Yeah I'm feeling like I'll be present for this one, classes still out on break, etc. My new years resolution is 1280 x 960.

Yeah, I'm in. This is just too close to my place, and I haven't been to a meet-up since moving here.

What's the best subway route from 23rd St or Union Square? Google maps says to take the F from 23rd to the Bergen St stop, the NY Mag HopStop link doesn't seem to believe 148 Hoyt St Brooklyn exists.

It's right by the F stop. F stop is Smith and Bergen, and Brooklyn Inn is @Bergen and Hoyt.

God DAMN it -- I wanted to do this this week finally, but an unfortunate New Year's Eve incident involving some blackberry juice, champagne and a recording of "Come On Eileen" have caused what might be a broken toe. Will be at a doctor for the verdict tonight.

(Although, I'll mark myself a "maybe" in case the doctor says "oh, nah, it's just a nasty sprain, you'll be fine" in which case I'll try to stop by for a celebratory nip.)

Hi, I'm a relatively new Mefite, somewhat introverted, with a New Year's resolution to be more social.

I am really social so we'll average to "somewhat social"

I'm running a bit late due to childcare issues but am leaving now will be there by 7:30 at the latest. We usually congregate in the middle room, it's on the left-hand side past the bar. See you all then!

On my way, too. Be there about 7:30 as well.

Me and my new friend -- a guy named Jones Fracture Of the Fifth Metatarsal -- will have to stay home.

DAMMIT.

Sorry about your foot, Empress!

Great to see everyone again, or for the first time.

Groovy little scene, people. I got sonic screwdrivered. The Inn was nice and not jam-packed. Future partytime funjinx were chatted over. Go Pats!

I missed the Pats convo :( Go Pats!

excellent times. I didn't get to talk to everyone, which, boo. That means you'll just have to come by more often!
