine is the name of the game. Come early, stay late for music and dancing! [more inside]

DC-Area 20th Anniversary Meetup

How and when do DC MeFites want to celebrate MeFi's Twentieth? The true anniversary is July 14, and National Ice Cream Day is July 21—perfect for another Ice Cream Social. Or would people prefer to meet in a restaurant or bar?

Lesbian potluck!

Looking for new lesbian friends in SF! I’d like to set up a recurring small group to have meals together and hopefully form a friend group. Not looking for dates or romance. First iteration June 8 at Dolores Park (perhaps near the playground) at 2pm. Bring a picnic blanket or towel in case we can’t find a table, and bring something that you want to eat, with a little extra to share if you are able. [more inside]

Dark Horse Inn and Plants

I am growing a ton of mint from cuttings and I have several pepper plants I am growing from seed. One of these plants is mine- that leaves 4 extra. I anticipate in late June/early July I will have even more things from seed/cuttings. I have been giving some away as gifts to my best friend and my favorite bartender- but this is getting ridiculous. I don't want to compost viable plants. I propose on one of my days off (all on weekdays, and I wont know which for a bit) we meet at my local bar/restaurant The Dark Horse Inn on Geneva at 5pm-10pm on a to be determined weekday in late June/early July and we can all have a chill hang and eat and drink and support a local place and maybe some of you can give my plants a new home.

Triangle 20th Meetup - Saturday, July 13th

It has been almost 20 years since the first post on MeFi, so what an opportune time to get together here in the Triangle of North Carolina! Maybe we can even make this a regional thing and lure some MeFites down from the mountains, off the Outer Banks, and "y'all too, Fort Bragg!" Let's start a discussion in this thread about where, when, and what we want to do in general terms before we nail down the details. [more inside]

Tokyo 20th Anniversary Meetup

As suggested by Ghidorah in the MeFi 20 Planning Thread, maybe this could prompt us to get our act together and have a meetup without the impetus of a Mefite visiting from elsewhere? [more inside]

MeFi20 - Massachusetts South Coast

Come to my house for the MeFi20 meetup. We'll have snacks, some sort of dinner-ish food, some sort of drinks, lawn games, indoor games, wifi, and who knows what else. If you're not normally a "meetup person" but would like to say hello and then go somewhere and twiddle with your phone while drinking a nice beverage, we can accommodate. Family and friends? Sure! Kids, are very welcome. [more inside]

Twin Cities 20th Anniversary Meetup Planning Thread

This thread is for planning the Metafilter 20th Anniversary meetup in the Twin Cities. The first metafilter post was on July 14th, 1999. Jessamyn is hosting folks in Massachusetts on the 13th and I think that a Saturday might be more convenient for folks than a Sunday. [more inside]
