Tequila and Coke? WT?

I tried Cuervo Black and coke and I liked it. It was a really unique drink.

and I'm not really a big fan of Tequila. Unless it's Don Julio.

Am I likely to dislike all whiskey?

I don't think anyone likes whiskey at first. But once you aquire the taste it can be a great winter drink.

Plus drinking it makes you appear sophisticated... sometimes.

Anyone else use alcohol as cough syrup?

I use scotch for a sore throat. I'll drink 1-2 glasses at night if my throat is really sore, then the next morning I'm usually fine.

Bad News for Bad Booze

Zima is the equivalent of drinking battery acid on your stomach. You'll get sick before you even get a buzz on.

First few dates...

My go to first date place is Bouche on Newbury St. It's a French place that is surprisingly cheap and has a great menu and atmosphere.

Recommendations near Harvard Square and Kendall Stations

Border Cafe has some of the best Mexican/ Cajun food in Boston in my opinion.

New restaurant on corner of Mass Ave and Comm Ave?

I live one block down from there too and from what I hear there are still no plans for any new restaraunts. Didn't the "Space for Lease" sign go back up?

They have to put a restaraunt in there at some point. They still have a bar, outdoor seating, and dessert case. It's just too nice a place for any other type of shop.

Foodie itinerary for Copley Square- what do you think?

Typhoon has awesome moderately priced sushi and would be great for lunch or dinner. Cool atmosphere too. Way better than the overpriced Haru that I'm sure someone will recommend.

Cheesecake Factory..I am being forced to go

Dont get the fish tacos.

Bland, messy, and overpriced if I recall correctly.

Why does organic milk taste "richer" than non-organic milk?

on a related note... Why does organic milk tend to have a longer shelf life than regular milk? I used to work in a supermarket and I noticed this all the time. Wouldn't the milk full of preservatives last longer?

Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese

Chop up a tomato for a little extra extra color and substance.

Unique Pizza Toppings

No, we're just smarter and more creative than the rest of the country.

I thought this was common knowledge.

How To Make a Proper Black and Tan

Wow... just wow.

Looks like I have my work cut out for me. Guess I'll start at the top and work my way down.

Beer Hangovers

The worst beer related hangover I ever had came at the hands of Rolling Rock. It was back in college before I knew any better.

More recently me and some friends were putting down a few pitchers of Stella Artouis and that gave me one hell of a hangover.

Unique Pizza Toppings

I feel like this topic has probably been done to death but at the same time I really don't care and I'd rather get input from the Boston portion of the community anyway.

I'm obsessed with these new wheat flatbread pizza crusts I found recently. Of course the name escapes me right now, they're like a healthier version of Boboli pizza crusts you see everywhere.

I'm really into weird and different pizza toppings and I was wondering if anyone had any cool ideas? These aren't very unique, but these are the pizzas I've made thus far:

- Chorizo & Pineapple
- Buffalo Chicken
- Thai Style Shrimp

Any other ideas would be great! The weirder the better. Dessert pizzas are also welcome.

Hot sauce + food pairings

Not a hot sauce... but the other day I had a bagel with jalapeno cream cheese. The combination of the jalapeno and iced coffee is really unique and in my opinion delicious.

Really Crappy Unhealthy Disgusting Toe-curling Junkfood!

Chex Mix, Cheezit Party Mix, and kind of snack party and I'm there.

I could also eat a garbage bag full of movie theater popcorn if no one tried to stop me.

Whats the point of drinking coffee without caffeine? You might as well slap Juan Valdez in the face.

Portuguese Linguica vs Spanish Chorizo

My grandmother is Portuguese so I've grown up on linguica. We've always had two varieties: Hot and Sweet.

Now, if I'm not mistaken, the HOT linguica was actually chorizo and the SWEET was linguica.

Where to eat near Symphony Hall

Conor Larkins is a cool little bar/restaurant with nice American food. Burgers, sandwhiches and the like. I was surprised at how good it was. Really close to Symphony.

Stealing Bar Glasses

I can't remember the name of the bar but all of their pint glasses say:

"I stole this glass from "This bar".

Hilarious. I don't know why I haven't stolen any yet. Probably because I dont know where it is.

Good talk.

Best Boston Burger

I really want to try 5 Guys, but I live in Back Bay with no car.

I'll have to find someone with a car to help me out. Perhaps I can bribe them with a burger.

Best Boston Burger

I heard that Flat Patties is the closest thing to an In and Out Burger you'll find in MA.

Is that true?

Also thanks everyone! My list is growing by the second.
