Searching for a great Hot Dog as winter winds down.

My favorite if Fred's Franks or Speed, but another year round local option is The Dockside in Chelsea (across from Market Basket). They have 2 jumbo Pearl franks with fries for $7 on the menu.

New Half Sour Pickles at my local Market Basket.

The Woburn Market Basket was also down to just the Bread And Butter flavor.

New Half Sour Pickles at my local Market Basket.

I picked up some at the Chelsea Market Basket, and also liked them better than Ba-Tempte. Very briney.

Lobster, live and kicking... $3.99lb, Market Basket, Woburn.

I agree and I always buy live, just mentioning what I overheard from other customers. Apparently some people love lobster but can't handle personally killing it. One buyer talked the fish-counter-man into removing the rubber bands before steaming it, to avoid getting a rubber taste on his lobsters.

Lobster, live and kicking... $3.99lb, Market Basket, Woburn.

I picked up 2 lobsters at the Chelsea Market Basket, 3.99/lb and they do have a numbering system at the fish counter but a 45 minute wait to get it steamed.

Help! I need to send a really nice fruit basket to the Stoneham/Medford area

Pairings in nearby Winchester can put together a very nice gift basket, and deliver it for free. They don't have fruit, but you can get wine, cheese, crackers, candy, cookies, jam, etc.

The New Brown Jug - Beware!

I stopped in to check out the new location last Sunday, and it was packed. I couldn't get a seat at the bar, so went over to the New Bridge Cafe, which was empty. I went back a few days later to pick up a Pizza for take out. It was great, but I could tell they are still working out the kinks.

Perfect Manhattan

When I was a bartender many years ago, we would of course use sweet vermouth in all Manhattans. The exception was if someone ordered a Southern Comfort Manhattan, we used dry vermouth, due to the sweetness of the Southern Comfort.

Best Value Store Bought Champagne or Sparkling Wine?

The Gruet is a great choice for domestic sparkling wine under $20, but if you want real champagne for about $35 per bottle, I recommend the Duval-Leroy Brut, which you can get at The Spirited Gourmet in Belmont or Winchester.

Venetian Moon Reading- What a joke!

Your experience at Venetian Moon is typical of what they are like. I used to go there every few months only because I worked nearby and had few other options. Every time I visited I swore it would be my last time there.

The food, wine and martinis are fine, but the attitude and service are indeed a joke!
