The time and the place

Am I the only person on the internets who still finds “meat up” funny? The only one who still finds “the internets” funny? The only one who still says “w00t”?

Anyway, it’s come to my attention that some West Coast Whatsiters are going to be in New York tomorrow, so we’re having a hastily organized meetup, our first ever. 8 p.m. Friday at (where else?) Fresh Salt, 146 Beekman in the South Street Seaport neighborhood (behind The Gap, basically).

All are welcome — commenters, lurkers, whatever. If you’re coming and don’t think you’ll recognize us, give a heads-up in the comments or drop me an email and we’ll work something out. If this is too last-minute for you but you’d otherwise like to come, let me know and we’ll plan another meetup for the near future.

    That would be Beekman between Front and South (cab directions). And don’t worry, even though Front Street has gone all Tribeca, there’s still an invisible line at Beekman that keeps the tourists over on the Gap side and away from the bar.

    Well, after 8pm they’re usually gone anyhow. I went with a girlfriend a few months ago and there were a few businessy stragglers drunkenly forcing us to laugh at their jokes. Seriously, they wouldn’t leave until we choked out a laugh. It was pretty horrible.

    But yes, a lovely bar. I’ll try to come by!

    Oh, man! Just dangle that out there for those of us who can’t make it.

    Have fun all the same. Plus, don’t forget to take pictures!
