DragonCon 2015 Missed Connections Thread / Meetup Coordination

Labor Day weekend is almost upon us again, and that means DragonCon in Atlanta. (Please don't call it Dragon*Con, they had their *-hole removed two years ago at no small expense.) Even though an actual organized MeFi meetup is not likely to survive everyone's various convention plans, we can at least use this thread to talk about those plans. NOTE: like last year, the time and place listed are for the registration line, the event itself lasts Thursday-Monday, and is spread across 5 high-rise hotels and a nearby convention center.

The Apu Trilogy at E Street Cinema

Satyajit Ray's Apu Trilogy was recently restored and is currently showing at the E Street Cinema. On Saturday, June 27, I'm going to do a triple feature, starting at 4:30 PM and finishing just shy of midnight. Do any DC-area MeFites have the interest and gluteal fortitude to join me?

Star Trek, TNG Happy Hour, Round 26, Version 2.0

After last week's tribute to Nimoy (is there something in my eye?) we're back on track with "The Measure of a Man", said to be the first truly great episode of ST:TNG, where our heroes grapple with the question of Data's personhood. Plus, weird blue drinks as usual. [more inside]

Delicious Foodstuffs Tour of DC Begins with Fish in the Hood

The winner of our food poll is Fish in the Hood, located in Park View, DC. (Easy walk from Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro.) (Also, potentially, in the 'hood?) I'm going to go ahead and simplify this process and pick out a date myself: Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 7:00 PM. It's near some great bars so a Saturday night should be pretty ideal for anyone who wants a night out on the town. Hope to see you all there! [more inside]

Year-end meetup

The holidays are upon us, and I'm not going to be able to organize a final gaming meetup, because my weekends are pretty much booked until the end of the year. (If someone else wants to organize one, please feel free, though! I'll pick it up again next year.) But a bunch of random weeknights are free... anyone feel like drinks and/or dinner, on December 8, 9 or 10, maybe? Confirmed for Dec 8 at RFD in Chinatown.

DC summer board and card games meetup

I'm not saying you should wear your straw boater after Labor Day, but I am saying that summer doesn't actually end until autumn starts, so we've still got a few weeks to squeeze in a summer gaming meetup. [more inside]

Let's drink beer and buy toys!

In the Weird DC thread, troika mentioned that Churchkey + going to the incredibly bizarre yet oddly charming Monarch Novelties could be a great meetup combination, so I say: why not? We'll meet up at Monarch at noon, and then hang out at Churchkey until whenever. Feel free to drop in at any time in the afternoon.

Washington DC is open again!

I'm going to be in DC on Friday November 1 for a meeting (which just got finally confirmed, even though everyone in the department I contract for has been furloughed recently and so it hasn't had any organizers...) and I'll be staying overnight. Wondering if any mefites want to meet up for dinner and/or drinks? I'm staying in Dupont Circle, but happy to head anywhere. Update: we have added a restaurant venue.

DC meetup at Tunnicliff's

Some MeFites were together last night and decided it was time to call a meetup on the east side of town, in particular at Tunnicliff's, which is relatively spacious, quiet, and near the metro. MrMoonPie suggested we meet around inauguration time. Perhaps a weeknight the week prior? The inauguration is on Monday, January 21.

The Just Ones

I'm seeing a friend in Camus's Les Justes (The Just Ones) on Saturday night. Anyone want to join me? He writes, It's Albert Camus being challenging as hell. Unreasonably passionate characters slamming up against terrorism, morality, violence begetting violence, death... also I'm rocking a pretty ridiculous beard. ... There's a Metro station, or you just do 395 to 110 to Wilson. Tickets.

Big Ideas Social Club Returns

Since you helped me start it last November, Big Ideas Social Club has been going strong: we're an entertaining cross between a 17th century salon, a group of bar buddies and the funniest guys and gals you've ever met. Our sixth meeting will be on Groundhog Day and, since it's been a while since I've done it formally, I want to invite MeFites out. [more inside]

Washington, DC - come out come out wherever you are

Hi all. We moved to DC at the beginning of December and although I've already met a few of the area's fine MeFites, I'd like to meet more. My own special snowflakeness: I have a toddler and my significant other comes home late, so weekends are best. Otherwise, what works for others?

Vigil for the Tuscon Shooting Victims

Here is the Facebook page. Last night this was primarily a vigil for Representative Giffords, but now that it looks like she will survive, it'll be a vigil for the other victims and in opposition to politically-motivated violence. If you're in DC, please consider joining my wife and I there this evening.

DC meetup at 8:00 at Atomic Billiards

I'll be in Washington DC for a little bit and would be game for a meetup on either the 14th, 15th or 16th. Interested? Evenings are better for me, it'd be cool to go for drinks or something. (Preferably in a place where conversation is actually possible, since Mefites have interesting delicious brains.)
