If you like to cook, come early & help us pick out the ingredients & cook it. If not, come anytime (before 5, please), and help set the table, pour drinks, & clear up after.

We'll meet at the Farmers' Market at 1:00, and we'll aim to eat our creations around 5:00. Cost is $10 per person for ingredients.

All's Well That Ends Well
Free Shakespeare on the Boston Common

Directed by Steven Maler

For its 16th season of Shakespeare on the Common, the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company is proud to present the comedy All’s Well That Ends Well—Shakespeare’s globe-trotting adventure story of how far one woman will go to win the heart of her beloved. Helena loves Bertram, but marriage is the last thing on Bertram’s mind. With boundless wit and tenacity, Helena pursues Bertram from Paris to Florence and through a maze of obstacles thrown at her by chance, circumstance, and her fiancé’s recalcitrance, finally emerging victorious.

All's Well That Ends
                                      WellThe first hour or so was great - and we had awesome seats (see photo at right)! But then the show got called due to rain. We don't have a rain date. If you want to see it on your own, it's playing through Sunday August 14: Tuesdays-Saturdays, at 8pm; Sundays at 7pm.

Commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War at Fort Warren
Fort Warren SoldiersGeorge's Island, Boston Harbor

To commemorate Fort Warren's role as a training camp for Massachusetts' Union troops during the summer of 1861, Civil War living historians from the Massachusetts 54th Infantry Regiment Company A will lead visitors in marching orders and exercises on Fort Warren's parade ground. These living historians will also run interactive living history demonstrations aimed at revealing the reality of camp life for soldiers during the Civil War.

We'll meet at the gangplank to the 10:00 am Boston Harbor Islands Ferry at Long Wharf (Aquarium T stop). There are also boats at 9 & 11, but your best bet is the 10:00 where Frank will be holding a Cambridge Men's Group sign. The ferry costs $14 ($10 for seniors 65+) & takes about twenty minutes to George's Island.

Bring your lunch (or you can purchase at George's Island small concession stand).

Re-enactment events run from 11am-4pm.

Other groups invited include:
  • North Shore Men
  • Gay Men's Art & Architecture Meetup

Broadway's Funniest Heartbreaker

SpeakEasy Stage Out & About Night (includes post-show party with the cast & other gay groups)

By Geoffrey Nauffts
Directed by Scott Edmiston

A 2010 Tony nominee for Best Play, Next Fall takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. Luke, a devout Christian, and Adam, a non-believer, have been together for four years; yet spiritual differences continue to spark trouble in their relationship. A sudden twist of fate, however, changes everything in this compelling new play that looks at what it means to 'believe' and what it might cost us not to.

Dinner before at Addis Red Sea, and post-show reception with the cast.

7:00 Pub Sing
Last Tuesday Dinner - New Members Welcome

Pub Sing at the Skellig

240 Moody Street, Waltham, MA

Look for us in the back room. Questions? Email

Based on a traditional English pub sing, but with a bit of an American flavor, this session is open to all singers who want to join in, with chorus songs that are easy to learn and fun to sing.  We love the fine old drinking songs and know plenty of sea chanteys and chorus songs from the British Isles and New England, but anything goes as long as it's fun and has a chorus or refrain that people can pick up.  Bring a song to share!  More info on the Pub Sing here.

Getting There & Back:
If you want to travel as a group by train, train #429 leaves North Station at 5:20 PM, stops at Porter Square at 5:30, and gets to Waltham at 5:41. Look for us with a Cambridge Men's Group sign in the last car (the sign will get on at Porter!)

There are three train choices for getting back. I suspect most of us will return on the 9:29 from Waltham.

The DeadQueer Dia de los Muertos

Please join us at
Queer Dia de los Muertos
organized by
Queer Rites at Harvard Divinity School

The idea is to collectively remember and celebrate the queer dead who prepared the way for all of us. This event is open to everyone, regardless of gender or sexuality. Hopefully we all recognize the debt we owe to the queer dead (or those we have reclaimed as such) and want to remember their impact on our lives.
  • Dress up:  The idea is to be very classy dead people (it's not Halloween costumes. It's the dead. Think corpse bride, etc)
  • Paint your face or your friend's / boyfriend's / etc.  (We will have supplies at the event.)
  • Bring something for the altar 
  • Be your amazing selves
  • Get ready to celebrate, commemorate, drink, and dance
The Braun Room is located in Andover Hall at the Divinity School. Here is a map.

And here is the poster for the event.

Two Great Writers at Porter Square Books

Bruce Machart
Benoit Denizet-Lewis
Men in the Making
America Anonymous / American Voyeur
Bruce Machart
"Bruce Machart warns you in the first paragraph of the first story: the dog dies. Ten pages later, you know how; you also suspect that this slim collection of 10 short stories will present more grief, more humanity, more gasps of shock and understanding than you'd expect from only Machart's second book (after the novel The Wake of Forgiveness). And you'd be right." ~~ starred review in Publishers Weekly

Like Richard Russo, Bruce Machart has a profound knowledge of the male psyche and a gift for conveying the absurdity and brutality of daily life and what it means to be a man at the rise of a new millennium with humor and compassion.

Machart's fiction has appeared in Zoetrope: All-Story, Glimmer Train, Story, One Story and elsewhere, and has been anthologized in Best Stories of the American West.

Benoit Denizet-Lewis is a writer with the New York Times Magazine, the former editor of The Good Men Project Magazine, and the author of two books---America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life, about addiction in America, and American Voyeur: Dispatches from the Far Reaches of Modern Life, a collection of his writing.

Benoit often writes about identity, outcasts, and men living on the fringes of our national culture. Since being named named the New York Times Magazine's youngest ever contributing writer a decade ago at the age of 26, he has profiled NAMBLA members, homeless alcoholics, ex-gays, suicidal brothers, hardcore teen Christians, gay middle-schoolers, fraternity boys, and men on the Down Low. Benoit's writing has also appeared in Slate, Salon, Sports Illustrated, Details, and in several anthologies, including The Best American Sex Writing and an upcoming book where gay authors write about their childhoods.
