Hey NYC: Wanna walk Broadway?

Many years ago I joined a group of MeFites to walk the length of Broadway in Manhattan. Wouldn't it be fun to do that again? I was thinking November 6 (Saturday) assuming the weather cooperates. [more inside]

March NYC Crafting

The next knitting/general crafting meetup is due to be at 11am on March 8th. The only wrinkle? Yelp suggests Coffeed is still closed, if not deceased, and I don't think we're totally thrilled with the Starbucks, so we should think about a location. [more inside]

Calling all zine makers!

I was thinking it would be cool if a bunch of zine makers came together to chit chat, trade and or make zines. Anyone know a good venue in Manhattan? I was thinking of doing this next Thursday, I guess around 6 for people that work?

Subway art meetup?

Update: Would October 19th (Saturday) work for people? Can propose other dates if not. I would want to do either a Bronx line (2, 4, or 5) or the J train from Kosciuszko on out. [As I mentioned in Metatalk I have been taking pictures of all NYC's subway art. Another Mefite expressed interest in joining me one day. Maybe you'd like to join me too?]
