Hey New York crüe (you know who you are): I am going to be in New York next week and would love to have a little meet up. I will be staying up on 94th street, evidently across from central park (it's the Days INN broadway, I guess), but am pretty mobile. The only day I'm booked on is Thursday 4/15 but I'll be coming in from Baltimore on the afternoon of the 14th and staying through the afternoon of the 16th. Anyone wanna hang?

Maybe, depends on how the schedule looks for me at work.

Which day works better, maybe we can get everyone out for lunch on the 16th, or will you be there early enough for lunch on the 14th? Friday works better for me - less meetings on Friday then Wednesday if we are doing lunch. If we are doing early evening Wed or Thurs are better.

Or maybe after work on the 14th...

I was taking Friday off that week anyway - considering going out to Frostburg.

Will need the rest of the crue to chime in (and I will contact a couple on FB, who I know don't come here often - aka Steviespin and Yorrick)

Friday would probably be better. The Bolt Bus is scheduled to come in at 3:45. I figure with traffic and all that, it might be closer to 4:30 and then I've got to make it from Penn to my hotel on 94th. Drinks or dinner on Wednesday night would be doable too. I might have a meeting on Friday, but that's still up in the air (it's with a violinist I'm writing a piece for, and he wants me to use his electronics set up, so I need to check out his studio. I'm not sure whether or not it'll work out, though. Should hopefully know tomorrow). I have to be at Penn before 5:15.

So chime in, crüe.

So far it could be just 'Talos and me. Well, we could just call a time and place and leave it open for people to come if they can. What do you think?

I was planning on coming up, and talked to Steviespin on FB and he was planning on making it. I also contacted Yorrick on FB, haven't heard from.

I think what we did last time worked well - meet at 'Talos work establishment, grab some food and head to Central Park to eat...

Of course if Steve is coming from home he may just want to meet us at the park.

ETA - heard from Yorrick and looks like he is going to join us too. So now we just need to nail down plans for at least the 5 of us.

Well, it looks like the guy I was supposed to meet with on Friday is busy, so I'm free. Any time works, really. I could meet you guys for lunch then just hop on the subway to Penn station afterwards.

Unfortunately, I had to redo my schedule so that I could have the 17th off for the NECSS conference. If you are still around on the 17th I could meetup after the conference.

Well depending on the train schedule I am planning to be off all day, so I could come up a bit early and then we could meet the NYC peeps who have to work for lunch, I think last time we met at like 11:30ish. I too will be heading back to Penn, so we could maybe do that part of the commute together.

That sounds like a plan. 'Talos?

Sorry to have disappeared for a couple of days. I have a concert tomorrow night and I was on the road all day yesterday and working all day today. Gonna be a crazy rest of the month, in fact, but I'm glad this meet up will work. Huzzah!

I can be in the city anytime after 9:30 am if you want to hang out and do something (I am not sure what). I do plan to leave not too long after lunch as I am planning to drive to Western MD that afternoon.

I'll message Steve and Tony (Steviespin and Yorrick) to let them know the plan.

What time are we thinking for lunch?

Let's meet at Talos' place at 11:30 for lunch. I can meet up beforehand, though. There's one friend I'm still trying to coordinate with, but I may just stop by his place on Thursday after lunch (although my lunch appointment--the reason I'm coming in Wednesday and not Thursday--hasn't confirmed yet. UUUUGH!).

OK, I am flexible. Just let me know. I just can't get to the city before 9:30 or leave after 4 (unless I wait until after 7 which won't work), so I can pay the cheaper rate for the train - the non peak one.

We will play it by ear if/when you and I will get together - I don't need to know until Thursday night so I know what time to get on the train.

Rae-

My plans just got REALLY complicated when I inadvertently double booked myself Wednesday night. So I'll be arriving in the middle of the night then.

Which doesn't affect Friday at all, though. Why don't we plan on the 11:30 lunch date with 'Talos, Stevie and the rest of the gang? I'll be taking the Bolt Bus back at 3:15 so I'll need to head out to Penn Station with you as well, but I should use the morning to meet up with people I was meeting up with on Wednesday, cause I suck that way. Ugh.

No problem, just means I get to sleep in a little. And cool on heading back to Penn together - I am used to making that journey alone since everyone else heads the other direction usually, or to Grand Central - so it will be fun to have company.

I am so looking forward to seeing everyone.

Got it. I'll drop you both a line in the morning. I'm visiting a friend from college at 9 and then it's meet up time.

Sorry you weren't able to join us. Hopefully next time. Perhaps to see Ironman 2, not that I have seen the first one yet...I have a copy (thanks to Gryper letting me borrow her copy) just have to find the time to watch it. I have a few more weeks...
