It was great having everyone over yesterday.

(And for any future hosts: this group was amazing in the minimal impact to the apartment. Took less than ten minutes to clean after everyone left. Thanks!)

I had a great time as well, and thanks again for hosting @luna!

Feb 27th for me. I am all kinds of busy on the 28th. ALL KINDS.

Also, what if we have a theme next time? Or someone does like a quick lightning talk about a book they read or something?!

Let's do Sat 2/27 then.

I think 5 min lightning talks would be great. If anyone would like to do one let me know.

Hey everyone!

I'm new here, but have waded into this journey since a few months ago. Would love to meet everyone! 27th would work for me too.

My slight preference for the 28th has turned into a hard no for the 27th. Might be able to stop by for a bit right at noon, but that would require I be on time for something, and if I'm not doing it for work...

Well, I'll give it my best shot.

Sat the 27th is coming up. Meetup at my apartment in Long Island City is still on for noon. I'll get some snacks but people should bring their own lunch as usual.

Private message me if you'd like to come and I'll give you the address. Apartment isn't too big so I'm gonna cap it at 12.

Who's up for another group hike this month? Central Park or Prospect, depending on where everyone is traveling from.

I can do the 19, 20, 26, 27.

Last summer, I happened to visit NYC. After a number of visits to the Big Apple I felt rather confident in knowing the city, just like this guy:

https://medium.com/@yurivictor/new-york-city-an-insiders-behind-the-scenes-guide-to-neighborhoods-fashion-food-people-and-seo-87a10331e89b

As can be seen a few pages back in this thread I joined a meetup - and it was fun. I arrived first, and I didn't know any real life names... and I didn't dare go up to the parties on the lawn asking if anyone was a snake-something or a monkey-someone... :)  And once I found the company, I discovred that of the five first people to show up, three were Swedish.  Weird.  Hi Luna!

Oh well.  This summer I'm going back, and therefore I suggest a (preliminary) meetup on July 23rd, sometime around noon.  Let's decide more details when it get's closer.  And the details may be that we choose another time or day.  :)

Cheers,
The Tourist

For a March meetup I can do 19 or 26.

If the weather stays good, I recommend a park as well. If not I can host again.

Let's do central park on the 19th, 1 pm in front of the dairy c visitor center. There's no good dates for everyone, but a few people can do that one.

Anyone else who's free, speak up!

Edited to change date, because Sunday is supposed to snow.

I can come (probably a bit late).  Don't want to mess with anyone's biking plans (MJ) but am happy to host inside in Harlem if it gets too freezing. I know, inside heating is soft, but... just an offer.

I am more biking to Harlem, kelsey!

If Luna is still coming, his apartment is nearby if it gets too cold.

See everyone soon! If my bike commute doesn't kill me.

Hi all,

Monstermonster is in town the weekend of May 13th, and we are using that as an excuse to have a NYC meetup.

We can figure out timing as it gets closer, but we're hoping to have a get together on Saturday, May 14th at my apartment in Harlem.  It's super convenient to the 2, 3, B, and C lines, as well as the M60 bus if you're coming from Queens.  Significant others and kids are welcome, although there is a large hypoallergenic dog in the apartment (he loves both significant others and kids).

We must be neighbors, onlykelsey. I'm on Fred. Douglass Blvd in the one-teens. I think I'll have a friend visiting from out of town that weekend, though...

@onlykelsey, you still planning on hosting? Otherwise central park is always an option. Weather permitting.

I am definitely still down for hosting, although if the weather is beautiful it could be fun to be outside.  How about we say 2 PM and then chat a day or two before depending on the weather?

Engineerstache- 3 PM is fine by me. 
Pooperman- I'm in Harlem (near the 2/3 express, ~8 min from the A/B/C/D), but we could always meet in the park, of course, if it's not miserable and raining.

@onlykelsey volunteered to host on Sat. Or if the weather holds up we can meet in central park.

Maybe we can make a decision Fri night depending on the forecast?

Looks like there will be an afternoon thunderstorm tomorrow. Probably best not to chance out an outdoor meet-up.

@onlykelsey: You still game to host?

If not we can meet up in an indoor location like the IBM atrium at 56th and Madison. Would anyone else be up for that?

Kelsey seems to have vanished ( hope you're ok out there, Kelsey! ) in light of this the IBM Atrium is a good backup spot.

See everyone at 3 pm!
