February Boston meet up?

So, I'm going to be in Boston Feb. 14-18 for a science conference and will have quite a bit of time to kill (don't have a whole lot of conference duties except to present a poster that Saturday) and would totally love to meet up w/ VegWeb folks for a lunch or dinner if anyone is around. Also, I'll be going to the conference w/ all omnis and would love to check out vegan restaurants/hang out w/ cool vegans in the area since there will likely not be any vegan food at the conference (I went last year and yuck  :P ).

If anyone's up for it, post here. If not, no biggie, but I thought I'd give it a whirl!

Hey, I would totally be up for having a meal while you're here in Feb. I'm sure Dink  and JW502 would be up for it as well (it's ok, they've authorized me to plan their social lives  ;D ) When it gets closer to time for your trip, post again and we'll work something out! Do you know where you'll be staying?

I think we're staying at the Sheraton Boston on Dalton St.? If not there, we'll be at a hotel near there because that's where the convention is at.

i've totally been at that sheraton before!!

cammy and i are talking about coming out. for we *heart* our boston friennds  :iloveyou: :iloveyou:

if you want to save some $$$ on a room, check the holiday inn express. i stayed in boston for a conference two years ago and got a double for $80 a night and they have(had) a shuttle that went to several of the touristy areas, including the sheraton and whatnot. granted, it was a couple years ago, but it would be worth if if you're not getting funding for the trip and have to pay out of pocket. i had to book online for that rate and also a bit in advance. it also had free breakfast, which for us veggheads usually means fruit  ;) but i love fruit! there is also a TJ right near the sheraton, so all food hope is not lost for a quick snack!

Thanks for the tips, BP! The university is paying for everything, so I don't have to worry about hotel costs.  Although, I wish they would just say you have X dollars to spend on a room; whatever you don't spend you can keep b/c I don't need to stay at a fancy pants hotel, but whatever.  ::) I'm glad there is a TJ's there--that's exciting! I can at least get breakfast and lunch foods to munch on.

Yay! I hope we can all meet up!

Okay, now I'm totally jealous. How can the Boston/Albany webbers meet without the rest of the bookfamily?  :'( I'll just have to live vicariously again (the story of my life). But...you can be sure bookpapa and I will be getting all the dirt from CeltKat when it's over.  :w00t!:

Say, baypuppy and dinkfeet, who is ahead in meeting the most vegwebbers? (Not to get something started or anything.  ;) )

Bookmama - you're such a trouble maker! To be honest, I think BP and I are tied for notches.

kbuettne - you're so awesome to kick-start another vegweb-a-gather. I vote we try out the new raw vegan place in Boston's Little Italy: The North End. Is Friday or Saturday better for you?

Man, if I didnt already have a NJ trip planned for the weekend before I would totally be all over this.  Unfortunately with that trip our non-house savings is gone.  :(

Drats.  Take pictures and ship us goodies!  :D

Grezzo looks sweet! .. If I didn't have to get ready for a conference the following week in California I'd totally make the drive from western MA..

have fun and do report back on the eats! I've been looking forward to someplace new to go instead of veggie-planet-all-the-time.

Um - isn't Peter Pan the best place to "get ready for a conference?"  ;)

Haha - yes, an excellent point.  Besides my intense hatred of the entire PP empire, I don't do so good with the reading and being productive on buses.  It's like I'm still 7 with the motion sickness and whatnot.  hmmm.  If I get access to a car and get my junk together, I might think about it.  :)

 You Bostonians should remember to always take out of town guests to Boston Beer Works across the street from Fenway Park. I don't think they have any vegan food there but who cares? They have frosty cold pitchers of Kenmore Kolsch (drool) and Back Bay IPA. When you're done it's a short stumble to the T station in Kenmore Square.

People's Republik in Cambridge!

I once saw a guy drink beer from a prosthetic leg there.

I'm serious.

nuchita- conferences are never an excuse! i have one in NYC the following weekend. see me complaining? if you're "new england" is between albany and boston, cams and i (if we trek out) can likely nab ya. same for lucidanne, if she's good to go.

as for meet ups, i'm at 9 i think. i keep intending to hunt down foofie, but my sched got crazy the last time we talked about it. i do know him and cammy like to eat at the same place in albany. i wonder if they ever "ran into" each other but didn't know?

i also live with a vegwebber. i dont' count her though. i wonder what the "counting" rules are?

Ooo! That sounds like a fun place! Friday would likely be better for me because Saturday is the last night of the conference and I will likely have "duties" to tend to. Woohoo! I'm excited!

if we do a friday, it would have to be later if cams and i come b/c we have work  :'( more like 730 or 8. i can't remember when he is out of work (5 i think) and it takes us a couple hours to travel.
