Boston Kossacks logo, 550x100 pixels.
Life gets complicated, fast, even when we're trying to keep a peripheral eye open for the fast-moving "out-of-nowhere" objects & events. It's been like that since the one and only initial meetup of the Boston Kossacks.

Let's change that.

I posted a piece a while back to try and plan for the next meetup; then life happened. But we did learn something: it seems like Saturdays may be our most commonly available day, with lunch/brunch or perhaps early to mid-afternoon as a target time period. I'm not available most weekdays now (tho weekday evenings may be feasible) ; HawkWife's availability is random potluck but may be scheduled with enough notice (tho sometimes she's left hanging until the last minute).

As for venue, gmoke and bjedward had suggested trying to complement a meetup with some other activity (a "before or after" type thing), which everyone thought might be fun & interesting - that would enable folks to come, eat, make merry and then either carry on to an activity or bustle off to parts unknown as they please.

So, I'd like to shoot for a Saturday in Feb - the 1st, 8th or 15th - and I'll suggest a possible event tie-in: the Green Patriot Posters exhibition at the Design Museum Boston (building 315 on A Street, Fort Point). It's a free exhibition, 10am to 5pm Sat thru Wed.

I have no idea where to meet & eat in the area, but if that's our "after-meet" venue, we should probably look for someplace near-ish, affordable and accessible.

It's only a suggestion, tho - so please chime in, step up and let your voices be heard (in the form of typed comments, below, ideally!).

All Boston & New England Kossacks (and any other Kossacks, aligned or not, like MassKos etc.) are invited to chime in, attend, and sound off.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
