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.

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.

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.

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]

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!

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.

Hey, moonbird and I are coming to Savannah for a couple of days. Granted, those days are a Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (we're leaving Wednesday) but we'd still love to get together for drinks or dinner or something along those lines! We're staying downtown at the delightfully named Thunderbird Inn & planning on mostly walking. Anywhere y'all recommend is great; we're easy to please and don't know the city at all.
