NYC Meetup? March 8, 2007 7:12 AM   Subscribe

Hey, New Yorkers. I'll be in town soon and noticed you haven't had a meetup in a little while. Anyone interested in something either next weekend (of the 17th) or the early part of the week after?

Are you only in town for a limited time? I was thinking maybe Saturday the 24th?

Yeah, I'm just in town for the first half of spring break to look at apartments/find a job. I won't be in town for good until May.

As long as you don't call me Betty.

Ah, OK. How about Saturday the 17th at 5:30 p.m. at our old haunt, Revival? We haven't been there in awhile; I kinda miss it.

I vote for that.

I'll be there with bells ties on, as usual.

Damn, I can't make that day. Have fun, y'all!

I think I will attempt to attend this as my first MeTa meetup. If y'all don't mind.

woo. ok.

My orbit will miss it by a day or two. Next time!

cool - I hope to be there

Uh, you know March 17 is St. Patrick's Day, right?
posted by poxuppit at 9:27 AM on March 8, 2007


That's maybe not a dealbreaker, but a big problem.
posted by hermitosis at 9:33 AM on March 8, 2007

Oh dear, I completely forgot. I imagine any bar is going to be a mob scene. Perhaps we should push back to Sunday, March 18th at 5:30 p.m.?

If you do it Sunday, I'll try to make it there from Jersey.

Great then. Sunday at my house?

posted by hermitosis at 9:49 AM on March 8, 2007

Sunday I can make. *crosses fingers*
posted by gaspode at 9:55 AM on March 8, 2007

My attendance is unlikely, but it's not for a lack of likey. Have fun all and al!

Whoo, drinks!
posted by NucleophilicAttack at 10:34 AM on March 8, 2007

Sunday works just as well for me.
posted by youcancallmeal at 10:41 AM on March 8, 2007

hermitosis' house it is. See you all there at 5:30.
posted by bingo at 10:57 AM on March 8, 2007

Sweet. Hermitosis' house is easier to get to for me! If it is going to be a Sunday, can we do it earlier?
posted by dame at 11:11 AM on March 8, 2007

I'm a big fan of afternoon drinking & also going to bed early. Totally punk rock!
posted by dame at 11:12 AM on March 8, 2007

Research shows that it's way easier to bring someone home from a party if your house IS the party.

But then I love a challenge. Revival on Sunday it is!
posted by hermitosis at 11:33 AM on March 8, 2007

OK, I've e-mailed Matt to change the sidebar date from Saturday to Sunday.

Revival on 15 St or Revival in Harlem? I can make it, either place.
posted by breezeway at 11:42 AM on March 8, 2007

Revival on 15th St.

Perfect. I'll be there.
posted by amro at 11:51 AM on March 8, 2007

Would y'all welcome a Canadian prairie boy who's visiting the Big Apple for the first time? I'm going to be in NY for a week, and my hotel is not far from there.

Of course!

I always enjoy talking to you fine folks so I'm in on this.
posted by kkokkodalk at 12:35 PM on March 8, 2007

Awesome! We'll have visitors! Plus, Revival's just a kick-ass place to be -- very cozy.
posted by NucleophilicAttack at 1:22 PM on March 8, 2007

Sunday's out for me. I have to go to my nephew's christening. Think of me as you drink.
posted by jonmc at 1:37 PM on March 8, 2007

I'd love to make this my first NYC meetup, but I'm afraid I'll probably still be at Lunacon.
posted by Xoder at 2:17 PM on March 8, 2007

Ooh. My first MeFi meetup!
posted by SampleSize at 2:20 PM on March 8, 2007

If I'm not knee deep in work, I would love to make it out there. I want to show off my ties, also, but it may be embarrassing with hermitosis doing the same.
posted by piratebowling at 2:47 PM on March 8, 2007

Pshaw. Embarassing for everyone else, who, lacking ties, will be as one stripped.

If decide to come, I'll leave my ties at home. After all, if you just wear yours, then we BOTH still get to show off.
posted by hermitosis at 6:13 AM on March 9, 2007

If by "ties" you mean "Marmaduke costume" then I certainly won't be left out among the embarrassed.
posted by breezeway at 7:50 AM on March 9, 2007

Hmnnn, Sunday is within reach, though I have a friend visiting from out of town.

onalark: Hey, I've got a great idea for what we should do Sunday.

haplessguest: Yeah, what?

onalark: We should totally go to this bar, Revival, and hang out with a bunch of my make-believe friends from the Internet.

haplessguest: Will there be hot wimmen and beer?

onalark: Hot wimmen!? Of course, tons and tons of hot make-believe Internet wimmen! And I'm pretty sure Revival is a bar.

haplessguest: i'm in.
posted by onalark at 2:27 PM on March 9, 2007

Dude. We are totally hot. And real. That is why NYC has all the meetups. Duh.
posted by dame at 8:54 PM on March 9, 2007

You don't have to tell him that, dame- he knows. He has met me, after all.

It's a strong possibility I may come, it really depends on what drugs I plan on taking that day...
posted by Derek at 10:21 PM on March 9, 2007

Take the drugs, then come! Or better yet, bring the drugs with you. :)
posted by youcancallmeal at 10:10 AM on March 10, 2007

I would have been able to come, had it not been for the weather of cruelty and woe, preventing me from leaving the sad gray universe of Pittsburgh.

posted by that girl at 12:20 PM on March 17, 2007

Good times had by all!
