Er, bump.

Now that we don't need to save TWoP or kick DC's ass, are there any normal, alcohol-fueled, facial-and-manicure-free, don't-have-to-get-out-of-bed-before-10-AM, Tubeylicious events in our future?

I believe there's something to celebrate, as you know if you read the Bugs/Feedback section like a good little poster -- MisterZ and EponasWildDaughter got married today (yesterday). Where did they meet? That's right. TWoPCon NYC. Maybe they'll tell us more, but the Z-man posted here about it. I think I was there -- was it the one on the Lower East Side? November-ish?

Many congratulations, you crazy kids!

Yeah, I'd be up for something. Anything. Did I mention I have nothing going on with my life?

Hey New Yorkers. I am going to be moving to NYC in two weeks from Dallas, and since I don't know that many people, would love to see if there can be a Twopcon in February.

Oh, and if you can make all that cold you have go away, I would greatly appreciate it.

If you are having a TWoP Con in mid-February, please shout out as I shall be over from the UK for a week, around Presidents Day. If you don't mind having a Brit girl tagging along, that is.

Ditto on Dougintx remarks re the cold.

President's Weekend sounds good- but anyone want to do anything for the Golden Globes? Nothing says we can't do two things.

I have no solid ideas, though- anyone?

Then we'll have to see about changing your username to Douginnyc.

mr pseudo & I might be able to do something in February, but March is better - on top of his travel schedule, we're prepping for my grandfather's 100th birthday!

Well, that'll teach me to rely on "Track this Topic" completely! It had been over 30 days since someone posted so it expired. Glad I checked this section out of curiosity!

Yeah, it's been WAAAAY too long since we've had a regular NYC TWoPCon, as fun as the Sephora one I went to was. The last one was I think June or July in Central Park. February is doable for me, but like pseudostudent, March would actually work a little better. I'm taking a class for the next month and it'll be over by then.

Hi, all!
Are those of us in CT welcome in the NY group? I just started posting here, even though I have been lurking for quite some time. I would love to meet some of the fellow TWoPers in the area!

March sounds great---that's about when the weather starts getting a little more tolerable and I manage to climb out of my sweats long enough to go out :)

I'm game for whenever. What kind of event are we thinking of? Just going to a bar to hang out (the Tiki Room is fun) or something more planned out like finding somewhere with a tv that will let us screen something snarkworthy?

If anyone is interested, there will be some TWoPpers at CBGBs tonight. The Chase Theory is a great Florida band. They go on at 7pm. Check it out, meet some Florida/Philadelphia TWoPpers. It should be fun.

There's been a ton of talk on SATC board (subways, buses and the pros/cons of the outer burroughs) "Visiting Manhattan" plus talk of meeting up. I'll invite them stop over here. Maybe we could even meet up in Brooklyn or Queens!

Well, I'll be coming into the city from Jersey, so I'd prefer Manhattan to the burroughs.

I had lunch today at Blue Smoke, on 27th between Park & Lexington. Good barbeque, big room, and they've got some kind of jazz club downstairs. I don't know if they do anything special on the weekends as far as mid-day brunch or evening music, but it's a good place for us non-vegans.

I think blue smoke might be a bit pricey & gets pretty crowded. I think a neutral bar (near some subway stops) would be choice.

True enough -- I didn't really notice the prices because it's restaurant week (yay!) so they had a price fixe menu (plus it was work thing, and the vendor was treating us).

I'm more of an eater than a drinker (ok, I'm a total lightweight - one drink is all I can handle<g>), and bars can be a noisy place to try to get to know people. But as long as someone scopes out the acoustics of a place beforehand, we should be ok.

Yea, I think previous bar hops were to places that were large, quiet enough for NYC, and offered food. The problem (I think) with restaurants is firming up the exact # of people, and depending on the size, finding a place that everyone is cool with.
There's definitely enough places to pick from. East Village there's Ike's, which is mid range price but never too crowded at happy hour (the few times I've been) & I believe has food. There's a divey place which is pretty large on the LES, called like Club Lotus which is neither a club nor a lotus, but tons of seating, and off the Rivington/Ludlow stretch that it's not too crowded (i've only been a couple times but would be willing to scope..but no food). Someone else can pipe up with some ideas above 14th Street.

DTUT? 2nd Ave/85th. I'm a westsider, but I would make the trip crosstown. It's near the Lex/86th 4,5,6 stop.

I had no idea that this thread existed. Thanks, skagirl, for posting the link at the SATC forum.

I'll keep checking to see where and when everyone decides to meet. Sounds like fun!

All the way from 86th to 85th! Hee...

Okay, good work, that place looks great... March? Fine, though I'm rehearsing or performing all but a few nights that month, that's my own problem. How about a day of the week? Weekends might be hard to reserve the "back room" in a hip 'n' happenin' spot like DT/UT. Although many of you surely work normal jobs and prefer Fri/Sat. Somebody, run with this! (I don't plan parties, it's rare enough I even attend them...)

I'm good for weekend nights (sorry, pianodan, I'm one of those normal job people, much to my chagrin), and will even travel that far uptown. March sounds good, maybe it won't be so freakin' frigid outside.

Quit stalking me, pd. Seriously though, trekking all the way east to 2nd Avenue is the very least I could do to meet up with you good people.

I would just suggest doing it on a night when there is no band scheduled at DTUT. March works for me - I don't care about college basketball, and most shows will be in reruns after Feb sweeps. Maybe stay away from Thursdays for the Survivor-philes amongst us.

Wow. I've had a BDA (bad date experience) at DTUT also. I haven't been back since.

well, this is a bit freaky - as another member of the club with a bad date experience at DTUT.

Not that I wouldn't go there again... but.... could this be some sort of omen?

Is anything going on around NYC about watching the finale of "The Apprentice?" Not even entirely sure where to post this, so I figured I'd try here and hope that some kind soul can redirect me if this is the wrong place.
