Hey peeps! The onslaught of turkey-themed holidays is nearly upon us, but before that: a November meetup!

When: Sunday, November 18th, 2018, 10 am

Where: Harvard Art Museum Cafe

32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

The closest T stop is Harvard, on the red line. The museum is about a ten-minute walk across the Harvard yard from the station.

Venue: The cafe is located in the atrium of the art museum. You do not have to pay the entrance fee to sit in the cafe area. The cafe has a small selection of pastries and other snacks, but if you have specific dietary requirements you may need to bring your own food. The building is accessible via a ramp on Prescott Street.

How to find us: I will claim a table and set up a paper sign. I will have my knitting and/or a painting project. I have made MANY copies of coloring sheets, so you, too, can color a historic Boston monument or Parisian scene!

What to bring: Crayons, paints, coloring sheets, a puzzle, a delicate sense of hope, strong opinions about What Ingredients Are Allowed In Stuffing.

If you need more information, you can inquire on the “Boston” thread at FOCA.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

NUMBER ELEVEN. We are coming up on one year of meetups, friends!

Please note: certain important details of this meetup are DIFFERENT than has previously been the case! You have my advance apologies that this meetup is not going to be the most convenient for all, but it is what I can manage with my current work schedule. If you’d like to organize a meetup at a less weird time, please mosey toward the forums and let the people know!

NOTE: a mistake was made in scheduling previously. Location has been changed to reflect that.
