edited March 2012 in PAX Archive
Are you going to be in Boston at lunchtime on Thursday? Do you enjoy cheap, greasy foods? Do you like socializing with PAXers?

Then join us for lunch!
This was started last year by MelesMeles. As he has joined the ranks of [E] and is devoting his time to them, he will not be organizing it this year. So I am!

What: On nom nom
Where: Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall (seating area is in the middle of the market, then head upstairs to the movable tables)
When: Thursday, 1:30pm. At 2:30, we'll be making an excursion for pastries.

Market's PDF Directory
Mike's Pastries

Interested? Questions? Comments? Let me know! (No hard and fast signups required; you can just show up. People on the MMT need not express interest as this will be our lunch spot.)

    Posting to track updates. I will be in Boston on Thursday and am interested in consuming terribly greasy food that is delicious.

    My plane lands at 2pm. :(

    I'd love to join if you guys are still there, elsewise I guess I can eat alone.

    I'm fairly certain we'll at least be in the area. PPFFE is usually followed by a trek to the North End for Mikes Pastry.

    I would be interested if it was ~1 pm or later, though I was planning for my first lunch to be at Whisky Priest so-far.

  • punziepunzie Registered User regular
    It's likely (but not definite!) that lunch will be 1-2pm and at 2 we will go for sugary goodness at Mike's Pastry. Again, it depends on how the MMT schedule comes out. Regardless of the actual time, we WILL be going to Mike's right after lunch.

    My plans are up in the air after 3pm. I figure it'll take me till at least then to get to my hotel and drop my bags before heading out to enjoy Boston.

    Oddly, I couldn't stand them.... I'm kinda surprised you guys don't swarm the South Street Diner though.

    I haven't actually been there, but I've heard it's on the small side. We took up about 1/4 of the upstairs seating area in the market last year. Plus there are more options at the market and we are not overloading a single vendor or waitstaff.

    We should retitled this thread "The Fatty McNomNom Thread".

    Just because it's too good a name to not use.

    It IS a little small. I'd say it seats maybe 40, including the outside seats. That's probably a decent reason, I suppose :)

    I added a list of interested parties to the OP. Of course you aren't required to show up. KellyShepard087, I left you off because I'm pretty sure we'll be gone by the time you can get there :(

    Since the MMT schedule is finished and posted, I can say that our official start time for lunch will be 1:30. It's a little later than what I wanted, but that's just how it worked out.
    Lunch from 1:30-2:30
    Pastries from 2:30-3:30

    I might also have some forum badges to hand out.

    My family will be there. We fly into Boston at about 10:30am, so that gives us time to hopefully have early check-in at the Seaport. There will be three of us and we'll have trading cards available for anyone doing that.

    I'll be at the fried food extravaganza! :) But I will not accompany you to pastry-time. Despite my love for cannolis.

    I'm a local kid and I might interested in coming to this... If I am willing to skip two classes for the day.

  • CreamsteakCreamsteak Registered User regular
    I'm now able to confirm that I should (almost definitely) be able to make it. Flight arrives before 11, so I've got plenty of time to sort out things.

  • punziepunzie Registered User regular
    Added! Glad to see more people gaining interest. :)

    Put me down! I'm a Boston local so I have no reason not to go.

    Also, for those of you doing Pokecrawl, this might be a good idea if your tolerance isn't terribly high and you want to get through the challenges without being too drunk to function at the end of the night. Having greasy food in your stomach before drinking always mitigates the effects of alcohol, but you'll probably be drinking so much at Pokecrawl you'll still have a good time!

    Hi dudes. Sadsauce update. For some reason I got myself all confused on my schedule, and already have something booked for Thursday lunch (thought it was Wednesday.) Sorry I will miss you all, but hopefully I'll see many of you at the crawl later on! :)

    I'd love to join my fellow PAXers here, but I can't commit just yet. Is there a deadline for confirming/denying attendance to this?

    Sounds like a plan! Good excuse to bring my out of town guest to fanueil

    Absolutely not. Since we don't have a reservation or anything like that, anyone can just show up. :)
