Seems like this will be a cozy gathering then.

I got two ideas for a theme:

* I am looking to compare Cabernet Franc from LI vs. Maryhill Washington that I picked up recently.
* Having been instructed about the difference of Nebiollo and Barollo in Venice recently, could also do an Italian night.

In terms of timing, I'm eyeing 5/13, 5/14 and 5/21 weekend dates, but could be flexible with a weekday too.

What do you think?

Hey, I just saw this! I rarely check the Gatherings tab. Such a nice surprise.

Not sure if I'm even in, but if I can make it, for me Saturday the 13th (or another Saturday) would be the day.

May 13th works for me. How about everyone else?

Holy Shit, wooters! It's been a while...like 8 years? So that weekend is mother's day but assuming mom doesn't need me for dinner, I could do the 13th or 14th.

Thanks for the nudge, Cesare!

Great! 13th it is then.

I've updated the initial post with info and will keep it up-to-date for easy lookup.

So far I've pm'ed my address to everyone interested so far (let me know if you didn't get it). Please confirm and let me know about +1 plans so I can make sure to have sufficient amount of stemware.

I am sorry to be a party pooper. We were just offered theater tickets for Saturday night, so we're sending our regrets.

And I promise to drop in but I likely have a neighborhood baby's birthday party that evening. I'll make it though. Would be good to see some peeps.

Alone?

Always keep a bottle of Champagne in the fridge for special occasions. Sometimes the special occasion is that you've got a bottle of Champagne in the fridge. - Hester Browne

Hey folks,

I've updated the front page with current status. If you'd like to come and don't have a pm with my address yet, please let me know and that shall be fixed.

It does seem like it'll be a rather small gathering, but you gotta restart the tradition of NYC meetups somewhere.

Besides, I'd be very happy to show Cesare my new (old) wine fridge that I solicited his advice for.

Would love to see the fridge but I think that will have to wait for next time.

Aww. I guess we'll have to organize it some other time then.
