I've come to realize I'm not the only aimless Brooklyn mefite when it comes to Halloween this year. Perhaps there are more! This is a hybrid meetup, but that's not an option in the drop-down. Movie + drinks! And candy! [more inside]
Heading back to the Soda Bar. Mainly because I want to go back to the book store across the street. I am willing to listen to suggestions on this one for location. Date is fixed, Wednesday is Secret Science Club.
Brooklyn meetup - who's in? Zombie Hut, Thursday October 10th. Yes? Yes!
We narrowed it down to a date! An actual date! And an actual place! And my mind is still reeling that it's a German beer garden (who'd a thunk it?) just down the street from where I used to live back in the 90s! Here's the place. Looking forward to meeting new friends in my old neighborhood that will no doubt seem like a new neighborhood. Prost!

Hey, our (capnsue, josher71, petulant beard) band, Blackwolf Beach is playing at Grand Victory in Brooklyn at 8pm on the 21st of September.

We will answer any and all questions relating to Charm City. We have a facebook and a bandcamp if you would like to check us out to see what you are getting into or make sure you don't hate us. https://facebook.com/BWBband http://blackwolfbeach.bandcamp.com It's a show with Cut Up Cult.

We're in Brooklyn this week. Manhattan people get to travel. Outside if it's nice, inside of it's not. [more inside]
It looks like these have not been happening regularly, so I am going to try to start organizing them. Because I'm organizing, I am pulling you all to the wastelands of the north this week. On the other hand, it's next to three train lines (L, JM, G), so it should not be too hard to get to. [more inside]

Last time there was a meetup at Zombie Hut I did not order the frozen drink with a shot of unidentified alcohol in the straw, and I have been forever regretful. Help me right this situation? [more inside]
Hi all! North Brooklyn time! Manhattanites will be TOLERATED. Staten Islanders, Queensians, and The Bronxish shall be roundly celebrated for adding a touch of exoticism. This week's meetup shall be at Harefield Road (right off the Graham stop on the L, or a short walk from the Lorimer/Metropolitan G stop), which has a lovely little backyard-ish area and lots of great beers. Hope to see you there! (some of you may take umbrage at the extra-H variant spelling of "Williamsburg", but to that I say that the Extra H Is For hSavings)
I was supposed to schedule this weeks, wasn't I? I was hoping to get people to come north, but given the last minute status of this post, I'm saying Soda Bar again. See you there. [more inside]

It's nice (and steamy) outside and it's time to head back to the 4th Ave Pub and eat all the free popcorn your drunk butt can carry down the stairs to the backyard.
Posting before I forget! By popular demand, gonna do some research and have a group outing to Fast and Fresh. There's an outdoor patio in the back. And when we're done eating we can head to Bijans across the street for beverages.
Was thinking about proposing a meetup at Supercollider and just saw that Bar Scrawl (previously featured on the blue) did a neat writeup of it. Like Bill Roundy, I got the black hole to drink and it was tasty! They have a happy hour ('til 7, I think) and a cool little rooftop space. (If this date ain't no good, let me know and I will change it--any day next week is cool.)
Commonwealth has $4 beers till 7 o'clock. The sun goes down at 8. There is free popcorn and a "cute backdoor area as well" (Yelp).
We're sorry, New York. We love you but we just can't live with you. [more inside]
As of now, Thursday is looking to be rainy (c'mon May, get it together). How about the newish The Hollow Nickel on Atlantic? Close to all your favorite public transit lines. Update: Now that this is moved up a week, who knows what the weather will be. We can update it to an outdoor place if it looks like it'll be nice.
I keep saying that I'm going to organize a meetup at Sycamore so let's do it! (On a Thursday, not a Wednesday, so I can actually be there.) Come enjoy the greenery of Ditmas Park while drinking tasty beer! [more inside]
