Pizza

PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOUR ORGANIZATION IS INTERESTED IN SPONSORING A MEETING BY BUYING PIZZA IN EXCHANGE FOR A THANK YOU AND A BRIEF MENTION TO AUDIENCE OF CLOUD TECHNOLOGISTS AND (OCCASIONALLY) BUSINESS PEOPLE.

We strive to provide pizza at our events. This costs money. We don't have much.

We found a pizza place we like:

http://mycambridgepiz... (http://cambridgepizze..., http://mypizza.com/re...)
263 Brookline Street
Cambridge, MA 02139
617-547-4588

We have the pizza delivered to:

Microsoft Office
1 Memorial Drive
Cambridge, MA 02139

For a 6:00 PM meeting, we ask that the pizza be there around 5:55. Someone needs to be on hand to accept the pizza and sign for it (credit card receipt usually).

Here is how we figure out what to order:

E = # people eating
P = # pizzas ordered, calculated as P = ceil(E / 3) + 1

Example:
RSVP 30, assumed eating 23, 23/3=8+1=9

We usually divide our order approximately as follows:
Meat: P / 3 (e.g., pepperoni)
Vegetable: P / 3 (e.g, green peppers and onions)
Cheeseless: 1
Cheese: P - (P/2 + 1) (the rest)

We estimate # from the RSVPs, so it is important that this number is as accurate as possible!

When Ordering:

Please remember to ask for plates and napkins.

Usually it is best to give a cell phone number so the pizza delivery person can call when arriving on site.

Cost:

Assume one pizza is consumed by 3 people. Prices are on the menu.
Please remember the delivery and assume a $15 tip for delivery.

Timing:

We need to get the order placed 90 to 120 minutes before we want it on site.

(We also were using Kendall House Of Pizza, 201 3rd Street, CAMBRIDGE, MA 02141, 617-547-1790 - usually dealing with Jimmy - for a while. Trying another outfit for a while.)

--
Just for recordkeeping purposes: For St James St meeting (https://www.meetup.co...) we used this pizza place: http://www.romepizza.... - the pizza was good - the delivery was 20+ minutes late.
