From CitySearch:

very new, downtown spot not yet destroyed by the bridge and tunnel crowd

I suppose if I come from work I'm cool, but if I stop home to change ( in Hoboken,NJ ) I'll be cramping the places style.

Decisions decisions.......

I have requested that Evanizer channel my incoherent and nearly witty homosexualist remarks, as I will ruefully not be in attendance. I can only hope that as he does so he is standing behind jonmc for a cheap feel.

So why did I think this was on Friday?

I guess I'm an idiot...

I'll be by, just not all that close to 8...
posted by andrewraff at 7:39 PM on April 24, 2002

I'll be starting about 5:30.

If anyone wants to actually meet *me*. I'm gonna bust out early, though.

I regret to say that I can't be there -- didn't know until too late to change plans. Take warning, folks: this is what happens when you try to "get a life" and stop reading MeFi and MeTa obsessively. I feel duly chastened.

I bought some "Hello my name is" tags today, so any interested parties can write their screen name on the tag. I for one am famous for forgetting names.

Someone just please remember to bring a camera! Have fun.

Hmm, this IS only a few blocks from my apartment. Are you guys gonna have a big MeFi banner?
posted by malphigian at 10:43 PM on April 24, 2002

good job. that means i can just look for the people wearing nametags. i should be by around 10pm (or maybe a little earlier). i'm selling my soul to kaplan until then, which is just down the street, doncha know.

i'll probably need a whiskey or two after that.

BT - you must come!!! Please come!!! I'll be so sad if you don't. I don' t mean to rudely beg, but PLEASE!!!

I'll be there too.
posted by goneill at 6:45 AM on April 25, 2002

this is me.
posted by goneill at 6:49 AM on April 25, 2002

Hmm.. maybe I'll be there closer to 7 now.. I have a work-related event at 6 I should go to..

Now, how do I recognize all you freaks? I mean, john mentioned a talisman, but what will that be?

You all better not geek out on me, or else I'll have to lay some smack down.

The wife is going to be annoyed at me, so everyone better appreciate my sacrifice.

You're a hero!!!
posted by goneill at 9:57 AM on April 25, 2002

BT- cool, dawg.

goniell- I shall be bringing another talisman that will instantly let people know where the mefi table is.

Oh and while Rob the EMT will not be attending this time due to an exam in the morning, he does send his regards.

OK, now I'm totally scared of all y'all...
posted by ltracey at 1:15 PM on April 25, 2002

yeah, for the record, goneill doesn't look like anything like her picture she posted.

And there's like a huge amount of lurkers that showed up.

And from now on, I agree with everything jonmc says.


I mean it.

Ok, maybe not.

But witchstone got a good laugh out of my attempts to be all future-thinking.. which, I guess, should be expected. My ideas that is,

But really - graphical versus textual interface is where it's at for useability in the future. Mark my words.

I just came home from CT, hanging out with my mum, sorry I couldn't make it tonight. Hope you had fun.
