Big E circus

The circus fills up fast and there's usually a long line to wait. I don't know if you have some seating reserved through the Big E. Just thought I would give everyone a head's up. If anyone from the planning committee has been to the Big E, then you probably already know this.

We won't be going to the Big E but DH and I will be attending the breakfast/podcast recording. See you all then!

See you all Saturday morning!

Unfortunately, our flight doesn't get in until 12am, so we're going to miss the Friday events.

I'll be there for Sunday but I thought I'd add information for those staying at the Sheraton or Marriott for the weekend. I worked at Tower Square a couple years back and not much has changed.

There is an enclosed foot bridge that connects the Sheraton to Tower Square where there is a CVS pharmacy and Dunkin Donuts on the lower level. Attached to the Marriott is a Champions sports bar that has pub food and drink.

If anyone is looking for food and/or drinks after the events (mostly drinks) the Student Prince restaurant is about three streets from the hotel on Fort Street and is in walking distance. Great German food, German beer on tap, wine by the glass and Gemutlichkeit (Google it, there is a Jungle Book reference there). Try the fried Camembert cheese. If you need another opinion ask Lee Cockerell he ran the Marriott Springfield early in his career and knows the Student Prince well. Check out www.studentprince.com for more info and recipes even if you don't stop.

Also, Max's Tavern at the Basketball Hall Fame has great drinks and food. No admission required. Max's is walkable but probably best to take your car. Max's has an extensive drink menu, check it out. www.maxrestaurantgroup.com

I hope this helps and see you all Sunday

We go to Max's quite frequently and really like it. If you are thinking of going you may want to try and get a reservation.

I know, I know....I'll miss seeing you guys too. But, I have to head to the Cape to help dh and his brothers figure out what to do with the stuff in their mom's house. We all want certain stuff...so that needs to be dealt with. Then, on Sunday, I have to be at a children's theatre workshop...helping run it, so can't miss it. I already had to cancel something in order to be at the Cape on Saturday. Not a happy camper.
I'll miss seeing you Jeff, but look forward to seeing Kathy in Dec...in Orlando!!!!
