Big Grin Dinner In Nyc 11/19 - The Final Thread!

I am going to ask to have this thread made into a sticky so it won't get lost among the many other NYC 11/19 dinner threads!

Our dinner destination will be Stout, located at 133 W. 33rd street (between 6th & 7th Ave). Our reservation is for 6PM - just ask for the Tivo Group.

Please, please bring cash - it makes settling the bill much easier!

Here is the website link if you want to check the menu:

www.stoutnyc.com

Thusfar, our attendee list is as follows:

Definite:

IndyJones1023
Peter000
Graymalkin
ellinj + 1
Mike2001
landrumdh
DTV TivoDealer
nyny523
DavidTigerFan
DeeDee
Animgif
RobPickles + RoseAnn
Inundated
Tivoslinger
pigonthewing
theinstigator
ILoveMyTivo

19 Total

Maybe:

Gregor
jradosh
KenDC
aindik
StrynBean
pcgrrll
JDHHutt25
Thaed (strong maybe)

I will need a final headcount by end of day Thursday, 11/17, as I need to confirm our reservation on Friday.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to PM me at any time.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 19th!

I see I'm still on the Maybe list, so just wanted to let you know that unfortunately I won't be able to attend dinner.

However, if you'd like to join me and a few others at an IMAX viewing of Harry Potter (before dinner, 2pm show), that'd be great! Here's the link to purchase tix through Fandango: http://www.fandango.com/MoviePage.a.../2005&mid=92065

I believe as of now, the attendees are:
Peter000
Mike2001
Robpickles +1
Miro127 +1

FYI, the theater is by Lincoln Center, which is a direct, quick subway ride away from Stout.

Here's the link to the original post: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-v...0&&#post3423370

Anyone have a guess as to what the noise level would be in the party room?

Mrs. tase2 is probably going to be a no-show as she is afraid she will not be able to hear anyone. It is sad but true, I probably should not have put her as a definite.

Tase, I was told that they were going to place us in the quietest room available (I explained we were a group that did not see each other often and wanted to talk). I honestly don't think it is going to be very loud. I really do hope both you and Mrs. Tase will attend!

For any out-of-towners still looking for a Hotel, I found a link to some NYC Hotels under $200.

Hope this is helpful!

Space on our floor can also be sold on a first come, first serve basis. We, too, will charge less than $200.

My floor is currently renting at $199.99/night with no tax and it'll likely be bigger than the options you are looking at currently =)

I've been to a few things at the Hudson Hotel...VERY swank and very nice. The Apartment (one of the rooms) has an AMAZING rooftop deck with spectacular views.

Well, you do have a considerably more conveniently located floor. We will have to undercut your price and offer free taxi-service in order to compete. We've got a sauna on premises though. No joke. Can you beat that?

He also would likely provide free shaving consultations.

Nope, work is handling that. They should have been bought already, though. I'll check tomorrow.

My sofa in New Jersey is available for Thursday night. But you'll have to share with Scully and possibly Mulder.

I have a bunch of rocks outside. I could bring them in, but I don't know if they're Japanese.

I do not have a pool table, but damn if it hasn't been for lack of trying. Or something.

But as for free wifi, we've got more than you can shake a stick at!

Ooo! I've got this one! I have no cats.

But then, I bet animgif doesn't have any either. Damn him and his better accomodations.

Well, I.. Uhmm.. I.. I have more Pink Floyd CD's!

Seriously, though.

For the work part of my week, I am staying at the Sofitel on 44th. Who is that more convenient to? Anim or Pig?

Anim is more convenient, since he's on the same island (Manhattan), reachable by subway or medium-priced taxi ride.

Pig requires at least a 30-minute trip (more likely an hour) through the Lincoln Tunnel, west on I-80 and north on Route 23 -- reachable by interstate bus or high-priced taxi ride.
