Hi folks, you know the drill! City Bakery, 11 am, bring yer knittin' or crochet or whatever. FYI - there may also be a Saturday meetup starting on a different schedule, but at the same venue (someone has reached out to me about wanting to do that), so don't fret if you start seeing two meetups.
Linda and I have spoken about doing something on a weekend, like getting together some MeFites to see the film Lady Bird. Problem is, I can't get film programs for more than a week ahead except for art film houses, which aren't showing that at the moment. So, any suggestions for a weekend, earlier in the day outing, movie or otherwise this month? Ideas welcomed! (Consider checking out Biocafé Tellus for Sunday at 17:00 films to see if any of those are appealing.)
Oh hey - the Mr. and I will be in Rome this month from 26 March to 4 April. Anyone want to meetup for aperitivo? Or suggest someplace to eat for Easter supper? Thanks!
I moved here in January. I don't know anyone beyond my wife. I thought I'd see if there was anyone here that would be interested in a meet up. I live in the Montrose area, so inside the loop would be best. Drinks somewhere would be great, but something more unique would be cool too.
This coming weekend (Saturday, March 17th) we will be having a family-friendly meetup at the zoo! Everyone is welcome; we thought this would be a nice opportunity for people with kids and people without kids to hang out especially because the zoo is FREE! [more inside]
So I'm going to be in San Francisco for GDC, but I'm also staying for a few days afterwards, and would love to meet any local MeFites. Let's meet up in Union Square at noon on the 25th May. I will be wearing a bright green scarf.
I'm coming to Arkansas, and I'm ready to rock a little (har) - I'll be in Little Rock from the afternoon of March 18, leaving on March 22. Who's around and about and wants to grab a bite? [more inside]
As everybody who wrote postcards to voters until their hands cramped last month, the Illinois Primary is March 20th. Let's get together and discuss any questions we might have about the candidates and where our loyalties lie. Also BRUNCH! [more inside]
Join me, zerolives aka Phil, on Friday, March 9th at 5:30pm at Polo Grounds (Corner of 3rd and King) for beverages, pub food, and that witty mefi banter. [more inside]
Hey, San Diego, who's up for dinner on Saturday, March 3 at Village Kitchen? (yelp, San Diego Reader review). I'm taking a long weekend vacation to visit friends in La Jolla, and would love to manage a mefi meetup too.
Dinner in February was so fun that we are meeting up again. In March we will gather at Teatern in Ringen centrum near Skanstull subway station. Look for people wearing glasses, not wearing glasses, and a MetaFilter sign. If you get there early, feel free to grab a table for 6 or 8. If you can't be there exactly at 7 pm, no worries; drop by when you can. [more inside]
My journey has gotten me finally to the Pacific Northwest and I am slowly making my way up the coast. I should be in Portland on the 17th and I’m staying for a record breaking 2 weeks! I have long wanted to visit this hotbed of Metafilter, can we all get together for drinks or food or, I don’t know, it’s your city, you tell me where and when!
Babbers! Luvvers! I have repatriated to my motherland of Devon, and brought chrismear with me. I know we're a bit more far-flung down here, but would anyone be up for a meetup? [more inside]
I'm in León for the next few months! If one (or more) of y'all are, too, come have tea at my place! Or we can go to a place. There's options!
Hello San Francisco I will be visiting your beautiful city starting Friday 1/19 and wanna join any marchers on Saturday! Then we could have drinks? [more inside]
It's been awhile since one of our semi-regular meetups, and it would be great to catch up. [more inside]
Hey, crew. Happy new year! Wanna get trivial?
under_petticoat_rule and I will be in Bangkok for a good chunk of February. We'd love to have a meetup. We will be in Pratunam, near the mall. (Which mall? ALL OF THEM, apparently.) However, we're willing to travel elsewhere in order to meet up and see people! Anyone interested?
Dim sum time is here again - this year, ferret branca and I want to meet up at Buddha Bodai on Mulberry Street (yelp page), how about you? [more inside]
Hello Korea! slyrabbit and myself are in Seoul for nondenominationalmas and wondered whether the on-trend youth of MeFi would be interested in an upmeet. [more inside]
I got carried away last January making eggnog and now I have a ton of aged eggnog, but I forgot to invite people to drink it until now, so: Jan 6, come drink some eggnog with me! [more inside]
Let's stay warm while playing games at The Loft on Sunday. [more inside]
In years past I've hosted a meetup at my house during the week between Christmas and New Years. I'm proposing to do it again on December 30th, and this is the post to gauge interest. [more inside]
Hey Michiganders! By now I hope you're recovered from holiday madness and ready to kick back with your fellow mitten-wearing MeFites. We're meeting at Cultivate Coffee in Ypsilanti on Sun Jan. 21 from 4-8PM. Hopefully that will accommodate both early and latecomers. It's a nice bright shop with coffee, tea, beer and snacks. So stoked! Bring your pals! [more inside]
gingerbeer and I will be in New Orleans from this Friday (12/8) through Tuesday. We are going to a wedding on Friday, but the weekend is open. We're staying at the Old No. 77 hotel. We like cocktails and good food and mefites. Let us attempt to combine them!
