> - Where: Annie Moore's, 50 E 43rd Street, betw. Madison & Vanderbilt Ave.

> Dan's eaten at this restaurant before, and they're an upbeat, clean,
> tourist-free place, with a wide range of good food at decent prices (it's

> The way this generally works is that we meet up around 7-7:30pm in Javitz

> want to use the convention shuttle, since the M42 bus no longer goes to
> Javitz, but the con shuttle does go to Grand Central, and runs until
> 8:30pm. If the shuttle's a no-go, or if you miss the group, you can hoof
> it up to 42nd Street and catch the crosstown bus there or share a cab. (If
> you decide to walk, please try to go with a group - the West Side is still
> pretty sketchy until well, Broadway, IMO.)
> Any questions, ask away. Hope to see some new faces and some old faces!
