I'll see what I can do. As usual, I have no idea what my schedule will be as far as weekend work goes, and I need all the hours I can get right now

If I show, I'll try to bring some breathe right strips to spare the innocent

Thanks for the advice Glib.
Hartford gives me a good fly in option, but the fly out sucks. Deadheading a rental for an open jaw is going to make the car more expensive than a flight.

Unless there's a compelling reason to come in earilier, I'm thinking of taking a FRI night red-eye into Boston and would arrive there at 6AM.

That gives me time to muck around a little before I get to yon event.

I would leave on a 6PM flight from Boston.


Unless SWMBO wants to come with me and then visit her cousin in Manchester.... then it get complicated again.

Glib, what time are you thinking about people getting together?

We can get started as early as anyone would like.
If anyone is interested in skiing, I can get some 1/2 price tix for mt snow.
Other then that I figure we could get the ball rolling between 4-6 pm.
I'm also thinking that we may abstain from the brewing aspect so as to maximize our imbibing fun.
We could have dinner at my house, enjoy some beers, and then hit some of the local spots (all within walking distance). Then eventually stumble back to my place.
EDIT:

Additional ideas:
Brewery tour at McNeill's. New site, and old site.
Sunday morning mashing
Corny Keg stands

I'd love to actually get a chance to see McNeill's before he gets too soused.....

Should be a blast. I'd love to mash in Sunday morning, but I'll have to hit the road ASAP. I wasn't planning on lugging out all of my gear for this occassion. I'll definately have a keg or two with me, though (maybe I'll drop the coin on a couple new ones, I'm starting to run out )

Yeah, it's a good idea to get to the brewery earlier in the day if you know what I mean.
I was thinking about mashing in early sunday moring. Don't feel obligated to bring your brewing gear. This is designed to be more of a drinking/socializing event then a brew session.

+1 on Ray. I've read his opinions on the state of craft brewing and strategies to stay in business. Good stuff.

I'd like to remain drunker than him so as not to be let down.

What about a good ol fashioned tobaggan run?
