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.

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]

Road Movie to Berlin

Under_petticoat_rule and I are coming to Berlin on December 1-2! One of our favorite parts of traveling is meeting local MeFites. MeFites seem to be pre-selected to be really interesting people and always tell us interesting things about their cities. I've blindly poked at a map and selected Brauhaus Lemke because it's central and seems to have places for people to gather. If there's a better location please suggest it in comments!

Trivia at Cat and Fiddle! This is our first trivia hang as a MeFi IRL posse, but I suspect it is gonna be a hoot. Seattle and Portland seem to do IRL trivia events all the time, so Calgary might as well put ourselves on the map as far as that's concerned. Trivia allegedly starts at 7:30pm; let's plan for a 7pm(ish) meetup! As always, this thread is available on the Day Of, if you're the first person to arrive or if are trying to find the rest of us :)
