March NYC Crafting

The next knitting/general crafting meetup is due to be at 11am on March 8th. The only wrinkle? Yelp suggests Coffeed is still closed, if not deceased, and I don't think we're totally thrilled with the Starbucks, so we should think about a location. [more inside]

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?

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?]

Visiting New York

I want to take a weekend trip up to New York in September or October, and I'd like to come at a time when I can meet up with New York MeFites! So, is there a specific date when I should (or should not) head up? Specific place where you would (or would not) want to meet? In short, when exactly are you all free? [more inside]

NYC DSA feminist working group July meeting

Hi! After discussion about the DSA in the politics megathread and some enthusiastic PMs, someone suggested we make an IRL event (thanks bilabial!). This is pretty much what it says on the tin. I've never been to this working group before, so I don't totally know what to expect, but I would be happy to meet up with various MeFites there. This is the DSA's description of the event.

Drunk Education - There’s No Ethical Consumption Under Capitalism

We all know that there’s no such thing as ethical consumption under capitalism, but what does that mean for the rest of our lives? This Drunk Ed show will ask questions like: What are the most cost-efficient crimes? How do you choose between all of your many garbage habits? And is it ethically acceptable for vegetarians to (literally) eat the rich? Talks by Kelli Korducki, John Leavitt (Mefi’s own The Whelk), Anna Merlan, and Eve Peyser. Tickets and information here!

NYC Metafilter Book Meetup

I’m reading Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. I’d like to talk about it with people. Metafilter is full of great and thoughtful people. I think this book would be good for discussion in two meetings because it’s long, with the paperback coming in at 479 pages. There are discussion questions in the back of the book. We could choose two or three (or more!) things to talk about. [more inside]

I'm bad with planning meetups but we should have one.

It's finally fall, so why not celebrate with a meetup!? I was thinking McKenna's pub on west 14th would be good. Thursday the 16th at 6pm. I was also thinking about making a biweekly Saturday meetup if anyone's interested. Suggestions for a venue for that are welcome too.
