NYC Meetup with Will, THIS WEEK (Friday at 7 at the Rio Grande)

So guys,

since I'm unemployed and my brother is going to be out of town for a week, i figured i'd take the opportunity to take the Bolt Bus down to NYC and watch his house for a bit. Was hoping that some of you would be available to hang out and maybe we could do a get-together at least one day.

I'm planning on heading down probably on Wednesday and heading back on Sunday. My brother's house is in Rye and I won't have my car, so I'll be taking the train into town and probably the subways around town.

So if you live in or around the city, let us know! We can get a meal and drinks or go to a museum or a park or something!

    meep, Rye is far from the city!

    Anyway Friday is the day I can do it fo sho, but I cannot do the drink-grabby thing unless it is in a restaurant OR a bar and somebody vouches for the strength of my moral character

    I get out of work at 1 on Friday, so give me a bit to get the stink of responsibility off me before I make it up there

    Might I suggest Verlaine.

    Pros: It fits the lower east side specification and they have a GANGSTER happy hour special.

    Cons: You'll have to shave your neckbeards and wear collared shirts.

    that is not a con! that is a pro!

    it would be nice if we could find a place where we could all sit together and make ourselves heard, but i know that this is kind of asking a lot of NYC on friday night.

    Alternate suggestion based on the new "Sitting together" spec and the "I really could go for a pitcher of goddamn margaritas" spec Rio Grande

    in a bizarre coincidence, i have actually been to verlaine. it is one of like three NYC bars I've been to. It's super-crowded and loud on friday night and they card for entry (which would exclude sara). their small plates are tasty though and frankie liked their lychee cocktail.

    rio grande might be better, given that it has actual tables and takes actual reservations.

    verlaine might be more doable on a different night. we could still do everyone on friday, and whoever could make it on like thursday? will it be less crowded then?

    The only reliable method of beating the crowd at Verlaine is to bail out of work early and get there around 3PM. It gets ridiculously crowded every night.

    You can beat the system by reserving one of the tables that seats 8 comfortably, but you have to throw down a credit card for the group and I ain't gonna do that. I've been burned on that with my nearest and dearest. :)

    This. My first PA meetup was at a REALLY loud place and it kinda sucked. I'd like to be able to chat easily.

    In case it wasn't obvious, every visit by Yami comes with a bonus IrishRodent, absolutely free.

    Damn it, it's fucking noon. I demand to know if Yami shit on a desk yet.

    I'll try to think of some other suggestions too, it's definitely possible to find a quiet spot but it might take some doing.

    Yeah, so then not verlaine

    we could hit up a beer garden type place

    like bia garden or loreley or radegast
    hmm

    friday nights are tough

    (if anyone wants to come by tribeca one weekday there is a good quiet classy place near work with good happy hour that includes manhattans and sazeracs and fried chicken)

    Oh boooooy I didn't even see the thread for this until just now. Exciting!

    Beer gardens are usually a pretty safe bet, but the only one I know of is Studio in LIC (Queens).

    Time wise, IR and I leave work in Clifton at 4. We can normally be into the city within an hour or so. Depending on plans, we might go right into the city anyway because once it starts getting later traffic is nigh unbearable. If anyone in the area needs a ride, PM me and we can work something out.

    Damn it, it's fucking noon. I demand to know if Yami shit on a desk yet.
