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?]

I want to take a weekend trip up to New York in September or October, and I'd like to come at a time when I can meet up with New York MeFites! So, is there a specific date when I should (or should not) head up? Specific place where you would (or would not) want to meet? In short, when exactly are you all free? [more inside]

Anybody interested in seeing Jaws on the big screen at the UPCA? They will begin with a 'beach party', then a Q&A with 2 shark experts. Tickets are $10 online, $15 at the door. If you've never been to the UPCA, it is a beautifully restored movie palace (previously on IRL). [more inside]

Let's chit chat!

I'm interested in planning a meet up where people can chit chat and get to know each other. I've never been to a meet up so I don't really know how these things go. I would say we could go to a chill bar as long as they have non alcoholic drinks. If anyone has other ideas, those would be great too. Proposed time: early evening, in a week or so. Does anyone have preferences for time and day?

An Irish wake for Terry Pratchett

A meetup in the memory of Terry Pratchett. It was great going through his obit thread the other day. Terry's books influenced me a lot and helped me think about so many things in so many new ways. And I think, it would be a good idea to get together to give Terry a hearty, joyous send off. We could all come together, assume names from list of characters from his writings, may be even dress like some of them and discuss, drink and celebrate life, his and our own. [more inside]

Westchester NY meetup

Just in case people haven't checked back on the proposal, I thought I'd make this an official meetup. After consultation with my native guides, I've made an executive decision in favour of the Cedar Street Grill in Dobbs Ferry this Saturday, 6 December, at 1pm. Hope to see some of the Northern NY Mefites there!

NYC/Metro North MeFites meet up

Edited to make it a Thing which is Happening. So I'm coming States-side in a bit over a week. It's mostly a family-visiting trip, rather than a tourism trip, and I'll be spending quite a bit of December in Dobbs Ferry. From there, it's pretty easy to get on a train to the city and do meeting type things there too. Anyone feel like meeting up? [more inside]

Lunch on the 7th, Brooklyn?

Hello, MetaFilter! I'll be popping by Brooklyn from the 6th to the 11th of this month, and I wonder if anyone would care for a quick lunch meet-up (let's say on Sunday the 7th) with me, Mrs quidnunc and the quidnunc baby (him name: quark). Somewhere nice in Williamsburg or thereabouts may be easiest, and a pub is always an option if drunch is better than lunch. Or an afternoon cocktail or tea party, or whatever. Or feel free to tell me where to go, either literally or figuratively. [more inside]
