    No, but very close! Mine is La Vie on 1st and 1st. Karma is two streets north of it. (I too have a problem.)

    so like, ok, i counted the people
    probably ballpark 14 people

    suggestions on the place? type of food?

    hah we could always do congee village ( http://www.yelp.com/biz/congee-village-new-york )but some people are less adventurous in cuisine
    ktown was another suggestion
    korean fried chicken mmm
    some place with your standard american food
    mexican food?!
    AHHH!?
    i dunno?!?!?!

    so someone else give suggestions because my brain doesn't want to think

    anywhere in nyc below central park basically is fine i suppose

    Talking is overrated. I would rather express myself through the art of modern dance. But I can do that while you guys are talking, so anywhere is fine.

    I've probably seen you on the street, lol.

    Yeah. It's probably a dumb idea, especially given the group size, but it's one of those things that's always tickled me, but not enough to actually motivate on it. Like the field trip to Mideviel Times I've wanted to take since I was 9.

    Is it as magical as they made it seem on that episode of Don't Just Sit There I saw circa 1990?

    i like all kinds of food. i'm am definitely food-adventurous and like korean, indian, ethiopian, senegalese. i like it all. i don't want to spend a ton of money (my brother tells me that ninja is pretty spendy and also kind of embarrassing)

    we need to settle on something though, since reservations will prob fill up for a 15-top.

    yeah, that is the truth. i mean, congee village is one of those chinese joints with huge ass tables and they seat big groups before small groups.
    i went at chinese new years time and it was good and cheaaaap.

    umm, ok, well, i'll just ask some friends and do some googling and figure out something by tonight, but feel free to drop more suggestions.

    I don't care where we go so long as I can get in and have a decent conversation with people (so no blasting subwoofers please)

    the K-town idea is cool especially if it's a Korean BBQ place, but I know that can get asspensive. Also as everyone knows...I am totes down for hookah. ;) There is a nice place in the East Village called Cloisters I like, but you have to buy a drink, it's max 4 people to a hookah, and each hookah is $20.

    Also Shaz, No-Quarter said he might come too, so 15 people ballparked

    Meh I'd prefer to abdicate all responibility, especially since Shaz "feels responsible". :)

    Maybe a few listings and a poll?

    if we are gonna do chinese and go to chinatown, i would instead recc places like congee village as said before (http://www.yelp.com/biz/congee-village-new-york big tables, and is in LES instead so easier to go to bars and other things around it afterwards) or something like http://www.yelp.com/biz/joes-shanghai-new-york-2 soup dumplings
    thing is they dont take resvys

    but i would be fine with dim sum, thing is, isn't dim sum like a morning/lunch thing
    and also i've never been to dim sum without a chinese speaking person who could just order everything good for me


    6 pm seems reasonable

    im bad at planning things for anything over 10 people, this is hard

    i always let other people decide for me ><

    what'd we do last time, or that time SIG was here, went to blockheads? but blockheads on a friday night is impossible esp with 15 ppl i feel like

    i cant dooo thisssss

    i don't know anything ahhh

    Blockheads is not as great indoors in the Fall/Winter as it is outdoors in Spring/Summer.

    You told me to maek poast, so here I am.

    I would also be able to attend. As for foods, nothing fancy or too expensive. What are we planning to do otherwise? See a movie? Black Swann looks goods. If not, drinking and general debauchery are fine.

    but I will be up for shenanigans after that

    rio, do it, i dont care and i CANT HANDLE THE PRESSURE OF DECIDING MYSELF and like that you guys can decide better

    perhaps we can say 630 to accommodate those who must be later? maybe ill go swing by that area grab a beer


    edit:

    err, per open table when u search for 15 ppl at 630

    Availability for El Rio Grande around 6:30 PM on Friday, December 3, 2010
    No tables are available within 2.5 hours of your 6:30 PM request.

    or even within 30 days

    but i bet if you call? maybe they can accomodate 15? never been.

    There are a lot of restaurants that use open table that frankly suck at it. The restaurant has two seating areas that are quite spacious.

    Not it on calling for a reservation!
