Philly Trivia Night Anyone?

Once upon a time Mefites played quizzo together... let's do it again! Day / time / location suggestions are open (I'd prefer not Wednesdays unless that messes with everyone else's availability). I'll come up with some ideas too!

Ok, let's schedule this! Tuesday, March 15th, at 7pm, at Smith's Restaurant and Bar at 39 S 19th St, Philadelphia, PA 19103. I don't know how crowded it gets, so we should try to get there a little early to grab a table. Go Team Metafilter!

Need 1-2 players for a roleplaying game - novices welcome!

Have you seen the numerous posts on the blue and the green praising roleplaying games and want to give them a try? Or are you an experienced gamer looking for a group? If so, I am looking for 1-2 players to join my Pathfinder campaign. Our emphasis is on roleplaying over combat though there is certainly some of that too. No experience in Pathfinder or other RPGs necessary. Campaign blurb & logistics beneath the fold [more inside]

Meetup for MeFites with Mini Mefites?

I've been really out of the MetaFilter loop and would like to fall back in again. There must be some MeFites still here in Philly and I would love to hang out with them. My wife and I have a rambunctious almost 3 year old and it would be nice to bring him along too, so ideally a place that is kid-friendly would be great. [more inside]
