Bundle up, it's gonna be cold! April 1, 2007 7:37 AM   Subscribe

???, NYC! It's almost time to ring in the Boar! Since nobody's suggested a meetup for the Chinese New Year, I figured we could find someplace to hang on February 5th. Naturally, any venue with Sonny & Cher on the jukebox is a must, as would be any old Disney memorabilia. Who's in?

I really must protest. Well, not really, but I will. It's Political Correctness Gone Mad* I tell you! Year of the Pig if you please, and no prettying up. Next you'll be telling me the Snake is a Little Dragon.

Well, as a former New Yorker who wandered into Chinatown many years ago on Chinese New Year and narrowly escaped the intense barrage of firecrackers with eardrums barely intact, I can only suggest that you folks stay well north of Canal street. Or do it in Brooklyn.

And, do it sometime before the year 2019.

Plus, all the cool kids are bigging up Septuagesima this year anyway.

Ummm, I don't get it.

Didn't the Chinese new year already happen?

Or is this, like, an April Fools thing?

April Fools, I guess?

that, or, like me, they keep missing the metafilter NYC meetups for some lame reason, and would like to remedy that.

in a slightly confused manner.
