Default 2012 NYC Dinner Thread

Well, we had a very nice group of hobby friends that used to get together for dinner in NYC on a pretty regular basis, but it broke up and it's been a couple of years since the last one. And John M. and I thought it would be a good idea to revive this tradition.

So who's up for a dinner? Hope all the regulars, as well as the guys who came occasionally, will want to get back together. Time and place is open for discussion (not 500 posts).

And there are a bunch of new guys on the board who are welcome to join us....just post on this thread and say you are in.

If you live out of town and want to join us, maybe we can set a date around your schedule. Please remember that no matter what day we pick, there may be one guy with a conflict. So while it seems a simple thing to do it often gets more complicated than you would think.

Anyway, let's get the ball rolling and we'll see where it goes.

I remember that Josh, and that's why I extended the invitation. It's not always an easy thing to get started. The first time we tried, about 5 years ago, we had a thread of nearly 600 posts. It went on for a week.

Hi Michael- look forward to seeing you.

John- I was thinking late February- early March, so no problem there. I was going to suggest let's wait until the Spring, but the whole winter has been a Spring.

I'd consider it if we met up around the end of February. Do we have an idea of where the venue will be?

Hi Pete- well, we still have to pick something. Anyone is welcome to suggest a place, but we ususally take a few choices from different people and see which one works best. Feel free to start us off.
