Backbar is great and pretty handy to whichever of Blume and I wins the lottery to go (assuming it's a nighttime thing). The other option is a not-night thing at a place (not Backbar) where people can trail massive clouds of small children behind them. (The Independent, next to Backbar, would be okay for this). Only other thing with Backbar is that weekend nights it's pretty hoppin'. But it is the best.

You would definitely be driving in -- it's probably 45 minutes or so from town under normal conditions, and not terribly near the commuter rail. I... do not make it out that way at all unless I'm on a long bike ride, I'll put it that way. Lots of working farms and such out there. But really lovely countryside, and certainly lots of people commute from that far out, so it's not like State College or something.

Heeeey meetup thread. We should get this bumped at some point, since it is lost in the woods now. Anyhow: Union, which is where the Independent and Backbar is, is not the closest place to the train, but is a very quick bus ride from Kendall, Lechmere or Harvard.

There is a small parking lot basically in front of the bar(s), but getting space in it is hard. Not sure I'd recommend it as an approach.

The cheapskate in me likes the idea of apparently no tolls. Google's current estimate says both stations would take about the same time, but Saturday morning traffic may be different. Internet consensus seems to be that you do not drive on 95 if you don't have to.

I'm actually playing the Doge version and finding it more soothing, except the smallest winking Doge. I'm not sure what this says about me, but it can't be good.

I got up to the second rainbow doge, and I think one past that.

I said this in the other place, but Lee had bought some gouda with bacon in it, which was pretty awesome but not appropriate for having my Catholic dad over to watch basketball Friday, and then Mara decided it would be even better with a pickle spear on the side and it so totally was. It's possible this is because it's as close to a full meal as I've gotten since I got sick Thursday, but still I'm pretty sure it was great and that it's not going to translate as well to bacon maple brittle.

I thought I was getting a regular pickle today but it turned out to be some kind of sweetened pickle. It was like a candied cucumber. Stores should really put a big warning on the shelves: Not a real pickle.

132: so no pickles should be added to the brittle?

136: Maybe stick to sweetened candied cucumber.

(Someone needs to make me go to bed, but I don't wanna.)

I biked home without much difficulty. The burrito place's kitchen was closed despite its Yelp indicated hours. The other Mexican place had a band so we avoided it.

Which they actually might not be, in the full light of day. They're quite similar.

Wait, it's still going to snow in Boston this week? And I still have a congested head from the spring pollen on the other side of the planet.

The maple bacon brittle came out like gangbusters. Really good. Rich as anything though.
