well they have a happy hour 4-10 mon-saturday so we could have a little happy hour there and then move on to wherever we're gathering up. $2 beer is not bad.

Friday evening seems like a good time to go there. Anyone else down for that?

They're pretty stiff on carding, so be prepared ;) But that sounds awesome. Can't wait to see everyone (though I'll likely only be able to come out for Friday night).

Thanks again, Gory, for setting it all up.

According to their website its 18+ till 10pm then they boot anyone under 21, i figure if we do 6-8ish or something we can avoid the dinner rush, use their happy hour prices and just hang out and then go elsewhere when it starts to get too crowded or loud. From what i recall from the last time i was there, they are rather strict on dress code, like its not dressy but 'smart'. So maybe just showing up in a newgrounds shirt and tattered jeans wont cut it. I was probably gonna do that free beer coupon shit for the tie thing on just friday anyway so that may work out in our favor anyway.

I refreshed the Hub page again. This time it has the meet point / times added in.

I may go up to NYC next week to scope out the venues before adding them onto the hub. So probably one more update next week and that should wrap it up.

I'm never really active on the boards here, but I'm in NY. And it would be nice to meet some ppl from NG. So I'll probably go out to this on Saturday when I'm not working.

The more the merrier. Well. Unless you plan on sticking your dick inside somebody. In that case, it's a case of how fast can we get this meet on the road?

I hate to say this, but it's now unlikely I'll be able to go at all.
I've just been charged with a DUI and have to see how court treats me. At worst a month of Jail time and a year without my license. At best a few hundred dollars in fines and 12 hours mandatory incarceration. Even if I get minimal penalties, the fines would easily deplete my funds for this month (and a few to come.)
If things change I'll let you guys know.
Fudge.

I'm going to re-evaluate the meet itinerary soon and there might be some major changes...just a little heads up.

Also, sucks to hear about your DUI, Baron.

1. I just recently (saturday) went to the museum of sex for a school trip and it has CHANGED FOR THE WORSE! Don't go. I really don't recommend it at all. They have an aphrodisiac bar downstairs and an exhibit on animal sex upstairs but that's about it. They've removed a bit of the exhibits and even the items in the gift shop.
2. I think this would have excelled more if you held it during spring break
3. maybe we should have a round 2 during st. patricks day? that's when im going to the city haha

Everyone pay attention.

For the karaoke aspect of the meet on Saturday the 26th, I booked us all a room from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at an all-ages karaoke bar. The cost is $6/person/hour, and since I booked 2 hours, that means each person must pay $12 in cash.

Even if you plan on only staying for one hour, or not singing at all or whatever, you still must pay $12 in full. Last year during karaoke, a number of people slithered away like snakes before it came time for all of us to pay. That can't happen this year, and to prevent that from happening again, we'll try to collect the money prior to actually entering the bar. It's all-ages, BTW. Many karaoke bars in the city have a 21+ age policy, but not this one, and alcohol is of course served to people that are old enough.

You are allowed to bring in food from outside, but not drinks from outside. The lady on the phone told me that and I thought I'd mention that here.

Here's the address:

Karaoke DUET 48
304 East 48th Street
New York, NY 10017

Also, I just updated the Facebook event page for the meet.

I posted my phone number there publicly for anyone that doesn't already have it. Most people already do, but if you're one of the few that didn't until now, well, there you go.

Where will most of the users be hanging around in the hours before the meet?

I know in the Toronto meet Luis and a few others were chillin' in the Hotel lobby.

The flight I priced out (haven't purchased, yet) arrives at 6:10 in the morning, leaving me with plenty of time to kill.

I guess I could just check into my hotel room, which I also have yet to book.

Are most people staying at the Grace Hotel this year?

Funny, an opportunity fell into my lap an hour ago for a trip up to New York on the 25th of February. Of course, at the time I had 0 reason to go to New York. I walked back to my room, got on my computer and checked the BBS and what do you know? This thread pops up.

I can't 100% confirm I can go though considering I just told my ride there that I wouldn't be going, not to mention there are some things I need to clear up with prior obligations, but I'd really like to think I'll be there. Sorry, I know how annoying it is to be planning something with someone not committing to it.

I've been wanting to go to a meet-up for years now. Hoping this one works out.

I should probably buy a NG shirt to wear...
