Sat August 27 at 9:00 PM, MAH ROOF
151 Rivington St, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
I did, in fact, promise that if I hit 1000 faves I'd have a party. So, I will be hosting a shindig on my roof, open to all, in honor of everybody getting favorites all the time forever.
This is happening Saturday, August 27th. So there. The address attached is totally wrong because I didn't want to put my home address on the internets. Therefore, memail me for my address if you want to come!

---

I live on the Lower East/SoHoish. I'll provide a negligible amount of wine and snax, but it'll be low-key BYOWhatever. I'm thinking not this weekend, but next. Maybe next Saturday, round 9? I will be kicking y'all out at midnight, due to noise. But we can keep party hardy-ing at nearby Marshall Stack.

Also, I really am going to see if I can't hook up the tinychat webcam so that everybody can come. Bring it, Idaho. You too, California.

We've been having a bit of trouble with leaving the dog alone (and she's never travelled anywhere yet, much less between boroughs), so the lady and I will play this one by ear.

Aw. I remember the "terrible 2s" of dogdom. But you HAVE to come. Sorry, you do.

Apparently our upstairs neighbor was able to tell me exactly when I left and got home last Friday night because there was interminable barking in between the two events.

Congrats, I probably won't be able to make it because I have two baby parties that weekend (!) but I will think good thoughts at you and your fellow revelers and I'm glad you're here on metafilter :)

Ah, this'll be the last weekend before I have to start teaching again so I am down to par-tay.

Howdy, neighbor! I should be around next weekend.

I'm a definite maybe I'll be coming from the SI Food Truck Rally so may be too stinky for human company, but I'd hate to miss it.

Saturday means I'd probably be in Philly, but if you did it on Friday, I would indeed be free.

I am encouraged by SF Mefites who have made great friend from meetups (MostlyBeans), and I will say I can include myself for roof parties!

Do we wanna do it on Friday for the presence of the Nog, or will that derail everyone's plans?
posted by functionequalsform at 1:34 PM on August 21, 2011


Friday works for me
posted by The Whelk at 1:35 PM on August 21, 2011


Same.
posted by Obscure Reference at 2:11 PM on August 21, 2011


actually, wait no Friday would be double booking me
posted by The Whelk at 2:58 PM on August 21, 2011


Ok, so Saturday. Sorry Nog. Big hearts. See you soon-ish, have fun in Philly, tell the wooooman I said hi!

Haha. Yeah, I was all whut.

I'll be at the Compleat Strategist for a game that usually ends five-ish (or before six-ish, I guess) so it may depend on how I'm feeling about life after saving the Earth from an alien invasion fleet.

I thought that place moved and then closed down?
posted by griphus at 9:58 AM on August 23, 2011


the one on 33rd is still open, but I think they had another location in the city that closed.
posted by Karmakaze at 10:36 AM on August 23, 2011


What the hell was that?
posted by griphus at 11:01 AM on August 23, 2011


HEY GUYS FULL STOP - I'VE JUST BEEN INFORMED I HAVE TO WORK THIS WEEKEND.

I AM SO SORRY. I WILL HAVE TO POSTPONE. FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU

This is why we can't have nice things. I will email each of you individually. :(
posted by functionequalsform at 12:31 PM on August 23, 2011


I'm also interested in the reschedule. Just so's you know.
posted by Eideteker at 6:22 AM on August 24, 2011


WELL THEN I AM TAKING MY FAVORITE BACK.

(I can't do the 10th.)
posted by griphus at 6:28 AM on August 24, 2011


Oh no! Well, if you reschedule for a time that happens to be pre-n00b I will happily attend.
posted by the young rope-rider at 8:00 AM on August 24, 2011


me too, let us know about the reschedule! Also, Irene will be in town, so.
posted by sweetkid at 1:31 PM on August 25, 2011


Yep, actually this is probably a good postponement. NPR's "Hurricane Irene-a-thon" is freaking me right out.

Anybody think it's really going to be that bad?
posted by functionequalsform at 5:36 AM on August 26, 2011


Are you a hurricane or a hurrican't?
posted by fuq at 8:02 AM on August 26, 2011


ok i'm scared
posted by grobstein at 8:13 AM on August 26, 2011


well, I stockpile water and canned goods anyway out of generalized crazy, so that's not such a big deal, but I am seriously worried about the BOREDOM FACTOR
