So I would invite everyone over to my humble abode for a pre-Brooklyn get together but I live in Manhattan not Brooklyn. In other words right city wrong borough.
If people are interested there is probably a spot either in or near Barclays to hang. If its a nice day folks would probably want to hang outdoors, however if its hot hazy & humid this could be a plan. I will do some research. Any suggestions will be appreciated though not necessarily adhered to.
For the Boston North end meet up the only place I have been to is Dolce Vitae...been there twice, pretty good. It could atleast be a place to meet. It is kind of fun to walk around the North End and just check out places till we find one, especially if it is early.
