Food52ers in New York City

For want of a better place to put this, I would LOVE to meet some food52ers in late June when I visit New York. If you would like to meet up for a coffee or show me some foodie sites, I would be thrilled. Please send me a message, thanks

Silly me SKK....I didn't make myself clear in all my excitement. I plan on coming to Seattle but won't be able to do it on this trip. :-(. I would have been away from home for 2 weeks by the time I'm done with NYC - the kids are already moaning..... and I havent left yet!

I'd like to meet up, too. The park near Eleven Madison Park is a goodie, too. Or The High Line. That's really special.

Overwhelmed and thrilled....really pleased. So, I'll be in NYC from the Thursday, 21st to Thursday, 28th. Is a Monday a good day for travel in NYC? If so, then can we make Monday, 25th June, 2012? And time? After the worst of the afternoon sun - say 2pm? Is this a realistic time? I have NO idea what obtains in NY ...as far as I'm concerned it is a planet.....a special planet and I am SUPER excited. Oh, you cant imagine! Lots of love ???

Sunday is fine for me, but any day depends on the time, I have to give my dog his insulin between 4-5PM every day. If it's earlier I can come.

If Food52 staff are allowed to crash, I'm in. I'm good with either Sunday or Monday.

I'm not sure if you've chosen a location but you could do the High Line and get picnic treats from the Chelsea Market food hall... though I suspect that a large gathering on the High Line would draw the Park Police -- it's a very narrow space and there's also not a lot of shade.

Alternatively, you could use Madison Square Park and use Eataly across the street for provisions. There's plenty of shade here. This location has the added bonus of being just a few blocks from Food52 HQ which means if you did it on a Monday you might get to meet 2 or 3 or 5 or 8 of the staff members. ;-)

Ozoz_profile

So we've settled on a day - Sunday. And we could do it earlier. I'm totally flexible on this one. And of course, food52 staff have supreme crashing in rights. Y'all are the reason why I even get to plan an awesome meetup like this!!!!!!!! Saying that, Amanda and I did already exchange messages, about a likely Friday morning meet up and coffee at F52's HQ! It could all be meshed into one but I would love to see you guys in your 'habitat'

I can do either Sunday or Monday and 2PM sounds great to me, Peter, would love to meet you and wish it were Monday would love the opportunity to meet some of the food52 staff. I agree about High Line with the crowd we would attract the park police. Madison Square Park is perfect and how wonderful to be across from Eataly for excellent provisions.

(As an aside, I think it's ironic that you're using the word "meetup" to describe this event as I worked at Meetup.com for 3 years as their head of Product. It's nice to see the website coined a new generic verb/noun.)

So it's Sunday June 24th, should I mark my calendar. What time is good. Oh, KB and everyone I am so looking forwarding to meeting you all and seeing others that I haven't seen in a while. This is a wonderful idea and will be so much fun.

Well, the first time I came across mee-up was on food52, there used to be the map app with pins and I always felt so excluded....because I could see all these meetups happening in the States but I had no one to meet up with (then I lived in The NEtherlands).

So the word struck a chord, and stayed put....and now I finally get to 'meet-up'...Yay.

And yes, its amazing how connected everything is. So the meet-up is underway. I can't stop saying it.

If drunk discreetly, wine can be enjoyed in Madison Square Park. Decant the wine into a thermos or water bottle in advance. Drink out of paper cups, etc.

Madison Square park opposite Eataly (Madison & 23'rd) on Sunday June 24 then?? Sounds Awesome, Really hope the Food52 folk will be there as well.. the credit for building this sharing, caring bunch of cooks is all due to you!..
Lets decide on dishes that we'll bring , keeping in mind that it will be summer weather ..

on a crazier note, lets have a contest theme around what we bring in & have the KB, the guest of honor taste & decide on community picks on the spot! -- picnic foods that can withstand the summer heat!

Just in case of rain or bad weather we should have a plan B. What time is everyone thinking? 1 or 2 PM Sunday June 24th? We will also need to make sure we have paper plates, cups, utensils if its going to be pot luck. Is someone going to organize the details?
