My son and I are going to see a Gamelan Ensemble performance by Gamelan Laras Tentrem and the Tufts University Gamelan Ensemble: tomorrow, Saturday 12/8, 7pm*, at the Granoff Music Center, Fisher Performance Room, 20 Talbot St, Somerville. We'll meet at 6:45 in front of the Fisher Performance Room (see my comment below*) inside the Granoff Music Building at Tufts U, 20 Talbot Ave in Somerville. (I think it may one floor below the entrance) If we're hungry and it's not too late, we'll go and eat something afterwards. [more inside]

[7/9, UPDATES INSIDE- seeking reschedule or alternate hike leader] You guessed it - the next chapter in MeFites Go Hiking (Mass. Edition) has just been published. I have one free weekend morning in Boston in July, and there is no group with whom I would rather frolic in the woods than you all. [more inside]

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!
Hey folks! I am planning on going to the Middlesex Fells this Sunday at 2:30 to hike the Rock Circuit Trail, summarized elsewhere thusly: "3.7 miles – Average hiking time: 4.5 hours.

Sunday, February 5th Sunday, February 12th Sunday, February 19th!The last meetup went really well and the venue is excellent. That said, this is flexible, so if people EDIT: or Nature Herself would strongly prefer a different time, date, or venue, I'm willing to change it. [more inside]

The first meetup went well, so let's meet again at Knight Moves on Saturday the 26th at 6:00! [more inside]
Would anyone like to meet at Knight Moves in Brookline to play board games? It bills itself as New England's only board game cafe and has a wide selection of games to play. I'm fairly sure it allows customers to bring their own games as well. There's a cover charge of $10 Thursday through Sunday and $5 Monday through Wednesday. What times and dates would work for people? UPDATE: Come to Knight Moves near Coolidge Corner on August 29th at 6:00 PM to play some board games! [more inside]
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.
The New Bedford Whaling Museum hosts the 19th annual Moby-Dick Readathon the weekend of January 2-4. I think it's a great way to start the New Year and I'll be there most of the weekend. Would love some MeFite company for breakfast/coffee/reading/event-going. [more inside]

Drink some beer (or other beverage of your choice) in Harvard Square. [more inside]
Just moved back to Northampton and I would love to meet some people I didn't attend kindergarten with! I can see that the last meetup in this area was pretty epic--would anyone be up for something more casual, like trivia at Popcorn Noir on 3/5 or 3/12? Or board games at the Roost on those nights? Edit: Popcorn Noir it is, as it is the special International Women's Day edition and we can't miss that!
It's 2014. Time to finally plan the meetup I've been thinking about for years. I live in North Attleboro, about 30 minutes north of Providence, and am willing to host something in my neck of the woods or the general vicinity. At a restaurant? A bar? A library? An abandoned factory down by the river? I'm definitely looking for feedback, suggestions, creative co-hosts... [more inside]

If you have beginner-to-mid-level games to bring (something not totally impossible to teach to new players), feel free to bring them. [more inside]
It's high time we had another Western Massachusetts meetup, so we're having one on July 27 in Northampton. This will be a multistage meetup: early arrivers will gather for lunch at La Veracruzana, then the gang will head to Hinge for meetin', chattin', drinkin', and possibly gamin' through the lazy afternoon hours and into the evening, when eventually the die hards will proceed to Herrell's for ice cream. It's been five years since the last Western Massachusetts meetup, at which awesome people attended and great times were had, and I hope a lot of you can make it! [more inside]
