Anybody interested in seeing Jaws on the big screen at the UPCA? They will begin with a 'beach party', then a Q&A with 2 shark experts. Tickets are $10 online, $15 at the door. If you've never been to the UPCA, it is a beautifully restored movie palace (previously on IRL). [more inside]
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?
I'm in the city and have a four-day weekend open May 5 through 8. yeahlikethat and netaustin are my hosts for various parts of this trip, and I'd love to meet anyone who's game! Work is near the Flatiron, but I'll be staying in Astoria most of the time I'm here. Proposal: Meeting at Haymaker in Chelsea on Saturday, May 6, in the afternoon or evening for drinks and/or a meal.

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]
January is here, so, ferret branca and I want to have dim sum with mefites again, at delicious Pacificana in Brooklyn. The more the merrier (and the smaller the final tab, usually), who's in? (previously) (moved to February so as not to coincide with Chinese New Year's Day) [more inside]
Barbeque, Bernie Williams, and metafilter: let's meet at the pedestrian plaza next to the Flatiron Building opposite Madison Square Park at 2PM, and then head to the Big Apple Barbecue Festival. I'm not able to make it to this anymore, but if anyone ends up going, have fun! [more inside]
Interested in good conversation? Exploring ideas? Reading the odd article to jumpstart a thoughtful exchange? Then join us for the next Salon—now in Brooklyn—on Wednesday, March 16, 2016. [more inside]
It's the time of year again for some happy birthday dim sum for me and ferret branca at Pacificana in Brooklyn, who's in? (previously) - UPDATE, rescheduled to Sunday the 31st due to possible snowstorm.
A meetup in the memory of Terry Pratchett. It was great going through his obit thread the other day. Terry's books influenced me a lot and helped me think about so many things in so many new ways. And I think, it would be a good idea to get together to give Terry a hearty, joyous send off. We could all come together, assume names from list of characters from his writings, may be even dress like some of them and discuss, drink and celebrate life, his and our own. [more inside]
It's been a while. My fiancee and I will be in New York City the evenings of Wednesday, 29 October through Saturday, 1 November. We would love to see the awesome New York MeFites! I'm thinking Revival would be a good place to meet on 8 p.m. on Saturday, 1 November.
Let's get dim sum at Pacificana on Sunday, October 12th. [more inside]
South Slope has an absolute gem of a little cocktail bar in Quarter. Also, Metafilter's Own™ davidjmcgee will be tending the bar Thursday night, so let's all go and tip well.
Hi Mefi! I will be in New York at the beginning of June, staying in Chelsea, anyone fancy a meetup after work/early evening Monday 9th June? I have literally no idea for venues so suggestions are very welcome!
Mefites of New York's Capital District, Adirondacks, Hudson Valley, as well as Vermont, Western Mass, Western Connecticut, &c., let's meet up! [more inside]
Sorry about that. Bar is still good.
Jenesta and I will be in Manhattan on Friday, November 1, and we'll have a few free hours in the evening. Want to get together for a few drinks?

Have we not had an NYC dim sum meetup since February 2012?! This shall not stand. Chinatown's The Golden Unicorn has been conducive to good meetups before, but, would people like to try Pacificana in Brooklyn's Chinatown for a change? I went there once with family and thought the dim sum was more varied than Golden Unicorn's, but the wait time for a table can be long. -- EDIT - Manhattan wins this round, for Saturday 11/9 at 11am.
My husband is going to be doing on-site maintenance for his former employer and is bringing me along! [more inside]

I'll be in Brooklyn on the week beginning 22 July and I wonder if any of you fine folks would care for a meet-up over a drink or two? ... Now confirmed for Friday 26 July at Keg & Lantern, 97 Nassau Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222 at 7pm but you can come at 8 or whatever. Also confirmed!: this meetup is officially named Colin. [more inside]
We're sorry, New York. We love you but we just can't live with you. [more inside]
Last year we walked the length of Broadway in Manhattan. Let's do it again, this time slightly more slowly and possibly with a picnic in Central Park. We will meet on the northeast side of the Broadway Bridge at 225th St at 9am on stop for a picnic lunch in Central Park (location to be determined), and finish at The Battery. [more inside]
After the success of the Fieri meetup, plus the middling quality of its food, there has been talk of a Fieri-themed potluck, in which we out-Fieri the Fieri. For this, newpotato has graciously suggested that we might use her bar, Rivington 151. [more inside]
Inaugural upper Manhattan meetup. At a beer garden (Bier International)...how bad could it be? We don't even have to talk. We can just drink. [more inside]
Anybody else having a dim sum craving? [more inside]
The Sing-Along series at the 92nd Street Y Tribeca continues, with a showing of Jim Henson's Labyrinth on 10/28, hosted by MeFi's own Help, I can't stop talking!. Tickets are $13 and include one beer, who's up for it?
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?
The plan: walk the length of Broadway from 225th St to the Battery on Saturday, October 8th. This is a 13.7 mile walk along one of the oldest streets in the US. [more inside]
After you go to the meetup in Crown Heights, head over to our new place in Kensington for a potluck dinner. My boyfriend, (The Rt Hon.) MP will be making some delicious vegan chili, and we welcome other vegan dishes (homemade or storebought), or (of course) beer. [more inside]
Feeling down? Your Wednesday plans not shaping up as you'd like? Then come have dinner with me, my boyfriend, (The Rt Hon.) MP and some awesome non-mefites. Bring a (vegan) dish, or a beverage, and yourself. We're taking care of a few dishes ourselves, so if you can't think of a vegan dish to bring, don't sweat it and just bring drinks. [more inside]
Do you want to walk the length of Broadway in Manhattan? Let's walk from 225th to the Battery. [more inside]
Anyone interested in seeing the Will Eisner New York exhibition at MoCCA? After some discussion, I figured Saturday, April 16 might be an auspicious date. I've been to the space before, and though the place isn't huge, this one looks fun. It's $5. Could do lunch before in Chinatown/SoHo also or just meet up at museum at 2:30.
I'm leaving for Atlanta on the weekend of March 12th. But before I go, I'd like to meet up with some of my favorite people at one of my favorite bars in New York! [more inside]
Bowling! It will be fun, no need to be any good at bowling (I'm useless, so you will probably be better than me). Let me know if you're in, so I have an idea of numbers. After bowling there will no doubt be food and drink somewhere nearby. (The map is not entirely accurate, but putting in the correct address somehow screws up Google Maps and brings up a location on the East River.)
OK, stupidly late call for this but if anyone can do it, the NY Mefi people can. I'm over from the UK to check out my friend's new bar that looks like it is right up your average (& not so average) NYMeFite's street. A beer & spirits menu to die for and a rock-centric music playlist. This could be jonmc's spiritual home... [more inside]
Orphan Thanksgiving, and I'm not the one organizing; see near the end of the thread for details. [more inside]
The meetup sidebar has been exploding all over the place, but it's basically dried up here in NYC. We missed the entire month of September. This must be rectified. I propose we meet up at a bar somewhere on the weekend of Oct. 15-17. Update: we will be having said meetup at Revival on Saturday, Oct. 16 at 8pm.
7pm Friday 3rd September Bushwick Country Club, 618 Grand Street, New York, NY 11211. Nearest subway Metropolitan Avenue-Lorimer St, G. Third continent meetup opportunity! Show me how it's done, New York! I will be alone in New York for Labor Day Weekend. I thought it would be good to have a meetup. It will be my first Metafilter meetup in the USA. I have previously been to meetups in the UK and Australia. Sorry for the short notice. [more inside]
Come hang out and enjoy some Korean bar/drinking food and alcoholic beverages.
