    Sure, there's a pre-party for the event on January 22nd, the night before the real thing, but at least one person mentioned to me that they're going to be in town on the 21st and looking to go out so I figured I'd see if anyone else is interested. I know a few options that can try to contain us for a couple hours of drinking if folks are interested.

    Anyone in LAX after a pre-party on the 21st let me know. I'm staying at the Airport Hilton (a non-exciting venue that's close to a Carls Jnr and that's about it!). :)

    Hehe, I believe that would be me. :)

    I get in 6:37p at LGA and need to get to the Upper East Side to drop off my stuff. I was aiming for something 8 or 9ish. Not looking for anything all-too fancy or coordinated. Maybe food (gets hard if group gets too big) and definitely drinking should be involved...

    Doesn't look like there is enough to plan anything.

    I’ll be in LA at a friend’s 50th birthday party, arriving back in time for the dinner. Sadly, won’t be able to join you. :(

    On my way to LGA (chnage in plans due to weather) . Are there still plans to meet somewhere tonight? If not I'll just pre-catch up of my sleep for the MegaDO :)

    I'm finally back in the USA and have cobbled together a plan. I'm going to dinner around 8-830 tonight at an Italian place in Chelsea (www.lezie.com). Yes, the same general type of food as tomorrow night but it is my favorite place in town and I haven't been in a while so that's what I'm doing. If folks want to join me please let me know ASAP as I'll get a table booked.

    After that, probably around 10ish, I'll head a block south to Peter McManus. It is a not particularly sexy pub that usually has space and also has decent prices on a decent selection of beers and booze. That part doesn't really reuqire planning as finding space is generally easier. There are a couple other, nicer bars that I considered but, quite frankly, I don't feel like tramping all over town in the snow tonight; I. That the past week and it got old.

    If you think you might come to either please reply here, email me (seth@millerworks.net) or call (+1.347.AWARDS1) so I can provide directions and offer updates if things change.

    Could be iinterested in dinner. Let me look at our schedule and I will reply.

    Having a large, beautiful suite at the Grand Hyatt - I could easily host a party here with access to mixers, glasses, snacks, etc. If folks are interested let me know. Could then go down to Chelsea for dinner.

    Put 2 of us down for dinner at 8-8:30. Looks like it is on 7th Ave between 20-21st - I will email. We will have drinks, snacks at the lounge 5-7:30 then head down. Anyone in midtown - wants to stop by then head down - PM me. May just walk down - not as cold as it looks.

    With all the food in the Lounge (roast beef, scallops, veggies, etc) I think we will have to pass on dinner. But let me know where you go afterwards.

    Sitting on my flight to LGA, but we're now running at least 15 mins late. I'll head straight down once I ditch my bags. Seth, I'll give you a call when I'm en-route.

    Ah, now that would depend entirely on how ... warmly, shall we say ... they greeted you.

    Undecided about tonight. Not many warm clothes. But if leZie is the place we went to last time, it was delicious. And the staff were most helpful in dismantling the booth when Firefly's camera fell down behind the couch.

    If you don't get enough for dinner - we could be up for a couple of beers then a slice of pizza late.

    Well, I did pick a place close to my apartment in part because of the cold. ;)

    Se y'all tomorrow.

    Hang on a minute! Didn't say I'm not going, just muttering to myself about indecision after seeing some white stuff on the ground that looks a lot like the pictures I've seen on Christmas cards!! Added to the mystery of it when I was a kid surrounded by scorched red earth all December and 110 degree days.

    I may mosey on down for the Managers' drinks here at the Andaz in a while & consider my options.. And a cab would save me being too exposed to the elements..

    Ok, just spoke to Wandering Aramean & I will be there for dinner, after a sampling of what's available downstairs here first. IIRC they had some delicious savouries last time too.
