Sun September 6 at 3:00 PM, 4th Ave Pub
76 4th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Well hello there, New York! I will be where you are pretty soon! I would like to meet (up with) some New York People, and I have heard that many of them like beer. We'll see if that's true, at the 4th Ave Pub on Sunday the 6th of September at 3pm.

4th Ave Pub has an excellent beer selection, and free popcorn, and teeny tiny little beer steins. I love them, and I love mefites. The two together in one place...is this a dream...?

I hope you both can come!

I wish I could add pictures before the meetup--I have IMPORTANT PICS to share of TINY beer steins!

Typical New York. A ton of RSVPs, and only three comments.

Wish I could be there!

We're so efficient!

It's not too late to structure your career around beer and popcorn!

It's going to be maybes with me until the last minute, I'm afraid. It's going to depend on my energy level and how traffic looks that day.

Oh, no worries! I know you live pretty far away, just happy that you're considering it! :)

This is my 40th birthday.

I am wondering how I can swing getting away from the fam for some mefi drinks. I feel it will be a game-time decision.

I'll buy you whatever you want for your birthday


(disclaimer: it has to be an alcohol and you have to drink it!)

I'm sorry to tell you this, Greg, but your haiku doesn't have the right syllable count.

There is a small chance that due to a laundry snafu I will be about 15 minutes late. Apologies! If you get there before me, just find a table and enjoy and look out for the tall, dark-haired woman with the slightly pretentious Indiana Jones-y hat.

I have arrived. I have a green shirt and popcorn.
posted by Karmakaze at 12:01 PM on September 6, 2015


I'll be there in about ten minutes. I'm shorter than ifdssn9, short brown curly hair, and shortly to be surrounded by popcorn.
posted by Salamandrous at 12:03 PM on September 6, 2015


Out in the back of the back.
posted by Salamandrous at 12:15 PM on September 6, 2015


Hey so I'm still on my way! Many apologies. The people already there are veteran meet-uppers and you are in good hands. Don't give up on me, Mefites. Don't give up on your dreams.

We're all in the backyard now!

I had a great time meeting everyone; I'm sorry I had to leave so early! Hopefully, another meetup is around the corner, kids...

I don't know if I have ever before eaten that much popcorn and that is saying something.

Also all you people are awesome too!

And great hats.

This was a lot of fun, and great to meet everyone!

That said, I think I have had enough popcorn that I don't want to even think about it for a good while. Even with the Old Bay seasoning on it.

This Is Just to Say

I have been missing
the mefites
that are in
the city

with whom
I could probably
be drinking
at meetups

Forgive me
med school has robbed me of any semblance of social life;
it's so intense
and so cold

(Seriously, they love to blast the air conditioning in this place. Also seriously: I'm practically aching for meetups with all of you.)
