Last night, there was an NYC meet-up, and it was so much fun! I think a lot of us agreed that we should do it more often but that it's very hard to coordinate with all the NYC bees' schedules. And trying to find a date that works for everyone is kind of unrealistic and leads to long gaps between meet-ups, which clearly is unacceptable.
SO, would anyone be interested in a standing meet-up date, ie the 2nd Tuesday of the month (for example) from 6:00 to whenever? The location can change, but I think midtown is the best option. That way, if someone misses one meet-up, they know they can come to the next one and when it will be. Also, no one really has to take the initiative of putting it together, we'll only have to agree on a place to go.
So is anyone interested? Or would this just be me drinking at the bar by myself?
I'd be down.
aww id love too, I wanna live in America!!
@wwbga: You're having your wedding in NYC?? How exciting! If we're having a meet-up while you're in town, you should come!
Fun idea! I'd like to be kept in the loop.
@EastMeetsBarn: Will do!
I really hope we can set this up because a lot of people usually express interest on the boards but then end up not being able to come.
I somehow missed that there was a meetup last night. I'd be interested in this.
There was a meetup last night? :-\
I think it should be Tuesday or Weds since people typically have plans on Thursdays.
I know, I RARELY check the Local boards, where the meet up info is posted. I missed one or two earlier in the year.
ETA - Tues or Wed works for me!
Count me in!! :D
I'm also rarely on the NYC boards, especially since I'm now an old married lady, and didn't get married in NYC so I couldn't comment on NYC venues, caterers, florists, etc.
Alright, so does the 2nd Tuesday of the month work for you ladies? That would make the next meet-up 11/13, followed by 12/11.
Does anyone have another suggestion? Wednesdays? The 1st or 3rd week of the month?
@redheadem: that would be great
I would love to come! I missed the last one.
Missed last night's but I'd definitely be down :)
Honestly I'm pretty flexible so the 2nd Tues of the month works for me!
I had such a great time last night! I was sad to have to leave early! I like the idea of a standing meet up- Tuesdays are good!! Can't wait!!!!!!!!!
Sounds good to me!! It was so nice talking wedding last night and not worrying about boring people!!
@CityBearBride: Yes! I can't tell you how many of my friends have told me about this site: http://myfriendsaremarried.tumblr.com/ nice to be around people who get it.
Oh wait, I can't do Tuesdays unless people will be around until after 8 (I have class). Otherwise I would love to come!
@lotto: We stayed until 9 last night, and even then, it's because they needed the table!
If I can tempt you guys to downtown I could come earlier . Near NYU is totally convenient for Grand Central and Penn!
@lotto: Ohh there ARE a lot of good bars by NYU...
Have one on the weekend and I'll come...and then expect to be graciously hosted at your apartment, of course.
@peachacid: Ha!! Wait, but where do you live? We could do a weekend meet up too for whover wants to make a road trip... We could have Bee WEEKEND with lots of fun activities planned!!
@redheadem: I did another online group meet up in...Salt Lake City, Utah...once. I am THAT awesome.
I live in Central Pennsylvania. My fiance is a huge Yankees fan, though, so we will potentially be in NYC in the spring...I'll just ditch him somewhere.
@redheadem: thank you for getting this going! I had so much fun meeting everyone the other day! Looking forward to the next one!
Ok, so I'll make a reservation for the next meet-up, and then whoever wants to take charge of December's meet up can volunteer next month. I think Cask was a good place to have it, but we can throw around other ideas (where was the meet up in September 2011? That was a good place too). I am all ears.
I'll make a reservation on November 8, five days before the meet up. Just try to let me know by then if you want to come so I can get an estimated head count. If you change your mind between 11/8 and the meet up date, 11/13 - either you decided you can come or you can't come - just let me know so I can tell the bar.
Woo! I'm glad we're doing this.
Are waiting bees welcome? If so I'm in. Midtown is easiest but of course I'm flexible.
@Krises: Of course they're welcome!!
Yay! I'm definitely in again! It was so nice meeting everyone at the last meet-up. Always good to talk about weddings nonstop without people's eyes glazing over. :)
I'm in! Happy to post on the blog before the next one too! Great idea to have it ongoing.
I'd love to come too!!
So sad I missed the one this week - didn't realize I had to check the local boards to find the meet-ups, I thought they were on the blog. But uh, makes kinda sense ;-)
Anyway I'm in! Yay!
And I hope everyone's doing OK after the storm.
@redheadem: I just got my power back on here in Jersey City! woot! But no heat yet (the pipes burst).
It's been a miserable few days: I hope everybody else is doing all right and staying safe and dry..
Unless the PATH opens up by the 6th, which I'm not sure about, looks like I have no way of getting accross to manhattan, though.. I know there's a ferry, but I heard it's so full of poor folks that work on Wall Street that I shouldn't even bother. boo.
My FI's family was hit super hard, we have spent the last four days cleaning their house on Long Island before we come home to our cozy Astoria apartment. They basiclaly lost everything. I'm so glad that we weren't too seriously affected so we have the energy to help.
@lotto: Yeah luckily Astoria wasn't hit hard. That's where we are, and life was back to normal on Thursday for us once the subway could take us to work.
Btw, I went to a cool bar last week - La Biblioteca and they have a pretty good happy hour. It's on 40th St and 2nd Ave. So let me know where we should have this. Does Cask work again or should we try somewhere new?
I don't read the blog so I don't know if this is completely inappropriate, but @Mrs. Hermit Crab: & @Mrs. Coyote: , could one of you post on the blog about the meet up once we have the place decided?
Again, we'll meet on 11/13, say around 6:00. I'll confirm the time once I make the reservation.
@redheadem: oh, good! for some reason I thought the next meet-up was tomorrow.. the PATH might actually be back up by next week!
I look forward to seeing all the bees again post-hurricane. Glad to hear you're all ok!
Hey NYC bees - I'm looking forward to seeing everyone next week. I am happy to post on the blog once we decide on a place. Also, I was wondering if you guys might be interested in doing a drive of some sort when we meet. I work for an organizing doing ongoing collections and I would be able to bring anything with me to work, as long as it's not too heavy. If you like this idea, I'll include it on the blog post.
@Mrs. Hermit Crab: Great idea! What are you collecting?
