I have my question about Pentecost which concerns with the commemoration of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples of Christ after the Resurrection. Where were the Apostles when the Holy Spirit came upon them at Pentecost? Were they in the upper room or perhaps in the dining?

    Here are some details about, the Pentecost, and Jesus:
    In Acts 1 of the Bible, just before the resurrection of Jesus into heaven, he informed his followers, regarding God's promised gift of the Holy Spirit, which he informed them was to be given to them in the form of a powerful baptism. He sternly advised them to stay in Jerusalem till the time they received the gift of the Holy Spirit, which will enrich them to successfully live into the world and be his witnesses.
    After the passage of few days, on the eve of Pentecost, Jesus disciples together gathered at one place, all of a sudden, the thunderous sound of a mighty wind came down from heaven, and the strange thing about this wind was that literal tongues of fire were resting on them. It is quoted in Bible, "All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them." The crowds, who were the spectators of this event and were hearing them speak in different language, felt that the disciples were speaking under the influence of wine. Then Peter rose and preached the Good News of the kingdom, hearing this news almost 3000 people immediately accepted the message of Christ! On that very day they were baptized and formally entered in to the family of God. The book of Acts also records the supernatural transcending of the Holy Spirit that started on Pentecost.
