Giving Best Bar In The World a Boost

In past threads on the blue I've nicknamed my local, Putnam's Pub and Cooker, "Best Bar In The World". Wanna come have brunch and see what I'm talking about? It's reopening after a fire and needs a little extra love right now. [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]

Organizing in the new world order

In the aftermath of the election, I've been looking for ways to be more active and effective in our local political scene and come up confused/disappointed. Local party organization seems closed/inactive, but I also am a TOTAL NEWBIE. This meetup will be to discuss our coping strategies and action strategies for the next four years. Brooklyn Inn, 148 Hoyt St. Subways: A/C/G to Hoyt, F to Bergen, 2/3/4/5 to Nevins (10 minute walk), many trains to Atlantic-Pacific (10 minute walk)

New Salon NYC - Meeting #10

Popcorn, Pubs, and having cool Parties

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...?
