Default NYC happy hour

In reading Dave's post about a meet up in May and seeing all the positive feed back and being remind of all the froggers right here in the city, I thought I'd suggest a happy hour right in Manhattan either next week or the week after. Grab a few beers, meet a new face, talk frogs, trade a plant clipping, etc...

Just drop a post here to gauge interest and post what days and times are good for you

I'm free usually every day but Wednesdays/Thursdays. My office is at 54th and 8th, but really can't stand midtown past that. I do understand that it would probably be the most convenient place for everyone to meet, so name a spot!

No worries Midtown makes me want to jump in front of a bus! I was thinking more like the village area which is central even for you brooklyn folks

Seems like our vibe.
Rainforest, beer and pool tables.
Good reviews and happy hour specials.

True we never did set a date and Riko is already trying to avoid it!

Never been to otto's or tropical 128, I was originally think a standard bar would do but you guys are really getting into the theme.

I should say that I have a pretty strict happy hour rule that states that if it's before 8 then it should be at least half price, otherwise whats the point of happy hour...

I think its 2-3$ drafts. Tropical seems to have good deals and we can play pool instead of talking about creeping ficus and its alternative uses.
Can we pick a day?

Everyone confirmed for January 13th?

If anyone is interested, I can bring:

Fresh cacao pods-$20

Sealed, dried half pods for the same-$20.

Bad older phone photo attached of the dried pods. Perfect tadpole distribution sites.

Yes I believe we are good for the 13th.

Would there be any interest in a plant clipping swap?

I can spare a frog free rooted cutting of true Monstera dubia if anyone has some Marcgravia sp. or other semi-rarities...

Also have standard vivarium cuttings if any newbies are coming and need some things to get going...

Please correct me if I'm wrong:

Monday, 2/13/12 @ 6:00PM

128 Tropical Inc.
Phone: 212-925-8219
128 Elizabeth St
New York, New York 10013

Map: 128 Elizabeth St New York, New York 10013 - Google Maps

Mordoria: If the micron filters you're asking about are whitish, felt-like, round and fit inside a standard Mason Jar cover, I have some. I just can't remember why I bought them. (Another senior momment.)

Julio (and anyone else): I'm running low on bugs and don't expect to make it until Hamburg on 2/25. Please PM me (or post here) with any availability and cost.

All: Is anyone making reservations, or aren't they necessary?

Regards,
Bob

Regards,
Bob

I'm pretty sure you've got it. I plan on being there at 7:30.

Reservations definitely not required for Tropical!

Cool Bob! Thats it exactly. Id love if you could spare a few. Anything you'll be needing?

I have a bag of stuff Ill be bringing. I need to clear out some space for stuff Im not into. Id love to trade for more crap that ill actually use. I have some water pumps, excelcior, brewers yeast, film cans, and other stuff. Id love some deli cups w tops. I have a bunch of tads developing and could use a few.

I also have a bunch of clippings ill bring. If anyone wants, they should BYOziploc. I have some cool things. I also have some terrestrial ferns that are in 4" pots. They are about 8" tall. Cool red stems and green foliage. They have outgrown my "greenhouse" and would like them to go. Ill only bring them if someone is interested.

mordoria: Monday's weather looks OK, so I'll be coming in. I haven't located the micron filter pads yet, but I'll keep looking (it's a big basement). I'll trade for bugs or a glass of Merlot.

johnachilli: PM sent.

B-NICE: PM sent.

All: I need to cut back some Ficus pumila var. minima. Free to anyone who wants it. Just PM me...

Regards,
Bob

It looks like we will have a good turn out on Monday. For those of you that can't make it I don't see why we couldn't do it again.

If anyone is new or might not know anyone short me a pm and we can exchange cell numbers in case you need to get in contact with someone.

see you all then

Does anyone have a bean beetle culture starter? I had one a while ago and my frogs hated it. They are much bigger now and might take to them better. I know my huge Powder will. Shes the only one who would clean out an orange iso culture and still beg.
