I was thinking of putting together a forum meeting in Newport some Saturday this summer. Those of us in the northern part of the state could meet and take the ferry, and those already in Newport could meet us there. Maybe someone in Newport would like to guide a little walking tour and we could retire for drinks somewhere. People could bring their significant others/kids if they want, and join in as much or as little as they want...

Would people be interested in doing this?

Anyone have any ideas on things we should see/do, or a good place for a large group to gather for cocktails?

i think a newport trip would be cool... although the summer is quite busy for newport.

I don't know how the Red Parrot would do accomodating a group, but it's one of the most urban buildings in the state. :P

^ I've been to the Parrot with parties of a dozen or so several times. Given advance notice, they can accomodate groups well enough. If we went there, we'd probably want to go midweek. That place is crazy busy on summer weekends.

I'd certainly second the reccomendation, though. Their menu is literally a book, and the food is quite good. The building is indeed gorgeous.

I think a stop by the Cookie Jar is in order, too.

I would do it I think. I am ready to meet everyone, I am finally over my phobia of social situations.

I'm not, but I still keep hosting stuff anyway. There's something wrong with me I think.

And I'm a habitual wallflower, so we'll make a fine company.

Didn't I hear you were offering to take us all to Newport in your boat?

I think we should borrow the russian sub and sneak in to Newport all stealth.

I'll be there one way or the other... plenty of special events this summer. The Tall Ships Festival in June is supposed to be the greatest one yet!

Which month were you planning on Cotuit?

Sounds good. I'd like to meet some of the UP folks here. I gotta catch up to some of you guys with thousands of posts when I'm not even at 50 yet.

I've spent a lot of time browsing this forum and enjoyed the opinions and input from the great RI forum on this board.
