Planning on moving soon and visiting in a few days.
« on: December 30, 2013, 09:15:46 pm »

I'm planning on moving somewhere around Keene. I've visited chesterfield area a couples times and really like the atmosphere there. I'm going to be driving to Keene Thursday to check out the town itself. I was wondering what suggestions people had for things to do. I'm a huge art and music fan. I'm also going to be taking a peek at the job market and apartment situations while I'm there and was also wondering if anyone had suggestions for that as well.

Welcome to the Forum. Do you have snow tires? A storm is moving into the area late Thursday/early Friday and unless you have snow tires, I don't recommend spending hours driving around. There are 2 events in Keene on Sunday at McCue's on Emerald St. Bitcoin Meetup and Social Sundays. There might be karaoke at Yankee Lanes on Park Ave. on Saturday night but I don't know if that will happen or not. I pointed this thread out to someone else so hopefully you will get some suggestions.

Hello and welcome in advance.  How long are you staying?

Would you like to meet others for lunch or dinner on Thu?

@1DayAtATime: I have all seasons but I live in a part of NY (saratoga) where the climate is basically the same as you guys. My little volvo has gotten me through some harry snow storms. I have no issues with blizzard driving. I have another friend whose a freestater who can't make it Thursday but maybe we will come Sunday as well (we only live about 2 hours directly east). I'll still be there Thursday regardless, I'm very interested in the Bitcoin Meetup and Social Sundays though so I may try and convince my friend to come sunday.

@FTL_Ian: We're not sure exactly when we will be arriving but I estimate the latest to be around 11 or noon and have no limit on how long we can stay (we're famous for long night drives as it is so we'd like to see as much of the area as we can while we're there). Lunch sounds like a really nice welcome to the community. It would be me (Henry) and my sister Alyssa (who is only along for the ride and not moving).

Thanks for the responses guys! Already feeling welcomed.

Hi HenryRW,
Just about every Thursday night there is an open mic at Fritz on Main St in Keene starting at 6:30pm. Fritz specializes in Belgian fries. I think they have the best burger in town, and they also serve beer in a fun atmosphere. I'm not sure if they have music this Thursday. I suggest calling during their normal hours to find out. I'd be happy to meet you there for dinner, and organize some others to come out if you'll be around late in the day. I also suggest for lunch or breakfast: The Works on Main St. They always have local art hanging on the walls which changes often. :)

Henry - it's up to you.  Do you want to do a dinner meetup or lunch meetup?  Is there a food preference you have?  Our default meet-n-greet is the Keene Chinese buffet for lunch, but if you'd prefer a downtown mom-n'-pop business then Marcus has good suggestions.

@Marcus: Fritz sounds like a really cool atmosphere I'll probably check it out regardless of music, I would most likely check that out later in the day and would be glad to meet up. Is The Works also in Brattleboro? If so I've been there before and absolutely loved it (I'm not 100% sure thats what it was called though).

@FTL_Ian: We'll be there just about all day so it's really your preference when you want to meet and I'm open to just about anything as for where to eat.

@1DayAtATime: It looks like me and the other free stater that i mentioned earlier will be there Sunday as well. No guarantee at this point but we're going to try to. One thing that interests us is that Bitcoin Meetup. We're both technology people and have a bit invested in them so it's always good to see some publicity for it (which we get non of out here).

Let's do Fritz then on Thursday.  You pick the time, I'll make an event for it.

Cool. If you have snowshoes, there is a snowshoe event in Robin Hood Park off Roxbury St. in Keene at 3PM. I'm sure everyone is welcome at the event.

P.S. The reason for the snowshoe event is to have fun with the snow. The snow that is still predicted to hit the area. Throughout MA, NH and I assume other places in New England such as southern VT, school has been cancelled for the rest of the week. Just a heads up.

@Ftl_IanHey Filtz had a sign saying they are closing at 430. Is there another good place to meet?

Alternately, we could go to Local Burger across the street or the Keene Buffet on West St.
