June 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 will open up the room to the public at 9:00pm.

* 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/

    Another awesome night hanging out with interesting people talking about geeky things. Oh, and here's an episode of "Super Train" distilled into 3 minutes. http://youtu.be/4417N3qvnyk

    I am bringing a card game called "Slash." It is another entry in the "games that work like Apples to Apples/Cards Against Humanity" category, except this time we're making weird romantic pairings between characters. ;) If that sounds like fun to you, let's play.

    Hey guys,

    Was really looking forward to this. It would've been my first meetup with everyone but I got stuck at work. Hope the next one happens on a weekend.

    Wasn't sure I'd be free so did not RSVP... I assume it's ok to come late.

    I'm all moved into my new apartment in Somerville! I can be a person again! I managed to pop in with a small board game a couple months ago and had a blast, so I do believe I'll pop in again! :)

      And then I had to bail. Sorry, all - getting moved into a new apartment isn't easy. Soon. SOON!
