NYC Meet - Spring 2017

KaimanahiKaimanahi The One True QueenMember Posts: 704 Transcendent
On a tipsy subway ride with a certain ur'Guard, I volunteered to rally an NYC meet for the springtime. Here it is. I'm going to throw out a tentative date for the May 19-21 weekend, with maybe Saturday May 20 as the actual meet for day-trippers. We can work out the details based on availability and interest (and if you play in Magnagora).

Drop a comment if you're considering coming and if that date would work, or suggest alternatives. It's a little far out so that people can arrange for flights and accommodations in advance, so let's try to nail down the date sooner rather than later. Getting an estimate on how many people could be there would also help for planning group outings.

NYC is great. Lusternians are great. Meets are great. Everything is awesome.

    I'm a firm maybe depending on work schedule. Where in NYC?

    Ugh it's so hot in July! You also play in Magnagora, so your opinion doesn't matter. But really, we could move it, or... have another one?

    I could possibly make it. I always have weekends free, and it's been a bit since I've been to one of our meets. No laser tag, though, I don't think I can take the Celestian assault again :'(

    I'm okay with moving it, the date is not amazing for me (I'm done with school on May 11th but I might have exams up until that week, we'll see.)

    Jk! I'm def coming but don't move the date just for me!

    @Tremula How dare you not want to throw yourself in the line of fire for me? I thought we had something special.

    I will most likely be flying in with Lyora, as long as my passport clears in time (it's been a while since I've travelled, eesh). Looking forward to wine and martinis with some new faces! :)

    I'll consider make a weekend of it if @Xena comes. Or maybe if @Ixion comes.

    I need to check on our availability, but count that certain Ur'Guard as a tentative yes.

    Only 10 more years and my parental responsibilities will be near an end. Then I will try to talk the husband into meeting internet strangers in strange cities.

    I miiiiight be able to make it.  Depends on a LOT of factors  - The biggest one being MONEY.  I've forked out a LOT of cash so far on my visa application and am expecting to fork out around USD$1,500 more before I officially become a resident (Assuming my visa is even approved and me and my fiancee end up getting married like we currently intend.  A lot can happen in 4 months.)

    Firm yes if the final date is around then.

    I'll make an appearance, I suppose. This is my stomping ground, after all. Just let me know if it's July or May

    Is this still a thing? I might take an hour and a half trip to the lesser borough to say hi to y'all and hang for a while if so. I still live in NYC. Just not near the chaos that is Downtown.

    It's a thing... that I've been neglecting. So since there weren't strong opinions otherwise let's nail down May 20th as the date. If anyone is local there and wants to suggest restaurants/nightlife spots in Manhattan for the meet, feel free to post or PM me.

    May 20th looks like it's going to be gorgeous in terms of temperature.
  • XenaXena Member Posts: 90 Master
    May 20th should be doable by me :)

    I'm not sure if I can, due to scheduling, but I'll try. It would be a daytrip situation, if so.

    I already had DC on the books for June Pride, sadly, otherwise I would go!

    PS If you're in DC for Capital Pride, let me know!

    I just bought my plane ticket to NYC. I'll be there 5/19 - 5/22. Hopefully see some of you there! :)

    So I've got the 20th off secured. So are there any solid plans set up yet or do we need to start throwing out ideas?
  • SelenitySelenity My first MC to stay in Serenwilde Member Posts: 1,424 Transcendent

    I was thinking of the following itinerary myself for the 20th:

    1. Lunch at Avlee Greek Kitchen at 11:30 AM to whenever we're done nomming
    2. 30 minute ride on public transport to get to Brooklyn Botanical Garden
    3. Mosey about there for a few hours
    4. Ride into Manhattan to eat dinner *somewhere*
    5. Karaoke in Manhattan *somewhere*

    ---

    Edit:

    Figure you spend between $8 and $60 (if you're being ridiculous) plus tax and tip at Avlee. Brooklyn Botanical Garden is $15. Dinner will probably be $20-$75 wherever we go in Manhattan. Throw on $9 per hour per person for karaoke, say 3 hours of karaoke, easy $30. You'll need at least 5 fares on your metrocard for getting around, so that's $14.


    This itinerary would cost anyone hopping along between $87 and $194, depending how extravagant that person wants to be.

    No one ever wants to have these in Texas :(
