Hey New Yorkers!

MLP: Pinkie Oh Hai!
sindrian and I will be all up in your city next month, for the Open Hardware Summit on September 15 and Maker Faire the 17th and 18th.


Can we stay with you?

*applies best charming look*

We are unobtrusive houseguests and can bring our own airbed. I'm reluctant to offer sindrian's l337 cooking sk1llz only because he may be tired from full days of Maker-Faire-ing, but if he's not tired, he may cook for you.

EDIT: crewgrrl has scooped us up!

Also, there appears to be nothing maker-oriented going on on the 16th, so that may work as a dinner get-together for any New Yorkers who want to see us while we're there. I have heard marvelous things about Risotteria, and of course I am eager for other suggestions of places that can feed me safely! (Anaphylactic food allergies = soy protein and shellfish, so please restaurants whose cuisine doesn't revolve around those.)

*crosses fingers*

Gah. I'd be happy to see you both, but I'll be gone that weekend for Intervention in DC.

But oh well. I'll be sure to say hi at Pi-con, anyway.

Is it sad that I read Maker Faire and my first thought was of a Shai Hulud festival?

Gah, I'd love to finally meet you in person, but I can't make a Friday night dinner for obvious reasons. Ah well, next time you're in New York!

Yep! It's possible we'll be available another evening, but I'm not sure - that's the only day we know we aren't busy. :(
10th-Aug-2011 03:21 am (UTC) - squee!

I've been soooooo wanting to try the risotteria! (My normal-eating sweetie says it's incredibly tasty.) I don't know any other GF places off hand, (am new to this GF thing, so far am very happy with it & my energy sucks so much less), but would love to join you guys for that!!

Oh wait, no, I do know of another -- I recall hearing good things about Babycakes, http://www.babycakesnyc.com/ -- but from what I can tell, they have gluten containing things on the menu as well, so if you're likely to have a problem with particle contamination, maybe it's not a place for you.

Hmm... does soy protein & shellfish allergies mean you need to avoid sushi places as well? (pure curiosity) I've been considering sushi a safe food (as long as I don't have soy sauce & the waitresses promise me that the crunchy bits are made from rice) for me as I transition to a GF diet. And possibly I've been eating lots of sushi of late. So sad. :D

Yep - just too many risks at sushi places for me! On the plus side, I've never liked sushi.

Your entry title made me do a double-take since I remember the entry on why you don't like New York.
