Calgary pre-winter outdoor meetup

Hey everyone, Reviving this thread as it kind of stalled out last month or so. Just wondering who might be interested in an IRL meetup, while it's still warm enough to do an outdoor/backyard/patio type thing. I'd be very happy to host a backyard BBQ at my place, but now that patios are open again, I'm open to suggestions as well.

Summer Hangs

Hi everyone, Just wondering who would be interested in a meetup sometime before the season turns. We could have a (safe*) BBQ at my place or do an online meetup, I'm up for whatever. *If we do decided to go full IRL, we can figure out some agreed-upon safety measures in the thread.

Trivia!

Trivia at Cat and Fiddle! This is our first trivia hang as a MeFi IRL posse, but I suspect it is gonna be a hoot. Seattle and Portland seem to do IRL trivia events all the time, so Calgary might as well put ourselves on the map as far as that's concerned. Trivia allegedly starts at 7:30pm; let's plan for a 7pm(ish) meetup! As always, this thread is available on the Day Of, if you're the first person to arrive or if are trying to find the rest of us :)

The Know Show: Rise of the Machines. Toronto's only SCIENCE-themed comedy variety show, The Know Show, will be featuring a special guest this month—grouse!

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?

Kennedy Station at Free Times

My band is playing on Groundhog Day, as promised! It'd be fun to see you there. We play from about 8-11pm. Good food and drink (and the old-potato smell of a place that makes 1000s of latkes) to be had, plus great company. Lots of tunes you know, a few you don't. Unhip as heck. [more inside]

Toronto meetup on the horizon

Well, all, we have not had a meetup in a while now, or even a couple of whiles. Patio season is behind us, but Storm Crow Manor is descending upon us. Seems like as good a rationale as any to assemble and have a free-ranging discussion of stuff. [more inside]

My First Meetup: Toronto edition

I'm on a roundabout drive from NYC to Minneapolis and will be stopping in Toronto from Friday 12th October til Sunday the 14th. I've never been to Toronto and have never been to a MetaFi meetup, so this could be a big weekend for me. Any Torontonian Mefites free for dinner or drinks Saturday (and/or possibly Friday depending on what time I can get into town)? [more inside]

Folly Brewpub Trivia

Since a few people expressed interest who couldn't make it last time, trivia is on again this Tuesday at Folly Brewpub. Trivia starts at 7pm, but I'm generally there from 6:30. Last time we had a resounding win, so we need to try to retain our crown. Very low stakes, only a round of beer, but always fun.

Folly Brewpub Trivia

Mr Kris10_b and I have been going to trivia at Folly Brewpub on College St, but there haven't been many people showing up. I was wondering if anyone woukd like to join us for the next trivia night on 11th September so we can have a few more team members, or possibly another team. The prize is just a round of beers, but they have a good range of questions and it's always a fun night.

Johnny Wallflower in Victoria, BC

We're visiting family there next month and I'd love to meet some Canadian MeFites in the flesh. We're staying near the Emily Carr statue and residence, so a cultural outing would be swell. It looks like the only day we'll have free is 9/11. Is anybody available then?
