Didn't want an offer for free drinks to get lost on an overcrowded thread. So I thought I would start a new one to highlight this very generous offer.

We would like to sponsor a StreetEasy Meet Up for Wednesday, March 3 at Wildwood BBQ. 6:30-8:30PM... or till you guys are finished bashing HFSComm.
Can't wait to meet you all!
good. i'd love to meet you.
well, you won't be part of the conversation or even group then. no handle or relationship to a handle, no entry. maybe you can come as malraux.
and if you pick a handle, you'll just have to wonder whether we've already met that person.
I don't think it'll be that hard to find it:
Picture a big, brassy upper middle-aged (or "of a certain age") woman. Woman, not lady, not girl, not broad, not gal, woman. As in "woman's sizes". With clown-dyed hair in a "hairdo". With big gaudy gold-tone jewelry (brooches and the like) on a big gaudy novelty-colored dress suit or pants suit or the like. And vaudeville makeup to match, of course. Lives in a scared-white-woman neighborhood like Yorkville or one of those beige areas on the eastern side of midtown.
Powdery makeup that accentuates every wrinkle and sag.
Wildwood is a great choice..very convenient for many people (and SUPER DUPER AWESOMELY convenient for yours truly), yummy casual eats and a friendly unpretentious atmosphere. It may get loud but we'll just have to get louder. I really hope the hfshit doesn't show up because I'm really looking forward to seeing those of you I've met before and meeting more of you. That sick troll deserves only to have his/her/it ass kicked and can't guarantee my night wouldn't end up at the 13th precinct if it makes an appearance.
liz, bail and representation are guaranteed.
but, sadly, the husband won't be attending (although this kind of pisses him off, because he has a good time at these events). and i'll be going by AR, not my real name. just don't call me aboutready, it doesn't work now.
Where is this place? WIldwood, New Jersey??
matt, alan has put up the link. you're so lame you can't click? it's the old avalon space you were so in love with, PAS. if i recall correctly.
There's no link in this thread.
sorry, matt, you're correct. the link is in the other thread, about halfway down the page. but here it is again.
Oooh! I like it! It's like hip industrial rustic! And the food pics look yummy!
Really great barbecue!!
ooo, we're afraid. very afraid. of the great hfscomm1 who is continually violating the terms of his/her involvement on this website.
you're a joke. pitiful.
show up. do. i'm sure they have a nice piece of paper to give you if you do.
and we know and can identify virtually everyone at these gatherings. so good luck.
i'll be sure to ask the owners to keep the security tapes. potential evidence. i know the owners so...
Now that I know who hfs is, I'm beginning to find this to be very amusing even though it's distracting at times. It's actually hilarious!
Sounds good. Will try to attend. Early middle-aged, but no overdone make-up. No gaudy jewelery.
Looking forward to meeting Liz. We have the music P.R. biz in common.
True Truth. And Matt I really hope you show up as well, it would be great to meet you.
AR, you are eternally AR....
why is hfs saying he will be there anonymously?...embarrassed to be seen,,as yourself?....why?
early middle-aged...that lasts up to like 60 now doesnt it?
Jim: If so, I have another 10 years. And I still look great. How old/young are you?
early middle-aged.....my liver is a bit older
i imagine lots of buddy-buddy groups: bjw and mutombo; truth and gator; .........
I'll be returning from Baja that day - hope to make it. God, if we're going to start counting liver-years....
Is there a bar?
How do we find each other once we get there?
(Second question might be related to the first)
Can't believe it's the same night as my other free drink event (a mandatory class parents event) - I won't get there till around 8 but I'll get there. I never have anything to do. See you all then.
I'll be there.
we all know eachother from previous meetups. if this is your first time, come with your handle. if you have ill will, DON'T COME.
nyc 10023 - will you be there?
30 years - will you be there?
can't wait to see everyone again!
I'm in Colorado at the moment. I'll see if I can get back in time. I would love to meet everyone and have unfortunately missed all the previous meet-ups because of travel conflicts. Fingers are crossed.
Can anyone come? I just joined SE, I would like to come! Also, how will I know who you guys are?
