New York City Meet Up - June 16th

It's time for another New York City Meet Up! The first and second meet-ups were quite successful and a lot of fun! My list of contacts for upcoming meet-ups in NYC has grown, so I am following Steve's outline for planning the next one - this post is just a "calling notice" - please read the entire post before responding.

Date: Saturday, June 16

Time: 1:00 pm

Where: Sam Flax store, 900 Third Ave (bewteen 54th & 55th Streets)

In the past, it has worked well that we meet at Sam Flax, shop the Filofax selection, then head to Le Pain Quotidien (937 Second Ave, between 49th & 50th Streets) for a late lunch/early dinner. A few people travel quite a distance to attend, so we have to meet after noon.

How to book a place for the meet up:
Please send an email to Susan at kanalt17 [at] gmail [dot] com on Friday, April 6, beginning at 9:00 a.m. US time. This gives people a week (between the announcement date and the sign up date) for people to look into arrangements should they need to. (Please do not book travel arrangements until you have been confirmed a place.) I will add people to the list on a first-come, first-served basis and will notify you via email regarding confirmation as soon as I can.

In order to keep the group to a level that allows for easy shopping and dining, we will limit the list to 10. If there are more than 10 people to respond, I will create a reserve list - if one of the original 10 drops out between April 6 and June 16, I will contact someone from the reserve list in order of placement. Please do not request a spot for the meet up unless you are fairly certain that you'll be able to attend - I'd like to give as many people the opportunity to attend as possible.

Please let me know if you have any questions - you can email me directly at kanalt17 [at] gmail [dot] com. Thank you!
