Sun October 17 at 8:30 PM, Spuyten Duyvil
359 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
turtlegirl and I will be in New York City for one night only (Sunday, 17 October) to visit family (MeFi noob, bellebelle!) and would like to do a meetup in Brooklyn. Hugh Janus suggested Spuyten Duyvil knowing how much we like good beer. Hope others can join us!

Oh! Tell Esther I said hi! Hope the restaurant is going well! Sorry I can't join you - I'm going to be in DC. Have fun!

Gah! I'll still be in NH.

DUH, of course I will be there! I even took the next day off work, so I don't have to rush home at a decent hour.

It's a big maybe, but I'd love to swing this and meet y'all.

Terrapin and Turtlegirl are two of the most awesome MeFites I have ever met, so if you get a chance to meet them, don't hesitate!

Nice bar pick! I will try to make it.

Oh dear; I'll be out of town. Enjoy the fine beers, though! Also, you'll be within stumbling distance of Fette Sau -- I suggest you grab a little pork belly while you're on that block!

I'm afraid I can't make this one or the one on the 16th, but I have a question.

WHERE should I be looking for upcoming meetups now? I don't see either of these on the sidebar in this "IRL" page, am I looking in the wrong place? While I can't make either of these anyway, I also didn't even KNOW about them until just now.

Confirmed Upcoming Meetups are in the Sidebar on Metatalk, same as before.

Mr. hermitosis and I will be there!

Mr. Zoomorphic and I are coming, too. Will I get dirty looks if I order a red wine? Beer makes me yawny.

Looks like I'm right on the L line in manhatten so it'll make sense to take that across the {body of water} to have a couple beers.

I'm going to pop in my hotel and then run over a bit later, will be there by 9:30 at the latest. It will be cool to meet northern Mefites!

We are at the last table in the back. Will update if we move outside. You can also look for the lame girl drinking red wine at arguably the city's best beer bar.

We are in the outside area!

That was totally worth taking the R to the Q to Union Sq. to get the L because the G wasn't running. A pleasure meeting all of you!

I love you all.
