MFA CLOSED - MEETUP SWITCHED TO JOHNNY D'S AT 7 to 7:30 START , & Davis Sq.

MFA CLOSED - MEETUP SWITCHED TO JOHNNY D'S AT 7 to 7:30 START

Thanks for the Johnny D's Suggestion.  It is free admission all night.  I checked the band music and the 3 bands sound very good to me - well worth the admission ($0)!  & a good variety.  Music starts at 7:30.   This is a one time free all night, not just at 10pm, so may be crowded - try to come early and get seats, especially anyone who gets there early.

If it gets so crowded that late comers can't get in, there are plenty of bars in Davis Sq - and maybe more space at JD's will open up later in the night.  Since it's freezing out, go over to the Crepes restaurant across street next to somerville theatre and call me[masked], to help organize logistics, let you know when space is available...   We could put an alternate bar on the meetup site so check that too. 

Also, see note below - a few people are going to Samba's Steak and Sushi on Rt. 9 East in Framingham at 6:30 for drinks, apps, and dancing...   

Johnny D's:

Brothers Rye - Outlaw Country Americana Bluegrass Jugband - upbeat folk bluegrass with banjo, standup bass
Music @ 7:30pm with

SO SOL - kind of melancholy Spanish music some of it sung in spanish
&
NO STRANGER - modern good singer songwriter type - nice vocals/ music/ songs/

Latin Americana / Folk / Indie / Rock / Love

      what's playing there?

      January 3, 2014

  • Jean A.

    Interested in attending in February...What do I need to do if I have a museum pass from my local library? I am guessing that the library pass will cover basic (discounted) admission but that there is a surcharge. Do I pay both when I arrive at the museum or do I need to reserve/pay in advance? Thanks for the guidance!

    January 2, 2014

    • Jean A.

      Thank you, Ron. Fingers crossed that there will be no snow in February!

      January 3, 2014

    • Ron R.

      oh, there will be snow in February, that's a guarantee, but it's less likely we'll have a snowstorm the day of.

      January 3, 2014

  • Jimmy

    How about a backup plan any ideas?

    January 3, 2014

    • Ron R.

      we've got lots of partie supplies left over from the two New Year's parties.

  • Meri

    This is a heads up. It is possible, due to the storm, that I might not be plowed out in time to go on friday night. I'm writing this now in case I lose electricity or there is some kind of emergency. I will do my best, Christina, to show up and share my membership with you, but please forgive me if I don't get there.
