Boston-area pre-meetup?

Postby Cosmologicon » Mon Sep 17, 2007 3:49 pm UTC

Would people in the Boston/Cambridge area be interested in meeting for dinner, say Wednesday or Thursday? I think it would be good if we were a little more cohesive ahead of time, before carloads of people arrive and the insanity begins.

If there's interest I'll make a reservation.

I live in Cambridge, but I won't have free time on Wednesday. I would enjoy doing something on Thursday, still. I do not own any private transportation, so choosing a location accessible by T would make me quite happy.

I'm up for it, but I second the request for T-accessible location.

We've actually been talking already about meeting either or both of those days in the Cybervillain Meetup thread.

I thought we had settled on Wednesday but today I see talk of Thursday, so I'm not really sure what's going on with the plans. Far as I can tell though, we'll be meeting in Somerville, in one of three places in the general area of the meetup spot.

I believe Wednesday is the Fire and Ice dinner?

I can't really afford to go there twice in two weeks, and Cat offered to make pasta.

appologies - I had various things to deal with this week. Pretty serious things, so dinners and such were not an option.

All right, it's not like it's gonna hurt my feelings or anything if people don't wanna, but I figured I'd ask!

My whole weekend has already been scheduled. Why not come along to the Museum tomorrow? Should be able to form some sort of group either before or after the planetarium show, even if we don't all coordinate arrival (I don't know for sure when I'll be there, as Yom Kippur services are tomorrow morning).
