    It seems like we've been doing NYC meet-up's twice every year, once in Feb 2014, the other one which just ended in Oct, 2014.

    Since I'm visiting the Big Apple again in Feb, 2015. I'd thought we'd have another meet-up! Hoping this time @MSYgirl could join us again :)

    Update, Feb 14, 2015:

    Location has been decided on Totto Ramen on 51st and 10th. Around noon!

    I know the RSVP list has been small, but just in case your plans change and want to drop by.

    Hi Tony, Looking at the calendar for 2015, did you intend to have the meeting on a Sunday night (Feb 15, 2015?)

    Just FYI, that is the Sunday preceding school break in New York. I would imagine there's high likelihood of our target demographic (people who like to fly) who will be away from home that week. I put myself down as a maybe -- if I'm in town myself I'm sure to be there.

    I'll be in NYC this day so can attend. I'm not sure about the 7pm time without knowing when I'll have to meet with my boss that day, but I'll make it work.

    I put myself as a Maybe. It is in the middle of President's day weekend, so it works for those who have Monday Feb 16 off.

    Hi folks,

    Yes, that is a Sunday night. Timing is flexible so it can be 6, 7, 8pm whatever floats.

    The issue is that I'm out Feb 16th to BOS.

    Glad you can attend @MSYgirl! If others can't attend the 15th maybe we could have two - one with me one with the rest.

    Just an idea ha.

    Or K, we can just go dine alone ;)

    Forgot to note.
    If I manage to score a cheap same day RT ticket from BOS-NYC I can make a day trip for the meetup after the 16th. :)

    If it's more convenient to do this as a lunch, I'll be in NYC all day Sunday up until I have to meet my boss in the early evening.

    Lunch will be better than dinner -if I can get down to NYC at all.

    Hello all,

    As the date approaches, we'll keep you posted on possible meeting locations. In the mean time, for those who were speculating on whether to come or not. It would be great to get a firmer answer so we could plan :)

    Thanks!

    Lunch would work best. I'll be at LGA 2/14 evening and Manhattan near Times Square on 2/15.

    Pizza might not work then. But please don't change it on my account!
    But I think that is best for MSY girl.
    I'll suggest a nice lunch place near TS.

    I'm pretty flexible for Sunday. The meeting on Sunday night with my boss got canceled (although I still have to work Mon/Tues, sigh), so I am now flexible for lunch or dinner. I only have to meet a colleague coming in town to help me with a project (around 3pm Sunday), but otherwise I'm free all of Sunday. I'll be at LGA Saturday night (how romantic on Valentine's Day). :)

    My plans to drive down to NyC are highly dependent on weather. Right now there is so much snow that I can't get out of the driveway even though it's been plowed several times. Hope you and Sammich don't have flight trouble.

    We got in right away despite a long wait outside because I'm Asian. I got the death stare from other customers lol. @MSYgirl

    They had a long line, and I point out that he said--we got in fast because he's Asian. He had me cracking up with his jokes; "Always bring the token Asian friend!" It's always fun when Tony's in town.

    The food was okay. I don't think it would be on my must-visit lists for my next NYC trip.

    Yeah food was not top notch for sure. But it was nice seeing a friendly face in shivering NYC! :)

    It's always full of japanese & asian wanting their ramen fix. Somehow Toto Ramen has been raised to exalted level by them gen-z/x-whatever kids.
