    Awesome.

    We need dates, times, and locations suggested.

    Pru? Upsides: public, lots of space, no one has to host, it won't drag out; Downsides: no alcohol, no potential for rowdiness (pros for some maybe)
    Someone's house? Pretty much the converse of the above.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    I unfortunately don't have a house to offer, but I vote house (if someone can comfortably host that is). This isn's, like, a tame book club-type meetup. Or at least, I hope that isn't what it will be.
  5.  
    Hey I want to do this.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?
  6.  
    ^ I'm bringing my Satanic Bible. It's going to be one hell for a book club meeting. Let's rock.

    Location: Bus Stop? If they don't have a tree, I'll bring one. I think that place is a good "default" BFG venue. It's basically centrally located, has lots of room, and cheap beer.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    i can offer up my place but it might be small depending on how many people join. Plus side, I live above the Behan so we can always spill over into the bar.'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.
  8.  
    Bus stop would be awesome.

    I may be able to offer my place again, but I'll have to ask my roommate. Also, it is considerably smaller than my old house, however in Somerville and not bumfuck-brighton.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    Maybe my house if it isn't too big of a crowd. 20-25 max. In Medford, but plenty of parking.

    Only downside to my place is that it's in Medford. But its OK to be loud and there were no parking issues during my Halloween party with 20+ people. Also a liquor store and plenty of places for food within a mile.
  14.  
    ^^ What are we defining as "Central"? If you inc. JP, Brookine, Watertown, etc...then the Pru prolly is the best place.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    Thinking more along the lines of Medford being a ways out for those coming from JP. I like back bay if someone has a place in the area there. Or south end. I also liked the pru.clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!

    I think I added everyone so far. Please double check and let me know if I missed you.
    Anyone else who wants to participate, please have your name to me by the end of the week so we can assign your secret satan and start planning gifts. I assume we're about 5 weeks out right now. If you have a friend who wants in but isn't on the forum, that's great too.

    I vote Kells for location if it's available.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    +1 vote for kells.

    Is there a minimum/maximum price range for the gift?
  17.  
    Last year I think it was $20 range?

    Also also post gift restrictions! Like so you don't get a wool hat if you're vegan or a cat-fur sweater if you're allergic! But don't be a dick and be like "I can only wear diamonds against my skin"i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    Maggie is also in and she volunteered our huge apartment as well.

    So far, locations to vote for are:
    1) The Pru
    2) The Kells
    3) Fresh House

    (James88 and Alexi's place vetoed due to distance.)

    Please vote and I'll tally.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks
