Hello, fellow Phoenicians! Long time, no meetup. We've been reminded that it's ice cream social season, so I figured we should try to make this happen if people are around over the summer. [more inside]

Hey, MeFites of Portland and Portland-adjacent places!

YYZ to GEG

Mr. Conspiracy and I are going to be visiting Spokane at the end of July. We're free in the late afternoon and into the evening of Friday, August 3 and I'm wondering if there are any Spokane or Spokane-adjacent MeFites who want to get together for a meetup. Thinking a hangout involving drinks, food and mellow conversation in a reasonably chill venue in/around downtown Spokane. Suggestions welcome - we've visited before and we know there are some great beverages and eats to be had in that town.

We tried and failed to come up with an alternate plan R Bar Chicago (Renaldi's bar annex) for First Wednesday which happens to be this miserable shitheel of a country's birthday celebration.There is no Live Wire karaoke that night, but we think Shakers on Clark in Lakeview/Boystown will have karaoke for those who enjoy. If not, trivia starts at R Bar around 9 pm. [more inside]

Broadway Waltz

A very low-key social partner dance: easy to try for newbies; traditional energetic as well as modern gentle music for the partner dances; an open-role dance for those who like it. From 7:20-8pm we teach a lesson for *total beginners* that will get you through Walking That Counts as Dancing, and give you a try at either rotary waltz or polka, which are gloriously whirly. You don't need to dress up or come with a partner. [more inside]

York: Let's eat burnt bread with fillings!

ETA: Since the weather is slated to be gorgeous we will try to get a table outdoors. I will likely be easy to spot as I have bright red and yellow hair and a loud American accent. I may try to make a sign. We will be in York and would love to meet up with other MeFites as we take a break from visiting everything FPP-worthy in town! We've chosen The Maltings Free House because it's recommended in the Good Pub Guide. If we should view this as the Not So Good Pub Guide please let us know now. It's very close to the train station and offers charming food such as "burnt bread with various fillings" as well as an array of beers, whiskeys and fruit wines (and I'm assuming some non-alcoholic beverages as well).

We've spent a lot of time exploring the cuisines of Europe and Asia, but not quite as much in Central America. And yet we're in the unofficial pupusa capital of the US!

NC State Farmers Market Meetup

Let's have a meetup at the North Carolina State Farmers' Market in Raleigh! I'm proposing a breakfast / brunch meetup at the State Farmers' Market Restaurant, which as you can tell from their URL, prides themselves on their biscuits. Afterwards folks can check out the Farmers' Market for produce, baked goods, and plants. There's also the Nahunta Pork Outlet for those interested in pork products.
