Weekly Brooklyn Meetup: Hellish Frozen Northlands Edition
posted April 11, 2013 7:22 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed April 24 at 7:00 PM, The Keg and Lantern
95 Nassau Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
For the week of April 24th, we shall meet at the Keg and Lantern, in Greenpoint.
Good food if that's what you like, and many great great beers on tap. Plus a very nice little backyard! It is right next to the Nassau stop on the G, and within walking distance of the Bedford stop on the L. (Though strictly speaking, it's within walking distance of every stop on every train, as long as you've got the time and the moxie.)

Since this will be way up in the northern reaches of Brooklyn, I encourage all attendees to bring spears, tridents, rapiers, and Lochaber Axes, as the White Walkers will probably attack.

Fuck Yeah Northern Brooklyn!

(Should there be a comma in there?)

Yayyyy a meetup by me! And since I'm obligated to support all things Greenpoint... looks like I'm coming to my very first mefi meetup. How will I find you guys?

I plan to bring spears, tridents, and textbooks after getting through my evening class.

How will I find you guys?

Look for a group of just stunningly gorgeous people. Like, off-the-charts attractive.

Also, I will post something in-thread about what I'm wearing on the day of the meetup. But I plan to be sitting outside, so pretty much anyone who wanders outside with a "where is everyone?" look on their face will result in me waving frantically and calling, "Metafilter! Are you metafilter person! Hello! Internet person hello!"

Yes. This I will do. I like Greenpoint. and it really is a short walk from the L.

Just wear a kilt again, Greg.

There's like a 50% chance I'm wearing a kilt at pretty much any nice-weather non-work event I'm at, so it is entirely possible!

This sounds AMAZING. However, I will be listening to Jennifer Egan read that night! Keep'm coming and I'll show up again.

So it looks like it'll be a high of 68 degrees, which means YAY OUTSIDE WEATHER

But it might also rain which means BOO INSIDE WEATHER

BUT

Keg and Lantern has a weird pseudo-tent cover for the entire backyard area

which means we are going to be getting just the freshest air outside whilst raindrops pitterpatter above us.

Pretty much what whimsicalnymph said, but I'll be at this instead of the Jennifer Egan thing, although I could've been there if I knew about it.

FYI, Keg and Lantern has excellent bar food. Sad I can't come to the first (successful) Greenpoint meetup in a while.

UPDATE: I will aim to be there by 7:00, though it may be closer to 7:10 since I need to swing by my house first. I will be wearing a black shirt and olive-green kilt and will be outside with a beer.

I will be there around 7, wearing a long blue and white dress and looking nervous.

I'm here in a blue dress shirt, the guy with long hair.

We're at a table in the back now (and now they've turned on the overhead heat lamps, yay!)

Hope to be there by 9. If y'all leave before then, post in the thread?
posted by mlle valentine at 4:48 PM on April 24, 2013


I might be dropping by in about 45 minutes. Or less. Or not dropping by. Definitely don't wait, but definitely don't leave without saying a thing about your leaving.
