Hey, folks. I’ll be visiting New York state for the next week or so – I’m going to be hanging out with my family in Ithaca. I’ve never even met my neice before, so I’m looking forward to the trip.
So if you’re an “Alas” reader in the Ithaca area between August 11 and August 18 and would like to have lunch with Ampersand, leave a comment in this thread and maybe we can work it out.
Also, I’ll be in New York City on Monday the 16th, returning to Ithaca sometime on Tuesday the 17th. Again, any “Alas” readers who’d like to get together while I’m in NYC, leave a comment and maybe we’ll work something out. It looks to me like I’m available for an early dinner on Monday, or for breakfast/early lunch on Tuesday. (Warning to everyone: My dining preferences are for inexpensive diners serving bland American food, rather than interesting ethnic restaurants or expensive coffee shops.)
While I’m in NYC, I’m going to be a guest on Janeane Garofalo’s radio show, The Majority Report. I’ll be debating Megan McArdle, aka Jane Galt, who I hope will not entirely humiliate me. If you’d like to hear me on the air, tune in via radio or webcast at 7:15 pm (eastern) on Monday, August 16.
