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!
Any Mefites participating in the Sydney Running Festival on September 19 (Sunday)? We could meet up at the Opera House (or somewhere around those parts) after the races are over.
A long, drawn out nightmare with my visa is finally all sorted out and I'll be in London from the 15th-17th! If you're not too meetup'ed out, please come have a celebratory drink with me. Looking forward to it (you have no idea how much)! [more inside]
update: looks like we're on for Saturday, October 9th, at 4 PM, at the Vermont Pub and Brewery. I'm tall and skinny and have glasses. I will try to get there a bit early. Looking forward to meeting everyone IRL. [more inside]

There hasn't been one in a few weeks. How about 25-September? [more inside]
The Philly meetup to see ludwig_van's band was excellent but small. It's time for another big one, I think. (Updated: Informal, probably-not-big meetup at Cantina tonight in South Philly.) [more inside]
Citizens of Oklahoma! Mefi's own Miko will be in town September 19th-25th. We must feast! and quaff! and seriously there have been like two Oklahoma meetups ever and the last was three years ago.

I just moved to London for grad school. Anyone up for a pint? [more inside]
I'm going to be pretty much on my own in Vienna during the days on September 9th and 10th while my partner is busy speaking at a conference. Anyone else going to be in the area then, and interested in some sort of meetup? (Lunch together would be ideal, since I'll be busy in the evenings.)
I'd like to have somewhat regularly scheduled French conversation meetups. Anyone else in the Bay Area interested? If so, please throw out some good meeting times/ideal frequency/locations. [more inside]
7pm Friday 3rd September Bushwick Country Club, 618 Grand Street, New York, NY 11211. Nearest subway Metropolitan Avenue-Lorimer St, G. Third continent meetup opportunity! Show me how it's done, New York! I will be alone in New York for Labor Day Weekend. I thought it would be good to have a meetup. It will be my first Metafilter meetup in the USA. I have previously been to meetups in the UK and Australia. Sorry for the short notice. [more inside]
As luck would have it, I'll be visiting Denver and Colorado Springs September 12-18, with just enough time to meet the digerati.
As the esteemed iamkimiam is due to make her arrival onto English soil soon, I submit that we should have a bit of a do in her honour. (As in, we sit in a pub with some cloudy drinks and make increasingly little sense over the course of a number of hours.) [more inside]
Okay. So I'm doing it! This is the official thread for the definite North Shore Metafilter Kid-Friendly Meet-up! [more inside]
I'm here in Baltimore on business and will be here until August 26th. Would love to meet local MetaFilter people. I'm staying close to the Inner Harbor but do not want to have the meetup there because this really isn't my favorite part of town. I'll be busy during the weekdays but my one weekend and weekday evenings are wide open. I don't have a car but am not averse to cabbing it. So let me know what you think. I'd love to meet all of you. Talk to you soon!
I live in Nanjing and remember reading that there is a MeFi group here. I'd love to meet new people here, esp. from MeFi. Is there is anyone living in Nanjing (or anywhere nearby) that would like to meet up?
Calling RTP MeFites! I'm passing through Raleigh in the first week of September and I'm free during the day on September 4th. Is anyone interested in meeting up for lunch/coffee/cake?

OrcaJam is a "GameJam" along the lines of the Global Game Jam, or TIGJams, or other game-development Jams you might have heard of. If you haven't heard of them, no worries! It's really quite simple. [more inside]
I'm in Boston again from Aug. 10th - 21st and would love to meet some MeFites at a pub for food and drinks. How about Saturday, August 14th? [more inside]

Surely I won't be the only MeFite at the 25th anniversary of Les Miserables (MeFi post here). Shall we meet in a pub before the 7pm concert? I'm from Cambridge, so suggestions welcome.
Still hungover from Wednesday? Come on out for MORE KARAOKE! MORE BEER! MORE YELLING! [more inside]
Adelaide meetup, 2-3pm at the Grace Emily Hotel.
Let's go eat Somali food at Solay Bistro! Sept. 15 at 7:30. Optional ice cream to follow. Note: the address on the map is not right, but it's close to the intersection of 161 and Cleveland Ave, apparently. [more inside]
Has there even been a meetup in Hamburg? Why not? Let's try it and see if we get a critical mass.
