MIT museum 2nd friday - Nautical Night

Nautical Night

Come 'sea' the MIT Museum in a new way! Celebrate the 75th anniversary of the MIT Nautical Association and take a maritime tour of the Museum's new MIT 150 exhibition. Program will feature on-gallery conversations with Kurt Hasselbalch, Curator of the Hart Nautical Collections, and demonstrations of the latest marine technologies from local entrepreneurs and researchers.

5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

We can go out after this event, if people wish. Baraka, in Central Square, is one of my favorite restaurants, and I originally thought we might give it a try. But we'll likely be a pretty large group, too large for Baraka on a Friday night. So here's the backup plan:

Asgard

350 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02139
[masked]

We can go to the Andala Cafe if we're a medium-size group and people want to opt for much lighter fare (and no alchohol):

Andala Cafe in Central Square

286 Franklin Street (corner of Franklin and River Streets in Central Square)

Cambridge, MA 02139

    TheTyne tour guide was very enthusiastic and friendly, and I had a nice dinner afterwards at Cafe Andala afterwards.

    The museum was interesting. The tour of nautical exhibits was okay, not great. By far the best part of the evening was the dinner and conversation afterwards at Andala. Five stars each for Marianne and Eric and Meredith and Jeff!

    I enjoyed the nautical-themed tour. The meal at Andala Cafe after the event was delicious. Even though the parameters for attendance at this event were flexible, I still find it discouraging that so many people RSVP Yes and then don't show up.

    We'll go out *after* this event if people would like to do that. Choices are: Asgard, Andala Cafe, and Baraka. Asgard is the likely choice because it can handle large groups (large = four or more people on a Friday evening).

    Sounds good to me! Do you usually eat after or before?

    From any restaurant's point of view, "large" on a weekend night is any group larger than four people. No decision will be made on where to eat until the night of the event because so much can change in a week, a day, an hour. We have three restaurant options; we're covered. From my experience as an organizer, half of you won't attend the event, and half who do attend will go out to eat. That's seven or eight people: still a "large" crowd. So if you have to bet on this, bet on Asgard.
