January “Slumming It” Meet-Up
Posted: 31 December 2008 08:37 PM   [ Ignore ]

So it has been suggested that our previous choice of venue for the NYC Meet-Up’s (Sparks, Keane’s) has unwittingly excluded our less well-heeled Primates. Being that thanks to the current economic climate our less well-heeled Primates is now all Primates, I suggest a more reasonable priced occasion.

So besides a relatively inexpensive venue, my only requirements are that they serve food of some nature and—most important—booze. I throw open the floor to suggetions.

There’s gotta be a liquor store-adjacent Burger King somewhere in the five boroughs.

Who would lash us into serfdom and would crush us with his might?
Is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?

Good idea, RB.  Tonik in Times Square was good, as was Mustang Sally’s by Penn Station.  Campbell Apartment in Grand Central is cozy.

I happen to like Campbell Apartment, but I don’t think a venue accurately described as “cozy” is really the place for we hooligans.

I’d vote for Tonic, but I’m open to suggestions.

Last week of January? I was trying to get a sense of people who were coming before we start throwing dates out, but how about…Wednesday the 28th?

Rich, your timing sucks, I’m in NY from 4 to 11 February. Any willingness for drinks some point during that week?

I’m happy to bump things back, since I’m not wedded to the date I pulled out of thin air back there. Anyone else?

5 Feb is a Thursday, always good to get drunk before the weekend…

I think I might might be able to swing by on the fifth.

2/5 works for me.

I can probably do that.  Did Dial say when he was coming to town?

Just don’t remind me of the exchange rate, OK?

I may have to bring the missus along as well.

What, is it too tough for you to get only $1.40 per ?1?

How does 6:30 sound to people for the 5th?

Posted: 20 January 2009 10:22 PM   [ Ignore ]   [ # 16 ]

$1.36…

Shooty is also in. I’ll track down MHS, and a few others. Oh, and I have gifts from Phil Coorey for the gang.

If you think I’ve been taking care of twin one-year girls for 3 months and not mentioned it, you’ve got another thing coming.

I’ve seen it. It is real, and it is spectacular. If you closely observe the picture of it, you will see stitches in the vicinity that faintly resemble those on a baseball. The man is pure horsehide.
