Full Meetup Calendar

The April 2013 New York City Meetup event will be held on Sunday Apr 14, at Symposium Greek Restaurant @ 544 W 113th St (in the back room), on the Upper West Side in the Columbia University area.

What, Where, When, and How?[edit]

There is a public meeting in the afternoon at the appropriately-named Symposium Greek Restaurant (in the back room), where we take further steps to organize the Wikimedia New York City local chapter, and provide a salon-style forum for discussion of Wikipedia and Wikimedia issues.

Right afterward, there is an optional post-meeting Wiki-Dinner at the same venue.

Main public meeting[edit]
