Ice cream in winter? This must be some kind of wild dream! NO! It is reality! And it is delicious!

They have hot coffee, tea, and chocolate, if you MUST. But seriously, folks. Ice cream.

Why the change in venue? Did I miss something yesterday?

I just decided it capriciously because have gone MAD with POWER!

Also, I realized that people might not want to drink but still might want to participate. The Brooklyn Inn is still cool with me and everything, and it's actually on the same block as the ice cream place but across the street if folks want to get drinks too.

So mad with power that I CAN BARELY TYPE!!!

I was going to bring cupcakes or something to the meetup, because 1/25 is my birthday, but this will be way better. Yay!

do they have hot fudge sundaes? i could get down with ice cream if it has hot fudge on it :)

No, they are ice cream purists as far as I can tell.

I feel like you could sneak some hot fudge in a flask and surreptitiously help yourself out a little bit...

I'm new in town! I'm going to try to come to this or another soonish meetup with you folks. This week may or may not work out, because I normally don't leave the office until 6:30 and have lots of things on the docket right now. But perhaps next! Soon! Excited!

Welcome to NY! You're totally welcome to show up late if that helps in the decision making process.

Looking forward to meeting you eventually!

I think I'll come by, and check out MY NEW NEIGHBORHOOD! I'm moving to Cobble Hill on Wednesday.

Congratulations on the move! I love Cobble Hill.

Unrelated, but how long do the non ice cream meetups usually go for?

I've been wanting to attend, but unfortunately my work schedule is more like 10-7 (with a little spillover sometimes). I know it's a weird question since I doubt I'd miss everyone if I got there by 8:30 or something. It's just that while I live in Brooklyn, I'm nowhere near Cobble Hill and getting there from my job isn't super quick either and not exactly on the way home so posting in the thread and wait to see if anyone will answer before I head out the door or making sudden detours always makes me nervous about deciding to go.

(I just have weird neuroses about social gatherings that I'm going to go only to find out everyone decided to pack it in early that evening or all came down with the flu and everyone cancelled last minute or something like that =( )

Oh no! I would really love for you to be able to make one. Usually I leave between 9-10 and there are always people still there.

I also want to try to have a meetup more in North Brooklyn but that ends up being a bit tough for me to get to...hmm...let me think about this!

Bookwibble & I are here - they do have hot fudge sundaes on the menu.

Happy birthday, oyeah! Sorry i can't make it, but choir rehearsals started up again tonight.

We're moving to The Brooklyn Inn! Yay!

Brooklyn Inn is full, we're at Camp on Smith

Sorry gang, still fighting illness a bit. Oh yeah!, next week I'm going to buy you a GIGANTIC birthday drink.
