Thu May 22 at 7:00 PM, Cresent Lounge
32-05 Crescent Street, Astoria, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
We all talked about it last night, it's time to give Queens a chance. Crescent lounge is a great, chill place for a meetup, and it is two short blocks away from the Broadway St N stop. There are lots of couches, drinks are very cheap by NYC standards, and there are board games.
No popcorn though.

It's also, I've just discovered, a surprisingly doable walk from the Roosevelt Island tram.

OK, this is 5 min walk from my place. No excuses.

How late might y'all be there?

I'm going to have to put myself down as a maybe. I have something late Thursday afternoon, and if it runs late I can't make the trek.

zarq -- I will be showing up at 8ish or so and will be around for... a while? That's not helpful, right?
posted by gaspode at 7:02 AM on May 20, 2014

LOL. No, it's helpful. Thanks.

Right now I have no idea if I'll be able to come. Leaving it on "maybe." Will know for sure day-of.

I will be there. I will not be stuck where the trains and buses have all been canceled.

I'm going to be a big nerd and wear my mefi shirt, because I've never worn one to a meetup. Pretty sure I've met at least some of you more than once, but just in case...

Does anyone know if the water main break down on Houston will be interfering with the Manhattan-Queens leg of the N train? It flooded the basement of Katz Deli & nearby buildings, and caved in part of the road that's under construction.

There is nothing up on the mta site about it.

I'm on the N now, came from Canal St, no issues. We did run express but I think the train behind us was local.

Ack! Running late.

I'll be planning on leaving in about 20 minutes, assuming my husband ever gets home from work to take over child bedtime...

Sorry, madness in the lalochezia household. Another time!
