I'm going to be in Paris from April 30 to May 5 and May 10 to 14. Any Parisian mefites up for a meetup? I'm open for anything. I'll also be in Strasbourg (not, in the end, Besancon) and Nancy.
Any MeFite Museum folk planning to be in Houston for the AAM convention in May? And if so, any interest in trying to set up a meetup?
The Chicago Book Club's next selection is The Golden Age, a twisty cult item by Michal Ajvaz. We'll be meeting to discuss it at the splendid 3rd Coast Cafe. [more inside]

I'll be in Seattle the weekend of April 8-10, and I'd love to see you all. Yes, all of you. Saturday evening works best for me - 7:30? 8 pm? But I leave it to more experienced Seattleites to choose a venue. mrzarquon will be in town as well, so you get two for the price of one! Site confirmed: Shorty's it is! Thanks, Jawn - one of us will search you out to let you know we're there.
Short notice, I know, but two lights and I are going to a conference in San Francisco this weekend and will be around from Friday evening to Tuesday evening. (Related Ask.) [more inside]
Any mefites in the Copenhagen/Malmö/Lund area? I'm studying in Lund until the end of May, and figure Copenhagen is big enough that there must be some of us around here... Perhaps April 15, April 17, or sometime the week of the 18th?
It's starting to warm up, the pubs are plentiful, how about an East Midlands meetup? I'm based in Nottingham, you may be around that area, and it might be a delight. Heck, we could go to the Trip to Jerusalem and go hang out in one of the caves...
Northern New Englanders care to gather in The Big City of Portland? I'm thinking perhaps the weekend of April 17th, but the calendar's wide open, as is the choice of venue -- I don't live in Portland, so somebody else can make an executive decision on that.
We haven't have a meetup in over a year and that is a damn shame. Spring has officially sprung. Let's celebrate. [more inside]

Hey, Triangle Mefites! I'll be back in the area on April 8th, and I'd love to meetup again! [more inside]
Anyone interested in seeing the Will Eisner New York exhibition at MoCCA? After some discussion, I figured Saturday, April 16 might be an auspicious date. I've been to the space before, and though the place isn't huge, this one looks fun. It's $5. Could do lunch before in Chinatown/SoHo also or just meet up at museum at 2:30.
Monday, March 21 (tomorrow!) 7:00 p.m. at the Dark Horse, Boulder, Colorado.
We're meeting on April Fools at the Rackhouse! I'll be there at 5:30pm, and I imagine it will go until at least 8:00pm

Next up for the Chicago Book Club: Inherent Vice, by Thomas Pynchon. There will be books, beer, banter. What more could you ask for? [more inside]
As I've mentioned at the last couple of meetups, I'd love to do a Mefite karaoke happy hour at the Highball. If we go between 4:30 and 7:00 on a weekday, we can get a free room and happy hour prices on drinks. [more inside]
My first meetup was fun. Let's do it again. In Denver. Or Boulder. Or Castle Rock. [more inside]
Is anyone down in the land o'sun that I left 11 years ago? I'm not seeing Phoenix as up in the most active in the last 3 months, and that makes me sad. [more inside]
It has been way too long since we had a Philly meetup. I vote bowling at that awesome place in Northern Liberties.
I'm leaving for Atlanta on the weekend of March 12th. But before I go, I'd like to meet up with some of my favorite people at one of my favorite bars in New York! [more inside]
It's on. Preliminary discussions zeroed in on Twain's. Looking forward to seeing everybody.
Bowling! It will be fun, no need to be any good at bowling (I'm useless, so you will probably be better than me). Let me know if you're in, so I have an idea of numbers. After bowling there will no doubt be food and drink somewhere nearby. (The map is not entirely accurate, but putting in the correct address somehow screws up Google Maps and brings up a location on the East River.)
Hi everybody! parmanparman is heading up our way to do some work/research and I thought that'd be a lovely excuse to scrobble together what few (but awesome) MeFites we have around here. What say we get together this Friday, February 25th, 6:30pm for food and drink? Venue tbd, suggestions welcome!

Team Austin ran out of gas on the white elephant exchange, but it would be nice to say hi sometime this month before the big SXSW meetup that is no doubt coming down the pipe. [more inside]

Any mefites around Istanbul? [more inside]
Are there enough MeFites in the Tennessee River Valley to make a meetup? Maybe on a Saturday evening in the middle-or-end of March? Maybe at the Public House on Magnolia?
Salut, Montreal! Wendy BD and I will be in Montreal for a few days at the end of February and would be pleased to see Montrealer mefites while there. [more inside]
A year ago we hosted a meetup at our home in which there was much Rock Band played and liberal drinking, and a fine time was had by all. We would like to do it again. If you came to our last meetup we'd love to see you again. If you didn't, we'd love to meet you for the first time. Our home is in Winter Garden, FL, and we are proposing a meetup for either Saturday, February 12th or Saturday, February 19th. Any takers? [more inside]

Hi folks, I just moved to Wellington recently and would love to meet the local mefite population. Anyone up for a meetup? [more inside]
Mrs. schyler523 and I are moving to the area in early February and it would be nice to have a nice pint and whatnot. We'll likely be too busy to hang out until the 15th or so, but any date after that is probably fine. We're familiar with Jack of the Wood (our favorite bar) and the beergarden, but other ideas would be welcomed.
