KIDS* Misc stuff:
A question has been asked about bringing kids. Originally I was going to schedule this in a park about 12 miles away, but I didn't know how everyone would feel about "kid noise." Bangkok Cafe is in an older strip mall, there isn't a park close by.
Adults will be primarily talking and getting to know one another. If it's a question of having your kids attend with you or not coming at all, PLEASE bring your kids. But please also be aware of your kids "expiration date" with these kind of activities (speaking as a mother of 4), so that everyone has a good time.
If you want to make a day of it with your kids AND go to a zoo with an white alligator - the Capron Park Zoo would be a good bet. (Capron Park was were I thought of holding this first get together in the first place)
Directions from Bangkok Cafe, Foxboro to Capron Park Zoo, Attleboro
Will the meeting move to different locations?Next Meet Up:
YES! Si! Oui! Da! Ha! Hi!
Especially if there are people who recommend places to hold it!
Those places have to be relatively straight forward to get to.
My thinking for choosing the Bangkok Cafe was to have a place that was easily accessible via the Interstate AND on the MBTA.
We need, IMO, to be able to establish connections with Boston and Providence area kossacks who don't have a car or a reliable car so we have a car pool list before we start having meet up in Western MA, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine
