We wanna meet some New York mefites! June 8, 2009 1:46 PM   Subscribe

My other half and I are gonna be in New York City from Tuesday, 16 June afternoon through Friday, 19 June morning. Would any of you in the NYC area like to be meeting up?

We are staying here and would be up for eats, drinks, events, experiences, happenings, and sightseeing companions anytime during the trip! But we are very ignorant of NYC so would love the locals to take the lead on helping us determine the best venue for our get-together.

Pick a day and time that work for you (evening is preferable, obvs) and we'll help out with the venue.

Unm. maybe. lemme check my non-existent assistant.

(had you said the 7th! then yes! I could have met you for a midtown midday midlunch drink but alas!)

BtGoG, are there anything you and the SO are craving?

FWIW, there's an exhibit at the Neue Galerie about the Breuke movement ( which inspired the covers of Bowie's Heroes and Lodger albums...and iggy Pop's The Idiot) which I'm dying to see.

Oh hi, hello there! I'd like to do a little meeting and greeting. My schedule is fairly open- Wednesday evening from 6-8 is out, but other than that...

Didn't know there were people who disliked it so much. :)

Let's say Wednesday, June 17.

Ooh, ooh, let's go to the High Line! (BtGoG, it's a brand new park that's just opened on an old elevated railway line.)

Oh, and I somehow missed TPS's comment about Wednesday when I posted mine. I'm also free Thursday.

The High line closes at 10, so that would be out for an evening.
posted by brujita at 8:37 AM on June 10, 2009

Ok, the 18th at 7 at the Gansevoort entrance to the High Line.....if the weather threatens to/does turn nasty the same time at Half King.
posted by brujita at 10:59 PM on June 10, 2009

Huzzah! I'll be there.

Feh. Got a play to judge.

I've put my cell # in my profile---call and text only.
posted by brujita at 12:10 AM on June 18, 2009

Ok, when are we going to call the rain plan?
posted by ThePinkSuperhero at 1:14 PM on June 18, 2009 [1 favorite]

I think the rain plan should be called now, given that the city has been deluged all day. I am going to try to make it, but I might have to stay at work too late to make it before I have to head off to another, later event.
posted by ocherdraco at 1:28 PM on June 18, 2009

Yes, rain plan, I think. I for one would prefer the Half King to a soaking on the High Line. Though the trains may be goofy. I know the 7 is out of whack right now. Dunno about the E, which is the closest train to W23/10Ave.
posted by breezeway at 1:54 PM on June 18, 2009

Wow, crazy. I actually had plans to go to the Half King later tonight to meet a friend (around 9). I'll come by at 7 and look for you all.

holy poop can this city be pissd upon. I will be at the half king at 7!!
posted by By The Grace of God at 2:26 PM on June 18, 2009

Yes, still nasty....see you at HK!

The C stops at 23rd too.
