Default Boston Area Meet Up - Happened Already :) Thanks everyone!

It's been a while, and some people are going to be in Boston on June 15th, so let's do a meet up.

When: June 15th, 2010 @ 7 PM
Where: Corner Cafe in the North End, 87 Prince Street, (617) 523-8997

The bar is a small town bar, with two taps, lots of bottles, and really good cheap but substantial food. It's hardly ever crowded, and yet is always entertaining.

Just an FYI, the bar is cash only, but drinks are cheap.

---
Just letting you guys know, it looks like I'm having ANOTHER meet up at the same place (for a different reason), same time one week after this (June 22nd). For those that can't make this meet up, feel free to try and make that one

I should be able to make it, looks like that is about 1.4 miles from my hotel so shouldn't be a big deal, put me as a "likely"

looking forward to it!


Matt, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be late because I can't go to the north end and not get italian food. I'll head down right after work, grab some food, then come to the bar after dinner.

Here's where I work, why don't you take a guess?

Also, anything under $75 on my corporate Amex doesn't require a receipt

Intermission Tavern is also a possible idea, but I'd prefer Corner

I live in NH, but work in Burlington. Maybe I can swing this with the better half.

Should I go?

I find this online meet bit strange, never been to one of those. By the looks of it, I'd just be having few beers with few guys.

I love meeting new people, but this strikes me as... 'onliney'

Ok, I'll bite - put me as a 75% of going. I'm picking up my Russian girls from the airport that night so it would be good timing.

You've never randomly met people IRL that you knew online? I've had a couple Detroit meets where I had NO idea what the people looked or acted like and those both went fine

I owe you a few beers, definitely come by! Hope you have a spare Russian, I'll be in a 3 piece suit so the ladies don't stand a chance.
