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.)

I'll be starting the morning at 8:00 AM at the Crowne Bakery.  I've already reserved some of their chocolate rolls so whoever does not get here can enjoy them later.  I hope I have company here but expect to see everyone at the next stop at 8:45 AM.

George’s Coney Island
158 Southbridge Street, 508-753-4362

5 minute drive to Boynton Restaurant if interested
They have not answered phone yet so we keep trying - hoping they will save us tables.
 
Due to timing we took the Boynton Restaurant off of the itinerary.  However, if anyone is interested in going, I highly recommend it.  I could be tempted!  They take reservations for parties of 8 or more. 
 
Boynton Restaurant

Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone . . . anticipating a wonderful day!  karilyn and beth

As a transplanted Massachusetts gal who is unable to attend this tour, I look forward to photos and commentary with eager anticipation! Especially because a number of stops are places I've wanted to check out AND some are ones I've never heard of since I moved out of the Bay State nearly 12 (!!) years ago. Have "a wicked good time"!

See you all at the Boulevard.  I will be interested in the food stops.  Walking has been a problem lately so I will probably skip the museums and drive to the other places.  Hope to see you all Saturday.

looking forward  to the comraderie, & the pizza (espescially!). Plus, I put in a special request with Gregg, to have us stop at the Mad Jack BBQ in Worcester, after the official tour ends.
Need my beef rib fix, LOL..
 
I'm receiving gr8 Northampton hospitality this "mothers day" holiday weekend.  (tnx, Gregg!).   (super good fresh burger at Joe's Pizza) I feel like I'm at summer camp:)   .  And, gonna fly back up here for the Worcester meat up !

We've learned from the best . . . THANK YOU!!!  B and A
 
Scouted out places to sit near Corner Grille if there are no tables when we get there.  Close by there is a church with lots of steps in front . . . further up the street is a park with benches.  Weather looks fabulous so dining al fresco is possible!

If you are headed for Worcester this morning, take a second and notice today's Roadfood restaurant of the day. Coincidence? I think not!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in a few hours.

I just saw that - how strange!!!  Beth and Heather are picking me up soon . . . we may have time to swing by that address.  I spent days trying to reach them and finally got a completely different business.  My money says they are closed!
 
See you very soon . . . so excited for the wonderful day we will have!  I've been eating salad most of the week getting ready!!

Someone posted on Yelp a few days ago that they are "closed until further notice." If you guys do swing by, please let us know if that is true!

A big thank you to Karilyn and Beth for putting together a fantastic event this past Saturday. Kudos to  Karilyn put together a detailed  itinerary packet for everyone .
 
I had a great time and it was good to expose my friend Mike to the Roadfood culture even if its only for a day, it was great to see everyone again. The adventures continued into yesterday spending the morning in Quincy with Buffetbuster & Mariton and  additionally, the afternoon in Cambridge with Ralph Melton and his lovely bride, Ice Cream Chick and the Chris half of Ayersian.

It takes a village!!!  Thanks to everyone for making it a wonderful day . . . . mother nature included!  We could not have had better weather after so many days of rain.  I hope all of the travelers got home safe.  Thank you for making the effort to come to Worcester!!!  
 
I'm actually heading back to Worcester tomorrow night.  Possibly a meal at Via or Boynton before seeing Joan Rivers at The Hanover Theater.  Maybe dessert at Sweet!   Worcester . . . . so many places . . . so little time!
 
Looking forward to the next Roadfood adventure . . . .
