Boston Proper Weeknight Ice Cream

Date Change On Account of Predicted Weather! Now Thursday, July 19 at 6:30 PM! Apropos of the ice cream meetup suggestion, let's meet up for ice cream on Thursday, July 19 at 6:30 PM at the JP Licks on Boylston off of Mass Ave! If the mood strikes, we can head up Newbury Street and sample other ice cream on offer. This will be a weeknight event in Boston proper, counterpart to the Cambridge Weekend Ice Cream Crawl!

Blue Shirt Board Games

The weather has improved. Daylight Savings has pushed sunset to a later, less depressing hour. It's the perfect time to sit indoors and squint at each other. Let's play board games at the Blue Shirt Cafe at 2:00 on Sunday, April 30th. Bring any games you like. If you'd like to play a game you don't own, request it here. [more inside]

Board games at the Blue Shirt Cafe

The last time we met to play board games went well. Let's ring in the new year with a session at the Blue Shirt Cafe on Sunday, January 22nd, from 2:00 to whenever we want to leave. People can bring their own games of whatever genre and difficulty they like. If people would prefer to meet at a different time or date, I'm sure we can work something out. [more inside]

Board games at the Blue Shirt

It's been a while since we had a board game meetup in this area, so let's see whether there's interest in a new one. One of us could host it, or we could meet at a restaurant such as the Blue Shirt Cafe on Davis Square or a conveniently large Panera Bread like the one near Fenway Park. Based on past meetups, Knight Moves seems to have been a bust. A weekend, which would allow for the most play time, would probably be best. When and where sounds best to you all? EDIT:Let's meet at the Blue Shirt Cafe on Davis Square at 2:00 on Sunday, October 30th! Feel free to bring any game or games you'd like to play.

Cards at the Cambridge Public Library

The last card-game meetup went well, so let's have another one. Let's meet at the library next Sunday, May 1st, at 1:00. That time and venue are flexible: If people would prefer a different time or place, I'll change it.

Card games at the Cambridge Library

Does anyone in the Boston area want to meet up and play cards? I'm open to any games less complicated than Bridge and more interesting than War. I don't know any great venues for card-playing off the top of head, but I'm sure we can think of something. Even if you don't know any games yourself, you're welcome to come: For my part, I'll bring one of those big books of card games. EDIT: Let's meet at the Cambridge Public Library at 1:00 this Sunday, April 17th! If not enough people can make that time, date, or place, then all of those things are flexible.

MIT Mystery Hunt Recovery Brunch

Five years ago we had a celebratory/commiseration brunch to celebrate the end of the MIT Mystery Hunt on MLK Monday. I had fun meeting a bunch of MeFites, and I'd like to do it again now that I'm coming back on-site! Who's available, who are you representing, what are the good eateries for a brunch/lunch around MIT, and what do you have in the Coin Pool? (I claim 40 hours) [more inside]

From Beyond - Boston Area MegaGame

Based on the response to the recent MegaGames post on the Model -U.N.-Meets-Alien-Invasion game "Watch the Skies," I would be remiss if I did not point out that a similar MegaGame, "From Beyond" is playing in Cambridge, MA next week run by MegaGames United.

Rowdy Roddy Tater

The Taters are coming to kick ass at trivia and chew bubblegum, and we still have plenty of bubblegum, but that's OK because we're perfectly capable of doing two things at once. Geeks Who Drink trivia, Wednesday at Joe Sent Me.

When Taters last in the dooryard bloomed

True to their tuber roots (see what I did there?) spring is the time when all true Taters head inside to a dark room to answer trivia questions.

That last part may not be true of potatoes.

Dune at the Brattle

The Brattle Theater in Cambridge is playing a series of David Lynch movies from Monday, February 23rd to Thursday, March 5th. Anyone want to go see one of them? I'm interested in Dune and Blue Velvet, since those are playing on the weekend, but would be up for pretty much anything in the series. EDIT: We're going to see Dune on Friday the 27th. I'd rather go at 7:00, but if outvoted, 9:30 is also fine.

Really casual bike ride (or walk) + lunch

How about a pretty short, slow, sweet little bike ride on the Minuteman trail (or, a walk option instead)? And some lunch? OK, last chance, you 'Maybes!' If no one but cocoagirl and me are there at 10:30, and no one has switched to 'Attending,' then she and I may head elsewhere instead of to Spy Pond. But if anyone does switch to 'Attending,' then we'll see you at Spy Pond as planned. So, if you'll be there, switch over your response! [more inside]
