    Hey all you East Coasters in the NY.NJ, CT, PA..

    With Mob starting the thread about visiting this holiday season...

    Any thoughts on an 'unofficial' MLP meetup?

    I'd love to throwdown with you all..

    Maybe a jam at a studio and then head to a diner for coffee and grub?

    It's not to terribly diffucult to plan, and would be alot of fun...

    Yes? No? Maybe???

    so lets start with this -

    NYC???

    November or December???

    Guitar jam/Food????

    Saturday or weeknight???

    Lets start with that... I don't mind spearheadding this, but if we do a jam it's going to cost a few bucks to rent a room for a few hrs and I'll try and find a place near a diner so we don't have to go too far...

    Hollar back...

    Saturdays are rough for me, but I'm thinking that a weeknight would be even rougher for anyone who would want to travel to attend.

    So, in my mind it should be a Saturday.

    And any MLP meetup would be incomplete without a jam, IMO.

    Hopefully, you can schedule it on a Saturday when I don't have a gig. I have a couple of open Saturdays in November, barring new bookings...

    Send me your Saturday schedule. I was thinking theres a studio over on 30th and a diner on the corner... We can have a jam from 6-8 and dinner/coffee from 8-????

    http://www.thestudio.org/

    Victory Diner - Chelsea - New York, NY 10001 | Metromix New York

    We'll see if we can get 10-15 MLP'ers to commit, and we can book it. Thinking either 21st of November or 5th of December...

    Ok.. Just give me some feedback, and Ill put it together...

    I just checked November and December. 11/21 is out - 12/5 looks good.

    I've played in that place before. Pretty nice studio.

    I'd love to attend if I can. I attended a meet/jam a couple years ago in Staten Island with members of the "other LPF". There's YouTube videos of most of it. Bad weather reduced the turnout, but I had a great time.

    They abandoned me up there while they setup for the photo shoot.
    Bunch of cool guitars at the end.

    A guy I just met an hour ago hands me his $8000 Jimmy Page LP.

    Adwex.. The date is tentative for Saturday 12/5... Definetely welcome to come...It's not to going to be too crazy, Im thinking just a basic plug in and jam type of thing, show off your guitar, some pictures, some video of the jam... Then we'll walk a block over for some grub... You are definetely welcome, and Ill make sure you are in the pictures! LOL

    Yeah, A! It'll be about time we get to jam!

    We should keep this kicked for the other NY-area guys to get a look.

    Mob- I'd meet up with you.. Obviously with that being the holiday week, I can't think to switch the general meetup to that week, no one will show.. LOL

    Cool. Being in pics isn't important, I just like to hang with dudes who are into music and guitars. Sounds like a cool way to spend a Saturday.

    That really shouldn't be a problem - there has to be twice that many MLPers in the NY metro area/CT/NJ, thinking off the top of my head.

    We may need to track down a drummer and bass player for the jam - or if somebody has a drummer friend, just drag him along and somebody bring a bass. :D
