  • NYC (And ish) People



    Been thinking about doing a bbq-type thing at Prospect Park in July or Aug on a weekend. Wondering if there's enough NYC people here to make a go of it.


    Basically, it'd be a 'bring your own meat' type thing, and potluck for vegetables. You could then grill your meat, or share with others, or whatever.


    And then have some primal & primal-ish group activities.


    If anyone wanted to do demonstrations of a food technique or of something athletic, that'd be neat, too.

      Same here. I am not sure about the exercising thing but think it would be fun to meet.

          Aww... I'm too far away. I'm upstate, near Rochester.


          I gotta say, I love the idea of Primal gatherings. I remember Meet-Up used to be a big thing. I wonder if there are any meet-up groups.

            Hey Tim - If you do this and it coincides with my trip to NYC, I'd like to join in. We haven't set a travel date yet but will be late July or early August.

              That is, if it ever stops raining in NYC. Which appears less likely day by day. Canoeing is primal, right?

                I am loving the weather in NYC. I find it ideal for working: baroque classical music, coffee, dim yellow lights and a nearby window to watch the rain and lightning. Wish it was cold enough to light a fireplace.


                I'll miss this a lot when the city turns into a hot humid microwave next month.

                  Bumping this thread.


                  Given that the west-coasters are having a meet up, New Yorkers can't just take that sitting down. Looks like we have about 6 people or so interested. Prospect Park is great in early August. A couple of frisbees, maybe a football or two to toss around, and a commandeered grill sound about right. I'd be in. Anyone else interested in picking a weekend day and hitting the park?

                    I -might- be able to do it. I'm in Boston but the buses to NYC are super cheap, and my boyfriend's family lives near there so housing wouldn't be a problem.

                      If you guys do this I'd love to hear about your experience and see pics. If there are any photos send them on over to mark@marksdailyapple.com and maybe I'll highlight the meetup in a blog post.


                      Grok meetup! Awesome. Cheers!

                        Mark, have you thought of making a Primal Blueprint Flickr group so people can post photos of their primal activities, foods, gatherings, etc there? I think you'd get a lot of participation.

                              I might be able to make it. I'm in northern NJ. I could bring a couple of kettlebells and frisbees.
