Philadelphia - it's been way too long

We're confirmed for Sunday 2/10 @ 2pm, Frankford Hall. Soooo it's been since April of last year since any meetup happened, and that was just me and dances_with_sneetches who was visiting from Puerto Rico. It's been since like 2016 since we had a board game meetup. Yikes! [more inside]

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]

Book Release Party: "The Tao of Chip Kelly"

The official book release of my book about the new coach of the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles (and former coach of the Oregon Ducks) will be at Theatre Exile before the 8pm showing of "The Philly Fan," a one-man show about sports. This is not a biography or Xs and Os book, but rather a look at the philosophy and innovative management strategies underlying Kelly's success at Oregon (46-7 over 4 years, a BCS bowl every year). The Tao of the title is not glib; I argue that -- wittingly or not -- Kelly's football programs are near-perfect implementations of Taoist principles such as The Uncarved Block, tzu-jan, minimizing ego and emotion, and the pursuit of spontaneity and flexibility through long experience and focused, humble observation. Book signing and reading at 7, plus a Q&A after the play.
