Hey, I'm coming to Brooklyn on the weekend of June 5th to beat around and be a tourist for a bit. Anyone want to get drinks/dinner in the area?

If people would prefer a different time, I'm definitely open to changing that until like a week before I come down.
Long-time MeFi user Phire is gonna be in New York City from May 28th to June 1st! We should obviously get together at some point while she's around (and I'll make a pilgrimage up if at all possible).
