It's been a while since I organized one of these. So I am exploring the possibility of doing one (probably mid-October). Hinges on interest.

Location - not determined.
Date - Not determined (as stated, probably mid October on a Saturday)

Anyone interested, please suggest date and place. Open to suggestions.

Thanks,
Mike

EDIT - 1/24/2010

Decided to go ahead and schedule something (as per my post below).

I'll say my old stand-by: Ruby Tuesday's at the Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, NJ. It's located at the intersection of State Routes 4 and 17 about 10 miles or so from the GWB.

This will be a "Buy your own lunch" event.

Date - Let's say Saturday, March 20th. That gives us just under 2 months to clear the day.

Time: 11:30am outside the restaurant (inside the mall). Go in at noon.

How does that sound?

    Hey Mike,

    Count me in. Seems like I only missed one NY/NJ area lunch since I was privileged enough to be part of the first one.

    Keep in posted.

      Hi Mike --

      If the group is small, say ten or less, I can host a meet-up at my house. I have a fairly good-sized party room (complete w/ bar, pool table, and dart board--sorry no foosball for Mike Filsaime).

      I live in Melville, near NSP, rt 110, and LIE.

      If you want to do it on a weekend, Nov. 14 or Dec. 12 works for me.

    I've been talking to a few Long Island Warriors and we're
    looking to get together sometime soon for a local meet up.

    Nothing big just a local meet up.

    A big lunch would be great to meet as many people as possible
    in the area but that might take more planning.

    I'lll update the thread as some of us get closer to a meet up date.

    It will be after New Years for sure though.

    Ok, I see this thread is still active - nice.

    So it's time to see how many of the people who posted subscribed to this thread. If you did, come in and let's schedule something for March. By them weather should start breaking a bit and it's far enough in the future to actually PLAN this.

    Let's see a show of hands... consensus on a location:

      Now that's thinking like a competitor...not as a potential partner.

      All kidding aside, you can talk marketing all day and not talk about your niche. These lunches are meant to meet, chat, talk about what works for you, find a partner...whatever you want.

      I credit these lunches for MUCH of my on line success.

      Ok, bull by the horns.

      I'll say my old stand-by: Ruby Tuesday's at the Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, NJ. It's located at the intersection of State Routes 4 and 17 about 10 miles or so from the GWB.

      This will be a "Buy your own lunch" event.

      Date - Let's say Saturday, March 20th. That gives us just under 2 months to clear the day.

      Time: 11:30am outside the restaurant (inside the mall). Go in at noon.

      How does that sound?

        Sure...there are two different IM meetups in nyc. Pretty sure they are both open to anyone (you have to join on meetup.com) and you don't have to live in ny. You just have to get there

        I've been to this one a few times: NY Internet Marketing Group

        Basically there is a presentation and networking time. The presentations were pretty good, especially considering that the presenters were doing it for free. It's held monthly in a private conference room on 23rd st & 6th ave, and there is a $10 cover that pays for the room and pizza. The atmosphere was pretty friendly, and there was a good mix of people with different levels of experience. I'll definitely go again when they are covering a topic I'm interested in.

        Here's the other one: Internet Marketers of NY

        I haven't been to this one yet, but I'm definitely interested. I RSVP'd for the next one on March 9th. Looks like a group of people who casually meet at the Molly Wee Pub and talk about IM. It seems similar to the lunch in this thread.

        Anyway...hope that helps. Eric (and anyone else), pm me if you end up going to one of the meetups and I'll try to find you.

        Looking forward to the NJ lunch! Can't remember the last time I've been to Ruby Tuesday...

      A little of both actually. There's nothing structured. It's simply a bunch of people having lunch chatting about marketing, etc.

      It could also be a good opportunity to partner up with someone. I partnered with another marketer as a result of the first lunch and we worked together for 2 years and made some good money.

      Bring an open mind.

    Hope you can make it Jason!

    I also sent the invite to Ron Douglas and Mike Filsaime. They were at the original few, so hopefully they can make this one.

    And I invited Fabio Marciano, who is the marketer I partnered with for a few years and did well with.

    This could be fun

    Ok, we're just about 2 weeks away from the lunch.

    Although Ruby Tuesdays does not require a reservation, I do like to give them heads up if we plan on having a good crowd so they can reserve a section for us.

    So, in an effort to get a good head count, please verify if you are a definite YES. You can post here in the thread or send me a PM.

    I am a YES!

      Would really like to make it this weekend, but I'm not 100% I can yet. Birthday party and Scout stuff this weekend...

    @mllnsgrl - well I think we should make this a monthly or bi-monthly event. Maybe even get somewhere where we can do a presentation, have internet access etc - it would be good to get the collective input from everybody...somebody mentioned there are some in NYC - maybe we can crash those!!!

        We did one of these at a hotel in NJ once. The restaurant had a private room and we had over 50 people. And it was only $15 a head.

        Problem is, you need enough people to make that work.

        We can always reserve space at a hotel meeting room, but then who gets to pay for that?

        Such are the logistics for these lunches.

        In any case, I enjoyed myself Saturday and look forward to the next one.

          mike,
          I am with you 101% - it is hard to find places to meet where the
          upfront fee(s) are not painful! had a time finding meeting places
          for some projects and found out that the PJ Whelihans near me
          will let me have a side room for $65 (which includes coffee/tea and
          some 'finger' food) with the understanding that people will buy
          lunch. they also let me plug my VAIO into the big screen tv's HDMI
          and run powerpoints!

          maybe some of the locations 'up' in NJ & NY will do the same?

          I am willing to hit the phone and see what can be arranged....BUT
          this is your 'deal', so let me know if I can jump in and help out here?

      Simon.. I would definitley meet up at those NYC Conferences. Will have to check it out on the web this week. That sounds interesting.

      Mike.. Also, in that mall is American Joe's which I used to go to all the time. The front room is a large bar with some tables - at least you could walk around and talk. There's not much mall noise there, but there is a tv going I think.

      Sometimes Libraries have back area rooms also.

      I hope you all don't meet for a couple weeks now, because I"m recovering from a broken ankle and can't drive yet :0
