Good call, Richard! I found out, and they actually do already have some Go boards. Randy, if you're interested in going ahead with the idea, you could email them at [address removed]. I'm pretty sure they'd be happy to have us, and it really is a very cool place. If there's anything I can do to help, let me know.

Eli,

 I think that Fat Cat is an excellent idea.  It would be great if they got boards but we've been a resourceful bunch when we've gone to Central Park, for instance and could bring our own if they'd permit it. BTW, their website does include go under their list of games.

Cheers,
Richard

What about meeting at a park? There are plenty of tables at Bryant Park, for example. It's probably not the best solution for winter, but should be good for now. This is what chess people do, so why not Go people as well?

Also, might be worth talking to a games bar/lounge. Fat Cat, at West 4th street and 7th Ave has a ton of space and games (Chess, Pool, Ping Pong, Scrabble, among others), a great atmosphere, occasional live Jazz (pretty quiet during the afternoon), and no charge to enter during the afternoon. They usually charge $1 a person to use their chess sets for an unlimited time. Maybe we could talk to them and see if they'd be interested in getting Go boards, or letting us bring ours there? I'm sure they'd be interested in having more people in there during the normally quiet afternoon, and paying $1 per person to play for as long as we want is pretty cheap.

Thoughts?

Cheers,
Eli


Hey guys,
 
So, I've been on vacation this week and pondering how our group will be handling the lack of venue for the next few months while the office is being torn up. (Beer and powertools dismantling-fest at my office next week, woo)
 
So, a few things we can do.
1) We could meet at someone's place, if it's a small enough group, (e.g. limit to 10-15 RSVPs, and someone volunteers their space)
2) We could invade one of the many largish cafe/eateries in midtown. There's lots of places that were designed to handle lunch crowds for huge office towers that are almost empty during the weekends. They could easily fit our group. We just have to find and scout out a space.
3) How'd that space in Brooklyn work out?
 
After that, I can lug 2 boards with me to any location, and if everyone else chips in to carry equipment we'd be set.
 
Looking for ideas, so everyone please speak up!
 
Cheers,
Randy
