"Media Chowder: The best damned excuse for Boston-area journalists to go out drinking, period..."

That's the slogan of a new journalists' group that's hosting a happy hour on Oct. 16. Wanting more frequent opportunities to network than Media Bistro has been providing, a group of Boston journalists took matters into their own hands and started Media Chowder. ASBPE Boston board member Matt Kelly is a charter member, and he sent me this info about the October event:
The Media Chowder Society, a happy hour organization for local journalists, writers, and media types, will be meeting again. No agenda, no nonsense.

Please feel free to invite friends and colleagues.

Day/Date: Thursday October 16
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Sidney's Grill at the Meridien Hotel
20 Sidney St
Cambridge, MA 02139
(617) 494-0011

  • cash bar
  • on street and garage parking available
Directions: short walk from Central Square T stop on Red line. (Exit T stop and walk down Mass Ave. about 10 minutes towards Boston. Sidney Street is on the right side of Mass Ave., just past the fire station, behind the Asgard bar).
See area map.
Get driving directions from Google Maps.

No need to RSVP for this one -- just show up. Matt tells me "Media Chowder parties have been known to last until 11 or so," so even if you can't make it early on, it's still worth stopping by.
