Thu June 29 at 7:15 PM, Clandestino
35 Canal St, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm interested in planning a meet up where people can chit chat and get to know each other. I've never been to a meet up so I don't really know how these things go. I would say we could go to a chill bar as long as they have non alcoholic drinks. If anyone has other ideas, those would be great too. Proposed time: early evening, in a week or so. Does anyone have preferences for time and day?

What part of the city did you have in mind?

I'd say that chatting and getting to know each other is pretty much how meetups usually go! No experience required. Hope to be able to attend. Early-ish (6:30-7?) on a weekday is usually best for me.

I was thinking lower east or west side.

I could do LES on a weekday after 6, preferably a Tuesday or Thursday.

If we're doing something on Thursday through Saturday, I'm wide open. I'd like to go if I can make time.

ooooooh a Manhattan meetup. I'm out of town constantly so can't commit, but I'll be watching the thread.

Anyone have bar recommendations?

I'm moving from Brooklyn to Manhattan this weekend, so early to mid evening on a weekday is probably best, although the coming week will most likely be unpacking and more unpacking.

We recently had a nice meetup at Clandestino, on Canal St (thanks, 1970s Antihero!), if you'd like to go the tried and true route. I think it's a good choice since it's not very loud or divey, though I'm always happy to try new places if anyone has suggestions.

How does Clandestino, Thursday the 29th at 7pm sound for everyone?

Works for me!
posted by revertTS at 5:41 AM on June 24, 2017


I think it works but I left my schedule at work like an idiot, oops.
posted by ferret branca at 8:23 AM on June 24, 2017


Oh yeah, as you may've gathered since you chose 7 as your starting time, Clandestino does not open til then so people should not show up early!
posted by ferret branca at 8:24 AM on June 24, 2017


My mistake. 7:15 then.
posted by starlybri at 4:00 AM on June 25, 2017


I changed the start time to 7:15 in case they don't open on time.

Like always, stop by the Strand and say hi!

Sounds great, see you all there. (I didn't mean you made a mistake, btw, starlybri, sorry if it sounded that way! I just want to make sure that people don't show up even before the start time, which I know I am guilty of on occasion as an overly punctual person. :) )

Been a while since I made it to a Clandestino meetup, but if I do make it I will most likely be early and in search of food. Anyone have a recommendation? (The website is still active for El Aripo Cafe, but the Yelp page says it's closed)

Sounds great!

Aw man, I have to be on Staten Island until 9pm. Sorry I can't make this!
posted by sockermom at 5:44 AM on June 26, 2017


Shoot, I won't be able to make it after all - got a furniture delivery yesterday, but wasn't able to schedule the giveaway of the old sofa in the same day, gotta get home tonight for it.

I just sprained my ankle pretty badly, so unless a miracle happens I won't be able to come. I'm so sorry, I was really looking forward to meeting you all! But have fun without me, I'll try to make another meetup before the end of July if someone else doesn't. Tell me how it goes!

Oh no, hope you feel better soon, starlybri!

Thanks!

Aw man, feel better!!

wait this is today? maybe I can pop over? MAYBE I WILL ADVENTURE DOWN!

although I don't think I'll be out of work until 7pm....
posted by larthegreat at 1:35 PM on June 29, 2017


I'm heading down that direction if anyone is getting food nearby.
posted by limeonaire at 3:01 PM on June 29, 2017


I'm afraid I am totally wiped out from work (a site visit far away) so won't be able to attend. I would go to a future meetup though!
posted by ferret branca at 3:15 PM on June 29, 2017


I'm on the subway. Slow going
posted by ikea_femme at 5:11 PM on June 29, 2017


Good times, everyone! Thanks for coming out!
