I could tell you, but I don't want to ruin the surprise.

I am coming!

What time? 7ish?
posted by whimsicalnymph at 9:40 AM on July 30, 2012


7ish. I'll probably get there at 7:20, and people will still be there for a good long while after that.
posted by the young rope-rider at 9:43 AM on July 30, 2012


I'll probably be early again, sitting in the back on my lonesome, writin' stuff on my laptop. Assuming I can make it.

(and will similarly be leaving early; suck it, haters—come to the upper Manhattan meetup if you want more QT with YT)
posted by Eideteker at 9:55 AM on July 30, 2012


I have officially placed this Meet-up on my Google Calendar.

Which raises my chances of making this to about...20, 30, 34, no, no, 37%.

This is huge, people. HUGE.


(I will know better tomorrow, if the Gods will be on my side...)

I do not actually believe that Skygazer exists
posted by the young rope-rider at 12:20 PM on July 30, 2012


Do too, exist...I'm right here.
posted by Skygazer at 3:18 PM on July 30, 2012


Yet there is no 'there' here.

I met Skygazer once. Several months ago. When I was drunk. So there you go.

Amateurs. I saw Skygazer drinking a pina colada down at Trader Vic's.

His hair was perfect.

Would you look at that list of yeses and maybes! This could be the biggest meetup in a while! We could start a company softball team with these kinds of numbers!

I call being the person who walks around selling lemonade! I CAN ROCK THAT, JUST GIVE ME A CHANCE, COACH!
posted by the young rope-rider at 8:22 AM on July 31, 2012


Can the place even accommodate that many people? (Assuming we have it inside-- it's calling for rain tomorrow, and I really hate their picnic benches.)
posted by bookwibble at 8:25 AM on July 31, 2012


WE'RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT
posted by Greg Nog at 8:47 AM on July 31, 2012


Yes, it can accommodate that many people! It is an awesome place! We can always have an inside group and an outside group! We are a brilliant and flexible people!
posted by the young rope-rider at 9:17 AM on July 31, 2012


Can't make it. I hate my life.
posted by Eideteker at 10:21 AM on July 31, 2012


I am sorry that you hate your life and that you can't make it.

I have a project I will be working on in Brooklyn tomorrow, so I think I will stop by!

YAY!

Eideteker! Heart breaker!
posted by whimsicalnymph at 2:22 PM on July 31, 2012


I'll see what I can do if I still have a job tomorrow.

If I don't, well, you'll either see lots more of me or lots less. =\

AHHHHHHH SKYGAZER'S COMING

But a more serious question: are there any dining establishments near the 4th Ave Pub? My memory from last time is hazy and the new Yelp app update is being weird.
posted by bookwibble at 7:10 AM on August 1, 2012 [1 favorite]


bookwibble, there's a deli across the street that makes sandwiches and has organic-y food. But yeah, not a whole lot of options.
posted by whimsicalnymph at 7:30 AM on August 1, 2012


(you can BYOFood to the pub)
posted by whimsicalnymph at 7:31 AM on August 1, 2012


I might be in the area lateish, so if you are all there past 10pm, I can plan on swinging by.
posted by larthegreat at 8:16 AM on August 1, 2012


Fair warning I will probably spend most of the evening weeping happily about Tina The Cat
posted by Greg Nog at 9:18 AM on August 1, 2012


Bookwibble, there's a decent pizza place across the street from the pub, Chinese takeout nearby (standard quality for fast food Chinese takeout), a fried chicken Halal place and another Halal deli/shop of some sort that I haven't tried yet.

I had a dream about a cat last night. It was on an old Victorian house getting swept away by a flood, but it was like a boat and the cat was the captain of the boat.

It was a nice cat.



Will be ready to discuss it more at meet-up!! Bring cat dream stories!!
posted by Skygazer at 9:46 AM on August 1, 2012


I'll see if I can make it.

Skygazer and I got kicked out of a metal bar once.

How late are people staying, BTW? If I show up at 9 or 10, will things still be jumping?
posted by defenestration at 10:10 AM on August 1, 2012


hells yes they will

"Skygazer and I got kicked out of a metal bar once."

As opposed to a wooden dowel?

Eideteker and I once got kicked out of The Whelk's apartment!!
posted by Skygazer at 10:23 AM on August 1, 2012


Dave (Defenestration), I will wait for you.

I will wait.


For you....


/wink


unless I get kicked out of the bar before you get there...

"Skygazer and I got kicked out of a metal bar once."

It's true.

That happened, yup.

OK, I'm coming. Skygazer sealed the deal. I'm leaving now, so I'll probably be there around 6:30. And I'm leaving at 8. I needs my sleep.

AREN'T YOU EXCITED??? >=[
posted by Eideteker at 1:40 PM on August 1, 2012


Aww...thx.
posted by Skygazer at 2:36 PM on August 1, 2012


Hurry up, I don't know how long we can hold all these indoor tables.
posted by Eideteker at 3:49 PM on August 1, 2012


I'll be there in like 30-40 minutes!
posted by Greg Nog at 4:03 PM on August 1, 2012


I am not even a real person!
posted by Potomac Avenue at 4:15 PM on August 1, 2012


Neither am I.

(ETA 8:15-8:30)
posted by Skygazer at 4:49 PM on August 1, 2012


Still at work, have a beer or two or three for me.

Fellow mefites: always a pleasure

Just got home! So good to see all'a'y'all!
posted by Greg Nog at 8:28 PM on August 1, 2012


I must've been drunker than I thought--I got on the wrong train! (only one stop)

A lovely evening, indeed.

Who is missing an umbrella?
posted by the young rope-rider at 9:17 PM on August 1, 2012


Hey!

That was good!
posted by Skygazer at 8:41 AM on August 2, 2012


I am glad I got to see Skygazer on my way to the subway. He is the only one I wanted to see!

Honestly, though, I hope I get to see all of you at another meetup (or multiple meetups) where I get a chance to talk to many more of you at length. I like getting to know people and their stories!

So much fun. Love you people.

The Metafilter NYC Group you were asking about! You don't need gmail to join.
posted by the young rope-rider at 1:44 PM on August 2, 2012


I have the umbrella. If you are a mefite and you ever want to see your umbrella again, email me!
