Friggin' amberglow.

He probably won't even pick a place in Queens.

Cool. We can assemble the Mefi contingent for the protests. I'll bring the blue ski masks.

Watch him go all Midtown on our asses.
A place like, oh, the Black Sheep upstairs, just to pick a name at random, would be so like him. ;>

Also, we need more torches than last time. We cannot run out of torches again! That was very embarrassing, and the state remained unsmashed! I personally, however, got very smashed.

Just for that, we're having it at La Fleur's! ; >

(i'm cool with anywhere in Manhattan--the black sheep is close to my office, but i'd rather we went somewhere with an outside area too.) I'll think of places and get back to you.

Oh, amber, I was just making shit up to promote a reaction!

Black Sheep is fine, but we'll save it for the wintertime, when the weather is, as the kids like to say, teh suck.

Everything you've ever said is brilliant.
Anything you wanna do is fine with me.

Oh man, if you have it at la Fleur's I am SO there...

you'd love it, lilboo--they're so hot (and sweet, too). We'll have to go one night. : >

ok, as for places: anyone ever been here? Cabin Club at Pinetree Lodge? (it sounds fun--kicky even). Or we could do DBA again, or maybe Barramundi? or Max Fish?

any suggestions?

Hey crash, where in MA you at? I'm out at the end of the Cape, and up for coffee anytime.

"Hey crash, where in MA you at?"

All over it, man. All over it.

Actually, staying in Nashua, working in Boxboro.

crash, the GFL* draft is this Saturday at my house, so I'll be a little busy - however, there will be plenty of burgers and brewskies available. Gimme an email.

* - "Gnational Football League". Yes, the "G" is silent.

So yeah, Thursday's fine by me. And Amberglow, just name a place and we'll all follow like the sheep we are. :)

Oh and a time, let's say 8pm? Or is that past everyone's bedtime?
posted by falconred at 7:21 PM on August 23, 2004

8's good, but let's make from 7 on, just in case.

I don't know--maybe that silly summercamp place? : >
posted by amberglow at 8:50 PM on August 23, 2004

Summercampplace is fine by me, but I promise death to anyone who starts singing kumbaya.
posted by falconred at 10:01 PM on August 23, 2004

Actually, for the first time, I'm gonna have to pass on an NYC meetup. I'm extremely tired and I haven't been feeling well lately, so have a good time without me, and rest assured I shall be there with you in a spiritual sense or just lingering like a particularly pungent horseradish fart.
posted by jonmc at 7:44 AM on August 24, 2004

Okay, who are you and why are you logging in under jomnc's name? You think we wouldn't catch you?

Whaddya mean you're not coming?


Cabin Club could very easily work. I went there once last year and had a blast. It's not too theme-y, but it ain't the same old unkicky same old.

I hear some nights it's crazy, but hey, the good joints always are, baby.
posted by chicobangs at 7:48 AM on August 24, 2004

ok, so let's do there, from 7pm on...someone bring some lanyard, and we'll make keychains (and other things).
posted by amberglow at 10:19 AM on August 24, 2004

Should i repost this? Are we all coming? Will falconred be welcomed to our quaint little town? : >
posted by amberglow at 5:03 AM on August 26, 2004

Bummer, I would have been willing to go out tonight. It is a Friday and everything. The night that people traditionally go out. It's a little custom we have. Going out on the weekends.
