    NYC meet-up?

    Is anyone interested in trying to get something organized? We could try to arrange something before everyone gets too busy with the holidays. We could do dinner, any suggestions?
    The ice rinks are open at both Rockefeller Center and Bryant Park...would anyone be interested in going skating?

    I live in Vancouver too but I'm hoping to get out to NYC again in January so I can at least skate at Rockefeller Centre. It's cheaper in January and February (by that I mean hotels, etc. not the actual skating). I hear December is the most expensive time for NYC.

    I'm always up for a FSU meet... but it probably won't work out for me unless we wait til after the new year. (And unless it's a weekend.)

    I'll be up there December 9-11th.
    If ignorance is bliss, I'm overjoyed.

    I would attend, I would eat, I would skate! You all could observe my horrible skating technique!

    Wolman might also be nice. But the nice thing about Bryant Park is that other than skate rental for those who need it, the skating itself is free. Rock Center is iconic, though. The best maintained ice is probably Wolman. Obviously, I'd be happy at any of them!

    As for timing - I live a good hour outside the city, so probably a weekend would be best, or a Friday evening.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    I don't skate, but I'd be happy to take pictures of those who do. I'm with Belle though, a weekend is really the only time that works for me. Maybe a pre-Nats gathering if December is too busy?

    I'm always happy to eat, too; but I can't recommend places. I usually just eat at Wholefoods or at the school cafeteria when I'm in town.

    I'm in NYC Jan 27-29 (pretty much booked for MetOpera) and possibly Jan 13-16 as well. I'll be following this thread if anything is happening those weekends.

    I just posted in the other NYC thread, maybe we should plan for January instead?

    January is also fine for me, because I live around the city. I think that Jan also tends to be less busy for people, as it's after the holidays. And the rinks are still open at that point, for those interested.

    Right now, January is pretty wide open for me... would love to see my FSU friends for the first time in ages and meet some new people too!

    I'm in. I vote Bryant Park (since I have my own skates). Let me know the date when it's finalized. If it's a weekend, it's better to go in the morning, the evenings are a zoo.

    I have had "have a drink at the Campbell Apartment" on my bucket list for ages. (It's inside Grand Central Station) If anyone would like to meet for a drink there some Friday evening, post here or send me a PM. I am dying to try a Prohibition Punch.

    I'm in. I've been saying I want to go in the city for ages and this would be the perfect chance.
