Welcome to ReBar! As requested, a place in DUMBO with excellent food. I'm starting this one a little earlier than usual, but feel free to come when you can! I'll get us a table.
Greg_Ace's place is the.. the place! Saturday April 7, start showing up around 4PM or so. Bring some potluck-y foods (Greg will probably smoke some meats for us) and/or beverages (fermented or non). Gaming is going to be a mix of One Thousand Blank White Cards and Cards Against Humanity, and maybe even some regular cards. And who knows what else?!
Hoperaiseshell needs to visit the University of Wisconsin for her vet school and I am tagging along for the ride. We will arrive in Madison around the evening time of Thursday March 23 and leave Friday evening. [more inside]
*****CANCELLED: The Greenwald talk has been cancelled. We'll have a meetup another time.****** Glenn Greenwald is speaking at the University of Washington on civil liberties erosion, on Thursday April 5th at 7:00pm. Perhaps it would be fun to attend the event and then head to the Avenue for drinks after? Here is a link to the event [more inside]
Don't pay the ferryman! (unless you want to!) Meetup for those of us on Whidbey Island WA or those who are willing to pay a small fee to join us! Food drinks and talk; I will bring Fluxx and Pirate Fluxx if we feel like being silly. [more inside]
Hola LA MeFi, We're meeting up Bigfoot West on Thursday, April 5th. They have a happy hour between 7 and 9, so we're gonna start the meet somewhere in there and keep going if we prove to be interesting enough company. I'll probably pop in around 8/8:30 and I have this bright pink sweatshirt that has inadvertently become my trademark and you can find me that way. There's a kind of corner booth in the back right that tends to empty-ish even when busy, so it might make sense to try and say Hi there. Any Q's, just send me a MeMail!
My wife and I are coming back to Albuquerque, with baby light thief in tow. We're arriving on March 30 and leaving on April 7, and our plans are open. UPDATE: date, time and location set! [more inside]
Meetup in Abu Dhabi for any Mefites who might be moved to attend. [more inside]
I suggested a Knoxville meetup last year but it fizzled. Never one to learn from my mistakes, I'm trying again! Can we scrounge up enough East Tennesseans for a meetup?
Let's do it again! [more inside]
Last time we (Davy Jones' Locker) wound up in solo possession of second place, netting us a $15 bar tab for this week. The previous excursion we (In the Vault, Bob) wound up winning second in a tiebreak. Can we make it a third straight trip to medal territory? Join us at the Kelvin Arms and see! (MexicanYenta's suggested team name: Grand Forks Olive Garden.) Meet at 7:30, trivia at 8. Edit: Postponed for a week due to Real Life.
Back in the earthquake thread I made an offer to buy drinks for the folks in Tokyo. That trip got cancelled, but I'll be back over the weekend of April 14th. [more inside]

Last year's First Ever Seoul Metafilter Meetup was fun. There were three of us, and each of us drank for four, so it was crowded. Anyone up for doing it again? I'll buy at least a couple rounds... (and dare I imagine a Wonderchicken sighting?)

Previously: Last time, we won the second-place tiebreaker in sudden death. And quizmaster Scott is buying us a round this time for the win for best team name. And so Dr. Metafilter finds himself leaping from trivia night to trivia night, striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home. ..Oh, wait, what? It's just Leap Day, not Quantum Leap Day? Guess we'll have to put the DVDs down and go out for trivia at the Kelvin Arms.
Following up on this MeTa thread about meeting up at SXSW this year in Austin. Proposed date is Saturday, March 10. Proposed location is Dive bar. [more inside]

A whopping eight months after setting foot in Toronto to examine people's financial statements and tell them how they're doin' it wrong, I went and landed myself a job in the US doing stuff that's much more up my alley. Pending approval by our friendly neighbourhood border service agents, I will be leaving Toronto for the brighter pastures of North Carolina in about eight weeks. I'd like to see my favourite Toronto-KWC-Buffalo-ans sometime before I leave. March 31st, 8 PM, Local 4. Be there. [more inside]
I am on the road again and will see some of you in Montreal this Saturday. [more inside]

Grand Central Bowling, 3pm on March 18. Probably food/drink nearby afterwards.
We were thisclose to a second-place finish last time we met for Geeks who Drink trivia at the Kelvin Arms. The Best Team Name theme will be that old Dating Game staple: Where is the strangest/best/worst place to “make whoopee?” We'll be in the vault at 7:30 for trivia at 8.
Meetup time/place/date set! I hope everyone can make it. We live in the middle of nowhere and seeing some friendly mefite faces would be lovely.
It is with great excitement that I propose a Wellington Meet up for Metafilter, to be attended by mathowie, in town for Webstock this year. [more inside]

I'm going to 360 MacDev in Denver. So, I've got Thursday and Saturday (Feb. 2 and 4) evenings to kill. I'd love to kill one of them with some MeFites! Is anyone up for hanging out somewhere in downtown Denver any of those nights?
Because I am lazy, here is the description from the Cal Academy: What fun are bourbon and whiskey tastings without a mechanical bull and some honky tonk? That's right: this week, sample the wares of Bulleit Bourbon and George Dickel Whisky, and learn what each purveyor does to craft their unique spirits, then take a spin on a mechanical bull in the piazza. Plus, enjoy the acoustic stylings of Jeanie and Chuck's Country Roundup, and learn about the science of distilling from Nancy Fraley, Director of Research at the American Distilling Institute. Additional music by Miles the DJ. [more inside]
