Proposed: a night that's kind of like an art "potluck." Bring your arty or crafty project and materials. Prepared to share. Once gathered, we engage in an excellent form of parallel play. Conversation ensues. Called "Bad Art Night" to 1) take the pressure off of trying to be "productive." 2) create permission to try new things and just play around and finally 3) lower the bar for entry -- no artistic talent required.
It's trivia night at the Maple Leaf; it's also a heavy hockey night with 10 games scheduled. Our schedules dictate that Thursday is going to be our night for trivia (at least this week; we can discuss other options). Come join us and help us outnumber the hockey heads!
I'm going to be blarging up New York from the 4th to the 6th of November, and I was wondering if any mefites would want to meet up? It's been a while since I lived in the city, so any suggestions for a venue would be awesome. (I tend to go by the name blarg on #bunnies. I should probably go by that name on metafilter, too!)

From the depths of AskMe and IRL was born Big Ideas Social club, a part-salon, part-gabfest about getting together at bars and chatting about neat ideas, works of art and creations that make us happier people. A year later, I'm ready to bring it to my newly adopted Seattle. [more inside]
Anybody interested in a get together at some point before the end of October? Scheduling wise, who would be up for this? I'm open to any ideas anyone wants to throw out for venue, dates, and activities. I was thinking maybe something after 7:00 the week of the 23rd, just as a jumping off point.
I'll be leaving dear old Blighty and heading over the pond to New York from the 10th - 16th November, in advance of going to a friend's wedding the weekend after. I decided to head out a week early in order to catch up with some old friends and spend some time wandering around the city again (I lived there for a while a few years back). It occurs though, that this presents an opportunity to maybe make some new friends as well. So what about it New York MeFites - fancy meeting up for a few drinks one night?

So Lutoslawski's leaving town to go do something kind of awesome. He's leaving some time around 6 October or so. I think we should have a beer or four or more to send him on his way.

I'd love to have a meetup there for a late lunch Friday or for dinner on Sunday. Any takers? (And FYI, I'm vegetarian, so if you propose a barbecue place, at least make sure it has baked potatoes or some such on hand.)
I'm in Canada, and that means I need some Canadians. Following on from my (presumably) exciting time in Montreal, I'm going to be in Toronto, meeting and greeting at Nirvana (corner College and Bathurst street) at 7pm, after a couple of us have chomped some food at Gandhi's (554 Queen West) at 6.30pm on Thursday September 1.
