The LispNYC group hosts an annual summer party, which they graciously invite all FP groups to. It's always a great event, and I encourage everyone to attend. You can RSVP directly here; no need to also RSVP at LispNYC. Here's their announcement:
Welcome to the Lisp Invitational Summer Party! This is an annual LispNYC major social event in which we get together with several other programming meetup groups to share food and spirits and stimulating company and conversations.
This year, unfortunately, we will not be able to actually BBQ. Therefore we encourage you to all to bring pre-cooked food and pre-fermented beverages to the annual summer social.
The party on the roofdeck will run from 6:00PM untll 10:00PM at which point some brave subset of us will head over to a cool local neighborhood bar. So,from 10:00PM on, please join us at Cleopatra's Needle, conveniently located a block away from the roofdeck on Broadway between 92nd and 93rd Streets on the west side of the street and head towards the back room there. This an awesome yearly event and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
LispNYC will generously provide some initial quantity of Pizza, Beer and Soda in order to bootstrap the event.
