Warren County NJ. Reprezent? December 30, 2009 7:55 PM   Subscribe

Are there enough Warren County NJ folks here to justify a meetup? Could we maybe arrange a surrounding-county thing, if not? I have a two-week hiatus, and would like to use it (plus New Year energy) to meet some new, quality folks.

Somerset County Mefite, reporting. I could definitely make it up for a meetup if one occurs and I'm free.

Aw. Wish it was last week, when we were visiting Monmouth County, and would've made the trip.

I'm in Mercer County, and probably too far away, but I wish you better luck than we have had at organizing a meet up down here.

Bergen. But I don't know if even New Year ambition will make me brave enough to meet strangers. Also, I'm not allowed in bars, which makes me a lot less fun.

Morris County-ite standing by. Would enjoy a NJ meetup if one coalesces. Please keep me in loop.

Essex county here. Might be tough for me to get there, but it's a possibility.

Aw, dang, was in Denville and the hometown (North Plainfield) this week, but am leaving tomorrow. Too bad.

I'm in Monmouth County. I was thinking of posting something for Jersey because I managed to finally get my driver's license and can actually attend stuff now.

Warren County is a little far for me as I've only just mastered driving Rt 9 without holding my wheel in a death grip. But something closer I could see my way to.

If we want to do a Jersey meetup in general, I nominate Princeton for the location. Centrally located, nice town...

Woohoo! I live near Princeton.

Sussex County here; we're practically neighbors. My schedule for the new year looks busy, but I've been meaning to make it to a meetup for ages. I guess that means count me in.

Union County here. I'm sure we could come up with something. If it were summer, I'd suggest a barbecue at one of the parks out that way.

Camden County here. But I'm so lame I don't even get out to the Philly meetups.

So, maybe we should get a headcount of the maybes? Seems we've got roughly 7, but maybe we need a count of "Definitely Maybes" who would really like to go, pending a place, date and time parsimonious with their schedules.

I'm a definitely maybe. I can do meet ups on weekends or weekdays after 730pm, because I have to work around my kids and etc.
posted by FunkyHelix at 10:03 AM on January 1, 2010

I'm a definite, as long as it happens before Jan 11. After that I disappear again into work and near-total unavailability.

I also have the complication of just having moved to NJ from Brooklyn, and I have no idea about geography here....every county heard from results in furious googling on my end..........

I'm a maybe for a meetup depending on timing and location. FWIW, I give a big thumbs up for the Princeton suggestion.

I can put myself down as a strong maybe.

New Brunswick might also be an option, if folks want to go a hair northward of Princeton.

Yeah, realistically speaking, I'm not going to Princeton. Centrally located is one thing, but Jersey is bigger than everyone seems to think. Morristown, Montclair, even Bergen County are infinitely more doable.

When I was a young New Jerseyite having statewide meetups, we often chose New Brunswick. It's on a lot of public transportation routes and is fairly central, and there are things to do. Same is true of Montclair and maybe Red Bank.

I shall be in Morristown on Feb 20-21 for a role-playing game convention. It's outside the two-week timeframe on the original post, but we're well on our way through that as it is.
