NJ/ NYC meeting: now set for Sun. Jan. 27 @ 9 AM - Edgewater, NJ

I heard about meetings (all makes or specific ones) taking place on thursdays (once a month?) at the Starbucks parking lot on River Road in Edgewater NJ.

Would like to set-up the same for F10 owners.

Close enough to Manhattan (for New Yorkers) with a nice drive (amazing Manhattan views) to get to Edgewater and obviously accessible to all from the surrounding areas in NJ.
I am there often to visit friends and other times to grab some food at the nearby Mitsuwa.

We could also make this a coding meeting. I just got the software up and running last night.

Anyone? Let's pick a day/ time.


EDIT:
Now set for Sun. Jan. 27 @ 9 AM.

Here is the address: 457 River Road, Edgewater, NJ 07020

Thank you everyone - set the day/ time to Sunday AM in the OP.

I am told that parking lot is a zoo on Saturdays. However, most shops are closed on Sunday, so we will have it to ourselves.

This is how they do it on the west coast: http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=791038
Saw this after I created this thread and now have high expectations!

Would love to come but 9am on a Sunday is a bit early since I am about an hour away.

Plus I have my ugly winter wheels on now..

We should def do another one when it gets warmer out.

Alan

Alan - I was going to PM you to invite you.

We need you at this meeting!
Don't worry about not getting there at 9 AM.
We will be there for a few hours I am sure + food perhaps mid-day so it'll be worth the trip if you have time on that day.

what a perfect time to get the new car. Just picked up new 2013 550ix on Friday. I am definitely going to come to the meet. Any help on how to go about coding would be greatly appreciated at the meet. See you all on Sunday. Thanx!

This is a great idea. I will definitely try to come, but it will ultimately come down to how much my newborn will keep me up the night before . . . unless my loving wife will take on night duties . . . ahhh wishful thinking

Sorry guys won't be making this one. My car is completely covered in dirty snow and doubt the roads will be dry enough for a car wash this weekend. Wife aint too happy about me ditching her and the baby either lol.

Def down when the weather gets warmer and when I have my summer wheels back on. There is a M Power meet in march that is coming up. Open to non M's too according to the organizer.

Alan

Guys - We decide to meet and we get a 20 degrees temp. drop and snow. Isn't it great?

But...sunny forecast for tomorrow - 36 degrees.

I don't want to just cancel the meeting: perhaps some of you will brave the winter to get together.

If that's the case, please let me know. I am up for it.
If not, let's postpone.


Alan - no problem, man. We should do the next meeting in Queens and go for some Thai food in Woodside (SriPraPhai).

Steve My Man,

I vote postpone, at least for me the 1.5 hour drive over brine covered, melting roads is too much to put Irene through. I look forward meeting you and other festers, but it's unlikely to be tomorrow.

Sorry my friend.

I'd say postpone. Bad road conditions with a lot of salt.
