I'll be at NYCC on Friday; Friday night, Alexis and I have tickets for the Animaniacs Burlesque show, with Rob Paulsen, if people wanted to join us:

I'm curious.... and simultaneously repulsed at the idea of mixing childhood television and burlesque.

And that is exactly the right attitude to have going into this sort of thing!

Bumping for Tuesday. I'm gonna try and get to the con by 2 PM at the latest, gotta get Dan Slott to sign one of my books, and then this year, i'm actually going to remember to GO to a panel. I KNOW.

Anyone else planning to make the trip? Or just we three?

I'll be there on Friday, but getting together after just isn't in the cards for me.

Ker-BUMP!

We haven't had a good one of these in AGES people. Are you all telling me, now that the weather isn't sucky, that we can't find a day where at least 5 or 6 GWJers can get together in NYC for a drink and a meet-and-greet? Those West Coast schmucks are KICKING OUR BUTTS!

This is the point where we start making suggestions and coming up with ideas, like another jaunt to Dave & Buster's, a meet-up at the NYC Comic-Con in the fall, a daytrip to the Intrepid Museum, or whatever. There's got to be something.

I just boosted the signal on twitter to most of the NYC area goodjers that I follow. I'd be up for anything most weekends in the next two months - the weekends of May 24th and May 31st being the exceptions.

http://nerdyorkcity.com/ has a bunch of events going on, if we want to plan something around one of those; otherwise, we could just find a nice bar, bring a couple of boardgames & hang out

I am game for EVERYTHING. At least until the babby comes.

+1

I'd be down for something as well. Maybe we can find a babysitter so my wife can come out too. I believe the only weekend I can't really do anything (besides this coming weekend) is Memorial Day weekend.

+1 - I know a bunch of guys in IRC are in the NYC area, I'd love to meet up with people and attach faces with names!

Figuratively, not literally. Although nametags on faces would help.

Baby Castles is co-hosting a playtest event at Eyebeam in Manhattan next weekend:

I got a radio message in my fillings and came in here. Love to see / meet you guys. I am interested in boardgames and outdoor drinking.

I was apparently looped in to the Twitter summonings, but seeing as most of you folks are unable to meet on Memorial Day Weekend I was keeping quiet. That's pretty much the best weekend for me to make the journey up to NYC.

Totally interested just not on Memorial Day Weekend. Hell, I would do it after work on a weekday.

Bump - I'd be good for starting at the Babycastles thing, and maybe going to a bar or dinner afterwards. Can we get a consensus? The date is 5/18

That date works for me, as far as I know!

Bumpy-bump; so far I'm in, T-Prime's in for Saturday at Eyebeam - anybody else?

I think I can I think I can

Can't make it, unfortunately. Have fun!

Looks like I'm cleared for takeoff.

Frak. I forgot all about this. tl;dr, what time and where exactly?

I'll try to be at Eyebeam at 2:00 (540 w. 21st, in Manhattan)

'Twas a good time, even if it was only Tangle, Slumber and myself. The playtest meeting was actually really cool. We got to play 3 different in-development games that independent and student programmers are working on.

Then Slumber and I subjected Tangle to endless baby talk.

And after Chinese food, I randomly ran into my Aunt, as I was walking to the bus

Also, here's nel e nel and a non-GWJer playing one of the games:

I should be able to do Saturday.

I don't think there are any plans for this Saturday yet.

I was busy building a bicycle and then consequently dying from trying to ride it (a combination of bad allergies and not riding a bicycle in years) prevented me from this one.

Next one I'll be sure to add to the calendar! And not die.

Glad to hear this got at least a little traction early. Can we try for another? Perhaps in July?
