Let's chit chat!

I'm interested in planning a meet up where people can chit chat and get to know each other. I've never been to a meet up so I don't really know how these things go. I would say we could go to a chill bar as long as they have non alcoholic drinks. If anyone has other ideas, those would be great too. Proposed time: early evening, in a week or so. Does anyone have preferences for time and day?

March for Science NYC

I'm attending the NYC March for Science, and past experience has shown that protests are much more enjoyable if you are not alone. Also I'm not the biggest fan of crowds, so It would be nice to have a friendly group to go with. [more inside]

How Many Single Mefis in Greater NYC Would Like to Meet Other Single Mefis?

I can't believe I'm doing this, but the hell with it! It's a new year! So why not boldly go where no Mefi has gone before!? I wrote this recent Metatalk question — and have likely been giving nightmares to Cortex ever since. But before the thread devolved entirely into jokes, a few commentators suggested organizing an IRL Mefi Single People Meetup. After all, we're in New York, aren't there a bunch of us here? My gut instinct was to dismiss the idea entirely, which is why I wrote: "For those (coupled?) extroverts suggesting interested parties just host a singles Mefi meet-up, let me just say this: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. That's a good one!" But then.... [more inside]

Long-time MeFi user Phire is gonna be in New York City from May 28th to June 1st! We should obviously get together at some point while she's around (and I'll make a pilgrimage up if at all possible). Quoth her: "The only firm commitment we have is the game on Sunday afternoon, so maybe just propose something for that weekend and see what times work for people?"
