Hi everyone! I was thinking it was high time we did another meetup, and I was thinking maybe we could do it at this new lovely bar that just opened in my neighborhood. I'm talking about Tick Tock, which opened maybe two weeks ago. It's got lots of space, a good selection, and is right next to Steve's Hot Dogs.
So, I've arrived in Madison (thanks for all the helpful answers to my Ask!) and I was wondering if anyone wanted to have a meet-up over a beer or two. I don't have a time or place in mind but somewhere near the university would be most convienient for me. Date-wise I was thinking sometime in the next couple weeks. Update: Thursday, 18 September, 4:30, at The Mason (416 S Park Street). I'll update next Thursday with how you can recognize me.
Hi! We'll be meeting up (some of us for the first time in Portland!) at Great Lost Bear on Saturday, 10/4, at 4 pm. We'll be bringing our one-year-old daughter, and hope you'll bring your young kids as well! (Of course you're welcome to bring your old kids but they probably don't want to be seen with the likes of us.) Food, beer, whatever...it's going to be superb.
Come join us at Adults' Night Out at the Arizona Science Center, doors open 5:30-9 pm Friday October 3. Entrance is free. We will do dinner beforehand at 6:15 at the nearby Rose and Crown, and head over to the ASC around 7:30. [more inside]

Fellow MKEers, let's get together and rejoice! With summer winding down, it seems like an ideal time to get together and do something fun! EDIT: We'll be meeting at Nessun Dorma (2778 N Weil St.) on September 5th at 7pm. See you there! [more inside]
I've been really out of the MetaFilter loop and would like to fall back in again. There must be some MeFites still here in Philly and I would love to hang out with them. My wife and I have a rambunctious almost 3 year old and it would be nice to bring him along too, so ideally a place that is kid-friendly would be great. [more inside]
Update: First weekly Tacoma meetup will be Wednesday, September 3, at 5:30pm at The Mix. [more inside]
I'm not saying you should wear your straw boater after Labor Day, but I am saying that summer doesn't actually end until autumn starts, so we've still got a few weeks to squeeze in a summer gaming meetup. [more inside]
I'm going to try and get to Maine on the last day of my New England Vacation trip with my grandson. Any meetup takers? I suggesting next Thursday or Friday the 21st or 22nd of August. Ideas? I've updated it to the Great Lost Bear on Friday. Changes are still possible, but I'll be on the road after tomorrow.
Let's get together for biscuits, as discussed in the last Triangle area meetup thread! NOTE REGARDING LOCATION: this is just to let IRL let me post with confirmed date and time - REAL address will be provided via mefimail to people in the 'Attending' list on this page. [more inside]

I kind of fell off the grid, so I don't know if this meetup ever happened. If so, how'd it go? Anyone want to try it now, or do it again if it did work out? [more inside]
BBQ party at my Dad's house this Saturday! Drop by anytime between 3pm and dusk. [more inside]
So, last meetup we talked about doing another one this summer, before I leave town. So, Friday Aug 15 at 5 pm in the Ann Arbor Beer Garden. There's food right next door at Mark's Carts so we might be over there, and if it rains, check this space for alternate plans. [more inside]

My grandson and I will be traveling to the New England / Maine area August 17-22. I'd like to meet up with as many Mefites as we can during the week. This is kind of our last time together before he leaves to join the Army. I put Cambridge, MA in the location field,; this is not to rule out any surrounding communities or states. Built in limitation of the location algorithm, I am told, on good authority :)
Seattle MeFites: Let's hang out at Shorty's to play pinball, eat

Is anyone else (besides me) going to Ars Electronica, 4-8 September in Linz, Austria? (Or anyone living in the area for a meetup?)

Me and my beloved wife are going to be arriving in Seattle, Washington very soon before heading to Alaska on a cruise. We would love to meet the Seattle MeFi contingent on Sunday, August 10th. You all know what I like. We'll be staying by the airport, but we're willing to venture out.
So I'm in Vancouver this long weekend and find myself unexpectedly free of familial obligations on Monday, Aug 4th. I'd love to grab a drink with some people if you're around and free - let's meet at 3 PM at the Storm Crow Tavern!
You know the drill. [more inside]
I'm new to the city and have a fantastic view of the La Ronde from the Longueuil side (near the metro station). Anyone interested in getting together to watch the fireworks tonight?
Hi San Francisco Metafilter. I'm going to be in your city on city on Friday, September 5. Want to hang out? Where would be a good place?
I'm visiting SF again 4th to 20th August and it would be cool to meet some MeFites. Drinks at Virgil's Sea Room at 3pm on 16th August (Saturday). Come later in the day if you want since I'm presuming we will be there a while. We may pop out for food at some point - I'll keep the thread updated.
It's Geeks Who Drink trivia time once again, back at Joe Sent Me, Cambridge, Wednesday at 7:30. Minus Horace Rumpole, who will be flying back from Philly that evening. Let's hope there are no questions about Samuel Johnson in this week's quiz.
As discussed at last night's meetup, there is a lot of interest for a board game meetup! Let's meet at Roll Play Cafe at Yonge and Edwards at 2 PM on Sunday, Aug 10th. Bring your best games...or at least your game face!

Sensationnel, la quinze ans de MetaFilter! Rejoignez-nous pour La Course de Garcons & Filles de Cafe!
"On July 14th 2014 the French will take over Daley Plaza, in a celebration organized by volunteers belonging to many organizations under the umbrella of the French Consulate. Le clou du spectacle, the show stopper? It will be la Course de Garçons &; Filles de Café, bien sûr! This is when waiters or wannabe waiters compete in a 200 meters sprint that involves running as fast as you can while balancing a tray full of (plastic) glasses — without spilling a drop of grand cru." [more inside]
There's no Just for Laughs this year in Chicago, so some local comics took it upon themselves to roll their own festival. Let's hangout at the Hideout and see some great comics! [more inside]

I'd like to take a wander through Chelsea Market, how about you? (Suggestions for alternate bar locations nearby are welcome, in case the Market is some Eataly-like mosh-pit and we need to retreat.)
In honor of the 15th birthday of Metafilter, we'll be having a meetup at Science Club, the same place we had our meetup for the tenth. Please really do consider coming, even if you've never been to a meetup before. Let's make this one count! [more inside]
Metafilter is 15! We should celebrate according to tradition for Australian 15 year olds, that is, hang out in a park and get drunk! [EDIT: Venue changed to the Courthouse Hotel, Newtown, due to overenthusiastic weather deities]. [more inside]
It's summer. We've gone to Ivar's Salmon House each of the last two summers. They have a deck. We're doing it again, on Sunday, July 13 at 3pm. According to the cheerful Ivar's receptionist I just spoke to, 3pm is a pretty safe bet for a table on the deck outside. Reservations have been made, see you Sunday.
Let's go kayaking down to see the downtown skyscrapers and construction from the river. [more inside]
I'll be in Copenhagen July 25-28 and would love to meet up for beer/lunch/dinner/drinks/whatever with any MeFites in the area. Flexible schedule. Looks like there hasn't been a Copenhagen meetup in a while. Anyone game?
