Jackass  :lol although I was on a work trip in Europe during the last two episodes of season 4 and I had to go the illegal route to watch them because I was going nuts on the inside not being able to watch them live.

I ran into the same problem a couple of years ago when I was in Disney. The room didn't have HBO so I downloaded the torrent later that evening.  :lol

To quote "The Matrix"  ... you need to unplug  ;D  Hey I'm open for about anything on concert day, been talking to Yeshaberto about a possible tour thing.  But hey, lets throw some ideas out...I'm game!

Y'all keep me posted. Since I'll be spending the preceding days scrambling all over CT, I've left Fri and Sat in NYC wide open.

There's a Friday's right near there. I know it's not the best option for food but it's good enough to get some drinks and appetizers. If that's something the majority would be open to then I could call ahead and let them know how many people would be coming.

I plan on probably heading into the city late morning and getting brunch/drinks somewhere, and then just posting up at a bar somewhere near the venue.
Photobucket sucks.

Exactly my plan. My friend and I will probably hit Katz's Deli for some pastrami and then hang around the area surrounding RCMH.

I wouldn't. The last time I saw DT in NYC was 2013 during the NCAA march madness tournament. Every place was packed so we went to Fridays. It was HORRIBLE at best.
Yup. Tick is dead on.  She's not your type.  Move on.   Tick is Obi Wan Kenobi

Personally, I've gone to that Fridays once before and wouldn't go back, it's expensive because of location, but it's still the same Friday's food that is like 40% cheaper anywhere else.  Also, I'm kind of turned off from Fridays (a bunch in NJ so maybe not effecting the NY franchises) since they got caught swapping the top shelf liquor with bottom shelf at least in NJ so they lost my trust in buying drinks from them.

But I'm up for whatever you guys want to do since a lot of people are traveling from distances that I think it's best for those to have the strongest input and get to experience NYC on some level.

There are plenty of places in the area. I'll see what else is there and list a bunch of them later. There's a Five Guys there, too. However, I don't think they serve alcohol and that's a must.   :lol

So long as people don't mind walking (stumbling?) a few blocks, Hell's Kitchen is three blocks straight west from RCMH, and will have better food/drink options (at better prices, with fewer tourists) than anything right near the venue.

Three blocks west is closer to my hotel so works for me (staying on 57th and 9th).  Honestly, I am game for anything, whatever works for everyone.

I'm probably going to the Lower East Side to hit my regular brunch spot http://www.foolsgoldnyc.com/

Game to meet up anywhere near the venue later in the day. Going to see if anyone on my beer forum has any bar recommendations.

This place is one of the better beer bars in the area.  I've been there once before. They have 48 taps and over 40 bottled beers. If this is good for everyone, let me know. If there is going to be a lot of us, then I'll call ahead and make reservations.

 :tup 

I'll message those who expressed interest in meeting up and see how many want to come. At least this way I can call the place and give them a basic idea of how many people are coming.

I was going to suggest Brickyard (one block further south), but I'm not going to second-guess distinguished booze-hounds such as yourselves.

Valhalla has good bar food too -- fried pickles and such.

LOL. I don't believe in waiting for food, especially in NYC.  If there's a wait someplace I just walk down the block to another.  The idea of waiting in line to eat something "trendy" is just anathema to me.

Not if it's just Trendy, but good food you can't find anywhere else can be worth the wait.

I am working with a couple of the people from the fan clubs regarding the meetup. We're going to create an events invite for this on Facebook. If you don't have Facebook, let me know, and I'll see make sure everyone knows you're coming.

I won't be going to this show, but FWIW, we met up with a bunch of people from Facebook prior to the recent Iron Maiden show at MSG.  We all went to Stout on 33rd, just up the street from MSG.  I thought it was pretty decent, YMMV.

Never mind, for some reason, I thought this was at MSG, not RCMH.

Stout is pretty good, even if not applicable...

I'll have to check Stout out sometime. Last time I needed a beer not far from MSG I went to a new-ish place called Haymarket that had a damn good taplist.

We got there during college football season sometimes...wife is a Texas fan, and Stout is the home-base for the UT alums on game day.

Stout was f*cking PACKED the night of the Maiden show.  It also helped that they were playing Live After Death on all the TV screens.
