30th Birthday - Somewhat more specific request

My first choice is the private room at Night Shift Brewing - but...

What other options are there in Boston/Somerville/Cambridge for say 15-25 guests ... where there might not be a room charge? I am not thinking sit down.

Ideally, get some passed apps going around, drinks, and keep it very simple. It's more to get people together in a fun setting, less about the food.

Grown Up Bar in Providence RI

Any updates to this? Where to go for a great, dirty martini?

One dinner, Providence

Done the water fire in the past - combined with Federal Hill dinner.

I should say, it will be a Friday evening.

Cuisine - looking for just really great dishes, open to all...Gracie's has been my lean so far...if that sort of gives you the "what we're looking for"

One dinner, Providence

Looking for a recommendation for a (romantic) date place in Providence. Trying to avoid federal hill. Coming down from Boston, please give me your best recommendations.

Blackbird Donuts?

I don't understand the "it's expensive" comments I have heard from most. A breakfast sandwich and coffee would be $5 minimum anywhere, even coffee and donut from DD.

$3 donut, that is huge, filling, etc...delicious and a coffee would put you out $5-6 ... to me that's average.

If you're buying a dozen donuts for the office, yes, it's going to be a higher tab - but just buy 6 and cut them up

Merrill & Co.

I just don't know how you fail in that location. I know they were trying to cater the menu to match the casual atmosphere. I love it. I think it is what it is...a place to pop in for some food and drink. It's not a date night spot.

Merrill & Co.

I for one continue to love what they are doing at Merrill & Co

But... upon seeing this deal on livingsocial.com are they in trouble? Usually that spells some negativity

Quick Question (Assembly Row)

Does anyone know if American Fresh Taproom (Assembly Row - Slumbrew) is year round - or was that intended to only be an open-air beer garden? I haven't been out there yet, and can't seem to find it online.

New Post: What's Good in Dedham

Hoping to get a CH board going on restaurant options in the Dedham area. No clue what's there, other than the Legacy Place type stuff

Post Baptism Brunch/Lunch Ideas?

Despite some less than stellar comments, I took the advice of Park and am signing a contract with them. They can offer a decent package, so here's hoping to a nice event.

If not, I have plenty of (food) & drink to consume to make it feel less painful

Post Baptism Brunch/Lunch Ideas?

It's not me trying to be "cheap" but typically if I owned a big enough house, it would be a party afterwards. I don't love the idea of a celebration ending with a $1500 tab for us new parents.

Cambridge Common is a personal favorite - was thinking that originally - just not sure if it looks the part. BUT I can break the conventional thinking and make it more fun for everyone. Menu is priced right, drinks are cheap enough etc...

Park looks like a solid find. Thank you - never even knew it existed

Best food in Boston with kids?

I dont want to be buying $20 plates for everyone. Was hoping to get into a prix fix brunch/lunch, or keep it to a small under $20 menu. They can get their own drinks

Has anyone had a chance to try this truck? Curious any reviews

I should add - the address is 11 Garden Street for the event - but for the Brunch/Lunch - if driving somewhere close works best, and if parking is an option, that works.

Post Baptism Brunch/Lunch Ideas?

We are starting to plan a date for our new baby's baptism, should be mid-October (near Harvard Sq)

Thinking about Parking (nightmare for out of towners) and cost - do you have any recs on places near by? I am hoping to keep costs fairly cheap considering we're footing the bill... but for this post, let's say space for 20-30 people (private room not necessary) and maybe passed apps or moderate off the menu ordering ... Excluding booze

Low Alcohol IPA?

Founder's All Day IPA
Notch's Left of the Dial
Evil Twin Bikini Beer

those are 3 I would recommend

Jul 08, 2014

Bikini Beer--Evil Twin Brewing--2.7% IPA

I am a big fan, as it takes the idea of almost a session beer to the next level. This is the perfect beach beer or just a nice cookout. You can get flavor without becoming hammered...and you accomplish the avoidance of the major "lite" beers.

Post dinner drinks in South End/Theater district/chinatown?

My fault on seeing the food only. Though, at 10 PM any single app and drinks to me is still business.

A table and $100 in drinks, is still more desirable
