Who would be up for Japanese pub night (alcohol completely optional) at Kenka, in St. Mark's Place on Thursday at around 8.30?

Cheap ramen, yakitori and assorted drinks. To put prices in this place in perspective, we were able to feed 7 people for under $60 (with tip) the last time we went here.

Bumped for people should come eat cheaply with me!

I will be at Kenka (see above) for dinner after my Japanese classes tomorrow. Company is, as always, welcome.

Hey.
I can swing by there, as long as it's not too late in the afternoon as I have another commitment tonight (Thursday, Nov 20th).

Also, while restaurants are fun, another cool place to meet during the winter is the 42nd street public library.

It's quiet, but not too quiet to talk and socialize, and it's very laptop friendly.
Anyway, let's keep this thread alive...

Sadly, I can't make it before 8:30 tonight, but we can reschedule for another time. Next week and the week after don't work too well (I'm going to be heading to fair India for Thanksgiving), but anytime after the 4th of Dec is good.

Tell me what you think!

Hm. I was thinking about coming this evening, but perhaps rescheduling would be better. I've been eating out a lot and not sleeping, both of which aren't remedied by tonight's meetup. A couple weeks from now?

My GOD. Someone other than Clintonius and me on the NY meetup thread?

I'm out of town until the 4th, and work will no doubt eat me alive when I get back... but of course I'm up for a meetup. Does anyone have any ideas for fun things to do in the new year?

Get insanely drunk and perform live reenactments of political goings-on from the previous year (bonus points if it happened on the same date)? In public?

Um...I'm on break until January 5th, so could do a meetup before then. But apparently everyone else can only do one after I go back to school? :P Great timing!

Works for me... I'm always down for meeting new people.

I need to carry out my annual wardrobe refresh early Saturday afternoon, but would be glad to meet up with others later on. What would you guys say to snacking/hanging out at S'MAC? Purposefully avoiding bars and such because I'm not sure of the ages of the people who are actually going to turn up.

COLLEGE HOCKEY: Princeton vs: Yale
Time: Sat 02/21/2009 7:00 ET
Tickets: $10

We will be consuming "Sprite Zero" during the game, and will then head up to Hoagie Haven afterwards for the greasiest, best sandwiches in the tristate area.

Oh wait, you say the Greasetrucks in New Brunswick are better? Well, I suppose we could go there as well. Because, you know, I live in New Brunswick. If you are too drunk to make it home, you are welcome to crash at my place.

This is a plan that cannot fail to be awesome. Bring friends! If the evening is deemed successful, we will repeat it for all remaining Princeton home games.

I can pick up tickets before the game to ensure that we all get in.

NB: Sprite Zero is actually vodka. Adults will not be in place to supervise young'uns, so if you are under 21 or don't like the company of friendly drunks, this is probably not the meetup for you. Never fear, we will definitely have some all-age/drink-compatible events at some stage down the road... I particularly liked Clintonius' scavenger hunt at the zoo idea.

Hey anytime in Februaury (and prolly after), anywhere in the city. Guess which borough Im from (SPOILER: Brooklyn)

So nice to be on a forum with people actually from NYC. Last forum I was on the only two people from here besides me up and moved (bastards, who moves away from the center of the universe,m by which I mean NYC of course not me <.<)

I'm not really into comics -- the last comic graphic novel I read was "Lost Girls" by the guy who wrote Watchmen.

But I'm always up for seeing newold faces. Anyone else in for this?

Right now I don't think I'll be going Friday (travel day, not sure how much I'll be able to see), so would def. be up for hanging out Friday night. Saturday, a panel I really want to see ends at 7:45ish pm (and I already half-expect it to run late), but later on is likely cool.

(And I'm not *that* into comics, either, I think it's mainstreamed considerably with all these superhero movies and there will be Big Movie Promotional Stuff as well as little promotional stuff/gamer stuff/panels about cartoons. And I like looking at art even if I'm not terribly familiar with somebody's work.)

Friday evening is boozit night at my boss's place. Apparently there are "53 bottles of beer and another 30 or so bottles of wine and scotch left over" from the New Years party she had.

Let's hang out Sat. night... while bars are cool, chilling at someone's place could be even better. I volunteer my place, but I know it's a "little" out of the way, what with it being in central NJ and all.

There is only one way to describe last night: great success!

Good times. Seriously, this needs to be repeated at some stage. Next home game is in the playoffs... anyone interested?

This isn't reeeeally a meetup, but oh well. I'm moving back to NYC! I am trying to find an apartment to lease starting May 1st. I figured I would mention it in this thread because if anyone knows of someone who's looking for a roommate, or someone who's leaving a really great cheap studio or 1 bedroom (probably in Brooklyn or Queens), I would love to hear from you!

Hey Lani... welcome back!

Like you, I'm on the prowl for an apartment somewhere in the city, although my timeline isn't quite as compressed as yours. Brooklyn is preferred, close access to red or green subways a bonus. Oh yeah... two bedrooms, because there'll probably be a roommate as well.

PM me with any leads!
