Blarging it up

I'm going to be blarging up New York from the 4th to the 6th of November, and I was wondering if any mefites would want to meet up? It's been a while since I lived in the city, so any suggestions for a venue would be awesome. (I tend to go by the name blarg on #bunnies. I should probably go by that name on metafilter, too!)

First Little Rock meetup?

I'm visiting my grandparents in Little Rock and suggested a meetup to middleclasstool. Sorry for the weird day, but I'm only there Sunday and Monday nights. He suggested the Capitol Hotel due to its location and atmosphere. Not sure who else is in LR, but I've heard you've never had a meetup? Time to change that!

Drinks in New York

I'll be leaving dear old Blighty and heading over the pond to New York from the 10th - 16th November, in advance of going to a friend's wedding the weekend after. I decided to head out a week early in order to catch up with some old friends and spend some time wandering around the city again (I lived there for a while a few years back). It occurs though, that this presents an opportunity to maybe make some new friends as well. So what about it New York MeFites - fancy meeting up for a few drinks one night?