Känna känna! I'm moving to Stockholm on January 20th. How about we put together a fika or something the last week of January? I'll be a bit south of the city but happy to travel for a meet up. Any interest?
The wonderful starlybri was kind enough to organize a recent NYC meet up, and some of us got to talking about how they used to happen more frequently in the city. So overhauser has kindly secured a spot at Lucky's in the East Village for us to gather on Saturday, December 9. The time will be 2-6pm. There will be cheap drinks, and we'd like to do this pot luck style with food! [more inside]
Apparently the weirdest, goofiest, and funnest Marvel movie yet. [more inside]
In theory a trivia attendee had news. Plus, there are fun questions. Anyone in?
It's finally fall, so why not celebrate with a meetup!? I was thinking McKenna's pub on west 14th would be good. Thursday the 16th at 6pm. I was also thinking about making a biweekly Saturday meetup if anyone's interested. Suggestions for a venue for that are welcome too.
Drinks, food and art. I will be in Richmond for First Friday and want to explore the heck out of it on foot. Lemaire at the Jefferson Hotel has fancy happy hour in the bar from 4 to 7 pm. Appetizers 3 for $20, wine and drink specials. The Lantern Parade starts at 7 pm. There are light sculptures around the Arts District. If there's later night blues music that would be even more swell. Come wander with me. [more inside]
The usual thing at the usual place. [more inside]
There is no Lowcountry Cabal. Maybe we can change that? [more inside]
I'm giving a public lecture on NW Coast Archaeology at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) on October 3rd at 7.45 (This link says 7.00 but there is an AGM first, I think). It's free and open to the public. If you come, be sure to say hi. I'm also in Portland the next day (October 4) and if anyone was interested in meeting for an after-work beer that would be fun - but I'm staying near Gladstone/Jennings Lodge so don't know how feasible that is, I don't know Portland at all.
I've got a group of three or maybe four people who will be carrying on the MDC tradition at the George on Tuesday. JOIN US. [more inside]
I am in SF until 15th September and would love to see some friendly faces. Let's meet for casual drinks Tuesday 12th September, 8pm at The Sycamore in the Mission. It'a on Mission between 17th & 18th.
That time of week draws near again, and I've missed trivial facts. I'm bringing two people with me, so we only need three more to round out the crew. Unless we want to divide and conquer, of course! (Moved the date to Sept 5, which was my original intent)
Hey Toronto crew, I miss you all! How's a lazy afternoon weekend meetup sound? I'm thinking starting at noon on Sunday September 17th. [more inside]
I'm not married to this event, but it does sound fun! This happens at the Windup Space once a month. I haven't played many board games but I know it's a popular thing to do around MeFi. I haven't seen any Baltimore meetups since I've been here, so figured why not! [more inside]
Hey everybody, I really want to go to this! Based on my friends' pictures, the bar has a bunch of props and it just sounds like a treat. Anybody else up for grabbing a drink or two there? (Non-drinkers interested in drinking non-alcoholic stuffs are welcome as well, of course). [more inside]
To all my Northern New England MeFites out there -- let's get together for a hike in the Whites before the cold! We've picked a moderate trail with a great view pay-off. If there's interest, we could also hit up a coffee shop, pub, microbrewery, etc. after the hike. [more inside]
I just can’t even with the news. So that means just one thing: ICE CREAM [more inside]
New Location! Hei La Moon Dim Sum! 11:00, Saturday, September 16. All the dim sum you can eat, as long as Bondcliff doesn't eat it first! [more inside]
Is anyone planning to drive from Atlanta into the eclipse's zone of totality on the 21st? Wanna make a MeFi road trip of it? [more inside]
Anybody interested in seeing Jaws on the big screen at the UPCA? They will begin with a 'beach party', then a Q&A with 2 shark experts. Tickets are $10 online, $15 at the door. If you've never been to the UPCA, it is a beautifully restored movie palace (previously on IRL). [more inside]
Update 2: Moved to 27th since eclipse weekend seemed like quite a conflict. If that's even worse I can move dates again! Let's eat dim sum. Hope to see you for some good eats. 11:30 at Bamboo Garden in Brooklyn's Sunset Park, a short walk from the N train.
Free podcast and storytelling meetup with Stream PDX this Friday! [more inside]
Hello Stockholm Mefites! (And surrounding area) I'll be in your lovely country for two weeks in late August/early September for my honeymoon, and I would love to meet up with people, buy a round, etc. [more inside]
