At Meetup HQ, we enjoy a little “healthy” competition. That’s how a casual lunch time wager evolved into a full fledged burrito eating competition, complete with referee.
“If I remember correctly,” QA Engineer Duncan recalled, “we were sitting around eating burritos one day, and everyone remarked on my consumption speed. Matt said he could eat as fast as me if he put his mind to it, so of course we had to put it to the test.”

Just inside the front doors of Meetup HQ, there’s a huge sign mounted to the wall. It reads “DIO,” which stands for “Do it ourselves.” It’s safe to say we’re a pretty hands on bunch.
It was only fitting that this year, we took our end-of-the-year celebration into our own hands. We transformed Meetup HQ into a velvet ensconced Las Vegas themed palace, brought our own silly Secret Santa gifts, and even hosted the very first annual Meetup 2012 Awards.
The offices reflect the community they support… The dog room has pictures of dogs on the wall and even a stuffed one to keep you company (he doesn’t bite).
A Halloween hero
Kyle organizes this fun Meetup Group in Pennsylvania, and he really saved the day when the Meetup team spotted his superhero costume.
Thanks, Meetup Man.
We’re working on the Meetup Man signal… um, just as soon as we have power again.
