There are a couple I believe - there was an informal cgtalk party at someones apartment in the city last summer I think. I'm 3 hours north west of the city though so I wasn't able to attend.

Hey there, I just joined today. I'm in the NY area, and would be glad to attend (or host) a get-together of some sort.

This isn't a cgtalk event but it should appeal to folks in this forum. The NYC IGDA Chapter (International Game Developers Association) is throwing a party next week on Friday, December 8th from 7pm to midnight. It's at Gibson Guitars on 421 West 54th ST. between 9th and 10th. The event is sponsored by Comedy Central Games, Gamelab and Large Animal Games and will feature an open bar, appetizers, and a Guitar Hero 2 tournament with prizes from Harmonix including a chance to win a Gibson Guitar.

I'll consider setting up a get-together in January, then. What do folks like to do when they hang out with other CGTalkers? Troubleshoot each others' projects? Watch CG shorts? Render?

I'm in Stamford, CT (about 45 min train ride into manhatten).
Yeah, I was at the NYC CGtalk bbq a while back. Very very fun.

Okay folks, it's time to get together. I'm scheduling an animators' bash at my apartment for Saturday, January 27th, from noon to six. My place is located in DUMBO, Brooklyn, an artsy neighborhood right on the waterfront. (Don't freak out, it's only one stop from Manhattan, and you can take the A/C train directly from Penn Station. Plenty of parking for you car types.)
Festivities will include: Bagels! A trip to the chocolate factory! Animated shorts on a 92" screen! Yes, really!
My place is located at 135 Plymouth St, #211B (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=135+plymouth+st+11201&ll=40.701748,-73.988189&spn=0.005197,0.008358&t=h), close to High Street Station on the A/C lines, and York Station on the F line. PM me if you plan to come, and want my phone number.
So, bring your laptops to swap tips & show off your stuff with your fellow CGTalkers, and I'll see you all on the 27th...
