What, Where, When, and How?
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
(to discuss Wikipedia issues and Wikimedia NYC chapter issues):
- Symposium Greek Restaurant @ 544 W 113th St (in the back room) on the Upper West Side. 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
Optional post-meeting Wiki-Dinner
- Stay at Symposium Greek Restaurant, shuffle tables and chairs, and then nosh and schmooze, wiki-style. 5:00 PM onwards.
