Toronto meetup on the horizon

Well, all, we have not had a meetup in a while now, or even a couple of whiles. Patio season is behind us, but Storm Crow Manor is descending upon us. Seems like as good a rationale as any to assemble and have a free-ranging discussion of stuff. [more inside]

Folly Brewpub Trivia

Since a few people expressed interest who couldn't make it last time, trivia is on again this Tuesday at Folly Brewpub. Trivia starts at 7pm, but I'm generally there from 6:30. Last time we had a resounding win, so we need to try to retain our crown. Very low stakes, only a round of beer, but always fun.

Broadway Waltz

A very low-key social partner dance: easy to try for newbies; traditional energetic as well as modern gentle music for the partner dances; an open-role dance for those who like it. From 7:20-8pm we teach a free lesson for *total beginners* that will get you through Walking That Counts as Dancing, and give you a try at either rotary waltz or polka, which are gloriously whirly. You don't need to dress up or come with a partner. [more inside]

Autumn Gathering / Bojack Horseman Season 5!

Hi all - Bojack Horseman Season 5 airs on Netflix in 2 weeks, on Friday 9/14. Since we’ve done a Bojack meetup the past couple of years, I wanted to gauge interest in doing another one this year. It sounds like that weekend doesn't work for ya'll, so now I'm leaning towards an Autumn get-together a weekend in October, and we can watch Bojack if folks want, and eat, drink and be merry :-) [more inside]

DC Progressives

The DC DSA chapter's next general meeting is 3-5pm on Sunday, 9/9, and I thought it would be great for those of us who are going or who are interested in politics and activism generally to have a place to talk shop afterward. You are also absolutely welcome if you aren't interested in the DSA -- this meetup is truly for DC progressives of all stripes. The cafe, Le Pain Quotidien, is chosen for its proximity to Dupont Circle Metro.

I was wondering if anyone woukd like to join us for the next trivia night on 11th September so we can have a few more team members, or possibly another team. The prize is just a round of beers, but they have a good range of questions and it's always a fun night.
