New York, New York!

Wed May 4 at 7:30 PM, Four Faced Liar, 165 West 4th Street
165 W 4th St, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
My fiance and I are coming to NYC from the 2nd to 5th of May and I was wondering if anyone is around for a meetup?
We land on the 2nd from Australia, so after the 24+ hours in transit, I think that day is out, but the Wednesday and Thursday are both free at this stage. I was thinking that The Four Faced Liar could be a good venue - I've never been to the States before, but my American boy pretty much lived in that pub while he was working in NYC. Anyone in, and if so, which date works better for you?

I applaud your choice of west side venue, as this is convenient to me.

Thursday's probably better for me, if only because it means I'll be falling asleep at my desk on a Friday (which is probably more acceptable).

Also: YAY!!!

I can make either night and damned straight I will. Wednesday is slightly better for me, but I suspect I will be in the minority there.

Would it be possible to pick another venue? I have issues with one of the bartenders at FFL. Does BF like Milady's?

If the script gets done and the creek don't rise.

Looks like fun to me! Not sure if I can make it out on a "school night", but I will try :D

I think I could do the Wednesday or Thursday. I haven't been to a meetup in a while, and am now considerably less shy about revealing myself as sweetkid.

Either night works for me. Since I never get out, I have no objections to any specific bars. Like eideteker, I am also appreciative of West Side locations.

I'll be there.

Thursday, please.
posted by Obscure Reference at 1:57 AM on April 20, 2011

I can try for either night, and would love to meet with you. And considering that FFL's one of your future husband's favorite bars, then I'm okay with meeting there. I also like the West Side choice of locations, too!

Excellent!! The Thursday looks best at this stage for most people, and since The Chef has organised to meet a couple of friends at FFL already, I think we should probably just lock it in, if that's ok!

What time? After dinner would work best for me, I think... The Chef is trying to fit as many of his friends' restaurants in as possible. I can make it earlier if need be, though!

I'm in either night!

Thursday is my Friday so after dinner is fine with me. I'm excited to try FFL, I haven't hung in the Village in a while and need to explore new dens of inequity.

after dinner is perfect because then I can put my kid to bed. /oldandboringparent

FFL sounds fun to me!

7:30, 8 p.m., maybe? Whichever you pick, just be sure to confirm the meetup so it'll pop onto the sidebar!

Yeah, pick a day so I can say I'm coming to see gaspode and then never actually show.

miss-lapin, Thursday is my Friday too and your typo is the best I've seen all month

Dag nab it, this what happens when I get a head cold. (grumble....sneeze.....grumble....)

You won't get over it in two weeks, miss-lapin?

I believe she's referring to her typo, "inequity" (unfairness), which should have been "iniquity" (decadence).
posted by John Cohen at 2:49 PM on April 21, 2011 [1 favorite]

you don't need to explain the typo :) It just didn't occur to me that she would grumble about such an awesome one.
posted by gaspode at 2:59 PM on April 21, 2011

I'm going to point out that 5/5 is Cinco de Mayo. Can I assume that FFL is not the kind of place where I'm going to be reminded of that?
posted by sciencegeek at 3:38 PM on April 21, 2011

Ehn I'm sick and therefore cranky about everything...including my awesome typos. (Where's the freakin' Theraflu?)

Mama might come out of retirement to stop by!

GAH was just reminded that I have a prior commitment. I shall miss you all. Have an extra drink for me.
posted by miss-lapin at 10:33 AM on April 25, 2011

This is still at the Four Faced Liar, correct?
posted by whimsicalnymph at 8:43 AM on April 26, 2011

AFAIK, yep

Hmm, we'll see how this goes with my end-of-semester school work. I would like to make an appearance.

Oh god. Oh God. Oh God.

I just looked again at the plane tickets... our flight to North Carolina leaves at 9:45 on Thursday.

Can we move the time forward by several hours or change the day?

posted by jonathanstrange at 4:00 AM on April 29, 2011

I have no problem with a switch to Wednesday.

Much earlier on Thursday would be difficult, unless everyone is okay with me arriving covered in mud and smelling delicious. (I do try to avoid riding the subway like that).
posted by sciencegeek at 5:11 AM on April 29, 2011

I too have no problem with Wednesday.
posted by gaspode at 8:48 AM on April 29, 2011

If it's Wednesday, I can actually stay out later, since I'm off the following day. I'm not Mexican or anything, I just have a doctor's appointment. In Mexico. *tries to look not at all shifty*

I will try to wander by on my way home.

Complications involving a pond have arisen. I may or may not be able to attend.

I am officially in now and am bringing the bf if he can get out of work!

We're here! safe and sound. Can't wait to meet you all tonight!

Alas, I cannot make it! Hope you enjoy....sorry today's weather is so lousy!

My friend's band is playing around the corner at 9. I hope to stop by before or after.

shoot just noticed the switch. Can't make today -- catch you at the next one.

I thought this was tommorrow. Well, drop by the store and say hi or something.

I was all ready to go, and then it turns out it was yesterday.
