Food shopping at TJ Maxx/Home Goods

Lately, I've been able to find some good deals on items like DL Jardines salsa. I've seen them at Williams-Sonoma for $7-$8 a jar, but TJ and HG sell them for $3.99, and they are excellent, especially their raspberry and pineapple flavors. I've also noticed that Stonewall Kitchen items occasionally make an appearance there, and Martha Stewart cake mixes are now coming in - could that be because she switched from Kmart to Walmart (that's a travesty for another post)?

Anyone else have favorite brands that they buy discounted at TJ or HG that I should try? Jams, pasta sauces, teas, etc?

The Best South Shore Bar Pizza

I agree with Town Spa in Stoughton. We used to go there before a movie at the Stoughton Cinema Pub (since closed).

I would also recommend Union Brewhouse in Weymouth, near the intersection of Rt. 53 &18. Great local place with 99 beers and terrific pizzas and other bar food as well.

Sports bar - South Shore area

With football season coming up, I'd like to find a sports bar near Quincy/Weymouth/Braintree area that has abundant televisions and good bar food. I've tried Stadium in Southie and The Fours in Quincy Center, but they were not quite right for various reasons. Stadium's service and food were somewhat lacking, and The Fours atmosphere wasn't right - they play music unless the Patriots game is on, and their menu isn't great.

Any suggestions?
