San Diego Cookie Potluck

I noticed the MeFi Cookie Swap is up on MetaTalk but I was thinking instead of tediously and expensively mailing cookies to each other, maybe we should try to meet up in person instead! [more inside]

Lesbian potluck!

Looking for new lesbian friends in SF! I’d like to set up a recurring small group to have meals together and hopefully form a friend group. Not looking for dates or romance. First iteration June 8 at Dolores Park (perhaps near the playground) at 2pm. Bring a picnic blanket or towel in case we can’t find a table, and bring something that you want to eat, with a little extra to share if you are able. [more inside]

Dark Horse Inn and Plants

I am growing a ton of mint from cuttings and I have several pepper plants I am growing from seed. One of these plants is mine- that leaves 4 extra. I anticipate in late June/early July I will have even more things from seed/cuttings. I have been giving some away as gifts to my best friend and my favorite bartender- but this is getting ridiculous. I don't want to compost viable plants. I propose on one of my days off (all on weekdays, and I wont know which for a bit) we meet at my local bar/restaurant The Dark Horse Inn on Geneva at 5pm-10pm on a to be determined weekday in late June/early July and we can all have a chill hang and eat and drink and support a local place and maybe some of you can give my plants a new home.

20 plays in 40 minutes: An Infinite Wrench Graduation Show

I’ve been taking a course with the SF Neo-Futurists for the past few weeks, and we’re doing our class show this Wednesday!
The staple Neo-Futurist show is The Infinite Wrench, an ongoing attempt to successfully perform 30 plays in 60 minutes. Since this is a class show, we’ll be making a smaller attempt: 20 plays in 40 minutes! (Slightly reduced number of plays! Same degree of difficulty!)
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll hopefully think about performance in a new way.
You’ll pay nothing and depart with valuable experience!
Seriously though: I love the neo-futurist aesthetic and I think it’s a wonderful thing for anyone to experience in any form. I’d be really happy if some fellow MeFites wanted to come and see what the fuss is about.
