Annual Summer BBQ XIII

Date and Time

    Saturday, July 21, 2007 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm


    John and Shelley Chambers' home


    Our 13th Annual Summer BBQ, held at John Chambers' home in Waltham


    Boston Linux & Unix is holding its thirteenth annual summer BBQ on Saturday, July 21, beginning at 1:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome. Guests are encouraged to bring along something for the grill and the snack table. We're holding the barbeque at the same location as last year: John and Shelley Chambers' home at 33 Cedarwood Avenue, Waltham, MA. 


    Take Route 128 to Exit 26 in Waltham. Get onto Route 20 East, towards Boston; then take the first right onto Cedarwood Avenue. There's a bus stop at Cedarwood, and usually several buses parked there. The Chambers' residence, 33 Cedarwood Avenue, is on the right-hand side of the street. See the Location link above for more details.

Directions to John & Shelley's
33 Cedarwood Ave
Waltham MA 02453

By car from the Mass Pike or 128/I95:
    Take I-95 (128) to US20 (exit 26), which is the next exit north of the Mass Pike. Go one block east (towards Waltham) to the first light. Turn right, and go one block south. It's the pointy red-brown house on the far right corner. It's usually best to park on the side street (Florence), and go up the stairs to the back door or back yard. 
By car via US 20 (from Watertown or Waltham)
    Take 20 west through Waltham center. After about a mile, 20 will fork to the left. (Straight ahead is 117.) Follow 20 another half mile or so, up a long grade. You can't legally turn left on Cedarwood, so watch for a fork just before some lights, with a small sign saying Cedarwood and/or 117, pointing right. This is a small semi-rotary. Drive around it to the lights, go through the lights, and go one block. It's the pointy red-brown house on the far right corner. If you miss the sign for the fork and find yourself at the interchange with I95/128, that's a rotary, too. Go around it, come back, and follow the first set of directions above. 
By mass transit:
    Take the Cedarwood bus (71), which starts at Central Square in Cambridge, and passes through Watertown Center. The west end of the line is at the light mentioned above. 
>From Brandeis:
    If the commuter rail line that stops at Brandeis is convenient, you can get off there and walk across the campus to the Cedarwood neighborhood. There's a gate just left of the water tower, between the parking lot and the Historical Society building. From there, it's two blocks to Cedarwood, turn right, and then 2 blocks to our house. From the rail stop it is about a mile walk, mostly uphill, so I don't recommend it in bad weather. 
>From Natick, Sudbury, Maynard or other western suburbs:
    Take state road 27 to US 20, which is around 5 miles north of the Mass Pike. Turn east, and go about 6 miles until you cross I-95 (128). Go to the next light, turn right, and go one block south. It's the pointy red-brown house on the far right corner.
