Hi. You may see me there. Looks like a cool, unpretentious place. What time?

Eh.. it's totally pretentious on weekends, safe for sane folk on most weekdays though. Not meant to be a dig, Mr. Glow.

I mebbe there.

Would this be a good place for me to invite NYC Mefites to a book party on Thursday? My wife's novel just came out:

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 7:00PM: Join buzzed-about debut novelist Marcy Dermansky and friends to celebrate the publication of TWINS (William Morrow, September 2005), a fabulously black comedy about twin sisters, Chloe and Sue, and their attempts to make it to eighteen in wealthy suburbia. Twins and friends who come dressed alike are eligible to win twin-themed prizes, and absolutely everyone is invited to join the fun! At Bluestockings, 172 Allen Street (between Stanton and Rivington), on the Lower East Side. For more, please visit

I'll try to make it on Wednesday--Max Fish is fun.

It's a really nice place (or at least it was 8 years ago!)

Only JonMC will recognize me. Otherwise, I will pretend I'm someone else.

I don't suppose anyone will still be around at 10pm? That's about the earliest I can get there, but I'll come if folks'll still be there.

I'll be there around 7ish.

cool, unpretentious place

Max Fish? LOL. Though pretty much any bar qualifies as cool at 6. And they serve Red Stripe (a holdover from before Red Stripe became trendy). I'll probably wander over.

7ish for me too (i'm hoping not 8ish)

In spite of my recent health difficulties, I shall still make an appearance.
posted by jonmc at 6:38 PM on September 19, 2005

If long-time lurkers are welcome, I'll be there to represent (but probably from the far end of the bar).

It looks like I won't be there. Boo.
posted by safetyfork at 10:52 AM on September 20, 2005

I will try to be there. Driving into the city is always a pain in the ass, but to drink and hang with the merry nyc mefi crew I will make the trip.

I've got skool.

don't lurk, Oddly--we only bite if you want.
posted by amberglow at 6:17 PM on September 20, 2005

Oddly, I too post rarely. Went to my first meetup a couple months ago. It was all good.
posted by gaspode at 7:42 PM on September 20, 2005

So much for a fun Wednesday. I have to work this evening. Hope you had a good time in NYC, mgl.

Just got tix to the Yanks game tonight, so I won't be there.
posted by mkultra at 12:23 PM on September 21, 2005

posted by gaspode at 12:34 PM on September 21, 2005

And I just got another out of town assignment, so I have to miss both tonight and Sunday. Phooey.

it was fun
posted by muckster at 9:41 PM on September 21, 2005

Very fun for my first time out. Drinking and discussing is always intresting.

Would recommend again A++++++++++

I just hope the pics came out ok -- otherwise we broke several city ordinances in vain!

that racist clown is forever in my nightmares...
posted by hellbient at 12:57 PM on September 22, 2005

i love that clown! : >
posted by amberglow at 5:53 PM on September 22, 2005

speaking of clowns (even tho I hate them) this is the bike I want to get...

mmmm, racist dunk-tank clown.
posted by dorian at 6:31 PM on September 22, 2005

please tell me someone got a picture of that clown.

dorian - you couldn't handle that thing - it'd be all "hey dorian, why do you ride a girls' bike? watch out! you can't ride this thing, white boy. Where'd you learn to ride, from Stephen Hawking!? Why don't you steer under that dump truck and put us both out of our misery?! You're useless!"
...and there's nothing you could do about it.
