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.

I'm staying at a hotel on Fairfax near the Farmer's Market, but I'm willing to drive if the destination doesn't require me to navigate tiny streets and hunt for parking (I'm a country-boy at heart.) Confirmed! Meetup at 7pm at Loteria Grill at Farmers Market.

It's a pretty big meeting -- certainly there's got to be a few, huh? A cancer-themed meetup? Could be interesting. We could, as a group, kibbitz as we roam the exhibit hall seeking out free trinkets and frozen yogurt treats.

With as many native upper midwesterners that have emigrated to Los Angeles, there should be a lot more Euchre played around these parts. But, there's not. And we need to fix that. And if you don't know how to play, and are curious how under certain circumstances the Jack of Clubs is actually a Spade, and vice versa (well, quad-versa when considering the red cards), read on. You'll love spending time in the barn. [more inside]
I am having a vegan taste-a-thon at this weekend's Montreal Geek Out! around 3 pm. It would be nice if you came by, said hi to me or Shepherd (he's way more prolific on the board than I am) and had yourself a tasty treat. If you like what you see at the Geek Out!, stick around for a board game or two!
