    The First place that came to mind is Broadway Arcade in Times Square. The area thats now called the E-Walk (Ewok) The arcade is not so bad, kind of expensive for the games, The have 3 SW games, Pod Racer which is awesome, a sit down game, but is $2.50 for a 2 minute games, The Classic Trilogy game, and Episode 1 Pinball. Its right near 2 Movie theaters and across from a food court which would not be a bad place to eat.
    Just something to consider.

    A couple of my friends when a while back and did not have much good to say about it(both SW fans) and it cost about $20 to get in.

    How about meeting at Jeckle & Hydes?

    There's one on 6th Ave. and another in the Village. If anyone never heard of it, it's a horror themed restaraunt,rude waiters are part of the gimmick AND you don't get "banned" for flaming the waiter back...LOL

    I have been to J & K, the place is really cool, but for personal reasons I do not want to go back. Don't ask!

    They opened up an internet Cafe in Times Square. SOmething to consider, but then again do we need to play on computers in person.

    Hey folks whats going on.I personally have got no problem with a meeting at a bar/club but we have to keep in mind those of the forum that unfortunatly are not of legal drinking age.The idea MysterySith had about an internet cafe sounds cool we could have the meeting & post live on the forum about whats happening for those of us that can't make it.Talk later.

    It would be beyonf awesome to have a Star Wars or Even Lucas film theme store/resteraunt in Times Square. They have enough themes places already, why not another GREAT one.

    The Internet Cafe is at the top of my list to meet, and there is pleanty to do in the Ewok(E-Walk) area of Times Square.

    I stopped by the new internet Cafe in Times Square today, its pretty cool, especially if you feel the need to check the forum while you are in the middle of Times Square. I stopped in and for $1, only $1 through the 8th I think. I got 5 hours worth of Net time, its good for 28 days. I am not sure how much it will go up to after the promo. Now, about meeting there, I am not sure about it, since they do not have a table that a group could sit at, well I did noy see one at least. I did not check the second floor. We could all get a row and log in and post here at once. That would be kind of funny. We could also check out a movie depending on what is playing, 2 theaters right there. There is no shortage of places to eat there either.

    Something to plan for after the new year.

    I heard that mars2112 got back mudslides, I would go there just for a drink, the food stinks and the Flying saucer outside is annoying.

    LOL!! Jandimin you crack me up :)

    Yes BobaPhil, Mars 2112 is a very, very, evil place. It's filled with the darkside of the force.

    Hey BobaPhil,it's not the place itself(Mars2112)that bites it's just that we tried about 2 months ago to have a meeting there & theres just to much stuff we had to do.I really like MysterySith's idea about the internet cafe but keep the suggestions coming in after all it's an NYC group effort & the more suggestions the better.Thanks folks.Talk later.

    read this in the zagat survey, may be an option- Galaxy Global Eatery- "conveniently located next to irving plaza, this funky, space themed restaurant and bar draws an alternative urban crowd with it's interesting star speckled ceiling out-of-this-world cocktails and a global fusion menu that plays up the merits of hemp." the prices seem reasonable...

    No, night it does not look like that, looks more like a Library/Cafeteria with 800 computers and people to match.

    Greetings MysterySith,

    I'm game! What are your suggestions for having a meeting? Manhattan is a very big place, but I'm sure that we can figure out something.
