REMINDER. NYC meetup tonight. Sundou Dumpling restaurant at 7:00. If you're not interested in food, then we'll see you at 8:30 at Revival. I hope to see you there!

I'll probably get to Revival before 8, if anyone is going earlier.

I'll try to stake out the upstairs back room.

Ok, thanks, CL!

Sorry I didn't see your comment about Mars 2112, btw, Smart Dalek. I've never been, but want to go. Perhaps I can make it back for another meetup later this summer!

If I'm there, I'll probably hit Revival earlier rather than later.

Between this, and what's happening in Glasgow and London, are we all establishing some sort of record for simultaneous (and transatlantic) meetups?

I'll be there for the dumplings, but am too pooped for Revival--maybe next time.

Sounds cool, Eideteker. I'll see if I can hop a train for Sundou!

See you at Revival!

Beware: last time I went to Revival there were a hell of a lot of dorks there.

I will hopefully be there promptly at 7 for dumplings. Mmmmm, dumplings.

I may run a little late, depending on the trains. It looks like it'll be raining, so I don't think I'll ride my motorcycle in. So I'm at the mercy of NJ Transit.

i'll be there for dumplings, but can't make it to revival.

Must be. We should've set up some sort of iChat AV ultramegasimulcastversation thing?

Though by the looks of it, the Glasgow one might be me and you having a pint in the CCA bar...

No one should have to compare themselves to NY MeFi in terms of fabulousness. That way lies madness.

If it starts to rain again, I swear I'm going to get up on a clock tower or something.
posted by CunningLinguist at 11:05 AM on June 9, 2006


Ack, looks like I won't make it after all, I've been pulled into an impromptu opening-night showing of Pixar's Cars instead. I have the worst luck with meetup scheduling lately...>_<

Forgot to mention that it's at the Zeigfeld...I wouldn't bail on you guys for your average theater!

screw you cyrus!

(kidding. have fun at Cars.)
posted by Stynxno at 11:25 AM on June 9, 2006


Guess I should pay more attention to the gray. Dumplings are grand. I just have to not eat myself sick.

Who's bringing the cocktail weenies?

I mean, there are going to be cocktail weenies, right?
posted by Meatbomb at 2:40 PM on June 9, 2006


no cocktail weenies, but how about some squid jerky?
posted by amberglow at 3:13 PM on June 9, 2006


Couldn't you guys have waited 'til next weekend? I'll be in the city then, but as of now, well...
posted by item at 3:25 PM on June 9, 2006


Dammit. I missed mytrain due to bad directions. I'm still waiting for the next one. I'll stop by Sundou if I can make it by 8:30 since not everyone can make Revival. Sorry!
posted by Eideteker at 4:33 PM on June 9, 2006


Train just left. Should be @ Penn St. by 8. I don't think I'll make it to Sundou by 8:30. =( I'll probably head straight to Revival. Hope someone's checking MeTa!
posted by Eideteker at 4:38 PM on June 9, 2006


Eide, I am sorry I am missing you. I will be there next time. Hope you have fun tonight!

I made it!
posted by Eideteker at 6:14 PM on June 9, 2006


i just left them, going strong...lots of shoutouts, some new people, and a lurker who is now going to join...
posted by amberglow at 8:27 PM on June 9, 2006


Well, I thought about going late, but if amberglow is gone, there's no point.

Whoo! We got a noob to sign up! Matt, you can either paypal me my cut, or pay me in sock puppets.

I made it!

I watched Eideteker post this while I watched jonmc photograph him doing it!

That is SO Meta.

Seriously, as usual, nice to see you all- and those who didn't show were missed (dame! gaspode!)

Super fun to meet/catch up with you all! You made my visit to NY feel like a homecoming. It's awesome to be where everybody knows your name...

Expect pics around 2008.
posted by Eideteker at 9:47 PM on June 9, 2006


Jonmc called me a motherfucker. Bingo was right.
posted by hermitosis at 10:19 PM on June 9, 2006


no, jonmc called ME a motherfucker. And there are pictures to prove it!

Well, that was fun. It makes me sad to learn I missed the dumplings, but then, I hadn't known I'd be attending.

Besides, who needs dumplings when you have cereal bars?

The answer, of course, is "everybody."

Nobody ever calls me a motherfucker up here in Massachusetts...

languagehat, why don't you come visit and let us have a ColdChef-style reception for you?

Thank you both very much. Photos, like scars, mean it really happened.
posted by econous at 1:20 PM on June 10, 2006


Dang, hellbient, that poor guy on the tracks. Looks like he was perilously close to the third rail.

You'll notice that there are no cocktail weenies in any of the pics. The organisers of this meeting are a bunch of motherfuckers, and I won't stand for it.
posted by Meatbomb at 2:46 PM on June 10, 2006


yeah sticky, they turned off the third rail. The train was one car into the station. Now that I think of it the M trains are shortened (one or two cars shorter than usual), so he probably wouldn't have been hit regardless.
The MTA didn't seem to care much. I was standing near an MTA employee who was on the walkie-talkie when passengers were hoisting him from the tracks. He was explaining the situation to someone. You'd think they'd be trained to keep passengers off the tracks, and inform the victim that help is on the way, stay put, etc...

My pics start here and go forward from there. As per usual, if I made any mistakes, or uploaded a pic of someone who wants no pics online, what have you, let me know. E-mail's in the profile.
