Sun May 17 at 10:30 AM, Brooklyn Bridge
City Hall Park, Broadway, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Smorgasburg is back for the season. Anyone interested in checking it out again after a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge?
(last year's thread, gothamist 2015 opening day review.) So, same as last year, let's congregate at City Hall Park, by the subway entrances, then take the stroll.

I'd love to come, but I can't make that date because I'm doing the Five Boro Bike Tour that day. Though the tour isn't going over the Brooklyn Bridge, it's supposed to go under it. So unless you like crowds and road closures I would pick a different day.

I'm busy or not around the weekends of May 3-4 and May 23-24, and also maybe not May 30-31.

Ah, good to know. I assume May 10th is out since it's Mothers' Day, so how about May 17th?
posted by oh yeah! at 11:28 AM on April 13, 2015

Either of those dates works for me.

Ooh, this looks fun. Let me submit myself as a (very) tentative maybe.

Ohhh, I wish! I'm going to be out of town that weekend.

Sounds fun! I'll have to confirm my schedule, but I'm down for a maybe.

Well, this weekend's weather forecast seems to change every time I check my phone, but seems to be settling on some kind of storminess on Saturday and then on the warm side for Sunday. So, should be much like last time - lovely Bridge walk weather followed by some hot trudging around the food vendor booths. Should be good ice cream weather though.

I think I would like to join you guys for Smorgasburg but not the bridge (can't bring myself to go so near my office this weekend) so please keep the thread updated on your progress! Also, we should check out this Brooklyn Bridge Park art exhibit!

So, what's our actual head count at this point? And how do people feel about tomorrow's weather? I haven't seen any real rain here yet, but now they're saying scattered thunderstorms starting sometime today and continuing on through the morning. Wondering if we should bump this out to May 31st.
posted by oh yeah! at 7:51 AM on May 16, 2015

I'm happy to make a final decision tomorrow morning. Last I heard it was scattered storms Sunday afternoon. If it's not raining/storming, I may go to Smorgasburg anyway.
posted by wiskunde at 3:54 PM on May 16, 2015

For what it's worth, I can't do the 31st and would definitely go to the Smorgasburg portion tomorrow, since it seems like rain will happen only later in the day, but if y'all wind up rescheduling I don't mind.

Wow, sorry, that came out wrong. I'm happy to wait for us all to make a decision together. Also happy if people want to call it. So not in charge; sorry for the phrasing!
posted by wiskunde at 6:00 PM on May 16, 2015

Phrasing didn't bother me, if you are worried about that! And deciding tomorrow is fine by me.

I'm still in for the walk and Smorgasburg. Heading out in about 10-15 mins as the Q is a little funky this morning. I'll keep checking this thread.
posted by wiskunde at 6:10 AM on May 17, 2015

I am headed in as well.

I started my Sunday run later than I'd planned, so I probably won't make it until 10:45-11. Feel free to start the saunter without me, and I'll catch up to you when I get there.
posted by unannihilated at 6:23 AM on May 17, 2015

Ok, heading out to the PATH now.
posted by oh yeah! at 6:28 AM on May 17, 2015

I will see y'all at the park; keep me (and the thread) posted!
posted by ferret branca at 6:36 AM on May 17, 2015

I overslept this morning, so I will miss the walk, and meet you all at Smorgasburg.

(By "the park" I mean Smorg not City Hall Park, sorry if unclear!)
posted by ferret branca at 7:12 AM on May 17, 2015

At City Hall Park - On the benches just north of the Citibikes, subway entrances, and street performers.
posted by jilloftrades at 7:21 AM on May 17, 2015

I might be 5-10min late, but will be there asap.
posted by wiskunde at 7:23 AM on May 17, 2015

Ok, jilloftrades, wiskunde, and I are going to start walking the Bridge, see people on the other side.
posted by oh yeah! at 7:53 AM on May 17, 2015

Not so sure I'm going to make this at all. I set my Metro card down somewhere after I got in the door and now I can't find it.
posted by unannihilated at 7:55 AM on May 17, 2015

Off the bridge now, trying to find our way to the Borg pier
posted by oh yeah! at 8:30 AM on May 17, 2015

By Pier 2 and heading down.

Passing the carousel now.
posted by oh yeah! at 8:35 AM on May 17, 2015

Well, I admitted defeat and bought a single ride ticket. So mad. In any case, I'm walking to the park.
posted by unannihilated at 8:42 AM on May 17, 2015

Gotta head out. 'Twas delicious!
posted by ferret branca at 10:03 AM on May 17, 2015

Also taking off -nice walk & chow!
