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, 2014Here is a link to their website:
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.
Directions by subway: J,M,Z,F to Essex St./Delancey Street Station.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:
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.
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!!!
ALL ARE WELCOME!!!
