Meet Mary Jo and Me in New York for the Windows 8 Launch!


I’m traveling to New York City in the morning for the Windows 8 launch event. But Mary Jo Foley and I are co-hosting a meet-up that evening, and then we’ll be heading over to Times Square for the only midnight Microsoft Store opening in the US. Up for a little midnight madness? Meet me in New York!

Here are the details.

Mary Jo and I will be attending the Windows 8 launch event from 10 am through 3 pm tomorrow, on Thursday, October 25, 2012. From 4 pm until about 5:30 or so, we’ll be at the CNET studios in NYC to record Windows Weekly. (Normally we record at 2 pm on Thursday, but we’ve rescheduled to accommodate the launch event.)

Our meet-up begins at 6:30 pm. Here are the logistics:

Where: Social Bar NYC
When: 6:30 to 9 pm
Why: Why? Why?! To hang out and talk Windows 8/RT, that’s why!
What: We’ll have some giveaways including, hopefully, a ton of Windows 8 Secrets books that I can sign.

After the event, we’ll be heading over to the pop-up Microsoft Store in Times Square for the midnight madness festivities, which start officially at 10:00 pm. (I assume this involves standing in line, assuming you need to buy Windows 8 and/or a Surface with Windows RT immediately.)

If you’re in New York City Thursday, or can be, please do come and say hi. (Our meet-up is open to anyone 21 and over.) Also check out the Microsoft blog post Dear New York, We Invite You to Microtropolis to discover more stuff going on in the city tomorrow.
