EJ in NYC September 10, 2007 1:43 PM   Subscribe

Yes, another NYC meetup.

I'm going to be in NYC from 18-28 October. On my last visit in June, the meetup was on the day I got there, so I was barely coherent from jetlag (whaddya mean, nobody noticed?!).

I know I'll be catching up with my NYC MeFi friends during the visit, but hope there'll also be a meetup too. I was thinking about Friday, October 26th. How does that sound?

I'll leave my Social Secretary, The Pink Superhero, to find a suitable venue but please chip in with suggestions.

Sounds fantastic to me. I'll definitely be down for whatever!

If I can make it I'll show up at whatever place TPS decrees. I'm well-trained.

Sounds rad. I will try as hard as I can to FINALLY make it to an nyc meetup, for once.

I'll do my best to be there, I regret missing the Coney Island meetup!

That would be wonderful, considering my gf's birthday is the preceding weekend and she'd hardly enjoy hearing I was riding down to NYC to meet a lovely girl from England instead.

I'd like to vote for a place where dancing is possible, since I owe EJ one.

A table will be fine Eid. I'll slip you a dollar or two.

English girls are dreamy.

Also acceptable as a substitute are girls from New Zealand.

You know how I'm always saying I might show up?

I really might show up this time. Really.

I just hope you can find one rated for my weight.

Is there any news on this shindig?
posted by Eideteker at 3:49 PM on September 21, 2007

There will be a shindig on October 26th, as requested by essexjan. More details to follow. Have patience, Eideteker.

Don't kill me. I'm going to Chicago that weekend.

If you came, the bar would probably end up closed when we got there. OOOOOOO burn!

Bad news From Yelp:

does anyone know if this sweet bar (bouche bar at 540 e 5th st) in the east village is still alive and kicking? i'm just worried bc every number i've tried to call has been disconnected / out of service...

So what's plan B?

Yes, the Bouche Bar does seem to be closed.

How about Revival? It's a 'known quantity', I know how to get there, and it's a big-ish venue, from what I recall, so it shouldn't be too crowded.

The back room at Art Bar is comfortable and nice. Then again, it would be on a Friday night. And their nachos are awesome.
posted by spec80 at 6:49 PM on October 9, 2007

Art Bar is cramped and too dark. I am not crazy about that establishment at all.

Revival would work very well for me.
posted by jason's_planet at 7:00 PM on October 9, 2007

That's what we get for allowing spec80 to comment in this thread! spec80 is a witch!!! she causes bars to close!!!

Ok, so Revival it is, then! Friday at 8 p.m.

For anyone who hasn't been to Revival, here's a map and the address.

Friday 26 October 8pm.

Will try to get there around 8; if I can't get out of work, I might not make it til 10. Hope folks will still be there (I know sometimes y'all crawl).
posted by Eideteker at 10:21 AM on October 10, 2007

Sometimes? Pretty much always, it seems. Those lost can call my GrandCentral number- 727.475.4373
