Dramabeans Meetup in NYC

Hey guys, the date of the Dramabeans Meetup is fast approaching, so we wanted to give you the final details of when and where to come meet us. If you’re in the New York area, stop by The 13th Step for a drink and talk dramas with the DB crew, including our lovely recap minions. We’ll be in the Vice & Virtue Room (we wanted vice only but damn that virtue had to tag along). It is a 21+ event, so you have two weeks to get your fakes made. [A joke! Hahahaha, nervous laughing, totally not serious or endorsing criminal activity in any way.]

DATE: Thursday, April 11, 2013
TIME: 7pm – 10pm
PLACE: The 13th Step (in the East Village), Vice & Virtue Room
MAP & DIRECTIONS: nycbestbar.com/13thstep/contact-directions.php

If you need to contact us the day of, feel free to email or tweet us (@javabeans and @girlfriday_db), or scream, “Omagaaaawd it’s Lee Min-ho!” and head in the general direction of the ensuing stampede. But since I’m pretty sure there will be heels and liquor involved, we recommend the first two options.

If you have questions, ask ’em here!

I guess the meetups in our respective countries will have to make do. I'm still sad about living halfway across the globe but it's not my fault that Malaysia is so darn far for the US,so there goes. CHEER UP YEOROBUN! There will be pictures up(I hope!) for us to sort of get the feel of it.

I'm pretty low maintenance, and let go of many things my heart wants but sometimes there are some things that I just always wish I had. This is going to be one of those things.

Regardless, I'm sending out lots and lots of warm and positive vibes for the meet up. Wishing all those that go much merriment and amusement!

I won't be able to be in NY, however, I hope to be able to attend one of the meetups one day. Hopefully, this will happen again, maybe once or twice a year. Thank you JB and GF for organizing this. I am sure you guys will have a lot of fun...

The 13th Step
It's between a Starbucks and a Thai restaurant, The Holy Basil. How do I know this? I street viewed it.
Thank you, Googles!

I will be there with my friend who doesn't watch dramas but loves THT anyway.
I cannot tell you how excited I am.

Just wondering, if 12% of that number of folks who said they would go actually go, that is over 200 people.
(Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Who else will go? All your minions, gummi, kaedejun, both of her 2 Heads?

I am seriously reconsidering my earlier decision to be a responsible adult and not use ANOTHER two days of vacation in support of my K-obsession. (I do not regret ONE MOMENT of my trip to see the Boys Who Bang)

I may just swoop in late in the day on Thursday and swoop out again in the morning. Have laptop, can work remotely. I don't have to tell the people I reschedule WHY I need to be in NYC suddenly.

No fun being a responsible adult.

Go go go! (In place of those of us that can't. Though truth be told, if I could, I probably wouldn't, because I'm too shy. Took my fellow London K/J-film bloggers nearly a year to meet me. One even told me I was as elusive as an obake. :-D)

Well it also turns into a $500-$600 trip between trains, hotels, cabs, BOOZE...there's also that part of the responsible adulthood being a drag. But man, I've scoped out the trains I'm looking at hotels...I know exactly where this is - between St. Mark's Place and Astor Place.

UGH.

JoAnne: Just as anxiety that I booked a room in KTown and the event is somewhere else in the city had me frightened about making in around the scary big city, I see that you are coming to the event and I am back into super excited mode. Yeah!

Please, if anyone else is going back to Hotel Stanford after the event and wants to share a cab, let Julia know. (Will it narrow it down that I am a white haired 50 year old woman?)

0

Julia, I look forward to meeting you! - The Stanford, I should have just done that. I got a place in the East Village thinking I would just stay down that end.

I found what looks like a pretty decent restaurant not all that far from the venue, too - NY Tofu House - soondubu! galbi! soju! bibimbap! ddukbokki! But there's tons of choices, and you're staying IN KTown. I was very happy with Silla when I was last in that neighborhood.

NY Tofu House? What's the NY Tofu House?

*salivating*

It's one of those restaurants that is mostly known for soondubu jigae, but you can order other stuff too - I like my soondubu with beef and kimchi and a side of galbi! My friend likes the soondubu with seafood. You can get it with chicken, pork, more tofu, it's yummy!

They also serve the short ribs (galbi) and bibimbap in the stone pots and all that kind of thing. Hungry already!

Julia and Joanne and whomever else wants - let's do lunch, or dinner or breakfast -whichever works.
We can try to meet up earlier on Thursday or on Friday.
My arrival time will depend on traffic into the city.
We could get there as early as 1pm*

Just booked mine too! I'll be staying at InterContinental New York Barclay Hotel, if anyone is going near Grand Central. Priceline has awesome price, btw, if you do your own bid!

Let me check out the room first, but if we don't go karoake, having somewhere to have an afterparty would be awesome. :)

Lol, no no! Though it does look like it.

It's my nickname "Candi" with the 'x' as a variable for 'd'. It happened on another site where I was creating a username and since I'm bad at it, I just wanted to use my nickname but it was taken. So I stuck an 'x' where the 'd' was. I liked how it looked, so I now I use this name for a bunch of things, lol.

In the east village? Since it's the city, I'd expect it to be pretty crowded. You can try looking it up for around the area (maybe there is a parking lot near by), but I expect you'd probably have to park a block or so away somewhere and then walk to the bar.
