My puppy & I will be in San Diego for a few days this weekend/early next week to take care of my mom. My second order of business will be to overdose on Roberto's food, but I'm also going through withdrawal for a good San Diego margarita, though. Anybody up for joining me?
I know it is very short notice, but any NL dwellers interested in meeting in Amsterdam on the 10th, 11th, or 12th?
Portland meetup party is less than two weeks away, and I need to do a head count. If you're attending the 8th anniversary party, please RSVP on this page. Thanks!
LA Meetup photos: Only four turned out for me (I do have a fair number of drunkish blurred shots of my feet). I hear that there were more, and even voice recordings. If you've got the missing photos, please post inside!
I've submitted this to Projects since I think the issue has nation-wide interest, but I also wanted to shout out to the Baltimore & D.C. area mefites whose backyard this is happening in and invite you all to come along. If you haven't been following the Silver Spring photo debacle covered by the Washington Post, DCist, DC Metblogs (disclosure: that's me) and others, you might not be aware of our planned gathering on July 4th. We've scheduled it at Noon so you still have time to leave and head off to whatever BBQs and fireworks watching you have planned for the evening and the location is just two blocks from the Silver Spring metro.
NYC Meetup: I'm coming to town to see my old (and new) mefite friends. Let's get together on Friday the 13th (of July), 7pm at d.b.a.
Reminder: London meet up on Saturday 30 June, South Bank & Hammersmith. 11.30am under the clock at Waterloo (look for a gold balloon) for those doing BookCrossing, and 4.30-5 onwards at the Dove, Hammersmith, for those doing alcohol. Full details on the other thread.
You remember that thing about London meetups happening far too frequently? Well, it's happening again. Short-notice meetup, tonight (Thursday 28th), Cittie of Yorke, 7pm onwards.
Can we unlock this Portland Meetup thread?
Time for another Grand Rapids meetup? wobh will be making an appearance here next week, and I thought that it would be a great time for a meetup. I suggest Thursday, July 5, 8pm, at the Pickwick on Cherry Street. If that is not a good time, Friday would also work, or Monday (July 2) in a pinch. Other nominations for locations are also welcome.
I'd like to see the meetup list on the front page in the blue, just to get bigger turnouts (and a better sense of community). I imagine there's quite a few people who don't regularly visit Metatalk, but would like to go the meetups.
Is it possible for admins or orginal posters to edit at the top of a meetup post? Like in this recent meetup thread. It's confusing to read through the whole thing and come out with no idea of whether time, date and place have been settled.
Is it time for a Boston-itself-Boston meetup soon? I flew in thismorning, got my apt settled & now don't have work until the 26th. I'm right by Symphony, & can get anywhere the T goes, but I have neither bike nor car so I can't make much past that. I'm also (sadly, believe me) under 21, so I fear a pub crawl (as much as I'd love it) is out of the question. Also, would anyone living here be up for not-too-serious-slightly-more-than-but-basically-touch rugby on a semiregular basis?
In response to a post, I've successfully compelled my wife to celebrate Frida's 100th birthday tonight at Frida's on State St here in Madison, Wisconsin. No planning or thought has gone into making this a real Mefi meetup. Our reservations are for 7pm. If you're in the area, drop by and say hi. I hear margaritas are cheap tonight, or something (I'm not a drinker).
DENVER (and Boulder) Metafilter MeFites will once again be gathering to drink libations and act smart. We could really use some help.
LOS ANGELES MEET UP June 29, 8:30pm, Boardwalk 11. RSVP inside.
MARLBORO, MA meetup Bump. Because seriously, are we* doing Lazer Tag first? I'm moving some stuff into my new apartment that day an I need to know if I should budget time for
Since this thread wasn't really a reminder per se, with permission , here is a reminder , Tokyo Mefites! Tonight's the night!
Meetups planned with over 30 days advance might need a little more time in the grey.
Toronto meetup, anyone?
Is there an RSS feed that is solely the Mefi meetup calendar listed in the MeTa sidebar? If not, Matt, is that something you might consider, or would it be too much of a pain in the ass? Separately, just because I'm curious (this ISN'T meant as a challenge): I understand posting limits on Mefi and AskMefi, to prevent abuse. I'm curious as to why Meta has one, though, and four days apart. Has it been abused in the past, or is there the potential for abuse?
