Last minute, late notice, totally overkill Boston meetup: In my continuing practice of showing up in a city immediately AFTER a meetup has been successfully held with beer'n'everything, I will be in Boston for the next few days, from Friday May 30 til mid-day Wednesday June 4. Anyone game for a couple beers sometime in there?

It looks like I have plans the night of Saturday the 31st and Sunday June 1, but every other night (so far as I can tell) is free, as are my weekend mid-days.

I'll be staying with friends near JP and will have T access but no car. I'd love a meetup for those so inclined.

I'm doing this on Saturday night as well, with a few non-Mefite friends but I'm pretty sure if people wanted to show up and grab drinks afterwards that'd be cool too.

AFAIK the Boston crowd is always game for a couple beers.

Poop. I will be in Boston the 5th through the 8th and was thinking of seeking a meetup then...

mmahaffie, I'm going to be in or near Boston that weekend. What are you doing on the 7th? not_on_display's band is playing in Salem (nearbyish) maybe we can get a few MeFites to head over...? (sorry fuzzbean!)

Seems like this is when Boston is one big revolving door of Mefites. :)

No worries, Jessamyn, I'll catch you at Anaheim (probably).

Boston's like a meetup conveyor!

I'm hella busy for the next couple of weeks, so I'm going to avoid fuzzbean, mmahaffie, and jessamyn equally. Because I care enough to do what's fair.

If there was just a meetup, I missed it.

I'd invite you over to my new place BUT IT IS A MESS! =O

Boston: Let's Rock

I'm free whenever, but I wouldn't be able to get out to Salem -- sorry n_o_d!

I'll keep an eye on the thread.

I'd be up for anything, provided that at the end of the night everyone pays me $40. That is the new rule for Boston meetups.
posted by Admiral Haddock at 4:54 PM on May 29, 2008

What do you do for that $40, AH?

I'm moving this weekend, but I am totally up for another meetup. Gotta ride the high of the last one until then. Tuesday maybe?

He sings, jess. The Clash, apparently, but I'd imagine he takes requests.

Aieeee! Performance anxiety! I'd be glad to have anyone interested come by and see my band play ... 6/7/08, time unknown, probably 7-ish, Front Street Coffeehouse in Salem ... but this wouldn't be a meetup associated with this thread, if it is a call for a meetup anyway.

And unfortunately, I probably wouldn't be able to hit this meetup window, fuzzbean, but hope you attain critical MeFite mass during your stay here!

AH, you should be paying us for introducing you to Boston! As a witness, however, I hereby declare that AH's karoke was excellent, and was quite tempted to try it myself. It was loud enough to get away with such things.

I'm bringing my 16-year-old up for a Bass-camp at Berklee. She's staying in the dorms and I plan to tourist my way round the city. I'll be staying in Newton and I have few firm plans. If the Red Socks are at home, though....

If you are ever walking the Freedom Trail and are heading from the Old Granary Burial Ground to the King's Chapel Cemetery, stop beneath the giant ONE sign at Beacon Street before you cross over to the graveyard. Turn and face the building behind you. Look to the alcove and wave at the second floor office to the alcove's left.

Congratulations, you've just had a Boston Meetup!

What the hell you people? I live in Salem, but I'll be out of town that weekend :(
posted by mkb at 6:30 AM on May 30, 2008

Well, I have a deadline this weekend, and Horace Rumpole & I will be out of town June 3-8, so I'm not sure we can make another meetup right now. But maybe later in June?
posted by DiscourseMarker at 8:17 AM on May 30, 2008

Dang. I will NEVER get to one of these. People in town for a long weekend. Sorry!

Well, meetup or no, if anyone's free tomorrow night and can get tickets to Mischief in the Machine, I highly highly recommend it. Tonight's show was sold out, and it was fantastic. (No, I'm not affiliated although my friends know a bunch of people involved with the production.)
posted by fuzzbean at 10:35 PM on May 31, 2008

Okay, here's the deal. A bunch of my friends and I are getting together for dinner at Namaskar in Davis tomorrow at 8. Mefites are absolutely invited to come join in the fun (please come! I miss my Mefitey peeps!), but I need to know how many will be showing up so we can update our reservation. Comment in thread or MeMail me and I'll tell you the name the reservation is under in case you show up early.
