Last night was fun! It was the very first NYC Dkos Meetup (contrary to whatever Armando wants to try and claim) and we all met at Yaffa Tea House in TriBeCa. To be honest, I thought it would be me and maybe three Kossaks so it was pretty nice to get a turnout somewhere between 20 and 25 people.

JBilger (Joe--who gets extra props for once helping to build the cafe and let Yaffa know we'd be coming. Thanks again Joe) asked me why I wanted to have a meetup, and I told him in no uncertain terms, "I wanted to get more people than Seattle did at their meetup." I think it's safe to say that we've gotten past that first hurdle. What's next is anyone's guess, but we ARE going to continue to meet. This was too much fun not to. Take the poll below on location location location for the next one.

This is JBildi (those are torture images he's holding), Garibaldi and Ask: wonderful fellas one and all.

This is Liza and DefJef. Liza is a blogging force to be reckoned with. Keep on eye on this girl, she's got all sorts of great ideas cooking and is organizing a blogger meetup for folks of color in April. DefJef is a very interesting dude. Ask him about his sailing days. Oh the tales he can tell!

This is my friend KK and a poster here, who wishes to remain an international woman of mystery. KK is the one that Kos barked at for not knowing what a blog is. Well, he really didn't bark, but it's fun to say he did. Actually there were other posters there who left early and talked about what an incredibly nice first impressision Kos made when they met him at The Tank during the RNC. That and that he looked like he's about 14 years old.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
