You can't argue with me when I tell ya it's getting cold outside. It's that season where we (or at least I know I'm guilty of it) like to bundle up under a blanket, watch tv, and EAT! Don't deny it y'all. Maybe I went a little overboard with today's picture, but I still bet your drinking hot chocolate right now and have warm sugar cookies baking in the oven. Avoid the dreaded winter weight gain and put those cravings to a halt.

Yes, you heard me loud and clear. Take the Boston College T Line, or take a quick drive down Commonwealth Avenue towards Brighton and you are in for quite the treat. The Avenue is one of Brighton's hot spots, with over 30 beers on draft and amazing burgers you can't go wrong. I took it upon myself to try it out last Monday and I was shockingly impressed. I was expecting one of those rip off burgers that you get when there is a special- ya know the kind that doesn't even have lettuce or tomatos and you could eat in one bite? But not here! The Avenue is not joking around when they make these one dollar burgers. Mine was so big and juicy that I could barely finish it. I will definitely be there tomorrow night so I better see you there! And yes, you can come say hey to me. I don't bite. (unless you dress up like a burger)
Ten Cents Wings!
Yes, I am very aware that your jaw is dropped to the floor right now, but it IS true. Not only are there ten cent wings, but in one of the most happening spots in downtown Boston. Only two blocks from the Park Street green line station on Mondays you will find people lined up out the door of RedHat. What are they doing you may ask... waiting on a table to get some cheap beer and ten cent wings! That's 50 wings for only five bucks! The great part about it is there is no limit or minimum. Order one wing or one hundred- no matter how many they are only ten cents each! Gnarly right? So just wing it this Monday at RedHat. Besides, everybody's doin' it. (ps.. get there by six and avoid the line)
BBQsmith (bär′bə kyoo̅′smit̸h):

3. BBQ that is built for the road with loads of flavor but none of the mess.
So basically what i'm getting at is that there is a traveling BBQ van in Boston that is beyond legit. I'm from Alabama originally, so with that being said this stuff better be pretty darn good considering I'm used to the best of the best Southern barbeque. It was so good that I even insisted on taking this picture. So follow them on twitter and facebook and find out when they will be near you next. It is DEEE-LISH!!!
Disclaimer: You will most likely end up stalking this van. Don't say I didn't warn you.
I was aimlessly walking through South End last weekend and happened to stumble (luckily stumble that is) into an amazing pub - aka JJ Foley's. I was looking for a laid back kind of evening, and got just that... or something like that. After the families and children rolled out after dinner (and after I had stuffed my face with a quesadilla that no Mexican restaurant could ever top) the place really started kickin. In fact, there was a line out the door.
I began to talk to my bartender and found out that he was the owner's son. I made some friends at the bar and shortly found out that this was Boston's OLDEST FAMILY OWNED RESTERAUNT! Okay, so maybe I'm a little too obsessed with history, but if you ask me (and any local) JJ Foley's is a hot spot for everyone. If you are looking to have a great dinner and great drinks, and don't want to completely kill your wallet, then head on over to JJ Foley's. Looking for a Saturday night hot spot kinda bar? This is your place too.
OHHH and just when you think it doesn't get any better... When I asked to take a picture with the owner Jimmy and his son I was taken by surprise. Jimmy's second son - aka my future husband ;) - jumped in the back of the picture. Family owned for sure!
