I’m now free to enter/leave the country so I’d be interested in popping down to Boston (I have an AirBnB credit I need to use soon) but alas that weekend the Pop Montreal festival is still going on. Next time! (In the meantime if anyone is visiting Montreal as well I’ll be here).

My plan was to be there the next weekend, first weekend in October to watch a pole dance competition but I'm not entirely sure my babysitter (my mom :lol:) is willing & available just yet. I'd I make it up there, I'll send you a message. I'd love to meet up!

Last time we met at the Boston Public Library, and I believe they close at 5:00pm on Sundays. As jonm mentioned, the weather might be decent enough to meet outside somewhere, too.


You are indeed correct about the library closing at 5:00pm Sundays. I could probably get there sometime past 1:15, as I will be on the other side of the city attending liturgy and then I will have to eat lunch. We might want to define a specific place at the library, since, from what I remember, it is quite large. I have not been there for years, however, so I can not really comment more specifically. Depending on how late you take things, I may not be able to stay the whole time, as I will have to take a train back to my uni.

Haha we had a bit of trouble with that last time. I think I walked every inch of the library on the phone with Xenops :lol::lol: One corner has nice big street level windows & seems to be freer for conversation (and was there even a coffee shop? Now I can't remember). We should go there again.

Last time we met just inside the Johnson entrance by the New and Novel sitting area. As Ani remembers, there is also a coffee shop a few feet away. Do we want to meet here again?

I'm assuming north is up on this map. Either way, that's fine with me. Is there a specified time? As I said above, I could probably be there at 1:15 or later, since I will have to cross the city and I usually eat lunch at my parish after liturgy.

(Unless yous all want to come hear liturgy that morning. It's in Ukrainian :))

Usually (the past two times) I get there at 2:00pm, and visit with people as they come in. How does this sound? :)

Looks like I should make it up there, but not sure what time or how long yet. I got an offer to fly up private, but it might cut my time short. Not sure what I'm going to do yet, but I hope to see you all!

I may be out. Wife and DD are sick, and I'm starting to feel it. If it progresses as theirs did, I may be lying down all weekend. :(
