      Hi Tom! Planning another one now! It will be live soon!

    I would strongly recommend this event for someone brand new to the NY startup scene. For the veteran expert, you will definitely find this event repetitive (unless you are looking for potential employees).

    I am so glad I am attending. I may be somewhat late due to an earlier meeting 7 blocks away.

    March 5, 2013

  • Atwood

    I have received 4 more otices, within the last 1 to 2 hrs., about open spaces. But when i get to this page, there are no openings!! Who is running your computer? ?

    March 4, 2013

    • Jessica V.

      Yes, that's correct. When a spot opens up it is filled with a person who is already on the waitlist. Apologies for the confusion!

      March 5, 2013

    • Valentina

      I am not able to attend this evening, I was on the waitlist so made other plans. This morning I was confirmed to attend but now I cannot...

  • Josh S.

    Just go anyway...it's meetup 1/3 of the people won't be there regardless.

    Furthermore, another comment indicated that +1 was okay so they obviously have enough room for more.

    March 4, 2013

  • Atwood

    I have received 3 notices saying a spot opened in less than 24 hours, 2 were in about the past 2 hours. But when I went to the sign up page, there were no openings. Should I just sit in front of my computer waiting for an opening until tomorow at 5 pm? Not really practical. Must be a better way.

    I just received an email saying a spot opened up for tomorrow (actually 2 spots) but not sure how the waitlist works... why doesn't the RSVP list just start clearing people off the waitlist in order...?

    If the spot that just opened hasn't been taken, I'd like it!

    March 4, 2013

  • Elizabeth

    I heard there was a cancellation, so I'd like to attend if the spot's not taken already!

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.
