can't do that my husbands competing with his dog that day and I can't even make the 4th because of a "have to go to" party

If you ever do another NJ Saturday tour let me know I can take 3 comfortably Absolutely Fish and Pet Shanty are realllly nice, but in different directions.

acitydweller The logistics would depend on where people were coming from. For example, for those in queens, brooklyn or upstate, people could meet locally first, then travel directly to either LES or to the first stop in NJ, which ever makes sense.

The LES meeting point largely would be for manhattanites who need need a ride. Those coming from Queens/Brooklyn naturally would pass through the manhattan en route to Jersey anyway.

But you are right about needing more coordination as people will be relying one another. I have already visited three of the shops and can confidently say there's plenty to see there. Its definitely different from our usual haunts.

I have a relative who owns a restaurant in hackensack (near one of the aquariums slated on the venue) so an indoor swap location is not a problem.

Monster Fish So, we would meet up in the LES, carpool and take a ride to NJ/upstate NY and visit some shops, then drive back to NY, then go our separate ways? Sounds fun but it would take a lot of coordination.

This one guy/alien Bra'tac is always using "we'll cross that bridge when we come to it" because Jack O'neill said it at one point, but he always uses in incorrectly. And then Teal'c at one point says: "undomesticated equines couldn't move me" in an attempt to make a joke in reference to "wild horses couldn't keep me away". XD. Sorry. It's all really funny to me.

+1

I also put forth the theory that planted freshwater aquariums appeal to those of us who are scientifically inclined, whether it be for ecology or chemistry, and that this lends itself to nerdiness being more prevalent, and therefore more acceptable, within our subculture.

Okay, that was way too wordy. I need more coffee.

Something about chevrons. I didn't see very much stargate.

MrBrongher Sundays are usually fine for me, so I don't really care which one we pick. I also have no preference where we go; I'll need a ride if its out of the city or far from public transit, but I'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
10-01-2012 02:06 PM
jellie Same. I can conceivably go to either dates.
10-01-2012 09:53 AM
chibikaie I'm up for anything.
10-01-2012 03:49 AM
ptr Fine with me. We could also meet in Union Square and go to Petco.
