Meetup Description: Join us at a Pre-Tour Brunch at Z Square in Cambridge, before the tour of "The Longfellow House" . I'll have to made a reservation for 15 -20 people. If plans change, and you can't make it, please change the RSVP to "No" so people on the wait list can get on.

From the site:

"Caf?, Restaurant, Bar and Lounge, Z Square Cambridge is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Chef Scott Robertson is at the helm of our flagship restaurant in the heart of Harvard Square. Featuring a creative menu of American cuisine and ever changing innovative specials. Drop by our caf? for a fresh healthy meal to stay or go, relax on our outdoor patio with cocktails and small bites, or head downstairs for full service dining".

Location: 14 JFK Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
Contact Info:[masked] [address removed]
Hours: Monday-Saturday 8am-1am; Sunday: 8am-10pm

Reviews are mixed regarding their brunch, mostly how the high price doesn't make it a good value, and the service can be slow, but it's right around the corner from where we need to be at 12:30 pm. And they take reservations. We all went there before A Christmas Story, and thought the food was good, if a bit pricey for breakfast food.

Where to meet:
T.J. Maher will be waiting inside where they seat you from 10:00 am to 10:30 am. From what I recall you go through the front entrance, around the corner inside and down the stairs to the podium? T.J. is 5 foot 7, with short brown hair, blue eyes, a red MEETUP sign on his black messenger bag, and a "Hello My Name is T.J." nametag. We should be outside the Longfellow House by 12:30 pm to greet the others going on the 1:00 pm Longfellow House tour with us. I'd say ... we need to leave the restaurant at 12:10 pm?

If you are going to be parking in University Park Parking Garage:

Take Route I-93 to Storrow Drive and follow signs to Cambridge. Turn off at the Harvard Square exit. Turn right onto John F. Kennedy Street and cross the Charles River and Memorial Drive.Turn left onto Eliot Street, and left again onto Bennett Street. Continue past the Charles Hotel (on left), then turn left onto University Road; the entrance to University Place parking garage will be on your immediate right.

University Place Parking Garage is at "Enter after 5:00PM Mon-Fri / All day on weekends, 0 to 1 hour $4.00, 1+ Hours $8.00 flat fee with validation, $12.00 flat fee without validation" ... so it will be $12.00 for the day. With the MBTA now charging $7.00 a day this isn't that much of a difference.
