Wegmans in Boston?

If Wegs came here I would die of happiness.

Cakes at Yi Soon Bakery

I have been buying birthday cakes at Yi Soon for three years and people seem to really enjoy them. They have smaller ones (will serve about 8-10) ready to go, but you'll have to order one if you need to serve more than that.

Portuguese Market

Roma Seafood is in Union Square in Somerville, across the street from Target. They have all the things you're looking for. The 87 bus from Lechmere stops right in front, or the 86 or 91 buses will drop you off in Union Square, just a short walk.
Make sure you get the spicy linguicia at Roma. It is amazing!

thrifting confessions

What a great thread!
As you can tell my my username, I'm a bit of a thrifting aficionado. In my current batterie de cuisine, I've thrifted:
Silpats, still in the package.
An All-Clad Dutch oven.
A Kitchen Aid hand mixer.
A Cuisinart.
Assorted Pyrex dishes, all my mixing bowls, madeleine molds, the list goes on. All I ever buy new are cookie sheets and racks for cooling or roasting. I never see those in good condition.

Hangar One lime infused vodka

I know Downtown Liquors in Davis Square carries Hangar One, but can't remember if the raspberry is in their selection.

Colbert Ice Cream?

I saw it Saturday night at the Store 24 on Boylston Street, across from the Lenox.

Where to buy rhubarb?

I bought some last night. It's from Chile, via Whole Foods in Central Square.
