Hey you guys!

So halfway into the year and NYC ppkers haven't had a meetup yet. Is anyone up for something soon? I've found alot of new and interesting menus at places throughout lower Manhattan begging to be had.

I am available almost any day of the week, but since it's the summer, weekends might now work for everyone, so please post here what your availability is, what dates apply (if you're an out-of-towner) and where and what you'd wanna see. Let's make this happen!

I was thinking: Cinnamon Snail (Monday-Friday), Wild, crepes at Crepe Du Nord (I heard they just made a vegan crepe), Chloe's Soft Serve Co/Lula's, to get started.

Ah, what do you really really wanna try though, Torque? Since you'll be visiting from a very far place, it'd be great if we could stop somewhere you've been wanting to try.

i am open to anything and it's all good. i will be getting my favorite food fixes outside of NYC in the meantime [and here for a LONG TIME] so I'm more stoked about the company than the food [and, assuming i'll be taking public transit, for the beer.]-- any place will be awesome. FC may not grace us with her presence since she's in teenage rebel mode and i can't guarantee she won't be a total douchehat.

Weekends are best for me. This month the weekend of Saturday, 6/15 - Sunday 6/16, would work for me, as well as Sunday, 6/22. Please do keep us posted.

Whoops! The date that Sunday is 6/23, not 6/22. :$

Is there anyone more familiar with Brooklyn's offerings who might represent what other options there are outside of the city? I know MOB is another good option, but so much has changed and I hardly leave Manhattan at all anymore.

Okay guys, that sounds really good! I have a party next Saturday I think, so Saturday won't work for me as I will be in New Jersey all day (may be able to visit the wonderful vegan brunch in the other thread for $25 if anyone is interested). I'm going to wait for more people to respond to start making reservations.

Also, make sure you let me know if there will be kids included so I can try to find a suitable place, or if wheelchair access is necessary, or if gluten-free is necessary.

22 is GREAT for me as I have a wedding shower on 15th to get drunk at, I mean suffer through, I mean FML. But if that date doesn't work there's the whole rest of the summer.

also, just to write this down somewhere before I forget, we'd like to have a BBQ this summer at my house [same town as the For the Animals sanctuary, western NJ], I will make a separate thread for it but wanted to throw that out there. We have a LOT of space inside, people could camp outside, kid friendly, and thought we could maybe coordinate it with one of the sanctuary shindigs [obviously not the one this weekend]. There's public transport from NYC that goes out to Hackettstown and Dover and we could figure out rides from there.

YES. I want to meet you, Torque! I'm free this Sunday, 6/9 and I'll probably be in NYC most of pride weekend (6/29 and 6/30). Otherwise I'm free almost all of July and August. So I wouldn't be able to do the 22nd, but I'd definitely like to go to your proposed BBQ!
I could also do a week night if it's in brooklyn.

It seems like the weekend of 6/22 works for a few people, so should this be for 6/22, and are we talking lunch or dinner?

Unless there are lots of people available 6/9 to meet with Joyfulgirl too?

Nobody's gotten back to me, but are we good for 6/22?

Also, as you probably noticed in the dedicated thread, Lula's is still closed. A friend is trying to find out when so we can incorporate a stop there on our meetup!

didn't notice this thread happening until now. I would jump in but not the 22nd because of Mermaid Parade. Maybe there will be another meetup later in summer. Don't mean to derail that day for everyone else.

Does anyone want to rally together and go to Cupcake Fest in Rutherford on 6/22 if nobody can make it that weekend to NYC? We can postpone the meetup until the last weekend if that suits people still, and do the Cupcake Fest the weekend before.

What about the out of towners? I'd love to plan around you guys as much as possible, so does the 7th work?
