It seems like there's a lot of interest for a Boston meetup in the near future. Fill this out and we can plan something!

Spoiler:
Calling @jrisk, @neon, @zayg, @freddy, @tomsfood, @eyealt, @yubbermax, @mike868y, @calc, @BIGBEE. Hopefully I'm not missing too many people.

i go to bloc 11 a lot because it's next to my apartment. crema cambridge and thinking cup on newbury are real good too. been meaning to try barrington, george howell, and barismo. the best shot i've had in the area thus far though is at triangle coffee, a small coffee stand in brooklyn boulders. tbh though, i only really buy coffee at cafes once or twice a week.

Here are the survey results.

Survey summary:
  • Most common availability is 2/7, ~two weeks from now
  • 2/3 of you wanted to go shopping
  • Half of you are < 21, but 2/3 of you are definitely coming drinking :lol:

Let's do this on the afternoon of 2/7. Exact time TBD.

Shopping: what store ideas did you have in mind? Group shopping can be interesting, but I've never been a fan. We don't all have identical tastes, and it can be awkward to cram a dozen people into a small shop. With that said, the majority of you want to shop. I'd probably be up for some stores that are unique to the Boston area (e.g., Bobby from Boston - I've never been, but it's supposed to be really cool; Drinkwater's - the only EG stockist in the area that I can think of; Louis - staple of Boston, and they're closing this summer). If it's stuff on Newbury, I'll probably leave it up to someone else to plan the "pre-meet", and then everyone can meet up at Flat Top Johnny's by a certain time.

Guests: bring them; the more the merrier! I noticed only one person is bringing someone, but you're all welcome to bring friends.

This format has worked well for us in the past, but you're all welcome to recommend activities, bars, restaurants, etc

I emailed FTJ's to see if I can reserve a couple of tables at 4:30pm. I'll make a post w/ specifics when they get back to me.

Care-Tags Boston Winter Meetup

When: Saturday, February 7 @ 4:30pm

Where: Flat Top Johnny's

We'll start here for pool, appetizers, and drinks. We'll move to some of the other bars/restaurants in the One Kendall Sq complex after a couple of hours. I have the back two pool tables reserved at FTJ's, so if I'm not there at 4:30pm, just head back there. As always, guests are welcome!

PM me if you want my phone number.

Transit: Take the Red line to Kendall/MIT and walk over to the One Kendall Sq complex.

Driving: Park at the One Kendall garage. Parking is $5 all day on Saturday and Sunday (w/ validation, I believe).

Spoiler:
Shopping: No one had any recs for shopping, so I'll leave it up to someone else to plan that out. I'll probably stop by Drinkwater's before; you're all welcome to join!

Tagging confirmed attendees: @jrisk, @CMYK, @neon, @thepinecone, @tomsfood, @eyealt, @g2x222, @yubbermax, @mike868y, @oaked, @bobo77, @BIGBEE

Was supposed to have a job interview tues and go to the bean pot with my buddy from BC after. Interview got rescheduled because of snow/pats parade. Long story short, I may/may not be able to attend b/c of variables. Gotta figure out where I'm staying, how to get there from CT, ect. Long story short, don't expect me, but I may be there.
