I can't be the only one who often can't make it up to the Portland events. Who else lives in Eugene, Corvallis, the central coast, maybe Salem? It might be really hard to find a winery or brewery here, but we'll manage. [more inside]

By George, it’s time again for some head scratching.

We’ve spent a sufficient amount of time resting on our laurels. Let’s gather again for trivia and onion rings. As always, if you haven’t come before, please consider joining us. We were all starry-eyed neophytes at one time and are living proof that trivia causes no immediately perceptible harm.

DC FOODIES @ Bombay Street Food

Hello FOODIES, we didn't nail down a date and location at the end of our delicious Peruvian dinner at Pisco y Nazca, but my October weekends are quickly filling up so I thought I'd throw something on the calendar. Let's head to Bombay Street Food in Columbia Heights. Unlike many of our locations, I've been here before several times and highly recommend it for street food dishes rarely seen in our corner of the US like kati rolls and pav bhaji, plus items from Indo-Chinese cuisine and the most delicious "cutting chai". This location does not take reservations, but I've found it's pretty quiet toward the beginning of the weekend lunch hour. Show up early, help us corner some tables, and we should be good to go!

Wednesday Night at the MFA (free!)

When MeFites view art, is it a MeFart?
Well! Let me recalibrate the taste-level of this IRL post by cordially inviting you all to meet up at the Museum of Fine Arts on Wednesday evening, October 16, at 7PM (free admission, donations accepted). Let's gather at the Taste Café in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art, Level 1, at 7PM, wait about 10-15 minutes for people to show up, and then meander from there. The MFA's open until 10PM, but don't feel like you have to wander around for three hours. [more inside]

#11 Busless Beer Crawl (Rescheduled)

Rescheduled after sickness & questionable weather caused an eleventh-hour cancellation of our originally planned event: We had so much fun going to all eleven stops of the #11 Bus Beer Explorer Passport in a single day in 2016 that we did it again the next year. We missed organizing one last year, and the #11 bus no longer exists, but we're going to recreate the crawl on foot or other methods of transportation for 2019. [more inside]

Skansen

In light of recent post on icemen, I'd like to invite folks to Skansen this weekend, where I will be delivering ice on both Saturday and Sunday, 10-16. Sunday is COOP day, so if you have one of those green cards in your wallet you get in for free. This day is notorious for high visitor numbers, so consider yourself warned. I hang out mainly in the environments representing the 1920s and 30s, so Skånegården (previously) and the hardware store quarter.
