Midday Midtown Micro Meetup for Lunch?

I work weekdays in midtown and when the weather's good I like to eat my lunch in Bryant Park, with a friend when possible and with a book when not. Any of y'all want to meet up there for lunch some weekday, once the "Winter Village" / Enforced Shopping Zone has been taken down? [more inside]

A-Goating We Shall Go

As is the other custom of our people, we gather at the Original Billy Goat Tavern, sip the tiny beers, quaff the tiny whiskeys, eat the beast (no fries). Then make the long journey to Live Wire, tip our bartenders generously and show each other the love. You know you want to.

Triangle "Kedi" showing weekend of March 10?

Anyone else excited to see Kedi, the new documentary about street cats in Istanbul, (currently at 100/85 on RT)? It starts at the Rialto in Raleigh on March 10 and seems perfect for a meetup. Durham or Chapel Hill theaters showing it could work if that's better for folks. Maybe include a stop for appetizers before or drinks after? It's all questions at this point, except for the kitties, which are solid.

Hi y'all, I'm going to be in Lakeview/Boystown in the afternoon. I'm totally flexible on time and place as long it's 4 pm or later. I just picked the Long Room because we've been there before and they have food. Can't wait to see the Chicago Cabal again!

[An alternative to the] Stand Up To Racism Demo - London

Edited: Given the problematic elements with Stand up to Racism (please see links in this thread), I'd like to find a better way to take a stand against structures of violence — one that is inclusive, looks out for survivors and creates a safe space for everybody. I've edited this post title, new copy is in brackets. I've moved the original post copy below here, kept for posterity. --- Original post: >Would anybody like to meet up for and/or after the March Against Racism National demonstration on March 18, 2017 in London? >This Stand Up to Racism Demo is for UN Anti-Racism Day. Other UK rallies are happening same day in Glasgow and Cardiff. [more inside]

CANCELLED due to lack of participants

It looks like we will not have enough participants for a useful discussion so I am canceling this meetup. There is a "public" huddle at 11:15 am at 705 Monterey Blvd (a cafe), which I have signed up for - I'm sure anybody would be welcome to attend even if you haven't signed up beforehand. Hope to see you there! The Women's March website has posted the second suggested action (description here), which is to get together with friends and neighbors and decide what issues are most important in your community, and what actions to take about them.
