Hello from the East Coast!

Hello from the East Coast!

Postby meaghanq » Mon Jan 30, 2012 5:47 pm

Hey All,

Decided to make an appearance on this message board initially due to the ticket "situation", to voice my opinion, but now just to connect to other Burners.
I attended the Burn in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2010, 2011 and hopefully again this year.

I'm from Cambridge MA, and have camped with people from around here as well as folks from NY, CO, CA and beyond.

Looking forward to coming back and making some champaign cocktails for my fellow burners in our video arcade. Last year was an awesome and transformative year for me as I embarked on on whole new life upon coming back from the playa. I've begun to look at BM as the beginning of my year, and the catalyst for many transformations. Also, yeah, it's fucking fun.

So nice to meet you all, hope to catch some of you on the playa (fingers crossed).

Welcome to eplaya. So you're from the People's Republic of Cambridge, eh? Make yourself at home here and go Patriots!

Good to see some other Boston area people around; I'm down in Jamaica Plain myself. You've certainly got more playa experience than I do!

Posts from a looong time ago on the board suggested that there was a semi-regular burner meetup over at the Cambridge Beer Company; do you know if that's still going on?

Hi jkisha and shambala!

@theCryptofishist People's Republic indeed! Boston and Berkeley seem to be sister cities in a lot of ways.

@AbundantChoice - I am pretty sure it still happens, Tuesday evenings I believe. I haven't been in a VERY long time.

There are a lot of us hiding around here! Yes, every Tuesday night they have a meet up. I think this weeks is cancelled however.

My father got his degree in one city and taught in the other. Of course, there's always Cambridge, England, where I spent a year when I was 8 and 9, and I left a piece of me there. Sometimes I still long for it...
