Guy Fieri's not the only American with a kitchen in THIS city

Sun December 9 at 2:00 PM, Becco
355 W 46th St, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
As I feel eideteker has a number of points concerning the December 9th Meetup, and it's not often that folks from out of town get to see other members of the community, I propose a counter-shindig the same hour and day over at Becco, which is 2 blocks away in Time Square. Thus, in the spirit of civility and diplomacy, the two groups can converge afterward and shake hands. Who's with me, comrades?

Havana Central is overpriced and only okay, but their mojitos are pretty good. Enjoy!

I'm still trying to think of a reason that would get me to come to anywhere near Times Square willingly.

Maybe one of the places on 9th ave?

Any other venues in mind? I'm open.

I think there's a bunch of Mefites meeting up at Guy Fieri's that same day, maybe you could combine meetups!

There are tons of reasonably priced independent places in Hell's kitchen.

How about Becco? It's not too pricey, accepts credit/debit, can accomodate groups and reservations, and is supposed to be able to accomodate kids should anyone bring them along.

In the absence of objections, Becco it is.
Max reservation seems to be for 20, so if there's any spillover, have folks jump into this thread.

Will you guys be needing any sparkly nailpolish?

If one is planning on venturing into the Times Square, one should by necessity wear sparkly nailpolish. Preferably blue.

Damn, so now I'm missing the war of the meetups in NYC? Hopefully there'll still be a NYC for me to come back to!

I'm surprisingly in the city due to Sandy and have been jonesing to get to a meetup. I'd love to join you all if possible!

I need to go up to Albany on Saturday, so I'm going to have to pass.

I got tied up in something at the last minute - sorry folks.

I'll try for New Years, or one of the other shindigs.

Unless it's Guy's again. Then it'll be Becco.
