Fri July 18 at 6:30 PM, Metropolitan Museum of Art
1000 5th Avenue, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Let's have a meetup in a more refined setting than normal and meetup at the Metropolitan Museum's rooftop garden bar which currently has an art installation by Dan Graham on it.
The roof bar has a fantastic view of central park and the museum is open until 9 on Friday nights. I'm going to suggest 7:30 for the bar which gives us time to view the installation and have a drink before closing.

This sounds wonderful! Thank you for suggesting it.

This is excellent, though I've got a show at 9:30 that night. I hate to feel like I'm always doing the disappearing act at meetups.

(It's not you, it's me. It's so very me.)

I was really looking forward to this one, but I don't think the stars are in my favor - had to drop my laptop off for repairs on Tuesday and it's supposed to be ready for pickup on Friday, and it's kinda heavy for lugging around with me all meetup.

My stars have re-aligned, TekServe just called to say my computer is ready for pick-up now, yay! I get out of work at 3 on Fridays, so, I would be up for some pre-drinks museum wandering if anyone else is.

If I am reading the Met's website correctly, the bar closes at 8:15. Perhaps we should plan to meet a little earlier than 7:30, if possible?

Ok i'm changing it to 6:30 but of course people are welcome to come up until closing. I'm putting my cell number in my profile in case anyway needs to find the group.

Oh Yeah! Ill be there at about 5:15 if you want to meet early I was planning on seeing some of the museum beforehand.

Has anyone tried to enter the Met without paying? How awkward was it?

I always just give them a dollar, I believe you have to give them at least penny. It's usually fine and only marginally awkward.

Ah! I thought I'd make it but got stuck with some silly molecules. Hope you have fun!
