*** NYC PP Meetup - 4/17/16 1 pm @ 181 Cabrini ***

Post by goodasgold » Wed Sep 02, 2015 6:21 pm

In the current (very turbulent) investing environment, now may be a good time for PPers in the New York City area to get together and compare notes.

Is anyone interested in getting together, perhaps this weekend? If so, what are a good day and time to do so? And how about a place to meet?

Though this place might seem appropriate given the sentiment of more than a few here, I would recommend a different venue.

I clicked on it because I thought it might be a place like the Blue Hair-guana, but it was just a guy looking over the edge of a building.

Labor Day weekend is not the best for HBPP philo chats.

The Mark Leavy "get on a plane and go somewhere" philosophy is currently implemented, anyway.  Then back to the salt mines next week.  Are there salt mine stocks that may be put in a variable portfolio?

I believe that the proprietors of this site have started a new salt mine stock forums and are writing a book on the subject. ;)

There may be a salt mine ETF.  If so, there may be a junior salt miners ETF like GDX.

Didn't we see Charleton Heston work the salt mines in Spartacus?  This group has a history that, no doubt, appeals to Buffet.

Good one!!  But I hope the next PP gathering will be just slightly more upbeat than that.

This weekend actually isn't a terrible idea for those of us who aren't going to be out of town.  I'm in if enough people are interested.

Here's the place I was trying to remember the name of last time:  Le Cheile on 181st/Cabrini Blvd.  Super friendly, great bruschettas, and they always seem to have a deal on some form of booze.  http://www.lecheilenyc.com/index.php

I'm available this weekend if anyone else is. I would prefer the evening, but something can be arranged if an earlier time is preferred. Le Cheile sounds good. Sophie, please PM me if the details need some work.

Barrett thinks Friday, 4/15 works.  I imagine that would be 5PM or so.

Sophie's schedule needs to be accommodated.  Seems we will be uptown at 168th Street or maybe 181st Street.

Pizza?

Let's chime in.

Thanks.

Would love to meet you guys, but will be out of town.

Pour some out for me!

Friday would be great.  Disappointed to miss AdamA though.

Who else is coming?
