It's a Meetup in Hell's Kitchen/Being held at Perdition
posted August 4, 2013 1:34 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed August 14 at 7:00 PM, Perdition
692 10th Avenue, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
To hold up my end of the Brooklyn/Manhattan meetup-calling bargain, and to welcome Rory Marinich to NY, I would like to invite you all to travel to Perdition in scenic Hell's Kitchen on Wednesday, August 14th around 7 pm.
Perdition has a wide variety of bar snacks and food, but the real draw is Tehuitzingo right across the street for cheap, delicious tacos (the bar allows outside food). We'll have a reserved space in the back half of the bar, and the bartenders are generally amenable to turning down the music/letting us pick what they play. Hope to see a bunch of you there!

I am so, so excited that this will be someone's first meetup! I might even bring party favors.

ausdemfenster, is this the place you and mountmccabe mentioned at the last meetup?
posted by zarq at 6:50 AM on August 7, 2013


Yes indeed! It's not very fancy, but it's spacious and usually empty.
posted by ausdemfenster at 7:18 AM on August 7, 2013


Cool!

I'm not sure yet what my schedule next week is going to look like, but I'll do my best to keep the evening free.
posted by zarq at 7:52 AM on August 7, 2013


I'd really like to come to this but I just had a baby a month ago and haven't had the courage to go beyond a block from my apartment yet. So it's a maybe for me!
posted by spec80 at 11:16 AM on August 7, 2013


Congratulations, spec80! We'll be sure to toast to BabySpec80 either way.

Another chance to accidentally ignore zarq for the length of my stay at the meetup?

How can I say no?

(By saying maybe.)

If I do get to go, I will buy you a taco. :D

Oh man they have offal tacos. I love offal. Now I am excited.
posted by griphus at 11:01 AM on August 8, 2013 [1 favorite]


zarq and griphus, it should go without saying that I would be delighted to see you both, especially as there's a solid chance this'd be my last meetup in NYC for quite some time!

I am living in the city for a few weeks and have never ever been to a meetup, so will try to come if I am not fried after 5 hours of improv class!

TBD but potentially yay!

Goodbye to greg hello to Rory. This will be a night that the song Oh What A Night was specifically written for...
posted by Potomac Avenue at 11:40 AM on August 11, 2013


I had plans but I'm trying to switch things around since this sounds fun and I'm way due for a meetup!
posted by yaymukund at 8:10 AM on August 13, 2013


I will probably be done with work around 6pm, so if anyone is game to meet up earlier, I'm all about that. Otherwise I guess I'll go to the gym like a responsible adult...
posted by larthegreat at 6:19 AM on August 14, 2013


I'd love to go to this-- I want to explore more Hell's Kitchen places, as well as meet Rory-- but they're canceling exercise classes at my gym for two weeks starting next week, so I'm trying to make the most of it now. It's a shame, since a lot of you were at the Friends R Hard meetup, and I'd love to see you all again!
posted by bookwibble at 7:57 AM on August 14, 2013


Lar, I can come earlier, got no plans between work and 7.
posted by mlle valentine at 8:08 AM on August 14, 2013


I may be a bit early too. Maybe.
posted by griphus at 8:14 AM on August 14, 2013


ok cool, I much prefer a cold beer to running at the gym. I'll be there around 6ish.

(I'm tall, wearing an intense red necklace and carrying a bright turquoise backpack)
posted by larthegreat at 8:22 AM on August 14, 2013


If at all possible I will be there early as well.
posted by Potomac Avenue at 9:53 AM on August 14, 2013


Just clicked the "yes" button (!) -- I may be early too
posted by Mchelly at 9:55 AM on August 14, 2013


For identification purposes, I'll be wearing a mostly-open short-sleeved button-down shirt, gaudy jewelry, a fancy hat and oh my god i'm dressed like a pimp

I hope to be there before 7 as well! I will come by after I pick up our CSA share for the week.

The other day ausdemfenster confirmed that they will have the room in the back of the bar reserved for us. I am excited!
posted by mountmccabe at 10:44 AM on August 14, 2013


Fuck yeah back room!

Fuck yeah CSA share!

Fuck yeah possibly selling me some of your CSA share?

I'll be there shortly after 6 as well!
posted by (Over) Thinking at 11:53 AM on August 14, 2013


Oh man I am so excited! If y'all get there before I do, tell the bartender you're there with Tiffany's group and we have the back area reserved at 7. I can't imagine it'll be crowded, but you never know. Party favors and meet up fun for all!

I think I'm going to be somewhat late, guys, sorry. I'm waiting on a ups package that theoretically is supposed to show up within the next seven minutes.

Congratulations spec80!

Tacos? Damn it, im sitting alone under a red disco ball and taco-less.

I'm SO SO CLOSE
posted by the young rope-rider at 3:13 PM on August 14, 2013


I would offer to pick some up for you but I had to fish change out of the bottom of my purse just to pay for mine!
posted by (Over) Thinking at 3:22 PM on August 14, 2013


On my way, ready to fund a taco run so y'all can experience the magic of Tehuizingo!

Planning to get guacamole and chips for the table to curry favor.
posted by shothotbot at 3:54 PM on August 14, 2013


Hmm. Not sure they have such a thing.
posted by shothotbot at 4:02 PM on August 14, 2013


I should be heading in from W'burg shortly.

Will be rolling in fashionably late. Coming down now from Morningside Heights.

"NOW IM GWTTING TACOS ZOMG"

Fun fact: Potomac Avenue is an anagram for Taco Pomavenue.

Sorry I didn't get many pictures that were not selfies. I mainly took those to see how I would look with Einstein's mustache.

The potato and jalapeno taco was pretty spicy, but I had a great time otherwise!
