HI friends! I'm teaching an Intro to Poker Class at the very adorable skill share place QED in Astoria next week. The class is $20 which gets you 1 unforgettable hour of extremely useful and fun instruction on both how to play better poker (with a side order of basic statistics) and how to not look like a rube while playing, plus an entry into a free tournament to commence right after the class, at which you could win a fabulous prize (probably a poker book, I don't actually know). Here is a link to the venue. Please ignore the part that says I am a professional player. I was just bluffing when I wrote that. Ha ha. Anyway if you want $5 off the price let me know and I'll send you a discount code. Or just show up and let me know you're from metafilter and I'll buy you a beer.
We have confirmed a Manhattan meetup on Sat. Oct. 18th! Since I'm in NYC for the weekend I'd like to follow it up with a brunch & beergarden meetup on Sunday, Oct 19th. [more inside]

We all talked about it last night, it's time to give Queens a chance. Crescent lounge is a great, chill place for a meetup, and it is two short blocks away from the Broadway St N stop. There are lots of couches, drinks are very cheap by NYC standards, and there are board games. [more inside]
