I am celebrating my new job by escaping the smoke and jetting across the world to NYC on NYE. Any NY mefites want to hang with me and my friend Taff on 1/2 or 1/3? (Check out my American style dates!) [more inside]
Let's get dinner Sunday at 6:30 at Pongal!
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?]
January isn't over yet, and you can never have too much dim sum, so, how's about an encore? Same bat time, same bat channel -- Bamboo Garden [more inside]
Let's meet up at 52 Main in Millerton, have a couple beers, help a Hudson Valley noob (me) get situated, and just Be Mefites Together. [more inside]
The time for happy birthday dim sum is here - this year at Bamboo Garden, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
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]
Dim sum time is here again - this year, ferret branca and I want to meet up at Buddha Bodai on Mulberry Street (yelp page), how about you? [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]
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?
I'm in the city and have a four-day weekend open May 5 through 8. yeahlikethat and netaustin are my hosts for various parts of this trip, and I'd love to meet anyone who's game! Work is near the Flatiron, but I'll be staying in Astoria most of the time I'm here. Proposal: Meeting at Haymaker in Chelsea on Saturday, May 6, in the afternoon or evening for drinks and/or a meal. [more inside]
Who wants to head uptown to the Golden Girls-themed cafe Rue La Rue? [more inside]
In past threads on the blue I've nicknamed my local, Putnam's Pub and Cooker, "Best Bar In The World". Wanna come have brunch and see what I'm talking about? It's reopening after a fire and needs a little extra love right now. [more inside]
January is here, so, ferret branca and I want to have dim sum with mefites again, at delicious Pacificana in Brooklyn. The more the merrier (and the smaller the final tab, usually), who's in? (previously) (moved to February so as not to coincide with Chinese New Year's Day) [more inside]
Original text moved below fold. Taking ferret branca's suggestion and nailing down the date/place. Hope to meet you all, and maybe I'll bring Gillian with me. If you're thinking "OMG, 9 pm on a Sunday?!" remember that Monday is Memorial Day and most of you won't be working. [more inside]
Barbeque, Bernie Williams, and metafilter: let's meet at the pedestrian plaza next to the Flatiron Building opposite Madison Square Park at 2PM, and then head to the Big Apple Barbecue Festival. I'm not able to make it to this anymore, but if anyone ends up going, have fun! [more inside]

Having just survived 19 miles of the Great Saunter I rediscovered my love for walking Manhattan. Anyone want to walk Broadway from Marble Hill to the Battery sometime this spring/summer? [more inside]
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]
I'm throwing a party to celebrate getting through the equinox and the beginning of spring, but more importantly International Color Day! I had such a lovely time at my first meetup here in New York I'd like to invite y'all to stop by if you'd like. I'll be baking pies and cookies; there will be cocktails and other beverages and interesting folks and friends and lots of lovely conversation. It'll be bright and colorful in every sense.

Same old, same old. Bring your games, bring your food, bring your drinks. We start at 2pm. UPDATE: We will be ending at 8pm this time.
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!
The epic story of an anti-Semitic riot in 1903 told in the form of a Jewish folk tale. A young female mystic and her community of Hasids experience the event through the lens of Yiddish legends and the daily details of Jewish life in turn-of-the-century Eastern Europe. [more inside]
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]
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.

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]
