1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm in town to work a bit, then go visit NSM to order up some stuff. I'm guessing other SF people might be around . . . .

    What else to do, where else to go?

    He's dissing you, Big A - everybody who is anybody has already received their invite to Vox' Friday Night BBQ and All Girl Sprezzatura Review.
    Hell, even Kiton Brioni's corpse will be present.

    You should also visit the Cheers bar, and get a Cheers t-shirt and coffee mug.

    Town was cool, although the music got clubby. Forum, iirc, had a nice cocktail list but weird clientele and shoddy service. Washington square tavern (i think thats the name) had good beer and an incredible port selection (thanks whiteslash!) But was strangely dead. Its still a nice setting and cool bar.

    Was Forum the place with all the Asians? Like...to the point where I felt uncomfortable... Their service was HORRENDOUS.

    Towne was better earlier in the night, before someone crapped their pants.

    Big A, Fenway Frank isn't a dude, but a delicious hot dog!

    Do everything Corbera tells you.

    Try the food at Faneuil Hall!


    *Washington Square is in Brookline, most likely off your path.

    This is a better joke than you might think, though I'm not sure how familiar with Boston you are.

    For serious, I haven't kicked around Downtown, Beacon Hill, North End, or South End too much.

    Back Bay:
    Towne - Not bad usually an older crowd (I mean older than 25), it has a divorcee vibe to me. Food and drinks aren't bad.
    Sonsei - One of the be seen and be heard places, sort of an institution for cocktails.

    Kenmore Square:
    Eastern Standard, Hathorne, and Island Creek Oyster House are all right next to each other. They are all interchangeable with slight variations. I prefer Hawthorne, a little less busy and has less douches. Eastern Standard has a fucking awesome spirits list. If you are into spirits neat this is a great place.

    Fuck seaport.

    Depending on what you are looking for, and where you are staying, I can be more helpful.

    You can rent the whole boat. For an extra $100, you can wear the captain's hat.

    From what I understand, Big A could amuse himself for hours at the Children's Museum.
