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

Post by bedraggled » Sat Jul 02, 2016 7:46 am

All in favor of another NYC meet up, please state your interest!

The "Core Four:" Sophie, Goodasgold, Barrett and Bedraggled know where to find the uptown places. And I didn't try the Mimosa at "Next Door" on West 187th Street. Kismet, the Indian restaurant, around the corner, has been around for 30+ years but they have jacked up their prices relative to others. I think they introduced a lunch buffet. Might be good.

181Cabrini was OK, too. Consider Strokos for the pizza and Diet Coke fans.

BTW, this won't be on 4/17/16. Can someone fix the heading?

Sounds fine to me. BTW, my mailbox has filled up, so I currently cannot read or respond to PMs on this list.... :-\

OK, Sophie,

Choice 1, Le Cheile (this place still OK, Sophie?) or

Choice 2, 181 Cabrini (our last meet).

(If you folks demand Indian food, let me know).

What's your schedule, people? Are Sundays good this summer?

Would be good to meet AdamA. The return of Tom & Co. would be equally appreciated. The date may be decided by the "Core Four," i.e., "What's Barrett's scheduling? * **
* CraigR, MediumTex, 182Start and Mark Leavy are, of course, welcome.
** MG, PS and TennPaGa are expected.

(We did have a decent summer meet last year over pizza but choices 1 and 2 seem OK).

Le Cheile is lovely. I think the group voiced the opinion that Next Door was better than 181 Cabrini, because they didn't try to hurry us out. Fewer customers can be a good thing.

On Fathers Day, "Next Door" gave me a bottle of Stella when I expected a pint but that may be my problem. And Next Door was not too crowded.

So, let's revise:

Choice 1: Le Cheile (West 181st Street @ Cabrini Blvd),

Choice 2: Next Door (our original place, West 187th off of Ft. Washington).

Chime in on nearby Indian food but….

Does Sunday work? There are 4 more Sundays in July. 1 PM is our last meet time.

Weekday, near Grand Central starting around 7:30pm would really be the only time I'd be able to make. But totally don't plan it around me.

Tom,

Thanks. Maybe Goodasgold and I could get there as we Two may have more flexibility than Sophie.

We will still meet with Sophie uptown as plans unfold.

Barrett may find Grand Central Terminal convenient. Chime in, Barrett.

Anyone else for Grand Central Terminal? MachineGhost? PS? TennPaGa? Tech?

Grand Central itself is not a particularly fun meeting place. Tom can you suggest a place that manages to be a bit less pricey/noisy than usual? Or, what about someplace in Koreatown, if people are up for seriously authentic Korean?

My schedule may not permit getting to that area by 7:30pm, but if that ends up being the group consensus I'll do my best.

Literally a stone's throw from Grand Central (on Park Ave., I believe) is one of those indoor "public meeting places" peculiar to NY City. I know it has that essential prerequisite for us old-timers, a restroom. Tomorrow I will go there to verify availability, hours of operation, etc. It might be a good alternative to noisy Grand Central.
