New York Writers Meet-up: Aug. 9 at Amity Hall, New York City

Amity Hall

Amity Hall

We’re sticking with an East Coast theme as the next Bleacher Report Writers Meet-up is set for Amity Hall in New York City on Thursday, Aug. 9 at 6 p.m.

Our last two meet-ups were in Philadelphia and Boston, and both were big successes. We’re going for an Eastern Time hat trick before we head south for meet-ups in Dallas and Miami in the next few months.

Since Bleacher Report has an office in New York, this will be a great chance for you to meet and talk with some of the people who grind away behind the scenes, as well as a few of our video stars. I’m hoping to announce a couple of surprise guests in the weeks leading up to the meet-up. If you’re an approved writer, you’re invited.

Of course we’ll also have the usual array of Bleacher Report merchandise to give away, and we’re buying the food and drink. Here are a few comments about Amity Hall from recent Yelp reviewers:

“The beer list kicks butt … I spent a good 5 or so hours here at Amity Hall with a good 30 or so people and had not one complaint. I would absolutely recommend AH for a group gathering.”

“Great selection of beers!”

“Love this place :) good space to get together after work too to talk and have a couple of drinks, some burgers and fries.”

“Fun bar to actually talk to someone, eat a burger, watch a game, and sip a delicious IPA.”

But for all of that, the main event is the chance to meet and talk with other Bleacher Report writers, people doing the same thing you’re doing, and likely with the same goal of making a career out of it.

Amity Hall is at 80 West Third Street in Greenwich Village. The meet-up will be Thursday, Aug. 9, from 6 to 9 p.m. We ask that you RSVP so we’ll be sure to have enough food. You can do that in the comments or by dropping me an email.

    I’m there. See you soon!

  • KarloSilverioSevilla

    I live in the Philippines, but I’m sure someday I’ll make it to one of our meet-ups…Anyway, have a great time!

    Don’t you post video clips of the meet-ups on YouTube? To further spur our envy, er, desire (I mean) to go? ;-)

    • King_Kaufman

      That’s not a bad idea. Problem is we’re usually so busy having fun and talking to people that we forget to even take photos, never mind video. But we’ll work on being more organized.

      • KarloSilverioSevilla

        Alright, sir. Thanks for the response. Have fun, everyone!

  • Zackarylanders

    Any chance of a Chicago meet-up?

    • King_Kaufman

      Yes. We had a meetup in Chicago in November. We’ll get back there. This is a big country. There are a lot of cities!

  • Scott Carasik

    I’d love to have one here in Charleston in say November or December. Hotels here are CHEAP then.

    • King_Kaufman

      Noted. I assume you mean the one in SC, not WV, right?

      • Scott Carasik

        lol Of course the one in SC. It’s by the beach and is amazing. The one in WV… well, It’d make more sense to have the meet up in Pittsburgh if you were doing it in WV.
