The Miz and I will be in Boston for the AVMA conference this summer. Anybody up for getting together for a bite and/or a sip or two while we're there?

@CowDoc,
Sure! Just give us the deets when you get closer to the time. Snow should be gone by then. Wink

I'd love it.

Let us know if you need any info about the area, public transporation or
whatever.

@CowDoc,
Are we talking Lincolnshire or Massachusetts?

@Lordyaswas,
Side note: there is a Lincoln, Massachusetts, named after the city in
Lincolnshire. I haven't verified it, but this may be the only Lincoln town
in the US not named after Abe.

@George,
Boston is named after Boston, Lincolnshire, East Midlands, England, UK.

@jespah,
We fly in the evening of the 9th and out the morning of the 16th. We're staying at a B & B in Winthrop, across the bay from Logan, but we'll be available to go about anywhere the T will take us. Hopefully, several of us can get together a time or two while we're there.

Picture of me with the Mayor of Boston (Lincolnshire) back in the 1950's.

@George,
Cool! Perhaps you know a good place or two to meet. Whatever works for you and Jes and anyone else who wants to be part of the party works for us.

@Walter Hinteler,
How is it, Walter, your list does not include . . .
Quote:
Lincoln, located in the southeastern part of the State of Nebraska, is the capital and the second-most populous city of Nebraska Lincoln is also the county seat of Lancaster County and makes up part of the Lincoln metropolitan (statistical) area. Lincoln's population in 2013 was estimated at 268,738.

Lincoln was founded as the village of Lancaster on the salt flats of what was to become Lancaster County. A short time later, Lancaster was renamed Lincoln and became Nebraska's capital. Sometimes referred to as the "Star City", many of Lincoln's primary employers fall within the services industries. The city is the home of the University of Nebraska, has an unemployment rate of 2.4% (December 2014, preliminary) and has the second tallest capitol building in the United States.

Getting us all on the same page is the challenge.
You guys like seafood?

Because it was named/renamed after President Abraham Lincoln.
And Lancaster ...

County officials selected a site on Salt Creek for the seat of county government and gave the town, and eventually the county, the name Lancaster, likely after the county of the same name in Pennsylvania.

@George,
Duh! Remember we're only ten miles from the Divide. Good seafood isn't all that common. Seafood is among the delicacies we try to find when we're on the road. If everybody can't get on the same page, I'll bet the Miz and I can probably get together with folks more than once, too.
