Another Meet-Up (with added Digby) in NYC?

Forgive me if I’m late to the party, but I figured this should be front-paged:

Would any NYCers be interested in a meetup on Tuesday, about 830 pm in midtown, after the Hillman Award reception? Digby said she’d drop by if I could put it together.

The reception is at the Times Building on 41st. I was thinking Rudy’s–if weather’s good the outdoor cafe works well. And that is the Drinking Liberally haunt as well….

(I added the Rudy’s link, someone let me know if I guessed wrong.)

    Isn’t our fearless blogmeister, Comrade Cole’s birthday later this month? We could hold Balloon Juice reader meetings across the country and have those that show up sign a card to mail to John. I’m sure he’ll like it.

    You picked the correct place. Earlier this afternoon I double checked where Rudy’s was at the Drinking Liberally web site. Based on its location I told Jay Ackroyd I’d be interested in a meet-up.

    I remember being shocked to find out Digby was a woman.

    The GingerMan is on 33rd (I think). Outrageously good selection of fine beer & ales.

    I wish I could. Someday I’ll make one. It’s hard for me to get there until late. I’d have to drive into manhattan and violet will scold me.

    Next week is finals for this semester in grad school. Here’s to hoping I make the next one, and that everyone who does go to this have a blast!

    @Chickamin Slam:

    I don’t know, I hear JC hates getting email from us, can’t imagine snail mail would be better. :)

    I’ll be in Indonesia then. Too bad, would have liked to have met her. (I always assumed Digby was a woman from the tenor of her posts.)

    Yes, that Rudy’s. I’ll tell the Drinking Liberally people as well I guess.

    830 PM EDT.

    Thanks AL!

    I was planning on a seven-mile run that night, but for Balloon Juice I’ll give up anything! (At least anything that makes me feel like I’ve been chewed up and spit out by the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.)

    I’m game.

    @Paul W.: You forgot the free hot dogs (they do still have those, right?).

    I may have to decloak and join you all. Would be a pleasure to match faces with names (I hope!) Please keep updating. Rudy’s is a fine choice, but there are so many good bars here. @kindness: Have you ever tried Rattle and Hum? Same neighborhood, and something in the neighborhood of 30 taps. Fine place….