Yep - I will be there. I am so pathetic posting from the caribbean
Will be there. Technologic, you'll have no trouble finding us. We'll all come dressed as our favorite floorplans. ;)
>Where is this place? WIldwood, New Jersey??
Where's your short term memory bro....former Park Avalon, best pulled pork, wandering toe story....
23, which island? We just got back from St. Martin.
I think I'll be there and I'll leave 30 years a note (we have adjoining desks) to try to make him show.
AR: You have never met the StreetEasy staff before? That is surprising. Is this the first event they will be attending?
But the good news for me is that apparently you all are allowing the middle aged to attend. I am going to break out a new box of heavy powder, grease my creases, and show up.
W81 is the only SE person I know. Please show up W81. I'm looking forward to meeting all the infamous bloggers and sharing ancient Club 57 stories with alanhart. And just to be certain, when StreetEasy says they are going to "sponsor" this event, they are talking about buying cocktails, right? Not curing SE addictions, right?
apt23, did i say that somewhere, or imply it? they attended the first wine & roses event.
yes. first post on this thread in response to their invitation. i look forward to meeting you. for some reason you are the only person on this thread that i have a visual image of and i want to see if it matches.
w67th is the only one I have a visual image of. Sort of looks like this:
Ali - I was just in St. Martin too = well last week - went form the 29th to the 6th - stayed at the Atrium - when were you there and where did you stay?
apt23, the moderators removed the comment just before mine.
having met many people from SE, i gave up the visual imagery game, although i've heard JM is HOT. i'm a fat middle-aged hag. my husband sobs nightly at the sight of me. my daughter cringes when she brings friends home, tries to do so as infrequently as possible, you get the picture.
JM, what were you doing trolling through "related categories: animals/sex"?
Juiceman. That is so entirely rude and I really couldn't stop laughing. AR: the image comes exclusively from your writing style. Not that we might be oversensitive on this site but really...I'm not stalking you.....really. i mean really.
I'm a relative newb (in comparison to everyone else on this board) but I would like to stop by and meet you all.
we were at the Plantation through the 1st -- prob. just missed you in Phillipsburg or Marigot.
It would be my first time. I would never show up with ill will. I don't know about Gator. He's probably too busy with his new google page. If I can get back to town, it will be nice to meet all of you.
you did - we stayed at Plantation back in 2005. The days when we used to go to Orient. These past 2 vacations we went to Gallion Bay for the child.
all this talk of warm weather vacations is making me jealous.
"We'll all come dressed as our favorite floorplans. ;)"
have you guys seen these?
ali - tell 30 yrs he should really come, we're being SPONSORED this time : )
juice man - that was really funny. however i hope i don't get a call from HR after opening that at work lol.
glamma, my family got me a complete set of floorplan dishes for x-mas.
right on cue.
... where cue = crazy uninteresting emetic
Btw, AR is flat out lying about her looks. Only truth is she's not 25 which is probably a good thing for her daughter. And Alan is hot.
Well garshk, Liz, thanks ... but that's you all over (both hot yourself AND flattering, I mean)!
Glamma! You are a GODDESS! At last I can afford the penthouse apartment of my dreams!
File those plates under must-haves.
too bad I can´t make it this time!!
By the way, where is 3Oyrs lately. I met him last meeting, and, as one could have expected, he is a lively conversationalist....I miss his thorough, didactic posts.
mimi, i'll see you soon. but too bad you can't be there.
yes, there are some people we miss. high on my list is divvie, 30yrs, tenemental, cc. i also miss happyrenter, now owner, who shows up sometimes, but was one of my partners in political beliefs. LP was great, and showed up the other day.
liz, you shouldn't have. you're an awesome babe (riding cowboys, f'ng awesome). i'll bring the novel.
ugh, what a useless asshole.
who cares? he's not banned, he's just not here. i actually admire his restraint.
what an accomplishment you can claim. maybe you can tell your grandchildren about it. i devoted umpteen hours to following and harrassing someone i didn't like on the internet.
they'll be impressed, i'm sure.
hsf, it was appropriate. you're the one fixated on toilets. i got a new one and moved on.
