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.

I MIGHT come for Saturday.

Got nothing better to do anyway, and I live only a few minutes away.

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...

Well, It's earlier this year, but I would say It's about time. I might come again this year. Hopefully more people stick around for the third day, instead of leaving. Either way, It would be good to see you guys again.

Ha ha ha. You say 'damn near' as if there's any possibility of NOT doing that when you're singing karaoke. I was several drinks deep by the time I got behind the mic. Didn't help that I was with the group of the first 5 people to arrive so I got my drink on at the karaoke place.

Anyway... it'd be great to attend and all, but my car can't make that drive like it could last year and I won't actually have ownership of my new wheels until after that weekend. Also: February is a terrible month for this meet. Much better to trend CLOSER to summer than away (last year was March and during torrential downpours).

Have fun y'all. Perhaps next year.

Whoever shows up with the speakers at the train station:

Play this or die.

Response to New York City Meet-up 2011 2011-02-18 17:00:48


My ideal flight has disappeared off the list, and all the others are about $150 CDN more. Therefore it's clear that I'm not going.

Will there be a second one this year?

I could go.
I just wanna know first though, will there be weed?

I'm assuming you mean dandelions, because anything else would be sort of not cool to seriously discuss on the boards in the context of actual people meeting in an actual place where they could actually run afoul of the law, ya know what I'm saying?

And since it's February I doubt there will be dandelions but I'm sure if you really wanted to see some someone at this meet could find you some, savvy?

There will be legal age responsible drinking (and by that, I mean throwing up on the sidewalk, not your friend's shoes) but not much else in the way of intoxication.

My Canadian passport expires in July. Will they still let me in if I do end up going?

Since it expires in July, long after the meet, absolutely.

Also, 4 more days until Friday. Over the next few days, I'm probably going to post some critical information and reminders relating to the meet in this thread. I'm also about to head out to do a quick survey of bars/restaurants/other places in Midtown we can hit up for the meet.

So right now I'm broke. I'm not sure if I get paid on Friday, but if I do I'll more than likely make my way down to NYC for this shindig. Fucking pisses me off though that NYC got rid of the all-day fun passes for the subway.

Fuck you Bloomberg.

Fuck your shit.
