    Aw, you should join us! If anything else, we can comfort you. (I'd be willing to buy you a beer...either way. )

    Mrs. P, I hope you and your hubby don't have any major problems on your flight in to Boston. I'll be trying to fly to Ottawa via Toronto on Wednesday. I'm sorry I won't be in Boston to enjoy the group dinner with everyone. I hope you all have good food and a good time.

    It should be OK, I think. We're flying from Seattle to Boston direct and we're not leaving until Wednesday night, so I hope things will calm down by then. (And worse case scenario is they'll fly south to avoid any super harsh weather.)

    We'll miss you Paul!

    Either McGanns or Porters would be ok with me. Maybe Chris will be able to check one of these out on Wednesday and give his opinion. Since New England isn't playing on Sunday maybe the places won't be too crowded. Reservations are probably still a good idea.

    Both places are rated well. I think Porter has more variety as far as food choices, but if people prefer the other...I can go with that also. I'll text Chris and see if he can check out the two places.

    Due to poor scheduling between BCEC and TD, I wont be able to eat by the TD, but maybe I can
    Take a look see. BCEC has been taking taking tickets and giving wrist bands for re-entry. Sweet.
    Don't know about TD during practice. All I know is to this point BCEC has been very crowded and we mark our places with coats.
    Cant wait to go to arena permenantly.

    HI Tasha, glad you can join us! And welcome to Golden Skate!

    I'm going to finalize details today. Chris has checked out both spots and says that McGinn's has better seating, so I will roll with that.

    So here's the updated list (10):
    MFarone
    CoyoteChris
    Mrs. P (+1)
    Dorispulaski (+1)
    waxel (+1)
    Brightbooks
    tasha555

    Anyone else want to join us? Sunday night after the Men's Free Skate!

    I popped into both pubs and Porters appeared to be mostly booths although they may have tabels they could push together. McGanns seems to be mostly tables. I would suggest Mrs. P call them first but I am sure either would be fine. The are very close to the arena and right next door to eachother. If someone else wants to pop in and look them over, that would be great. But considering the Mongol hoards on Sunday, time is of the essance.

    I looked to book a table for Friday night and, irritatingly, none of the places mentioned take reservations on event days. A table of 10 may have some sway. Dunno?

    Tasha, welcome to GS! It's great that you are able to join right before an event for which you are volunteering. Hope you have a wonderful time, and that everyone can find a dining spot to accommodate the group.

    And I hope that the weather modifies just in time!

    Hello everyone
    I've been in NYC for nearly a week and heading for Boston tomorrow afternoon. The U.S is so confusing for me, but I'm getting the hang of it!! I'm leaving before the men's event so I hope people can keep me updated on that and the gala. Also, does anyone know of any organised meet and greets? I am literally half way across the world just for this event ><
    Hope to see many of you there!!!
