When was the last time you were here, because I can tell you that as someone in their mid 20's, I have an absolute fucking blast in harvard, central, davis, and union squares. They're all in cambridge/somerville.
Harvard has: Park, russell house, alden and harlow, the beat hotel, grendel's den (divey), charlies (divey), hong kong (divey) and a few cool music venues.
Central: Brick and mortar, a really awesome moroccan place I forgot the name of, green street grille, central kitchen, etc.
Davis: Saloon, the painted burro, the foundry, five horses, etc.
These are all places with good food and better drink.
Central does have homeless people, but most cities do. I saw tons in NYC and Philly.
Last time was about 2 years ago. The amount of homeless people back then was insane. The absolute amount is of course less than NYC, but it's so concentrated. I think there were like 10 or 20 in front of the CVS, all yelling and shouting if you didn't have any spare change. It gets quite annoying if you walk by there every day, there's only so much money/food you can give. There were regular emails about (sexual) assault and theft as well.
I'm not a big fan of dive bars, so that might be why I didn't like it as much. Didn't like the rules about no drinking in the courtyard of the dorms either, but I guess the US isn't as liberal as the UK. Anyways, when I went out I mainly went to Boston, and during the weekends I took the bus to NYC for $15. Both are lovely cities, and much more fun!post #12231 of 374979/23/14 at 11:13amQuote:
Safe, yes (most likely). She will also get a lot of crap from people. Boston has one of the more obnoxious fan bases in the US, so I think sending her out with a Yankees jersey is a really dumb idea (though I also suspect you are joking about this).post #12232 of 374979/23/14 at 11:20amQuote:
I used to live on Salem and Prince in the north end and modern is way betterQuote:Originally Posted by The Noodles

I need some places to visit and eat with wife.
Wednesday - (after 5 pm)
Thursday - (after 5 pm)
Friday - (after 5 pm)
Saturday - (all day)
Places to eat:
James Hook & Co
Deuxave - seems too fancy place for us
Atlantic Fish Company
Places to visit:
Harvard (not me. I am too dumb to even visit)
Check out Neptune in the north end. It's a bit of a novelty but I like the butcher shop in the south end too (and that's the best food neighborhood anyways)Quote:Originally Posted by Monkeyface
I wouldn't spend more than an hour in Cambridge/Harvard. I don't think tourists can enter nice buildings such as the library, and the town itself is pretty shitty. Some university buildings look ok on the outside, but I don't get why there are always so many tourists.
I've never liked Harvard square bars but most of the rest of Cambridge is great. Was your semester there in the spring? Only experiencing boston between January and early May could turn anyone off the place.post #12233 of 374979/23/14 at 11:23amQuote:
Yes, it would be a cruel joke. If she misbehaves, I just might do it.post #12234 of 374979/23/14 at 11:26ampost #12235 of 374979/23/14 at 11:45ampost #12236 of 374979/23/14 at 11:54amQuote:
Myers and Chang is fun & pretty good. Coppa is better, also in South End. Toro ( again in S End, run by same guys as Coppa) is also fun, a bit boisterous, and serves some tasty, reasonably authentic tapas. Good luck getting a table though--don't think they take rez. and super busy.post #12237 of 374979/23/14 at 12:17pmpost #12238 of 374979/23/14 at 12:28pmpost #12239 of 374979/23/14 at 1:43pm
Would you cut the leg opening wider on an american suit ala bbgf or the sorts? I got mine back from the tailor and it looked pretty good, but the opening was 8.5. I think I could go slimmer, but I don't think those suits are supposed to give one a super slim silhouette at all.
I'll try taking a picture and posting on here over the next few days. I need to ask one of my housemates to take one for me haha.

@ridethecliche, superb tie kops!
Thanks d00d. I grabbed the one all the way on the left from gmmcl I believe. Haven't worn it yet. Need to figure out how to since I'm new to the dots.post #12240 of 374979/23/14 at 2:36pmQuote:
That hasn't been true for a at least a few years, and both teams were pretty shitty this year anyways so it's a total non-issue.
The early to mid 2000's were the height of the Yankees Suck mentality and chant. It's been dead for a while. Once the Red Sox won a couple World Series the whine and cheese crowd attended more games and even more corporations bought up season tickets.
