Thu November 19 at 7:00 PM, Berg'n
899 Bergen St, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
me and the boyfriend are in town from the 13th to the 23rd of November. let's hang out at Berg'n on Thursday the 19th.
some stuff is still being planned as far as the trip goes, but:

- we're staying in brooklyn with friends;
- we're going to see Okkervil River on the 22nd at the Bowery Ballroom;
- if we get rush tickets for Hamilton or Fun Home we are definitely going to see those.

aside from that: we're open to suggestions (and if you aren't tired of recommending things to tourists, also recommendations.)

I'm flying in to see that Okkervil show, too! If your meetup happens while I'm in town -- 11/17 or 18 to 11/23 -- I'd be happy to join you.

Depending on the exact day I will try my best to make it!

Heeeraldo - are there any particular foods/activities you guys love or hate?
posted by oh yeah! at 10:55 AM on October 13, 2015

we're pretty easy; somewhere not too difficult to take a train to and with an interesting beer list would be ideal.

Berg'n maybe? They have a weekly board game night on Wednesdays but also a pretty chill place to hang out.

Berg'n sounds great.

Do we want board games, or should we do it on Thursday? There's a full week for people to decide, that way, and I feel like it's probably easier for people to come out for a bit versus having to move weekend plans around.

I've never been to Berg'n before - I think I'd prefer Thursday the 19th. (Easier to rationalize staying up late on a Thursday if there's only one more workday to get through. And, I'd worry that the place would be too full with the regular board-game-goers if we tried for Wednesday.)

berg'n it is! I've emailed about whether a reservation is needed, and I'll post if things change.

Aw I like Berg'n pretty well but will be at a concert then. Maybe I can stop by after. Enjoy!

(Also if any of y'all wanna play board games around then, or really any time, shoot me a memail. My SO has zillions.)

ah, we'd like to come but i doubt we can get a sitter

Hope your trip has been going well so far, heeeraldo + smasuch. Happy almost-meetup-day.

Among those who are definitely attending, is there any interest in moving this earlier, say to 7pm? The timing is awkwardly placed for a weeknight - a lot of time to kill after work but not really enough time to go home and come back, even for those of us who live in Brooklyn.

I'll be there at however long it takes to get there from Union Square after 6-ish, so, probably by 7pm.

Ok, made it - me & 1970s Antihero have the table in front of the bar, one row away from the food vendors.