London meet-ups, eh? There sure are a lot of them about at the moment, but on the off-chance that any of you are not already suffering from 'meet-up fatigue', there's yet another one planned for Monday, June 11. It's a result of this AskMe thread, and is your chance to welcome lackutrol to these shores. The venue will be the excellent Jerusalem Tavern, from around 5.30-6.00 onwards.
Late-notice London meetup: Tuesday 5 June, 4pm onwards, The Salisbury, St Martin's Lane
Can the meetup listings in the sidebar be kept up for a few days afterwards so we can more easily find the pictures which were taken? Or should there be a separate category for this?
PHOENIX! Sometime in the evening, between June 11th and 14th. Probably that Monday or Tuesday, because I'd like to meet mullacc and I'm pretty sure he's leaving town mid-week. What say you, kings of sun, lovers of ale, revelers without abandon?
Heading to the Bonnaroo Music Festival in a couple of weeks for the first time - any other MeFites planning on attending? (Anti-hippie comments to a minimum, please)
Inspired by this AskMe thread -- who's going to be in Washington DC for the American Library Association conference or for other reasons June 21-26? Who's interested in a meetup?
How does a Providence/Southeastern New England meetup on Sunday, June 10th sound?
I'll be in Chicago at the end of July (27-29) for the BlogHer conferences. Anyone interested in trying to arrange a meetup there? I'll be in the Navy Pier area. Suggestions for possible meetup locations near there?
Santa Cruz, Calif. Meetup: June 22? [more inside]
NOLA meet-up? [more inside]
Attention: Los Angles(L.A.) I'm flying in and staying around the airport and working near the Staples center for a few days. I'd like to organize a meet up and meet some American mefites. If some one would be so kind as to pick a place and time I would love to show up and tell you stories about Canada or something.
Calgary meet-up this weekend? I know it's very short notice, but unexpectedly I'll be stuck in Calgary by myself this weekend. Is anybody interested in a meet-up on Saturday 19th? I'm staying somewhere pretty central, but I don't have a car.
NYC meetup? I'll be in New York between 5 and 12 June, so let's have a meetup. Best days for me are 5, 6 and 7th. I'm staying at the Gershwin Hotel on E.27th Street. One of those dates will be a theatre night, but I don't know yet which one.
How about a Paris meetup? Say, some time between May 21 and June 2 so I can attend?
I noticed that the meetup mentioned in this thread has made the 'gatherings' sidebar. (I'm assuming that the meetup will take place this year, and not in 2009, as suggested.) In the thread, there weren't many details regarding a place or a time. Has any of this been decided yet? Not to make like Mother Superior and jump the gun, but if this thing is really happening, I want to buy my plane tix pretty soon.
Seattle meet up concept within.
Eurofilter. Next year I think there should be the mega UK Metameetup of all time for Eurovision. You up for it?
I feel like I might get a bunch of chirping crickets in response, but is there any interest in an Upstate NY meetup at some point in the near future? I'm not sure where the highest concentration of members is up here, but I'm located somewhat centrally in Syracuse... can we put something together?
I AM HAVING AN ANN ARBOR/YPSI MEETUP ON MONDAY. I will be at Arbor Brewing Co. on Monday, as it's one of my last opportunities to do so. I will be drunk and bearded. Any of y'all are welcome and encouraged to join me.
Hey hey hey there, Seoul brothers an' sisters! I'm swinging through your fair, river-cleaved burg for the two weeks beginning 22 May - my wonderful wife has a show (and a talk) at Insa Art Space, and I'm coming to help her mount it, see some old friends, and generally be her number-one fan. This is time enough, me thinks, to arrange quite the soju-fueled shindig. What say? (Stavros, I'm looking at you.)
Chicago Looptopia Meetup?
Hey Boston/North Shore: Stynxno and I are coming to town. We'd like to meetup with you on Sunday, May 27th, in beautiful Salem, MA.
NYC Meetup on Saturday? I'll be in town for one night only, and would love to be able to meet the famous NYC MeFites before I head back across the pond.
It's probably about time to start planning the 10th anniversary for metafilter. It goes without saying that there should be a meet-up involved somehow. But where should it be?
Northeast New England Meetup was a great success. There were lots of cameras and a delicious cake our wonderful hostess provided.
Many a drunken NYC mefite has gazed into his/her half-empty glass and wished aloud that DaShiv would come to NYC and take photos of us. Well, I say life is short, and we're not getting younger. Let's take up a collection and get him out here for a meetup. I'll start with a pledge of $50 towards his airfare and any other necessary expenses.
