AOA Midtown party photos


At Midtown.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the AOA's Midtown party last Thursday. It was good to meet so many new people for the first time -- and great to see so many again.

Thanks also to the Midtown Tap and Tea Room for making us some really tasty snacks.

A handful of photos are after the jump.

Thanks to Peter, Chris, Celina and Justin for the photos. If you have photos from the party, please send them along!


And yet, still no Kristi. *sigh*. Night cam, Schmight cam.

FYI, first photo, this is: the back of Bob F., Kim D., the back of Bennett (obviously his best side), Glenna. Some tall bald guy at the bar is trying to order chocolate mousse.

Thanks for the party (aww the deviled eggs).

Hey! I know some of those people. Even without name tags!

Those deviled eggs were the bomb.

I was hoping I could pass as Freddy Krueger in that first photo, no dice, THANKS SEB.

Honestly, have you ever seen so many good looking people in one place? If the AOA crowd got any hotter, they'd have to take us to the emergency room. Oh yeah *high five*!

Thanks for the photos. I love putting commenter's names with faces (although B's face has been planted in my mind since the early 1990s). And, -S, you spent plenty of time breathing the same air as the NC crew when we came to Wolff's. What more do you want (beside my crown?)

Definitely bummed I didn't make it to the Midtown party. We shot two decent Night Cams in Saratoga, though. Check them out starting this week.

AOA, looking forward to your next Deviled egg-heavy meet-up.

Great party.

It is wonderful to see so many people in one place who appreciate having a quality, truly alternative news source for the region.

Keep up the good work.

(although B's face has been planted in my mind since the early 1990s)

And I truly, sincerely apologize for that, I'm sure the therapy bills have been staggering.

So great to meet everyone.

Thanks, AOA, you throw a great party! It was nice meeting and seeing everyone.

I'm in the background of 4 photos.

@kristi: aww high school; I think B is still angry you made the weightlifting team and he didn't, though I hear he was a fine cheerleader. If you come next time, we will have something special for you :) Very fashionable I can assure you. And you can say hi to Jackie.

loved the party--thank you!

that place is a nice addition to the neighborhood, 'tho I do wonder about the "Tea" part..."Hey gang, let's go out for a beer..oh and some nice lapsang souchong..."
but was glad to get out and was quite surprised to find that in the years since I've embraced my inner hermit, cocktails (or, at least the fancy ones) now cost $9.

It was good to meet some of you! We totally need nametags next time, and I know I at least have to be better about talking to people I don't know. Good times!

Thanks AOA!

Do something at a state park maybe? We had our anniversary at Thacher Park. There are a lot of logistics when you do it that way, but it's a beautiful view, there is a pavilion so you don't need a tent, and they have bathrooms so you don't need to rent potties.
