Upper Manhattan Meetup: The Sequel
posted March 31, 2014 7:01 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Thu April 17 at 6:30 PM, Harlem Public
3612 Broadway, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
The last uptown meetup was, what, 2 years ago? Who's in for the 2014 edition?
I've heard good things about Harlem Public. Other suggestions?

The week of April 14?

All righty! Harlem Public is the place. It's at 149th and Broadway.

I'm on school vacation that week so any day is good!

I tend to suck at actually attending these things, but I feel like I need to encourage anything that is in upper Manhattan, so maybe I'll get off my butt and show up.
(as long as this isn't after my bedtime)

This is also reminding me that I should plan another meet up in the gardens at Untermyer when the weather gets nice and the flowers are pretty.

Sciencegeek, I thought about me-mailing you the other day to ask if you thought we could have an Untermeyer cherry blossom picnic this year.

I second that idea!

Any day but Wednesday works for me.

ooh, cherry blossom picnic! that would be excellent. a bit difficult to predict blossom and weather matrices, but this could be done. it would likely be in about a month, i think. (totally cheating and using my flickr account to look for cherry blossom photos and i have one from the 9th of May).

I will do this in a couple of weeks. Someone remind me because it is the start of busy season in the garden and my brain is totally squishy.

Until then, upper Manhattan!

That's Passover week, so completely unpossible for me.

So Thursday the 17th at Harlem Public then?

oh man, that place is always mega-crowded (it's the only place the white people in the neighborhood feel safe once the Chipped Cup closes?). It's right down the street from me, so hopefully, I can at the very least swing by!

Eideteker, will it be super crowded at 6:30? If you think so, I am happy to entertain other ideas. Nothing down by me is really good for the drinks/conversation/dinner combo.

No, let's do it! We'll take the place over. =D

Will it be all right if I show up at 7:something? Not sure how table service-y it is. I would definitely like to come but may have an earlier commitment.
posted by mlle valentine at 6:24 AM on April 11, 2014

Sure thing, I'll try to find us a table that allows some flexibility for people's coming and going.

I'll also be arriving at 7 or later.

I'd love to go, but I'll be in New Mexico then.

So... despite the fact that this is essentially in my backyard, I have been drafted for a practice that night til 9:30... If people are still there after 10, you might see me!
posted by Eideteker at 6:20 PM on April 14, 2014

I'm in!!! Last minute!!!!!!!!!!!

I might get there closer to 7pm though.
posted by yaymukund at 9:26 AM on April 17, 2014

By which I mean I'm definitely coming (it's on my way home); I just have no idea if people will still be there. [also updated my Attending status]

the work has overflowed into the evening. so instead of hanging out with you guys, i'll be setting up a newsletter, updating the website and adding more things to the giant excel sheet in the sky.
posted by sciencegeek at 2:48 PM on April 17, 2014

Sorry you can't make it, sciencegeek. Mlis and I are revving up to get up there. It may be closer to 7 than 6:30. Eideteker, I can't say for certain if we'll still be there, but do drop by.

Heading to the train now, should be there for the 7-ish shift
posted by oh yeah! at 3:30 PM on April 17, 2014

We have our names in on a table. In the meantime we are seated outside, where we can actually hear each other.
posted by computech_apolloniajames at 3:58 PM on April 17, 2014

Waiting for the train. Eta 7:30.
posted by unannihilated at 4:07 PM on April 17, 2014

We are inside, we have a table, walk in and we are to the left, can't miss us.

I'm two stops away! Totally didn't realize this was upper manhattan... Duh!

See you all soon!
posted by yaymukund at 4:19 PM on April 17, 2014

Eide, meet-up has disbanded, see you next time!
posted by mlis at 6:32 PM on April 17, 2014

Good thing i checked the thread! Hope y'all enjoyed my 'hood; y'all come back now!
posted by Eideteker at 6:45 PM on April 17, 2014

So delicious!
posted by mlle valentine at 7:41 PM on April 17, 2014

Yes, this was wonderful. It was very nice seeing all of you again!
posted by yaymukund at 8:41 PM on April 17, 2014

Eideteker, I've posted an IRL for next weekend's King Kong screening at 175th & Broadway, so there's that possibility for another uptown convergence.
posted by oh yeah! at 6:12 AM on April 18, 2014

Sadly, it falls squarely in the middle of one of my many practices. =(

R.I.P. social life
