Impromptu NYC meetup. Wends 15th. August 12, 2007 4:54 PM   Subscribe

Impromptu NYC meetup. Wends the 15th. I'm in NYC for the week, and need a decent distraction. I'm in midtown...I'd like to hangout with some of the fine people of NYC. Somewhere with alcohol, quiet enough to talk, and not so crowed. I'm in midtown but can be anywhere on the island.

I would humbly recommend you follow hermitosis' protocol for choosing a location in order to save yourself an ensuing argument.

I won't be in Manhattan to join you guys, but have fun. Ginger Man, in midtown, has great beer selection and some decent space in the back for chilling with a group.

Not sure if I can make it, but I will do what I can.

I might be down for this or I might have a prior engagement at Barcade. Not sure yet.

I'd like to do my first meetup as well - if there are any under-21's I know of a tempting roofdeck?

Serendipitously, I have a nagging feeling I'll be needing a drink after work tomorrow.

As filmgeek hasn't responded yet on time & locale, it's getting too late for me to commit.

As an FYI, however, I was given a great bit of news which a few people were wondering about. When I make the next meetup, I'll shell out for a couple pitchers. ;)

Crap...

Ok, so filmgeek has a work meeting/dinner on wends and thurs that he can't get out of.

What he can do is change it to friday (this hopefully will also be easier to people.)

No matter what, I'm a ghost at 10pm (to catch a train home.)

So: New Plan.
Friday night. 7pm (and on).

GrammarMoses suggested:

Film Center Cafe
635 Ninth Ave., New York, NY 10036
nr. 45th St.
212-262-2525
http://filmcentercafe.com/

Being a 'filmgeek' - I think the Film Center Cafe is good (unless someone knows better, which is easy to believe because I'm from out of town.)

So, figure 7pm, Film Center Cafe. You'll know yours truly, because I'll have luggage with me.

Unfortunately, I cannot make it. I will be watching my boyfriend Zac Efron in High School Musical 2.

In case ThePinkSuperhero feels like jumping the gun.

Sorry can't make it =(. I was just corrected that a concert I'm attending isn't happening on Saturday as I thought previously, but is in fact happening on Friday.

Ok, so far NOBODY has said they're attending. (not via email or here.)

I'm going to my room and cry.

Seriously, if nobody posts/emails by 9am tomorrow, I'm going to cancel.

So... I'm guessing this is a no-go?
posted by GrammarMoses at 8:41 AM on August 17, 2007


yeah. No go. Next time i'm here....I'll try again. Likely i'll be planning a meetup when meatbomb comes to Philly.

You can all come watch High School Musical 2 with meeeeeeee!
