Consumerist NYC Meetup Next Week! 1/21

Consumerist’s next New York meetup is coming up fast. It’s Thursday, Jan 21, 5-7pm, Dylan Murphy’s, 1453 3rd Ave, free beer and snackies. We are joining forces with super awesome consumer cat Bob Sullivan of MSNBC’s The Red Tape Chronicles to do this one. The format for the evening is: chaos – panel discussion on how the greatest threat to consumers is their inability to do math – chaos. If you are working media/blogger you can RSVP to for a press kit and a review copy of Bob’s new book, Stop Getting Ripped Off. Inside, parking and directions info.

Note: I read the comments on the last post and saw a lot of people asking for a Friday or Saturday meetup. That’s great! We hear you loud and clear and will see about doing that for the next one.
