Michael- Steve H suggested this restaurant, Haymaker, on West 29th St. Looks like it will fill the bill of not being too pricey, more a comfort food place. I'm not sure I even want to pick a place- would you like to? But please at least look at Haymaker and let's consider it.

Looks decent. Nice spread of Bourbons.

I'm easy...as long as the food, drinks and atmosphere are fantastic.

Also, we gotta make sure any of these places can accommodate our size group...that'll be the deciding factor.

I will give Haymaker a call Monday and get a feel of how they can seat say a group of around 12-15. I'll report back afterwards.

I just called Haymaker on 29th Street and was told that they have room for large parties such as ours. For more than ten people, I would have to email the manager to make arrangements. And the woman said if one or two extra show up, it will be no problem accommodating everyone. That is all good news.

Before I make a reservation, I'd like to wait at least a day to see if we have any other suggestions for a venue. I will also do a head count and list everyone who so far has committed. If you don't see your name on the list and want to come, just post on this thread and I will add it (no PM's or emails, please, let's keep everything in one place).

There is a link to Haymaker at post #101. It looks friendly and casual, and not super pricey. I will still listen to others. Now is the time as we should have a reservation locked in over the next couple of days.

Okay, no suggestions to counter Haymaker. So we are now confirmed for June 14, and I am going to choose Haymaker as our restaurant. It will be a first for all of us, but what is the worst that can happen? I would say let's meet for drinks at 6:00, and we can set a 6:30 time for a sit down dinner.

Now in order to make a reservation, we need a fairly accurate headcount. Again, if we are off by a couple it won't matter, but I think it's fair to ask people for a commitment.

Here is what we have so far for sure:

Judy and Barry S.
Charlotte and Ted Z.
Michael S
Steve H
Pete U
Jason S
Jon W
Judson H
Carl P
Keith T

Now we have a few, such as Jamie B and Judson H, who committed to our first date but haven't done so for the 14th. If you are still in please post. I received to emails, from Aaron and Keith T., and I have a friend Michael O who reads the board but doesn't post but may join us. Also Scott R was a maybe. It would be a great help to let me know for sure.

So we have 10 commits but too many maybes to make the reservation. Let's say everyone who still wants to come to please post by 3:00 PM tomorrow, and then I will contact the restaurant. Everyone is welcome so all you have to do is post and you're in. And if I accidentally missed your name please let me know. Thanks all!

Just a reminder that I will be contacting the restaurant later this afternoon to make a reservation. If you want to join us and your name does not appear on the list at post #106, now is the time to let me know. Again, everyone is welcome. Don't be shy.

Okay, looks like we have thirteen commits plus the possibility of one or two more. I am about to contact the restaurant to make a reservation. I'll request seating for about fifteen, with drinks at 6:00 and dinner at 6:30. I'll get back to you after they respond.

Yes, I know Seinfeld very well.

Sorry you can't make it. There will always be another dinner down the road.

Okay, we have a reservation. The Haymaker just offered us their back room, so we will get to party and make a little hay (sorry about that, I couldn't resist, it was just sitting there). We should all meet starting at 6:00, although I will get there early since it's my gig. I'll revive this thread on the morning of the 14th with all the pertinent information. The backroom gives us the opportunity to add extra people in case we have some last minute arrivals. Should be a fun evening.

That's great Michael. The restaurant will give us two tables that can be combined into one if we choose.

They asked me to call the day before to confirm and give them a head count, so if anyone decides at the last minute they want to join and can post on this thread, that would be helpful. Obviously, if we are off by one or two they will accommodate.

Good morning all. Tomorrow night is our dinner and a couple of names have already dropped off the list. I will call the restaurant late this afternoon to make the reservation, so if your name is not on it at post #106 and you would like to join, please let me know. Likewise, if you're on it and something came up, give a holler and I'll remove it. I will also put all the pertinent information up later today. Look forward to tomorrow.

Okay, I just made our reservation, and it looks like we will be around 10-12 people. Funny, but they told me it will probably be crowded due to the Hall & Oates concert, so you guys called it right.

The restaurant is Haymaker and it's at 252 West 29th Street, which is near the corner of 8th Avenue. We should be able to sit around 6:15-6:30, or whenever we are ready. I will get there around 5:30 or shortly thereafter, so please feel free to get there a little early and meet by the bar. Dress is casual so no worries there.

Look forward to seeing everybody. Any questions or other issues please post them here. I will check the thread up until I leave for Manhattan tomorrow afternoon.

Buzz D- you are welcome to come, but late June won't work. We have a reservation for tomorrow night. I posted the address above at #125 so if you show up we will make a place for you. I guess you haven't been following this thread,

I am already eagerly awaiting an update to how it goes. The one I attended was good... Will always remember the Bruces behavior that night. Weird.

I remember your visit well Leon. And if I recall correctly, didn't Bruce bolt on the check?

Bruce showed up in his limousine, ate his dinner, got up from the table and left without saying goodnight or paying his share of the bill. Wonka picked it up, I believe. Strange but true.

What was Bruce like in person? Different than board persona? The ghosting and bailing on the check seems like 100% board persona.

Bruce was quite different in person, not as combative, but he still sorely lacked social skills. He and I were friends but also always seemed to be at loggerheads about something.

Thank you, Barry, for organizing such a fun event. It was great meeting everyone and my only regret was that I didn't get to spend time talking to everyone! Looking forward to the next one.

Carl- great meeting you too, and we still owe you $10 change. You left a few minutes too soon.
!
Fantastic evening, even if it was a little too loud in the restaurant. Great seeing old friends, and meeting Michael and Jenni, Carl,Jon, and Pete for the first time. It was a great group and we'll have to do it again soon.

And a little later Jenni is going to post a picture to prove we really did get together. Thanks to everyone!

Thanks again Barry for organizing a great evening. It was a pleasure to meet everyone and put faces to the names!

And as promised, here is the photographic proof it actually took place!
