- Oct 25, 2017
It’s the last official NYC Era meetup of the year! So before you hibernate in the warm with video games and TV until 2019, come out to Williamsburg for a jolly good time.
When: Friday, December 7th
Time: Starting at 6PM (Rocka Rolla bar) followed by The Commodore
What: We’ll be gathering up at Rocka Rolla then at around 7pm head to The Commodore for some sweet sweet chicken and biscuits. What comes after The Commodore? Perhaps we hit up the legendary Action Burger to play Smash Bros or the single members try to find love at Union Pool? Maybe we just all decide we have the voices of angels and do karaoke at Alligator Lounge. Who knows what the night holds!
6PM: Rocka Rolla – chill bar that serves beer in goblets
7PM: The Commodore – best. Fried chicken. Ever.
Rest of the night: Possible options include Action Burger (The Room of restaurants), Union Pool (NYC's #1 trash bar), Alligator Lounge (a free slice of pizza with every drink / karaoke)
What’s the best way to contact people to make sure I don’t show up somewhere alone?
You can either post here or ask for a NYC Era Discord link. Last minute updates and photos of sandwiches are generally shared there. Big updates like venue changes will be cross posted on the thread. It's a good idea to use the Discord to contact us if you're at the location and can't find us; sometimes we get so caught up in each other's wonderfully charming personalities that we don't pay attention to the site.
How long have these meetups been around?
But I’m not a social butterfly and prefer to stay home to x activity. Strangers are weird.
“Do not be too timid or too unsure about your actions. All life is an experiment.” Yeah, we don’t know you and have never met but if you want to get over that, the best way to do it is to go out and socialize. We were all strangers at some point before we met.
I’m banned and/or stopped posting. Can I still come out?
The more, the merrier, so feel free to show up!
How many people typically come out?
On average around 10 - ∞ people; it consists of regulars and new comers, as well as poor significant others dragged out to meet Era members. Past meetups have attracted people from out of state and even out of the country. All are welcome and no need to feel too timid or unwelcome; meetups attract folks with a wide array of interests so groups typically split into smaller conversations.
How long do these meetups last? Do you peeps always meetup at one location or move around the city?
The Meetups go on for as long as there are people still willing to be out. As the night goes on the group dwindles down but there’s usually an enthusiastic few who want to go another bar or eat late night fast food.
Do I have to drink to be cool with you all?
Nobody will pressure you to drink so if it’s water or soda you want, more power to you. A few regulars barely drink or don't drink at all. But if you drink, make sure you keep an eye on how much you consume because we preferably want you to get home safe. No one wants a Floridian bloody face.
But I’m poor and I’m trying to be frugal! Rent isn't cheap you know!
We all have bills to pay and are willing to take some of our time to meet up; one night out isn’t going to kill your budget. If anything, someone may buy you a drink and/or share food. Plus, delightful conversation about pop-culture, New York and the meaning of life is always free.
Oh no! It's too cold to be outside! You guys are crazy!
Dress accordingly then. While weather is something to keep an eye on, it's not a factor so the show must go on.
This is going to be really awkward isn’t it?
It’s only awkward if you make it awkward for yourself.
Where I can go air out my grievances about how expensive NYC is when there isn’t a meetup?
Is it true one of your regulars spams Discord with Fortnite memes all day and then picks up cute women at the meetups?
Confirmed not attending:
Hope to see you there!
