Onion ring rec

i'm meeting up with a "bro" on Tuesday for dinner so I need a place that includes good beer, burgers and awesome onion rings. Mainly the awesome onion rings. Somewhere in Boston proper, south end, Back Bay etc.

Hook a non-bro up!

Jack Daniel's is not Bourbon.

Why bother? How many 1st and only time posters on this thread...

Legal Sea Foods: You've come a long way baby!

Legal is a seafood place.

It's like saying you shouldn't order a burger at a steakhouse

Frank's?

Bastille Day 2014

Does anyone have special plans for Bastille Day? I would like something festive but non-romper room.

Any suggestions?

Gordon's gin

I have seen this recommended on the Spirits board for years and never really believed it wasn't some sort of rot gut swill. I mean its 14.99 for a 750ml!

I finally decided to take a chance this weekend because nothing says Happy Birthday USA like British gin!

It's good stuff! I mean really good. I really really dig it and LOVE the price. Not only is it an amazing value I think it;s just as good as gins that are twice the price.

Thank you CH once again!

With Hilltop almost gone, what is now the most Iconic Boston Area Restaurant?

Yes. I am part of the vast conspiracy to eliminate the ubiquitous delicacy of cod cakes. Because I am ashamed of them

Now I am off to my illuminati meeting!

So we have gone from:

"Just go to any Tavern or Diner in Southie or any diner that dots Route 1 up to Gloucester "

To:

One place in Newburyport

One place where it *might* be an occasional special

One place that you have to order off menu to get it

2 places that you recommend but haven't tried

Padma Lakshmi

Would she let you? She's married after all...

So... is Speed Dog/Super Dog officially gone?

I found Greg's versions noticeably sweeter than Speed's so I bet Larry's versions are closer to the original.

Amaro

Oh well. Maybe things have changed. They used to have the best bourbon/ scotch selection in the area

Amaro

Ball Square liquors is small but has a great selection of bitter spirits

Marty's big buys in Allston. Surprising selection in general with some interesting finds

I haven't been in a while but I bet Downtown liquors in Davis is still good

Little disappointed with Cambridge Wine.

Sav-mor fresh pond is awful. Twin city is better but just the usual suspects

El Centro: Awful. Boston, terrible food city.

Wait. You are saying Portland, Maine is on par with NYC and Chicago food wise.

Is it just as good as Tokyo, Rome and Hong Kong also?

Kirkland Tap!

Doesn't the menu specifically say dishes come out as they are cooked and not all at once?

Great restaurant suggestion

"Any price range is fine."

" Ostra actually looks too pricey"

So umm pick one?

Where do you people-gaze?

Swank,

After reading your posts for at least a year I am convinced it must be a total blast to hang out with you.

Mr. Swank is a lucky cat

How can I make a Mai Tai into a "Holiday Mai Tai?"

Marty's big buys in Allston usually stocks it I think.

What's with this Jell-O Ad? What were they thinking???

One time there was this Tide ad with a guy at a job interview with a stained shirt and he didn't get the job because of that stain and I was like WTF that happened to someone I don't know somewhere in the country and it's so INSENSITIVE of Tide to make fun of a shirt stained job seeker...

The I realized it's just an ad that doesn't affect me at all so I relaxed and had a cookie

Abe & Louie's

Or say single tortilla tacos?

I kid I kid :)
