Hmm, I haven't been to Providence in years. Tempting. Is this a bar or a restaurant?

smackfu: Yes. It is a bar and a restaurant.

Mulp: Awesome! I look forward to seeing you!

(Crap. You can't really see the hat in my picture. Just trust me. It's a cowboy hat.)

Dammit, I will be down in Rhode Island that day but in South County.

I live in Quincy. I have been to 46 states. Going to Rhode Island, only a couple hour drive, will make it 47.

Hold me.

(I will be there).

I may be able to show, I should know better tomorrow...

You should add this to the meetup sidebar, grapefruitmoon.

Goddamn you folks, all of you. (Not you, Miko.) I'll be celebrating the miracle of lights with my family that one evening.

Crap. Not in RI until around the holidays and already committed this week. Have fun.

Looks like someone picked up my slack on the sidebar. Thanks, mysterious stranger!

I am actually in Quincy myself that day, visiting a friend. On Saturday we'll be in Boston for SWEA Yuletide, drinking glogg, eating delicious holiday bread and meatballs. So no can do, but I will think of you while I am in a drunken, meaty-bready haze later that evening.

Well, i'm pretty new to mefi, but this sounds fun! I'll try to make it. (I can't believe I stumbled across an event going on in Providence!)

If this was a week later, I'd be 40 minutes away and could maybe show up. As it stands, I am too far away and lack transportation. Oh well.
posted by Arturus at 5:37 PM on December 7, 2007

I'm heading out now. Lunit: be there, or be multiplied by yourself.
posted by Eideteker at 12:48 PM on December 8, 2007

Sorry I couldn't make it. Wound up double-booked for the evening with a friend from out of town. Next time.
posted by Ryvar at 2:59 PM on December 8, 2007

Pictures and a video.
posted by Eideteker at 5:51 PM on December 8, 2007

A few more photos. I thought I took more but I don't seem to know how to use my new camera.

(And as a special bonus, some from 2001 Providence. Marvel over how they staged a sports festival in downtown Providence.)
posted by smackfu at 7:55 PM on December 8, 2007

I didn't realize Providence had a 'downtown' yet.

Ba-dum crash.
posted by Ryvar at 10:48 PM on December 8, 2007

I've got a few more pictures to upload when I get home today.

Sadly, the plate of beans photo isn't as funny if you weren't intimately familiar with the befuddlement that is trying to negotiate a bill at a restaurant that rings everything up as "Food."
