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.

I agree with a lot of this. I've been to the Australian before, decent place, gets loud after work. I'm partial to the gingerman (http://www.gingerman-ny.com/), but there too, huge afterwork crowd. We could pick a new place each week too.

We were successful doing the SF meetup by PMing two "for sure" attendees' numbers to everyone else on the thread. When those people showed up, we could just wave to the entrance. Don't pick anywhere too crowded, since you won't be able to hear each other talk.

Great idea. 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...."

Ha ha. I knew this.

Probably something which is a combination of some names like -- Tom Clooney or George Hanks

or may be Megan Jones or Catherine Fox would work I guess

I think we should definitely go some place where there aren't too many people, and it's not too loud. It would be a strain to hear conversation otherwise, especially for a first encounter.

Gingerman is great but yeah, could be annoying.

^^^^^

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.

Midtown? Ugh.

I think we should do one at the Dove again (awesome happy hour and not very fratty), and I can come if you guys do it early evening on Thursday the 11th. Friday, is well Friday and generally not a good idea, but next Friday I'll already be a few thousand miles away for Spring Break.

And of course the Village is convenient to several subways as well as the PATH.

By the way, ninky - stop lying. What you did at the Ginger Man was hilarious because you actually went up to random guys and said "are you waiting for someone?"

Do NOT book a table under GMATClub, thank you very much.

Oh, and the everyone wear the same color has actually been tried out before. Lilac, is all that I'm going to say.

That's hilarious. Much funnier than how you told it, Nink.

Is this Dove the basement bar right next to Pluck U that looks like my great grandmother's parlour on the inside?

Because if so, that place is awesome (except their dubious credit card minimum), has nice happy hour specials and a waitcrew that actually makes an effort to remember your face.

Yes it is Coakleym.

The problem with that area remains that - while nice - it is where NYU is.

I might know too many people. If solaris1 is intimating splitting off for beer blast, he might be able to give you all a special Stern tour.

Minimum's twenty, which shouldn't be too daunting for most drinkers, but it does make it difficult for someone to say, "Oh, I'll just have one or two," unless they remember to bring some cash. Non-drinkers-non-eaters, looking to grab a coke or a sprite or a shirley temple and not knowing about the minimum in advance, would also be surprised and perturbed.

Minimum's $20 for most places in NYC, even Calico Jack's, which has half priced ($3) drinks every Thursday.

i'm one of the people who have said "i'll just have one or two"

this is pretty common at alot of places in the city though. several times i forget to bring cash, and after 2 beers i try to close my tab and realize the minimum is 20. so i buy the extra beer and end up giving it away

It's also allegedly prohibited by Visa's, Mastercard's and Discover's merchant regulations. Though seemingly not enforced widely, if at all.

I would definitely say bars with minimums, even though somewhat common, are still the minority of places I go.

I think that it is fair, given the way the charge system works on small vendors. Below \$20 it may not even be worth their time serving you at all given the mechanism that the charges take on them.

Visa and Mastercard are just like Ticketmaster, though the average consumer sits in a different place in the relationship.
