Hey, so I get that we're all traveling two blocks from my house to meet in a park that's too small to hold we seething geeky masses, but does anyone want to add something more? I for one am looking to push my favorite chocolate shop in harvard square, LA Burdick, on fellow chocolate lovers (though, she's a bit pricey, but the hot chocolate is reasonably priced and FAN-freakin-delcioius) Anyone else have other idea (or interested in Burdick?)

Drop by MIT campus? Of course, it's likely that a large proportion of meet attendees will be students (including me), but it might be interesting to non-students.

I second the chocolate cafe in Harvard Square. That place is amazing. I've been there twice. Although it's quite a cramped space; surely only a few of us would be able to go/fit.

What about hanging out in the Stata Center or something? I love that building.
And on the subject of MIT, the LSC group shows movies every weekend in a large lecture hall; anyone interested in seeing whatever they're showing that weekend? It's $3 admission. Quite good for the price.

I'll try to think of more things to do. Perhaps even some things on the Boston side of the river, too.

I did a search via Ticket master on the greater Boston area and theres nothing good around that time.

There is a candle-pin bowling alley(candle pin-bowling alley?) in Davis sq. about 10 minutes from the park that is a throwback to sometime much older than me. Davis Sq also features some good BBQ for someplace so far north.

I don't know who is playing at the Middle East, but generally speaking that's where you'd be going to see bands play. It's 3 T stops away from the park location. It's really 4 clubs, so you probably should find something you like.

The Brattle Theatre, Kendall Sq Cinema, and Coolidge Corner Theatre(my fav of the 3) all have interesting/independent movies showing. If we have picked a lucky weekend, it might be a Bugs Bunny night at Brattle.

There are so many bars that it's not even worth qualifying until you narrowed down where the hotel location is.

I love LSC! Don't forget kids, when the projector or audio fails (and it always does) take the cue when someone shouts "LSC!" you shout "SUCKS!"

Also some great restaurants for Indian and Tibetan. I like Namaskar and the Tibetan place right across from it.

Don't forget the Somerville theatre, right in Davis square. But if we do Brattle, maybe we'll be lucky enough to get a big screen showing of The Princess Bride. Big enough following maybe we could request it! :-D

If we got an xkcd showing of the Princess Bride, I think there could be some fatalities due to happiness. Best comic related gathering ever. Just moreso with Princess Bride.

Perhaps I should post something about the Princess Bride idea in General where more people will notice it? See who'd be interested.

A big-screen showing of The Princess Bride would be wonderful.

Another option (for those of us over 21) could be a Sam Adams brewery tour, including free beer at the end! Well, under 21 can still attend, just no free beer. Info here: http://www.samueladams.com/contact_tour.aspx

I worked for them (their paper office) for a little while. There was a beer cooler, you could drink after four. They trusted me organizing important legal documents with cream stout. :-P SOOOO good!

I'd be up for the tour.

And Harpoon's is the actually brewery. Surprise! The Sam Adams in JP is just a quality test and R&D site.

... Still good though, don't get me wrong. But Harpoon is going to be WAY easier.

For godsake solar, you're 7 years old! You'll need atleast two friends from school to be allowed in to the tasting room.

maybe a signed permission slip? the Harpoon brewery sounds like fun in all seriousness though.

edit: if they have sufficiently raptor proofed the premises though.

Cristo's 7-Star Pizza in Davis Square does a fantastic gyros. They also have baklava in the cooler. Pizza there's alright if you like Greek style pizza.

Redbones was already mentioned but deserves being mentioned again and again and again. I love the pulled pork sandwich and the hot sauce, which is not skull-and-crossbones hot but has incredible flavor. Not to mention homemade pecan pie.

Angelina's in Teele Square has the best subs in a ten mile radius. Not so sure about their pizza, I wasn't wild about it ten years ago and since then I've stuck to the subs. Teele is down the street from Davis, about a ten minute walk.

