Stacey, I'm sure we can find somewhere in Quincy that is T accessible. I'll keep you posted. I'll look into it today

I would love to join you guys! I was unable to do so the last time a meet up was planned due to work. Unfortunately, I live in Boston and rely on public transportation. Any place that is T accessible works for me!

Southboro is next to Framingham, west of the city. But I have no trouble going anywhere, so Quincy would be fine. Does anyone have any favorites ? Panera seems to have some D friendly fare.

I'm game for a meet up. I live in Southborough, but can get to just about anywhere in the car. Sorry you'll be in Canada V it would be nice to see you.

I'd love to meet up! I live in Jamaica Plain, so I could continue on down the line to meet someplace between Boston and the South Shore. Maybe in Quincy, so that folks can get there on public transportation, if need be?

I'll be in Canada that weekend :( next time hopefully!

Hi everyone, I wanted to attempt to put a meetup together since the nice weather is upon us. The day will be April 6th for lunch. That is the first Sunday in April.

So we have the day and the time I'll leave it up to everyone to settle on a place which will depend on where we are all coming from. Let's try to make it convenient and easy access so everyone travels equal distance. I am on the south shore in pembroke. Ideas? Karen

Hi everyone!! I'm a new member of Boston Buddies & would be very excited to meet with you all the next time you meet up in Boston!! I'm from Braintree so it's very easy for me to get intown with the T & commuter rail right here. Could I be included in the next meet up???

Unfortunately, I was able to go as I had a conference that ran a bit longer than planned. I would definitely like to attempt at meeting again and hash out a better plan.
