Hi guys- the AfterEllen.com ladies are doing a Meet & Greet in New York on May 18th. Please stop by and say hi if you're around.
Here are the details:
DATE: Sunday, May 18th
TIME: 3pm to 6pm
LOCATION: The Bar K section of Cowgirl
ADDRESS: the bar/restaurant is located at 519 Hudson St, New York, NY 10014, but the Bar K room has a separate entrance at 255 W. 10th St.
Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions...
WHAT'S THE POINT OF THIS EVENT?
For AE staff, vloggers, and 3Way folks to meet and chat with AE readers, and AE readers to meet each other. Please don't be shy! Come up to us and other attendees and introduce yourselves.
WHO WILL BE ATTENDING?
Sarah Warn, Lori Grant, Bridget McManus, Dara Nai, Karman Kregloe, Jill Bennett, Jenn and Dee, Nancylee Myatt, Paige Bernhardt, Maeve Quinlan, Cathy Shim and Kate McKinnon (subject to last-minute changes).
WHAT'S THE ATMOSPHERE AT THE RESTAURANT LIKE?
IS THIS A PRIVATE EVENT?
No. We're reserving the back room, but we're not renting out the restaurant, which means there be some non-AE people there (it is a lesbian-ish restaurant/bar, though).
DOES IT COST ANYTHING TO ATTEND?
CAN I COME IF I'M UNDER 21?
Yes, all ages are welcome.
WILL THERE BE FOOD AND DRINKS?
You can buy drinks and appetizers during the event (the restaurant will only be serving appetizers while we're there, since there will be too many of us to serve meals). And please tip well, since the Cowgirl folks were nice enough to let us descend upon their restaurant with very little notice, and in general have been very accommodating.
WHAT'S THE PARKING SITUATION?
You'll probably need to find a parking lot, since you'll be unlikely to find street parking; go to Cowgirl's website for some suggestions on parking lots nearby.
CAN I BRING MY CAMERA AND TAKE PHOTOS?
Yes, but please don't post pictures of other AE members from the party on your MySpace profiles etc. without checking with them to see if it's OK first (since some folks may not be out, or at least not want to be out to the whole world).
I CAN'T MAKE IT UNTIL THE LAST HOUR; IS THAT A PROBLEM?
That's fine, but the restaurant only holds 200 people or so, so if by some chance we exceed that number, there may be a wait to get in.
