Serial Diners

  • c

Announcing the first meeting of the NY Serial Diners!!! The original is in Toronto. The idea is to go to restaurants (cheap -- $10 or under) alphabetically (according to the Yellow Pages). There might be some interesting variations on this theme, but, if you're into this, just show up at the SW corner of 60 St. and Second Ave. at 6 pm on Wed., May 24th, and then we'll figure out where we're going. See ya!!!

    Are you for real?! Have you done this before? I am intrigued!! But wary... will you be there with the yellow pages? Dinner for TEN dollars?? Isn't 6:00 a bit early? That would be for the Serial Cocktail hour club!

      yah - it's early but that increases your chances of catching early bird specials and getting a bit more for the ten bucks! liver and onions anyone?

        Woof, woof, Jessica and Rebecca! As the first 2 chowhounds to post, you will each receive a free glass of water at whatever place we end up at. Ha ha. Yes, i am for real. I'm willing to go at 7:00 or later if that's what people prefer. To answer your ?s, J: 1. No, i am not bringing the Yellow Pages. We might eventually use it, but, for now, my idea was to go alphabetically between 60 and 65 St., either on First or Second Ave., mainly because i live near there and it's convenient. The original Toronto SDs go by the YP, but i'd rather try my variation first. (Have you looked at the YP lately? I'm not sure i want to spend the next 6 months going to dull-sounding places that start with "A"). Oops -- i forgot your other ?s. I'll be back in a minute with more.
