    I think what I will do tomorrow if I get a chance is to draft up a poll of sorts with the date (already set) and options such as what time for various activities?, dinner?, who is staying over?, and possibilities for Sunday. I'll post it here and send a PM to everyone who has responded on this thread so that nobody misses it.

    We can see what everyone wants to do and take it from there.

          Alright ladies and germs. I am sending this message to everyone that posted in the meet-up thread via PM and will also post the info in the thread itself. The screen names of everyone getting the message will be at the bottom also.

          What we have nailed down so far::

          1. Date: Saturday June 7th and possibly into Sunday June 8th if people stay over in NYC

          2. Place: New York City

          3. Time: Early afternoon on Saturday (most likely)
          What we need to figure out::

          1. What we all want to do. Karen came up with the idea of a harbor cruise on Saturday afternoon possibly involving lunch on the boat. Even if we do a regular ol' sightseeing cruise it would be a whole lot of fun and we could do lunch or dinner afterwards.

          Any other ideas? I will keep sort of a vote list on my computer to see what everyone is into.

          2. What to do on Saturday evening for people staying till that time of day and/or staying the night in NYC? There are thousands of bars, clubs and restaurants to choose from. Perhaps some of our NYC residents can suggest some ideas?

          3. Hotel info. If everyone staying the night wanted to be in the same hotel we need to figure out a location. We might even be able to get group rates if there are enough of us.

          4. The idea of doing brunch on Sunday morning was brought up. If there are people that can not make it on Saturday, Sunday might be a chance to get together with everyone. We need a location for that as well.

          That's about all I can think of for right now. Hopefully we can get some details planned relatively soon. If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, etc. post them up in the thread.

          Both Karen and I are so excited about this. It will be so nice to get to meet all of you (except Kelly & Everton.... not that we are not excited, we already met and became instant friends with them). Hope to see all of you real soon!

          List of people interested so far.....(please add to it if I forgot anyone or you know of anyone else who might be interested).

          Alyssa, Heidi, Christine, lauren c., lambert13, JessicaLovesBrian, Lizz, dragonfly, amandalovesryan, MelissaH, jamisoncollette, TA Jill, starchild, JUSTUSTWO, NYJen, carly, TammyB, lucky k72, berliewed08, becks, Jenn, froggie1013, tlomlad, Nrvsbride

            Thanks for the message Jay. I think if you guys figure out a hotel first, we can kind of work around there. Because there are so many different areas to hang out in, this may help us narrow it down. I'm putting in my vote to stay out of Times Square. It's so touristy and I'm just not a fan. I like the Chelsea area, there are tons of great restaurants and bars around 23rd St. Anyone else have certain areas they would like to go? I work in the city so I'm there 5 days a week. I would much rather let those who are rarely there get to see what they want.

                I just pm'd Jason back but thought I'd let everyone know that Steve & I won't be able to make it either.

                My Fathers business 30th Anniversary celebration is that weekend and since I'm the organizer of the event, I guess I need to be there, lol!

                You guys are going to have so much fun, I'm so bummed that we can't go! But hopefully it will work out great and we can do it again soon!

                  John & I aren't going to be able to make it either. I've gotten a job offer that I think I'm going to take and with the way the unit I'm going to is backed up I doubt I'll have any time off at all for the next 3 years...boo

                    Since you know NY I am good with you suggesting the hotel for us. You are most likely our best source of info for our weekend. Why don't you throw some hotel's out there for us to decide on. I would rather stay away from the really touristy part also, good restauraunts and bars thats all I need!

                      I'm actually no NY expert. I'm one of those crazy commuters that rides the train for an hour and a half each way to get to work. I've never actually stayed over in the city, but I can certainly look at some hotels in certain areas for you guys. I'll do my best Kelly!
