    Good call Kevin -- I'm psyched! I had a great time at the last GTG, and I'm looking forward to seeing you guys again. We could meet up around 48th st, hit a couple of shops, then make our way west for some food and drinkage.

    Cheers!

    Sounds like a plan :hyper:
     
  4. Count me in.

    Yeah, it'll be good to see you again, Aram and Kevin.

    I have to work that day, but what time were you guys thinking of meeting, and at which place?

    May I add that even if you don't want to eat and drink, and just have a few sodas, it would be nice to meet as many TBers from the NYC area as possible.

    Come on people, let's do this. :hyper:

  5. Argh if this was 3 weeks later I'd be all over it. You caught me in the middle of finals weeks and so drivin' to the city ain't happening. Post pics and shtuff!
     
  6. I go to school with Indi86, if you guys can push the date back until Middle of May both of us would be in attendance... I have a warmoth deluxe five you guys could play. ;)

    I'm in. Any ideas what time so that I can start my scheduling for that day?

    and Aram....I dig your avatar! Brooklyn brewery rules.
    and then there's the Heartland on 43rd. Tracks in Penn station is excellent....and then there's...well you get the point.

    Bass Ale <------mispronounced in my opinion.

    Hey Groovecenter -- the 29th is just to plan the next get together...the actual GTG date will definitely be in mid-late May or later.

    Hey Novus -- not to speak for everyone, but we'll most likely meet in the early evening for the planning session.

    BTW, they also re-opened Times Sq brewery, in case you weren't aware....

    yeah, it's ok. If it sells good beer and the music isn't too loud, I'm easy.

    There are a few places clustered in the 40's off 9th -- Don Giovanni is a great Italian joint on 44th that's relatively inexpensive and we can sit outside. Joshua Tree is cool with me too -- that whole upstairs opens up, and it seems to have a pretty diverse menu. There are a few other places on 9th that come to mind, but I can't think of the names offhand -- if figure we can just bounce around and check out menus to see what everyone can agree upon (I'm pretty flexible myself...)

    7pm is great, I can be there by 6pm most likely (maybe i'll sneak into Rudy's before it closes if that's the case :ninja: )
