Past Events (2000)


Informal Intern Lunch on Friday July 7th

Meet at noon outside the Marriott near Kendall Square on the Broadway Street side and we'll walk over to the Grove, a favorite lunch spot for MERL people. Update: We had a good time but only MERL people showed up. Same time next week? If the other labs don't show we will have to start taunting them... :)

Sorry, all of us Lotus people were having our own lunch at the same time.

Informal Intern Lunch on Friday July 14

We had a good time all going out to eat on Friday. Let's do it again - any suggestions for lunch on this Friday? MT

How about Poppa and Goose (I'm not sure that's spelled correctly) near Lotus? It's got an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet for $7.50, and the food is "pan-asian cuisine" (the people who run it are Vietnamese, but Vietnamese food doesn't sell as well as Chinese or Thai, so they serve those too).

Sounds good - how about some specific directions and meeting places and times so we can meet y'all there on Friday?

Do you know how to get to the Cambridge Side Galleria? Why don't we just meet in front of that (the end that's closer to Kendall Square and Lotus) at noon, and I'll show you the way to the restaurant. If you need directions to the Galleria, email me. The restaurant is on First Street, on the side opposite the Galleria and a block or two away from Lotus. Brian Campbell

How many people will actually be coming from MERL and Compaq? It would be nice to know, so I'll know when everyone has shown up. Brian Campbell>Brian_Campbell@lotus.com

MERL will be there in full effect. Last week we had a dozen people, and hope to repeat or increase that number on Friday.

Well, we had a great time, and we got about 10-12 people from Lotus and 10-12 from MERL (and maybe one or two from Extreme Blue, although I'm not sure). Now that we've had one at MERL and one at Lotus, let's see about having one at Compaq next week.

OK, let's see about week 3. I think it's time that the Compaq people showed themselves. How about it? Could one of the Compaq people suggest a place?
Update: Lunch on Friday July 21st will be at the Grove. We will meet at the Kendall T stop at noon, (on the Main Street side) and walk over to the Grove from there.

So are we on for 7/28 or what? If anyone knows the plan, please post asap. Thanks. -Regina
July 28th Lunch: Meet at Kendall Square at noon - we'll dine at the food court, unless someone can suggest something better...

On Friday, August 4th, we'll be going to the K2 Cafe, on Main Street across from the Marriott - see you there!

Friday August 11th - meet at Kendall Square T Stop at noon

Ultimate concert

George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars are playing July 9th at the Roxy. If you've never been to a George Clinton concert, you definitely need to go – you don't need to know his music. It's just one big jam fest

Update: the concert was a jam, though everyone who went from MERL left after 2 1/2 hours of funk to get some sleep for the Monday morning grind

Whale Watching

I'm planning on going whale watching on Saturday, July 15th - if you're interested, drop me a line. MT
