    Is annyone planning on attending? I think i'm gonna go. (85% sure)
    Where is it located in the mall? Also what's the tax in R.I. I might buy myself a new present (2g nano) I'm debating if the tax will be cheaper in RI or in MA?

    I think RI has 7% sales tax. Do you know what date the store is opening?

    Having left Providence in the dust this past June, I don't think I can bring myself to go back, even for such a noble cause.

    I'll be in Maine this weekend, anyways. I need a rocky beach to shiver on.

    If anyone is on LJ I've started an New England Apple Users Community, here.

    Mostly just to keep in touch with people and such. Feel free to post pictures from the opening.

    Also, my bro heard Boylston St Store is a go. I'll probably be going to that one since it's so close.
