You asked for it, and now we're bringing our sonic screwdriver and some alien hordes to NYC for an io9 meetup. Charlie Jane and myself will be in New York next week, and that means all the io9 editors will be in the same city at once — so come get drunk with us and Meredith, talk shit about Batman, and plan for ways we can populate Mars. Bring robots if you have any. We're meeting next Wednesday, 5/28, at The Magician bar from 7-9 PM (that gives you at least one hour of happy hour). Free drinks to the first ten io9ers who show up. After that, you'll have to regale us with action figures or robots if you want free drinks.
