I’m planning to attend a ScienceBlogger event next weekend. Hope you can join me and Gene Ostrovsky from Medgadget.com
… Here is the email invite I received:
So far, we’re expecting about 50 readers and a dozen ScienceBloggers.
We’ll be meeting at 2:00 pm on Saturday, August 9, at the Arthur Ross Terrace at the American Museum of Natural History. Once there, please head to the cafe tables and chairs set by the trees on the upper terrace, facing the Rose Center. The terrace is accessible from the Theodore Roosevelt Park at 81st Street and Columbus Avenue.
Here’s more information about the site:
This is an outdoor location with tables and shade, which we thought was best for the large numbers we’re expecting. After we’re all assembled in this spot, if smaller groups are interested in grabbing a coffee or sitting in air conditioning, then we’d be happy to point them to one of several nice cafes nearby.
Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested. We’re all very excited to interact with readers in RealSpace!
Addendum: due to overwhelming interest, the venue has changed (Ginny’s new email):
So due to our increasing numbers and the chance of rain, we’ve decided to change the location of Saturday’s Reader Meetup. The new spot will be at a bar on the west side called Social. We’ve reserved a room in the back, and it’s three floors in case we need even more room. We’ll buy the first round of pitchers (alcs and non-alcs).
2pm-4pm on Saturday, August 9
795 8th Ave (close to 48th St.)
New York, NY 10019
