"6/16 Out - wedding"

That was takeout from Not Your Average Joe's, if you're counting. :)

Around 7/25 was "a taste of cambridge". see reference http://awfief.livejournal.com/521761.html.

Wow, and I thought that I was a data packrat... ;-)

How is Joe's Sent Me? I've never been there but it must be good
given how often you go there, although it is close to you.

I'm surprised that Greek Corner isn't on your list
given how close it is to you.

Joe Sent Me is a decent neighborhood bar; the food is a bit limited, but their burgers are excellent (alphacygni can elaborate on that quite a bit). It's close by, a good place to see sports on a big-screen TV, and friendly.

We went to Greek Corner once, I think in the missing fall-of-2006 time period, and weren't very impressed. It's okay, but if we want local food the non-Greek local options are better, and if we want Greek food in its own right we like the Aegean in Watertown better. It doesn't show up on the list because we seem to most often end up there in a late-lunch kind of mode.
