New York City Meetup: October 30th


That’s right folks: I decided I hadn’t torn up New York City enough the last time I went through there, so I’m coming back for one night only! If you want to experience what it’s like getting sexually harassed by hipster girls, being thrown out of bars for being tipsy, vomiting on diner bathroom floors, and crossing the Williamsburg Bridge on foot at five in the morning while hungover, this meetup is just for you!

Kid Strangelove and I are planning another meetup for this Thursday, October 30th. Goldmund has already confirmed that he will be showing, and I’ve also reached out to a few other folks to invite them. Any and all are welcome to attend. While I hope that this meetup will be a little less anarchic than the last one I had in New York, given some of the folks I hang out, who the hell knows what’ll happen?

1. When will the meetup be?

October 30th. It will start at 9:30 pm and go as long as the bars stay open or no one gets arrested.

2. Where will the meetup be?

I will announce the location on Twitter (as well as my private Facebook account) at 5pm EST on Thursday. The venue is located in the East Village. If you have my phone number, follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook, message me and I’ll tell you.

3. How will I recognize the guys at the meetup?

I’m one of the most recognizable guys in this part of the Internet! Just look for the snappily dressed bald guy.

4. Are girls allowed?

Only if you’re young, attractive, skinny and come with the explicit purpose of sleeping with at least one male attendee.

5. This sounds like it’ll be a huge sausage fest! Are any of you losers gonna get laid?

I’d ordinarily say no, but half the guys who went to the last meetup got laid, a couple unintentionallyso fuck it, I can’t say.

6. Why are you holding the meetup on a weekday?

Because Thursday is the only day I’ll be in town. Additionally, the last meetup was a bit too hectic for my tastes. I love all of y’all, but I’d like to be able to talk to each of you for more than a minute each. By announcing the meetup six days in advance and holding it on a weekday, I hope to make things a bit more manageable.

7. Why are you holding the meetup so late?

Because I’ll be at a music show from 6:30 to around 8:30 that night. If you have my phone number and are into art rock/cabaret jazz, text me and I’ll tell you where the show is so we can get a head start on drinking.

8. How the hell do I get to New York if I’m from out of town?

By plane, train or automobile. Check the logistics info in this post; it’s still up to date.

9. Can I buy you a drink?

Yes, but only one. Drinking too much too fast was what got me kicked out of the bar last time.

10. Didn’t you just rip off these questions from Roosh’s Washington, D.C. meetup post?

Yes, because imitation is the best form of flattery.

If you’re interested in coming to the meetup, drop me or Kid Strangelove a line via email (mine here, his here) or Twitter (mine here, his here). Hope to see you there!
