I say “information thus far” because a while back I
had requested feedback on places to shop and/or eat. While two people responded, I’m still without
a definite plan. However, I do have some ideas.
Currently, I don’t have a time for the meet up. I would like to see where people are travelling from and decide then. In the
past, we’ve met at 1 pm, which gave enough time for people to travel from
places as far away as Boston (a 4 or 5 hour train ride). Most likely, I will again aim for that time-frame.
At most meet ups, we have met at Sam Flax on Third Avenue.
While the Filofax area there is small in
regards to space, they have the biggest selection of Filofax products I
seen in NYC. Plus, being an art store,
they have a ton of other merchandise relative to office supplies and
stationery. This is still an option. However, if anyone has any other
I am willing to look into it. I have
been to a few other stores, but the selection is not as good as Sam

Finally, we have enjoyed a late lunch/early dinner after
shopping for about an hour or so. Most
of the meet up meals have taken place at Le Pain Quotidien, a short walk from
There was a suggestion of
trying something new. I am open to this
idea, but where we eat will depend on where we meet and shop since those
options are more limited than restaurants.
I am asking for suggestions for shops and restaurants from
people who will be attending. I will try
and take everyone’s suggestions into consideration, but ultimately will decide
based on majority rules or what is easiest for the group as a whole.
If you would like to reserve a spot, please email kanalt17
at gmail dot com. In order to keep the
event easily manageable, we will limit the number of spots to 10. Once we’ve gotten a few people to respond, we
can start discussing ideas on the meet up via email.
I hope plenty of people will support Susan and be able to attend this meet up, I would love to get to one myself one day...
