"Kickoff Cocktails" @ Indigo Hotel- All are invited

399 Grove Street, Newton Lower Falls, 617-969-5300

Kicking off our wonderful weekend will be an informal get together at the Indigo Hotel, just up the road from the Riverside MBTA station. You do not need to be staying at the Indigo to attend this get together, it is open to all classmates and spouses (significant others). It is a cash bar on the lower level, and with some luck in the weather department, we will gather inside & outside around the pool around 5:30 PM - look for a familiar face! There is plenty of parking in the hotel garage underneath the building. If you are planning to attend please let us know on the registration form. The hotel is ADA compliant.
