Let me give you guys some advice so you guys don't have to go through the embarrassment that I had to go through... :oops:

Last year, we (NYC crew) had happy hour about every 6 weeks, from Dec 2008 and forward. I met some great people like fatb, Solaris1, Jerz, Terp26, 3underscore, etc.

Now, I suggest that you guys don't pick a too fancy of a place for happy hour. I remember when we went to the bar on the roof of the Library Hotel....we ended up paying like $10-$12 for a bottle of Corona's.... Men, I used to earn a nice paycheck back then but still, who pays that much for beer?

Secondly, make sure you guys have a way to identify each other. When the group and I met for the first time in Dec 2008, I walked straight past all of them (they - about 10 individuals - were by the bartender and the bar was nearly empty and yet, I still missed them somehow) and almost walked out thinking no one came to the event.

Thirdly, when Raabend came to town and we held the happy hour, we had no idea what Raabend looked like so I ended up going up to random dudes in the bar and asked them something like, "Hey, how ya doing?" Let's just say that it was embarrassing and I got odd stares........

Lesson from all this? Plan properly.

Solaris - it is a meet up for applicants. Wake up and admit that, in a few months time, you will be half way done and have virtually zero options for future graduate degrees.

Obviously, I am even less welcome!

I'm interested - 3/12 sounds great. Is this GMAT club only, or are we allowed to bring other friends who are in the application process as well?

Just drop "GMATClub" from the reservation name. Do not mention the words "GMAT" or "Club" in the bar. Come up with another name for this group thingy.

You will find out that those words, "GMAT" or "Club" (especially) do not work so well at a NYC bar. You will either be laughed at or say what my fiancee told me, "GMATClub? What in the? You are such a geek...."


^^^^^

If I knew you booked a table under GMATclub, I would not turn up. Well, I would, but sit at the bar throwing orange peel at you (this has been performed before in B Bar beer garden at circa 3am).

I know it is what brings you all together, but it is something to be mutually ignored. It is worse than any normal interweb message board meet up after all.

I think BritGuy is in town for an NYU interview some time soon. Maybe we can try fit it with his timelines.

I don't quite understand why a current student, who has the capacity to drink pretty much 24/7, is directing when things are going to be.

Save for the fact he will be nearby that day, so everyone but he makes an effort.

I might add that - when I was at NYU - there were zero events near the school (admittedly, I also didn't show up). I cannot fathom why this should change for Solaris1. other than his fear that it may be raining and would maybe cause color leach from his loud footwear.

do we wanna push this back another week?

Definitely not.
Rain is a good reason to be inside with a beer. If it were nice out you'd all be playing Ultimate or sunbathing or something.

i just called up stout to confirm that all the floors would be open (there's 3 floors in the bar). the lady who answered wasn't sure, since she said they might be having a private party due to the college basketball games.

i'm going to call back tomorrow afternoon and see if the basement will be open (i figure the main floor would be more packed so the basement might make more sense). if so, we can meet up in the basement near the dart area around 6pm-ish. i'll post back here tomorrow with any updates. if anyone won't have access to the forum and you want me to text message you the updates, PM me with your phone #.

I don't know how this is usually done, but I guess I'll privately message people here and ask them to send me their cell #. Then I'll think of a time and place and I'll text everyone who gave me their # and post the meeting time/place on this board.

It will be great to actually talk in person.

Ok, I'll throw something out there. I work in Midtown, in the Fashion District. I live in Brooklyn. But not the cool part, so that may or may not help. I personally prefer weekend happy hours to weeknight happy hours but I can do either. I have no commitments that can't be rearranged, except I'm out of town the third weekend in March. What works for all of you?

Depending on when and where you schedule this, I'd be happy to swing by and see if I could be of any help. There's an old New York City meet-up thread buried somewhere, too.

I don't see any issue with keeping this public - I think thats how the other city meet and greets worked.

I might be down. I am on crutches, and probably will be for the next few weeks, so that kind of deters me from being social.
