Greetings all!  

By now most of you will have seen sidnora's diary about passing the organizing torch to me for NYC meetups.  Knowing how fabulous she has been at doing this I'm not sure how I will measure up but I'm willing to (nervously) do my best - with a little help, of course - so here goes...

What with NN14 behind us and the dawg days ahead - not to mention the fall election season - it gives me great pleasure to invite you to a late summer meetup at our fave LES venue, Spitzer's Corner.  Details below the sweet potato fries.

Date: Sunday, August 24, 2014
Time: Noon - ??? (latecomers welcome!)
Place: Spitzer's Corner
         101 Rivington Street (corner of Ludlow)
Meet us in the back room. This venue is wheelchair accessible.
Here is a link to their website:


Directions by subway: J,M,Z,F to Essex St./Delancey Street Station.

        If you're coming in from outside the city:

        From Grand Central: take the downtown 6 train (6 stops) to Bleecker Street Station, walk downstairs to Broadway-Lafayette station, change for the downtown F train (2 stops) to Delancey Street Station.

        From Penn Station: walk one block east to 34th St/Herald Square subway station, take F train (10 stops) to Delancey Street Station.

        From Port Authority Bus Terminal: take the downtown A,C, or E train to West 4th Street Station (4 stops), walk downstairs and take the downtown F train (3 stops) to Delancey Street.

        Any of these trips takes about 20-25 minutes.

       If you are driving, there's a very inexpensive municipal lot a block or two away, on Delancey Street. Street parking is free on Sundays.

Please be advised that subway schedules are subject to serious messing around on the weekends, with lots of trains either not running or being diverted due to all kinds of construction projects.  You can get more or less up-to-date info here:

The 'Weekender' app is available from the website for mobile devices and is a great tool!

SO - there will be FRIES (and other food), beverages, summer stories, lots of lively political discussion and also, too... FRIES!!!


RSVP in the comments or send me a kosmail.  Include your personal email in the kosmail if you want to be added to the NYC meetup mailing list.  

Thanks for reading!!!  Hope to see you there : )

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
