Hi! We have a confirmed date of Saturday 13th July, I’m thinking mid afternoon. No venue as of yet, come in and discuss!

June 14

I am moving back to Denmark after 35 years away (!), and would like to meet any local metafilters.
I will arrive on July 2, and propose to meet sometimes toward the end of the month.
Shall we say Saturday July 27 in Copenhagen?
Depending on the number of people attending, I am open to any suggestions for time, space & things to do.
My Danish is a bit rusty, but I'm sure it will be better by the time we meet.
Thank you,
Hanan [more inside]

June 12

Hey everyone - I'm just reviving this thread, as the old one has dropped off the radar on the IRL page. So far, we've more-or-less established that the weekend of July 20 works pretty well for everyone. Does the Saturday work for everyone (i.e. July 20 proper?) As for venue - you're all more than welcome at my humble abode, but I must stress it is very humble. There is a backyard and BBQ, though. Any other suggestions?

I'm visiting Montréal next week for CrossingsCon, a little con by/for the fandom of Diane Duane's 'Young Wizards' book series. The con starts Friday 6/21, but I'm flying in Thursday 6/20 in the afternoon. Are there any other mefites attending the con? Or, would any Montréal Mefites be interested in meeting up somewhere on 6/20 for dinner? [more inside]

June 3

In this tiny town, can we rustle up enough people to celebrate in style? The anniversary is technically Saturday, July 13th, or we could do Sunday, July 14th instead if that works better for people. [more inside]

May 26

How and when do DC MeFites want to celebrate MeFi's Twentieth? The true anniversary is July 14, and National Ice Cream Day is July 21—perfect for another Ice Cream Social. Or would people prefer to meet in a restaurant or bar?

May 23

I am growing a ton of mint from cuttings and I have several pepper plants I am growing from seed. One of these plants is mine- that leaves 4 extra. I anticipate in late June/early July I will have even more things from seed/cuttings. I have been giving some away as gifts to my best friend and my favorite bartender- but this is getting ridiculous. I don't want to compost viable plants. I propose on one of my days off (all on weekdays, and I wont know which for a bit) we meet at my local bar/restaurant The Dark Horse Inn on Geneva at 5pm on a to be determined weekday in late June/early July and we can all have a chill hang and eat and drink and support a local place and maybe some of you can give my plants a new home.

May 22

It has been almost 20 years since the first post on MeFi, so what an opportune time to get together here in the Triangle of North Carolina! Maybe we can even make this a regional thing and lure some MeFites down from the mountains, off the Outer Banks, and "y'all too, Fort Bragg!" Let's start a discussion in this thread about where, when, and what we want to do in general terms before we nail down the details. [more inside]

This thread is for planning the Metafilter 20th Anniversary meetup in the Twin Cities. The first metafilter post was on July 14th, 1999. Jessamyn is hosting folks in Massachusetts on the 13th and I think that a Saturday might be more convenient for folks than a Sunday. [more inside]

The goal last time was to have another meeting in less than a year from the previous one, so we have a little over 2 months to get organized ;) I propose Benelux on Wellington, May 24 or 25. [more inside]

April 30

Hey everyone, I know we were talking about doing a meetup once the weather got a bit nicer; well, that time has come, but it also occurred to me that July 14th is going to be MeFi's 20th birthday! So maybe we ought to do something that day to mark the occasion? Lemme know what you think!

March 10

I'm going to be in Kyoto from some time on March 12 through some time on March 15. Would anyone be around and interested in grabbing a food some time on March 13 or March 14?

February 21

I know a few MeFites (besides myself) who'll be on the upcoming 2019 JoCo Cruise. Shall we arrange a meetup on the high seas? I expect we can coordinate via Twit-ARR if we can't figure out a time/place before hand.

February 1

The Mr and I will be in Ireland for three weeks, starting Feb 11. I'd love to meetup with fellow mefites while we're there! [more inside]

MUST POSTPONE due to illness/conflicts. New venue! This month we are meeting at Babajan, the restaurant formerly owned by MetaFilter's own jan murray, who still works there most Fridays. The menu includes vegan, vegetarian, and meat options, and the bar serves a rotating list of delightful stuff for beer drinkers. [more inside]

Recently noticed there's a fair bit (well, maybe 5-6) Mefites in Warsaw. Anyone up for a meet? Perhaps when a wee bit warmer?

January 13

After researching further I've decided that this isn't a workable plan at this point - (a) June in the Olympic peninsula part of the world is colder and a lot wetter than I realized; and (b) July or August seems to be the best bet weather-wise, but ALL campsites at all the campgrounds I looked into are already booked for ALL those weekends. I'll try this again next year, but start the planning a couple months earlier. Sorry, everyone!
