I assume so it's a williamsburg! I don't know tho. Any suggestions?

I ask because I am committed (COMMITTED) to coming to this and do not have the stamina for two meetups so I was hoping to make a WEEKLY meetup and conjoin it with this one, and ride on its earnest coattails.

Soft Spot is a great bar right nearby.
