Blog lunch at ATA conference October 8, 2009

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, Random musings.

Since we had such a fun time last year I was thinking it might be good to organize another lunch at this year’s ATA conference for fellow bloggers and those of you who read our blogs. We met last year for lunch on Thursday, the first day of the conference. I suggest we meet in the lobby right at 12:35 or so. I will be presenting the First-Time Attendees presentation until 12:30. Feel free to meet me in the back of the room if you want to be sure to find me.

Since the conference hotel is directly on Times Square I was thinking the Stage Deli might be a good choice. There are plenty of options for both vegetarians and meatatarians. The sandwiches are massive and can be shared or taken back to the hotel to eat for a late-night snack. The hotel is located at 1535 Broadway (on W. 46th) and the Stage Deli is at 834 7th Avenue (which is at W. 53rd and 7th – just 7 blocks down and one over). If anyone has another suggestion, please add a comment here. The restaurant should be within walking distance of the hotel.

If you are interested in joining us, either add a comment or send us an e-mail so we can be sure to look for you.

Hi all,

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the blog lunch. What a pity, I was really looking forward to it.

I will attend the ATA conference only on Saturday, so I hope to meet you then.

As Michael said, have fun and take pictures!

Hi everyone,

Thanks to all of you who joined us. I am trying to install the software for my new computer so that I can upload the photos. It was a bit confusing. Next year I think I’ll just say “meet in front of the Concierge desk.” Who would have thought that check-in was on the EIGHTH FLOOR. Sorry if some of you were trying to find us. I had posted a note on the board, but you might not have noticed it. I should have the pictures up soon.
