Is it really a hell of a town?

Sat September 3 at 5:30 PM, The West Cafe
379 Union Ave, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Thanks to the answers to my AskMe question, I will be floating around NYC from 9/2 through 9/4 with no firm plans on what to do. I will be staying in Brooklyn (Bushwick, wherever that may be) but I can go wherever the subway/train/bus will take me. Does anyone want to meet up for dinner or some other sort of hanging out?

I will be out of town but I love the phrase "(Bushwick, wherever that may be)."

The middle of nowhere.

OH.

WHAT.

Let's hang out if I'm not actively pushing a baby out of my vagina. I used to live in Bushwick, what train line are you on, the L or the M? I think we could wrangle up a meetup.

Would like to humbly suggest The West Cafe, since it's run by "MetaFilter's own" bellebelle (lurker that she is).

I'd go.

I'll be in midtown Saturday afternoon and could probably get out to brooklyn without much trouble.

Can you guys do one in mid October as well? I'm doing a round the world fly by and would love to see some NY Mefites.

I'm apparently five minutes walk from both the L and M trains (Myrtle Wykoff station). The West Cafe sounds grand! Shall we say Saturday afternoon, so Karmakaze will be able to be there? Karma, what time works for you?

The young rope-rider, I would love for you to come, but obviously pushing out a baby takes precedence. Good luck!

The game I go to usually breaks up about five, so it's a matter of how long it takes to get from the Empire State Building area to the cafe.

90% sure that griphus can see the wonder wheel from his house.

If you are on the L that sounds like a good bar and I approve of this meetup.

Hey! Shut up!

...I have to take the train two stops.
posted by griphus at 1:52 PM on August 31, 2011


Should we say around six, more or less, to give Karmakaze time to get into Brooklyn? Five-thirty? Start at five-thirty and people can come in as they please?
posted by cereselle at 2:14 PM on August 31, 2011


I bet any of those would be okay! You could always be fancy and say 5:45!

Also, people will wander in late no matter what you do.
posted by the young rope-rider at 2:43 PM on August 31, 2011


I'm not a fancy person, so let's say Saturday, 5:30 at The West Cafe. Hurray!

Yay for Brooklyn meetups!

I actually might be able to make this. I may also have to be on a severe budget (my employment next week is approaching Schroedingers' Cat status), so I'll just be a "maybe" for now.
posted by EmpressCallipygos at 7:32 AM on September 1, 2011


Ooh, I'll try to make it, seeing that I live in the middle of nowhere, wherever that may be.

Ha. Reminds me of my favorite dry cleaners.

I have my brother in town but he'll probably be at the US Open all day which I can't afford so instead of crying in to my whatever-O's I'd totally love to meet up!

Chances are good I'll be on Coney Island that day. Sorry, but unless I can get away for a bit, I'm going to miss this one. =(

Affirmative! Once you know for sure when you will be here, post to IRL 2 1/2 - 3 weeks before you would like to meet-up and we will set something up!

Yay, I'll be able to go to a nyc mefi meetup afterall!

Mils just turned up, and I am here with cereselle and her nonmefi friend.

We are here looking like we're from the internet!!

that was very fun, yay, nice seeing some of you again/meeting others!
posted by the young rope-rider at 7:09 PM on September 3, 2011


That was great! Thank you so much, everyone, for coming out. Sorry we couldn't stay more than a couple hours, but it was still fantastic.
