1960 Beacon Street, Boston, MA
• Penguins-Bruins Game: Cityside will have the 7:30pm game on all the TVs.
• Free Raffle for Wigle Whiskey gear is on. We’ll be giving away a bottle of their delicious Pennsylvania Wheat Whiskey, as well as two packages of Wigle bitters (for the home bartender), and ten Wigle t-shirts. It’s all free, you just need to provide us with your name and email on the raffle ticket.
• Free Appetizers: Your fearless leaders and the Cityside crew are all chipping in to provide appetizer samplers for the group. Thanks also to those who have made donations this year via the Meetup.com site, especially Collin.
• Free Wigle Samples: As always this season, we’ll have free Wigle samples to whet your whistle.
• Donations to Charity: Given that there are a few free things at this event, and in keeping with the holiday spirit, we'd encourage attendees to make a charitable donation. Tim Hartnett has lined up Cradles to Crayons and the Lemieux Foundation. We will pass a hat around for cash donations as well as provide info and forms for folks who prefer to donate via check or credit card directly to one or both groups. With the cash we’ll make a group “Yinz in Boston” donation to the two charities. Additional info below if you'd like to check out the charities ahead of time.
1. Cradles to Crayons, a highly respected Brighton-based charity that provides children from birth to age 12, living in low- income and homeless situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. https://cradlestocrayons.org/
2. The Mario Lemieux Foundation, charity founded in 1993 by the Pittsburgh Penguins legend. The foundation's main goal is to supports cancer research but it also creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities. http://www.mariolemieux.org/
***************After a great turnout last year, we've decided to make a holiday gathering part of the annual Yinz in Boston calendar. Cityside has graciously offered to give us the upstairs bar for the night of Wednesday, December 14. We'll have the Penguins vs Bruins game on all the TVs and (free) light appetizers will be provided. We're also working out the details of a charity component, and will be doing free give-aways, including a bottle of Wigle, so stay tuned for more!
Whether you're at Cityside every Sunday or haven't been to a YIB meetup in years, we hope you can make it out to share a drink and few stories with the best crew of yinzers outside the Burgh.
