Given the next New York Tri-State F-Chat Board Meeting is scheduled for 12:30am at LQ's, I feel it pertinent to have a "Pre-Meeting". We need to review old business, get our act together for the arrival of Lupe, discuss plans for the remainder of the weekend, etc. Here are several possible options: - The "Nice Dinner" Option: Dinner at Dylan, Brasserie, Montrachet, V, Mercer, Po, etc. Meet around 10, dine, head to Viks' immediately after to await the triumphant arrival of Lupe. - The "Kick-It-Down-A-Notch" Option: We head to a much more low-key and a much less expensive yet just as tasty restaurant (or "Ravintola" as they say in Finnish) like Arriba-Arriba, Grace, The Odeon, Provenvcale, etc. Meet around 10... - The "Geek-it-up" Option: We crash the Fishbulb Estate on Murray Street for some X-Box (PGR, PGR2, NFS:HP, NFS:U), Beer-&-Booze, Pizza, Disco Lights and old-school hip-hop music. Arrive whenever. Leave whenever... - The "Hubert Tsai Effect" Option: We all get in our "Tiny Hondas" (or Ferraris as the case may be) and take advantage of the virtual ghost town NYC will probably be tonight and do an in-car bar crawl... in search of b!tches. We hit a few places like Pastis (or equivalent), that place we were at on Tuesday, Library (near Vik's), Tribeca Grill, etc. We begin *EARLY* like around 8p or so... Any other options available? Any other suggestions? Any votes? Any other venues? Oh, and all F-Chat posters are invited.
