The Community Canteen
The Community Canteen is a concept in beta. For now, we are a membership-driven monthly dinner event that hopes to test out the idea of subscription-based dining. Sort of like a CSA, with a social mission: to bring people together over shared meals. We are working with Something GUD to bring the best of our local food chain to our community of eaters in an approachable, affordable manner, and make new friends along the way. We are about Good Food. Amazing People. Together. For Supper #1, our theme was Survival. And guess what, we did! Our first test run was a success, and we’re excited to launch a monthly Tuesday night “supper series” with the Community Canteen for the fall. Mark your calendar for the following 3 dates: Supper # 2: 10/28 Family Game Night. For our second attempt, we’re taking a cue from our friends on Dimick St. – so bring your #Gameface. And maybe your favorite board/card/dice game to share. Come for the food, stay for the brews, and the Boggle. Supper #3: 11/16 FRIENDSGIVING! : Join the Community Canteen & SomethingGUD for a good ol' turkey dinner. Farmers Ryan and Tom from Lilac Hedge Farm will be there to take part in our friendship feast. Supper #4. 12/16 tbd. December feels like a long ways a way, and more great ideas will crop up in the meantime. We hope it involves milk + cookies. There are two separate "ticket types" that you can select. You can choose to support us by stopping by for a single supper, or you can become a true member of our community for the fall, and hop on board for all 3. Not only does your initial support give us the first push we need to make our concept happen, but also enables us to better predict costs (which we are actively working to lower), refine our concept -- and get to know you better! Hope to see you there! Canteen Kid - $5.00 Single Supper - $25.00 Canteen Bundle - $65.00

Harpoon Helps Grateful Harvest Beer Dinner

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT! PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME TO THE WAITLIST. 

If you’re like us, there’s nothing better than a delicious meal with friends and family to celebrate all that we’re thankful for. We take that back – it’s better when we do it for a cause that’s especially important to us. With that in mind, we invite you and yours to join us for the Harpoon Helps Grateful Harvest Beer Dinner, a Harpoon-style Thanksgiving meal in our Boston Beer Hall on Sunday, November 9th to raise funds for the Greater Boston Food Bank!

What is a “Harpoon-style” Thanksgiving? Well, let’s just say there may or may not be Harpoon beer used in making and baking many of the components of the meal. And Harpoon employees across departments have volunteered their time to serve the meal. The Goodtime String Band will be here to entertain guests with toe-tapping bluegrass and fiddle tunes. And last but not least, there will be BEER! We’ll have our extensive beer lineup on tap in the Beer Hall. Harpoon Grateful Harvest Ale, our seasonal beer brewed with locally harvested cranberries, will be the featured beer of the evening.

Tickets are $60 each. Price includes turkey & all the trimmings and 3 Harpoon beers. 100% of the ticket sales will go to the Greater Boston Food Bank.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. Space is limited and will sell out quickly. You may purchase a maximum of eight tickets per person. On the day of the event, please bring a print out of your ticket to the Harpoon Brewery or show your tickets from your mobile device, along with your photo ID! Sorry, no refunds. No exceptions. Sales are final. 21+ only.

We hope to see you at the brewery on Novemeber 9th!

Leadership Development 2015

 

Invest in developing your leadership team and secure the future success of your dealership/distributorship!

 Highlights of the Currie Leadership Development Program:

Attend four quarterly workshops during 2015

Participate in monthly coaching calls 

Develop networks with participants from other industries

Gain Operational Knowledge around the Financial Model

Learn advanced leadership behavioral skills 

 

  The Currie Leadership Development Program

 

  One of the themes that consistently arises at all of Currie Management Consultants, Inc. dealer/distributor group meetings is how to develop leaders. At times it is your identified successor(s) of your dealer/distributorships, or it might be your current managers that have leadership potential.  Many times the answer to developing these individuals is to bring them to dealer or distributor group meetings.  What can happen is they become lost, or worse, frustrated with this environment.  They lack the fundamental business knowledge or confidence to take part in the process or are afraid to broach subject matters that may seem trivial to the principals in the room.

 Currie looks at the development of a dealer/distributor leader on two levels. The first level is basic business knowledge. This knowledge is specific to your industry and to dealerships/distributorships which includes knowing the Currie Financial Model with all the details. Operational Best Practices are also introduced at each of the workshops.

 The second level of development centers on the leadership behaviors that drive the execution of the Currie Financial Model. The leadership behaviors that are taught are the building blocks of great leadership. They are: mental agility, interpersonal finesse, change mastery, and goal orientation. The Currie process combines the knowledge of the Financial Model with leadership behaviors in an environment where they can safely begin to develop.  The program also includes several in-depth assessments for each participant in order to create the self-awareness as the leadership skills emerge and grow.

 Our response to your demand for developing leaders is a forum by which we educate and coach these leaders through a series of meetings (each quarter for a period of one year) and monthly coaching calls.  We are happy to report that over 90 managers/leaders have completed the Currie Leadership Development Series.

 

 

 The fee for the Leadership Development Program is $6,000 per participant.  A $1,000 deposit is required for registration.  Currie Management will then invoice your company for $1,250 per each of the four quarters of the program. 

 These fees include the four workshops, monthly coaching sessions, and any individual coaching that is necessary.

The first meeting is held at the offices of Currie Management Consultants, Inc.  Subsequent meetings are scheduled in locations that are decided upon by the participants.  Currie Management Consultants handles all meeting arrangements for the participants.

 

 Expenses associated with the meetings will be shared and billed similar to that of our Best Practices groups (fixed costs based on membership and variable costs based on attendance.)

Please feel free to contact us at 508-752-9229 with any additional questions!

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU

 

You Can't Take It with You is a comedic play in three acts by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. The original production of the play opened at the Booth Theater on December 14, 1936, and played for 837 performances. The play won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.


OVERVIEW
At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before you realize that if they are mad, then the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. Tony, the attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore house on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by Mr. and Mrs. Kirby, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores find it hard to understand Alice's view. Tony knows the Sycamores live the right way with love and care for each other, while his own family is the one that's crazy. In the end, Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores after he happens in during a visit by the ex-Grand Duchess of Russia, Olga Katrina, who is currently earning her living as a waitress.
