12:00 am - 5:00 pm: Coney Island
Meet-up Point: Nathan's Famous -- Take the D, Q N or F train to Stillwell Avenue. This takes about 45 - 60 minutes from midtown Manhattan. Please try to be there AT NOON. At 12:30 we're all going to wander off and then you'll be SAD and ALONE.
Sunday we'll be spending the entire day lounging about Coney Island, strolling the boardwalk, eating a bunch of carnival food and, later in the afternoon, checking out the circus sideshow ($10). There's loads of rides, games and hot dogs... plus an aquarium and beach area: something for everyone. :)
We also intend to go Wizard Planking, so come prepared.
5:00 pm: "The Parting of the Ways" - end of the HOL meetup! Everyone cries, hugs, says goodbye and goes home to catch another showing of Deathly Hallows: Part 2 but this time in 2D because 3D stinks.
7:00 pm: A group of us are getting together to see "Harry and the Potters" perform live in Brooklyn on Sunday night after the meetup. If you want to come as well, I'd suggest buying your tickets online ASAP: I spoke with ticketing and they said that it will most likely be sold out and tickets won't be available at the door. The doors open at 6, show starts at 7. :)
