BOSTON GTG 2012

Jump to last reply

It’s time to get cracking on the 2012 BOSTON GTG. The dates are October 5-7, 2012. Our headquarters will be the Marriott Residence Inn in Norwood, MA 02062. The actual GTG will take place Saturday commencing at 11AM at Olivadi Restaurant; 32 Guild St; Norwood, MA 02062; Tel: 781-762-9090.

The Marriott is offering us a special rate of $101.+ per night. Call them at 800-331-3131 to make a res identifying yourself as part of the fodors travel group. Deadline for this rate is 9/4/12. After that time the rate may no longer be available.

Friday night the Kimball’s (rhkkmk) will be hosting a home-cooked meal (think filet of beef, shrimp and artichokes, special potatoes and more). We hope we can all squeeze into our old NE house. Fodorites are welcome to arrive at 9 Ridgeway Ave; Needham, MA 02492 (781-449-0903) commencing at 6PM. Bring a bottle of your favorite wine. Dinner will be served about 7:15. To defray our costs we are asking each person to contribute $20. ALL ARE WELCOME!!!

Saturday the doors at Olivadi open about 11AM. There is plenty of free parking BEHIND the restaurant (do not park in the small lot next to the restaurant—residents only). The Norwood commuter rail stop is near-by. We will have our regular gab fest prior to lunch being served at 1PM. The luncheon consists of salad, entrée and dessert, plus coffee and tea. There will be a choice of three plated Italian meals for lunch, plus a veggie option—see below.. We expect the inclusive price to hover around $35 per person, depending on the number of participants and the final bill---cash only. There will be a cash bar as usual.

Saturday evening we will be returning to the Similan Restaurant 145 First St; Cambridge, MA 02142 at 7PM for a Thai dinner. Street parking or a garage at the mall down the road. The food and atmosphere there assure us of an enjoyable end to our weekend. As usual we will divide the check by the number of participants.

DEADLINE for reservations this year will be September 18, 2012. I would of course appreciate hearing in advance of that date from as many of you as possible at: rhkkmk@msn.com
Please be careful to indicate the number in your party, and your preference of meal (see list below) for Saturday luncheon, as well as your attendance at Friday and Saturday evening meals.

Chicken Picatta with asparagus risotto
