After noting the success of previous Oregon-Washington regional campouts, some California MeFites suggested one down thataway. UPDATE: Here is a link to the spreadsheet to coordinate meals, equipment, etc. [more inside]
Assuming the weather holds tomorrow, I'll be in Orange County! Let's get together. [more inside]
OK so you're not into amaro, is there another option for Bay Area Mefites? THERE IS NOW. This venue is a cheap-and-cheerful alehouse with a variety of beers on tap. This is strictly a casual event -- swing by to say 'hi', leave when you want. No biggie. [more inside]
A meetup in the leafy suburbs of the East Bay: Walnut Creek. Venue: Pinky's Pizza. Good beer in bottles and on tap, and decent pizza. Also: Addams Family pinball machine. [more inside]
I've just registered for VidCon, a convention for online video/Youtube creators and enthusiasts taking place in Anaheim CA from June 26 to 28, and will be there an extra day. It's my first time and I'm wondering if there are any other Mefites going. After some discussion I think the best place will the evening of June 29 at the House of Blues in Downtown Disney, which is accessible free of charge. That said, if you are going to Vidcon, let me know!
Hi folks! In recognition of World Listening Day 2013, I'm presenting an all-night (9pm-5am), immersive, in-the-dark concert of field recordings, ambience, drones, found sound, shortwave recordings, etc., in a secret location outside of Joshua Tree National Park. [more inside]
I bought himself a house earlier this year in Eureka, and it's meetup time! There's a MeFite who just touched down in Arcata last month, so let's give him a hearty welcome to our wonderful area. Meet your MeFi neighbors and my kitteh posse. On the menu: BBQ, homemade pizza. Leaning towards September 21 (as it's my 41st birthday!) but I've got plenty of flexibility; most Fridays/Saturdays in Sept are open. Event flyer. Feel free to bring grillables, appetizers, etc. BYOB -- but there'll be a 12-pack on hand.
As part of Obsura Day (MeFi post), there will be a tour of "upcycled" art projects in Cambria, though Nitt Witt Ridge is the only location listed so far. Tours appear to repeat, starting on the hour, from 10 am to 4 pm. The suggested donation is $10, and you can offer more or less, but you'll have to email someone about that. [more inside]
As part of his California travels, MeFi's Beloved Cold Chef will be driving up to Hearst Castle on Wednesday, June 8th and stopping for 'late breakfast/brunch' in SLO. I have enticed him to join me at the World Famous Madonna Inn coffee shop at 10AM or later (time very approximate after drive from L.A.) and all other SLO/Central Coast MeFites are also invited.

I'm coming into town before MaxFunCon and I'd like to meetup with some L.A. MeFites on Thursday, June 9, 2011. I'm staying at a hotel on Fairfax near the Farmer's Market, but I'm willing to drive if the destination doesn't require me to navigate tiny streets and hunt for parking (I'm a country-boy at heart.) Confirmed! Meetup at 7pm at Loteria Grill at Farmers Market.
