I'm up for either location. However, if you need a place to sit in the LES, there's a public park across from Pacific. Other than that, it's kinda hard finding a place to sit and relax that isn't a restaurant.
What about the Whole Foods? People seem to just gather there for no apparent reason, not sure if the store actually cares.
I may come I might not...this is only my opinion...One of the local member here long time back wanted to do same thing what you are planning to do but didn't worked out...
It didn't work out because that person wanted to (among other things..) hold the meeting in Astoria, which was unideal for just about everyone. Most people had suggested the LES as a better spot during that time.
