Mefi's 10th - The African Oddysey
May 6, 2009 1:42 AM   RSS feed for this thread Subscribe

July 18th - Africa celebrates MetaFilter's 10th.

There are no other MetaFilter members nearby, sorry.

You think that's gonna stop us? This is Africa, man. Let it not be said the great anniversary passed silently here.

Proposed herewith:

Date: July 18
Time: 10pm - Sunrise
Venue: Havana's Bar - off Westlands Mall in Westlands, Nairobi

I'm seeking no funds for this party, drinks are on me for any MeFite who makes it there. I'm only hoping to procure a MeFi tee-shirt in good time for the party so you'll know which crazy to look for in the place. Otherwise its gonna be me preaching MeFi to my friends and random strangers. Don't let that happen.

I would love to come drink with you, akot. Unfortunately not this time. Seems like I will be spending the 10th weekend with a pack of wolves in Yellowstone.
If I ever get a chance to do some fieldwork in Mpala, we should totally throw the biggest Mefi meetup Nairobi has ever seen.

You're on, bro. You always have a place to crash here, too.

Ah, I'm going to be in West Turkana digging up fossils. I'll be in Nairobi in mid June and early August if you want to postpone and/or celebrate early!

ChuraChura: You should definitely meet up with allkindsoftiime. He is one of the most awesome mefites out there.

allkindsoftime, god forbid you do get stuck there alone, but then we'll have to find some way for you to phone it in to the NYC meetup.

We are practically neighbours. I am in Durban, South Africa, where there is, too, a dearth of Mefites, alas.

Actually, I was born in Nairobi many years ago. It is such a pity that I won't be able to make this one.

Definitely can't make it over there this summer (though the next one...), but a beer will be raised and tilted toward your general direction in Burkina Faso for MeFi and the party I'll be missing!

Note to any late-comers, we've had to switch up our plans due to travel issues. We're now pushing to Tuesday the 21st, me-mail me for info if you want in.
