The Boston Coffee Shop Meetup Group Pages

Intro
We are people who like intelligent conversation, witty banter, coffee, and the coffee shop atmosphere.

RSVPs, No-shows, and Crashers
This is not some large "mix and mingle" group. We meet in small venues with limited seating, so we place low caps on RSVPs. For this reason, we enforce our RVSP policy. If you RSVP, you are expected to attend. An RSVP of yes does NOT mean "maybe" or "that looks cool," it means "I will attend." Please observe our policy and only RSVP if you certainly will attend.

Similarly, please do not "crash" events if you did not make the list because your host will have to find space for unexpected attendees. If you repeatedly no-show or show up uninvited, you will be removed from the group, as inaccurate RSVP counts create hassles for our hosts and organizers.

FAQs
Q: Why do you cap RSVPs?
A: Because space is limited. We meet in small venues with limited space, so we need to know how many people to expect. If you RSVP and don't show up, it throws off our numbers and makes us look bad for reserving too much space.

Q: I didn't make the RSVP list, but I can come anyway, right?
A: Please don't. We have a cap for a reason. Space is limited. Please don't give your host an added hassle of dealing with unexpected guests.

Q: I'm not a member of the group (yet), but I can come anyway, right?
A: Please don't. We have a cap for a reason. Space is limited. Please don't give your host an added hassle of dealing with unexpected guests.

Q: Why don't you host an event at *insert venue name*?
A: Chances are because you haven't suggested it yet. smile

Q: Why don't you host an event at *insert time here*?
A: Because you haven't volunteered to host an event at that time and date yet. We host at times and places that are convenient to us. Want something that falls outside of that? Please feel free to suggest a meetup!

Event Types
Usually, we will just get together in a coffee shop or similar location. Sometimes, we may designate an event as one of the following:

Fresh Cup: These are for new members only, to give them a chance to meet and be greeted by one or two veteran hosts. If you've already attended a meetup with our group, please do not RSVP to one of these events unless specifically invited by the host.

Instant Cup: Short notice? Who cares? These are events that we'll post, usually if one or two hosts find themselves in a coffee shop with some space and say "hey! Let's invite the rest of the crew." Please be cool and don't complain that there was too little notice. We know. We don't care. It's a joke. Deal with it.
