I had subscribed to my calendar via iCal and after a week decided to delete the calendar subscription by right clicking on the subscribed calendar name and clicking delete. However, I still get popups to add events to my calendar for meetup even after I deleted it.

I thought I'd resysnc my data from and overwrite my calendar data on my mac with the data from and the calendar data doesn't even appear in the preferences, though everything else seems to still be there.
