NYC Meetup, Friday, April 10th, 8:00, Sixth Ward. Everyone had their birthday parties already and BSG is over so I don't want to hear any excuses.

The Sixth Ward, at 191 Orchard St., Lower East Side. 8:00. We'll see you there!

This is really Optimus Chyme's dealie, but he got busy with his shoutout to Greg Nog and EmpressCallipygos on their baconing and used up his weekly MeTa stipend.

I infiltrate your thread and say that I am playing at Arlene's Grocery in the LES this Sunday at 8.

....You forgot about Good Friday.

Okay, it's my niece's first Easter, and she's only six months old and she may wear the thing that her auntie Kim made for her with her own two hands and she may be doing the whole Easter basket thing for the first time and that's going to be adorable because she's just a baby and so I'm going to be heading up to Massachusetts for that and I know this is an excuse but DAMMIT, that is JUST TOO BAD....

Six months is more or less the peak of a human being's cuteness, so EC is excused. Ludwig, I really liked that song you sent me, so I might drop by Arlene's the next day. Does that mean you'll be in town on Saturday? Also, why are you people up this late?

I'm up driving my cat mad with some mp3 files.

...I may be able to make it after all; will play it by ear.

I'm turning into one of those people who says "I'm there!" and then doesn't end up bothering, so let's just say "we'll see."

If I'm not impounded in the theater getting ready for my show (to which you all should come), I'll be there.

Alas, I don't think I can make it (Good Friday). Have fun, all!

That's my boyfriend's birthday.

So let's see, the last few meetups have been:

-day had a bridal shower to attend/oscar night
- Watchmen opening
- a wedding
- boyfriend's birthday

I am going to just schedule one myself next time, I think.

Of course it's Good Friday; MeFi meetups make the Best Fridays.

Ah, right, that kind of Good Friday. Well, it'll be a shame to miss you guys, TPS. Next time for sure.

Remind me to play the lottery on that day...or make sure I don't die, I forget which.

I'll probably be there.

I don't live in New York.

Alas, I'll be busy Good Fridaying it up as well.

zoomorphic, I'm at Arlene's this Sunday the 5th. I'll be driving up from Philly just for the show, but I'll probably hang out for awhile afterwards.
posted by ludwig_van at 8:09 AM on April 3, 2009

If I'm able to make it to a meetup that weekend, I'll be at the one with beer and sausages, natch.
posted by HotPatatta at 8:30 AM on April 3, 2009

Also, I just realized the meetup is on a Friday, not a Saturday, so my comment is already null. This is why I shouldn't be allowed to organize anything, ever.

I'll be hanging out with my mom Passover-style, have fun!
posted by rmless at 8:54 AM on April 3, 2009

Sorry, I'll be at some fancy restaurant for my anniversary. (no excuses, hah!)

Next time.
posted by timepiece at 12:34 PM on April 3, 2009

It's also Passover.

sorry guys I should have titled it NYC Country Club-Style Meetup (No Jews or Catholics)

Well, on Good Friday evening, at least Christ won't be around to make anyone feel self-conscious with His holier-than-thou shtick, until He shows up again on Sunday.

I'll be around this Sunday and could totally stop by Arlene's.

Yo I'll be trying to be there.

So I'm just going to be watching Dollhouse by myself, then?

Just posting in this thread to put it back up in your Recent Activity. We'll be there no matter how many of you aren't, so come by and say hello.
posted by Optimus Chyme at 9:26 AM on April 10, 2009

So, I'm thinking I might actually go. How do I recognize everyone? It's going to be really crowded in a LES bar on a Friday night where most people had at least 1/2 the day off.
posted by overhauser at 9:30 AM on April 10, 2009

I'll put a FRIENDS OF MATT HAUGHEY thing on the table.
posted by Optimus Chyme at 9:40 AM on April 10, 2009

Whee! I'll be there! Wahoo!

...Sorry, just thought this thread looked a little lonely.
posted by EmpressCallipygos at 11:16 AM on April 10, 2009

I'll be there, too. In seersucker (it may be gray out, but I insist that it's spring).
posted by ocherdraco at 11:20 AM on April 10, 2009

Gah, forgot the sign. I'm the bearded guy in the blue jacket and Z is in a dress with a big white bow, table on the right side.
posted by Optimus Chyme at 5:00 PM on April 10, 2009

Forgot the sign. I am the bearded dude in the white shirt and blue jacket; z is in a blue dress with a white collar. We're at a big table on the right.

We had a great time but are exhausted as heck; thanks to everyone who made it to the NYCCCSM.
posted by Optimus Chyme at 7:29 PM on April 10, 2009

Fun times as always. One thing I like about NYC meetups is that I never end up drinking too much.
posted by fuq at 12:32 AM on April 11, 2009

That's because we're all running our mouths. No time to drink!
posted by ocherdraco at 7:55 AM on April 11, 2009

Good meeting you all! That was a nice cozy group.
posted by yarrow at 8:04 AM on April 11, 2009

It was a mellow, intimate gathering; I kinda like those. I mean, I also like the huge ones too. I just like changin' it up.
posted by EmpressCallipygos at 10:55 AM on April 13, 2009

You know what I like? Pictures of meetups.

posted by ocherdraco at 1:28 PM on April 13, 2009

Heh, so I bought a $20 win for life ticket on the 10th. I ended up winning $25 on it, so thanks to you guys, I'm up $5. Woo!
