I'm new to Melbourne and would like to meet people & get to know this place. Let's meet up!
Hey, NOLA-proximate mefites! Me and my wife are headed your way soon on the drive home to Portland, and we'd love to get together on Thursday Aug. 27th in New Orleans. Let's do Bellocq at 8! [more inside]
The epic story of an anti-Semitic riot in 1903 told in the form of a Jewish folk tale. A young female mystic and her community of Hasids experience the event through the lens of Yiddish legends and the daily details of Jewish life in turn-of-the-century Eastern Europe. [more inside]
Spur of the moment invite: Baseball writer Dan Epstein will be doing a reading at my beloved Manitoba's Bar on Sunday June 29th at 7pm. Handsome Dick himself will be participating as well. And there's free hot dogs. Me and some of my co-workers will be there. It'd be cool to have some mefites there as well.
If you are bored and not sure what to do on New Year's Eve here is what some of us are doing! [more inside]
RMH Janurary DINNER: We continue to have a great time cooking dinner for people at the Hyde Park Ronald McDonald House (5444 South Drexel Avenue, Chicago, IL) so we're doing it again on 1/11/14 starting around 4:30 and finishing around 8:30 with dinner served at 6. It's like a potluck that we all make together at their kitchen, and also feed families of sick kids. [more inside]
I'm coming home - or close enough, and I want to meetup in New Orleans! [more inside]
I'm going to be blarging up New York from the 4th to the 6th of November, and I was wondering if any mefites would want to meet up? It's been a while since I lived in the city, so any suggestions for a venue would be awesome. (I tend to go by the name blarg on #bunnies. I should probably go by that name on metafilter, too!)
Me, my wife and six year old daughter, my cousin and her family will be climbing Mt. Monadnock in NH on Weds the 5th of October. [more inside]
Syracuse gets the privilege of hosting the first night of Karaoke Underground's first East Coast tour on Wednesday, May 11 at 8:00 pm. Boston, Brooklyn, and Philly shows to follow. [more inside]
My fiance and I are coming to NYC from the 2nd to 5th of May and I was wondering if anyone is around for a meetup? [more inside]
Byron Bay Blues Fest - there's got to be metafites going. I'm going alone on the Tuesday 26 April, but would love to hook up earlier, share accommodation, a few drinks, that sort of thing.
My new show, a stage adaptation of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, is getting some very nice reviews. Our opening night was mostly filled with a huge group from the Science Fiction Writers of America, which made me think of (Mefi's own) jscalzi, which made me think of posting this to IRL. So come on down to 3LD. We run through December 10.
Do you want a free copy of this book, inspired by a Metafilter post? (more) Can you meet me somewhere in mid to lower Manhattan at 5 this afternoon? I'm bringing a case to give away. If you can decide where we can all meet, I'll show up at 5 and give away as much of the case of books as there's interest for. I'm driving or working for most of the day, but I'll check back at 3 or 4 this afternoon and if anyone is interested, you're welcome to a free book. [more inside]
