NYC Meetup
« on: June 02, 2014, 01:51:56 PM »
Sunday June 22nd was mentioned as a possible date if this isn't coming too soon on the heels of our last picnic. I would be in! Central Park seemed to work well as a central location in case we want to just do a repeat of our last picnic.

I suggested the date but unfortunately won't be able to make it -- I ended up booking a flight that arrives the evening of the 22nd.  Too many weekends spent away from my family the last few weeks due to work, so thought it important to spend that extra day at home.

Hope you all have fun!

Awesome! I should be free.

Btw this week Thursday there is an interesting (free!) event for minimalists: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-minimalists-everything-that-remains-tour-new-york-city-tickets-8435684359

Thanks for the heads up on the event jingleszheng.

I will look to attend it. I have read some of their blog entries over the past year. Great stuff.

Is this event still happening? If so I'd be interested in attending. I'm new to the area so an address or location I could GPS would be helpful.

Since a few people can't make the 22nd, should we find another date in July?

I also can't make the 22nd. How about Sunday the 29th? or the Saturday evening before?

Not yet, I think.

Random suggestions and we can see how many have the possibility to meet:
- Sunday July 13th at 12 noon
- Saturday July 19th 12 noon
- Saturday July 19th 6 pm

Someone for whom weekdays are better can suggest a weekday as well.

(Aside, I think it would be better to have one single thread for NYC meetings instead of a new for each meet. Easier to subscribe to the messages that way.)

I could definitely do the 13th.  I couldn't really do 6pm on the 19th but noon might be doable.

I've got summer Fridays this month if any of the weekday folks would like the 11th or 18th.

I don't live in NYC but I love it and will be visiting July 24-27 ... So I'll keep an eye on this thread to see which date you settle on.

Feel like this is fizzling out due to scheduling difficulties. :( Maybe we should start a Google group or some other sort of email list to be able to reach people more easily?

Hey folks, another new member who is interested in a meetup.  Maybe a new thread is in order?

Usually sticking to one thread is best because then anyone who's been interested in the past gets the notification that there's activity on the thread.  With a new thread you might miss some people who don't see it since the forum is so busy.

So stay tuned!

Hey y'all! The weekend of August 16th/17th was mentioned in the google group for a meetup--how is that for people? I'm free on Sunday the 17th, so that's my vote obviously. :) Another Central Park picnic would be great!

Yay for the 17th! I agree, Central Park at noon by the Strand kiosk on 5th ave at 60th st should work as a picnic meeting spot if the weather obliges--we had good luck with it last time.

We're on, and I'm in.  Will possibly bring lentils (the fiancee, not the food), and possibly a friend, too.

We just moved from Manhattan to the Boston area, so I won't be able to attend any more of the NYC meetups.  Have fun everyone!  I had a great time at the last meetup in May.  --Ravi

I can make it, may be slightly late though--ioseftavi, maybe I'll message you my # separately? Returning from Westchester that morning, and not exactly sure on the arrival time. Not sure what I'll be bring, possibly some peaches/fruit...will try to remember to bring my kite again!

Sept 20th might work for me.  Let's start a new thread?  I feel like last time not enough NYC people clicked through because our thread title didn't match the meetup date.

It would be good to have a single thread for NYC. Can't we just ask a moderator to change the name of this one to "NYC meetup".

I'm in for the 20th. Thinking of doing the climate change march on sunday, so Saturday is better for me.
