RE: Final Itinerary: Dinner reservations for Sunday are for 5:00pm at Dolce Vita. It's at 221 Hanover Street. I made the reservation in your name, Becky, and it's for 10 people. If it's going to be less or more people, please call the restaurant to change the number of people. Sorry for repeating myself here (after sending you an email with the same info). I won't be logging into this site any more today. I hope everyone with enjoy the food! See you Sunday :smile:

RE: Tentative Itinerary!: [quote]Friday, if there's anyone staying in Waltham, meet at the Espousal Center and go out to dinner locally.[/quote]
Is this happening?
If there's a meeting place and time, it would be helpful for me to know before Friday.
Peace be with you,

RE: Tentative Itinerary!: I was looking at the itinerary for Sunday - I think you need to make reservations for any restaurant in the North End. Just an FYI . And I'd be happy to help out with this if you need. :smile: I will be attending Sunday's events only.

RE: RE: RE: Espousal Center: I thank Clair for proivding this service to us. She took time out of her vacation to do this. I can attest to the fact that everything
she said about the Espousal Center is true. It is clean, neat and friendly, very spiritual. I have stayed there many times for retreats.
God bless you Clair.

RE: Espousal Center: Hi, thank you for you response. They usually can accomodate more than 30 people, I don't know how full they will be at that time.
They have plenty of single rooms. Waltham is approximately 10 miles West of Boston. My suggestion would be for the folks, if they choose to stay there, take a bus or cab to Alewife Station which is convenient to all points. Best wishes, Andree

RE: Espousal Center: [quote]I looked at the website for the Espousal Center, but the only reference to accommodation was a one-weekend hostel event. Do they regularly take in visitors? Do you know whom to contact for that?[/quote]
At your request, I contacted the Espousal Center. I have stayed there myself, it is clean and basic with beautiful grounds. The chapel
is pretty and they have a gift shop. They regulary have guests. Their mission is devotion to family life. Here is the response I got:
Thank you for your inquiry. We do have some rooms available for the period Sept. 29th thru Oct 2nd. I assume that you would only need overnight accomandations and no meeting room or meals. Our rates are $45.00 for the first night $40.00 each night thereafter.
Our rooms include a bed, table, chairs and a sink. There are two bathrooms located in each wing and each bathroom has three showers. We supply all linens.
If you are interested, please call me at 781-209-3112. We hope to hear from you.
Good luck with this endeavor-Andree

RE: Espousal Center: Dear Becky, Dan and all interested people.
I have contacted the Espousal Center through e-mail. I will let you know if they regularly take in groups and whom to contact .
I recommend the Boston Duck Tours for our visitors. I know people who have done them and really enjoyed them. (For all
those unfamilar with the concept, the Duck Tours are conducted on amphibious vechicles. ) You ride around Boston in them
for the tour and then they go right into the water. For those of you old enough to remember, it reminds me of Chitty, Chitty Bang
Bang. Anyway I will glad to help take some people to the airport provided that they end up staying close to Boston.

RE: The abbey's a no-go: Welcome everyone to Boston! Perhaps the Espousal Retreat House in Waltham Mass, 10 miles from Boston could accomodate you.
They are a very holy group of Monks and priests traditional, conservative but not Ultra-Conservative like the Still River ones.
Anyway, I will try my best to think of activities or places you may want to go. If anyone is interested in the American Revolutionary
War, Arlington, Lexington and Charlestown are full of sites to visit.
