I guess technically it could be named for the one in France

The place was certainly Big, even if the trivia wasn't too Easy--let's give Orleans another try.

Board games at the Blue Shirt Cafe

The last time we met to play board games went well. Let's ring in the new year with a session at the Blue Shirt Cafe on Sunday, January 22nd, from 2:00 to whenever we want to leave. People can bring their own games of whatever genre and difficulty they like. If people would prefer to meet at a different time or date, I'm sure we can work something out. [more inside]

Board games at the Blue Shirt

It's been a while since we had a board game meetup in this area, so let's see whether there's interest in a new one. One of us could host it, or we could meet at a restaurant such as the Blue Shirt Cafe on Davis Square or a conveniently large Panera Bread like the one near Fenway Park. Based on past meetups, Knight Moves seems to have been a bust. A weekend, which would allow for the most play time, would probably be best. When and where sounds best to you all? EDIT:Let's meet at the Blue Shirt Cafe on Davis Square at 2:00 on Sunday, October 30th! Feel free to bring any game or games you'd like to play.

An Evening with Grant Hart

I booked a show for Grant Hart at the Davis Square Theatre in Somerville, MA this evening. Grant will be performing a solo acoustic show, and Brad San Martin of One Happy Island will open. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. 21+. I know Husker Du has a posse on MeFi and it would be great to see some MeFites there.
