    I know it's short notice, but we're trying to put together our first Northern NJ Meet-up tomorrow, August 6, at 11:30. We're going to meet at the Chipotle in Paramus:


    Chipotle Mexican Grill
    81 Route 4 West, Paramus, NJ 07652

    I'll have some newer stuff and some older classics for sale or trade! Feel free to stop by!!

    I'd love to go, but I'm not sure I can swing it. I'll see if I can't get a ride there. I've got plenty of items to get rid of. I've decided to dismiss my vintage non-toy merchandise. Rare obscurities for the win!

    I live in Mercer County - that'd be fantastic, and I could definitely make it then. As of now I'm not going to be able to head to Paramus; it's too far away for the pittance worth of fuel that I possess. There's an awesome diner on Broad St. in Trenton called "The Broad Street Diner." It used to be called Manetta's - and the food was awesome. It's rather easy to get to from I-195 as well. Keep this thread bumpin!

    The problem with Mercer County/ Trenton is it's very close to Philly. I picked Paramus because we have a bunch of members that live and hunt in Bergen County and that area who may not want to drive that far (I'm certainly willing to go to Philly, but others not so much). I also wanted to put this one in a place where people in NY/ Westchester can drive to (it's 10 minutes off the GWB).

    If the time is an issue, we can do it later (I picked 11:30 arbitrarily). But I do think we should stay in the Bergen area.

    Why don't we do this. To give everyone more notice, we'll move the date and time. The Delaware meet up is next week, so we'll need to push until the week after. So, instead of tomorrow, we'll have the meet up on Saturday August 20, 2011. We'll shoot for 1:30 (though if there is consensus for later, we'll do it later). This gives everyone two weeks' notice.

    I still think we should do it in Bergen on or around Rt 4 so that anyone from NY that can make it does. If Chipotle isn't everyone's bag there is a great diner called the Gotham Diner that is a little further south on Rt. 4. We can always do it there.

    Eh, I would go, but I'll be in the Philippines and if I could, I'll look awkward as the only 14 year old there.

    I think the plan is still to try to get together next Saturday at the Chipotle in Paramus. We're going to start at 12:30 to give people who are traveling time to get there.

    I'm down if I can get my friend's car, which I probably will. I don't want to take my Jeep that far from home due to that inspection sticker on it.

    Much as I'd love to come, that's both too far and at a bad time for me. If there were one in say Monmouth/Ocean/Middlesex counties and not in the middle of the day I'd try to make it. Stupid overnight schedule...



    It'd be like Cartman showing up at the NAMBLA meeting.

    Too funny.

    I remember being on the overnight shift, it really sucked. Once we get the Northern NJ meet ups going, I'm happy to start to work on the Central NJ/ Jersey Shore meet up. My wife works in Red Bank, and I'm sure she'd love to come.

    This sounds like a great idea.

    I would rather meet up in Middlesex County... I'm in Rahway (Woodbridge)...

    Bringing "extra" trade figures sounds like a good idea...

    Thank you for the invite!
