Calgary pre-winter outdoor meetup

Hey everyone, Reviving this thread as it kind of stalled out last month or so. Just wondering who might be interested in an IRL meetup, while it's still warm enough to do an outdoor/backyard/patio type thing. I'd be very happy to host a backyard BBQ at my place, but now that patios are open again, I'm open to suggestions as well.

Okay, fair, he probably won't be there. But if he is, we all owe him a beer. Now that COVID-19 has been eradicated in New Zealand, let's meet up and support some of the local businesses that have been pummeled over the past few months. Meet up at Riverside Market by Canterbury Brewer's Collective. We'll grab a table, everyone can grab drinks (alcoholic or non- as is your desire) and noshes. You in?

OK! We've been a roll with one evening after another of dissection of bad to horrible films, odd flashbacks, completely missed musical connections, scary things, and other stuff that one might not feel are that fun and engaging, but oddly enough seem to keep bringing us all back. Same bat time, same bat channel. Eight pm Sunday, 17 May JST. This is a mainly Japan-based crew of Mefites, but the more the merrier if the time zone works for you. [more inside]

It's easy to lose track, but Golden Week is upon us! Let's celebrate Golden Week's Greenery Day (Monday, May 4) together!.

Do you remember where you were the year that "GD" was moved from April 29 to May 4? [more inside]

Japan Online Meetup NUMBER THREE!!!

Hey all. I don't know if you noticed this, but we're in uncharted territory here. If you look at the sidebar, it has a list of "most active cities" for meetups, and we're essentially in second place (a couple cities have had four, sure), and if we have another meetup this Sunday, boom, we'll be one of the most active cities/amorphous regional groupings in all of Metafilterland! Can't you just feel those competitive juices flowing, urging you on to meet once again on Sunday night at 8 for some light chat, witty observations, and hilarious jokes? Edit: changed time to 8, longer explanation in the comments [more inside]

Animal Crossing in-game game?

I'd like to use this thread to figure out if we should, can, or will play a game inside animal crossing. I've heard it's been done but I don't know any details. Would it be funny to play a version of d&d or a similar role playing game? I think maybe? Or keep it simple? Should we try it?

Austin, TX ONLINE mutual aid group planning

Hey, guys. Struck me this morning that it's a good idea for MeFites in town to know where everyone is, what potential needs folks have, and how to help if things get much worse. I'm setting this one as a proposed meetup in Austin in the hopes of getting emails out to folks in town, but right now I have no intention of meeting in-person--just organizing folks in town so that we can set up a network we can use to help one another and familiarize ourselves with anyone who's local on the site. Anyway, here's a space. Thoughts?
