Annual Holiday Party

I'm reviving an old tradition and having my Annual Holiday Party.  Thanks to Biaggio for reminding me early enough to schedule it.  The party will be at my house in Acton, MA.  It's going to be a pot luck so post what you will be bringing with your RSVP (appetizer, main, desert, beer, wine, etc.)

Be prepared to share a favorite holiday tradition from the country you come from.  There will be holiday music, so we might even have a sing a long for those interested!

The commuter rail does come to Acton and I can pick people up from the station.  You can also arrange among yourselves to car pool.  If you need a ride or are able to give a ride, post a comment in the event page, saying where you are coming from and if you need or can give a ride.

There will also be a $2.00 fee to help pay  for the meetup site, unless you've already paid you annual fee online.

I'll send more details out in December.  Buona Festa!

      Ironman, Marina, did you get a ride with Noelle? I didn't see the messages. I guess I will have to pass this time. Have fun everyone!

      Tianyu, cannot fathom if Karina made it along with Adriana et ux. Am standing by at Porter Square feasting on a bowl of hot chili, hoping to have heard from Karina or Adriana. Does not look promising. Irony abounds. Tried to hire friends to give me a ride, but none rose to the enticements.Allan PS Thank you Noelle for putting this together.

    Unfortunately, I, too, had to cancel. The snow is fierce at the moment. Thank you, Noelle, for organizing this event, and I hope to be able to meet everyone at a future event. Have a lovely and safe evening. Laurie

    I'm sorry Noelle,
    With the upcoming snow... I'm not worried about the drive there but the return journey is a concern. I'm afraid that I'm going to have to cancel but would love to come to any future party.
    Happy Christmas everyone!

    Hi Noelle,

    Hi Noelle,

    Thank-you very much for hosting. I wouldn't be able to come to the party until 8pm because I'm also attending an afternoon holiday party on the same day. (Popular date the 14th) Is that alright with you? I don't want to be rude.

    1 · November 23, 2013

    • Noelle

      I know the 14th is a popular date. 8pm is fine. Get here when you can.

    Hi, I will be bringing tzitziki, the Greek yogurt/garlic appetizer. I will be coming from Dedham. Can I carpool with others at a convenient location?

    I don't know if my post at RSVP appeared but I can write here again: I am excited to come; hopefully my husband will accept to join me and both have a great experience meeting friendly/sharing people, not just curious folks only asking questions and not feeling to say anything about themselves.
    I will bake rottolline siciliane as appetizers and perhaps smtg more, at the last moment inspiration.

    1 · November 17, 2013

  • Mila

    It would be great! I will bring salad (and maybe something else) which in Russia was called "Olivier" and was kind of obligatory feast meal in my childhood.
    Looking forward to seeing you,
    Best, Mila :)
