Boston Meetup, Saturday, April 28, at the Newsfeed Cafe in the main Boston Public Library at Copley Square. The closet T station is Copley on the Green Line. The Johnson Building, closest to the Newsfeed Cafe, has an accessible entrance. The cafe has a variety of sandwiches and pastries, including vegetarian options, though vegan and gluten-free are less sure.

Your substitute organizer this month is Vicki. I will try to get there by 1 p.m. and claim a table, likely near the large outside windows.

I have shoulder-length mostly white hair, and will probably be wearing a purple shirt. I’ll make some kind of identifying sign for the table (maybe just “FOCA” in large friendly letters).

Feel free to bring coloring things (pencils, crayons, etc. as well as pages to color on), pictures of other people’s pets, and ideas about the evolution and distribution of the sweet potato.

UPDATE AS OF 11:48, SUNDAY 3/18: well, this is very annoying! There was a holdup on the Commuter Rail, so I will not be arriving with my sign and my knitting until around 2 pm. Please carry on without me!

Hello Awkwardeers! NUMBER FIVE NUMBER FIVE NUMBER FIVE

When: SUNDAY, March 18th, 2018, 1 pm

I am taking a moment here to emphasize that the meetup is on SUNDAY this weekend.

Where: Caffè Nero, 733 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

The closest T stop is Green Street, on the Orange line (one stop from the end). The coffee shop is a ten minute walk west of the station.

Venue: So far as I can tell from Google maps and the Yelp page, the building should be reasonably accessible. It’s level with the sidewalk and has a variety of table sizes.

They have some vegetarian (not sure about vegan) options and one gluten-free sandwich.

How to find us: I will claim a table and set up a paper sign. I will have my knitting, some coloring sheets, and some art supplies.

What to bring: Crayons, more fun coloring sheets, a puzzle, stories about llamas.

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

NOTE: I will not be organizing the meetup in April, though I hope to make a rousing comeback in May! If you would like to organize the April meetup, please head on over to the forums and post in the Boston thread about your ideas!
