Afterthought: BG:NYC and Fleet Week in the same weekend. Coincidence? ...I think not!
No Really! A Fourth! Can you believe it!?
This guy comes to town four years ago, and a yearly event was born. I attended the first three, and the crowd changes slightly every year, but there are a few regulars I'm always looking forward to hugging, and a few new people I'm always glad I met. Bloggers are just fun people. And this particular bunch of boys is pretty fucking hot.
Sadly, the only day I know won't be working is Monday, so I'm hoping to get out to Long Island for Jess and Marc's BBQ. Hey - I might even drive. Who knows? I really hope I don't work Sunday - I'm dying for some Marie's Crisis!
What: Bloggers, Fans and Stalkers Meet and Greet
Where: Therapy on the 2nd floor.
348 West 52nd Street, New York, New York 10019. Phone: 212.397.1700
Time: 9:00pm until whenever we decide to stop
Where: Sheep Meadow (aka Bear Hill) at Central Park
West side, mid-Park from 66th to 69th Streets
Why: Watch the Roller Disco Skaters, eat lunch, drink and enjoy the sun, weather permitting. (No alcohol, but I hear you may smuggle it in through cleverly designed sprite bottles)
Saturday night alternatives:
Many bloggers could be found at The Eagle on the Rooftop
554 West 28th Street (between 10th & 11th Ave)
Crash from Crash and Byrne will be going to see Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind at 10:30 PM in the East Village. The tickets are $11-16 each. After the hour long show, he will be going to hit the East Village gay bar(s), probably Urge and Eastern Bloc.
I wanted to make sure I took Brian and Steven to check out New York's infamous piano bar, Marie's Crisis.
Where: The Dugout for the Bear Beer Bust followed by Joe.My.God’s infamous Blarg (Blogger Bar Hop) in Chelsea.
Dugout: 185 Christopher St New York, NY 10014-2815 (212) 242-9113
Time: Meet at The Dugout at 5pm, end at The Eagle Beer Bust by 8pm. Bars would include the Dugout, Gym, View, Rawhide and the Eagle.
A BBQ on Monday (Memorial Day) starting at noon, has been added for those who would like to attend and is being hosted by Marc and Jess. Both are wonderful host and incredible cooks, not to mention great people. Anyone wanting to attend will have to email them to let them know so they have an accurate count of who's coming. If you don't have their email address, please contact me and I will get it for you.
