How to find Lobby 13: It is an entrance lobby of Building 13 accessible from the main gate of MIT at 77 Mass Ave. Go to the main entrance lobby of MIT and walk straight through the corridor under a clock for about 5 min until you see the sign for Building 13. There are other ways but this is the easiest way, I think. If you get lost ask for the entrance lobby for Building 13.

MIT 77 Mass Ave is about a 10 min walk from Central Sq or Kendal Red Line stations. Street parking is free on Sunday if you can find a spot along Mass Ave, Main St and other side streets.

    I learned a lot about Turkish culture and met fascinating people, this is a great event. Andrew and Dinesh were there to greet everybody so no one was left wandering and wondering where the event was.
    It was nice meeting everyone, hope to see everyone at another event soon!

    The meetup was good in that the organizers organized us for the MIT Turkish Student Association. By their own admission (TSA), Turkish culture is not an on-time one and so not much was set up when we got there. But it allowed us time to get to know some of the members of this meetup and that was good. Kudos to Andrew and Dinesh for meeting us, getting us organized and seated and out of the way of the TSA while they set up. The 3 star concept is not for the meetup and the organizers, it's for the TSA and their lack thereof. Still it was good for us all.

    This was good one. I particularly enjoyed the discourse on the differences between Turkish and Western music ... and the company :)

    it was a good event-met interesting and interested folks. The lecture on Turkish music was too rarified for me, and , also, I could barely hear him; but the music was fascinating, and would have liked more info about the content of the songs. The food after was tasty..a little disorganized when the event started. The various hosts, though, were very pleasant and accommodating people.

  • Ryan I.

    The address is 77 Mass ave or 105 mass ave ?

    March 7, 2013

    • Mariko

      105 Mass Ave. automatically popped up in meetup website but 77 Mass ave is better, so I will change it to 77 Mass Ave. MIT is a huge complex and this particular Building 13 is not too difficult to find from the main entrance. Have a good time there.
