Trivia Seattle Style

More trivia! With Mefites! Outdoors is an option if the weather is good or we just want the fresh air. Warning: Since restarting, there have been no questions about Central European rivers. After a rocky start, I am pleased to report the onion rings are better than ever.

Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo: Pride-themed "Adults Night Out"

My spouse and I are planning to attend the Lincoln Park Zoo's Adults Night Out event on June 26. Tickets are $20 and may sell out. We'll be socially distanced, wearing masks, and fully vaccinated. The venue looks like it should be reasonably safe, perhaps aside from lines for the cash bar. If anyone else is interested in going, it would be fun to meet up in person.

Austin, TX ONLINE mutual aid group planning

Hey, guys. Struck me this morning that it's a good idea for MeFites in town to know where everyone is, what potential needs folks have, and how to help if things get much worse. I'm setting this one as a proposed meetup in Austin in the hopes of getting emails out to folks in town, but right now I have no intention of meeting in-person--just organizing folks in town so that we can set up a network we can use to help one another and familiarize ourselves with anyone who's local on the site. Anyway, here's a space. Thoughts?

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]
