5 Guys Burger + Cronut + Downtown Walk

Meet: Washington Square Park under the arch at 11:30 am. If the arch is fenced off, just look for the group of people closest to the arch or call me at [masked] and I'll wave you over to where we are. 

Hang: For 20 mins to get to know each other and wait for everyone to arrive. We depart at 11:50 on the dot so please come on time.

Stop #1 - 5 Guys Burger and Fries - These guys keep winning awards and contests for having the best burger. A regular burger costs around $5 and all toppings are free. We'll grab lunch here before heading to the next spot.

Stop #2 - Dominique Ansel Bakery for a Cronut. What's a Cronut you ask? Well if you don't know, and you should, a Cronut is a and it's the must-have of must-haves, something one must consume before they die, a.k.a. bucket list, etc, etc. If you are familiar with Cronuts and you want more, come. If you've never had a Cronut, you must try one. I for one have never had one so I must and you must come with me. Done. Expect a long-ass line for a Cronut, but that's ok cuz we can talk to each other in the line and bond. 

If you only want to eat a burger and not eat a Cronut, dont. If you want to skip the burger and only eat a Cronut, do. If you'd prefer to not eat a burger nor a Cronut, fine, but what fun would that be? Still it's your choice.  

Walk: After the Cronut the plan is to walk it off along the water following this route: http://goo.gl/maps/FFNmg - If anyone is inclined to continue walking we can. 

If you are new to this group or new to Meetup altogether, this is a great event to help break you in. Also, there are always new people, probably around 80% of the people to any event are new so you will not be alone + I am the bestest host there ever was and I'll make sure you have fun. 

If you have any questions prior to or on the day of the event, please do not hesitate to give me (Beau) a call at [masked] 

Rain: No go. Snow is a go. =)

    Hi Everyone, There seems to be a lot of people who are intent on raining on our parade by assuring us Cronut's are sold out by 9am and while that might be true I plan on calling Con Edison to report a gas line break earlier in the day so by the time we show up there's plenty of Cronut's to be had. Nah, but the fact of the matter is that they are probably correct and Cronut's will be sold out by the time we arrive at around 1pm, BUT who cares. This event is not about Cronut's or burgers. It's about people meeting people and having fun. If the Cronuts are sold out, we'll satisfy our sweet tooth somewhere else along the way. If anyone has any must-have baked good suggestions from below this location: http://goo.gl/maps/LNW1g­ I'm all ears. Alternatively we can grab coffee and a donut from Dunkin' Donuts. I'm a Boston Kreme man. Just sayin. =)

      By the way, if the Cronut's are in fact sold out, I did some research and there's a bakery not far from 5 Guys Burger that sells knockoff donuts similar to Cronuts and I can call them to see how many they have left: http://www.millefeuil...­

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
