For those of us heading to the Halloween Parade on Friday, it's crunch time! When and where is a good place to meet?
The line-up for the parade is 6th Avenue south of Spring Street and north of Canal between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. We can only enter the line-up on 6th Ave. from the East and South between Canal and Spring.
I'm thinking we should meet up somewhere nearby, around 4 or 5 PM. The only issue is to find a good spot that works for everyone while still giving us time to walk through the village and check out the crowds on the way to line up.
Is anyone coming from work or anything like that, and therefore have non-negotiable space/time limits to consider? The beauty of having no plan is we're still pretty damn adaptable at this point, don't be shy.
Also, I shall have my cellphone with me. If you want to be able to get in touch that way, or at least receive the "get your ass to ___!" text messages I shall undoubtedly be sending around like mad, please shoot me an email or private LJ message and let me know.
There are also a few interesting events going on after the parade.
The Promised Land, a 24-hour-long travelling art party type thing. My girlfriend and I plan to check this out because we're dorks like that.
If you're not into that, Sidepocket has the following suggestions:
Webster Hall Party - right near the parade ending, but pricey and likely crowded as hell.
NYC Resistor Halloween Party - In downtown Brooklyn, but only $10 cover and it's run by our fellow hackers.
