Chicago Town Hall with Elizabeth Warren 6/28

Anyone going to this thing and care to meet up and stand around together? I have been trying to talk myself into going because I know I will be very happy I made the effort. I will be traveling solo from Evanston, a thing I do rarely and awkwardly, and attempting to arrive between 4 and 4:30. [more inside]

Trivia: Just ask the Axis

Stretching the hometown hero Jimi theme: Let's do it again! We failed to win this week but were still able to review cgc373’s recent book acquisitions. They were, as usual, edifying and inspirational. But seriously: we did not win because you were not there. Do you want that on your permanent record for another week? I thought not. See you next Tuesday!

Dansk møde / Danish meet-up

I am moving back to Denmark after 35 years away (!), and would like to meet any local metafilters.
I will arrive on July 2, and propose to meet sometimes toward the end of the month.
Shall we say Saturday July 27 in Copenhagen?
Depending on the number of people attending, I am open to any suggestions for time, space & things to do.
My Danish is a bit rusty, but I'm sure it will be better by the time we meet.
Thank you,
Hanan [more inside]
