ISO Troegs Nugget Nectar

The Wine Emporium on Tremont still had a few bomber size bottles the other day, worth calling (they would hold 1-2 for you)

As did Whole Foods Cambridge

North End Rehearsal Dinner

Are there any spots in the North End that could accommodate around 30 people for a rehearsal dinner? I know very little about whether any spots have rooms to rent or might take a private reservations for the entire space for one evening.

Any feedback is great, I am helping someone else who is independently searching around - hoping I could hone in on a few options

Spring 2014 Openings and Closings

I have heard all positive reviews thus far - but that obnoxious guy in the YouTube videos could ruin it all for me.

As someone who lives very close to the Wink & Nod space - I will say, it's impressive that they have had lines out the door every night, though super annoying for a resident. The sidewalk is loud and smokey, which I would be willing to bet gets called out sooner than later by the residents of 3 and 5 Appleton.

The doorman is a nice gentleman, always looking dapper, but it's a little much imo. I feel like we're in denial it's Boston, not NYC...

mystery dinner

Loris83 did you ever have any luck with this? I have been asked to research the Boston area for Murder Mystery Dinner spots - I vaguely remember seeing a Groupon for one at Bell in Hand - not sure anywhere else?

Merrill & Co.

Went to dinner last night:

Burger was very good
Crab Dip was very "crabby" which I liked, though my wife thought was a bit too "seafoody"
Deviled Eggs - Hard to screw up, but were a nice starter
Dessert - Nutella Pie - so-so, crust was a bit burnt

Overall - this place will be a fun spot come warmer weather, especially with the patio space.

My only fear is that next to it, there will be a strong Wink & Nod smoking contingent...as last night there was a group of staff outside creating quite a cloud - that will become unpleasant quick.

They do - I walked by and looked in, probably keeping it as a separate daily updated list. They had probably 6-8 taps

Merrill & Co.

Merrill & Co. opened officially last night at 5:30 - thought it would be interesting to leave a thread out here for initial feedback as people go. I am planning on either tonight or tomorrow, stopping in for a drink and a few apps.

Lonestar Beer in MA?

I love sarcastic replies. Knowing it's not high quality beer, that's not the intent (though it's tastier than Bud Light or the other big names).

Lonestar Beer in MA?

I know you can find Lone-star beer in many tex-mex places (i.e. Border Cafe) .... anyone know of a store that might sell it though? Need it for a party this weekend.

Thanks

Wink and a Nod has their awning up and a sign posted "Wink & Nod training here" sounds like things are moving pretty quick

Chicken cheesesteak?

In what I will say is to be the only thing I enjoy from them... The Chicken Philly from Emilio's in the South End is pretty good if looking for that unhealthy, quick option.

Hunt for the Best Calzone

I always go to PICCO - I think the bread is the best.

Lox & Bagels

I haven't seen any recent threads about the topic - so here's a new one:

Sonsie's Lox & Bagel brunch dish is delicious
Davio's to Go does a pretty solid one, served as a full bagel sandwich

Curious - what unique things make for a great Lox and Bagel? It seems so simple, yet there have been plenty that just leave me nauseous.

Thanks everyone - Ended up at Silvertone for a decent night out - albeit they order their burgers well-done - yikes

Pizza and beer...

PICCO has to top this list...I can't think of anything more appropriate..less the non-pitchers of beer...and probably higher cost...oops

Saturday Dinner Recommendation

All awesome rec's - thanks everyone. I should have added they are late 50's so not concerned with noise etc... more just the menu and price points.

I will take some time and look at the menus for the places below.

Saturday Dinner Recommendation

Back with another question for CH's

Saturday night dinner with the folks - but they might be the two least daring diners out there AND don't see value in the standard "city" priced entrees (ie. $20 and up)

Are there any unique recommendations out there with a fairly american fare menu. They are the chicken finger basket/burger/fish & Chips types... but I want to avoid a Joe's American or PICCO type spot. Looking to show them a more Boston neighborhood type spot in any of the Boston neighborhoods (would love to avoid the North End)

Dinner would be at 6, so I am assuming I can get into anywhere at this point.
