    Yay! Schedule is out! BTW what happen to the duck tour?

    I'm so excited! this will be our first MMT, hopeful there will be some pins left on Thursday... We will try to make it to the meet up on Thursday morning... Not sure about the ETA as our plane doesn't arrive in Boston until 8:30am and we need to go through customs and drop stuff off at the hotel first.

    The Duck Tour didn't make the cut, with a final tally of +11. It was beat out by the aquarium which had a tally of +12.

    Reminder to everyone who wants to meet up with us later than the morning meetup (or really anyone who wants to come), follow the twitter pax_mmt to get updates on where we are and any schedule changes. For example, last year we were late somewhere be ause of a problem on the T, Wednesday's lunch ran long so we skipped the next place, etc. These changes are all posted to the twitter (along with pictures and comments that some consider funny).

    I might be headed in to Boston a few days before the event, is this open to everyone? :D

    Should we buy a transit pass?

  • punziepunzie Cookie Pimp Registered User regular
    Yes, it's open to anyone. You will likely want to buy a week pass for the t ($18 for unlimited for the week). More info on what to bring will show up within the next week.

    Mental note: Don't fill up at Qunicy this time.

    Had a lobster roll and chowder. Was way too full for Modern.

    The Sunset Grill and Tap on Brighton Ave in Allston? If that's the case, I might pop in for lunch with you guys and see where I go from there. I live a few blocks away.

    Yes. I need to add links into the OP schedule. It was too much of a pain to do on my tablet...

    I think it was my favorite part of the MMT last year. You'll be thankful you popped in!

    My husband and I are flying in Wed morning and plan to join up at some point along the way. We will definitely be there on Thursday.

    Gonna see if I can join up at Modern Pastry after I get in around noonish. I want in on some flakey goodness.

    Added a what to bring list to the OP. Other than cash, Charlie Ticket, and buttons, it should be common sense stuff.

    Edit: also added links to the schedule.

    Awesome. I've been to Sunset a couple of times and I remember it fondly. I went to law school with a guy who used to bar-tend there (not sure if he still does). See you Wednesday!

    Hope it's not too late to sign up. Dependant on how awake I feel after my flight on Wednesday, I might be able to come along to the Harpoon Brewery.

  • punziepunzie Cookie Pimp Registered User regular
    It's only too late when the MMT is over. Show where and when you want :)

    To people from warmer climates joining us on the MMT: Do bundle up, it's not supposed to get much warmer than 40 both days. Plus typical Boston wind! Consider yourselves double warned.

  • NickzillaNickzilla Nottingham, UKRegistered User regular
    urgh. You go halfway across the world and expect the weather to be nicer not worse. :(

  • JekhtJekht Registered User regular
    Sounds good! Flying from London on the Wednesday, so would love to join for the Thursday. Anything we need to do to sign up, or do we just show up and look for the group?

  • gigabraingigabrain Some guy...yknow New HampshireRegistered User regular
    I wonder if at Sunset they'll let me have everyone's beers count towards filling my tap tour card.

    Just show up. Look for a group of geeks with a light blue flag.

    So I'll be sure to wear a light jacket and pack some shorts just in case.

    Also, Boston is windy. It'll be especially so down at the Harpoon brewery because it's right on the ocean. Our forecast is crap tomorrow, then partly cloudy upper 30s-low 40s on Wednesday and Thursday.

    Exactly what I was getting at. You'll be fine.

    Good advice! Moreover people, consider the presence of snow banks when picking your footwear. We're getting snow this week too.

    i am staying near Stoney Brook - would it be okay if I met you at the SA Brewery on the Thursday? It is about 10 minutes walk from where I am staying : )

    I'm definitely in for the Sam Adams-ing (perhaps more!) on Thursday, and probably the Aquarium tomorrow - maybe more. Who knows, but I can't resist the pack of nerds (and their buttons) forever!

    Punzie, can you send a tweet (ergh, it still feels weird to type that) when you are around BU or Pleasant St? It'll probably take longer than 30 minutes to get from Aquarium to Harvard Ave. They have a terrible front-door-entrance-only policy for street-level stops on the green line now.

    I hope you all had a good time on the tour today. I'm a day behind schedule and I have my own stuff to do so won't make tomorrow's MMT either. I know I'll see some of you at the expo or the Westin. x

    Harpoon was delightful.