he is not banned. really. you are banned, i suspect you are on vacation this week. the implications of which are kind of sad.
you are the reason i will never leave this site. ever.
so, this is basically a group of old, fat, left wing ideologues? ;)
if there's a chance that a radical few might break off and discuss Lost in a corner, i might be tempted to attend :)
uwsmom, you can't be old, fat and enjoy Lost? despite w67th's recent scathing reviews of the season? (which has noting to do with being old and fat).
attend, damn you, attend.
wait, Lost was discussed here?! For realz???
hsf, you should write for Palin. she too totally misconstrues everything she reads (not much), hears, or is told.
i know you have an agenda, it's clear, but your hatred for me has made you into a caricature. fine, 95% of the people think you're a fool. why do you do this? you obviously lie and distort and hate. for what reason? to look stupid?
i knew it had something to do with the sotomayor thread. i knew it, you showed up shortly after that. i'll have to go back and review. sorry that i don't like a judicial process that involves uncalled for intimidation and often scorn.
and not true at all. there are plenty of people i like, many of them on this board. and everyone here who knows me knows how much i love my family. many have met my husband. you constantly point to my "scorn" for my family. prove it.
i was very pro-hilary. when obama won i gave money to him. i supported obama in every way (my husband was an obama supporter, not clinton). when he named his economic team i was horribly worried. people on this board told me i was idiotic to be concerned about the geithner appointment because he had spent his life as a public servant. who the hell is most likely to want to parlay that position into a private job?
but enough. now i know from whence you came. you're entirely misguided. but such is life.
oh stop with the spellling shit. who pays attention to every word they write on an anonymous blog? unless of course they have issues. yeah, and the astrologer, just making up more shit?
are you showing up for the next SE event? and announcing who you are?
i wonder why? or why not?
you're a cowardly, nasty, and unliked piece of shit. congratulations on your achievements here. you have spent months trying to discredit certain people but instead you've gotten nowhere. good work.
one of my favorite Arrested Development scenes ever - GOB, dramatically throwing the letter into the ocean says, "return from whence you came!". LOL! Almost as funny as when Oscar says to Michael, "maybe I'll stick it in her brownie. AHAHAHAHA. Good stuff!!
Anyway, ar and 10023 - you both have mail :)
Meh I am a very hot mama. Even w67 would agree.
streeteasy - you really should get hold of a bottle of Medea vodka. You can program a message in lights that goes around the outside of the bottle - would be great as a beacon on the bar for all the SE faithful.
I'm going to come, can't wait to meet (remeet) everyone.
Ima come and introduce myself as Alpine/The President...
I had a surprising private conversation with hfscomm1 earlier tonight. We were talking at a disgruntled workers meet-up, and lo and behold with some of the mannerisms, we instantly recognized each other. We had a very fruitful conversation, and we thought that perhaps the persona known as hfscomm1 is merely understood. So, I'll relate what hfscomm1 told me so that we may understand better. Apologies if I didn't get the words exactly right, hfscomm1. But it went something like this:
"The details of my life are quite inconsequential.... Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize; he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament... My childhood was typical: summers in Rangoon... luge lessons... In the spring, we'd make meat helmets... When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds — pretty standard, really. At the age of 12, I received my first scribe. At the age of 14, a Zoroastrian named Vilmer ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum — it's breathtaking... I suggest you try it."
absof'nglutely brilliant. my favorite is the "he invented the question mark." although the shorn scrotum must follow closely behind. evil.
nada, are you attending the SE event?
I might. I kinda like not knowing who is who, creating people, faces, and lives to go with the posts. On the other hand, the lure of a free drink speaks very strongly to my cheap bastard ethos.
nada, i think we may share some cheap bastard qualities.
In some cultures, putting "f'n" in the middle of as many sentences as possible is very important. I have a Scottish friend, and I was practicing my Scottish accent some with him. He said I sounded like a grandpa, and then he told me all I needed to do was to stop using articles ("the") and inject "f'n" as often as possible. Once I started doing that, I was on my way.
BTW, a great article on Scotland's scourge that my friend says is entirely accurate:
Will they be serving Buckie at Wildwood?
