Hey all! We had such a blast last year w/the mtg that we're going for round 2! Hope you all can make it...man, woman, str8, gay, bi or....... Here is some info from Grande Poobah himself Jason Els: A friendly get-together for dinner and drinks with LPSG members. WHERE: East of Eighth 254 West 23rd Street New York, NY 10011 212.352.0075 Google Maps It is southeast of the 23rd Street C and E station, about half a block It is northwest of the 23rd Street 1 station, about half a block It is northwest of the 23rd Street F, V, and PATH stations, about a block and a half It is northwest of the 23rd Street R and W station (Madison Park), about two and a half blocks It is easy to get to from either Penn Station, or if driving, the Lincoln tunnel. There are parking garages mapped here. The dress code there is casual. The neighborhood is Chelsea. WHO: LPSG members (and their SOs). It doesn't matter if you live in New York or Timbuktu. It doesn't matter if you know anyone or no one. If you can make it, you're welcome to attend. WHEN: Saturday, June 14th, 2008 starting at 6pm and going until whenever. I will get there early. Arrive any time from 6pm onward. If you don't know where to go, just look around for me or ask for Jason_Els, which is the name I will give the host(ess). I will give my cell phone number to people who confirm so you can call me if you can't find us. IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND: Send me a PM or reply in this thread and I will add you to the list. Please include a first name (real or otherwise). You do not have to give a last name. If you confirm and then cannot make it, please let me know. The more numbers I can give the restaurant, the easier it will be for them and us. Your privacy is important so please be aware there will be people with cameras. If you do not want your picture taken, please let people know. Nobody will hassle you about it. The pictures will only be posted here at LPSG but will be visible to non-gold members. THERE IS NO SEX IN THE CHAMPAGNE ROOM: This isn't an orgy or even a sexy party. You will be required to keep your clothing on because this is a real, normal, restaurant and bar. While this isn't a dating scene, who you hook-up with or ask out afterward is up to you. MONEY. THAT'S WHAT I WANT: The best things in life are free so that means this ain't. Please bring enough of the green stuff to cover your bill and tip. Keep track of what you order and spend. We do separate checks for drinks and usually split the food tab among those who eat. You may end-up paying a little more than you think you should be and if that really bothers you then run a separate tab. There is no cover charge for the restaurant and, as New York restaurants go, East of Eighth is very reasonable. Check the menu on their webpage to get an idea of how much you will be spending. We had loads of fun last time and hope to see more faces at this event. If anything, the experience confirms that LPSG is full of some of the most fascinating people around. We hope you'll attend and enjoy the company of other LPSG members! Anything I've left out? ----- So far we had as confirmed: Me Swordie bklynbigballs nudeyorker Hellskitchenman jason_els edmouse JJKirkwood A lot of maybes so pm me or Jason and we'll add you to the list.
