Picnic- District of Columbia

I'd love to meet up w/ the MeFi community members in DC before summer ends. Thinking that a picnic with Caribbean food would be a great way to end summer and kick-off the school year. This would have to be a collaborative effort. Plans are tentative and based on the number of responses. /Food: Avenues of the Caribbean Catering: www.avenuesofthecaribbean.com /Location: National Mall /Date & Time: Tentative

Meet me in SF Aug 30-Sept 1

As above, my vacation dates in San Francisco are confirmed, but I’d love it if you’ll share your fav local-best-kept-secret-fun-things/places (as an former Londoner/multi-East coaster, it’s been a decade since I was last in SF!) and as a bonus, also your company to join ne at restaurants with *outdoor seating* in the Bay area (breakfast/brunch, lunch, or dinner)! I like solo travel, but find meals awkward on my own. I’ll be staying in the Mission, but am happy to take the BART etc. I don’t drive. Thanks! (I’m using the address of a sushi venue to post this.)

The Artist's Way - In Progress

Hi everyone! This spring, I'm giving Julia Cameron's classic creativity program, The Artist's Way, a proper go. It's a 12-week program designed to reconnect to your inner artist, build your confidence as an artist (whether that's writing, music, visual arts, etc.) and be more productive. I plan to start on Sunday, May 8. Join me for gentle accountability, occasional grousing, and (hopefully not infrequent) revelations about the artistic journey. All are welcome! If you are just now finding this, folks have been starting on different weeks, so feel free to join the conversation in the overlap. [more inside]

Looking to meet locals in London

Good evening Londoners (or those who have moved to London): I've recently moved to London and I'm looking for people to meet in the Islington/Hackney/Dalston area. I don't know a soul! I love socialising/eating out so I'd love to visit a few restaurants in Islington or Hackney with drinks before, and then a meal after. I've been recommended Vins so if anyone fancies it let me know and I'd love to meet. I also love museums and walks too.
