Sat May 26 at 3:00 PM, Zombie Hut
273 Smith St, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
I am having the Brooklyn meetup on SATURDAY! WHY? Because there will be someone FAMOUS HERE (he is a famous monster).

Jersey people cannot start at 3 AM. The financially deprived mercy of NJTransit prevents us from being wild.

Aside from that, the entire day is mine. Stumped as to venue, but I hate crowded bars.

I like an early evening meetup- 6:30 or 7ish. Time to sit in the bar for awhile and then go off to get food. I, too, am stumped on venues, though.

wait when are we doing this? is this the brooklyn one?

You know where I went that'd be good for an early afternoon meetup is the Greenwich Village Country Club. Lots of lounge space, food & drink, mini-golf for the so-inclined. I went on a Saturday afternoon a few months ago and it was empty.

I went there for my office party last Christmas.

Assuming it's staying in the same general vicinity, I went to 61 Local not to long ago, and it wasn't that crowded. I also find Freddy's to be not too crowded on the weekend (but that's not super convenient to a lot of people).

Or maybe Zombie Hut for an afternoon? It gets busy at night, but they have a big outdoor space, which might be nice for the daytime.

It is the Brooklyn one but we are doing it on Saturday. I would do two but there is a limit to the amount of time my partner is willing to parent alone per week while I go out drinking with my internet friends.

That appears to be a gay-ish bathhouse. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Maybe next meetup?

Thanks for the suggestYou know where I went that'd be good for an early afternoon meetup is the Greenwich Village Country Club. ions, Ragged Richard!

I am going to look at a $700 apt but when I get back I will probably pick something and finalize so get your suggestions in NOW NOW NOW

Ha ha what did my computer do? Oh well. That is just part of the WACKY EXCITEMENT!

Haaa, wrong link. And it's not a gay bathhouse, it's a fabulous spa with a Russian cafe!

THIS is the place I meant.

Wait, it's so not. I mean we had our office party there. I mean I'd love to have an office party in a gayish bath house. But yeah Zombie Hut.

yeah it's above Lucky Strike if that's what the NYU hipster bowling place is called.

oh I have wanted to check this out.
posted by sweetkid at 4:37 PM on May 21, 2012


I've passed 61 Local sometimes myself and have wanted to go in.

The country club type place looks a little expensive. Would we need to book a party?

Zombie Hut could work.
posted by bookwibble at 4:47 PM on May 21, 2012


I'm thinking Zombie Hut at 3pm. Register your firm and sensible objections in the next ten minutes or forever hold your peace.

FAMOUS MONSTER is a real monster? I wish I could come.

Real and monstrous as anything!

Yes, he is a real monster, he has to type with special claw adapters or something like that. We'll figure it out at the meetup.

So sorry I'm going to be out of town and will miss it! Have fun!

I know, I know, the proper term is "homoflexible"

So this meetup is weirdly monster themed. I'm coming as a vampire, the hot kind that is really old but still understands touchscreens.

Monsters? bathhouses? Homoflexible? Touchscreens...hotness..vampires????

Are you going to be a sparkly vampire or a non-sparkly vampire? THIS IS IMPORTANT.

MY TRUE SPARKLE NATURE IS ONLY COMPREHENSIBLE BY PSYCHICS AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS!!

everyone's all about elizardbits - she better come.

How long would this last, theoretically? I've heard Zombie Hut does get crowded later, and I may have stuff to do later as well.

I know meetups generally vary in terms of length, but the early time for this is kind of throwing me off.
posted by bookwibble at 7:54 AM on May 24, 2012


You can leave whenever, although we will be sad to see you go! I will be there until at least 5:30 in case anyone wants to join late.

The Wednesday meetups have gone as late as 1am (!)

you can leave if you must, bookwibble, but few people can "do stuff later" after time at the Zombie Hut.
posted by sweetkid at 9:35 AM on May 24, 2012


Ali and I will be there for a bit.
posted by vrakatar at 7:15 PM on May 24, 2012


Uh oh

That sounds extremely ominous
posted by the young rope-rider at 5:55 AM on May 25, 2012


You guys probably don't recognize me because I don't post here a ton, but I'm going to be in the area this weekend so I might be able to stop by.

We would love to have you!

Hmm. Suspicious...
posted by the young rope-rider at 12:45 PM on May 25, 2012


I and a friend can be there eventually. (I hope y'all stick around for a couple hours!)
posted by mlle valentine at 10:31 PM on May 25, 2012


We will stick around for a couple of hours. We tend to be a bit tied to the original venue once the giant flaming drinks start coming from the bar.

These weekly meetups, they are otherwise posted on IRL, or are a little more off-site? Can't make this one, but am heading in y'alls direction in the not too distant future.
posted by Iteki at 2:42 AM on May 26, 2012


They're on IRL. They're usually on Wednesdays though we can make an exception for travelling wanderers. Or wandering travellers.

if hooray and oh yeah! both come I will be extremely chuffed. EXTREMELY
posted by the young rope-rider at 8:49 AM on May 26, 2012


Ha! I'll be there, last load of laundry is in the dryer now.
posted by oh yeah! at 9:19 AM on May 26, 2012


I'm looking at the weather radar, and it looks like a pretty nasty thunderstorm will be arriving in an hour or two.

Ok thanks 1970s antihero! We have plenty of indoor room here! :) hope you come! :)
posted by the young rope-rider at 12:05 PM on May 26, 2012


Wow this is great! :D
posted by the young rope-rider at 12:34 PM on May 26, 2012


Updates, please. Is it still great? Did Vrak/Ali show up and bite anyone? Have the Zombies been unleashed? How flaming are the drinks? I would come, but meeting an old friend I haven't seen while for boozin' in the northerner geotypographic-climes of the Crooklyn @ 7 PM. Zombie Hut is a good place to make out after midnight. Is anyone making out yet?? TELL ME, NOW!
posted by Skygazer at 1:26 PM on May 26, 2012


Look just come no vrak bites yet bring your friend ! Skygazer! Meet me! Ok!

Still GREAT

Wasn’t planning on taking pictures, but when people started doing each others’ eye makeup and nails, I had to pull out my camera.
