we all scream

Update: We're meeting at Besties Cool Treats, at Liberty Station in Point Loma, on Sunday afternoon. Besties (Suite 103, in the "Quarter" district) has ice cream, sorbet, gelato, frozen yogurt, cookies, smoothies, popcorn, and açaí bowls; coffee options include mochas, lattes, and cappuccinos. The shop itself is kid-friendly, and offers seating. Lots more to do at the Liberty Station mixed-use complex (for instance, there's an artwalk this weekend), should you want to make a day of it. Parking info. [more inside]

MeYEG Meetup!

We are traveling the world to meet other MeFites. Let's celebrate the 20th anniversary of Metafilter a little late! (If all you Yeggers are not fond of this location we're open to other ideas!)

Calling all zine makers!

I was thinking it would be cool if a bunch of zine makers came together to chit chat, trade and or make zines. Anyone know a good venue in Manhattan? I was thinking of doing this next Thursday, I guess around 6 for people that work?

Harrisburg Art Museum Battle Rounds

Harrisburg Art Museum in the East End is having a series of mural art and graffiti battles and it seems like a funky place to have a Houston MeFi outing (weather permitting.) Maybe go for a drink at East End Hardware or Truck Yard afterward. I propose we go to the August 24th date (mainly because I can't make August 10th)

Again with the trivia?

Yes. Join us. Onion rings. If you’ve thought of coming for the first time, have come before but not for a while, or are a regular that missed the 20th birthday triumph, here is your chance. This is a happy occasion to be shared.

Dublin Worldcon meetup

After proposing and then totally failing to make it to a Helsinki meet up 2 years ago, I'd like to try again. Thursday (15th August) seems like a good plan, food? drink? somewhere kid friend as I am attending with a kid and a teen. I am from Dublin but the convention is in a part of town that basically didn't exist when I immigrated in the mid-90s, so I don't have a strong feeling about where, though somewhere near the Point Square part of the con might work?

Metalachi MeFi meetup!

Hey y'all! METALACHI is coming to Toronto for the very first time! If you have seen me within the past few months I've probably asked you already if you're gonna join us for the concert - and here is the official IRL event so we can coordinate =) [more inside]

Subway art meetup?

Update: Would October 19th (Saturday) work for people? Can propose other dates if not. I would want to do either a Bronx line (2, 4, or 5) or the J train from Kosciuszko on out. [As I mentioned in Metatalk I have been taking pictures of all NYC's subway art. Another Mefite expressed interest in joining me one day. Maybe you'd like to join me too?]

OSCON Donuts (or other deliciousness)

Since my flight got in about 2 hours too late to make it to the MeFi 20th event (sadface), would love to catch up with whoever is available one morning this week for donuts or one evening this week for ... other delicious consumables. I'm in town through Friday morning, when we pick up our camper van head out for our grand journey down the West Coast to San Fran. [more inside]

mefites in Sault Saint Marie?

Okay it's a long shot, but are there any mefites in Sault Ste Marie, either in Michigan or in Ontario? My mefite spouse and junior mini-mefites will be in town between July 23 and August 2 or so and I think it'd be cool to raise a glass to Mefi on this, its 20th. Anyone interested?

ConvergenceCon

Hey all, never been to Minnesota before but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a little road trip to see national treasure Chuck Tingle at Convergence Con. Review of past IRLs indicates that Convergence MeFi meetups have happened in the past. How about another one? [more inside]

South Florida 20th Anniversary Meetup?

Has there really never been a South Florida meetup? How is this possible?!! Anyone around care to try to do something casual for our grand ol' 20th? I'm in Hollywood and can host in my small but cozy condo on either Friday the 12th or Saturday the 13th--perhaps I can put out some box wine, light snacks, and we can just do a potluck style early evening thing? Other ideas? I had a blast up in Philadelphia for the 10th anniversary and would love the chance to meet some SoFlo MeFites if possible!
