NYC Meetup on Saturday? I'll be in town for one night only, and would love to be able to meet the famous NYC MeFites before I head back across the pond.

I'll be staying near JFK airport, so something near A/E/J/Z/LIRR would be best, but really whatever y'all think is best. When do these things usually get started?

I can't get the Add Meetup thing to work on this stupid hotel connection, so can someone else do it?

Maybe the Dakota Roadhouse? Some might recall ending up there after a previous get together, and fun being had. Roomy, cheap, A train on the block.

Sorry, grouse. Here's me saying a friendly NYC hi to you now since I'll be shaking my groove thing at the same show yeti and youcancallmeal will be at.

It's almost like there'll be a simultaneous mini LCD Soundsystem Mefi meetup going on...except none of us are planning to meet each other there.

Yay! It'd be great to meet up with you folks. The Dakota sounds good to me too. Shall we say 8 p.m.?

Actually I forgot that I have a party in Brooklyn that I was invited to weeks ago. But I'm coming from Hoboken, so I could stop by for an hour or so on my way there.

Looks like I will be around, too. Now, even if this is a sparse meetup let's everyone report on the viability of this spot for future events. There's a whole upstairs floor that may be available for a larger group. 8 pm, yo.

Not going to make it. Been at the office all day, returning in the morning, home is Hoboken, and I didn't realize the meetup spot was in Brooklyn, which means a much longer trip for me. Next time.

It was a great meetup (and it was in Manhattan, bingo, sorry you couldn't make it). Pictures probably after I get back to the UK. It was fun meeting y'all.
