Yes! I'm definitely down. I just got here in August too, so I really don't know that much about Hong Kong either. I've been spending a lot of my free time hiking around New Territories, going kayaking off Sai Kung, and spending time at the gym. Don't know of any decent watering holes though :(

We need some locals to show us around! *summons locals*

Not quite a local, but in these circumstances maybe I'll do.

I can set up something, but from what I gather the HK MeFi community isn't very active. I know quite a few restaurants, lounges, bars, nightclubs, etc. in the city. What kind of evening are you guys expecting?

1. Island-side or Kowloon-side? No preference? If there's no preference I'll probably do Island-side, I'm a little more familiar with HK than I am with Kowloon.
2. Start off with a group dinner? Do you guys want more of a lounge / pub place where we can sit and chat? A high-energy club type place where things will more focused on dancing?
3. Looking to stay under a particular price for the evening?

Of course, if there's anything else relevant (dietary restrictions, etc.) then let me know that too. Might be better to message me as opposed to replying here, I'm not sure I'll remember to check this post regularly for updates.

Dinner sounds good! Tuesdays are best for me. What kind of food do you guys like?
posted by onegoodthing at 11:48 PM on October 23, 2012

I like everything, onegoodthing. However, just found out I'll be out of town on the 11-13th and 25-27th. Perhaps somewhere where lingering over a beer isn't too dissuaded - it would be silly to be rushed out the door!

I'm good with Tuesdays and spicy food (or anything else for that matter). Given the constraints, it looks like either November 6th or 20th? Right now I'm free both of those evenings.
posted by C^3 at 7:08 PM on October 24, 2012

The 6th and the 20th both work for me too! I'm totally down with spicy and beer!
posted by astapasta24 at 9:14 AM on October 25, 2012

Since everyone seems to be okay with Nov 6th, let's tentatively mark that down as the date. We'll probably have more momentum with this date since Nov 20th is still quite far away. Dinner at 7:30pm on Nov 6th, at a place that's to be determined? Possibly involving spicy food and beer?
posted by C^3 at 3:00 AM on October 26, 2012

Nov 6th is good for me, 7:30 is excellent. Spicy food + beer sounds good as well!

Hey, I'm in HK for the next two weeks, so I'm in. I'll throw out Bowrington Rd dai pai dong in Wanchai as a suggestion; the beers are cheap and the spice-salted fried squid is zesty. Should be no problem to get a table outside on a Tuesday night. 'Course ain't no thing to find a meal in HK, so I'm good for anything.

OK folks, a bit of behind the scenes e-mailing has resulted in a reservation at Jo Jo's, a halal Indian restaurant, in Wan Chai for 7:30pm on Tuesday, the 6th of November. Thanks to everyone for organizing the behind-the-scenes-ing! :)

Jo Jo's is here:

2/F David House, 37-39 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai

Milquetoast, you are most welcome! Please join us!

I'll be arriving in Hong Kong on Nov. 5... will come if I'm not totally zonked from trans-pacific flight still, and can find my way:)

Yay! Do join us eviemath if you can. :D
posted by mdonley at 8:18 AM on November 4, 2012

For those of you that would still like to join us, please MeMail me and I will pass along my mobile number in case you are interested in possibly meeting up afterwards or have trouble finding the restaurant!

Hey everyone,

It appears that Jo Jo's is under renovation this week so I made the reservation at the other place we were considering, Tandoor in Central.

Same time and date (7:30 Nov 6th), only now at Tandoor, 1 Lyndhurst Terrace instead of Jo Jo's.

Open Rice page is here, for anyone interested.

C^3, I'll change the info here. Thank you so much for organizing the reservation. :)
posted by mdonley at 7:43 AM on November 5, 2012

Done! Attendees, the map is current if you're on the page now. Central MTR is marginally closer than Sheung Wan if you take the D exits. :)
posted by mdonley at 7:49 AM on November 5, 2012

What. I just left HK!

Have fun y'all, something came up at the last minute.
posted by milquetoast at 9:37 PM on November 5, 2012

How will I recognize everyone when I get there?
posted by eviemath at 12:18 AM on November 6, 2012

That's a good question, this is the first time we're all meeting each other so I don't know how we'll recognize each other. Ask for the table reserved for 6 under my name, or look for the Asian guy in a pink tie with flowers on it and a pin stripe vest?
posted by C^3 at 12:33 AM on November 6, 2012

Aw man, I'm going to be underdressed!
posted by eviemath at 12:34 AM on November 6, 2012

You won't be underdressed. I'll also wear pink to highlight our table. Think pink!
posted by mdonley at 1:31 AM on November 6, 2012

That was super-fun, everyone! Thanks!
