    I'm hoping to make it there.  I was thinking of taking a bus up to Worcester on the 18th (getting in around 5:30pm) and taking the same bus back from Worcester around 6:00pm on the 19th.  Beth, would that work for you?

    Thank you Beth for putting together the itinerary.  I'm a definite YES!!!!  I'm going to start the day at the gym if anyone is interested!!!!  I'm also marking my calendar to call the Crown Bakery  a few days ahead of time and have them set aside 3 of their chocolate cream rolled cakes.  They sometimes sell out early and I want to make sure everyone gets a taste.  BEST CAKE I'VE EVER HAD!!!!  Anyone who I have shared it with agrees.

    Um yeah Karilyn, I don't know about that whole gym/working out thing.  Sounds a bit too ambitious for my taste!

    I appreciate that Gregg!   It is my goal to lose the junior burger status (without being annoying!) . . . not sure how many posts that means!  Not sure what the next level is either.  Is there a cake level or is it all about meat???

    When you get to the next level, I'll come to Boston to buy you a cake (or cupcake with Beth, to re-live Beth/yours/my little outing a year or so ago.)

    Just bought the plane tickets, so Mariton and I are in.  That looks like quite an ambitious itinerary, but that's the way we like it.  Can't wait to see everyone.
     
    I am keeping my fingers crossed for a billyboy sighting!

    Hey All, BB says "ambitious itinerary".  I would throw the word "aggressive in there also
     
    I know your dance card is full, but if you get a hankering for an early breakfast, try Carl's Oxford Diner.  You will eat like Champs and laugh  your butts off.  Sit at the counter, and as you start to finish off your meal, Gordon will do everything he can to fill your plate back up(no Charge).
     
    And maybe get your picture taken in the bus!
     
    Oh, and if any of youse guys decide to join the Chunkindales....please......no pictures

    Hey Joe
     
    That schedule is a cake walk compared to the one BB and CTD did in Nashville or I guess we could say Nashville was just practice forr this day.

    Jeeze, I don't know if I could eat that much  
     
    I would love to make one of these meet-ups, but I will probably be at the Festa dei Ceri on the 15th.  You should see me dressed as a Ceraioli di San Giorgio
     
    If I can make, I could probably pick up billyboy on the way.  I'll know by the end of next month.

    Egggggcellent!  It's all coming together according to plan!! (Rubs hands furiously and cackles maniacally).  This should be an eat & greet of epic proportions. 
    Ralph & Lori, looking forward to meeting you both! 
    Joe Rogo, it's been too long, good sir! 
    Beth & Karilyn, thanks for putting this together!

    I love New England, so I'm really looking forward to this. I am totally going to Rancatore's for ice cream while we are there :-)  This trip will be too short, but totally worth it!

    I can't wait to break bread with another "junior burger" . . . though it sounds like cake might be more appropriate - works for me!
     
    Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone!

    I'm hoping this might be an occasion for another New England excursion for you.
    There is always a couch waiting for you here in Northampton.  AND, it would be fun to be able to carpool with my superb RF friend.

    Wish I was back up home to join you all - reading the places you're going makes me hungry for food from back up in Mass! Looking forward to seeing photos and hearing reports of the trip!

    I just heard from Ellen. 
    She was excited to report her tickets and everything were all set ...
     ... into Hartford on the 11th, back on the 14th.
    I broke the news to her about the date.
    Now she's coming twice !!!
    - She and I will be foraging through Hartford on Friday afternoon, Western Mass on Saturday/Sunday the weekend beforehand.  I want her to try a burger at Joe's in Northampton ... and then (maybe Pittsfield) ??? (Open for ideas and crossing paths with other foodies.) ... practice run ???
    - Then the 19th ... see you all in W'town.
    (As of this writing, she'll be camped out in Northampton, both weekends.)
