    So there's a confirmed twelve: Selenity, Lehki, Xena, Kaimanahi, Vhaedryn, Sylvanas, Sior, Lyora, Rancoura, Neos, Acrune, Kalaneya. Then I believe there's one or two more who are still checking with work or whatever. So I'd say 12-14+?

    12-14 in total...

    I know the following are coming for Saturday lunch:

    1. Selenity
    2. Lehki
    3. Lyora
    4. Rancoura
    5. Kalaneya
    6. Acrune
    7. Sylvanas

    Are you, @Kaimanahi, and @Xena both coming for Greek also?
  • KaimanahiKaimanahi The One True Queen Member Posts: 719 Transcendent
    Yes, you can assume that everyone I mentioned is coming for lunch and the day, unless someone says otherwise. I think only Sior may have a conflict in the evening.

    Holy crap. OK. I'll be calling Avlee between 3 and 5 PM EST to see if they can accommodate us.
  • VhaedrynVhaedryn Member Posts: 12 Novice
    If they can't, we can hit up the Greek place we went to last time in Manhattan: http://www.dafnitaverna.com/

    Well guys, you should add yet one more. Since I am in Philly, it shouldn't be too hard for me. I am good for Greek and later on. The Lion King not so much as I have already seen it. :(  See you soon. 
  • SelenitySelenity My first MC to stay in Serenwilde Member Posts: 1,425 Transcendent
    As I feared, our group is too large for Avlee. We need a new venue. I can't help much there. I don't know any places that are good to eat closer to the Gardens.
  • SelenitySelenity My first MC to stay in Serenwilde Member Posts: 1,425 Transcendent
    Double post to tag @Kaimanahi and @Kalaneya for ideas. Preferably somewhere not too expensive if you guys can think up something.
  • SelenitySelenity My first MC to stay in Serenwilde Member Posts: 1,425 Transcendent
    I just asked a coworker for an opinion on the matter, she suggested this place that specializes in Thai food but is Pan-Asian, supposedly can handle large groups: Spice. Right around the corner from Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. For a reservation of more than 10 people we'd have to call though. Alternatively, she suggested Faros which is further away from the Gardens, and more expensive than Avlee, but supposedly can easily handle groups of our magnitude.

    Thoughts?

    hot damn, lots of people. Not sure if they take reservations, but Chavela's is good. http://chavelasnyc.com/

    Does it have to be near the Gardens? If so, I'll take a look, I guess.

    It might as well be to cut down on travel times.
  • KalaneyaKalaneya Member Posts: 306 Gifted
    also, we should probably start taking a count for the evening as well since if we're going to have 12+ people for karaoke and dinner, we'll need reservations there too. will it just be Sior not coming along for the evening?
  • SelenitySelenity My first MC to stay in Serenwilde Member Posts: 1,425 Transcendent
    As of right now we still do not have anywhere to eat lunch. I'd also like to point out that you cannot bring food into nor picnic in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.
  • KaimanahiKaimanahi The One True Queen Member Posts: 719 Transcendent
    @Selenity - I think Spice could be a good choice, since it's close to the gardens. So that's now 13 for lunch. Alternatively, Sior suggested Smorgasburg, which could be ideal if we don't get a reservation, but we'd need to travel if we're still planning on going to the gardens (which isn't a big deal, I'd say).

    @Kalaneya - Sior is not coming for dinner, so that's 12 for dinner/karaoke. Did you want to look into reservations?

    For people interested in just chilling on Friday, a few of us are going to meet up when we get settled in ~5pm, maybe in Bryant Park? We were thinking Beer Authority (http://www.beerauthoritynyc.com/) at 7pm for dinner and can figure out whatever afterward.  We'll have a smaller group, so shouldn't need to worry about reservations there. Let me know if we should expect you, if you haven't already!

    Sunday's pretty open after we recover from hangovers... Five of us are going to Lion King at 3pm; dunno if anyone else was intending to go, but I think there's still seats in the row behind us on Stubhub.

    For dinner, Madangsui (Korean food) seemed reasonable, nearby, and able to accommodate 12 people. Asian food though, but I can try and go with something else if we don't want double Asian food day. Around 6:30pm?

    @Kaimanahi did Forren have any suggestions for karaoke places? If no additional suggestions, I'll give Duet 35 a call tmw and do a reservation for 12 since both Selenity and I have been. 8pm sound ok?
  • KaimanahiKaimanahi The One True Queen Member Posts: 719 Transcendent
    @Kalaneya that sounds fine to me!

    @Selenity feel free to make an executive decision on lunch, think we've had a lot of good suggestions.

    @Kaimanahi I'll try calling Spice later today, between 1 PM and 5 PM EST. If it falls through, I definitely would be AOK with Smorgasburg.
  • SelenitySelenity My first MC to stay in Serenwilde Member Posts: 1,425 Transcendent
    Contacted Spice and contacted Faros. No can do for our large group without at least a month's warning, Faros said. So it looks like it's going to be Smorgasburg, @Kaimanahi!
  • KalaneyaKalaneya Member Posts: 306 Gifted
    We're good for Madangsui for dinner at 7pm.

    Duet 35 didn't have any available rooms until midnight, which I figured was too late. I emailed Gagopa to see if they have availability, but if anyone has suggestions (@Selenity), now is the time. Could try some of the other Duet places (one on 48th and another on 53rd) as well if there's nowhere in Koreatown.

    I'd say try 53 and then 48 before we look elsewhere. All the other karaoke places I really know are sketchy af and outside of Manhattan.

    Plenty of Karaoke places in St. Mark's Place, near Soho (also conveniently located near night clubs). Also, A+ on the smorgasburg
  • KalaneyaKalaneya Member Posts: 306 Gifted
    Aight, made reservations from 9pm to 12am at Karaoke Duet 53. Can use the B or D train to get there after dinner. In case you're like me and forget your ID everywhere you go, everyone has to be 21+, so please bring your ID. It's a 2 hr minimum, so if you guys think we won't need 3 hrs, let me know and I can switch it. Midnight is generally the time parties get into full swing, so I thought that would be a decent amount of time in case anyone wants to go to nightclubs after.

    And YES SMORGASBURG :D

    Oh wow. I did not realize this was happening. I'm in Boston, and should have been more organized! Alas. Have fun, take millions of photos, and come play with me and @Drocilla when she comes to town later this summer!

    And oh god. I'm missing @sior? Life is a cosmic joke. 
    Do you love my adorable avatar? I have the wonderful Feyrll to thank for that! See if she's still taking commissions so that you, too, can be rendered as a baby!
  • KaimanahiKaimanahi The One True Queen Member Posts: 719 Transcendent
    Let's meet on the corner of Kent and 7th at 11:30 for Smorgasburg. PM me if you need my number.

    @Lisaera just jump on a bus real quick. :)
