Greetings and a happy, healthy New Year to all Kossacks, but especially to the NYC Metro Area crew. And I have good news: we'll be getting together in January as we hoped, with not one but two special guests! All is revealed below the orange croissant:

Here's one definition of onomastic. And here's a definition of "ono" that I always liked - it's yummy! But then there's our Onomastic, one of the most prolific and generous-spirited contributors to this site. And she's paying us a visit, along with one of her gracious hostesses, Yasuragi, Gulf Watcher extraordinaire and another indefatigable supporter of our community.

Both of them are high on my list of Kossacks I'd Like to Meet, and I know you want to meet them too, because you told me so last time we were together. Well, now you can:

Date: Sunday, January 20, 2013
Time: 12 noon - ???pm
Place: Spitzer's Corner
         101 Rivington Street (corner of Ludlow)
Meet us in the back room. This venue is wheelchair accessible.

Directions by subway: J,M,Z,F to Essex St./Delancey Street Station.

    If you're coming in from outside the city:

    From Grand Central: take the downtown 6 train (6 stops) to Bleecker Street Station, walk downstairs to Broadway-Lafayette station, change for the downtown F train (2 stops) to Delancey Street Station.

    From Penn Station: walk one block east to 34th St/Herald Square subway station, take F train (10 stops) to Delancey Street Station.

    From Port Authority Bus Terminal: take the downtown A,C, or E train to West 4th Street Station (4 stops), walk downstairs and take the downtown F train (3 stops) to Delancey Street.

    Any of these trips takes about 20-25 minutes.

   If you are driving, there's a very inexpensive municipal lot a block or two away, on Delancey Street. And on-street parking is free on Sundays.

As you see, we'll be hanging at our usual weekend spot. This will be our second weekender in a row, and I apologize to those of who you can't make weekend meetups. We've scheduled to accommodate our visitors and I promise to make it up to you in the (near!) future. H/t and special thanks to the delightful joanbrooker for helping to get the date set up,
and for those of you we'll be missing, Happy New Year, and we'll see each other soon!

Please rec, tip and RSVP to the poll, as appropriate. ALL ARE WELCOME!!!!
