@dibk, no one else has replied so we can try again in November.

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.

Heading over in a bit.  I just realized I don't have a cool mustache so will sit by the windows and I'll have a bright blue jacket on.  See everyone soon!

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!

i'm down for april 21st , I really need more friends into FIRE , lately I've noticed more and more that most of my friends are all about spending.  Like they literally can not enjoy time with friends unless their spending for show....  if weather is warm suggestion would be central park :)

Central Park sounds good and we can do the winter garden if the weather isn't nice.  Around 2PM?

Yes, but the weather looks good so the south fountain by the MET works.  See you at 2pm this Saturday!  We can wait there for 15 minutes or so then find a spot close by.

I might be able to join you folks on Saturday for a couple hours. Not familiar with the south fountain. Can someone share a google map location?

I'll be there, too. If I understand correctly, they're talking about the fountains outside the Met on the plaza. There are two fountains, so they're talking about the one that is located towards the South. I think this image on the Met's webpage shows the fountains:

https://www.metmuseum.org/press/news/2014/plaza-opening

I'll have a bright red backpacking backpack with me. That might help people find us.

yea thats exactly what i'm talking about ! cool pic , was there last week and they even had umbrella with table seating ahahah,  by the steps of the MET each side has a fountain so since we going inside park thinking south side (around 81st) would be more logical.  But I'm open to where ever you guys prefer.   I'll wear a red schaeffer beer hat to match :)

So, to clarify, meet at south fountain on plaza along 5th avenue outside the Met, closest to 81st street at 2PM on Saturday. Is that correct? Sounds like an okay location to me.

Nice meeting you all, I had a great time!

Towards the end someone mentioned an internet source that had a flow chart with personal finance goals/tasks/steps.  I really like this link that was shared with me a couple of months ago:

it was so nice meeting everyone !

I needed to type this before I forgot but remembered cheap date spot and solution to wine bill , totally blanked on this before
Little Thai Kitchen - its BYOB, no corkage fee and super tight spot, and not super tacky looking so good for dates
and if you willing to trek to Williamsburg purely for the ambiance loud clubby but impressive design is "SEA"

For those who were at the meetup last Saturday, I called Vanguard and asked if the Target Retirement Funds has a hidden expense ratio because it is a fund of funds. The person said no, the expense ratio that is listed (in my case, 0.15%) is the only expense ratio.

That being said, I ended up moving to a different fund with an even lower expense ratio anyway. =D

Also, this is a great flow chart! I used a very simplified version (from my dad!) when I was first starting out, but this one is great for where I am now. Has anyone done the "Mega Backdoor Roth" that is mentioned in that chart? https://www.madfientist.com/after-tax-contributions/
