    • ryanlerch (local) Confirmed? (Y/N)
    • Emichan (local) Confirmed? (Y/N)
    • Name (location, role) Confirmed? (Y/N)
    • others?
  6. Other considerations
    • Westford is not very walkable. We could save on car rentals by booking everyone at the same hotel and having folks go together. Maybe one or two minivans instead of multiple smaller rentals. Mizmo is local but has a small car with a carseat so it will be hard for her to help on the transportation front; Ryan is local but does not have a car. Transportation from airport could be taxi or bus. (need more research)
  7. Potential social events

  8. Getting around

Snacks/Beverages: Red Hat provides free snacks and beverages in the building kitchenettes.

Lunch: Red Hat has a large cafeteria, prices for lunch range $5-10 / person. There is a deli across the street, Metro Deli, where prices range from $7-15 / person.


Exception Chipotle, anticipating $16/head for dinner. Chipotle will probably be closer to $10/head. Options include:

  • India Palace, Chelmsford Nice atmosphere, reasonable prices, good for large groups, quiet in evenings (Good for talking)
  • Bamboo, Westford Asian fusion, good atmosphere, room for large groups
  • Burton's Grill, Westford American. Haven't been. [Emichan: I have, it's tasty, but fairly pricey, and veggie options are basically pasta or salad.]
  • Karma, Westford Asian fusion, room for large groups (can reserve private room too), great sushi
  • Chipotle, Westford Cheap Mexican food, good, fresh, fast. In the evening, probably won't be too busy.
  • 99 Restaurant, Westford Walkable from office, across the street and down the hill, but food not so great. Few veggie options.
  • Thai Jasmine, Chelmsford Excellent Thai food, reasonable prices


If you want funding from Red Hat, ask the Community Architecture (old page) -- (new page) team. If you can find other ways to fund your FAD, that's great too!