Avoid Mike's in the middle of Davis like the plague. I don't know how they stay open—oh wait, yes I do; inertia and beer. If you must go, I've heard the mussels are edible. Or were, half a dozen years ago, the last time I heard anyone say anything good about the place.

Anna's Taqueria is good for a fat, fast, cheap, greasy, completely satisfying quesadilla. A lot of people seem to love the rest of their menu but I dunno, I don't think I'll ever get over the fact that they effectively killed off Picante's. Salsa bar, why have you forsaken me?

Diva is great for Indian food but you might have to wait a while for a table during the dinner rush. I've only been to Namaskar once but I liked it. Haven't tried the Tibetan place.

If anyone is planning on buying stuff for the grill while they're in town, McKinnon's Meat Market in Davis is the place to go. Cheap and incredibly good quality meat and fish to be had there. Produce is sometimes iffy but it's better than at Farmer's Bounty across the street. Farmer's Bounty, on the other hand, has a lot of interesting stuff, like imported candy bars (fun until you realise you're just paying three times as much for something in a different wrapper), nan bread, lots of Indian grocery items.

I shouldn't have started thinking about places to eat after 2 am, this is inevitably what happens.

Namaskar is awesome, as is Marsta on Elm (that Tibetan place CatProximity mentioned). Second the Ana's nod. There's also right around there a fast Thai place, Benjapon's, which seems not horrifying and rather inexpensive, though not exalted.

I'll have to try Angelina's subs... you're right - their pizza is nothing thrilling. (Though I'm a born New Yorker, and, as such, a gigantic pizza snob.)

And you've left out the best bit - J.P. Licks. Woo ice cream.

J. P. Licks killed Denise's. That's right, I have just enough townie in me to shun an ice cream place from Jamaica Plain for having opened in the former location of an ice cream place in Somerville, years after the fact. Also I know some people who've worked there (at Davis and at the one in Coolidge Corner). They give 13-cent raises. What the fuck?

BUT... as there isn't really an acceptable substitue nearby since Someday Café closed down (moment of silence)... I will begrudge you your J. P. Licks. Their ice cream may be overpriced but it is tasty.

Martsa's AMAZING Tibetan. If you've never had Tibetan TRY IT!

yeah Mike's is BARELY food. BLECH!

Don't eat the tuna steak at Red Bones. I was in the bathroom (at home later) for about 2 hours (not kidding)

and Angelina's Philly steak had a similar effect on my housemate, only he kept being sick for days.

No kidding. My sweet tooth isn't what it used to be so I don't get a lot of ice cream anyway, (so my boycott would hurt them little) but that sucks.

Fully support every other suggestion though, particularly the Redbones. Diva is also an excellent choice and there's a lounge attached that seems more
60's sci-fi movie spaceship interior then anything else. A good place for overpriced (although very tasty) specialty martinis (they have beer too).

I've had excellent BBQ before but I've never had Tibetan food. It would be best for me if I could have a new and unique experience.

I've been to the Kendall Sq Cinema and it's a nice place. I don't know what they're going to be playing on that day, however.

Likely the girl and I will show up and she can play tour guide since she knows Boston better than I do. I'll have my Nintendo DS on me if anyone wants to trade Pokemon or something. I'd love to get some more contacts in my game . In addition I have MarioKart and Tetris DS.

I'm down for a museum visit, the only museum I've been to recently is the MFA in Boston.

The Brewery tour sounds pretty fun. Girlfriend and I are 23 and 22 respectively so it won't be a problem.

At any rate I'll let the forum regulars make the plans and I'll tag along with whatever goes on after that. I'll be the one wearing the brown Twisp & Catsby tee from the Penny Arcade store.

aleatoric music for the win! Although I'm not familiar with this piece, I'm all for it!

I don't know if this has been suggested, and I'm not even going, but you guys should go out for a walk in the morning at dawn. Like, all of you. That would be amazing.

You guys had better take some awesome pictures of this, as I cannot be there. I might be there if this is still going on in say.. 2 years or something.
