My best mefi friend elephantsvanish is in Philly now, and we keep talking about wanting to do more regular meetups, so let’s welcome her to the city with a meetup. LAST MINUTE VENUE CHANGE, WE ARE NOW AT HADRAMOUT, 45TH AND WALNUT. [more inside]
We're confirmed for Sunday 2/10 @ 2pm, Frankford Hall. Soooo it's been since April of last year since any meetup happened, and that was just me and dances_with_sneetches who was visiting from Puerto Rico. It's been since like 2016 since we had a board game meetup. Yikes! [more inside]
I'm from Puerto Rico and don't make it to the states often. I will be in Philadelphia for a conference from Sunday May 6 to Wednesday afternoon on the 9th. Proposing a casual meet-up, beers or somethun, to meet actual living MeFites.
I haven't seen any meetups proposed for Philadelphia, so I'm wondering if there is an active enough contingent there to warrant putting one together. Philly MeFites, are you there?
Ok, let's schedule this! Tuesday, March 15th, at 7pm, at Smith's Restaurant and Bar at 39 S 19th St, Philadelphia, PA 19103. I don't know how crowded it gets, so we should try to get there a little early to grab a table. Go Team Metafilter!
Have you seen the numerous posts on the blue and the green praising roleplaying games and want to give them a try? Or are you an experienced gamer looking for a group? If so, I am looking for 1-2 players to join my Pathfinder campaign. Our emphasis is on roleplaying over combat though there is certainly some of that too. No experience in Pathfinder or other RPGs necessary. Campaign blurb & logistics beneath the fold [more inside]
I've been really out of the MetaFilter loop and would like to fall back in again. There must be some MeFites still here in Philly and I would love to hang out with them. My wife and I have a rambunctious almost 3 year old and it would be nice to bring him along too, so ideally a place that is kid-friendly would be great. [more inside]
Time to head back to the warm confines of Frankford Hall for some gaming and drinking! We're going to shoot for Sunday Mar 16th at 1 pm. Hope to see you there! [more inside]

OCTOBER 10th, Tired Hands! Hello, Main Line! Well, Jessypie has been doing an amazing job organizing meetups in Philly, but I know I'm not the only one out here on the ol' R5. So I propose a meetup for the suburban amongst us! Ardmore can now boast of its own microbrewery, Tired Hands, which offers artisanal beer and cheeses and other nice things. Are other MeFis into these things? [more inside]
Is anyone interested in getting together to play board/card games? [more inside]
fiercekitten are I will be visiting Philly March 22-27 and thought a meetup seemed like a good idea. [more inside]
It has been way too long since we had a Philly meetup. I vote bowling at that awesome place in Northern Liberties.
The Philly meetup to see ludwig_van's band was excellent but small. It's time for another big one, I think. (Updated: Informal, probably-not-big meetup at Cantina tonight in South Philly.) [more inside]
A bunch of people are meeting up to view this performance. Free admission and beers for under $5 Anyone remember when that was a lot for a beer? [more inside]
