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 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.

    I had a great time Friday night and look forward to the next. Also nice to learn about other meetups from actual participants!

    Good fun, good conversation, good time!

    Thank you Bill!

    I was disappointed to put it nicely. I was with my friend. Recognized two people from another meetup. It was difficult to know who was with meetups. We approached several people with cold responses.
    I would most likely never attend another Friday night meetup.
    The museum was the only saving grace.

    Thanks Ron for the clarification of admission. I have not been in awhile and this is helpful to know that possibly you can get in after the big clutch of early birds. What's the age group these days that goes?

    September 6, 2013

    • Ron R.

      it runs the whole gamut of ages.

      September 6, 2013

  • Diana S.

    I have 2 membership cards, which means I can get 3 other people and myself in. I'll put a pic on this profile so you can find me, or send me suggestions on how to meet you.

    • Blue E.

      Hi Diana...Would also like to use one of your extra ticket as well...if that is still possible...let me know...Thanks Beverly

      September 6, 2013

    • Blue E.

      ahhh...it looks I will not make it...Thanks

      September 6, 2013

  • Ron R.

    Just to clarify, there are two tickets needed for this event. One is admission to the museum. The second is for the First Friday event. The event frequently fills up, and they do turn people away. If they do turn you away, walk around the museum for a while, come back in a half hour, and sometimes there's room for more people then. If you are a MFA member, and you should be if you attend this event more than twice per year, you can get a ticket for this event online at www.mfa.org -- that will guarantee you get into the event. See you tonight (I'll be late).

    I will not be able to attend tonight so someone can have my ticket which will be at the hold counter. Call me if you need to more info Claire Sweeney[masked]

  • Barry

    Just curious....are folks actually wearing disco outfits....any suggestions if you don't have a white suit? Would white pants be tacky? LOL

    September 6, 2013

    • Ron R.

      Last month people tried to wear 60's outfits, not everyone has them. No, I think white pants would be in keeping with the theme and would show great enthusiasm.

      September 6, 2013

  • Elaine

    I had hoped to attend but I'm not feeling well. Sorry to miss this time.

    September 6, 2013

  • Melinda

    Would be wonderful if someone has an extra entry for me. Thanks!

    September 6, 2013

  • Harriet

    to get a ticket online you need to login to your MFA membership account and then there is a link for ticket for members.

    September 6, 2013

  • Margie

    I am not able to attend this event tonight. My daughter is sick and it is not a good time for me to come into the city. Sorry...catch you next time.

    September 6, 2013

  • Steve G

    I will try to get there a little early. If anyone has an extra ticket I would greatly appreciate it.

    September 6, 2013

  • Ron R.

    If you're late, the gathering spot is to the left of where you enter -- grab a few tables on between the entry and the elevator shaft. I won't be there early, but if you'd like to bring some meetup signs (available under the file section of this page) you can put them on the tables.

    I secured a pass from my local library and it covers two people with a $10 admission...hope that is acceptable.

      Hi Margie, thanks, sounds good.

      September 4, 2013

      Hi Margie! If I.can use.yr.pass too, I'll split the $10 with u! Thanks!

    I have been to mfa events before and enjoyed them.

    September 4, 2013

  • Ron R.

    Ok, I wasn't imagining it:

    Friday, September 6: White After Labor Day - Disco Fever Throw covention aside and come decked out in your finest summer white, while Resident DJ Denise LaCarubba plays all your favorite Disco throwbacks!

    September 4, 2013

    • Ron R.

      I'll be there, but I'll be late. I don't know if I have any white trousers, certainly no white leisure suits. I did grow up only a few miles from where John Travolta grew up, does that qualify me?

      1 · September 4, 2013

  • Maggie

    The MFA site says this is Disco night. Is anyone wearing Disco garb?
    ;-) Might have to break out the platforms! LOL

    September 3, 2013

    • Ron R.

      they said something about "wear white after Labor Day," too.

    I do not have a membership but should be able to get passes through library. Will that work?

    September 2, 2013

    If you are a member of the MFA, please get your tickets for the event online. Attendance is limited, and the last few months people have been turned away. there is a separate admission ticket for this event, it is free, but it is still a ticket.
