Mexico city Mefites, please check in to let us know if you're ok after the earthquake.
So right now it seems like Hurricane Patricia might be one of the worst hurricanes ever. Is anyone on MeFi in its wake? Is there anything people can do to help?
I could swear there was a post within the last couple years pointing to a story about an obscure deceased Mexican folk artist who showed a unique creative and whimsical flavor which he injected into the folk art that his village specialized in. Which, along with his non traditional sexual orientation earned some negative attention during his lifetime, but is now attracting admirers posthumously. Am I dreaming, or was this on the blue? I've wasted a couple hours looking for it with no success.
I'll be traveling in Oaxaca from the 29th to the 4th. Are there any northern-hemisphere MeFites up for a Mexican-style meetup? [more inside]
Mexico City Meetup! January 4th at 7pm scarabic and I will be at the (unfortunately named) Yuppie's Sports Bar, 5208-2267, Génova 34 - it's in the Zona Rosa, near the intersection with Hamburgo. We'll be enjoying cervezas and the Rose Bowl broadcast. Ven a tomar un trago con nos ostros!
