My First Internet Marketers Of New York Get Together
The 18 of us went to Abigaels on Broadway. My second time there, it is a nice kosher place, a steak house - and I think it was OK. I appreciate going kosher this time - thanks Greg!
I missed the first two meetings. Honestly, the first one I totally forgot about. The second one, I was in Israel for. But the third one, I made and happy I did so. For the first 90 minutes, a bunch of us sat at a table and drank beer - well, I didn't, I was the only one who drove to the event. But the rest continued to constantly drink beer - at one point the place ran out of cold beers but they recovered quickly. We ordered steaks and chicken and the rest of the stuff. I got some of the kosher jokes - why don't they serve this or that. All in good humor.
Let me give you the before and after...
Before I left, my wife asked me if I am going to shave. I said no, it is an informal meeting of just people who have similar interests. So I went off to the event looking like a wolf. Not sure if that insulted anyone. :-)
When I got back, my wife asked me:
Wife: So what is this thing.
Me: I told her it is a bunch of SEOs getting together to eat.
Wife: So do you do business?
Me: No, not really. Business is not the focus of this, it is just to get together.
Wife: You get together to do what?
Me: To ear and drink.
Me: Oh, and I am the founding member of this organization.
Wife: So you are a founding member of an organization about eating and drinking?
Me: Um, yea, I guess so.
