Anyone who is underemployed, self-employed, playing hooky, or otherwise available is most welcome to meet me at Cafe Dejena for a twice-weekly co-working/socializing experience. See below for specific dates (as requested by cortex so as not to clutter up IRL). [more inside]
I haven't seen any meetups proposed for Philadelphia, so I'm wondering if there is an active enough contingent there to warrant putting one together. Philly MeFites, are you there?
Join me at Cafe Dejena from 10 am to 1 pm for the 2nd MeFi co-working meetup. Anyone who is underemployed, self-employed, playing hooky, or otherwise available is most welcome to come. There is free wifi; beverages and food are available for purchase. This place is close to the MacArthur Bart station. [more inside]

I'll be in Hong Kong doing research through the end of July, and I'd love to meet a few HK-based Mefites. Would folks be up for getting together--I'm thinking an inexpensive noodle shop for dinner, then/or an earlyish drink--sometime in the next few weeks? [more inside]
I'm interested in planning a meet up where people can chit chat and get to know each other. I've never been to a meet up so I don't really know how these things go. I would say we could go to a chill bar as long as they have non alcoholic drinks. If anyone has other ideas, those would be great too. Proposed time: early evening, in a week or so. Does anyone have preferences for time and day?
It continues! A meetup for London every month for 2017 (and hopefully beyond) [more inside]
CHANGE OF DATE! Last time we went was six (!) years ago and we had a lot of fun. Let's go back and do another hike in the Blue Hills, Greater Boston's favorite hills! [more inside]
Worldcon is in Helsinki this year (http://www.worldcon.fi) and I'm bringing resident 11 year old. Dates are 9-13 August though I think we are arriving on the 8th. Anyone else planning to be there? I've been to 2 Worldcons before and generally the problem I've found is I have no problem talking to new people but meeting up with people I already know can be difficult if we haven't made concrete plans as Worldcon is just so big. While I am all about the sitting and drinking, that probably won't be very 11 yo friendly so I am open to other suggestions - maybe a picnic or walk near the convention centre? Or an evening meal?
I'm visiting Montreal from 4-14 August and I'd love to meet some MeFis while I'm there if anyone is around and interested in meeting up. [more inside]

CANCELLED Swede from the West Coast looking to hang out with East Coast Mefites. [more inside]
Phire'll be in town next weekend, visiting from the famous country of Canada. So come meetup with her! Lots of bars and stuff are crowded and/or noisy on a Saturday, so grab a bottle of something delicious and come on over to my house, which even if it also becomes crowded and noisy, it'll be crowded and noisy with us! The plan is to mix the delicious things together to make deliciouser things. [more inside]
So last month, the calendar and my dark mood got the best of me and we didn't get together for activism talk and grousing and camaraderie -- with food and drink!) Let's fix that this month at the Long Room. [more inside]

It's meetup number V. It's May! [more inside]
I think we should have a meetup because it feels like it's been a while. I propose we meet at Mi Rancho in Silver Spring because it has an outside space, it's nearish the Metro, and restaurants with margaritas are good for drinkers and non-drinkers alike. [more inside]

Portland! LoRichTimes and I will be visiting from April 12 - April 15 and we would love to meet some locals and have a drink and chat about nothing! Come hang out at Breakside Pub at 7PM on Friday the 14th! [more inside]
Because (a) we haven't had a pub meetup in a while, along with (b) my own rather sequestered circumstances and (c) general consternation over the state of the nation, I could really use a restorative or three and some amiable palaver.
There are sad and terrible and amazing and mysterious things at the Undersea Museum, and its environs are lovely in spring and summer. Who's interested in a summer meetup, maybe followed by a park picnic or ? [more inside]
I'm blowing through San Francisco, and thought it might be nice to see people, but then totally failed to organise anything. So, since I have to eat dinner somewhere anyway, I'll be at the Thirsty Bear on Howard Street this evening at about 8 - if you are nearby and feel like dropping in to say hi, please do so! [more inside]

In past threads on the blue I've nicknamed my local, Putnam's Pub and Cooker, "Best Bar In The World". Wanna come have brunch and see what I'm talking about? It's reopening after a fire and needs a little extra love right now. [more inside]
Are any MeFites going to SXSW Interactive or Film in Austin Texas running March 10-15, 2017? [more inside]
Hi y'all, I'm going to be in Lakeview/Boystown in the afternoon. I'm totally flexible on time and place as long it's 4 pm or later. I just picked the Long Room because we've been there before and they have food. Can't wait to see the Chicago Cabal again!
Our last little meetup went well, so we might as well tempt fate and try it again. We knocked around a few ideas over beers last month, lets hash them out in the comments and see what happens. Next Update: We have a new plan! [more inside]
Edited: Given the problematic elements with Stand up to Racism (please see links in this thread), I'd like to find a better way to take a stand against structures of violence — one that is inclusive, looks out for survivors and creates a safe space for everybody. I've edited this post title, new copy is in brackets. I've moved the original post copy below here, kept for posterity. --- Original post: >Would anybody like to meet up for and/or after the March Against Racism National demonstration on March 18, 2017 in London? >This Stand Up to Racism Demo is for UN Anti-Racism Day. Other UK rallies are happening same day in Glasgow and Cardiff. [more inside]
Hi gang, Hope the holidays were good for all! Our last proposed meetup ending up falling through as it was difficult to pin down a night when everyone was around - thought I would attempt a 2nd kick at the can and see if we can do a winter gathering of sorts. How does Friday, Feb 10 sound? Just for the sake of lobbing a 1st suggestion into the pool. Hope the new year has been kind to everyone so far & looking forward to seeing everyone again!
(except that it's gonna be on the 3rd Saturday again maybe) Because of the holiday weekend and conflicting events, I'm suggesting we move this month's event to the Third Saturday. However, I'm open to other routes. NOTE: Please see the changed location and the fixed time; garlic has generously volunteered to host this month and I'm generously taking him up on that offer.
I'm popping down to NYC for a visit and propose drinks. [more inside]
I will devote one day this weekend to sewing pussyhats and thought I'd see if anyone wanted to join! I don't know how to knit or crochet, but yarn-folk are definitely welcome. [more inside]
January is here, so, ferret branca and I want to have dim sum with mefites again, at delicious Pacificana in Brooklyn. The more the merrier (and the smaller the final tab, usually), who's in? (previously) (moved to February so as not to coincide with Chinese New Year's Day) [more inside]
MAYBES: Text me for address if you don't have it and decide to come. Five ten two eighty two sixty one twenty. Hey folks, I plan to make a big pot of soup in hopes that local MeFites from the greater SF Bay Area will show up for a late lunch to converse and, if they like, also do a little sewing (I will be mending a few things) or a little crafting or a little colouring or simply hanging out. [more inside]

Join us for a board game night! [more inside]
Well, I'm just in town for a couple weeks and recalled the last time I was in town for a couple weeks and had a lovely time at a meetup (many years ago). So we're meeting at the Alibi Room, at 6pm on Thursday. I'll be outside at 6 wearing a purple scarf and if you come a little later we'll try to be downstairs. I'll post an update if not.
So Second Saturday is upon us sooner than I realized. And we're still getting together and chatting about our activism plans again like we did last month. However, there's a slight change in plans... [more inside]
