If you’re a Matadorian who plans to be in New York for TBEX, you’re invited to our Saturday night get-together.

The communal table is already filling up for Matador’s TBEX dinner.

Confirmed Matadorians in town for TBEX who will be having dinner together on Saturday night include Matador Goods’ editor, Lola Akinmade, associate editors JoAnna Haugen and Candice Walsh, interns Abbie Mood and Nancy Harder, Matador’s social media ninja, Andy Hayes, and myself.

Dinner–at a restaurant to be announced (plenty of vegan and vegetarian options)–will be preceded by a walk on the High Line and followed by drinks and Cuban music at Son Cubano, both in the West Village’s Meatpacking District.

If you’d like to RSVP, please email julie[at]matadornetwork[dot]com by May 1. Please include your full name and the number of people who will be accompanying you.

      Yikes! Sorry Eileen. I think I wrote this at 3 AM, so please forgive the oversight!

      We love you Eileen and promise to give you an extra big ambushed hug when we get together!

    I’ll be at TBEX. Is there an “I’ll try my best to be there” option? I don’t have plans locked down yet, but would love to party with the Matador gang!
