I think meeting up with GoCurryCracker on August 12th would be awesome.

Thanks for the heads up Chippewa!

Unfortunately, I was out of town on August 14th. Did people meet? Has this discussion been moved to the meetup . com group? I'm confused. I live in NYC and would be interested in meetups.

It's been a while since I've been to an MMM meetup. Maybe one in September?

Hi, this is my first post. I'd be interested in a Mustachian Meetup in NYC. How about the last weekend in September, the 29th or 30th? I've never met anybody interested in financial independence in real life. Are there any websites besides this one where I could find similar meetups?

I could do the weekend of Sep 29. mathstach, there are also meetups through ERE and and Reddit's Financial independence board.

Also: it's primary election day! If you're an NYC resident, go vote. Polls are open until 9 PM.

Thanks for the reminder, I'd already forgotten after having a whole conversation about it this morning (yay sleep deprivation!).

If you have any thoughts on the mayoral race, I'd love to hear them. I know you know your politics, and I haven't made up my mind yet.

You're welcome!

My thoughts: de Blasio's going to win. He's going to win the primary, and he's going to win the general. Sal Albanese is the most legit Democratic challenger, in the sense of having the most votes/financing, but I'm mixed on him. Biggest drawback is his support for Broken Windows policing.

I saw Bob Gangi at an End Broken Windows event, and I like his stance on police reform.

dB is kind of in the middle, because once you're actually mayor, you desperately try not to piss off cops. But some progress has been made around BW. And, ya know, he's done some good stuff. And some bad stuff.

This is heavily BW-focused, though. What are your top issues?

I will vote for de Blasio in the general, and I will be happy that NYC has a strong Democrat mayor. I won't fault anyone for voting elsewhere in the primary.

I'm kind of torn between selfish issues (transportation/accessibility, housing, supporting the arts) and issues I see as being important overall to most NYC humans (policing, education).

Maybe since it is a sort of foregone conclusion I should vote for the guy who wants to repeal the cabaret law just to make a statement :-)  ETA: His website also says he has a 17-year-old car. He's probably on the forum!

Thanks, MonkeyJenga, for the suggestions. I couldn't find any upcoming NYC meetups on ERE when I checked last week, but there does seem to be a financial independence meetup in NYC on Monday, October 9, that I found via Reddit's FI board. Still, since I have a coaching commitment most Monday nights, a meetup on the weekend of September 29, give or take a week, would make more sense for me. ADK68, glad you're interested. Hope we can work something out

Hello all,

Looking to connect with likeminded folks in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

New to the forum but not new to pursuing this lifestyle. Where did you find the details on the October 9th MeetUp in the Sub-Reddit?

I think it would be a good start if we could get just a couple people (even just 2 or 3 people) for an initial meet up and then schedule a couple dates that people can plan around.   I went to a gocurrycracker meetup, and it was nice to meet folks but there was no follow up since it was a one time thing...

If anyone is interested in trying that I would be happy to meet up.   For me, it's actually easier to meet on weekdays in the evening.  I work in lower Manhattan so if there are any folks interested in doing an after work meet up in the next few weeks please post here and we'll find a day and decide where to go.

+1 for after work meet up (although weekends also OK, and it is easier to find free spaces by day).

NYC: while it is still warm enough, does anyone want to have an after-work meet-up? Does Thursday, 26 October work for anyone? Somewhere in downtown/lower Manhattan.

I'm in for Thursday.  6 or 6:30?   Do you have a spot in mind?  If not, seaport area has indoor and outdoor options.

6:30 works. It looks like it'll be a bit too cool for something outside, so I welcome suggestions in Lower Manhattan. NYCers, can we get some more RSVPs?

Sounds good.   Happy to meet up in November except for the Thanks Giving week.  You want to throw a date out there to plan?

Sorry for the delayed response. I don't think I will be in town on the 23rd actually, and possibly not the 22nd. What about like the 20th?

Early afternoon on Jan 27 works for me!

FYI, there is a Bogleheads meetup next Saturday, Jan 13 @ 2:30pm at the Signature Theater cafe seating area. The address is 480 West 42nd Street. After you enter the building through the glass doors, go up the staircase to the cafe area. This area is open to the public and there is plenty of seating.

Hey! I just made an account to say: the meetup today was a lot of fun. We talked everything from taxes and investments to dating and travel to the meaning of life and the future of capitalism. It was a good time.

We also had nine people, which is more than you might have expected from reading this thread. So, for future organizers: there are definitely people who lurk this forum looking for social meetups with other mustachians but who don't post. (I am one of them.) So... either people like me should post more indicating our interest, or there should be some organizational apparatus that is lower-friction than signing up for the forum, to capture the lurkers. I'm not sure which it should be; just wanted to log this data point.

Agreed, I enjoyed today's meetup! Good conversation, and it was great to catch up and get to know some new people. I added Thinking Fast and Slow to my queue.

For future meetups, I kinda get the sense that if someone posts "I'm free at <time> on <date>, anyone wanna meet up at <place>", and there's a confirmation, then people will show up. With Brookfield being a convenient location for many.

The Bogleheads group is pretty cool! Many more retirees than the NYC FI/RE meetup.

The author of Pound Foolish talked a bit during the first half of the meeting. Much interesting discussion of some particular blogs (Early Retirement Now), books (Strangers in Paradise), retirement styles (escapeerv.com), charitable giving, and taxes. We broke into small group discussions as the evening went on. Overall, a great experience!

It has been a year since I last attended a meet up.  A lot has changed in that time and I am finally make the leap to be partially FIREd this month!  Lots to talk about! :-D  I'll keep my eye open for the next meet up!
