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.

- I've only ever made it to one meeting and would very much like to join you at the Symposium. A month of in-patient physical therapy following knee replacement keeps me elsewhere. — Robert Greer (talk) 11:50, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
