I am looking for a place to hold a somewhat impromptu gathering.
We are a group of about 15-20 women in our early 50's who all went to high school together and have not seen one another in quite some time. We are looking for a place to have a simple meal (burgers, salads, sandwiches, appetizers) and a few drinks but be able to mix and mingle and catch up. A place where we can hear ourselves talk to each other.
This is for next Tuesday night so it is an advantage, I think, that it is early in the week on a night when places are not too busy and more quiet than a Friday night.
The location should be somewhere along 93 north, 128 between Woburn and Lynnfield (maybe something in the new Market Street?). Or along Rte 28 Stoneham, Reading, North Reading.
We don't want to rent a room nor do we want to make reservations but suppose we could on Monday or Tuesday morning when we have a better idea of the number of people. Best if we could just descend upon a place Tuesday night and take over a large bar area with table seating as well, preferably so we can easily mingle.
Thoughts or recommendations?
