Hello Portland!

My journey has gotten me finally to the Pacific Northwest and I am slowly making my way up the coast. I should be in Portland on the 17th and I’m staying for a record breaking 2 weeks! I have long wanted to visit this hotbed of Metafilter, can we all get together for drinks or food or, I don’t know, it’s your city, you tell me where and when!

Meow Wolf Events for early 2018 / NM meetups ideas

There are a number of good shows coming through Meow Wolf (Santa Fe, NM) in the coming months, but instead of trying to drum up interest in each, I thought I'd just link to the Meow Wolf events page above the fold and let local folks chime in if any strike their fancy. [Also, we should have a normal, non-event/performance meetup soon, because it's been ages, so we can talk about that, too!]
