Thu December 27 at 7:30 PM, est. 1986 Wine Bar/Lounge
43 West 33rd Street, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm home this week and looking for an excuse to come to NYC and hang out with mefites. Would anyone be up for a drink, a meal, or a show on Wednesday (26) or Thusday (27)? Update: Pencilled in est. 1986 Wine Bar/Lounge on Thursday the 27th
I'll pick a random bar— the 4th Ave Pub— but I'm also open to suggestions. My last meetups were over a year ago at the Sycamore and Druids Bar & Restaurant and they were both a lot of fun.

Yes!

Yes! Druids is meh, although sufficiently out of the way of the tourist hordes. Bwookwyn is groovy, but how about a change......Perhaps something classy near druids?

Cocktails


Great bar, although if our group was too big, then on the rocks would be too small.

Craft beers



Thoughts mefites?

I am in town all week and approve this message.

I'm frightened and excited - but if you did this on thursday this would maybe strip me of my 'meeting internet people' virginity.

Wednesday!

(Possibly Thursday, but later in the evening.)

Also, anyone want to go to Clover Club? It's in the dreaded Brooklyn :P but so delicious. Been looking for a chance to go out for fancy cocktails to celebrate finishing my exams...

I could do Brooklyn on Wednesday, but Thursday I'm working till 6 & then have to catch the PATH before 10pm so I can only do Manhattan that day.

Sounds like Thursday, Manhattan, location as yet to be determined but on the West side somewhere within PATH vicinity would be our best bet.

Also, yaymukund, are you more into cocktails or beer?
posted by the young rope-rider at 6:21 AM on December 24, 2012


If it's near PATH we're looking for, then near 33rd st in K-town this place is OK, and if you want to go further south and west...more options open up.

I'm more into cocktails by a little bit. Manhattan would be perfect actually, since I'll probably stay at the hostel near there. Feel free to suggest more places but I'm going to pencil in Thursday at est. 1986 Wine Bar/Lounge!

Huzzah. I will be there.
posted by lalochezia at 9:17 AM on December 24, 2012


Sounds great, yaymukund! If you want to go ahead and call it I will happily RSVP yes.
posted by the young rope-rider at 9:18 AM on December 24, 2012


Oh, you already called it! Great! YAY(MUKUND)!
posted by the young rope-rider at 9:19 AM on December 24, 2012


I should probably confirm too.. done.

Can't wait to see everyone, and to meet some of you for the first time!

I shall attend.

See you tomorrow— I'll be checking my mefimail and this thread if anyone has questions about anything.
posted by yaymukund at 7:34 PM on December 26, 2012


OK, how often should I be cleaning my beta fish tank?
posted by Potomac Avenue at 10:40 PM on December 26, 2012


Once every week or so. But if you have two betas in one tank, I think they clean each other.

Oh hey this is right by Penn Station - perfect for trekking from NJ!
posted by Karmakaze at 9:52 AM on December 27, 2012


Look how many people are coming! I'm so excited.
posted by the young rope-rider at 11:19 AM on December 27, 2012


I'm done with work and at the wine bar now checking it out - apparently if we're a large group they will want to charge us a $20 per person minimum. I think I may wander back out and find a quick cheap meal so that other mefites can enter more stealthily.
posted by oh yeah! at 3:43 PM on December 27, 2012


We are departing for midtown presently. See you soon!
posted by computech_apolloniajames at 4:00 PM on December 27, 2012


I'm there, in a white shirt at the bar. Looks like they want a number for the size of our group before giving us a table, hmm..
posted by yaymukund at 4:09 PM on December 27, 2012


Can we just sit at the bar or is there not enough room?

We just standing at the bar word up

It was great seeing everybody. Happy new year!
