How was the meet-up?

I was a bit envious, imagining the excellent food in NY, which I still miss.

Well, it wasn't quite up to the standard of places like the one in the East Village that sells deep fried Twinkies, but I must say the cuban sandwich was great.

We did miss Reub and also wondered what would happen if Mathjak were to show up.

I may have to plan a trip to NYC just to meet up with everyone there.  It sounds like fun.

A fun time was had by all as we resolved the world's remaining financial issues. The solution to every potential problem is: adopt the PP.

And as usual, we directed the waiter to send the food bill to Craig and the booze bill to Medium Tex (and don't forget the 20% tip, guys!)  8)

Tyler,

Give us several dates.  If you are coming, we'll make the arrangements, and sooner than later.

For such an esteemed visitor…!!!

Early May sounds good. 

Be advised, we uptown folks are not sure the world exists below West 110th Street, Manhattan.  Goodasgold has suggested it does.

I was actually in the city that day, but shooting an interview for a documentary I'm making.  Would have been nice to say hi again, particularly now that the PP is doing well and not lagging like last year.  I said last time I was sticking with the 4x25 and I'm happy with the results of staying consistent so far!

Tom,

Suggest a couple of days.  Sundays are better.  There is a core who like to meet.

Was great to meet you last year.

Cheers.

Thanks bedraggled - likewise.  Unfortunately I live in CT and commute to NYC every day for work and life is just a little to hectic these days to be able to prioritize a meetup.  I keep my eye on the board and if one ever pops up on it's own that works out I'll make an appearance for sure.

Tom,

We have met weekdays.  Grand Central would make Goodasgold ecstatic (I think).

Let me know.  I CAN travel south of 110th Street.  We will see who else can make it.

After 5/2/16 works. 

Teacher vacation has arrived!  There is a God!

Excelsior!

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?
