Boston dinner mini-meet, November 5th

DeeDee twisted my arm into trying to arrange a dinner get together for the Boston area people, so I suppose I should start a thread on it...

So... yeah... Dinner, Boston... Saturday, Nov. 5th.

Anyone have suggestions about restaurants? I can throw out Sunset Grill and Taps in Allston as a starting point.

Edit: Restaurant will be Vinny T's at 7pm. Read DeeDee's post below for address.

So, who is in?

Definites:
sschwart
DeeDee
ellinj
Mike2001
megazone
simonalope
TreborPugly
Breacagan (+1?)
trojanrabbit +1
SeanC

Maybe:
Hank
dirtypacman
pigonthewing
moebius
mbklein
Innundated

Vinny T's has been suggested as well as a site. I'm good with either, so I guess it's a matter of whether people prefer a pub/American food or Italian.

Steve put me as a definite. If you can come to NY I can go to Boston. Besides that I do have family in the Worcester area that I need to to see also.

How about Vinny T's in Brookline on Beacon Street. I know they take reservations.

P.S. I'll be there!

I'll probably be in town the next weekend.

I'd go with Joe's American Bar and Grill on Newbury Street. Mmm.

We might be able to do something that weekend as well, but I'm a vegetarian, so Joe's is not the best of restaurants for me.

Not that I don't want to see all of our Boston-area members, but I do want to spend time with my longer-time friends while I'm in town. That's the point of the trip after all. So don't necessarily change your plans for me. If the previous weekend works better for all of you, then stick with that one.

Umm, because I'll be in town the next weekend? I guess I don't make any sense.

Well I'm intrigued. Depending on the time and location I'll make a decision.

I'm interested, if I can find another $39 fare (AirTran does here to Boston, too), and if I'm not otherwise occupied with travel in the rest of the country.

I suggested Vinny T's because it has the option of ordering family style, vegetarian plates, and can accomidatie a larger group (although, it looks like our group won't be too large).

Once we get a better headcount I can call for a reservation (around 7ish) if this is okay with the group!

There's nothing wrong with Vinny T's, though I've had trouble with them and large (10+) parties before. Since we appear to be a smaller group, I think Vinny's will be fine. I'll probably pimp Sunset (which I think is a great place) for the meet in '06.

And 7pm for dinner sounds ideal too.

I'm still a definate maybe.... but in any case, Vinny-T's would be great (esp. the Brookline location).

I, too, have family in Boston. If I can crash there (and I imagine I can), I'll make it to this dinner. Don't put me down as a definite until I check though.
