Hey, Metafilter! Are you in or around London? Do you like looking at things preserved in jars? Have I got a meetup for you... [more inside]
The plan: walk the length of Broadway from 225th St to the Battery on Saturday, October 8th. This is a 13.7 mile walk along one of the oldest streets in the US. [more inside]
It's been too long, Michigan! How about an early October Meetup in the Ann Arbor / Ypsi area on Sunday, 10/9? It just so happens that a certain Genuine Metafilter Moderator, who is known to appear at libraries, will be appearing at the Ann Arbor Library Sunday afternoon, and a Meetup afterwards would be a good time for all involved. [more inside]
Any mefites available to meetup in in downtown Burlington Vermont the 26th of September? [more inside]
Folks I am as serious as a boring lawyer commercial heart attack with no explosions. We are eating pizza at Pequod's and everyone is going to have to explain the bathroom Gandalf. In conclusion: Pizza. Pequod's. Eating. You. Me. [more inside]
I'm bringing my little family to Houston for a visit on the weekend of September 16-18 and I wanted to see if a few folks want to get together for dinner that Sunday evening (September 18th). [more inside]
So maybe you're in Austin September 16-18 for ACL. Maybe you wanna meetup downtown. Haddington's is a nice place on West 6th, with an outdoor patio and well made drinks. [more inside]

It's been a good while since we descended on the Farmer's Market and wow'ed the west coast with our wacky little card game. Anyone interested in striking up another go? Say, sometime around next Thursday, the 1st?
I'm going to be in Portland this Sunday and would love to meet you folks. How about meeting at the BridgePort BrewPub for some afternoon beers before I catch the evening train back to Seattle? [more inside]
Hey y'all, I'm going to be home in Alabama in a couple weeks. I'm going on a retreat in Birmingham from Friday evening the 26th to Sunday afternoon the 28th. 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. Come say hi! [more inside]
I've come halfway around the world to see what this Canada thing is all about, and I think meeting some Canadians would be a good start. Let's see if we can get some to Cafe Shaika. [more inside]
I'll be in Sydney next week for a conference and workshop, and was hoping to meet up with some MeFites while I'm there, if I haven't left it too late for people to make plans. [more inside]
After you go to the meetup in Crown Heights, head over to our new place in Kensington for a potluck dinner. My boyfriend, (The Rt Hon.) MP will be making some delicious vegan chili, and we welcome other vegan dishes (homemade or storebought), or (of course) beer. [more inside]
I will be in Shanghai August 14 to August 16 or August 17. I'd love some company for beer, coffee, tea, a meal or a tour around the city. [more inside]
It'll be another packed house at the Maple Leaf Pub as Team MeFi takes on all trivia challengers, and tackles the steak and baked potato dinner and awesome cheese-stuffed jalapeños. Trivia's at 8, but the house has been so stuffed lately, we need to start arriving earlier to stake out a table, so I've set the start time for 7. Be there or be a regular quadrilateral!
DjangoCon is taking place in Portland the first week of Sept. (9/4--9/10) and I'd love to meet up with some Portland MeFites while I'm there! [more inside]
Hey Seattle MeFites, I'm moving to your neck of the woods to go to UW in September. Let's meet up so you can teach me the ways of this ornery town. [more inside]
It's time for Austin folks to beat the heat in some indoor, air-conditioned venue like the Dog & Duck on a weekend afternoon. I'm looking at the weekend of the 27th/28th, although I could be convinced to do Sunday the 21st or maybe the first weekend in September. Venue suggestions other than the Dog & Duck welcome, as well as date requests. ETA: After discussion in the comments, we have a meetup at the Dog & Duck on Sunday August 28 at 2 pm. See you there, Austin folks!
I'm staying near the MixC mall; seems like there's a couple of bars close-by.
Let's meet up at the 1-Up and play some old school video games. At least, the ones that aren't out of order...19th and Blake St. [more inside]
Let's get together! [more inside]
Hey all, I'm going to be in Sydney for a couple days next week and would love to meet up at a bar and see those of you from MeFi I never get to meet in person. I have no idea where to meet up, but Thursday night next week (August 4th) somewhere downtown by the circular quay would work best for me.
City Works Campaign (formerly The LA Project) are launching an initiative titled LA Here and Now to leverage and integrate the skills of local programmers, software developers, designers, community activists, urban planners, and urban thinkers into real solutions for our city’s problems. [more inside]
I moved to Cork a few months ago and we're finally settled, so I think it's beyond time to arrange a meetup. I would love to meet some local mefites and have a yarn. I'm here with my non-mefi husband (don't worry, he's still nice) who will be tagging along. We're open to suggestions for times and places since we don't know the local scene at all. Update: I added the date and time and stuff, hopefully it's OK! The google maps API here is kind of crap and I can't make it any more accurate than this, so if you need directions look up The River Lee hotel on the google maps website and it will point right at it. [more inside]
I am keen on meeting Montreal MeFites. And considering warm weather is in scarce supply for the majority of the year, this means pints on a patio! [more inside]
The original "Let's Walk Broadway" meetup has been postponed until more reasonable temperatures return. But there's a nifty little street carnival happening in my neighborhood that was along the original route. We should check it out! [more inside]
Amon Tobin is coming back to SF, playing at The Warfield on Saturday, October 1, 2011. I'm coming up for the 9pm show, and have heard from one other MeFite who is planning on going to the show. Anyone want to meet up some while before?
Steak and Geeks Who Drink pub trivia. What could be better? I know! Our score could be better! Last time's 7th place finish (out of 15 teams) was like the episode of Cheers when Cliff went on Jeopardy! and found categories that were custom-made for him... only exactly the opposite. Still, we'll pick ourselves up and dust off and try again! Don't forget to come early to stake out a good table and enjoy yummy yummy steak!
Short notice - anyone in Munich interested in meeting up this week? [more inside]
Short notice! My partner and I will be in Portland from tomorrow evening (Tuesday, 19 July) to Saturday. I'd love to see if anybody is up for a night of dinner/drinks somewhere in the area. [more inside]
The people have spoken! Pub Italia, August 26th, 7 pm.

Pulp is playing Brixton Academy! Holy crap! [more inside]
Feeling down? Your Wednesday plans not shaping up as you'd like? Then come have dinner with me, my boyfriend, (The Rt Hon.) MP and some awesome non-mefites. Bring a (vegan) dish, or a beverage, and yourself. We're taking care of a few dishes ourselves, so if you can't think of a vegan dish to bring, don't sweat it and just bring drinks. [more inside]
Hey guys! It's time again for Boston/Cambridge area Geeks Who Drink pub trivia. We must continue our trivia dominance over the rest of New England nerdery. We will of course be at Tommy Doyle's in Harvard Square again, but your guess is as good as mine as to which floor. Maybe we'll be on the roof. Who knows--it's all part of the adventure. At least one of us will be wearing a MeFi t-shirt.
Bring an instrument you like, play music together for a couple of hours. [more inside]
How does next Saturday, August 13 sound? Lunch and bocce ball, Horner Park.
The Siawnses are taking a wee holiday to China; we will be in Beijing on the night of the August 12th (among other nights). Do any Beijinger MeFites fancy a meetup then? Is a Friday night a dumb time to meet in Beijing? Anybody know a good place to go? Please feel free to give advice on locations/times, because I basically have no clues when it comes to what's what in Beijing.
(Last week got postponed due to Real Life interference.) Time for more Geeks Who Drink pub trivia! We've placed 2nd twice and 3rd once in our last three events. Let's go for first place this time! Maple Leaf Pub, July 7th, 8:00 PM. Get there early for steak and potato!
