It has been almost 20 years since the first post on MeFi, so what an opportune time to get together here in the Triangle of North Carolina! Maybe we can even make this a regional thing and lure some MeFites down from the mountains, off the Outer Banks, and "y'all too, Fort Bragg!" Let's start a discussion in this thread about where, when, and what we want to do in general terms before we nail down the details. [more inside]
In response to this post, maybe we can actually pull-off an Indy meetup for MeFi’s birthday? [more inside]
I’ll be in Chicago next week and I’d love to meet everyone! Details inside. [more inside]
Come to my house for the MeFi20 meetup. We'll have snacks, some sort of dinner-ish food, some sort of drinks, lawn games, indoor games, wifi, and who knows what else. If you're not normally a "meetup person" but would like to say hello and then go somewhere and twiddle with your phone while drinking a nice beverage, we can accommodate. Family and friends? Sure! Kids, are very welcome. [more inside]
Philly peeps! The February meetup was great! Let's do it again, shall we? [more inside]
The goal last time was to have another meeting in less than a year from the previous one, so we have a little over 2 months to get organized ;) I propose Benelux on Wellington, May 24 or 25. [more inside]
Now that summer is nearly upon us, I wanted to propose another get-together in the spirit of 2018's lovely ice cream and burrito hang. [more inside]

The weather's getting a bit nicer. Want to hang out and grab a drink?
Brooklyn never left, of course. I did, but I'm coming back this fall and in the meantime, I want to go ahead and get the weekly meetup rolling at a ... slightly less than weekly pace. So how about this Saturday, the 16th, we all come on down to commonwealth; a "pretty decent bar" in the south slope, at 4pm or so? [more inside]

I know a few MeFites (besides myself) who'll be on the upcoming 2019 JoCo Cruise. Shall we arrange a meetup on the high seas? I expect we can coordinate via Twit-ARR if we can't figure out a time/place before hand.
Have reserved a spot at the Jason George at 3:00 (in the back room that's on the right hand side just after you walk past the bar). Come one, come all if you can make it! Have chatted with a few folks and there a few of us who expect to be there well into the evening. Will update gathering status here throughout the afternoon/evening for those who might be able to make it later.
Under_petticoat_rule and I are continuing our travels around the world - and our effort to have a MeFi Meetup in just about every city we visit. Come on out, have a beer or other beverage of your choice, tell us what we shouldn't miss in Melbourne and give us first hand accounts of Democracy Sausages! (And wish me a happy birthday!)
MUST POSTPONE due to illness/conflicts. New venue! This month we are meeting at Babajan, the restaurant formerly owned by MetaFilter's own jan murray, who still works there most Fridays. The menu includes vegan, vegetarian, and meat options, and the bar serves a rotating list of delightful stuff for beer drinkers. [more inside]
Hey folks, I will be in town briefly on my way back to Sweden. Let us meet up on Thursday evening, March 14, at Hidden Harbor as suggested by several of you lovely folks. [more inside]

We're confirmed for Sunday 2/10 @ 2pm, Frankford Hall. Soooo it's been since April of last year since any meetup happened, and that was just me and dances_with_sneetches who was visiting from Puerto Rico. It's been since like 2016 since we had a board game meetup. Yikes! [more inside]
I will be in Barcelona for the very first time on Sunday. I arrive late January 13th and leave on Thursday, January 17th. Anyone want to meet up with me? I am hanging with a friend but am flexible about meeting up one evening or at lunch time.
The time for happy birthday dim sum is here - this year at Bamboo Garden, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
[confirmed!] Would people be up for a central London midweek meetup sometime in January? [more inside]
I'll be visiting family in my hometown of the Twin Cities for the holidays and would love an opportunity to sneak away for a meetup with some of the large contingent of MSP Mefites. Is anyone free and looking for an excuse to go out for a drink or meal post-Christmas / pre-New Years?
There will be a meetup in Helsinki, Finland, on Dec. 19th in Tereenpeli in Kamppi. It starts at seven-thirty in the evening.
OK, we'll meet in Chinatown, at Little Sheep Hotpot [more inside]
Hello friends! I’m in town for an interview, and am sticking around through next week. I’d love to meet up with folks (anyone know of a good bar trivia night?) UPDATE: We’re on for Riddle Me That on Tuesday evening!
In 1792, the underground Café Sten Sture in Gamla Stan was a prison. According to its website, "It’s an amazing experience to sit in our caves from 1400 century. We have many cozy and exciting Caves." It was fun in November, when two additional MeFites made an appearance. It will also be fun in January! [more inside]
Hylaea and have I moved to Ottawa and don’t know many people. We would love to hang out with however many of you can make it. [more inside]

Saturday, November 17 early evening (6pm) at the Storm Crow on Commercial for board games!
The challenge is to make the worst piece of art in the allotted time. Worst art pieces will be rewarded with unconstructive criticism, guffaws and prizes. Plus bragging rights. Hosted by Converge Denver and Denver Public Library. All supplies provided. [more inside]
Well, all, we have not had a meetup in a while now, or even a couple of whiles. Patio season is behind us, but Storm Crow Manor is descending upon us. Seems like as good a rationale as any to assemble and have a free-ranging discussion of stuff. [more inside]
I'm going to be in Austin for a work conference, but would love to escape the schmoozing and meet some locals. Anybody up for getting together the evening of October 16? [more inside]
I'm on a roundabout drive from NYC to Minneapolis and will be stopping in Toronto from Friday 12th October til Sunday the 14th. I've never been to Toronto and have never been to a MetaFi meetup, so this could be a big weekend for me. Any Torontonian Mefites free for dinner or drinks Saturday (and/or possibly Friday depending on what time I can get into town)? [more inside]
I'm hosting my first event for Democrats Abroad and could use any help and company. I'll be at Chapter One books from 6-8pm, helping people request ballots, register to vote and more. Let's turn the tide this November! [more inside]

Let the Child of Destiny ride again! Or somesuch. George & Dragon, Fremont, Pub Trivia
Since a few people expressed interest who couldn't make it last time, trivia is on again this Tuesday at Folly Brewpub. Trivia starts at 7pm, but I'm generally there from 6:30. Last time we had a resounding win, so we need to try to retain our crown. Very low stakes, only a round of beer, but always fun.
I want to go to Tamara Shopsin's reading with John Hodgman at Books Are Magic if work doesn't wear me out too much. If you'd like to come too, that'd be cool! We could also get dinner and/or drinks at one of many nearby drinking and dining establishments (like Leyenda, perhaps?). [more inside]
Are there any MeFites in Gainesville, FL? [more inside]
We're visiting family there next month and I'd love to meet some Canadian MeFites in the flesh. We're staying near the Emily Carr statue and residence, so a cultural outing would be swell. It looks like the only day we'll have free is 9/11. Is anybody available then?
XOXO is happening this week in Portland – we're going to meet up at Ex Novo Brewing on Thursday before the festival opens! [more inside]
Mr Kris10_b and I have been going to trivia at Folly Brewpub on College St, but there haven't been many people showing up. I was wondering if anyone woukd like to join us for the next trivia night on 11th September so we can have a few more team members, or possibly another team. The prize is just a round of beers, but they have a good range of questions and it's always a fun night.
