I'm strongly leaning towards Sophie's in alphabetical city, which no one recommended to me!

Otto's Shrunken Head has tiki drinks and isn't too far from the 1st Ave stop on the L.

wait wait wait, I'm interested... anything near the L train is excellent to me. What day?

and what sorts of drinks would you like?

(and if alphabet city/east village I would highly recommend Royale for super cheap delicious burgers and beers. I went recently and was re-educated about how excellent it is)

Arg, I'm going to miss two idfssn9 meetups? I'll be in Atlanta during the 4th Ave Pub meetup, flying out Thursday morning, so it's nothing but pre-trip errands and packing for the next two nights. Boo.

Date-wise I was thinking this Wednesday because that will be when I am flying in, but it could also be this Thursday without anyone being unduly harmed. I want to avoid the weekend because places get so crowded on weekend nights

I'm not sure how I feel about meeting up with a detective from the IFS.....

Thursday is better for me but I might be able to make Wednesday as well. Yay for meetups!

Thursday would work for me. I also have a half day at work on Friday and am totally willing to get started on the long weekend early somewhere in the city, if anyone else is free.

Thursday sounds good!

larthegreat would thursday work for you?

I am weirdly enough already having a tiki-themed situation later that weekend so I think I will give Otto's Shrunken Head a pass this time, but it is in my mental roster of places to go to!

Thursday just opened up for me so yes, I would like to hang out with the internet.
posted by larthegreat at 11:58 AM on September 1, 2015


YEAH Thursday is internet day!

sophie's isn't even in alphabet city

it's a big fraud bar. but we will go there and be like "what a fraud" and it will be ok.

if by big fraud bar, you mean a bar where a internet fraud might happen, then yes. you are correct.

I got the date wrong! Turns out it won't be terrible after all!

Thanks to ferret branca for figuring out my mistake! She is the best!
posted by internet fraud detective squad, station number 9 at 2:34 PM on September 2, 2015


I will be there! But I will be there slightly on the later side, around 7:45. I'm going to assume that you all will still be there and won't be one-and-done chumps when it comes to beer. Also, I may or may not have a guest, we'll see who is thirsty at the gym. ;)

ALSO ALSO if anyone wants to have dinner with me tonight at champs, vegan diner, let me know

I am also looking to get a drunkening on so that is also a thing

I will also be there around 7:45.
posted by ferret branca at 7:21 PM on September 2, 2015


I will be there earlish (aka at 6:30pm). My job has been mysteriously letting me leave work at humane times, and I'm sure as fuck taking advantage of that.

HURRAY INTERNET FRAUD PARTY.

Ah crud, I hate being a flake. But something came up (something good, at least!) and I can't make it tonight. But I will be there on Sunday at the 4th Ave Pub! Have fun tonight, everyone!
posted by Fuego at 7:26 AM on September 3, 2015


I will be there early-ish too, larthegreat! :)

Fuego, don't worry about it! See you Sunday!

Let me know if you wind up leaving before 7:45. I hope you don't though!
posted by ferret branca at 3:13 PM on September 3, 2015
