*Maybe*.

I'm trying to figure out if my visiting cousin wants to do dinner on Friday or Saturday.

Wait, you want... an app to talk to everyone while there in person?

Or am I misunderstanding this
I think he wants a Discord channel to coordinate during the event proper as opposed to checking the thread for updates. The idea has been tried before without much success.

You have to ask your girlfriend permission to go out with friends? I find that odd unless you guys had plans already.

It depends on how serious they are. Living together? Engaged? LTR? Yea, probably give her a head's up. Different apartments? New relationship? Nah son.

That makes sense. Relationships are a commitment with compromises. Being constantly dating, it's not something I think about since I've never been in a serious/committed relationship.

OKay that was my other read of it... Discord wasn't tried... it was Slack right?

Maybe like a Whatsapp group or something

I don't know!

Wish I could go to this but I'll be up in the Catskills this weekend. Maybe next time.

Sounds like you'll have a better time!

Yup, Slack was tried not Discord. Discord seems to be what all the cool kids are into these days since it requires a username AIM style as opposed to an email address to add people. Whatsapp requires a phone number so pick your poison.
We have a standing sat night thing.

Also we live together, it was just valentines, etc.
Ah that puts things into perspective and makes a lot more sense.
wow, it just so happens i will be in New York on that very day. What a pity i'm not 21 yet
Fear not because another brave 20 year old has managed weasel his way into bars pretty well for the most part except in cases where there was a bouncer outside and wouldn't budge. *cough Crayons*

Bars in NYC are pretty loose about that whole "carding" thing.

The problem is when you find a bar that is strict

Poor Crayons had to hang out across the street last time.

This is what I have so far

Tired or not, I'm still hoping to be there. My ideal game plan is to get a few dollar pizza slices at the 2 Bros on 38th and 8th and be there by around 6:45. However, since I know a few friends that are going to be working that gig, they might want to get something to eat together meaning that I would be a latecomer. This is why I'm on the fence but I'm playing it completely by ear tomorrow.

If anyone is still on board with the Discord channel idea, that can be arranged and done.

Hahaha, I like how everyone thinks that EviLore is appearing until they realize that it's the 5th year anniversary of the EviLore meetup. Sorry to disappoint lurkers. It would be funny if people turn out in droves regardless.

Welp the gig was a bust because I never got a confirmation email. Not sure if I'll stay downtown for several hours and stand by or go home then come down around 6.

I'm going to need some serious convincing to come to this.
You can build your portfolio and shoot an "event." You can take as much pics of me as you want. :p

I'm in Union Square with the bro. I'm going to stay downtown after all. Might go to The Whitney for an hour or two since it's open until 10. If anyone wants to rendezvous, let me know. I already ate though so food is out of the question for me at the moment.

It varies.

I mean meet up at bars so usually drinking involved. But I mean a ton of talking about stuff. Some games. Card and board. Food. Walking around the city or whatever area we're at.

Aren't forced to drink or anything. Some folks just like to hang out and make friends.

I likely won't be drinking but I am still coming. Worst case scenario: we all bitch about frame rates and resolutions in person for a change.

Is it a once a year thing? Cant do it this time, but next time I'd probably go.
