Purple Rain at Times Cinema

Self-explanatory. This is walking distance from my house, so if no one shows up I'm going either way. They serve alcohol if that makes a difference to you. I picked the day with the best weather but I'm fine with Tues or Thurs too. [more inside]

Pridefest at the Summerfest grounds

UPDATE: My refrigerator broke and I'm having a new one installed today, but I'm not sure when it will be, thus I don't know if/when I'll be there. Pridefest is this weekend! $13 for one-day admission. There's a variety of food and drink. Here's the full entertainment lineup (including Ani Di Franco and En Vogue). Straight people are welcome (and very common). Saturday looks like the best day, weather-wise, so I'm probably going to be there from 3 pm until I'm too exhausted or drunk to dance anymore. If you can't commit to a time, but you might go and want to meet up, memail me for my phone number and you can text me.

So far, so lovely

So, I've arrived in Madison (thanks for all the helpful answers to my Ask!) and I was wondering if anyone wanted to have a meet-up over a beer or two. I don't have a time or place in mind but somewhere near the university would be most convienient for me. Date-wise I was thinking sometime in the next couple weeks. Update: Thursday, 18 September, 4:30, at The Mason (416 S Park Street). I'll update next Thursday with how you can recognize me.

Surely, People Will Be in Madison for WisCon

So, last year, we tried to have a WisCon meetup, and it didn't come off as cleanly as hoped. So I am going to get the ball rolling. WisCon is 25-28 May 2012. The last day is Memorial Day, and not so great for a meetup, so that leaves 25-27. My suggestions for a venue are: [more inside]

Coffee Meetup before the Rally at the Capitol

There are 3 events going on Saturday afternoon around the capitol: Noon - Farmer Labor Tractorcade around the Capitol Square, 2 pm - Arts Workers March Together (from the Overture Center for the Arts), 3 pm - AFL-CIO rally at the Capitol. So let's meet up before all that to get warm, get caffeinated and get ready. I'm flexible on location, I picked Michelangelo's because it's close and I was there last weekend.
