Seriously, if the birthday thing turns out to be on Sat night, find out what time. We are starting very early by NY standards, so you guys might be able to join us for a couple of hours before the birthday party (if it is in NY).

REMINDER TO ALL MAYBES!!!!

I need a final headcount by Thursday morning so I can confirm our reservation. All you maybes, please just give it up and join us - you know you want to!

Either post here or PM me to let me know if you are attending and not on the definates list already.

Also, if someone would like to appear as a mystery guest, you can PM me and I will keep your secret - I swear. I just need to know how many seats to reserve!

Thanks everyone!

I want to join, but it doesn't look good. I guess this will plant me firmly in the "no" list. Indy, enjoy NYC!

I am bumping you back to definates - you will certainly be there for at least an hour or more, so you guys will need a seat!
Glad you can make it, even for a while!

The 2nd NY meet, the closest they'll be to me, and I still can't make it! It's Harry Potter weekend, I'm working till 5, the train station is 20 minutes away from there, and I don't have the cash. I need to get a new headlight for my car so it can pass inspection (and you know, so I can see at night), windshield wipers because mine just suck, and I need to make my measly minimum wage paycheck last 2 more weeks after that.

Sorry guys, but have fun!

Yep next time.

I really wanted to go but they've really been hammering us lately with work. This weekend everyone wants to get everything done before thanksgiving and also before end of year so basically we're all screwed.

OK Gang - we are confirmed!

Our reservation is confirmed at 6PM for 18 - they will be setting up 2 tables for 10 people each right next to each other in a party room, so we should be able to mix and mingle easily. This also allows for the addition of 2 more people if we get any last-minute folks (and we can always squeeze if more than 2 show up!).

The reservation is under "Tivo", and they will seat you as you arrive - please try not to be late. I will try to get there early to meet and greet, so if you want to show up before 6PM, that shouldn't be a problem (they have a nice bar area, too).

Reminder - please bring cash. If anyone has any questions, just PM me. FYI, if you need to reach me after 5PM on Friday I will have no internet access, so call me on my cell (my number is on Mike's list). If you haven't given Mike your contact info, please PM him.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday!!!

Just a question here, sitting in a hotel room in Indiana...(don't ask)...

It looks like I will be driving in during the day on Saturday. I will really, really try to be close to on time, and leave early enough, but I'm driving in from Ohio...so please, cut me a lil' break if you can

Oh, the question. What's an easy train station to drive into, park easily, and take the train to Penn Station? (As I recall, that's just a short walk from Stout.) Free parking at the train station would be good, but anything that isn't a huge amount would be OK as well. I'm mostly looking for convenience. Easy to find, and close enough so it's not a 3 hour train ride or anything, and in a safe area.

I haven't gotten a place to stay yet, but that's secondary...I can drive to it wherever it is.

(Not sure if Mike has my cell number, so I'll PM...I'm pretty sure Sheryl does...)

Not that this helps really, but I know the Metro North station near me is free parking on weekends.

Thanks for the input tho

Talking to some friends, I've decided to take my chances and go for parking down there. The timing just wouldn't work, anyway, as I'm driving in directly...

There's a Park & Lock on 42nd Street, between 11th and 12th Ave (on the north side of the street). That's my favorite place to park -- central location, reasonable prices, you park & lock it yourself (so you have easy access to go back to it to unload purchases )

If I'm not mistaken, that's quite a hike or a subway ride to Penn Station.

I know someone drove in and parked at the last NYC get-together, so it shouldn't be too difficult on a Saturday evening.

Now, if only I'd go to bed...

True, but it's usually made up by the cheap cost of parking there versus the well-overpriced cost of parking most anywhere else (excluding typically insecure street parking).

Okay guys... I hate to be the prodigal son of NY meets, but I just shifted around my work stuff so it turns out we can make it.

Is there still room for us? (splendid and I?)

On my way in the next hour or so. It's been a long time since I drove into NYC, but it's possible I'll be cutting it close, and will show up sometime during the 6 PM hour. Please cut me some slack...I'm not exactly driving in from across town.

See you all tonight!!!
