(BETWEEN 9TH & 10TH STREET)
- L Train to 14th Street

- F Train to Second Ave LES
Or really just a walk from any Union Square train
There's cheap beer and shots. A decent beer menu and games upstairs! We plan on hanging out here for like 2-3 hours before moving on to a bar that's less packed in Union Square... on a Saturday night... we'll figure it out!
MeetUp FAQ - Shamelessly stolen
How long have these things been around?
See the OP here for a documented list of all the NYC GAF meet ups to date: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=170651251&postcount=1
But I'm not a social butterfly and prefer to stay home to x activity. Strangers are weird.
”Do not be too timid or too unsure about your actions. All life is an experiment." Yeah, we don't know you and have never met but if you want to get over that, the best way to do it is to go out and socialize. We were all strangers at some point before we met.
I'm banned and/or stopped posting. Can I still come out?
The more, the merrier so feel free to show up!
How many people typically come out?
Typically 10-25 people; it consists of regulars and new comers. We've had GAF members visiting the city from abroad come out and join us as well. If you're not a fan of big groups, like GAF itself, those big groups split up into smaller groups of discussion so no worries.
How long do these meetups last? Do you peeps always meetup at one location or move around the city?
In a nutshell, they go as long as they want so long as there's still a party left long after many people bail. The first location is the jump off point to other places once a decent party shows up.
Do I have to drink to be cool with you all?
Nobody will pressure you to drink so if it's water or soda you want, more power to you. But if you drink, make sure you keep an eye on how much you consume because we preferably want you to get home safe. A couple of GAF members have been unfortunate victims of muggings after we parted ways from past meetups.
But I don't drink and don't wanna be bored
Thanks to the advancement of technology, you can entertain yourself and guests with the latest in gaming! Bring along your Switches, 3DS, Vitas or if you're like Makai tablet and play some games with others!
But I'm poor and I'm trying to be frugal! Rent isn't cheap you know!
We all have bills to pay and are willing to take some of our time to meet up; one night out isn't going to kill your budget. If anything, someone will buy you a drink and/or share food.
Oh no! It's too cold/hot to be outside! You guys are crazy!
Dress accordingly then. While weather is something to keep an eye on, it's not a factor so the show must go on.
This is going to be really awkward isn't it?
It's only awkward if you make it awkward for yourself. You're welcome to bring name tags or get creative.
How do I locate GAFfers once there?
This is always a difficult one for first-timers. Usually it's easy enough to spot a large group, but how do you approach to find out it's the correct large group. Usually, it's best to find the person who looks most approachable and just ask them, most will say yes or no and move on.
Where I can go air out my grievances about how expensive NYC is when there isn't a meetup?
The NYC GAF OT.
