RenYC 2009

I put the word out yesterday on Twitter that I’ll be in New York City on October 10th and would love to get together with some fellow bloggers and tweeters. The wonderful Poppy was quick to volunteer for the task of organizing a dinner meet-up dubbed RenYC. Thank you, Poppy!

If you are interested in attending (please, please, please!), please leave a comment either here or at Poppy’s blog entry linked above. Better yet, leave a comment both places. πŸ™‚

By my reckoning, this will be my fourth trip to the Big Apple, having previously visited in 2000, 2001 and 2008. The first trip was in the summer and pretty hot, though coming from Texas it wasn’t too bad. The other two trips (March and December) were a bit cold for my taste. I wonder how October will be?

To be clear, I’ve enjoyed each one of my trips regardless of the weather. I love visiting New York City. To be honest, I enjoy visiting most places, but New York City has a special draw for me. It’s the energy level I almost always encounter there that appeals to me. The only energy level I’ve experienced that consistently surpases it is Mardi Gras in New Orleans — another city I love to visit.

Anyway, back to RenYC. The venue is not yet determined but it will be somewhere in Manhattan at around 6pm, October 10, 2009. Hope to see you there!

    I am very much looking forward to this event. I don’t know why it took me 34 years to move here, I love it soooo much!

    And yes, definitely a very incredible energy here!!!

    I’ll shop around for haunts, maybe ask both Dawg and BE Earl who know random nooks with great food and drink. πŸ™‚

      kilax, I wish you could be there as well. Not sure when I’ll make it to Chicago, but if and when I do I’ll see about having something there.

      LeSombre – It turns out I’ll be in Toronto September 5-7. Maybe we can meet up then, though you should still come to New York. πŸ™‚

    Gah. I will take up any excuse to go to NYC, but I doubt I’ll make it up there for this. Boo. Although it’s a great time to visit. The weather should be yummy!

      Finn, you will be missed. Maybe something will work itself out and an addition excuse will present itself. I am looking forward my first fall visit.
