Looks like theres only two of us for xmas day... lame...

Well heres a little about me, I am a very tall suburbanite guy in my 20's. I live in Brooklyn but just recently moved here. I am an actor, but my day job is a restaurant manager at a top NYC eatery. I enjoy good conversation and fun! Hope something works out where I can meet some new great people!

What about we meet today or tomorrow end afternoon, for a coffee and we can meet first and discuss the details??

Count me in for Christmas Eve and I'd love to meet up also Christmas Day if you guys are still hanging out once I am done at the basketball.

Ray - can you suggest somewhere we could meet up given you live here and work at a top NYC eatery?

Oh i jsut realised that last post may not have worked since it had some personal info stuff in it...

So to say im very nervous about being all the way in NYC for xmas is an understatement...

Did anyone decide on a place to eat etc for xmas eve/day?

Hi All,

Looks like we have lots of interest! Well it seems as though most of us have no idea where to go really as we are not from NY so may i suggest something completley touristy and suggest perhaps Bubba Gump Shrimp and Co or Planet Hollywood in Timesquare just as a meeting point or somewhere where we can have dinner and then we can either find somewhere else to have some dinner or eat dinner there and head out for some drinks after. I am suggesting this for Friday at around 7 or 7.30.

any suggestions?

for those of you who can't make Friday night i will do my best to include you on something for Christmas day :)

Hello everybody!

Gina, sounds perfect!

I know an italian restaurant really good, and not so expensive because the food is served in generous portions for sharing.

It's Carmine's - 200 West 44th Street (really near to Times Square)
You can find them online.

I don't mind doing the reservations - if we all agree of course - I just need to know how many are we :)

You can find me on facebook under marinapcruz

(lets see if that went through :)

Actually that is a great suggestion! I have been to Carmine's and they have great food.

So if we can just confirm numbers now and then we can go ahead and make a booking...who is keen to meet at Carmines on Friday night at 7.30?

Sorry i couldn't find you on FB :( i am under gina binetti...purple dress with long blonde hair!
