Hey all, this weekend is Nuit Blanche 2017 in Toronto - the city-wide art fair from dusk Saturday to dawn Sunday. [more inside]
Etc: Public Talk and/or Beer
I'm giving a public lecture on NW Coast Archaeology at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) on October 3rd at 7.45 (This link says 7.00 but there is an AGM first, I think). It's free and open to the public. If you come, be sure to say hi. I'm also in Portland the next day (October 4) and if anyone was interested in meeting for an after-work beer that would be fun - but I'm staying near Gladstone/Jennings Lodge so don't know how feasible that is, I don't know Portland at all.
Meetup: Taters: More Than Just Great Taste
Sorry for the late notice! It's Geeks Who Drink trivia time once again. We postponed last week bc of the possible (though it turns out not that bad) severe weather. So now that Jose has come and gone, join us at Joe Sent Me, Wednesday at 7:30pm.
I've got a group of three or maybe four people who will be carrying on the MDC tradition at the George on Tuesday. JOIN US. [more inside]
Meetup: SSSCSSCC An Occassional Series: Peace March
The Nationwide Solidarity March For Peace falls on October's 2nd Saturday and I know some intrepid Second Saturday-ers were interested. Shall we go together? Meet afterwards for drinks and debrief? I suggest we meet at 11:30 near the Dunkin' Donuts, SE of Federal Plaza. The march details are the event details. The rest is in the comments. [more inside]

CANCELLED Come visit the gardens where I work, eat some pizza and hang out. [more inside]
Meetup: Chuy's for the cheese
Research Monkey set me up for this, and we haven't had a meetup since ignignokt and metroid_baby visited, so let's see if we can do it. Lunch or dinner at the Chuy's in Cary (or Apex, or Morrisville, who can really tell these days?) at the shopping megacomplex off US-55 and US-540. As incentive: I have a coupon for a free, uh, serving thingy of queso. Not sure if it's still good since it's over a year old and kind of beaten up from riding in my wallet the whole time, but let's try it anyway. [more inside]
Proposed: Regular trivia event?
Proposed: we pick a recurring date (second Sundays, fifth Tuesdays, first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox, whatever) and make Friends of Matt a quasi-official team. [more inside]
Meetup: A Song of Fire and Mefite
I am in SF until 15th September and would love to see some friendly faces. Let's meet for casual drinks Tuesday 12th September, 8pm at The Sycamore in the Mission. It'a on Mission between 17th & 18th.
Meetup: T to the R to the I to the VIA!
That time of week draws near again, and I've missed trivial facts. I'm bringing two people with me, so we only need three more to round out the crew. Unless we want to divide and conquer, of course! (Moved the date to Sept 5, which was my original intent)
Meetup: Hot Game Haus In The Summertime
Lets get together for a late-summer afternoon of board and card games! No experience necessary! Game Haus is a laughter-filled place in Glendale that has over 10,000 games, from strategic board games to party games like Pictionary. We usually get a mix of experienced players to help guide us and people like me, who have never played most of the games, and everyone is really patient. It's always a great time. Plus, they love us! [more inside]
Meetup: Taters on the Move
At our last meeting, they announced that trivia night at The Rising would be moving to Tuesdays starting this week. At least a few of our party had a conflict with Tuesdays, so in the true spirit of Allston Christmas, we are moving! [more inside]
Meetup: Illuminated Reef at Can Can Wonderland
I was going to suggest a meetup at indoor boardwalk and arcade fun complex Can Can Wonderland for later this month and then noticed this delightful installation is happening over the weekend. So, in case not everyone has headed up to the cabin for Labor Day... [more inside]
