Anet NYC Meet

Mon Jul 12, 2004 1:26 pm

Well I figure I will start this thread off, myself, AA61HVY, and JCS17, took a trip to New York City this weekend. The intent was to have a big Anet meet but that didn't workout in the long run but we still made the best of it. We went to Bars strip clubs and JFK. I have never been to NYC before so I was glad to be with people who had been. I met Ryan (AA61Hvy) on Friday July 9th after I got in from my flight from BUF-JFK and him and I went out that night and got RYE TARTED in Time Square, it was a wicked night. The next day my self and Ryan met up with Josh (JCS17) and went down to Times square and got more then tuned and then hit the strip club.....but I will let Josh tell that one. On Sunday it was my last day in NYC, I had to come back up to Canada  Sad for work so JCS, AA and I all went to JFK for some spotting. It was an interesting day we ended up taking a taxi that got lost and then charged us $20 bucks for what we found out was just around the block ride. However we did manage to see some nice metal at JFK. I know I am being very vague on this but its late and I am tired, how ever we have lots of pics to show and once AA and JCS are home on Tuesday they will be posted. But this was a great weekend that was so worth it!!! We will do a more indepth report in this thread once everyone is back home. So until then!!!

Guys, stop bashing the Americans.. we don't all want to get banned!

I'm sure there are lots of successful USA meets, it's just that AA61hvy talked so big about his fantastic NYC Superpowers thing which was cancelled in the end, as we know.

Much ado about the TB-10 which I didn't know of either, so I decided to let Google handle it:
http://images.google.com/images?q=TB-10&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi (link won't work)

Click on the first result, one rather entertaining website!  Laugh out loud

I can understand him saying that, looks like the TB-10 is a little weiner aircraft. As there's lots of freak aircraft in Europe/Asia, he could've been expecting one of those. So I think you logic is false, thinking they were dumb because they didn't know what a little weiner single-engined aircraft (there are 100's of different single-engined aircraft) was, pffft.

You know what kills me? The fact the Brits need to keep a fabricated score against the Americans. I mean is the inferiority complex that great that you need to go that route? Go have a spot of tea, a pint of bitter, and have a Soccer Riot. In the meantime, leave the Scoreboard stats to us, seeing as you will never catch up.

Well, at least you few guys actually made it to JFK, site of the would-be meeting. I'd gladly go sometime, provided there IS a meeting. You can't bash the Brits too much for lambasting something that was hyped awhile back, then fizzled. In the future, when planning something like this, have someone agree to organize it in the beginning. This could have been a successful, ACTUAL a.net meeting if someone had taken charge on organizational details. Instead, the only details we heard about in the original thread was how many shots per member were to be downed in the myriad bars and strip clubs to be hit in the day prior to the meeting at JFK. Alcoholic proficiency and laviciousness toward NYC's topless dancers are not the ingredients for making a successful a.net meeting although undeniably they make for a great time. Decide where your priorities lie if you ever plan to do an NYC area meeting again.

Hey Brits, go ahead and blow me, you guys wanked off looking at planes, while we were social and got drunk. The chicks at our meeting were actually normal woman and hot, not like these MAN "chicks"

Thank God I'm not British.

Hey Brits/Euros, why don't you look closely at words printed the napkin I'm holding in the second picture.

Anyway, the weekend was awesome and it was cool to hang out in NYC with you guys. I was just disappointed that Ryan never got carded.

Now for the much-talked about strip club story:

After paying our huge bar tab and hitting up Ray's; Ryan, Jordan, and I decide to go to a strip club. The nearest one is Flashdancers, I've been there before for a bachelor party and it wasn't too bad. The women were pretty good and the atmosphere was decent. So we get there, pay our excessive $20 cover and are directed by the bouncer to the "VIP Area." Whatever, I guess the way we were dressed (or they were dressed) gave them the impression that we were big spenders. We've all had a lot to drink, and I'm pretty sure Ryan and Jordan would agree that we're all drunk off our asses that point. However, the fastest way to get kicked out of a strip club is not to order drinks. So we go ahead and order three beers and are entertained for the next hour or so. Our cocktail waitress never comes by and asks us if we want anything else. In fact, I have to flag her down to get the check. She brings the check, I break out my credit card and she informs me that there is a $30 minimum, and our three beers ONLY cost $27. I'm okay with that though, its a strip club, I'll deal with it.

The only thing that bothered me about it was that I'm pretty sure she was making the whole thing about the minimum tab up to make us buy something else. I wasn't pissed at this point, and her tip was still going to be okay. So, I look through the drink menu--prices NOT included, and order a shot of Tequila thinking it couldn't be more than $9. The tequila comes out, and its basically half a shot of Tequila that even a homeless person wouldn't touch. I get my updated tab...$43. Sixteen dollars for half a shot of shitty Tequila. Now, I'm not happy. I draw a line through the space where a tip should be left. As the cocktail waitress is picking up the bill she does a double-take and says to me, "That space is where the tip should be left." "Yeah, I know," was my response. "So you're not tipping me anything?" "Nope." "But, I work on tips." "I know that, but you completely ripped me off on that shot and you didn't exactly provide great service." She said, "I don't make the prices though, you should take that up with management." "Yeah right. Maybe you could discuss the issue with management for me because it certainly doesn't bother you that I'm getting ripped off here." At this point she took my check and stormed off. At this point, I knew that the bouncers would be by any second to kick our asses out. So we saved them the trouble and just left.

The next morning, I go and check my balance of my checking account, and $100 magically had disappeared from my debit card account from the last time I checked it the night before. I remember spending around $120 at Tonic and $43 at Flashdancers along with a few miscellaneous minor charges (Ray's Pizza and cigs). My best guess is that the miserable c*nt cocktail waitress had gone back and given herself a $100 tip from my debit card. Well, theres no doubt I'm going to be contesting that charge with my bank. All in all, it was pretty funny and I don't think its a huge deal (even though I could totally go after her and Flashdancer for credit card fraud) just as long as I get my money back.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the city. It was an EXCELLENT time for it, with awesome weather!

I only heard from Ryan at the last minute. And we were ready to join up. But at the last minute, only b/c I really had no idea what was going on, I bailed and enjoyed the weekend out on Long Island.


Besides, my famous shirt was in the wash.

well, there is always next time.

Gents,

What is that Tonic place like ?? My mate and I tried to get in there to watch the England vs Portugal game in Euro 2004, but is was packed out and they wouldn't let anymore people in so we ended up at Hurley's watching the 1st half in the street as that too was full, until the kind manager sneaked us into the upstairs bar for free at half time (it was a $20 cover !!).

Leezy,

Tonic is a 'nice' bar. Its not really a lounge, nor is it really a bar. There are two floors, well actually three, each with its own bar and giant flat screen televisions along with live music (I forget whether there was a dance floor on the first floor--both nights I went, we were on the second floor.). It seemed to promote itself as trendy NYC hot spot, but in reality what it was a trendy tourist bar, but a very good one at that. It had a good atmosphere. Funny you mention soccer, considering that one night when we were at Tonic, there were about 25 people watching the Mexico-Argentina Copa America match and doing what soccer fan does best, annoying others. (and I never got smacked with a cover at Tonic)

I also found out, after hanging with Ryan this weekend, he's a fat ass stuck in a weightlifters body. Dude eats, and when he's not eating he's extolling the virtues of Ray's Pizza. Its not gonna be good for him whenever he decides to take the lazy way out (as I did for a while) and not exercise.
