Drunk Education - There’s No Ethical Consumption Under Capitalism

We all know that there’s no such thing as ethical consumption under capitalism, but what does that mean for the rest of our lives? This Drunk Ed show will ask questions like: What are the most cost-efficient crimes? How do you choose between all of your many garbage habits? And is it ethically acceptable for vegetarians to (literally) eat the rich? Talks by Kelli Korducki, John Leavitt (Mefi’s own The Whelk), Anna Merlan, and Eve Peyser. Tickets and information here!

I'm bad with planning meetups but we should have one.

It's finally fall, so why not celebrate with a meetup!? I was thinking McKenna's pub on west 14th would be good. Thursday the 16th at 6pm. I was also thinking about making a biweekly Saturday meetup if anyone's interested. Suggestions for a venue for that are welcome too.

Meetup at Mission Dolores on June 5th

Hey, I'm coming to Brooklyn on the weekend of June 5th to beat around and be a tourist for a bit. Anyone want to get drinks/dinner in the area? I heard the 4th Avenue Pub was good, but I don't know the area, so I'm open to other venues, and any time between Friday afternoon and Saturday night is fine by me. EDIT: Let's go to Mission Dolores! If people would prefer a different time, I'm definitely open to changing that until like a week before I come down.

Phire's coming to NYC! Let's have a meetup!

Long-time MeFi user Phire is gonna be in New York City from May 28th to June 1st! We should obviously get together at some point while she's around (and I'll make a pilgrimage up if at all possible). Quoth her: "The only firm commitment we have is the game on Sunday afternoon, so maybe just propose something for that weekend and see what times work for people?"
