That wonderful blog The Consumerist is hosting a meetup next week! (Mucho thanks to a co-worker for the nonchalant heads up.) FREE BEER. And food.

Consumerist NYC Meetup: 1/21 5-7pm Dylan Murphy's

Yo gang it's time for another Consumerist meetup with free beer!
Date: Thursday, January 21, 2010
Time: 5-7 p.m.
Place: Dylan Murphy’s - 1453 3rd Avenue (between 83rd and 84th), NYC

We're hooking up with our friend Bob Sullivan of MSNBC's Red Tape Chronicles to do a panel discussion on what's really bringing down the American consumer: poor math skills. Joining us will be BillShrink CEO Peter Phram and Loyola professor Joseph Ganem.

As always, free Consumerist tshirts will be in effect, along with our new anti gift cards and maybe some other things we concoct.

I am sorry that once again we are dissing the rest of the country by continuing to have meetups in the same town where we live. However, we are partially making up for this by making Bob bring snacks. (Last time there were no snacks and multiple parties informed us this was not appropriate).

To get there via subway: 456 to 86th.

About The Consumerist
The Consumerist empowers consumers by informing and entertaining them about the top consumer issues of the day. We are a leading online resource for consumer-driven advice about dealing with everything from non-existent customer service to onerous cell-phone contracts to ever-shrinking (and ever-more-expensive) grocery products. The Consumerist is published by Consumer Media LLC, a not-for-profit subsidiary of Consumers Union, and takes no outside advertising.

The Consumerist highlights the persistent, shameless gaffes of modern consumerism - and the latest scams, rip-offs, hot deals and freebies. We also encourage our readers to tell us about their everyday experiences with absurdities of consumer culture - and suggest ways for them to fight back.
