Reminder: NYC Meetup This Friday, March 20

Screen Shot 2014-10-03 at 9.26.58 AM

Some out-of-town DW readers will be in NYC, which is a perfect excuse for a meet-up. Let’s keep it centrally-located and after work so more people can make it. (The picture above is from the an NYC meetup this past fall).

When: Friday, March 20

Time: 6 PM for drinks, 7 PM for dinner

Where: Let’s start at House of Brews at 302 W 51st St (just off 8th ave.). It’s a cliche sports bar, but it’s nice and central and close to lots of restaurants and roomy enough that it shouldn’t be overly crowded on a Friday evening. Plus, lots of beers. Around 7, once everyone’s arrived, we can make our way to El Centro for dinner. It’s just a few blocks away at 824 9th Ave (at 54th).

Since the forums are down and I’m not sure when/if they will be fixed, let’s use this thread to touch base with each other if we need to as the meetup time approaches.

    Ahhh, look at those gorgeous dearwendiers from the NYC meetup last fall. No offense, but there is NO WAY you guys will have a meetup as awesome as that one was. It’s just not possible. But you should try! Winner gets…. something to be determined by me when the winner is decided.

        Only those who attended the fall meetup *and* the upcoming meetup get to decide. And you should consider the following factors: number of attendees; number of attendees who get drunk; whether juicy confessions were made and just how juicy were they; how many lurkers showed up; how many people from out of town showed up; and if Addie Pray was there. And then the fall meetup should get extra points for being disadvantaged for now knowing these factors ahead of time.

    What the fuck, dudes — it’s going to be SNOWING (again!) tomorrow evening. I hope that doesn’t deter anyone who was planning to come from coming. I will still be there. I’ll just have to dig out my snow boots from the back of the closet where I swore they would stay until December, argghhhh.

    I’ll be sad to miss this one (due to a prior commitment, not the weather, I swear)! Hope you all have an awesome time (though it’ll be tough to top the fall meetup), and I’ll catch you at the next one!

    I made a reservation for us at House of Brews at 6. The restaurant, El Centro, doesn’t take reservations, but if we get there and find we can’t get a seat, there are plenty of other options nearby.

    I am at a Starbucks on 57th b/t 8th and 9th where I’ve set up a temporary office and am wheeling and dealing on conference calls. I can’t wait for my first margarita – assuming El Centro can accommodate us.

        I had light bladder leakage yesterday afternoon when I sneezed, and had to change my underwear. #tmi #pregnancywoes

      I don’t typically have it – just when I have a baby sitting on my full bladder when I sneeze.

    Oh I know! Their tagline is “When you sneeze, giggle, are blackout drunk, or have a human sitting on your bladder.”

    I’m not at all jealous by all this banter and excitement in anticipation of the meetup tonight that I can’t go to, not at all.

    Addie, if you’re so excited you’re going to pee, AND you have a dude sitting on your bladder, maybe run out to Walgreen’s and get some Poise liners or pads.
