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"

I had my MMM shirt on and ready to go but I got held back by something :-( Glad to see you all made it and had a good time!

I have a completely free schedule this upcoming Saturday if anyone wants to meet up.

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/

Following for next time - As the weather gets nicer I, (and maybe DW?) would be down to hit a park and play a pick up game of whatever, go to the beach, skateboard ... anything outside and active. Hope to meet up sometime soon!

In case anyone's interested in joining this hike on Sat., 6/23:

7 miles of the Appalachian Trail out of Pawling, NY. This section is called Cat Rocks Trail and it starts at a Metro North train stop called Appalachian Trail, on the Harlem Line. Here's the plan for the day:

    - Meet at 7am at the Harlem-125th St. Metro North station (roundtrip ticket is $33.50)
    - Train departs at 7:20am
    - We'll arrive at the trailhead (after 1 transfer) 2 hours later, approximately 9:20am
    - We have 5 hours to hike before our returning train at 2:35pm (we will be taking breaks along the way and a snack/lunch break in the middle)
    - We'll be back at the Harlem-125th St. Metro North station at approximately 4:35pm

Suggestions of what to bring / wear:
  2 liters of water; snacks that combine carbs and protein like trail mixes; cheese; nut butter; granola bars; etc.
  Sunscreen, sunglasses, hat with brim, lightweight rain shell/poncho, extra shirt for chill of A/C train after sweating.
  Sneakers or lightweight hiking boots; socks that wick moisture; shorts or lightweight pants and t-shirt/tank, preferably not cotton so sweat wicks away.

Despite Saturday's forecast of 80% chance of rain in Pawling, NY, a few of us still intend to hike (unless the rain is extreme before boarding the 7:20am train at 125th St (7:10 if boarding at Grand Central)

The group will transfer at Southeast (at approximately 8:51am) for the final leg to the AT stop (arriving at 9:22am)

-Since rain gear will most likely be needed, this includes wool socks if you have them as well as rain pants and jackets. Also recommend is a change of clothes so the air conditioned train isnít uncomfortable on the way back. Keep your dry clothes wrapped in a plastic bag in your backpack to keep it dry if you do not have a waterproof pack.  Still bring water and snacks.

There will be other hikes regardless, so if hiking in the rain isn't for you, feel free to hold off until the next trip.

Hello again, last update:
Sorry to say this hike is postponed. 
Forecast is for thunderstorms from 10am to 9pm in Pawling - lightening is not safe so we'll hike on another day.

No worries, turns out I have to work an overnight shift 10pm-6am tonight, so maybe a long hike this morning would have been a bad idea! Definitely keep us posted on the next one.

Hey folks, I am working from NYC tomorrow and Wednesday.

I could meet up for lunch tmrw any time between 11-1, coming into Penn and heading toward the West Village direction for a 1:30 meeting, or do an MMM dinner any time after 6:30 PM.

Wednesday lunch near midtown or lower Central Park could work.

Let me know!

Hoping to attend a NYC meet up later this year.

For NYers w library cards you can now visit a slew of museums for free.
 http://gothamist.com/2018/07/16/nypl_culture_pass.php

Can you just stroll up and show your library card at the Met? No. You'll have to reserve your passes online first.

And in the spirit of frugality, a reminder that you can stream plenty of movies through NYPL and Kanopy:
