NYC/Metro North MeFites meet up

Edited to make it a Thing which is Happening. So I'm coming States-side in a bit over a week. It's mostly a family-visiting trip, rather than a tourism trip, and I'll be spending quite a bit of December in Dobbs Ferry. From there, it's pretty easy to get on a train to the city and do meeting type things there too. Anyone feel like meeting up? [more inside]

Grand Central Market Game Nights -- Take two!

After checking in with Celsius1414 I'm re-posting this since it didn't get off the ground last time.

Food! Drink! Games! Friends! Food and drink and games and friends at the same time!

----

I stumbled across a mention of gaming nights at Grand Central Market in DTLA and tracked down this press release and then this page.

Game Night at Grand Central Market

Looking to unwind after a tough day at work? Searching for fast, amazing fare to satisfy your foodie cravings? Planning a non-cliche date night? Whatever your Downtown LA dilemma, the city's oldest food hub has your back.

Enter Game Night -- eat, drink and play every Thursday until 9 pm. Grab dinner and drinks from our late hours vendors over an assortment of classic and new games: ping-pong, cornhole toss, Jenga, Uno, Cards Against Humanity, Scrabble, and many more. Just head over to the Hill St. Platform to get started.

We broached the subject of a gaming night at our last meetup (mmmm ramen), so this "proposed" post is more of a means to continue that conversation than saying it should be here at GCM necessarily.

Update 9/5: The consensus during our Ethiopian food meetup conversation seemed to be that with everybody being spread out, it's difficult to make a game night plan on work nights. If someone else wants to propose game/trivia/movie meetups for their individual environs, that might be the better way to go. [more inside]
