Next time!!!

Norabird, thank you for hosting! Thanks for the good conversations. 

And just for the record, here are the books and websites I heard about today:

Now that we have a single thread it's not so bad. Meetup groups cost money, you know...

Welcome Mari!

Theonethatgotaway--there is a google group, mustachiansinnyc@googlegroups.com, but it usually just ends up pointing to this thread. You can set an alert on this discussion so you get updates when there are new posts.

You could try out these meetup groups though: http://frugalliving.meetup.com/cities/us/ny/new_york/

Thanks to everyone for coming out last week, very successful get together!

SO and I live in NJ an hour outside NYC (I work near Penn Station). Perhaps we can setup a park lunch one day in the spring when it's a bit nicer out? We all bring our lunches already!

Hi fellow NYC 'stashers!

Drakmon and I were so sorry to have missed the last meet up. I was out of town, unfortunately.

Since Drakmon and I are moving to our new, Mustachian-friendly digs in Washington Heights, what if we volunteered to host at our new place once we move in? We should be in and ready for company by the weekend of April 11.

Anyone interested?

I'd be interested! Would love to meet some fellow NYC area people. I also just moved, but to my own 1 bd apartment right on the other side of the river from you, in Cliffside Park/Fort Lee area. It has a nice sized backyard, so would also be down to host a BBQ or something once it gets warmer!

Me and lentils are almost definitely in - we'll confirm closer to the date, but you should expect to see us there.

SIDE NOTE, CAN WE GET SOME NAMETAGS FOR THE NEXT EVENT???  IT IS CRAZY TRYING TO KEEP TRACK OF WHO IS WHO IN MY HEAD.

While we're at it, any recommendations for relatively cheap areas with short commutes to Chelsea and the financial district (we're a couple, straight out of college, don't really want roommates)? (feel free to pm me instead of taking this thread off topic)

We've never done a MMM meet up before, so please share all your tips. Definitely should/can do name tags.

Nanu--we welcome you to our fair city! I'll send a note separately to you. We definitely have learned a lot about living in the city over the past 5 years and are always happy to help acclimate new New Yorkers.

Thanks, that would be great!

And hopefully I'll be able to come to future meetings (are mustachian meetings kinda like AA only people show up and say "Hi, I'm Dave, and I save 75% of my income"?)

Either that, or else they are like AA in that everyone is anonymous. Hi, nice to meet you, I'm "NYCWife."

Drakmon and NYCWife had planned on hosting one in the next few weeks - they're moving apartments and were going to announce when they were setup for hosting.  Stay tuned, I think they're in the midst of moving.

I'm also aiming to host something soon. Recently moved in a couple of blocks from our usual summer location by the Strand stand in the park. 62nd/Park.

Just feel like I need a little bit more furniture first.

If anyone is up for a meetup weekend of the 28th, I'll host.

Confirmed. We won't be "moved" until Sat 03/21. We're looking forward to opening up our new place! :)

I'm into hosting as well. but we have to sit on the floor with a blanket like a picnic. we ALL want to host. :)
Is anyone into a mini-meeting, before NYCWife is completely moved, in my place or somewhere outside? I'm interested in meeting some more like minded individuals.
You will all hear hilarious stories about Israel, eat some vegan food made by yours truely (if you are into coming to my place), we can also do play some music together and listen to some records.

NYCWife and I have moved! We're ensconced up in Washington Heights, around 160th St. and Broadway. The new place has tons of space, which we're looking forward to filling up with all your smiling faces soon enough.

We'll post an announcement in this thread with an RSVP link, as soon as we've figured out an optimal day for this.

Strange question, but I thought I'll throw this out here. I'm visiting the city the week of March 30th (for work reasons primarily), but will be walking through a few neighborhoods as I prep for my move. If anyone wants to show me their favorite place, by all means, send me a PM.

Let's do this!

Drakmon and I have officially and fully moved and are ready for company. Anyone want to come check out our new Mustachian digs in Washington Heights?

We'd be open to hosting a gathering next weekend (April 11 or 12) or the following weekend (April 18 or 19). Either of those weekends work for our Mustachian friends?

We have a good amount of seating and a bunch of board games, and an itch to cook in our new spacious kitchen.

Let us know what works and we'll get this up and running.

Hey all. New member but have lived mustachian for a couple years. I recently organized an ERE NYC meetup and would love to meet up with MMM'ers too! I'm free on any weekend day except for the afternoon/evening of April 12th, so don't schedule it then! :)

FYI: I'm 26 and living in Williamsburg. Yes it's possible to live relatively cheaply here.

It sounds like the 11th is the date that the majority of people can make!

If this goes well, we'll plan on having another meetup later in the year.
