Gaming@my house on Sat 9/29!
- Due to Dave's foolish idea to actually have a non-gaming life there is no
SSG this week, so I thought I'd throw open the doors to Casa de La Maison
von Hoffman House for gaming tomorrow night. It will start at 6 and i have
table space for about 10 and many more chairs than that, if anyone would
like to bring a card table, that would be appreciated. Also folks may want
to brings snacks and beverages. If you know ahead of time, please drop me a
line if you're coming so i know how many people to expect, on the other
hand if Saturday night rolls around and you just feel like coming by anyway
Directions (amended since campbell and Matt told me what was wrong with the
I live at 50 Dighton St. in Brighton Center.
By Mass transit:
By Bus: Take the 86 bus from Harvard Square or the 56 bus from Kenmore
Square to Market Street/Chestnut Hill Ave in Brighton Center. Walk up the
hill on Chestnut Hill Ave. Dighton Street is first street on your right,
we're the first driveway on the left. It's a white house and is all the way
By T: Take the Boston College edition of the Green Line to Chestnut Hill
Ave. Walk up over the hill about 1/2 mile, past a fire station on your
right and a court house. Dighton Street is diagonally across the street
from the court house. We're the first driveway on the left. House is all
the way in back.
From Cambridge and Somerville: Take Mem Drive to Soldiers Field Road, get
off at Brighton exit. Go straight-ish off the ramp up a hill and over a
bridge and up another long hill. You are now on Market Street. Stay
onMarket Street until it crosses Washington St and becomes Chestnut Hill
Ave. (There's a Kablooms flower shop on the left hand corner and Mirror
Cafe on the right hand corner). Dighton Street is first street on your
right, we're the first driveway on the left. It's a white house is all the
way in back. Lots of parking on the street.
From out of town:
Coming from the West:
Rt 128 to the Pike. Get off at exit 17 and follow signs to Brighton. This
will put you on Washington Street. Follow Washington for about a mile to a
mile and a half, through Oak Square and up a small hill, past a CVS on your
left. The next set of lights after the CVS is Chestnut Hill Ave. Take a
right there. Dighton Street is first street on your right, we're the first
driveway on the left. It's a white house and is all the way in back. Lots
of parking on the street.
Coming from The East:
93 to the Pike, get off at exit marked "allston/Brighton." Go right off
exit and stay on that road over a small bridge, past the allston sports
depot on your right and then, about a half mile later, there will be a
firehouse on your left. This will put you at an absolute quagmire of an
intersection--proceed straight through onto washington street. Follow
Washington Street about 3/4 to 1 mile past St. Elizabeth's Hospital on your
left, until it intersects with Chestnut Hill Ave. Go Left on Chestnut Hill
Ave., Dighton Street is first street on your right, we're the first
driveway on the left. It's a white house is all the way in back. Lots of
parking on the street.
If you're coming from somewhere else or if these directions make no sense,
drop me a line or call at 617-562-8642.
"Bluto's right, psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these
bastards. Now, we could fight 'em with conventional weapons, but that could
take years, and cost millions of lives. No, in this case, I think we have
to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really
futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part."
