Saltie Girl Seafood Bar, Back Bay, Boston

An early Friday, very chilly evening led us to the much buzzed about Saltie Girl in Back Bay.  I had been dying to try this little restaurant located in a brownstone on Dartmouth Street since it opened a little more than a year ago. This small restaurant is one side bar seating of about 10 seats and one side of about five booths.  Its loudly intimate and showcases a wall of tinned fish, figurehead mermaids and bright colorful beachy tiles.  Unfortunately, reservations can’t be made at Saltie Girl so I met my friend Erika at 5.30pm and lucky for...

Bad Dates a Play by Theresa Rebeck – Huntington Theater, Boston

Last Friday I ventured out for dinner and a play with my friend Erika.  The dinner was at the always great Brasserie Jo, which had us enjoying an amazing dessert of their table-side Chocolate Mousse.  A play called Bad Dates at the Huntington Theater was to follow.  My friend Rob (BosGuy) sent me the link for the play and without even really looking up what it was about, except of course bad dates, I was in.  I could certainly write a book longer than War & Peace on this subject.  The play, written by the super smart and savvy...
