NYC Meetup!

The QUESTION has been raised. It was really only a matter of time. Would a bunch of us lovely Steepsterites like to drink some tea together in NYC? Surely we could also swap teas. There has also been thought of going to a museum afterwards!

If we can organize quickly enough, I would love to do this next Saturday, but we can just as easily put it off ’til April. (Unfortunately, I head back to Ohio on the 7th for college.)

Thoughts? Questions? Concerns?

I have plans for next saturday, but can do April :) If we organize now for April, maybe more non-NYC natives might be able to come!

There must be more of us; I’m certain of it! My vote is for end of March, but…

March 27th / March 28th / April 3rd?

I’d love March 28th! Sundays are always easiest for me – free parking in the city :)

ZOMG guys, the obvious choice for a Steepster meetup in NYC is at the Coffee and Tea Festival. Feb 20-21.

I’ve been toying with the idea of going, but a meetup would definitely put me in the “yes” category.

oh no i’m busy that weekend :(

Ricky admin said

If we can gather a few people I’ll probably be up for it. Wait 20th… ummm…. sounds very familiar….

Jack admin said

I’ll be there and would love to meet up if anyone else is going. If you put in the promo code FESTIVAL you can get the tickets for half-off :)

I’m going to probably go to this just for fun! Jon will probably be accompanying me as well. :D

Ricky admin said

Are people going Saturday or Sunday o.O?

Jack admin said

I’ll be there on Saturday.

I would definitely do it, but I won’t be about Feb. 20th/21st, and it looks like the programming is an all-day sort of event. Le sigh. Maybe we could do two or something? No reason to stop at one…

How ‘bout we do one in California eventually?
You know, do an “other coast” thing… (that doesn’t involve me travelling across the country…)
San Francisco’s great.

I’ll be out that way next Christmas…

That makes two. Woo.

LA works for me…but I may be in San Fran this Spring. Looking forward to whatever we work out.

And Midwest? Anyone?

wombatgirl said

If we could get a few others, I’d drive up to Chicago. Or some other Mid-westerny point. :)

tease said

I would happily bus some weekend to Chicago, if I’m in my alternate location of Ohio…

Cofftea said

Milwaukee, WI or Chicago would be easy for me if someone could pick me up from the airport and drop me back off.

Cofftea said

Here’s a great idea for a Chicago trip http://japanhouse.art.illinois.edu/

Bethany said

Unfortunately, Cofftea, it looks like that is in Urbana-Champaign, which is about a 4-hour trip from Chicago..

Cofftea said

Duh, If I’d know my geography I woulda known that… and so would the book it’s labled under Chicago lol.
