    ShareASale RoadShow: Albany
    A couple years ago, we shipped out a box of ShareASale goodies to a bunch of ABWebbers that met up at a food court in Albany. I distinctly remember that Brian wanted to go, but couldn't make it because of his travel schedule. So we're hoping to make it up to you this year. Rhea and Mellie are helping to pull this gathering together, and thanks to them, we've got a private room at Slow Jeds Mud House! (Owner's hoping we'll buy some desserts with our coffee...which absolutely works for me!) Oh! And they have WiFi...maybe we'll set up a webcam for the folks who can't attend, lol!

    We'll probably be there from 11a-3p, so if you're able to swing by and talk shop, that'd be fantastic! Please post here so we can forward the deets

    UPDATE: We'll now be meeting at the Albany Pump Station, 11:30a-3p. Located at 19 Quackenbush Sq

    I'll be there! (And yes, the brownies are to die for!) Will you be joining us, Herb?

    I'm going to need a head count on this gathering. (The room can accommodate 16 people.)

    Slow Jed's only serves yummy coffee drinks and desserts but there's a nice pharmacy across he street with a cafe that serves lunch and has seating if anyone needs to grab something more substantial to eat.

    If you're coming in by train I can pick you up at the station and ferry you back and forth, just let me know what time you're arriving. If you're coming by car and need help with directions just let me know.

    Talking
    Gail can take the day off, so I'm planning on it. Got to get some car fixes first but that may happen this coming week. Put us down for two; the brownies are calling me . . .

    Head's up...
    Slow Jeds is Closed and they are hoping to open again by Aug 1
    http://www.slowjeds.com/

    Therefore, beginning MONDAY, JUNE 29th, Slow Jeds will be CLOSED for a medical hiatus.

    Rest assured, THIS IS NOT A PERMANENT CLOSURE. It is a rest period so that our owner can get to feeling better and return fresh and ready to caffeinate the community!

    Slow Jeds will REOPEN no later than AUGUST 1st.

    I really don't know that area, or Albany itself. May need only a Plan B to kick in if they don't open around August 1.

    Hey, that conference center the original NY Group met at would be OK. (just kidding, but the Cheesecake Factory (was that it, folks?) which I missed, sounded good.) Or the coffee shop across the way might be big enough.

    I will get on this as soon as I return on Monday (on minin vacation). Since I live 3 hours out of Albany, I would have to search. We'll find something!

    The Desmond was great Herb, location, food.. might be a little pricey. The Cheesecake Factory followed by the coffee shop is an option.

    Mmmm ... if you are willing to travel up the Northway a bit, there are probably a dozen possibilities in Saratoga! It's a "dark day" (no racing), but right in the middle of the race meet, so it will be teaming with people but Tuesdays can be lots of fun. Much to do before and after if people are so inclined. And literally dozens of places that serve lunch, coffee, or snacks. (Mind you, I am not a ShareaSale affiliate - yet - but if you relocate to Saratoga I will certainly drop in).

    A fun alternative to Slow Jed's is the Albany Pump Station. This is a microbrewery with a restaurant that serves terrific lunch fare including salads, burgers, awesome fries and out-of-this-world homemade onion rings.

    Perfect, I *HEART* onion rings...though they're going to have to be pretty good. My all-time favorite right now is from Cheli's Chili in Detroit. Those are almost worth an 8 hour drive. Oh wait, I'm driving about 21 hours to get to Albany. Those better be some damn good rings!!

    Hmmm...
    I'm considering this... it's not a far hop from Manhattan via Amtrak. Is the meeting place far from the Amtrak station? Have to hit Mapquest...

    As Carolyn mentioned, one of us can pick you up from the station. Let us know what time you'd be arriving. It'll be nice to meet you.

    Ditto what Mellie said, hope to see you there! I'll even give you an extra car magnet to put on Amtrak for your return trip.

    Head count?
    How has the attendance response rate been (off-board)? And how about the Philly meetup?

    Pretty good so far! Hoping for about 10-15 (or more) per place, Philly is looking to be a fun group as well
