    This past meeting it was decided to get togther one weeknight per month, have dinner and chat about all things Star Wars.

    Each month we will pick an area in NY or the surrounding areas and eat then it will be off to the nearest place we can hang out and talk Star wars theory, specualation...whatever topic we pick for that evening.

    So we need to pick the resturant and area of discussion as well as the night to do this. In order to allow all who wish to participate there are a few guidelines

    The resturant must be affordable, complete dinner includng tax and tip should be no more than $15.00 - $25.00 and the cheaper the better! It must be able to easily accomodate the size group for that evening.

    The meeting time sould be no earlier than 7:30 pm to allow those of use who work til 6pm enough time to get where they need to be.

    The resturant should be easily accessible to all via a main bus or train line.

    The resturant should serve food that is agreeable to most tastes. So if you suggest a place look at the menu and make sure people can get at least a choice of chicken, fish, beef and veggies there. Go out for Lambs tongue wrapped in seaweed and drizzled with octopus ink on another night! :D

    The resturant should be willing to allow us to spend at least an hour and a half enjoying our food there.

    Please be advised you can invite people to your house, apt whatever for this as well and can do take out or cook for them. Of course, you can charge a small fee to cover the cost of food or hold a pot luck. But this MUST be open to all who wish to attend, so be prepared to have people over if you choose to have it in your home.

    NO ONE is excluded from attending this social gathering. As long as they are there to have a good time and talk about Star Wars they are to be made welcome. Do not email or IM Meri or any of our staff and complain that so and so is there. If so and so is there and is doing nothing more than enjoying the night out with the rest of us they are more than welcome. You will only get this standard reply if you complain so don't bother! :D

    So let's pick a place topic and night for August!

    I'd like to suggest the first topic be Speculation about Episode 3. This would NOT be a spoiler-free topic, mind you. Any and all suggestions are welcome. :)

    >>Go out for Lambs tongue wrapped in seaweed and drizzled with octopus ink on another night! <<

    Ha ha very funny :D ;)

    Allow me to suggest a place...
    McAleer's Pub on Amsterdam between 80th/81st. It's an Irish pub so there's food for everyone. :)

    Let's make the first one Thursday night, August 8th.

    P.S. The SW chat would get interesting after a few pints ;)

    I definetly like the idea as well. As long as i know ahead of time when it is, i should be able to arange to go to it.. August gets alittle difficult because i'm on a strict training & food schedule until September 14th.

    Most nights are good for me if I know ahead of time. I think Amanda prefers fridays, but if its not too late of a night she can do most nights i think.

    well, the only nights that are bad for me through august are monday's and wednesdays... :/ I work from 5 to 8 pm in the evenings then. When the school semester starts again in September, however, that schedule will change. Otherwise, I really would like to try and do this since I just realized that I'll be missing the summber bash thing on the 20th due to Silent But Deadly 3, which should be fun anyways, but still. :(

    I sure as heck am. Let's do this Thursday August 14th. There's a great delicatessen called Artie's on Broadway between 82nd/83rd, near the 1/9 subway line. Prices are very reasonable (lower than the Stage Deli). :D

    I called Artie's and they do not take reservations. However, if you call about a half hour- one hour ahead and let them know how large the party is, they will see if they can get the space together (nothing guaranteed).
