I'm in!  I'm in!  Yay!  I am getting pretty excited!

Not sure if I'm more excited about my 1st trip to NY, the concert, or meeting some incredible special people in person!

I may not sleep in the days before, lol.

My name may be on the list, but we all know that EdgeFest is the hostess with the most-est!

Just an FYI, this is not an "official" @U2 event, just a bunch of us forum members throwing a party.  When EF gets home from work she'll make some changes so as to avoid confusion.  Wouldn't want anyone blaming Matt unfairly for this insanity!   :D

Oh there are all sorts of recipes being discussed here:
http://forum.atu2.com/index.php/topic,223.msg590574.html#msg590574

ADAM:
Jameson with a shot of lime juice

BONO:
3/4 vodka
1/4 triple sec
Drop into RockStar (or Red Bull) and drink

EDGE:
3/4 Jameson
1/4 Amaretto

LARRY:
TBA.  Plans are to perfect this in Edgemonton.

PAUL:
The "Paul McGuinness" shot: TPM is fashioned after the "Baby Guinness shot" which (brace yerselves) shockingly looks like a wee pint of Guinness.  It's Tia Maria with a head of Baileys or they float irish cream on top (that's how they made them in Vegas).  The 5th member will get you super loaded.

If you and Witsa can agree, the motion is passed.  However, you still can't beat the original name of the original Adam - it was named very aptly ;)

Hi New York Ladies!  I have friends over there at Zootopia, specifically New York Tony and Todd who we partied with in Vegas.  They are planning tail gate parties at the NY and NJ concerts at Zootopia.
I asked Edgefest and with her permission I posted the deets of this fan gathering at Zootopia for them as well.  Tony is the most fun you can have without the cops being involved.  It is another reason I wish I was going to NYC too! 
Seems like so many great people I know will be there!

So Witsa you have to give NYTony a big hug for me if you see him again.  He got engaged to Carmina! 

Anyhoo...sorry to butt in on yer thread, good luck with your planning!!

Thanks Heather for the plug - I'm going to go over there and post a bit too :)

As for NY - the 6 hosts are going to be there until late late, so even if you miss the U2 part, please come for the 80s party to tear it up with us.  The bar also said that if a lot of U2ers are there they would continue the U2 later :D

We're working really hard on unique door prizes, should be tons of fun - spread the word!

NY Tony is so funny!  I haven't been in the chat over there for a while, (helps that it's blocked at work)
Carmina is so sweet!  That's great for them!

Thanks to everyone who did come to the party. I met some really nice U2 fans including a couple from Australia who I believe are moving to NYC. I brought my "posse" of college pals and they had a great time too. We had a decent size crowd considering the concert was canceled. It was a lot of fun. I hope everyone liked their prizes! It was a nice collection of stuff. My friend's boyfriend won a great framed photo of Adam (taken by an amazing photographer  ;)) . He is giving it to his son who is a U2 fan and a bass player. Another nice "Bono girl" won my Agnes doll. She was really thrilled to hear the background behind who made it.

So the drinks - $3.00 beers, 5.00 mixed .

Meeting my forum friends for the first time in person and getting to hug them........................PRICELESS  ;)

See you in July, 2011.

It was a lot of fun, lots of cool people were there, although I'm not sure how many from this forum.  Best part?  We got to meet SG in person!  :-*  Worst part?  No Juls.  :'(

Unfortunately, after our two hours were up they started playing a lot of newer songs that none of us knew.  We stayed awhile, then finally left.  As we were standing out on the sidewalk debating where to go next, they started playing 80s music again, so we went back in!   :D  After a while we realized that we were twice the age of most everyone in there, so we left but not until after one last U2 song.  It was time to go anyway, it was packed, hot, and the women's restroom ran out of TP.  EF lead the way through the crowd with her JTEH, taking out eyes on the way.   ;D
