January NYC Crafting

I dropped to ball on December, but let's get going again in January. Same as usual: Coffeed, Chelsea, all crafts welcome. (To be clear, if you want to come hang out in a coffee shop for ~2 hours while people knit/craft, that is also fine.) [more inside]

Twenty Twenty Trivia Time

In the body of the post, I propose to describe the life-altering event that Metafilterians will experience as they gather at the George & Dragon, greet those attending for the first time (or the first time in a long time), greet the grizzled veterans of past battles and flex their metaphorical mental muscles.

Comedy for Carmen (Rubio)

I'm hosting a killer comedy showcase at the very cool Rose City Book Pub on Fremont. Lineup includes Adam Pasi (Portland's Funniest Person winner), Belinda Carroll, Alex Rios, Julia Ramos, Thomas Lundy, Meanroth Ny, and Mefi's own Mark Saltveit (my final Portland gig before moving) We'll pass the hat about a third of the way through the show but no one will be turned away. No politicians, no speeches, just funny.

First Wednesday! We're Still Trying

I'm executive-decisioning this one. L&L Tavern, after work, say 6ish? I'm five minutes away, so if you're going to make it to L&L earlier, let me know and I'll join you. We'll head to Carol's Pub around 7pm or 7:30 for a karaoke fundraiser for Sarah's Circle, a nonprofit that provides homeless or at risk women with food, clothing, shelter, housing and clinical services for domestic violence and trauma.

Want to jump into the Potomac on Jan 25 to fight climate change?

Hi all! I'm doing the Chesapeake Climate Action Network's "Keep Winter Cold" polar bear plunge again this year. It's a fundraising event for a great organization that does excellent state & local organizing around environmental issues--they're the ones we have to thank for Maryland's fracking ban. I'm wondering if I can coax some local mefites into taking the plunge with me and fundraising as #TeamMetafilter. Anyone interested? [more inside]

First Wednesday: November Vote for the Goat

After a few months of trying elsewhere, we're returning to the Billy Goat for this first Wednesday because 3 years ago we were here for the Cubs winning the World Series and also we haven't found a better permanent place. I'll be there after work around 6 and we'll be there for a few hours probably and then I'm planning on heading up to Carol's Pub for karaoke and burgers. [more inside]

DC FOODIES @ Bombay Street Food

Hello FOODIES, we didn't nail down a date and location at the end of our delicious Peruvian dinner at Pisco y Nazca, but my October weekends are quickly filling up so I thought I'd throw something on the calendar. Let's head to Bombay Street Food in Columbia Heights. Unlike many of our locations, I've been here before several times and highly recommend it for street food dishes rarely seen in our corner of the US like kati rolls and pav bhaji, plus items from Indo-Chinese cuisine and the most delicious "cutting chai". This location does not take reservations, but I've found it's pretty quiet toward the beginning of the weekend lunch hour. Show up early, help us corner some tables, and we should be good to go!

Wednesday Night at the MFA (free!)

When MeFites view art, is it a MeFart?
Well! Let me recalibrate the taste-level of this IRL post by cordially inviting you all to meet up at the Museum of Fine Arts on Wednesday evening, October 16, at 7PM (free admission, donations accepted). Let's gather at the Taste Café in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art, Level 1, at 7PM, wait about 10-15 minutes for people to show up, and then meander from there. The MFA's open until 10PM, but don't feel like you have to wander around for three hours. [more inside]

By George, it’s time again for some head scratching.

We’ve spent a sufficient amount of time resting on our laurels. Let’s gather again for trivia and onion rings. As always, if you haven’t come before, please consider joining us. We were all starry-eyed neophytes at one time and are living proof that trivia causes no immediately perceptible harm.
