Sun August 27 at 11:30 AM, Bamboo Garden
6409 8th Ave, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Update 2: Moved to 27th since eclipse weekend seemed like quite a conflict. If that's even worse I can move dates again! Let's eat dim sum. Hope to see you for some good eats. 11:30 at Bamboo Garden in Brooklyn's Sunset Park, a short walk from the N train.

Hey, fb, and other NYC folks? Would you mind putting a city on this kinda thing? They show up in MeTa as

Proposed Meetup > NY

I clicked on it thinking it's some awesome proposed state-wide camping meetup, only to find it's dim sum in Brooklyn.

Central New York

PS We should do the camping thing sometime.

Oh no, very sorry! On my end, I see Brooklyn, which is what I typed in when I made the meetup. Will investigate.

Apparently this is a bug I can't fix. I specified Brooklyn in the title and body now, sorry for the dashed hopes of camping.

This looks fun and Sunset Park is a great neighborhood!

It depends on the day but I should be able to make it if it's on a weekend morning!

Would love to do that!

I dropped a note to the contact form about the missing borough-name bug, the mods are troubleshooting it now. (I noticed it started happening sometime several months ago, but never got around to reporting it.)

Yeah, I also contacted the mods hence my bug comment. Looks like it's fixed now.

It's weird because it seems to be Brooklyn-specific and still doesn't show up in the "proposed meetups" sections on the front page of IRL or MetaTalk.

It's happening to the UK meetups in Brighton & Manchester too, they appear as just "England".

Anyway, back to dim sum - any weekend in August is probably fine by me, though I guess I'd prefer the 19th.
posted by oh yeah! at 4:31 PM on August 4

Cool, I think I can make it for then, unless I hear any objections in the next couple days!
posted by ferret branca at 5:01 PM on August 4

If it's on the 19th, I could go. First meetup EVER. :)

Ah darn, I can't make it that day. But I hope you guys have fun!
posted by limeonaire at 8:24 PM on August 5

And I will be out of town for the eclipse! Have fun!
posted by lalex at 9:14 PM on August 5

Aw, sorry you guys can't make it! We can do another one soon.

I may or not be around because eclipse but if I am, I will be there!
posted by sockermom at 9:41 AM on August 7

I'd be happy to change the time to a non-eclipse weekend since that seems to be a common conflict!

oh yeah! and theappleonatree, would a different weekend work? If so I will switch it.

Fine by me, though I'd prefer a Sunday (wanna save my Saturdays for last-minute DragonCon prep shopping/errands).
posted by oh yeah! at 8:29 PM on August 7

Trying Sunday the 27th.
posted by ferret branca at 11:12 AM on August 9

That's better for me -- I have a standing commitment on Saturdays and while it's movable, it's easier for me to show up to something on a Sunday. So yeah!
posted by holborne at 11:38 AM on August 9

I'll be there!
