Patron's

I had to change the date of this event (it is August 8th, same time) due to the weather... it's raining (heavily in some areas) and will continue through the night plus it is much cooler than it has been lately outside.

 

*** If anyone still wants to go to Patron's tonight to meet up... it will be nice to leave some sort of comment or send me an email/note through meetup.com!  I'll leave my house to meet any group members! :) ***

 

Let's meet up at Patron's (formerly known as Big City Pool Hall) in Allston. I have never been but from reviews (and photos) it looks like a really nice place to eat and MINGLE!

    I will be there! But how can i recognise the group?

    1 · August 8, 2013

    • D

      hi Nilay!
      thanks for RSVP Yes! to recognize us the best way is to look for a decent amount of people in a group who appear to not really know each other. you might notice a few ppl just standing around watching other people in the group talk, hand shakes, hugs and depending on what time you around a whole bunch of glass/bottles! OR you can keep looking at the comments and look at our pictures! :)

      1 · August 8, 2013

  • Drew

    I get it now, Des! For some reason I can only see comments that appeared before August...

    August 7, 2013

    • D

      hi Marcos!
      I'm with you on NO RAIN! but do not rush or worry. I'm sure there will be some of us still hanging around at... 8pm or even at 10pm. I'm telling you, last Patron's meetup (which was my first time there) we stayed until closing and it was lots of fun to meet and mingle with new people :)

      plus, i will be there around 6:30pm anyway (thanks to training and my commute). see you later Marcos!

      2 · August 8, 2013

    • Marcos

      Thanks for the understanding , Des!

      1 · August 8, 2013

    August 8, 2013

    Des, depending on what time I get back into Allston, I may still be there. I will text you :)

    1 · August 7, 2013

    What do we do or who do we ask for exactly upon meeting?

    July 31, 2013

    • Victoria r.

      Cool! Thanks Des!:) see you then :)

      1 · August 6, 2013

    • D

      please note I'll be there around 6:15-6:30pm due to a change in my work/training schedule!!

      and see you soon too Victoria :)

      1 · August 7, 2013

  • Drew

    This is still on tomorrow, right?

    August 7, 2013

    • D

      hi Drew!
      yes, it is... why wouldn't it be? don't tell me another rain storm is nearing!
      so, my plans have changed slightly due to work/training. I'll be taking the T from Dorchester/North Quincy to Allston/Patron's. I checked the commute in advance and should get there around 6:15-6:20pm. I'm NOT going to change the event to 6:30pm-10pm because of this hiccup BUT I'm letting you and everyone else know the estimated time I'll be there :)

      btw... my main pic is very recent so if you do spot me pls introduce yourself! I'll be looking at pictures from the meetup app and the people inside!!

    Hi Marco...Just show up and look for people who look.like their face shot and ask..."Are you from Meetup?"

    1 · July 31, 2013

    • D

      I like when "you" think you notice someone from their picture and ask... "are you from meetup?" and they have NO IDEA what you're talking about lol.

      August 1, 2013

  • Lauren

    Can't wait! I've heard about this place and want to try!!

    1 · July 31, 2013

  • Marcos

    Hey there, Im new here and have no idea what to do, but I'd like to come by and see what's all about it.

    July 31, 2013

    • D

      welcome Marcos :) ok so... you figured out how to comment which is really good! Try to RSVP: Yes (and add to your calendar which helps)

      it's perfectly fine that you're new to the group as I'm fairly new and others next Thurs will be too. Please remember to RSVP and see you on the 8th!

    I found out today that I have to travel today to NJ and will not be able to make the meet up this evening. I hope everyone has a great time and I hope my work/travel plans do not interfere next time. -Brian

    1 · July 25, 2013

    • D

      can you please update your RSVP? unless you might be able to make it after all?? I'm sure there will be another event like this planned. Send any ideas on places you'd like us to try as a group too! safe travels!

      July 25, 2013

  • D

    wow! this group is growing for RSVP'd! can't wait to meet you all! but i also do not know exactly how much space this place has for seating us (we might be at two separate tables?) and... closer to the date I might just provide my cell # or post a comment on specific clothes I will be wearing (it might be the top in my photo to make things way easier).

    will keep you all posted! :)

    July 23, 2013

  • D

    yay! thank you Alissa, John and especially Stephen for jump starting this meetup suggestion! I look forward to meeting all of you this upcoming Thursday! :)
