For an indoor location we've often met at the IBM atrium in Manhattan. Unless someone else has a place in mind that will be the easiest.

I'll also try to be there! Will bring an index card that has MMM in big letters on it and wander around confusing those who are not in the know.

I'll be the millennial fighting the guy in the red hat. :)

I wouldn't be caught dead wearing a Trump had lol!

I wish I could actually join you folks, 2 hours each way by car/train for me from out here in the Suffolk county boonies.

I wonder if security is gonna be a hassle at the IBM atrium since it is connected to Trump tower.

Maybe we are better off going to the Sony atrium across the street between E 56th and 55th.

Gah, how does one follow a thread? I keep missing them, too.

Anyone interested in a meet up in January, perhaps Saturday 1/21 at 2pm? I'd love to meet a couple other Mustachians soon. I'm six months into FIRE and I'm starting to crave more social interaction. :o)

Too bad you missed this one! I use the Notify option for this thread so I get an email about any plans.

Inauguration weekend may not be the best option. Some of us will be busy or gone, and our usual winter meeting spot is in or near Trump Tower.

1/21 is the NYC march! Go to that after? Or instead? My choir is singing by the UN for it...

I'd definitely love a meetup in January! I'm usually at the NYC Python Programming meetups Saturdays and Sundays, but I can make an exception or leave one early since they're three times a week. :)

Any time on the weekend, or evenings on the weekdays (like 7, I'm usually working until 6 or so M-F) work best for me. I don't have any plans for January aside running around like a maniac trying to find a new place.

I'm going to be selfish and suggest 2 pm on Jan 28 because that weekend is the only one I am free.

@chatche will you still be here?

1/28 @ 2pm works for me too :)

Let's do it!

Should we still meet in the usual spot, Sony atrium? Another option could be Brookfield place near world trade. More convenient for Brooklyn and New Jersey.

I can do 1-28 at 2. Most likely. Brookfield place works better for me.

Let's plan on that then

1/28 2pm @ Brookfield place on the steps in the big atrium.

I think the steps will be our best bet to find each other and have a place to sit.

@rainas we have them ever other month or so. More often in the warmer months.

@james I'll bring my trusty mustache sign / placard, but it shouldn't be hard to spot us sitting on the steps of the atrium.

Dear All - Hope NYC meetup this wknd was awesome.

Since I am relatively new to MMM forums, I might be suggesting something that is not workable so do let me know if that is the case.

1. Forward Meetup Calendar - do you think we should set up a forward meetup calendar, for eg something like last Thursday of every month or whatever works. For me personally, having a forward calendar ensures I dont plan something else that evening.

2. Standard Location - Is there a standard location where you always meet? If not, should we set up a standard location that always works (even in the NYC winter).

I would love to know date of next meetup (for Feb) -so that I can block my calendar soon.

Thanks so much
Rainas

I'm open to a monthly recurring thing. Not sure about which day would be best. In the spring / summer it is really nice to meet in the park on a Sat or Sun. But mixing in some weekdays would allow people to attend that are busy on weekends.

For location we have often met at one of the atriums on madison and 56th (IBM or Sony). Maybe that could be a monthly spot, then we still plan hikes or picnics in the park when the weather is nice.

How about Thurs Feb 23rd for the next meetup?

Meet at the Sony atrium at 6pm. That too early? 7pm?

I'm usually in work until 5:30 or 6. I can make a 6 P.M. meetup, just not on time :)

And apologies for not being there for the last one -- family business!
