Talk about the New Yorker over cocktails.

We will talk about life, world events and anything else worthy of conversation over happy hour drinks.

By popular demand, here is a FAQ for this meetup.

Q: I only look at the cartoons and never really read the articles. May I still attend?

A: Yes.

Q: I used to read the New Yorker but I haven't recently. May I still attend?

A: Yes. We are about like-minded people getting together and socializing. There will be no test on recent issues.

Q: Are we going to cover specific articles or have designated articles we should read ahead of time?

A. Absolutely not. I have no doubt that people will talk about their favorite recent articles. But this is really about just getting together and socializing. Note, I choose a bar for the next meeting.

    I really liked the idea and the people, but the venue makes it hard to hear, I recommend a quieter place like a coffee shop

    So glad I finally showed up for this. Very nice people, interesting conversation. I'll be back.

    Would be great if someone could come up with a quieter venue, and close to BART or an area that's served by lots of Muni buses/trains.

    Enjoyed meeting everyone and enjoyed The Brixton. If we return possibly we could the manager to lower the music a little, or sit further back. I liked the informality.

    Great people, however the location was so noisy, I couldn't hear anyone except if they were sitting next to me
    Next time can we try a coffee shop
    There is a quiet one on Clement Street again called " The Blue Danube"
    It has good food and most of all it is quiet with comfortable chairs and a couch

    I was thinking recently, wouldn't be nice if readers of The New Yorker got together? Number one question I get: are you from New York? (No!)

    Have these New Yorker MeetUps been moved back to the Marina, rather than having them the Financial District? Just wondering.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
