Its a bit early maybe to post this but myself and i_cola are coming to ny at around the same time and it would be fun to meet all the legends in person , i was hoping by posting this a wee bit early other people outside ny might like to come...could any ny mefiers suggest good places to meetup etc ?

Max Fish? (it's an old faithful, and big--actually it's a larger version of the kind of bar we described to Miguel in his AskMe thread, with art.)

Be sure to have cameras.

we could do Katz's or somewhere beforehand for food, too.

kgb bar or else.

I'll go anywhere, so kgb's cool, my comrade.

Or how's dba? (anyone ever been? They apparently have a smoking backyard)

dba has a nice backyard but it gets very crowded. Barramundi also has a spacious garden.

dba is fantastic—best bar in the city for single malts, and a great beer selection (some great bourbons too, if you're a bourbon drinker). But it gets real full as the evening wears on, so let's get there earlyish if we're gettin' there.

KGB sounds like a nice place (the About page is certainly winning); I've never been there, but I'm willing to give it a try.

the weather should be good, so let's shoot for a place with an outside that's not the sidewalk.
posted by amberglow at 1:10 PM on March 27, 2004

I will try to make it, again. I keep on trying to use MeFi gatherings as an excuse to pick up my life in Atlanta and move it to New York (literally), but, for some weird reason, that keeps failing.

However, this time, I'm at a break point in my interminable studies. So maybe.

I don't have much opinion about where we go -- I'll let all you yanks figure that part out.

If funding comes through, I'll be in NYC around then--sounds good.

I'm a far cry from a legend, but I"d be glad to come out for some fun. Too bad you guys won't take me up on my MeFi paintball suggestion, but hey, your loss.

If Barramundi is still there, that sounds good to me [they are moving, sometime...I am not really sure when though]. Or Niagara [but it sometimes gets really busy] or Music Box. But the Mundi sounds good to me. Oh, and adam...I would love a MeFi paintball session.

I'm in NYC anyways every few months so with this much notice I think I might be able to make it - 70-80% chance i'd say.
posted by vacapinta at 1:58 PM on March 29, 2004

we get foreigners--and vaca, and thomas, and zpousman--this'll be some good meetup.

As a legend among lurkers, I will be there, though perhaps only to listen...KGB is always inviting, but it has been a bloody cold winter -- maybe the votes for someplace with an outdoor arena have the right idea.
posted by BT at 7:07 PM on March 29, 2004

Well obviously I'll be there ;-) I think I'm in town 26May to possibly 2nd June so any mini spinoff meetups...e.g:

One thing I have to do in NYC is have a good cocktail experience as per this AskMe thread. Vidiot seems to be da man who know...and if memory serves, I owe a drink...
posted by i_cola at 8:44 PM on March 29, 2004

dba is a fantastic place, but it does get crowded. Then again, so does KGB. We're going to make a serious dent anywhere we go, though.

Depending on how many of us there are going to be, there's also B-Bar or Fuel/Phebe's, both of which have good space, atmosphere and a solid drinks menu.

(I want to meet some lurkers! I must consume their brains to sustain me! Also, I think I owe Vidiot a drink, so i_cola, howsabout I just buy you one?)
