    I'm going to say "no" for this year. The chances f being able to drive to Boston, even tomorrow seem slim.

    maybe we can re-group for Sunday?

    February 7, 2013

  • Karen

    I've been looking at the weather forecasts and there's a very good chance I'll be cancelling this meetup. The forecast will be more accurate by tomorrow afternoon so please check back but I'm leaning toward cancelling it at this point.

    What's everyone thinking about the Nor'easter coming in Friday? Any changes to plans?

      No problem! I enjoy being involved. FYI, I just received a 'Blizzard warning' alert for Boston that goes until 1pm on Saturday. I'll still wait until later in the week and see if it changes, but if not, I will not be going.

      I couldn't make it for Saturday w/ this group, but I am going w/ a(nother) group on Sunday so if anyone ends up making changes let me know (I would be meeting you there; I believe our vanpool is full)

      February 6, 2013

  • Karen

    The weather forecast for Friday into Saturday isn't looking good. Given how inaccurate the predictions are, I'm not going to do anything right now. If it's snowing, considering the distance we have to drive, I will likely cancel this meetup. Of course you'd still be able to go on your own. Please check back here later in the week for updates.

      February 6, 2013

  • Belinda D.

    • Lori

      Hi Belinda, I live in West Hartford - was ging to carpool with Jeff but haven't heard back from him - trying to work it out so I can be in Northampton by 8:00 PM - would be most convenient to go there from the show but not sure that can work. In case you or anyone is interested in the show in Northampton:https://www.facebook.c...­

    I want to attend, although not sure if I'm on call this coming weekend.
    If not, I would rather carpool or take the bus. I have a long weekday commute so I don't mind sharing expenses. Anyone passing by the NL area?

    February 3, 2013

      Looks like the commuter lot would be better? Right off exit 77 of I395, correct?

      You're welcome. Let me wait until later in the week to set a time. Other people may see this and want to arrange a meeting place earlier along I95.

    Karen, if you think it's helpful, please update my carpool info to reflect I can meet people along I95 going towards New London.

    If I'm not working that day I'd like to go.

  • Havital

    I wish I knew about this earlier, I already have plans for that day

    February 3, 2013

  • Lori

    I want to attend; I live in West Hartford but prefer to pay someone for gas since my new Honda Civic is only getting 25 mpg

    Hi Karen, I am looking forward to the meet up and I will be meeting the group in Boston.

    February 1, 2013

  • Bill

    Turns out I will be in Providence, RI the night before. So I will stay there and meet you in Boston.

      Looks like there is a Craft Beer Pavillion as part of this show with over 20 breweries represented. They're selling tickets in advance to this. I know you're a beer lover, so just passing this along.

    away that weekend

    January 10, 2013

  • Lori

    Sounds good - keep me posted!

    December 25, 2012

  • Karen

    I think carpools are the way to go. We'll coordinate once we're a little closer to the date so everyone will have a better idea of their availability. I also noticed that MegaBus has a really cheap fare between Hartford and Boston that we might be able to take advantage of. I'm not sure where they drop off in Boston but will do some research.

    I'll be there and I can drive if we need another carpool. I'm coming from West Haven, but we could arrange a meeting spot wherever convenient along 91. Honda Accord will fit 3-4 besides me
