NEW-ISH MEETUP: Nyeek Brooklyn

  Hey gang we have a new-ish location this Tuesday in Brooklyn.

  It's a place called Black Forest Brooklyn.  It's brand spankin' new and it's in the wonderful neighborhood of Fort Greene.  It's in Brooklyn as opposed to Manhattan, but it's still insanely accessible being super close to stops for the 2, 3, 4, 5, D, N, R, B, Q, C, and G trains!  And those are the close ones; it's not actually far from Jay Street - Metrotech which has the A and F trains as well making it basically a Brooklyn "West 4th" station.  Also tons of bus lines!  And bike paths!

  IMPORTANT: Since we will be meeting at new place I do want to reiterate some things.  I know this is probably unnecessary, but if the group likes the location and would like to have events here again it's important that our first impression is a good one.  So always keep in mind these basic things.

  1.  NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINK.  Let's respect the fact that they are a business.

  2.  BUY SOMETHING.  If you drink; buy drinks.  If you don't drink; buy food and maybe pay some bar prices for soda.  And tip!  Let's make them want us to come back!

  3.  BE RESPECTFUL.  Of other people's games and of the bar as well.  When I went there they were on point and professional, but they are new so be patient if they are working some stuff out.

  Also I should point out that unlike Amity Hall on Mondays the place will not be specifically reserved for us.  So there will be a certain element of "first come, first serve."  The place is reasonably big so we might always have seats, but it might not hurt to get there earlier rather than later.  I mean worst come to worst you'll just have to hang out at the bar and drink! 

  Also please RSVP before coming so I have some general idea of what to expect!  The bar wants a bit of a heads up of how many people to expect.

    Went there last week. Not sure if it was because the food's actually great or just because I was famished, but they've got a lot of German fare and the Nurnburger sausages were amazing. The beer goes without saying.

    I'll probably bring Arkham+Dunwich+Bang. Somebody cover Avalon, my backpack is only so large!

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.
