The NYC Chive Meetup update: Looking for new venue!

 The NYC Chive Meetup update: Looking for new venue!

Last month, we announced we were going to have a grand meetup in NYC at the end of June. The meetup is still on like Donkey Kong, our plane tickets and hotel rooms are booked; we’ve been day drinking for weeks to prepare… but we need your help!

We’ve outgrown the location we booked previously. After thousands of Chivers showed up for our San Diego meetup, we realized we’re going to need a bigger boat. We’re now seeking a location that holds at least 500 people.

I’m going to book the location today and announce it on Monday (I hope) so if you’re a bar or club owner in NYC contact us at thechiverules [at] gmail [dot] com as soon as possible. Your bar must be available on Thursday , June 28th!

Note: Bar owners/ managers only, please don’t email us if you ‘know of a place’ or you have a ‘friend that runs a joint’, we’ve got to finalize this today and we need to talk to somebody who understands what’s about to happen.

This is going to be our biggest meetup ever and we can’t wait to raise a glass with our Chivers. More info when we have it on Monday (fingers crossed).

    I was at the SD meetup, John came out to talk to people in line a couple times, you could tell he was a little overwhelmed by how many people showed up, the line stretched for blocks. so yeah, they gonna need a bigger boat for NYC, it's going to be a mad house of awesome

    • AnyoneForCoffee

      A boat, you say…..

    • Twister

      Did anyone else find it weird that he kept pulling up his shirt and rubbing his nipple while you were talking to him?

  • Kopach


  • Skadoosh

  • Josh Luna

    • Honest

      • Nickb

        This needs to happen.

  • @rickybello

    Yessssss see you chivers

  • Mikey

    Come to Chicago!

  • Bradyized

    I hate the fact that my company is sending me on a 3 day trip the day before this. I've been looking forward to this since the original announcement. Not cool.

  • Blair

    Chive! Why no DC meetup!?

  • echogeo

    Heading on vacation in another direction. DAMMIT! John, you're so close to Boston. One more hop & you are here! Next time? We'll make room.

    • LucretiusCarus

      We Boston Chivers don't seem to be able to get our shit together with a meetup. But neither do John and Co. I don't feel so bad now.

      • Woop

        That's cos Bostonians are a little snobby and basically dont like people they haven't grown up with or aren't already in their group/clique. Lived there for 2 years and if it wasnt for the fact i was Aussie, they might have not cared. Nice people once i got to know you guys but still, its an observation echoed by other Americans moving to Boston.

      • MarthaJeane

        I'm thinking of just setting a date, then sending in a picture of my ass with the date, time, and place and request it gets stuck in the DAR.

        • Capt. Picard

          "Make it so."

        • LucretiusCarus

          Now this is a plan I can get behind, so to speak.

    • Trailer Ray

      they seriously need to get their asses out here to beantown

  • CanuckChiver

    Dammit…why u no come to Toronto!!

  • 911

    Chive, how's about a Toronto Canada meet?

    • Adam

      You and CanuckChiver rock!!! Come on Chive! Come to Canada to scope all our sexy Chivettes!!

  • cmui

    I can't wait for this! you're going to need a huge spot, I recommend one of the beer gardens in queens, they have tons of space.

  • @lackofabetter


  • Jack


  • Pow

    Joshua tree or 3rd and long!

    • Bradyized

      3rd and long is WAY to small. Any of those 3rd Ave bars are too small unless they head to Tonic

  • James Ramos

    I vote for a S.F. meet up! Make it happen!

    • Onizel

      I agree

  • Bronx

    Just take over the entire South Street Seaport or the Intrepid!!

    • Bradyized

      Beekman Beer Garden! That's a grand location!

  • Mike

    BRIDGEVIEW. Island park. Forget the city

    • Nikki

      Unless your 16, no one wants to go to bridgeview.

      • Aj D'Amico

        truth nikki, truth. even when i was 16 i didnt want to go there.

  • Trailer Ray

    Boston meetup. That is all…

  • Dizz

    Come to Tucson! Cant believe I got thru that with a straight face… No really!?

  • DamageControlman

    count me in

  • Paula_

    Meh. Why bother meeting Chivers?

    – fan testimonial: "You'll have to talk to your friends at the site. They have pictures of the other cakes… – MarthaJeane"

    • Woop

      I'm baffled by the majority of your fan testimonials. I guess you're just much smarter than me.

      • insanely great

        ah here! Paula much smarter than you! such an innacuracy; she's smarter than everyone..:)

        • LucretiusCarus

          Except she's a he. But that's just a detail.

          • insanely great

            I don't know whether to be very excited or bitterly disapointed by this bit of news

            …who is she/he Bob, John or Mac?

            • Paula_

              Why does everyone think I am a guy meow? Chivers are weird.

              -the one you love to hate

              • insanely great

                Guy/Gal/ 'internet'.

                yes indeed we are very, very weird. And you're completely 'normal' of course 😉

            • LucretiusCarus

              None of them, so far as I know. But I was convinced for a while he was Mac.

    • Honest

      Meh. Why you so terrible at life Paula?

    • Mattlaw28

      Do u have to be 21 to go?

      • Paula_

        No, just 'brainless' will do.

        – >21
