If you’re a New York area resident or happen to be visiting next week, our small meet-up has turned into a full blown BoardingArea event! We’ve upgraded our location to comfortably accommodate all 101 readers who have already RSVP’d and have even made room for additional attendees.  The LCL: Bar & Kitchen located @ The Westin New York Grand Central (which just opened in October) has generously agreed to host our event. All are welcome to attend from near or far, though responses are required in order to confirm sufficient space. Very much looking forward to finally putting a face to some of the screen names and chatting about all things travel related. Please RSVP using this link.

When: Thursday, April 11th from 7pm-10pm

WhereTHE LCL: Bar & Kitchen @ The Westin New York Grand Central, 212 East 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017 (btwn 2nd and 3rd)

Who: The event started as a Point Me to the Plane reader meet-up but we are very excited to have Deals We Like, Just Another Points Traveler, modhop, Rapid Travel Chai, and The Wandering Aramean all tentatively attending as well! Jason from Food, Wine, and Miles on Frist2Board and Fozz on uptime! will also be in attendance.

How: RSVP required if you haven’t already, please click here. If you can’t make it this time don’t worry, hopefully this is the first of many to come.

Eats: There will be both a cash bar and food menu available in our dedicated area.
