Re: archBoston Meetup!

I believe I counted 18 members at the meetup's peak. Great to see everyone! It was a really good time! Lots of discussion on many various topics. Thank you to everyone who made it out and hope everyone else enjoyed too.

Re: archBoston Meetup!

So that turned out fantastic! Thank you all for coming out and chatting. It was a pleasure meeting everyone. Dave, great work behind the bar! Wish you could have been on the other side for a bit.

Sidenote: apparently there was a rumor that I went to the wrong bar at first. I was actually stuck on a 111 for nearly an hour. When in doubt, don't take the 111 during peak. Sorry I was wicked late.

Anyway, I want to do these on a quarterly/seasonal basis. It's nice to get out from behind the screen. Stay tuned for the next one in a few months. Stay cool guys!

I could've sworn I heard someone else mention that before I did, hahahaha. Apologies if I offended! (Sorry about the 111.)

It was fantastic meeting so many of you. Let's not let the conversation end here! I look forward to seeing you all again in a few months.

Re: archBoston Meetup!

Early on, we had a bit of debate over the pronunciation of "archBoston". I suggested that it is derived from "architecture" -- using the voiceless velar stop. But if we insist on a pronunciation that uses the voiceless palato-alveolar affricate, then perhaps this is what the next meetup should look like:

Had a good time! Slightly ironic that the archBoston meet up was in Cambridge IMO.

Re: archBoston Meetup!

Hey guys; sorry I missed you all last night, I have friends visiting from out of town. Data texted me last night about the great time you all had, which is no surprise after the fun time I had with all of you at the Stoddard's meetup previously.

If the meet-ups do in fact become quarterly/seasonally (which I'm a huge proponent for), I'm happy to volunteer my place to host a gathering. I bought and renovated a condo in East Boston's Jefferies Point. I live a stone's throw from K.O. Pies at the Shipyard, which is a real gem and the kind of place I imagine many of you would enjoy checking out.

Talk soon!

Re: archBoston Meetup!

I say ark Boston, btw, based on it being derived from "architecture." Wasn't there for that discussion.

KO's a great spot, though I do miss its predecessor, Scup's. I was there with out-of-town guests last Friday night.

As an alternative, if we do another meetup later this summer, the patio at Audubon is pretty friggin' cool.
