A couch around December 2-6
Posted October 21st, 2011 - 6:37 am by from New York, United States (Permalink)
Hi guys,

I know most CS community groups discourage surfing requests, but I had to throw in the towel after several searches. I am looking for a couch any or all nights of December 2-6 while I am hoping to attend a conference. I am specifically looking for a location that is convenient to the Back Bay near the Boston Common or close to a T stop that gets me there.

The plusses for my potential host include, most obviously, that I live in the West Village of NYC and I enjoy hosting people. The downside is that I smoke and will be asked to be pointed to the most appropriate outside venue. I'm used to it; I live in NYC.

I have been to Boston 3 times, but I still don't feel like I know the city. This is the other part of the match that is difficult. I would like to find a host who would be interested in going out on the weekend and showing me around. I think I have hit most of the gay bars and cultural sights in Boston, but I just don't get the vibe yet. I would hope to find a host who is as passionate about Boston as I am about NYC. Show me your perspective, please. And yes, I do know lots of places in the Boston area. I walked 20 miles through myriad places in Boston and Cambridge last year from dusk til dawn in the Overnight Walk to raise funds for suicide prevention. (My brother killed himself last year.) So I have seen much of the city, but I still don't feel it the way I expected.

Anyway, if after you have reviewed my profile, please contact me by email via my profile page. If we don't click, but you think you might know someone I might click with, please pass along the message.

Happy autumn, and happy couch surfing!
