Even while New York is always changing, still some places remain the same--thank heavens!
If you enjoy experiencing our rich cultural treasures, then this is the place for you!
Effective January 14, 2010, Great Places in Gotham Meetup will also have a $1 organizing fee paid to the organizer to help offset the costs of maintaining the Meetup's subscription. Meetups are not created or maintained for free; each organizer pays $72 for a six-month subscription. Asking each attendee to pay a small $1 fee at our events helps ease the financial burden on the organizer/planner.
Our event size is intentionally smaller for two reasons. First, it's so that all of us in attendance can interact and get to know each other. Second, lecture or film events at these venues usually have very limited seating, meaning I have to get there early and hold the number of seats we need, often against very aggressive people. That means we really need to have an accurate count for our rsvps, especially since our events almost always have a waiting list. If for whatever reason after you have rsvp'd yes, your plans change and you cannot attend, please change your rsvp as early as possible both so that those on the waiting list can get a seat at an event, and so I know when all attendees are assembled and can relax my stance against "aggressors".
Because we have lately had a number of no-shows, Great Places in Gotham will now have a policy, retroactive to February 22, 2009, where any member who incurs ONE no-show with no explanatory emails to me will be permanently removed from our membership rolls and not be allowed to rsvp for any more of our events. After all, would you keep a "friend" who stood you up and never apologized?
Meetup is about people meeting people at events of mutual interest--we've had some lovely afternoons and evenings of companionship at Great Places in Gotham, so let's all help to keep that momentum going.
