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?

Obviously you're not a golfer.
RI = 7% sales tax
MA = 5% sales tax

i'll be at providence place saturday, but not in line waiting for the opening. ill be later in the day to take a gander at the new store design and the new nanos.

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.

Had a great time. My bro and friend were there at 5am. Others were there earlier, 2am. Got there by 730. Being at the front of the line was fun.

Should be posting photos as I get process them.

Too bad the t-shirts aren't bigger...

Puck, myself and my friend brought them coffee and bagels around 730. I was the tall guy in the Red Sox Shirt, my bro and friend were the two who got there at 5am.

I'll be posting pictures on my photoblog.

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.
