    Hey BHW...

    I'm still interested in organizing a meetup I discussed aaaages ago on here. There was some interest. It would be in Dec/Jan, not sure which month yet, and it would be in New York. Any ideas on where we should meet up? Somewhere classy please. Perhaps meetup for a dinner, and discuss our stuffs? :D

    I really want to do this guys, this isn't some pie-in-the-sky idea, so post your thoughts :)

    My thoughts... Dec/Jan is a bad time... Those are extreme holiday months for a lot of people. Jun/Aug, I think those are likely easier for most people.

    I agree, Dec/Jan is holiday/Family time. NY has really shitty weather in the winter, and flying around the holidays is always a clusterfuck. Most people have time they can take off in the summer, but already have vacations planned. What about labor day weekend? It's September 3 in 2012 so the weather won't be too bad and those of us that still have real jobs will have a 3 day weekend.

    If people want a time outside of Jan/Dec that is totally fine. You could always organise another meetup :) I live outside the states, and since I'm traveling to the states in Dec/Jan I want to organise one that I can actually attend :D

    Dec/Jan, in NY, in 2012 hoopla??? Ummm terrible idea. Airports jammed, security extensive, holiday travelers, probable snow storms, freaking out people about 12-21-2012.

    Let me know how it goes for you guys.

    Once again, I will not be moving it to another time, because then I can't attend :D you do not have to attend my small meetup, you could always attend your own!

    It will either be late december, or it will be late janurary. I am holding out for janurary :D

    I like the idea of the meetup, I am from NY and coffee sounds good so just depends on the day as I work the night shift. Hope some other members will consider coming as well.

    Time Square / 42nd street. Easy to find and I'll be there, then we can all go somewhere.

    Yep, that sounds good, Time Square is a central location to meet up. Mrnewbie, any ideas on a place we can go for coffee nearby?
