The The Mapparium is cool if you're in the area Newbury Street/Back Bay area.

Who you calling geeky?

Is there interest in doing something like this?

I've actually done the tour of Fenway before, and it was quite interesting. Fenway is a great ballpark, full of culture and history and stories. And it's one of my top 3 favorite ballparks (Wrigley, Yankee Stadium, Fenway).

I'm up for just about anything. So someone who doesn't live in the city and have the opportunity to see all of this any time he wants, pick something

You know, I'm shocked by the fact that DeeDee, with so few posts, has really taken a command position in planning this Meet. Reminds me of someone I know.

It sounds like the freedom trail is the way to go. I'm not sure how out of towners are getting into town, but the Freedom Trail starts at the Boston Common by the Park Street T-station. People can PM/email/call me if they need directions via T/Car/whatever. I'm also not sure what time people are getting into town, so Mike, you might want to tell me when you want us to meet for the tour... It can take anywhere from 90 minutes to 3-4 hours, depending on how far you want to go on the trail, and how long you spend at each of the sites... Not counting any stops for food.

And DeeDee, you have that awful hat on again We'll have to get you an avatar you're content to keep up this weekend

I don't consider you a newbie anymore

If people want me to put together a phone list, drop me a PM with your name, username, phone #, and email (so I can mail you the list), and I can get that out tomorrow.

And DeeDee, if you're late, just give me a call and I'll let you know where to catch up with us. There's plenty of T-stops on the trail.

I have my brother's number, but if you send me a PM with yours too I should be all set for Sat.

As much as we'd like to, my wife wouldn't be able to do anything involving a lot of walking, so we'll probably see you guys at the restaurant, or maybe meet at the end.

Steve, you have my number from the NYC meet so you can add me to the list if you make a phone list.

I can see it now:

"Hi Rachel (not her real name). I'd love to see you this Saturday... but I was planning on meeting up with a bunch of people I know from an online community of really cool geeky nerds (or is it nerdy geeks?), most of whom I've never actually met in person before. We're going to be doing some touristy Boston stuff during the day, and then have dinner that night. Would you mind spending your second date with me hanging out with them?"

<click>


Anyway, I assure you all, if things go well, I'll bring her to TC Con '06 (from this post to gods ears).

(I'm confused...which thread am I posting this in???)
