This week's quiz will be a scorcher!

It's time again for the bi-weekly trivia quiz. Brave the heat and come down to the cool confines of the Maple Leaf Pub. Steaks at 7, game starts at 8. Last time we came in both first and second, so we've got a few $'s in winnings to spend. And for those not eating steak the Leaf has stepped up their game on the menu adding a few things to the always-awesome jalepeno's. [more inside]

Pre-4th of July Grill/Potluck at Greg_Ace's DATE/TIME CHANGE

Kind of a short-notice thing, I know (this is NOT the "BBQ meat-up" discussed previously, that'll be later this summer). As July 4th falls on a Wednesday, and I'll have a houseguest with me this coming weekend, I thought it would be fun to have a little get-together. NOTE - DATE AND TIME HAVE CHANGED. [more inside]

A New Cyberpunk Musical Comedy - 2010: Our Hideous Future: The Musical! (Providence, RI)

It’s the way, far future, AD 2010, and it’s a bad time to be human. Freedom fighter Kate Brick plans a final strike against the Artas, artificial life forms who control humankind through torture, brainwashing, and Foursquare. Can Kate and her sometime-lover Dehnise Compuserve make a difference, or is it already too late? "2010: Our Hideous Future" is a synthpop-infused, queer-friendly musical comedy homage to the great dystopian classics of the 1980s and '90s. It features brilliant riffs on classics like “Blade Runner,” “Max Headroom,” and “The Matrix,” and delightfully twisted tunes like "Near Futuristic Dystopia!" and "Bangor Boogie.” Tickets ($10) are available online or at the door.

Dinner in Alexandria Va.

Anybody want to meet up for a weekday dinner in Alexandria Va.? I was thinking most likely on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday, at either Shooter McGee's on Duke Street or Paradiso Italiano on Franconia Road. Other places in Alexandria's west end considered, but not on a weekend, and not in Old Town --- trying to avoid too much hassle with parking and crowds!

Silverdocs - Drinks and documentaries

For those who aren't familiar with it, Silverdocs is a kickass documentary film festival sponsored by the American Film Institute and Discovery. Most of the films are screened in the lovely AFI Silver in downtown Silver Spring, MD, which is metro accessible. Anyone going? Anyone interested? Want to try to meetup somewhere in Silver Spring for pre-or post-film drinks? I live nearby and already have tickets for at least one film for most of the days. The festival runs from June 18-24, but I imagine that it might be easier to coordinate something over the weekend (June 23 or 24) or perhaps Friday night? [more inside]
