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]
As in, I only barely remembered to post. George, Dragon, and quizzes. Who's in!?
I ordered a bunch of mefi mugs for various Sydney mefites. And it's the end of the year. So let's all meet up at the Erko and drink beer out of our giant blue mugs. Also Pogo Fuzzybutt is in town! Mugless mefites very welcome.
Now that my Tuesday night course has come to an end, I'm looking forward to exercising my brain again. Trivia at the G&D shall recommence!
I would like to see y'all this week. Let's win -- or lose hilariously -- at trivia! [more inside]
In honor of it being a Tuesday, and there being reasons both great and small for the consumption of pints and distraction of the mind... let's TRIVIA!
Is it time for a pre-holiday-season pub meetup? (Hint: It is!) [more inside]
Let the Child of Destiny ride again! Or somesuch. George & Dragon, Fremont, Pub Trivia
The weekly thing -- I think at some point we should probably automate posting these :) -- at the George & Dragon.
Under_petticoat_rule and I will be in Glasgow briefly. We're Americans but don't hold that against us. Come have a pint with us at a pub that comes highly recommended by many sources including the Good Pub Guide (with special awards for beer selection and budget pricing). Tell us all the things we should be seeing in Glasgow!
ETA: Since the weather is slated to be gorgeous we will try to get a table outdoors. I will likely be easy to spot as I have bright red and yellow hair and a loud American accent. I may try to make a sign. We will be in York and would love to meet up with other MeFites as we take a break from visiting everything FPP-worthy in town! We've chosen The Maltings Free House because it's recommended in the Good Pub Guide. If we should view this as the Not So Good Pub Guide please let us know now. It's very close to the train station and offers charming food such as "burnt bread with various fillings" as well as an array of beers, whiskeys and fruit wines (and I'm assuming some non-alcoholic beverages as well).
Helen and I are, uncharacteristically, in town this week. Who among you hoopy froods would like to come and answer 40 hard questions as best we can?
I almost misspelled "trivia" in the title, which indicates we need to do this more often.
I like trivia, and so do you. Let's make the weekly game at G&D happen again.
Who's up for a trivia run next Tuesday? Lurkers? Anybody? Usual suspects?
George met a Dragon. Rather than fight, they opened a pub together and had awesome trivia.
Our bizarre hybrid of "knowing things" and "the other thing" seems to be a real winner. Or at least places a solid second on a regular basis. Let's go unseat the champions!
Hey, crew. Happy new year! Wanna get trivial?
Whatever the weather, how about pub quiz *next* week?
Anyone up for the usual trivia at the George and Dragon?
Let's all work off our various holiday meals with onion rings and a sense of intellectual achievement.
In theory a trivia attendee had news. Plus, there are fun questions. Anyone in?
The pub quiz at the George and Dragon in Fremont. I hear there may be good news from a local. [more inside]
Pub quiz! Tomorrow! We know we can, do we think we should?
The usual thing at the usual place. [more inside]
At the George and Dragon, this Tuesday. Lurkers, we're -- mm -- not so bad, mostly.
There is no Lowcountry Cabal. Maybe we can change that? [more inside]
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]
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)
Pub quiz night at the George and Dragon, Fremont. [more inside]
Time again for Tuesday trivia at the George & Dragon. Regular participants and those that haven't done it before all welcome. Onion rings will be shared. Drinks will be drunk. Questions will be answered.
Same bat-time, same bat-channel? We tied for third (out of four) last week... let's see if we can't do a bit better this time!
More of the same after last week's victory
Pub quiz at the George and Dragon, low key, reasonably funny, onion rings. Regulars? Lurkers? Comeback tours? All welcome.
Slightly more lead time this week - ChrisR and I enjoyed last week but it'd be nice to have a more diverse team so we don't lose our street cred. [more inside]
Come to the pub! Have a drink. [more inside]
Anyone else up for trivia quiz night? Returning champions? Anyone? [more inside]
It's meetup number V. It's May! [more inside]
Well, last week was weird, but it paid off in Lego at least, if not in victory. I'll be there again this week. Who's in?
Hey, after last week off, this week's on. G&D, the usual?
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.
Pub quiz night at the George and Dragon.
Last month was a bit tricky, but we did it! Let's do it again! [more inside]
Pub quiz night at the George and Dragon. Sometimes we win. Sometimes we think we're really funny. Come if you haven't been, come if you're a lurker, come if you're a regular.
I'll be in Toronto next Saturday (March 18) - mandolin conspiracy will be playing mandolin with a group at the The Cloak & Dagger Irish Pub that night! [more inside]
The George and Dragon has a guest trivia presenter this week, apparently. Let's see if we can repeat our 38-point showing from last week.
Pub quiz night tonight? Short notice, drippy weather, but it's been weeeeeeks. Two, that's plural. [more inside]
