    Thanks for our work MF! And waxel, looking forward to meeting you. Glad you get to treat yourself! (It's a treat for me too.... )

    So far on the list
    MFarone
    CoyoteChris
    Mrs. P (+1)
    Dorispulaski (+1)
    waxel

    So exactly 7, though I'm sure we'll get others as we get closer.

    tuolsai, sadly will be on a plane by the time we meet, but hopefully we'll all get to see her at some point in other informal gatherings.

    Yes, its always fun to see the faces of those we converse with....everyone is busy but it is nice to sniff noses if only for alittle while. Sad to think we may be sitting next to each other at a practice and not know the other person is a GSer. But I respect the desires of others to NOT get dressed up as pumpkins...

    It seems to be a possibility, certainly! I'm just hoping he gets two clean skates he can be proud of and let the rest happen as they may.

    Well, there is always the carnation in buttonhole approach... Golden carnations for Golden Skate, of course. Also, you can have some passwords - "Isn't it a nice day today?" - "Yes, it's a golden day to watch some skating... " - wink optional.

    Of course! And welcome to Golden Skate.

    So here's what I got:

    MFarone
    CoyoteChris
    Mrs. P (+1)
    Dorispulaski (+1)
    waxel (+1)
    Brightbooks

    So we have 9 people so far.

    As noted, we are looking to get together after the Men's Free Skate, which is scheduled to end around 5:15 p.m. (after the medal ceremony).


    Here are the two places MFarone states takes reservations:
    McGann's Irish Pub will be open; does take reservations; can accommodate us at 1 table; is ADA compliant; phone 617-227-4059

    Porters Bar will be open; will take a reservations for after the event (Mens Final) can accommodate us; is ADA compliant; phone 617-742-7678

    Also MF, you asked about football playoff games: The Niners and Panthers play at 1:05 p.m. EST and the Chargers and Broncos play at 4:40 EST. I don't see huge crowds to watch the San Diego/Denver game. (The Patriots, as I noted elsewhere, actually play Saturday night, during the Ladies Free Skate).

    I guess if there are others who want to join -- I can keep taking names until Tuesday or Wednesday and I can make the reservation...any preferences between McGann's and Porters?

    Either McGanns or Porters is good for me. Thank you for facilitating!

    I have a feeling I'll be there this weekend. I would like to meet up with other lovers of skating. Problem is with this dinner after the men's FS if Adam Rippon doesn't make it, I will not be able to hold down one bite. I might go into really bitchy mode.... hmmm
