If you are a Jordan, Jesse, Go! fan, Mr. Jordan Morris himself will be doing a meetup in Seattle. I will be in attendance, and I assume there's some overlap between the MeFi crowd and the MaxFun crowd, hence the crosspost. The event details have already been hammered out on the MaxFun side of things: Shorty's, Fri Dec 17th, starting at 8pm
Cherrywood Coffeehouse, Wed., Dec. 15th at 7pm. Come meet and welcome out-of-towner xenophile and in-towners all-the-rest-of-us. [more inside]
The wife and I will be in England, Wales and Ireland over the last 2 weeks of 2010, and would love to catch-up with old friends and make some new ones. However, our schedule is rather tight, so we hope folks will be okay with our selecting the date, while you lot pick a place to make merry. [more inside]
If you are unaware of Scalefree's situation, you can check out his Askme question, and my subsequent Metalk post. Let's head to the Standard Tap sometime soon to show him a merry time! [more inside]

Hey South Bay folks. Many people have expressed interest in meeting up. Shall we go ahead and have one? What are days that work best for you? Also feel free to suggest a meetup venue if you've got something in mind.

I'm a US resident visiting Mysore for a while, and would like to meet local MeFites. Any date between 23 and 30 November works for me; want to grab some chaat? My Kannada is terrible so I'll be speaking English and nodding.
It's been a while...are all you Yorkshire folk ready for another get together? I am! [more inside]

OK, stupidly late call for this but if anyone can do it, the NY Mefi people can. I'm over from the UK to check out my friend's new bar that looks like it is right up your average (& not so average) NYMeFite's street. A beer & spirits menu to die for and a rock-centric music playlist. This could be jonmc's spiritual home... [more inside]
So far we have agreed on Sunday November 21st lunch at Merkato.
Thanks to this AskMe, I've been given the confidence to start Big Ideas Social Club, a cross between happy hour, a 17th century salon, and the coffee shops in Steven Johnson's Where Good Ideas Come From. As the brain trust of the city, I want DC MeFites in on the ground floor but hope to draw in some other fun people as well. Help me figure out the details? [more inside]
Hey Mefites, I'm sure most of you already have your Halloween plans in place, but if there are any other last minute stragglers (like, ahem, me) I'm meeting some friends at Jupiter's in Berkeley for some good beer, some live music, and some delightful times. If you are going to be in the area, come join us! I'll be the valkyrie.
Hey Guys! Group interest has shifted from the Bizarre to the Strange! Let's meet at Strange Matter for lunch at 1:00 on Saturday, December 11th. [more inside]

I'll be in Washington DC for a little bit and would be game for a meetup on either the 14th, 15th or 16th. Interested? Evenings are better for me, it'd be cool to go for drinks or something. (Preferably in a place where conversation is actually possible, since Mefites have interesting delicious brains.)
Hey, it's been a while. MeFi party at Quelab Friday Oct. 29th. 7pm.
turtlegirl and I will be in New York City for one night only (Sunday, 17 October) to visit family (MeFi noob, bellebelle!) and would like to do a meetup in Brooklyn. Hugh Janus suggested Spuyten Duyvil knowing how much we like good beer. Hope others can join us!
Hi Mefites -- Mrs. Dream and I will be in London on vacation later this month. Anyone interested in a Sunday meetup on October 24th? Let's meet at Walkers of Whitehall at 1pm for lunch and drinks, then walk down to Churchill's War Room, which is open until 6pm. Get as drunk as you like in honor of Churchill. I'll set up a MeFi sign on the table at Walkers. I'll update later with a phone number if I'm successful in jailbreaking my iphone and getting a SIM card.
Vegetarian kjötsúpa will also somehow be served! [more inside]
The meetup sidebar has been exploding all over the place, but it's basically dried up here in NYC. We missed the entire month of September. This must be rectified. I propose we meet up at a bar somewhere on the weekend of Oct. 15-17. Update: we will be having said meetup at Revival on Saturday, Oct. 16 at 8pm.
I've just moved back to Liverpool after 10 years in the mysterious void beyond the M57. Would anyone like to meet up for a drink in town at some point? [more inside]
The long national nightmare of getting my visa is over and I am coming to Birmingham to study next week. Would anyone in the Midlands (and elsewhere) be interested in a meet-up the weekend of October 8/9? It's been five years since I have been in Birmingham so suggestions of great places will be greatly and gladly appreciated.
Meet like-minded Metafilterites (and visitors!) in Rio de Janeiro in the next couple of weeks? I'm not posting a bar yet, though I'd prefer somewhere around Lapa, because I'd like to see if there's any interest and where people are living/visiting...
I'll be among the masses going to ACL this year, 8-10 October 2010. How about brunch on Sunday? Somewhere outside the park would be good, and those of us with tickets could head in afterward. I'm not a local, so ideas about a venue would be much appreciated, if anyone's interested.
I'm an American studying abroad in Beijing this semester, and I'd like to break out of the college bubble a little and meet some local Mefites. I obviously don't know the city all that well, so if people wanted to meet up, it'd probably be better for someone else to propose a venue. Anyone interested in meeting up sometime in the next few weeks?
3 days. A large number of bluegrass bands. Fresh air. Sunshine (ehhh, maybe). Food. Joy. [more inside]
It looks like the last Anchorage meetup was in March... time for another one? I'm still fairly new to town and would love to meet some Mefites. Thursdays and Fridays aren't good for me, but any other evening should work. I will defer to anyone who's been around longer than a summer for venue suggestions!
So the three-day Matador at 21 show is coming up October 1–3 at The Palms in Las Vegas. Are there any MeFites who either are going to the show or live in Las Vegas who might want to meet up at some point over the weekend? [more inside]
I'm going to be in New Orleans Saturday night on a spur of the moment trip, and I'm going to be drinking alone unless anybody is up for a very short-notice meetup. I don't know anything about good bars in New Orleans, so the location would be up to someone else.
Pretty much what it says on the tin: Savannah Mefites, let's meet and greet! I'm thinking on some Saturday afternoon, at Mellow Mushroom or Crystal Beer Parlor, but am open to suggestions. What say you?
Let's have a back to school NJ meetup! I propose the Princeton area, as it's centrally located, fun, near several colleges/unis and we had a successful one there before! [more inside]
Our inaugural rendezvous this past Monday night was un grande succ0232;s so we've decided to continue on a bi-weekly basis. Monday and Tuesday nights seem to be best (for now). We need a better venue than Caf0233; de la Presse so please suggest some better and BART-friendly alternatives! I propose Monday 9/27 as our next date. Thoughts?
Metafiltrians of London, I will be in the capital on the evening of the 21st: does anyone fancy a wee meetup? I haven't yet sorted out accommodation and so forth, but I expect I'll be somewhere in the approximate vicinity of Imperial College. If people are up for it and know a good place to go nearby, please suggest it; I barely know London at all, so I'm relying on youse for ideas. I wasn't thinking of anything big, probably just drinks and maybe a meal. Hopefully see you in a week or so's time!
