Have you seen the numerous posts on the blue and the green praising roleplaying games and want to give them a try? Or are you an experienced gamer looking for a group? If so, I am looking for 1-2 players to join my Pathfinder campaign. Our emphasis is on roleplaying over combat though there is certainly some of that too. No experience in Pathfinder or other RPGs necessary. Campaign blurb & logistics beneath the fold [more inside]

Hello lovely Mefites of Tokyo! I will be visiting your amazing city for the first time and I would love to meet you. I will be staying in a hotel in the Ueno neighborhood, but I will happily go to anywhere you suggest. I'm hoping to see some unique Tokyo nightlife. I was thinking the night of August 13th would be best. I land on the 12th and I fear I may be a bit jet lagged that day.
Or is it catsup? I got some really great homemade ketchup a few years ago and thought it would make a pretty swell meetup opportunity, a la the marmalade meetup or the dilly bean meetup. [more inside]

Anyone going to SAA in Cleveland this year? I don't know the landscape of restaurants/bars/etc. there, but it would be fun to hang out with other MeFites either local to Cleveland or attending the conference. Sometime Thursday-Friday-Saturday 8/20-22 would work for me.

Citizens! I have a sudden and incontrovertibly ingenious plan, inspired by a Jonathan Gold review on KCRW of the Tumanyan Khinkali Factory, describing the khinkali as a "near peak soup dumpling experience." Given that this is in Glendale, and thus in vague proximity (2ish miles) to MeFite favorite GameHaus Cafe (previously and previouslier)...well, you can imagine my excitement! [more inside]
Details added: Tryon Park, then lunch somewhere in Sellwood.My plan is to slowly amble through the nature center and the trees at a leisurely place. More ambitious hikers can charge ahead! Memail me if you need my number. (You're welcome to just join us at the restaurant, too.) [more inside]
For those who want a weeknight option instead of/in addition to all the weekend meetups we've been having lately.
