    Beautiful Fitchburg, by the way...unlike what Rhino said on the podcast

    It is the same, family owned cinema that hosted the Monsters U screening.
    Very nice of them to let us do this again
    Thanks for setting this up!!

    Looks like an awesome event! I would love to be at the movie screening but have other commitments throughout all of June (huge bummer), but really enjoyed the previous private movie showing in Fitchburg. Ryno will be happy to know that not much has changed in Fitchburg and all of his favorite places are still there! Maybe he could enjoy a Reuben sandwich at Slattery's?

    So exciting! :) For those who have dietary sensitivities there is a Whole Foods grocery store within a 5-10min car ride from the hotel. Personally, I think it's too far to walk, but is very easy to get to by car. http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/newtonville For those inclined to adult libations, there is a lovely store next door that has an amazing selection of local and non-local breweries and wineries. (For my fellow NOLA transplants, they have Abita.) http://www.martysfinewine.com/
    Further down the road is Cabots, a cash-only restaurant that serves Sundaes bigger than your head. Personally, I think their strength is in the Sundaes/yogurt/ice cream. http://cabots.com/ However, Sundaes are already on the delicious itinerary!

    I'll be helping out family in NOLA for the June 20th movie showing, so I'm sorry to miss that. On the bright side I get to participate in two Pride parades this year! Sat. June 13th at the 45th Boston Pride parade with Intergalactic Alliance http://intergalacticalliance42.com/ DISers are welcome to register to march with us at Boston pride! AND I get to march in NOLA for their 5th parade on Sat. June 20th. Hurrah for my hometown! So I'm sad to miss the movie, but happy to support an important event.

    Looking forward to a truly wonderful and inspirational DISmeet. :flower:
    Excelsior! -krista

    Hi, my name is Steve, and my wife Marci and I are DIS Meet addicts. :teeth:

    This year, I went to Richmond and we both went to New Jersey and Hershey, just signed up for New England, and will be at Delaware in October.

    Seriously, we are very excited to be able to join you this year for the first time. We are all booked and registered. Who should I contact with info on items to donate for the raffle/auction?

    Sorry. I got that answered on facebook. Like their facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NEDISMeet?fref=ts. You can then message them there. That's what I did.
