Sandra and I are in.
 
I'll put together a definitive itinerary as soon as I have an idea of hours of operation for
the stops I have in mind.

It would be great to see you again.
No definitive plans for May yet. But we usually meet the 2nd tuesday of each month.
Perhaps you might want to make some suggestions?

Hello tiki !
 
I agree with WJ, why don't you suggest places since you're only here for this month.  I'm so excited to have a new face join us!  I live and work very close to Millis and Medfield so if transportation is an issue, I might be able to assist.  Looking forward to meeting you!

Tiki I believe is one of the original members of the Tennessee Glee Club. If he wasn't the original then he was apart of the 2nd annual glee club event...
 
I had the opportunity to meet up with Tiki in Oklahoma during my heartlanding through the breadbasket trip back in the Summer of 2010. Here is a photo of us together.

Here is our tentative itinerary for March 12.....
 
1st Stop
C'est Bon
426 Cass Avenue Woonsocket
- A Quebecois Bakery.....They have  Whole or "by the slice" French Canadian Meat Pies
Here's an article in the local paper

I checked and they're only open till 6pm...
 
2nd Stop
Moonlight House of Weiners
32 Rathbun Street Woonsocket
 
They have the local special here- The Dynamite. Unique to Northern Rhode Island, to me it tastes like American Chop Suey Meat Sauce in a Grinder Roll.....add some red pepper flakes and the sandwich really comes alive!
 
3rd Stop
The Bocce Club
228 Saint Louis Ave Woonsocket
 
Here you'll find one of the best renditions of the Northern Rhode Island Style Family Chicken Dinner
---
 
For those who were hoping for Ice Cream, unfortunately most ice cream stands in RI are seasonal and are still closed or have very irregular hours in Mid March......
-
It would be great to have a head count...
 
So far I have:
 
Karilyn
The Ayersians
Sandra and Yours Truly

I just added it.

On an aside, Sandra is taking me to a Polish Restaurant in Montville CT  for lunch tomorrow. It's called Smakosh. Apparently it's only open for Breakfast and Lunch

Props to Sandra!  Will you be doing any gambling while you are in the area??!!  The money kind . . . not the stomach kind.  Enjoy!

How are you doing for transportation to/from Woonsocket?  Let me know if I need to save space in my car for you . . . don't want to make the seats available to others yet if you need a ride.

Time to meet is 6pm at the bakery, right?  We'll be there asap!
Dale, I have another friend, Joelle, who is working until 7pm in Franklin but will meet us at the Bocce Club (since I figure we'll be there around that time).  And our friend Yvel with also be with us, so that's 4 Ayersians for the Bocce Club reservation!  Thanks!

Ok....

It looks like there will be 9 of us

Ayersians- 4
Paulde- 1
Karilyn & Heather- 2
Yours Truly and Sandra- 2
--
I just called the Bocce Club and confirmed that reservations won't be needed...

Sandra and I will be leaving my office at 5pm. It should take a half hour or a little longer in rush hour traffic to get to C'est Bon- so it looks like we'll get there first.
--
addendum

I just spoke with Caitlin at C'est Bon to let them know that some of us may arrive a little after 6pm
She'll make sure that they're well stocked...

Heather and I are starting the adventure at the BEEF BARN, about 10 minutes from our first stop, in North Smithfield, RI.  We plan to arrive there by 5:00 and make it to the Bakery before 6:00.   Feel free to join us!!!

Thank-You for visiting us @ C'est Bon Homestyle Bakery & Cafe.  We were glad that you were able to try our French Canadian Meat Pie, Cinnamon Buns and Coffee Milk; our local favorites. It was very nice to meet all of you. Please stop by again some time. Tell Your Friends !!!!!!

Not sure if there will be a report...but Ayersian (Chris) took plenty of photos
 
There were 10 of us... despite the pouring rain, a great time was had by all..

C'est Bon was a wonderful surprise....Superb meat pies, spinach puffs and I had a bite of their cinammon roll....I regret not trying the pea soup. But we plan to return.
 
Last time I walked into Bocce Club was nearly 13 years ago and it hasn't changed a bit. The Family Style Chicken Dinner was just as good, I still prefer it over Wright's Farms but on the other hand, Kimberly, Paulde's daughter prefers Wrights Farms.
The only difference was (and my memory might be playing tricks on me) is that I remembered meat in the antipasto  salad when I last visited.
