Do you feel that? There's excitement in the air. The next Engadget reader meetup is approaching. We're still buzzing from our Seattle event and are excited to bring some of that gadgety magic to the New York area. We've also been given the go ahead to open up some more tickets for the event, which will be going down on November 29th at Roseland in Manhattan. Make sure you're on the list by entering all of the pertinent info here.

Oh, and if you're interested in sponsoring the event, there's still time. Just drop us a line at sponsors [at] engadget [dot] com.
