essexjan and danf come to NYC! September 9, 2009 2:31 PM   Subscribe

Hey, NYC: let's meetup on Saturday, October 3rd, to celebrate visits from essexjan and Danf.

Time: 7:30 p.m. onwards; though I imagine after a few hours we'll move elsewhere for food.
Place: Common Ground. We'll have some reserved space in the back.

Hope to see you there!

I guess I'll have to be there, now.

(Thanks for putting this together TPS!)

You better, or the party will FAIL.

Three meetups in less than a month. Wow.

I figured with the other two on weeknights, a weekend meetup could still draw a crowd. And if not, I get essexjan and Danf all to myself, yaaay!

Oh, good. Because it doesn't look like I can make it to the one going on tonight.

...and I just got informed that my in-laws will be in town that weekend and we will be going out for dinner Saturday night. fuckity fuck, I'd much rather go to the meetup.

Wow, I was actually in the middle of typing, "Yay! Of course I'd love to see essexjan again, so put me down as a yes," only to be seized by a sudden feeling of foreboding right as I was typing the "e" in "yes." =( I just checked and that weekend there happens to be a work-related event. Yes, on a Saturday. I really should be done by 7:30, but the last time I promised myself I'd leave an event by X time I got kidnapped to an after party and suddenly it was 4am and I was stumbling out of Blue Ribbon Brasserie with a receipt for about $80 of marrow, oysters, etc. consumed tucked into my pocket...on a Wednesday.

Either way, I'd really like to see you while you're in town essexjan, so I'm going to try my hardest to be there, whether at Common Grounds or to go for food. But if I end up getting sucked up into some ridiculousness and can't make it... *makes "call me" motion*

I'm in.

I just put on my to do list: Make Sasshat come down to New York for the meetup. Beg, bribe or even threaten to make this happen.

I was about to whine about the placement of the meet-up (because the closest subway is the L) but then I expanded the map and realized that the PATH to the L is a relatively easy trip! Good choice, TPS!

I hope to be there.

If my every-other-Saturday thing happens on schedule, then I'll be in Manhatan that Saturday anyway, finishing up, like, 5:30pm. Plenty of time, eh. On the other hand, I am scatterbrained and and introvert and prone to fatigue. So... maybe, I think?

Well, since it's at Common Ground... (and call and ask for Dan if you haven't already booked it).

I'll be there!

I will probably be celebrating my birthday that evening (it's that Wed), so I'm most likely a no at this point. But I'll definitely be at the 10/7 meetup.
posted by cmgonzalez at 10:08 PM on September 10, 2009

I just realised that I forgot to add that I will be there, as it's also in my honour. (Although I do realise that the NYC MeFites are probably sick of the sight of me now.)
posted by essexjan at 3:57 AM on September 16, 2009

Slight change of plans due to availabililty at Common Ground- we'll be in the front section on Sat October 3rd from 6:30 on; we officially have the space until 10, so I imagine somewhere around then is when we'll be leaving for foods.
posted by ThePinkSuperhero at 3:09 PM on September 18, 2009

Grr. Can't do that weekend because I'll be in Maryland for a friend's engagement/wedding party. However, Jan and I are already making our own plans, so >thbbbbbpt!<

Noted. . .thanks, TPS!

I'll be there! See y'all then.

I've gotten sick, so sadly I'll be recuperating at home and will not have a chance to sneeze on internet people. Have fun, healthy internet people.

It was only a drive by for me, saving up for oct 7, but it seems essexjan has been replaced by an impostor half her age, and danf and his wife now have faces!
posted by StickyCarpet at 8:29 PM on October 3, 2009

Lovely to see all of you! And great to meet Danf and his lovely wife.

Great meeting all of you, even if I only remember about half the names. Katz's scared me.

Holy crow. I am never, ever anywhere near a meetup, but of course I was half a block away from this one on Saturday night. I'd have stopped in, had I known.
posted by uncleozzy at 5:52 AM on October 5, 2009

I have got thousands of photos of the meetup, including the live weblink, but am too jetlagged to think about uploading the best of them right now.
posted by essexjan at 10:54 AM on October 5, 2009

My photos just added. Feel free to add notes/comments as I'm crap at remembering user names for people I've only just met.
