Does anyone know anyplace midtown (or nearby with good subway access), where a group of 1-2 dozen people can hang out and drink and shmooze outdoors? We're looking for mellow (but lively) and non-corporate/yuppie (not that there's anything wrong with that). A tough order, I realize. I know a few places in other parts of town, but apparently the organizers of the group want to keep it simple for out-of-towners who need to come and go from Grand Central.
If you can't come up with anyplace outdoors, indoors will do...
