NYC with rLr!
Posted: 01 May 2009 02:07 PM   [ Ignore ]

So as some—but apparently not many—of you know, we tried (and failed) to organize a Yankee game meet-up with rLr before he went on his Sherman-like invasion of our Southern states. That rather didn’t work out. But that doesn’t mean we can’t all get together, have a few beers and watch some baseball.

I will formally suggest May 22 at Tonic in Times Square. That is the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend, but does feature the Mets @ Red Sox and Phillies @ Yankees which I believe covers most (if not all) of the teams supported by NYC primates.

I’m open to other suggestions for date and venue, however. My bad dates are May 7-12, 20 and 26.

Major props to RB for organizing these gatherings.  You’ll not pay for beer as recompense.  That day works for me, as does pretty much any day in May.

I second May 22.  Although I was kind of hoping to go up to the Bronx for some hot hot Phillies action.

My bad dates are May 11 through 21.  I will be in die Schweiz.

Good job, RB. I plan to attend unless it becomes a family getaway day for the long weekend.


Out on the Web, people assemble into verticals of self-interest. They often speak only to each other. They become an echo chamber of half-truths, sometimes outright lies, without any real data points coming in. And so you end up with a sort of mass of people talking to each other, no one has read anything. No one knows anything. They’re talking about something that someone else read that read that read that. And we end up in a meta-world.

Have fun, guys.  I’m moving that week so a trip to the city is out.

rLr posted in the Lounge that he can’t do it and it will have to be moved back to July or August.
