It's been a while. My fiancee and I will be in New York City the evenings of Wednesday, 29 October through Saturday, 1 November. We would love to see the awesome New York MeFites! I'm thinking Revival would be a good place to meet on 8 p.m. on Saturday, 1 November.

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]

Allons-y!

I will be in NYC this Saturday and would love to meet some of you lovely peeps. I've been told about a bar called The Way Station that is a Doctor Who/Steampunk/nerdy bar. I was thinking meeting up there around 5ish since the Yelp reviews says it gets rather busy and live music starts at 7. There is a happy hour from 4-8 everyday. [more inside]

Dim Sum - Manhattan redux edition

Have we not had an NYC dim sum meetup since February 2012?! This shall not stand. Chinatown's The Golden Unicorn has been conducive to good meetups before, but, would people like to try Pacificana in Brooklyn's Chinatown for a change? I went there once with family and thought the dim sum was more varied than Golden Unicorn's, but the wait time for a table can be long. -- EDIT - Manhattan wins this round, for Saturday 11/9 at 11am.

Board Games in Brooklyn! (Now with less Hurricane)
