NYC vegweb party!! be there or be square!!
Also, Baypuppy might be coming to town to do a meet and greet and thesis signing. But she's not promising anything yet. She said she'll have her agent get back to us to see if we can come to agreement on the details.
What am I being counted for? I'm a NYC vegwebber...
a vegweb NYC party, of course 8)
I'm a long island girl (40 minutes from the city).
gb goes to school in NYC, i believe. i met her at the last boston thingie.
i will change it. it will be awesome
Oh sweet!! When is this party??!! I certainly do not want to be a square...even though squares a cool :) I live in Queens and work in the city so I can totally make it :D
Date? Location and Time plx! I am about an hour and 20 min away via train but am more than thrilled to go hit up vegan eats in the city!
i will figure out when i'm gonna be in town. ha! in town. :P
will post later. need to drive in snow :uhoh: across town and up a hill to meet with someone. boo early meetings!
Darnit. I don't want to be square, but I'm just too far away. Do you think I can be triangle, or even crescent? :D
This is funny. I didn't even read this thread yesterday & last night I had a dream that I met up with a bunch of Vegwebbers but we were all camping and it was like back in time or something. Everyone was a hybrid of themselves & people from my past. Like Baypuppy was this girl I used to work with & Foofie was her brother, Dinkfeet was a friend from highschool, Yabbit was my childhood friend's mom, Violin was a friend of my sisters who I used to babysit, I know Cali was there, but I can't think of who she was, and a bunch of other people were there too. We had a fun time.
i can't remember what weekend it is for sure (looking up = effort) but it is the end of february.
are friday nights or saterday afternoons better for people? my paper is saturday morning, and i plan to head back to the alb sat night, but i have all afternoon to chillaz!
Friday Nights I would have to leave after work via train to Grand Central. Saturday afternoon I can go down anytime the train runs. heheh
okay, everyone, for planning:
the conference is the weekend of February 21-24, 2008
i'm currently planning on coming down Friday during the day and leaving saturday. i haven't got my stuff figured out all the way (need to consult with DR and her work sched) but there is also a possibility that I'll come down on thursday - saturday. i have a ride back to ALB on Saturday, not sure when that will be leaving, but he's cool and might be okay with "tagging along" on a food adventure. not sure though.
in terms of a place to meet, somewhere easy for me to find would be great. i like walking places and can do the subway, but would prefer not to have to get a cab. they sketch me out for some reason. DR is vegan friendly so food wise i'm game for anything. i do like the hot buffet at whole foods ;) but i'm sure you all have better ideas! (my last NYC conference... aww, the memories of eating at the buffet). okay, i just like cold baked tofu a LOT.
I'd drive down from beantown to hang with you all, but I'm going to be away that weekend. Have fun!
I have eaten at Candle Cafe on 79th. It was awesome.
But I can definitely go down after work for a dinner! I am down for riding the subway too.
I voulnteer on the weekends from 3:30 to 7:30, so anytime before or after iis good for me...I suggest dim sum!! yummmm :D
okay, here is the deal:
i'm only going to be in town on Saturday. all day.
i will be bringing with me special friends camillus AND DR (tigraviva) with me!
they are gonna cruise the city during the day and i'll meet up with them post conference. i just have to give a paper and go to the book exhibit ::)
will post more on stuffs later, but i'm hoping we can meet up with everyone. might have to do a late lunch and a late dinner with kennedy's voulnteer sched, but we'll have to eat anyways. maybe we can have a fun afternoon in the city if people want to hang around for a while? i know DR wants to go to museums, and i told cammy about moo shoes, so there are places to go and check out!
btw do people know about subway passes? can you get a day pass? or is it always per ride? we're driving down and parking, also, so if you have tips/ideas about how to keep us from breaking the bank that would be great.
Oh! I want to come!
And about the MetroCard, you can get one of these:
1-Day Fun Pass
Cost: $7, reduced fare not available
Good for unlimited subway and local bus rides from first use until 3 a.m. the following day. Sold at MetroCard Vending Machines and at neighborhood stores. Not available at station booths.
okay, that is what hung me up. you can't get them in the station? i remember going in and buying tickets when i was there last. but you can't buy the day pass there?
it just seems so vauge.... like, the machines are just around? and you try to find them? and what stores? i'll have to get me one of those babies ;)
