The OFFICIAL WSO NYC MeetUp Thread

So I'm thinking of planning a happy hour event for everyone (as I had posted before) to come to and attend but I just wanted to sort through a few things first.

A- Going to wait until after the December 4th CFA Level 1 date in case anyone (me, me and me) is taking it
B-December or January? Some going down to Energy Rodeo end of Jan and I was thinking we could do a mid December Happy Hour one day
C- Happy hour will be first and then possibly a group dinner -- issue with doing a group dinner in NYC is that if you get 12+ restaurants turn to assholes and rape you with 'private dining' fees and charges, nevermind liability if 5 people dont show up.
D- Weekday or Weekend
E- Location: Galway Hooker @ 36th and 5th/Madison for good uptown/midtown divide...

Thoughts/opinions/inputs?

Sounds like a good time - I probably won't be able to make it to NYC, but great call on the Galway Hooker for a location. Really enjoy that bar - it's a favorite whenever I'm in the city.

pass me a date and i will see if i can make it

Nov 16, 2010

yeah i might be down for this as well.

Nov 16, 2010

I'd be down if I'm in town.

Yes, that rhyme was on purpose. I'm learning to become a rapper b/c I thinking of pulling a George Costanza and doing the complete opposite of everything I think of.

Take the other side of my trades over the last two months and you'd be up quite handsomely. Right call, wrong time! I'm a great vehicle to offset capital gains, if anyone is interested. Give me some money and I'll lose it for you!

don't dispair...we've all been there. it's all learning experience, no way to avoid this. it's whether or not you can learn from it that will determine if you will be still trading one year from now....

Nov 16, 2010
