Sydney meetup?

Hey all, I'm going to be in Sydney for a couple days next week and would love to meet up at a bar and see those of you from MeFi I never get to meet in person. I have no idea where to meet up, but Thursday night next week (August 4th) somewhere downtown by the circular quay would work best for me.

Do we have a goat for August 3rd?

There's no post for the (I assume) August 3rd Goat meet-up. Of course, I'm just wondering, since I've never actually made it to one....

Cork, Ireland meetup anyone?

I moved to Cork a few months ago and we're finally settled, so I think it's beyond time to arrange a meetup. I would love to meet some local mefites and have a yarn. I'm here with my non-mefi husband (don't worry, he's still nice) who will be tagging along. We're open to suggestions for times and places since we don't know the local scene at all. Update: I added the date and time and stuff, hopefully it's OK! The google maps API here is kind of crap and I can't make it any more accurate than this, so if you need directions look up The River Lee hotel on the google maps website and it will point right at it.

So, Miko's in town.

Miko popped into the picnic thread to say she'd be here July 23-28 and is free in the evening while she's here (except on Sunday and Monday). Like most conference-goers, she's staying Loopish. Since the monthly Goat is one week later, I propose a different spot. But where? There's the conundrum. We have decided upon Ten Cat in Lakeview. [more inside]

Pub Trivia: What Is… Cliff Clavin?

Steak and Geeks Who Drink pub trivia. What could be better? I know! Our score could be better! Last time's 7th place finish (out of 15 teams) was like the episode of Cheers when Cliff went on Jeopardy! and found categories that were custom-made for him... only exactly the opposite. Still, we'll pick ourselves up and dust off and try again! Don't forget to come early to stake out a good table and enjoy yummy yummy steak!

Potluck dinner! Tonight!

Feeling down? Your Wednesday plans not shaping up as you'd like? Then come have dinner with me, my boyfriend, (The Rt Hon.) MP and some awesome non-mefites. Bring a (vegan) dish, or a beverage, and yourself. We're taking care of a few dishes ourselves, so if you can't think of a vegan dish to bring, don't sweat it and just bring drinks. [more inside]

The Thing 3: Trivia with a Vengeance

Hey guys! It's time again for Boston/Cambridge area Geeks Who Drink pub trivia. We must continue our trivia dominance over the rest of New England nerdery. We will of course be at Tommy Doyle's in Harvard Square again, but your guess is as good as mine as to which floor. Maybe we'll be on the roof. Who knows--it's all part of the adventure. At least one of us will be wearing a MeFi t-shirt.

Siawnses in China

The Siawnses are taking a wee holiday to China; we will be in Beijing on the night of the August 12th (among other nights). Do any Beijinger MeFites fancy a meetup then? Is a Friday night a dumb time to meet in Beijing? Anybody know a good place to go? Please feel free to give advice on locations/times, because I basically have no clues when it comes to what's what in Beijing.

Meet the MeFi Intern at Shake Shack

I'm taking the intern on a tour of NYC journalism hotspots and we might as well have a meetup while we're at it. He's only 18 so bars are out, and we're flying in Monday afternoon so I figure a Monday night meetup would be a good introduction to NYC, good food, and good friends.
