Geek Off-Season Social Activities
by: Jessica on Oct 24, 2008 7:16 AM | Filed under: Journals

I know we’ve tossed around the idea of having some sort of NYC-area get-together over the winter, and I figured we should have a place to discuss potential plans. The last time this discussion came up, some of the ideas thrown out there were karaoke or going to a bar for trivia. Other ideas? Possible venues? Here would be a good place to share ’em.

    I don;t care because I probably can’t make it, but if you plan something cool, I will try!

    Thanks for posting this, Jessica. It a good idea to have a central place to discuss preferences and timing.

    I would suggest that we think of another mid-town bar*, to make things easier for the commuters. We can always have a later-in-the-evening secondary plan for everyone hanging out late.

    *or the same one!

    Aww, Athena being nice to us commuters.

    I’m in so long as it is during the week (like a Friday). Saturdays are hard for me.

    Count me in on the Friday night plan – it’s much easier for me to go out when I don’t have to work the next day.

    If we want karaoke, I found a place pretty close to Grand Central (45th and 2nd) that has it every Friday night:
