Hey, I'm coming to Brooklyn on the weekend of June 5th to beat around and be a tourist for a bit. Anyone want to get drinks/dinner in the area? I heard the 4th Avenue Pub was good, but I don't know the area, so I'm open to other venues, and any time between Friday afternoon and Saturday night is fine by me. EDIT: Let's go to Mission Dolores! If people would prefer a different time, I'm definitely open to changing that until like a week before I come down.
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?"
Beers and conversation (but not too loud!) at our monthly Manhattan stop on the weekly-meetup tour.
Sorry for the late post! I hope to see y'all Thursday evening.

To quote 1970s Antihero: "Let's meet up and drink beers. Because we're adults and we can."
Edit: We have moved to Perdition, since the Three Monkeys was a madhouse. As suggested by hactar, we're going to try The Three Monkeys in Midtown. Start time this week is 7pm. And as far as I can tell from their website, there will be no terrible open mics.
Edit: We are decamping to one stop beer shop on Kingsland to avoid the open mic here at Boulevard. One more in my new neighborhood before I acquiesce and choose a Manhattan location for next week. I'm setting the starting time for this one at 7, since I'll be coming from work, but I can change it to 6:30pm if others want to start without me.
As discussed at the Keg & Lantern meetup: I'm resurrecting the weekly meetup. This time, it's on Wednesday.

Same old, same old. Bring your games, bring your food, bring your drinks. We start at 2pm. UPDATE: We will be ending at 8pm this time.
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.
