    I'm not exactly close to NYC, but I'm close enough to it that I can drive/go by bus there in a relatively short amount of time! Nice to know there's another nearby.

    There are at least a couple of Achaeans who live in or near NYC, I met them when I was over there at the end of July. I'll let them come along and post if they want to though.

    Really depends on which part you go to, and who you're with. Well, that could be said for any place, really, but imho NYC has something for everyone.

    This is good for morale. It will take a little while while I get my bearings and learn more.

    I hoped it was obvious I was joking!

    NYC is one of the world's greatest cities. When I was starting Achaea, there were only three cities I considered moving to: San Francisco, NYC, and London. I chose SF but could have as easily chose NYC, and I have a good time there every time I visit for either business or pleasure.

    Eh? Eh? -winknudge- 


    Kidding aside, I like NYC and hope to take it over one day. Until then it is just a place I visit, and not nearly often enough.

    Oh, man, how could anyone pick SF over NYC? I mean I guess in terms of cost of living it makes more sense (NYC is the most expensive city in North America, and SF is the second most) but damn, NYC is amazing. And for that matter you might as well move to Berkeley or Oakland which are even cooler and don't feel the settings for any potential Portlandia spin-off.

    Maybe it's just me, but I always loved SF much more than NY. :( I miss Cali in general.

    You still live in SF today? Are you telling me if I drove 1.5 hours to the Corte Madera IRE location, or wherever it is, I could find a Sarapis?

    Look for the matrix-like body, and a grey cloak, over some guy in bermuda shorts.

    Ok guys! December is in full swing. Holiday cheer dominates the world and more booze shall be flowing than we know what to do with. What does this mean!?

    Time to schedule our meet for us high-society New Yorkers! I was thinking of Saturday the 28th or (if the majority of you are busy this weekend) the 4th of January. To get a head count, please AGREE to this post if you want the 28th, or LIKE if you want the 4th. Or you could post if you wish to offer other options! Once I get a headcount, I'll see about possible events and venues (ie. wtf we will do).

    Let's have awesome holidays, and I look forward to meeting you guys soon :)
