Sun June 15 at 2:00 PM, Zombie Hut
273 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm visiting NYC next weekend and would like to finally meet all you lovely folks. Is anyone up for a meetup in the afternoon/early evening of June 15th? Maybe somewhere outdoors- or patio-y to take advantage of the nice weather? I'm staying in Chelsea but am happy to travel wherever on the subway/transit system. Open to suggestions for time/venue! Zombie Hut at 2 PM on June 15th it is! Join us!

Some of us will be in Brooklyn Bridge Park by afternoon/early evening of June 15th, after walking across the bridge. If the bridge walk is too early for you, you could take the subway to Brooklyn and just do the Smorgasburg & park hang-out. Or maybe someone can suggest another location near the park so any walkers with the time & budget could join the Phire meetup?

Sounds nice!

There is always Zombie Hut which is not too far from Brooklyn Bridge Park and has a patio and tiki drinks on fire. Tons of other bars as well, I'm sure people will weigh in.

Craaaaaaap. My day is full on with kid stuff, birthday parties and so on. Might see if I can hand off the party stuff to husband and head to the meetup for a bit.

I'm going to be wildly radical and suggest a trip to the Chelsea Market? Anyway, I'm in.

Zombie Hut and Chelsea Market both sound like excellent options. Any other locals care to weigh in?

How does 2 PM-ish work for people?

Works for me!

Zombie Hut is great and they have a sweet patio.

Oh, actually, not a maybe. Confused, thought 15th was the Saturday. Will be at the Mets game. :(

Pretty sure we're fated to never meet again, gaspode.

Remember me to the Girl Scout cookies.

BOO Potomac and gaspode. I'll just have to come back again at some point.

I vouch for Phire. She's good people.

Since I haven't heard anything to the contrary I'm going to say 2 PM at Zombie Hut it is! Be there or be square etc.

Oh sweet, I'm visiting from Oz next weekend and staying in Bklyn, will try to make it.
I will bring clip-on koalas for everybody.
Not really

Wait. Wait, wait, wait. I just noticed a strange incongruity of the location and the guest list.

Sorry, Phire, but the focus of this meetup has changed from "Meet Phire" to "See The Whelk in Brooklyn."

Oh my god those clip-on koalas are amazing. Think of how much I could harass my cat by sticking them on her...!

I am changing my status to maybe. something work related just came up sooooo
posted by The Whelk at 3:10 PM on June 14, 2014


"Work-related," sure.

I will also be sad if clip-on koalas don't make an appearance. :-(

BOOOOOO. If you don't at least stop by, well, see if I ever read your Avengers novellas ever again!

just kidding I will totally still read them

That was fun. Nice to meet you, Phire!

That was a lot of fun - thanks to everyone who came out! It was great meeting everyone. The Zombie Hut was a great venue as well.
