    Thank you for canceling Ann. I know you were looking out for everyone's safety and that is greatly appreciated. Also, I really didn't want to miss this meeting.

    I was glad it was cancelled on two accounts. Firstly,the roads were terrible in Worcester county and we got stuck twice trying to get to a Conservation Committee meeting, and secondly (selfishly) I really didn't want to miss this presentation. Looking forward to Juliet's great topic presentation.next time.

    Well my phone died didn't have it all day so never got the email (was still a good call), so me and my wife went anyway and had the whole restaurant to ourselves. So we sat and had a great meal anyway. With that being said thanks for the invite and looking forward to meeting with everyone.

      Oh, no! Well, for future reference, we always post any cancellation on the webpage and the meetup event posting as well, so if you can have someone get internet access for you then you can check before you drive when we have bad weather. I'm so sorry you drove in that weather, but I'm glad you enjoyed dinner. Buca has great food, and the chicken marsala is my favorite. We have another event next week in Waltham, or see you next month in Worcester.

    OF COURSE!!!! It stopped snowing!! Whaaaaaa

    February 18, 2014

    • Ann B.

      Well, it's still snowing hard where I am. Almost a foot on the ground. Regardless, the drive for the speaker, restaurant workers, Audio Visual guy, and Black Diamond partners was going to be in mid afternoon in the worst of it, and we had to make the call. There was also no way to know if it would stop when they predicted. So there it is. :-( Don't worry, we'll have this same speaker on another date, everyone was looking forward to this topic!
