I'll be in Boston this weekend, visiting with my boyfriend, and we'd like to do Boda Borg, but with just the two of us, we're one short of the minimum team number (3-5 people per team). Is anyone interested and available? We could do Sunday or Monday, whichever works better. *Edit: Confirmed for Monday, May 31 at 1:30* [more inside]
I'll be back in DC the week of June 6 - who'd like to grab dinner or a drink? [more inside]
We haven't had a PDX-area meetup in a few months. I think we should remedy that. [more inside]

Barbeque, Bernie Williams, and metafilter: let's meet at the pedestrian plaza next to the Flatiron Building opposite Madison Square Park at 2PM, and then head to the Big Apple Barbecue Festival. I'm not able to make it to this anymore, but if anyone ends up going, have fun! [more inside]
Hey guys, I'm aware there just was a meetup last month, but was wondering if anyone wants another now in April? [more inside]
I know there are a bunch of expectant MeFi parents in the DC area (and maybe some recent parents?) so I thought it would be nice if we could have a meetup to keep ourselves sane(ish) and get a chance to check in with other intelligent, thoughtful adults going through the same thing. Everyone who wants to come is welcome, just know that the conversation might center around, like, babies and whatnot. I expect this to be this Saturday afternoon, April 16th. [more inside]
Hey! Saturday April 16! Me and likeatoaster and chaoticgood (and non-mefite Mr. Oticgood) are driving from Louisville to Cincinnati! Plans include Jungle Jim's in the late morning (then maybe grabbing food at Findlay) and then Rhinegeist at 3 (possibly followed by other breweries, Purple Bridge, or other downtown attractions). If you're a Cincinnatian who wants to join before 3, you can email me on Saturday (email's in profile) to see where we are at any given time!
After reading not_on_display's genius post about the Museum of Jurassic Technology, I realized it's been too long since I've been. Time for a meetup! [more inside]
So captivepredator and I were talking about a pre-meetup meetup on Saturday before the Writers with Drinks event. If you can't go to WwD or if you just want EVEN MORE Mefite time, come hang out with us at Borderlands. (It's just a few blocks away from the main meetup!) [more inside]
We have retreated like the gathering wave: next week let us fall on our foes and smother them in foamy facts.
Much like winter, this week Geeks Who Drink trivia is back at The Pub. Get out your coats and meet us at 8pm on Wednesday. Brr.

Killer Queen is a 5 player vs. 5 player arcade game. There is a machine at Logan Hardware at Fullerton/Western in Logan Square. Here is a video to get you acquainted with the game. [more inside]
Actually, if we survive this weekend, Wednesday at 8pm the weather should be downright tropical! Let's hope there are no frostbitten Taters at The Pub this week for Geeks Who Drink trivia!
Hello Charleston MeFites! I'm currently planning a trip to your lovely city from February 24-27 (leaving in the morning on the 27th), primarily with the goal of Eating All The Food, and I wondered if anyone wanted to have a meetup. Edit: I picked a time, date, and location (semi-arbitrarily, so I can be flexible); let me know if you can make it!
So, I think there's a handful of MeFi folks in Belgium. Would anyone be interested in a meet up around the end of February or the beginning of March? [more inside]

I'll be in Phoenix the week of February 8-12 - anyone want to meet up? [more inside]
The recent weather here in the Triangle has me wanting to get out of the house more and get to know some of my fellow local MeFites better. Would people be interested in going to a trivia night somewhere? I hear the Wednesday night Bull McCabes trivia is good, though I haven't been before. [more inside]
It's been a while! Let's chase away the winter blues with some drinks/dinner/conversation. [more inside]
I'll be appearing as a guest on So That Happened, a live talk show at ImprovBoston, Thursday, January 28th at 9:30pm. I have 10 free tickets I can offer to MeFites, so if you're a relatively solid yes, please send me (via MeMail or the email in my profile) an email address under which you can be registered for the guest list. I went and saw this show a couple months ago, and it was lots of fun, but it's always nice to have friendly faces in the crowd, so I hope you can join me.
Let's meet in front of the elephants in the lobby of the Museum of Natural History at 1 PM for some museum wandering, and plan on dinner at Good Stuff Eatery around 6! [more inside]

Hey Hoosiers! How about an afternoon of bowling with your fellow Mefites? I had in mind the Expo Bowl in Beech Grove- sort of a throwback kind of meetup. Anyone interested? Bowling, beer, and family-style fun! If we get enough folks we can get two lanes & really look pro :)
I'm a prodigal MeFite, in town for a bit of time, and wanted to see if any MeFites lived here these days. ***~~UPDATE~~*** MeFites do live here, so I'm confirming location and time of meetup. [more inside]

Any interest in a winter meetup in Seoul, South Korea? mefite research monkey and I will be there on a holiday vacation, from a little before Christmas to a little after New Year's Day, and would love to meet some of the Seoul mefites. (Updated: December 29, 6:00 pm) [more inside]
Joe's crappy broken speaker has sent us in search of a possible new Geeks Who Drink trivia venue. This week we're giving The Pub in Ball Square a shot. NOTE: trivia starts at 8:30pm!
(The description you are about to read is real. Only the questions have been changed to prevent an investigation.) This is the city... Houston, Texas. It was Wednesday, December 2nd. It was chilly in Houston. We were working the Geeks who Drink trivia detail. It was seven p.m. when we got to Sherlock's Baker Street Pub in Rice Village. The tables were full. Perhaps we should have arrived earlier, like 6:30 or so. [more inside]
The Blue Frog is shutting down in January and there's a pretty good chance the owners will have alienated the staff so much that everyone will throw in the towel before then, so this might be the last First Wednesday. If you've ever been, you'll want to join us this time. If you've never been, you must join us this time. [more inside]
Hi CO Mefites, turns out I'm in town from Phoenix for the next couple of days and at loose ends. Any interest in a meet-up either Monday, Nov. 23 or Tuesday, Nov. 24? To sweeten the pot, here's a list of things I can promise to converse with you upon if prompted: GOATS, firefighting, graduate school, what fantasy novel you should read next (a personal favorite), How Not To Know Anything About the Stock Market. [more inside]
Same as this time last year, I'll be in Wellington for the 2nd week of December and would be up for a few quiet-ish beers on the evening of Wednesday the 9th. [more inside]
