plf515 and avadoria begin the evening with some genteel chat and some Delirium Tremens (that's beer!)
...while belinda ridgewood begins with a Guiness.
It's the Supreme Court, Stupid enjoys an exotic brew in an impressive glass.
we met some newcomers to the NYC meetup scene, like Jawina...
...and Dumas EagerSeton (left), and welcomed back some long-lost friends, like PsiFighter37...
...and Laura Clawson.
Ian Reifowitz kindly autographed my copy of his book (not to be confused with that other horrible book with the same title)!
..and then did some partying with belinda ridgewood.
we met some non-Kossacks - this is Ian's friend, Jeff
and Jeff's dad, Bob - a major fan of the site, even though he's not registered.
Arjun Jaikumar (formerly brownsox, right) and casperr (center) converse with erics (left), a visiting SF Kossack, and a delightful surprise guest!
Glinda (right) is back, and mattc129 (right) looks glad that she's there.
joshinnyc (formerly proudprogressiveca - he gets around!) and mattc129. If matt looks familiar, you might be confusing him with his brother, who attended our previous meetup.
Arjun and ITSCS listen attentively to Miss Laura...
as the evening wore on, things got livelier:
avadoria and casperr have MBNYC on his best behavior
avadoria, kathny and Cherry the Tart share a laugh
kathny and Jawina go dancing cheek to cheek (well, if you don't count that table between them),...
...and Jawina, ask, and plf515 go wild!
Thanks to ask's creative lighting, a couple of us became women of mystery: here's buffie...
and the other one was me!
a fine time was had by all...
and next time, we expect to see you
