MFA First Friday

Let's meet out in the lobby in front at the main entrance at 6pm. near the statue of Orpheus and Cerberus (3 headed dog). Then we will head in at 6:10 to make sure we get in. We will congregate and get some tables to the left near the big cube with the Mario Testino Poster, which has the stairs and the elevator behind it.

Try not to be late, as it fills up quickly and then they stop letting people in. I am BIll, 6'4".

The cost of museum entry is $25, but if people  have dual memberships they can get others in for free, so if you have a dual let us know via meetup comments, or RSVP comment.

I will email my phone # before the event to attendees so if you miss us in the foyer you can call or text (preferred) if you can't find us when/if you get in.   Look at everyone's pictures so we know who is going.  I will try to bring a copy of the pictures and will keep an eye out to say hi & introduce people.

BE SURE TO GET THERE EARLY, AS THE PLACE FILLS UP AND THEY TURN PEOPLE AWAY.  You need a license or Mass ID to enter.

We can go out after for food or drinks at a convenient location, such as a restaurant on Huntuington Ave.

    Sorry some people who came late missed us. We waited out in the lobby an extra 15 minutes till 6:30. Our plan in the Meetup Instructions say: "We will congregate and get some tables to the left near the big cube with the Mario Testino Poster, which has the stairs and the elevator behind it." (Not sure if the poster is still there). We usually go in at 6:15 - then get tables near the elevator cube. - We did hang there for about an hour. Then people tend to walk around or dance but come back to the cube periodically. I will email out my phone next time. The music is so loud there that it is not easy to hear the phone and vibrate can be missed, so look at people's pictures also. I am 6'4".

    I also missed connecting outside but finally found some of the group. I am really glad that I went though. I like the idea of a better way to actually meet up. Maybe someone could grab a table and put a small table sign on it.

    I agree, I have gone to the last two. Maybe instead of meeting in the lobby the first few to arrive could save a few tables.

    Hello I arrived late as well but fortunately a couple of members found me -as I meandered the venue! I appreciate the idea of having a way to contact a vulture. I asked a few folks if they were or knew of CV but they didn't. I had a great time. So thank you to the organizers and all who participated.

    Hi--
    Nice MFA event, although I arrived a few minutes late and never found the Culture Vultures. I wonder if any thought has been given to name tags or having a cell phone contact number for future events so CV attendees can find one another.

    Hi, This will be my first time attending a function. I am here for six weeks of cancer treatment and alone in this city. I would appreciate if someone would have an extra ticket. I am taking the green line T. Is the T stop in the front where everyone will meet or do I need to walk around the other side. I look forward to tonite.

    I have a cold, but if I feel better and can attend, I can invite someone in as a guest on my museum card. If I don't make it, I wish you all a fun time!

    First time I'll be able to attend, looking forward to meeting all of you! Do local library free museum passes cover admission to this event? Dorrie

    March 31, 2013

    • Ron R.

      yes, they do. Admission to the event is free, but you must gain admission to the museum first.

      Wonderful! Thanks for the answer, Ron....I'll see everyone either way, free or via entry purchase. :-)

    Just moved here this week. I don't know what this event is about.... but I'm game... let's have a great time. What is this event about?

    1 · March 31, 2013

    • Ron R.

      it's kind of like a party. They take this big room and fill it with friendly people, a cash bar, a cash tapas bar, and a dj who plays music too loud. People talk to each other. Some dance. Others just hang around.

      1 · April 1, 2013

    • Ron R.

      If you get bored, you can just go into another part of the museum. It's pretty good.

      April 1, 2013

  • Ron R.

    members can reserve tickets for this event online, that will guarantee you can get in. The last few months they have had to turn people away.

    March 31, 2013

    • Ron R.

      just reserved mine.
