January Social Meetup 2014

Come out and meet and mingle with other Boston Science Fiction and Fantasy fans at our monthly Social Meetup! We meet for food, drinks, games, and excellent companionship. We'll be at M.J. O'Connor's (the Park Plaza location). They are reserving their entire 150 person back room exclusively for us! I'll bring some board games along. 

 

More about M.J. O'Connor's here: http://back-bay.mjoconnors.com/

 

Please keep in mind that there are a couple of M.J. O'Connor locations, we'll be at the Park Plaza location at 27 Columbus Ave. in Boston

 

LOGISTICS:

* There is no theme or agenda, just people talking about Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and geeky things that we like (and dislike). If you can't come on time, that's fine, we usually have a large group until 8:00 PM. M.J. O'Connors is open until 2am if you want to stay extra late, but they may ask to move to the main bar around 10pm. 

* If you have SciFi/Fantasy Books or DVDs that you don't want anymore, feel free to bring them to the meetup and give them away (no sales, please). Be sure to take home anything that isn't claimed before you leave!

* There is no charge for this meetup, but the restaurant that hosts us greatly appreciates your business (and doesn't charge us a room rental fee), so please come hungry (or at least buy a drink). Also, please don't forget to pay your bill before you leave!


TRAVEL:

It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the Park Street T stop (Red and green) and a five minute walk from either Arlington and the Boylston stops on the green line

There are pay parking lots around. For example, the Motor Mart Garage (motormartgarage.com) which is just around the block and is $10 for up to 3 hours, if you come in after 5pm.

Here is a map to the location.

There are some metered parking spots for the those willing to drive around and be patient, but only a few.

Update: If anyone wants to see a few pics of the space (which is all for us!) go here: http://www.meetup.com/boston-scifi/photos/15860992/

    Did anyone see my bag there at the end? It was a plastic bag with some misc. toiletries in it.

      I think, in fact, it kept me there later! (The thought of going back outside kept me there!)

    I had a great time! Talked myself hoarse, which I'm taking as a positive for the conversations.

    Leaving the house today is going to on par with an arctic expedition.

      Caitlin, you're only saying that because you know you're small enough to be safe from anyone cutting you open to stay warm. ;)

    Anyone know if there's a reasonably priced parking garage near this venue? I don't feel like taking the mbta tonite with the weather so darn cold! Thanks

    January 7, 2014

    • Maria

      The cheapest option is street parking. You only need to pay until 8pm. 25 cents for 12 minutes. If you decide to part on the street, make sure it's not in a spot designated residential after 5:00pm. The description says that the Motor Mart is $10 for up to 3 hours. I think the 2nd cheapest garage is the one under the Boston Common (it's not far, but not a fun walk on a cold night). There is also an outdoor lot on Arlington Street.

    Unfortunate events has pushed back my first visit.

    Do you guys ever have this same meetup (at same location, same subject matter) on nights other than Mondays (I have work conflicts on some nights)? Do you ever schedule for Wednesdays, Thursdays? Thanks!

    I suggest finding a different location given that their credit card processing system has been compromised.

    December 28, 2013

    • Erik N.

      My credit card had some fraudulent charges on it yesterday. Could this be a result of that?

      It's possible, but I think any business could be vulnerable. It's an ongoing arms race between the security people and the thieves, and lately the thieves have had some victories.
