dashiv in new york welcome party September 13, 2007 9:43 AM   Subscribe

I heard that DaShiv is coming to NYC from September 17 through the 27th. NYC already has his goodbye meetup on the 26th planned. When and where is the big HI DASHIV! meetup?

DaShiv requested Friday evening the 21st.

Revival has my vote. It has upstairs AND out back, no loud music, and if we start in the evening, we'll have it mainly to ourselves.

With a username like that, I'm not going to any party you're throwing!

Argh. I can't make it. What about other events during his visit?

Yeah, I'm in favor of Revival. I think I can make this one.

Revival's worked very well in the past and this isn't going to be the kind of meetup where a creative choice of venues would be appropriate.

Shall we say 7:00 PM?

+1 for Revival, but I'll be there regardless.

I think Revival will be too small for DaShiv---my vote is still for The Gingerman.

despite my previous comment, I would actually greatly like to come to this. But the 21st is the worst possible date for me, as I will be flying to orlando that day. have fun, folks, but if the date changes, please by all means post it here. an earlier date would be aces.

Revival's good for me--someone go early and grab that big back space outside.

What if it's raining?
posted by brujita at 9:41 PM on September 14, 2007

If it's raining, then whoever gets there first can grab as much of the upstairs as possible instead. Which will hardly be relevant, because if it's raining, fewer non-mefites will be going out for a drink and competing with us for space.

One of the largest meetups I ever attended was at Revival, so I don't think space will be an issue. If people will mention in this thread whether or not they plan to go, then I'll be happy to call the bar next week with a rough estimate and see if they'll reserve an area for us or offer us any specials. Considering how few people are usually out drinking at 7pm, they'll most likely bend over backward to accomodate us.

DaShiv has to go to Revival, it's a New York institution!

I vote for Revival! (please add this as a credit to my account for the next time I suggest trying someplace new.)

So noted.

The Ginger Man (which serves food) was the site of the first meetup I attended---although it was on a Sunday; I have no idea how it is on weekends.

I fly out tomorrow! Yay!

But my Monday/Tuesday (17th/18th) night host had a change in his availability, so now I'm making some last minute calls/emails and keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have a place to go once I've landed. Things just got a whole lot more interesting. And perversely amusing.

I've never been; I have a feeling I'm going to like this city. Despite the omens.

Count me in.

I'll try'n'be there.

This is the night of Yom Kippur and I haven't decided yet which service I'll be attending.
posted by brujita at 9:26 AM on September 17, 2007

A few of us can't make it that day and are meeting up with DaShiv for some quiets on Tuesday evening, 7pm at Grassroots Tavern. So if you can't make Friday, here's another!
posted by gaspode at 9:30 AM on September 17, 2007

Tues tomorrow or Tues the week after?
posted by amberglow at 1:28 PM on September 17, 2007

Tues tomorrow.
posted by CunningLinguist at 1:52 PM on September 17, 2007

oops, sorry amberglow! Yeah, tomorrow.
posted by gaspode at 1:55 PM on September 17, 2007

I won't be able to show up tomorrow until after 9:30.
posted by brujita at 9:36 PM on September 17, 2007

oh noes! nah, we'll still be there. no worries. at least, I will.
posted by shmegegge at 10:00 AM on September 18, 2007

Oh shit! Showtime is tonight! How the days here are flying by.
posted by DaShiv at 6:30 AM on September 21, 2007

I think I'm in.

Can someone confirm the deets since this thread is all over the gd place.

REVIVAL, 7:00 PM. Look for us out back, or upstairs.
posted by hermitosis at 8:03 AM on September 21, 2007

Heading down there now. I'm the dude with the tractor t shirt.
posted by muckster at 2:48 PM on September 21, 2007

Hooray! What fun.

I know these are not the photos everybody's waiting for, but until DaShiv posts his, maybe my pics will tide you over. I don't have the "Who the hell are you?" cheat sheet, so any help tagging these would be appreciated.
