The April 2011 New York City Meetup event will be held at 5pm on Saturday April 23, 2011 at Food Gallery 32 @ 11 W 32nd St in the Midtown Manhattan neighborhood of Koreatown.


  • Food Gallery 32 @ 11 W 32nd St (between 5th Ave & Broadway in Koreatown). 5:00PM onwards, maybe drinks or brownies later.
