Let's get together to mingle on Wednesday August 22nd from 6 p.m. onwards at the Sky Room. The Sky Room is kindly giving us some space on their amazing rooftop and they are located at 330 West 40th Street, between 8th and 9th Ave on the 33rd floor at the Fairfield Inn. Let's kick things off at 6 p.m. so we can all take advantage of their happy hour drink specials. Happy Hour ends at 8 p.m.

This meetup costs $5 which counts towards a free drink ticket. Please bring your ID with you and we hope to see you there!

    I got turned away by the bouncer because I was supposedly wearing "sweatpants." I was wearing light cotton pants - no gathering around the ankles - topped off by a long t-shirt, and argued that I was wearing cotton pants, not sweat pants, but the bouncer called the manager and I was put through an "inspection." By the way, as I was coming up in the elevator in my building, my neighbor took a photo of what I am wearing, so I can show you. While I was standing there, being humiliated by these two, plenty of young people half my age were being allowed up - wearing jeans and sneakers. Somehow, I was the only one who was picked out as "violating" their "dress code." Yes, I'm going to complain to management at the hotel.

    Good meetup with great people. There was no free drink ticket, though. Other than that, had a great time and look forward to the next event!

    The $5.00 cost was worth it but still I missed out on the free drink ticket bit. What was I supposed to make out on that note?

    So I guess I missed to RSVP by a couple of minutes, huh?

      Just a couple of days. :-). No shows make it possible to admit a couple of extra folks. Glad you showed!

      Same predicament here. If a slot opens up, I'm at [masked]

    I'm not trying to be difficult and i'm new to this but i'm curious as to what the $5 cost is as anyone can just go up to the sky room and have drinks, is the sky room closed off to the general public for this event?

      As I recall from last year's program at the Skyroom, the ONA section was cordoned off. As for the $5 cover, the drink ticket pretty much explains it.

    No, 8 should be fine. I'm sure people will be mingling for a while but happy hour ends at 8 though.

    Would after 8pm be too late to join?

  • Niketa Patel

    Yes, we did have a summer meetup at the Sky Room around the same time last year but we also had one at the Half King last June too. See you at the Sky Room on Wednesday!

    Is this the same location as last year's summer bash?
