Yay, MeFi Dim Sum! I'd prefer the 19th, but am open for either day. If we need to go for a bad weather day, I'm only available on the 27th. Either place sounds good! Thanks for bringing this loveliness back!

I put myself down as a 'maybe' because I'm free the 19th, but not the 20th. Both places look really good though.

I feel like we got seated faster at Bamboo Garden than at Pacificana the last time (and maybe was less of a schlep from the subway?), so, I'm leaning towards that one.

I'd like to come - it's been way too long since I've been to Meetup with your wonderful people! I'll have to play by ear though. Thank you for organizing Oh Yeah and early happy birthday!

Let's have plan A be Bamboo Garden on the 19th then?

Ok, edited to confirm for the 19th. :-)

Ah, the 19th doesn't work for me. My next days off are the 21st-22nd (Monday-Tuesday), and then Sunday the 27th. So if the weather's bad, I guess you can expect me.

Well, looks like the current forecast is for rain on Friday 1/18 turning into snow Saturday & Sunday, so unless the storm fizzles out in the midwest, we'll probably need to bump the dim sum meetup out to 1/26 or 1/27.

If it’s on the 27th, I might be able to go!

We can certainly move it but the forecast I'm seeing doesn't show any snow til after 4 on the 19th.
posted by ferret branca at 6:48 AM on January 16

The forecast I use is saying heavy, heavy rain all day Sunday.

It does seem like Saturday might be ok, but I’m nervous after the last snowstormaggedon under-forecast transit clusterfuck. Let’s see what the predictions are tomorrow.

Saturday should be fine, Brooklyn seems to be in line for a mix of rain and snow more than anything else.

See folks there!

Ok, the forecast for Saturday the 19th does seem safe, so I won't reschedule. (But if anyone who could only make it for the 27th wants to make a new IRL post for a 1/27 'you can never have too much dim sum in January' meetup, please go ahead, I'd be a definite Yes.)
posted by oh yeah! at 5:39 AM on January 17

Yeah, the more dim sum the merrier! It is possible the 27th would be better for my +1 as well.

I might be in NYC on the 19th... (just saw this MeFi meetup, coincidentally). Is this still happening on the 19th? I kinda don't know any of you NY MeFites though... :pp

Yes, we’re still on for this Saturday, aielen, you should absolutely come. Just keep an eye on the thread and update if you’re on the way so we know to wait for you/save you a seat before you end up in a dead zone. The bill for dim sum usually works out to under $20 per person, so, bring some small bills.

Not going to make it on the 19th, but I'd be good for the 27th if a reschedule happens.

Starting the drive to Brooklyn now. :-)
posted by oh yeah! at 7:00 AM on January 19

Ok, 3 of us are here in the lobby.
posted by oh yeah! at 7:50 AM on January 19

I’m a few minutes behind, on my way now, arrive in 15.
posted by The Pluto Gangsta at 8:05 AM on January 19

Ok, we’re seated- table for 6, right in front of the restaurant
