Ski mountain?

Really though, how about a bar with a great beer selection?
Track 84 near the TF Green Airport is a low key, low priced option with a fantastic selection and plenty of parking

There is another barely off off 95 in Rhode Island called Doherty's Ale House.
Loads of taps, family friendly, and sells food. Loads of parking as well.

Sounds cool, but IMHO, something with more than a bar... alcohol plus very long drives isnt a good combo... seeing that we havent done anything in CT for quite awhile... thoughts for a CT locale?

Indoor Karting?

With enough people, we can rent out the track for an hour or two.

Need some more details and opinions please folks.. Personally, Im for doing something in CT,because we haven't in quite a few years.. everything has been Mass and RI.... or if there was a NH Maine or VT idea?.. One thing I didn't like about Braintree is that its pricing is not readily available... that said, Id be more inclined to hit up the one near 395 at the "3 Corners" if we were to do Mass again, maily because its pretty centralized to the region and easy to get to off the highway.

excellent place, a lot of fun, pricey at $20/ride (but that's on par with f1 boston). i prefer the track to f1 boston's. the karts don't like the elevation changes paired with my fat ass. lol

On Track Karting:

Group Discount:
Round up your friends, family, and/or coworkers to take advantage of our group rates. Run 20 or more races collectively and SAVE 20%! That’s only $16 per race with no membership requirement! Best of all, you have complete flexibility in allocating races to the drivers in your group. Head socks, which are required when using our helmets, but are yours to keep and reuse, are $2 each.
(so is that $16 per person x 20 races each? or $16 x 20 races for X many people? ( thats $320 a person or $320 total?)

Reservations are recommended and require a $100 deposit. While our group rate is available to walk-ins, track availability can’t be guaranteed. All races will be billed to a single tab. Head socks may be purchased separately. To make a reservation, please call Wallingford at (203) 626-0464 or Brookfield at (203) 740-8100 during normal business hours.

Want to include event space and/or food and beverage with your event? Check out our Party Packages and Custom Events.

while I cast my vote for RI, it was mainly to split the MA/CT quandary.....as long as it's within a reasonable distance for me, I'm in.....but at 16.00 a race, I may wind up as more of a wallflower......
remember: no matter where you go, there you are.....
