2014 Boston Fest

Mrs. StevenHB (sometimes referred to as SallyAB) and I had such a great time at the Taunton All-Forum Fest last summer that we'd like to host the Summer, 2014 Fest at our home in the south shore suburbs of Boston.  We're thinking August 8-10 but could be flexible if this date were generally unworkable for a large number of people.

We like to host parties - given my CooksTalk association, we'll plan on delivering an interesting menu (and we'll be recruiting some cooking friends to help).

There are, of course, all sorts of things to do in the Boston area. Depending upon your interests, there are a variety of sites to see:

  • Boston (~30 minutes)
  • Salem (~60 minutes)
  • Plymouth and Plimouth Plantation (~30 minutes)
  • Cape Cod (depends on exactly where you want to go)
  • Assorted beaches
  • Newport, RI (75 minutes, but many of you have been there)

How do you all feel about a 2014 fest in the Northeast US?

I've cross-posted this at the "Taunton Classic" fora.


Maybe we'll find direction, around some corner, where it's been waiting to meet us.

Without coffee, chocolate, and beer, in that order, life as we know it would not be possible

It has been a long time since I graduated high school (was it?) with your wife.  She was a great classmate.  Nice to hear there'll be another reunion.

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

I hope to make it (post #208985, reply #6 of 9)

Trouble with these things for me is that I'm never sure whether it's work or pleasure. If it's work, well, I'd rather not do that on the weekends.

let someone else bring all the cheer from FHB............show up as John Svenson (there can always be more than one) and no one will be the wiser.

Pleasure.
