I’m promised readers an informal gathering in a public spot (as in come on by and join me for a drink), and I now have a date and venue.
Cafe Centro, 45th Street between Lex and Vanderbilt, south side of the street (this is the north side of Grand Central Terminal). If the weather doesn’t get in the way, there is a lot of seating outside, and the sidewalk is very wide, so it’s pleasant and open (I think dining en plein air is overrated in the city, but this place is an exception).
I’ll be there at 6:30 PM on Monday, August 23. Do check the blog the day of the meeting just to make sure there hasn’t been a change of plans.
Look forward to seeing you!
