    I can't place where exactly it is in Union Sq. I checked the map but i'm 'challenged' that way ; (

      Sanborn Ct is a tiny private Rd off the Union Square plaza. Relish is right behind the Independent Bar/Restaurant and across from Journeyman and Backbar. Hope to see you there. I'll clarify in the event posting -- tickets are needed in advance. Follow the eventbrite link to buy a ticket or use the code

    Oy vey! I have another commitment that night, but I definitely want to visit Relish sometime. If you're ever near Jamaica Plain, call or stop by Agricultural Hall. Good luck!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
