Let's Explore Williamsburg

*** This event is now open for RSVPs since we've settled on a reservation and cancellation policy, which will be in effect for this event. Please read that policy, which you can find at http://www.meetup.com/Lets-Explore-New-Yorks-Neighborhoods/pages/RSVP_and_Cancellation_Policy/). ***

Check out Brooklyn's trendiest neighborhood with us! We will visit McCarren Park, the giant Domino Sugar Factory (yes, the one with the big sign you've seen across the East River), Smorgasburg (a weekly food festival from the organizers of Brooklyn Flea), the Kings County Savings Bank (a landmark 1867 building), and the restaurants and shops along Bedford Avenue, among other attractions. Afterward, we'll catch a tour at the Brooklyn Brewery, if we get there on time, and sample their beverages. The tour is free, but you have to pay for the beer. (You didn't think you'd get that for free, did you?) Also, they ask that people taking the tour do not wear open-toe footware, since it is a working brewery.

I'll send out the meeting location and contact information to everyone on the RSVP list a few days before the event. If you are on the "yes" list and haven't gotten this information by June 7, please e-mail me directly. Fingers crossed for nice weather...

*** Additional info: If you sign up with guests, it will be hard to be moved from the waitlist to the "yes" list, because Meetup automatically admits people when the right number of spots open up, and usually only one spot opens up at a time. Therefore, I recommend that everyone who wants to attend should sign up individually (with no guests) so that you can be added to the "yes" list more quickly. ***

    Marc, thanks for the informative and entertaining meetup. The tour was quite enjoyable, and it was good to meet and talk with new and interesting people. I hope to attend future meetups of the group. Thanks again.

    The rain is supposed to end tomorrow morning, so we are on! You might want to check the weather in the morning and bring an umbrella just in case, but right now it looks like it will be a nice day.

    Unless you end up cancelling this & rescheduling - I am sorry I won't be able to attend & I was really hoping to make this one :(

    Love Williamsburg, but sounds like rain tomorrow.

    sorry - out of town for the weekend

    June 7, 2013

  • MD

    I hate to do this, but I need to cancel due to a work issue. But having been to the last tour, I know that someone who comes off the waiting list will thank me. :)

    I work Saturdays, so I will look for Sunday events.

    Sorry, I had something scheduled for Jun 8 already.

    I will be away on June 8, looking forward to your next event.

    I will be away on June 8th. So disappointed. Hope you do Williamsburg again. Have a great time everyone!

    Everyone who has nothing to do due to the rain, should consider touring the vintage trains on display at Grand Central Terminal this weekend.

    Grand Centennial Parade of Trains

    May 11 – 12, 2013 | 10AM-4PM
    Vanderbilt Hall, Tracks 34-37, and other locations in Grand Central

    I agree with the move to postpone given the threat of a torrential downpour. I'm available for the 6/8 rescheduled date. I'll await the meeting location as it becomes available.

    May 10, 2013

  • Marc

    Mother Nature is unfortunately not cooperating this weekend, with a 60-70% chance of showers tomorrow ... so we are postponing Williamsburg until June 8th. We hope to see you all then!

      Too bad! I trust we don't have to RSVP again if we were confirmed for tomorrow and are available June 8th?

      May 10, 2013

    • Marc

      Nope, your current RSVP still stands!

      May 10, 2013

  • Elizabeth B.

    I think you made the right decision for tomorrow. Unfortunately, I can't come on June 8 since we have plans for that weekend.

    Hey, I have just got a place - where are we meeting please?

    May 10, 2013

    • Marc

      Sending you the details now, please check your email

      May 10, 2013

  • Elizabeth B.

    Like another member, I still intend to come if the weather is OK tomorrow. But if the forecast is the same as it is now, with a 60% chance of rain, I won't come along. It's really hard to give 24-hour notice when the weather is so questionable. If the forecast doesn't change by this evening, I hope you'll decide to postpone.

    May 10, 2013

    • Marc

      If the weather is supposed to be bad tomorrow, then we'll postpone the event.

      May 10, 2013

  • JB

    Is the M train fromBway/Lafayette the only way to get to Hewes, Williamsburg from Manhattan? Looks like no connection w/#6 line? Thx!!

    May 9, 2013

    • JB

      Thx - Is there any contact info out yet? Where are we to meet?

      May 10, 2013

    • Marc

      You should have gotten an email from me yesterday. Let me know if you didn't get it and I'll re-send.

    Hi, Marc,
    Sorry, I have to cancel, encounter some problems that prevent me from going. Hope, somebody will take my spot :-)

    Hi Marc, was really looking forward to this but I have to cancel due to a scheduling conflict.

  • Young P.

    I have been looking forward to this walk but I know for sure that I will not come if it's raining as predicted. I would hate to be marked as a no-show if you decide to do the walk despite the weather! Hope it's nice this Saturday so that we may do this walk. :)

    May 9, 2013

  • Elizabeth B.

    I'm worried about the weather since they're predicting rain for Saturday. Any chance you might postpone in case of rain?

      Marc and I discussed the weather this AM and will try to make a weatherman decision tomorrow around 6P. Stay tuned.

    Funny New York Times article, "How I Became a Hipster," mostly about Williamsburg: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/02/fashion/williamsburg.html. Unfortunately, we won't be making it to most of the places mentioned...

    Sorry but have to cancel. See you at the next walk.

  • Olivia

    Hi Marc, I seem to be missing the sign ups and winding up on the wait list. How do you notify members of future/pending walks? I find out by checking to see if I'm off the wait list. Is there another way in order to sign up sooner?

    April 29, 2013

    • Marc

      Are you getting the announcements? If you go under "my profile" and then click "email and notifications" there should be an option for you to receive messages from the group. That way you will get an e-mail as soon as a new event is announced.

      April 29, 2013

  • Ann K.

    I'm sorry I will miss this! Again - the Harlem walk was
    really enjoyable/fun!

    April 21, 2013

  • Olivia

    I'm the 4th person wait listed. Do you go in order? Want to attend and keep the day open if that is how this works.

    April 18, 2013

    • Marc

      Yes, generally people who sign up earlier come off the waitlist sooner.

      April 18, 2013

    Hi Miriam, I don't know why that happened. I signed you up, and in the future you can contact Meetup's technical support at http://www.meetup.com/help/contactus/. I hope that helps!

    Although 5 spots are left, I'm having difficulties registering. Please advise (I have never been a no-show)

      Hi Miriam. Make sure you log in as this system does seem to be temperamental today. I just tried and it was sporadic at best. We look forward to seeing you.
