Finally, here is the better-late-than-never photo diary from Thursday night’s magnificent NYC Kossacks Meetup at the New York Milkshake Company.

Thanks to the fantastic arrangements made by mindoca and the very accommodating manager at the shake place, we had a group of tables set aside for us by the time kath25 and srkp23 arrived.

We met, we drank (milkshakes, malteds, beer, wine, cosmos, bourbon), we ate (hot dogs, burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches), we talked (a LOT), we blogged.

You might have missed the liveblog that mconvente posted at the meetup. He found a free wifi connection and two computers were set up for everyone to add comments.

mconvente, mentioned above, came with his twin brother. They brought a terrific energy to the party, and we hope they’ll be at another meetup the next time they’re on school break. mconvente is the one on the right, but really, who would know the difference?

Here’s jimdotz and blue waters run deep. In the background are Proud Progressive in CA with his girlfriend, and next to them, Eddie C.

madcow made it, even though it wasn’t a Wednesday night. Here she is with Erin (screen name??).

It was great to see MissLaura again. Now that she’s nearer to NY, I’m hoping she’ll become a regular at NYC meetups. Here she is with javelina.

We were THRILLED to see Tom Ball for the first time in almost two years!  Here he is (right) with clammyc.

Thanks again, mindoca!

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.
