Knox’s humom here. We have exciting new updates about North East Shibapaloozameetup. A lot of the people attending are #twibas but we want to extend the invite to allshibas and shiba owners/lovers! So please tell everyone you know!
We have selected the place for our meet up. It’s called Crate Escape in Belmont, MA. (http://www.crate-escape.com/) It is all fenced in and has lots of room for the sheebs to run around and even a large fence divider INCASE we need to separate a dog/dogs. We will have the place to ourselves for 2-3 hours. There will be food and drinks for the humans and obviously water and noms for the sheebs. There will be a doggy door giving access to an outdoor area that is also fenced in! So hopefully the weather will be wonderful!
I have attached a few photos just to give you a slight idea of the area (outdoor+indoor)
Right now we are feeling out all attendees for a specific date. We are deciding between 3 weekends: 4/28-29, 5/5-6, and 5/12-13. If you are not on the email list yet and are interested in attending PLEASE email me and tell me what weekend(s) work/don’t work for you and I will try to keep everyone’s schedule in mind to choose the best date. The more the merrier so I will accommodate as best as possible!
I sent an email out last week giving a link to some pet friendly hotels. But @iamkaiju’s humom was nice enough to help out and go even further to help the people traveling by suggesting some hotels/rentals close to the meet up area but still close to Boston and other great places:
Here are some accommodation options that I have found…
There are more Cambridge options included here only because the meetup will most likely be in Cambridge, which is across the Charles River from Boston.

The town of Brookline is quite close and nice, too. Or, if you don’t mind driving in, North Shore towns are beautiful. Amanda lives in one of those towns.
If you see any place you want to consider, please don’t hesitate to ask us about the town/neighborhood.
Also… please check out this website too for additional accomodations: http://www.bringfido.com/lodging/state/massachusetts/
Sorry for the long post but I am trying to get the message out there as much as possible. Please spread the word! We currently have Shibas coming from NY, NJ, MA, NH but we want to make this big so let’s do it!
For those interested please get back to me via email to let me know which dates work best. I will update as much as possible about any news and/or changes. My email is BriggaBaby at gmail dot com
Also any recommendations for other activities are welcomed! We could also do a picnic if the weather permits.
A big thanks again to @iamkaiju’s humans for helping out. We are so excited to make this happen!
