Chicago is through by cam (4.00 / 1) #1 Sun Jan 21, 2007 at 01:20:45 PM EST
I thought that safety call was a bit rough. Chicago was producing turn over after turn over.

They look like a very strong team.

but now that I know you can put dollar signs in tag names ("$evil_project is over"), I might have to use that.

Drew Brees by yankeehack (4.00 / 2) #5 Sun Jan 21, 2007 at 03:07:55 PM EST
(sorry, had to, fantasy football and all that).

One of the players in my league had to use him after McNabb got hurt. He wasn't an exemplary during the regular season by any means.

Also, he's hot but got that receding hairline / big forehead thing going on.

safeties by Kellnerin (4.00 / 1) #6 Sun Jan 21, 2007 at 05:58:56 PM EST
Safeties pissed me the heck off in high school, when we had a quiz in gym on the football unit, and that was one of the questions. A quiz in gym? W. T. F. The teacher rattled off random facts for fifteen minutes in one session, then there were weeks of standing around outside (at least, that was what happened from my point of view), then a freakin' quiz.

Now safeties amuse me for the rareness factor. But I was totally wrong about the Patriots-Colts game. At least it didn't come down to a field goal. Bleh, stupid penalties. And who'd ever have thought I'd be talking football in your diary two weeks in a row?

I think I already offered my not-very-helpful comments on upcoming events in another venue.

I hope you figured out what to do with the WFC entry (it involves the acronym WTFO).

I have the night officially free. I'm in Medford to give a seminar that morning, and thus with car.  If we go out, it's just me.  If it stays chez vous, partner will bring small fry.

Saturday afternoon - will check on babysitting, but should work.

Places by ad hoc (4.00 / 1) #8 Mon Jan 22, 2007 at 07:22:21 AM EST
I'm running out of ideas, but trying to think of something our budget minded Canadian friends might enjoy, I think Redbones might be on the list. It's a kind of hoppin place at night with several whik[e]y selections, according to the menu, and plenty of drafts for those who prefer beer.

There are several good Indian places around, but I'll have to defer to someone else because I don't know of the licensing aspect of any of those. Probably Central or Harvard Sq.

I don't know what's in Harvard Sq any more. I very rarely get north of the river.

There's also the Boston Beer Works, which, while a microbrewery, does have a full bar and respectable food. Or maybe the Cambridge Brewing Co near Kendall Sq.

If someone wants to organize a road trip, there's always Hilltop in Saugus, with the plastic cows and Mmmmmmmeat.

There's Jose's (near Alewife) if you want Mexican. Damn good margaritas. Or, speaking of margaritas, Fajita's and 'Ritas. Is that Mexican place in Harvard Sq still there?

There's always Jacob Wirth.

A little pricier is Bob's after which we could head to Wally's (ask CRwM for his review of Wally's).

If you want to observe Fabulous Fish Friday, there's Jasper White's Summer Shack at either Back Bay or Alewife.

You could also make a return engagement at Milky Way/Bella Luna, but ni's already been there for the Great Boston HuSiMeet of '04.

Mary Chung on Mass Ave. Big round tables for 10 or so, but only a beer & wine license. I've never been there, but heard it's okay.

Lucky Strike for pool, &c.

various thoughts by Kellnerin (4.00 / 1) #10 Mon Jan 22, 2007 at 07:39:57 AM EST
If Boston Beer Works is the place, I vote for the Canal St. location. Alewife if Jasper's. However, none of this is to be taken as an anti-vote for any of the other suggestions, just narrowing down a couple of them.

I think we discounted Jake's due to the Friday singalong factor.

well, their web site by Kellnerin (4.00 / 1) #15 Mon Jan 22, 2007 at 08:53:16 AM EST
claims the existence of a Canal St. location. And I dimly recall seeing one when I used to walk by there a lot, but maybe it's the other place you mention.

Looks doable. There's some vegetarian fare; I'll let the veg.people have a look and decide what they think.

As I've said before by Corky Sherwood (4.00 / 1) #21 Mon Jan 22, 2007 at 02:50:50 PM EST
I'd love to come down but need a place to crash. Is there extra room on your floor?

Also, will the boys be going to the movie on Saturday as well?  Just curious.  :)

Looks like... by ana (4.00 / 1) #25 Tue Jan 23, 2007 at 08:59:19 AM EST
the place will be full of people and critters Friday night. And ni and 256 are moving on sometime on Saturday, not staying for the movie outing. We're up and out of the house very early on Sundays.

Was a decision made? by aethucyn (4.00 / 1) #22 Mon Jan 22, 2007 at 03:50:18 PM EST
The comments seem to indicate that one was, but I'm unsure where.

Sounds like... by ana (4.00 / 1) #23 Mon Jan 22, 2007 at 04:37:10 PM EST
The proposal that seems to meet the constraints is thus: Boston Beer Works on Canal Street (near North Station), Friday night. Say, six-thirty? I count about 9 folks; perhaps 10.

Alright by aethucyn (4.00 / 1) #24 Mon Jan 22, 2007 at 05:05:12 PM EST
Works for me. I just needed it spelled out. I doubt I'll be on time, but I won't be so late either. It's just far enough that I should ideally hop a second subway to get there, or get off at Back Bay and just Orange it up. I did have a recent experiment involving differing commuter routes. Sitting across from me on the commuter rail were two attractive college students from one of the Rhode Island schools. They disembarked the train at Back Bay, I continued on to South Station and then to the Red line. One stop on the Red, and I hit Downtown Crossing, when two attractive college students from one of the Rhode Island schools entered the car. One recognized me and was amused. The other less so. Not much of a story, but it answers some questions involving time it takes to get places. (They also proceeded to get off at Park Street, so I really have no idea where they were trying to get to, but they certainly didn't know their way around).
