Post Thanksgiving Weekly Meetup

This is for the week after Thanksgiving, either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. I'm being democratic here, which is an experiment with these sorts of things. Well, except for the neighborhood.

Back to the LES because life is beautiful, the bars are beautiful and even the drinks are beautiful. We've been to Local 138 and the Magician and while I would be completely happy going back to either (especially the Magician), I was wondering if anyone had any other bars in that neighborhood they were fond of and wanted to hit.

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.

Performance Art Burlesque Showcase!

My drunken mumblings at MeFieri 2 revealed that I do burlesque, and I'm working on an act that will be at the Slipper Room. I don't want to reveal much because I leave that for the stage, but I'm hoping it will be fun and amusing. And hey, the Slipper Room does good cocktails. The other acts are a little more deep and interesting than mine, but I'm trying to make them a surprise too. Also, boobies. [more inside]

Board Games in Brooklyn!

I want to play board games with you fine people! I can host such an event on Sunday, Oct. 28th. We have Ticket to Ride, Scrabble, and Risk, and I've been looking for an excuse to buy Pandemic or Dominion. We can either use my place (we have three tables that could be used for playing games) or somewhere else.

Drinks in New York

I'll be leaving dear old Blighty and heading over the pond to New York from the 10th - 16th November, in advance of going to a friend's wedding the weekend after. I decided to head out a week early in order to catch up with some old friends and spend some time wandering around the city again (I lived there for a while a few years back). It occurs though, that this presents an opportunity to maybe make some new friends as well. So what about it New York MeFites - fancy meeting up for a few drinks one night?

Is it really a hell of a town?

Thanks to the answers to my AskMe question, I will be floating around NYC from 9/2 through 9/4 with no firm plans on what to do. I will be staying in Brooklyn (Bushwick, wherever that may be) but I can go wherever the subway/train/bus will take me. Does anyone want to meet up for dinner or some other sort of hanging out?
