This would have been cool...another time, another place. But now I'm in upper Westchester, and work is insane, so I'll have to pass.

I figured we could get together around 7 or 8, hang out, have some dinner, some drinks (at the same place), that's a good two or three hours right there. We could then mosey on up to Times Square and see if there's a line or whatever (I remember the TOWER in Los Angeles used to have a line to get in) and we can take it from there.

Once again, it's just an idea.

I e-mailed the PR department for Virgin Megastore, asking them if there would be a midnight sale of the new album at their Times Square store. Got this response...

We do sell new releases at midnight, the 23rd is going to be a huge release day! I hope you and the other fans have a good time at the Times Square store next week! If you have someone on the West Coast you can let them know to come to the San Francisco Megastore. There will be a tribute band and the vendor will be supplying special giveaways.

I'm in. I'll be bringing my old college roomie, giant U2 fan. Check out his U2 photos:

Rafiennes, let's put this in cement. You wanna provide the details?

OK - so here's the deal...
If you're interested in doing this, if you think this is something you wanna have happen, then private message me and I'll put together a list of who is coming to this thing.

NYC HTDAAB Get-together

Hi there,

I'm interested in a possible NYC U2 gathering late Monday night. I've been calling around to the big music stores, and it doesn't sound like any of them are doing anything special. I'm probably going to go to Tower in Lincoln Center or Virgin in Times Square at midnight, and I'm looking for some other fans to celebrate with.

B.

Go ahead and PM me telling me you're in.
I'm trying to get a tally of how many people will be there so I can get us a table for dinner and drinks pre-U2 buying.

I'm not a premium member, so can you let me know what's going on? I'd like to come, but I've got to work until 9pm.

thanks

Here’s the basic idea. We meet at The Comfort Diner on 23rd & 5th. It’s not a diner in the sense of Mel’s Diner. Great food, better prices, and yes, you can drink there. I figured we could meet there around 8 pm, have some eats, conversation, talk U2and be total U2 geeks.

Then, when we finish, we could walk up to Times Square and see what the deal is and buy the album at Midnight!

I’ve gotta be up at 6am the next morning so I don’t wanna hear anyone complaining about how they gotta get up early (unless it’s like 5 am…that’s ridiculous early!)

But if people are interested, email me, rafiennes@yahoo.com or PM me. The more the better.

So let’s make this happen New Yorkers (& New Jerseyians)

1, 2, 3, 14…go!
