Get to Harvard Square. Head south on JFK street past "The Garage" on your left. You will cross Mt. Auburn St. On the Southwest corner is a small open green space: on the opposite corner from JFK is the entrance to Grendel's, below Upstairs on the Square.

Chris Schmidt will be there, hopefully by 7:30, with an eeepc and an OSgeo shirt on.
