Would TBers in the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany/Schenectady/Troy, Ithaca/Binghamton, Scranton, and maybe even Catskills areas be interested in a get-together sometime this fall? I'm not sure if I could host it, as my place in Ithaca isn't particularly big and is in a "quiet" building (law students and engineering PhD candidates), and an otherwise excellent space at Cornell--which I could get quite easily--does not allow alcohol on the premises. (If this isn't a problem, I could definitely set this up.) Any takers? Ideally, it'd be in either Ithaca or Syracuse, as those are more or less central to the region.
