Don't EVEN call that thing a subway system. Dear LORD. What is this? An IDM album cover? ARRGGGH.

i don't wanna know what tom thinks of philly's subway system, then.

and the jets already played the patriots in NE so that trip's out.

Admittedly by spending part of my youth in the DC area and now living here I have been a bit spoiled on the subway front.

Come to Boston and entertain me!

The roads in Boston are put together much worse than even DC or suburban Maryland.

I didn't think such a thing possible til I got lost driving in Boston.. in 90-degree weather.. no air conditioning.. no SIGNS for the goddamn detours and is there NO END to the big dig or what? ARGH. And I LIKE driving in DC.

Also, why does everyone in Boston wear ribbed sweaters at all times? Explain!

I guess I don't mind Red Sox fans though (especially in RI). I grew up liking the Orioles but they don't lose in an epic way, so it's less fun. Camden Yards is a nice ballpark but seems oddly yuppified for Baltimore. I kinda liked the old Memorial Stadium..

I'm trying to convince Wheeler to come. I'm thinking the weekend of the 15th would be best. Thoughts?

What's wrong with ribbed sweaters?

Someone just pointed out to me that semi-quitting smoking could very well result in my typing "meanly" without feeling mean, so belatedly -- sorry if anything came off that way. Haven't got any secret plans to kill anyone's pets or anything.

I just sent my mother her Christmas present early: a copy of the New York Post misprint where the Red Sox won game 7 :)

oh yeah how much does a pack of smokes cost in boston?

For you, your life's blood spilled out on the street, I'm guessing.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 00:55 (11 years ago) Permalink

well, i decided not to piss on fenway park and harvard law only because tep was so mean. now, i dunno about that!

Little Big Macher (llamasfur), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 00:58 (11 years ago) Permalink

No no, I'm not mean, I'll even hold it for you!

(that's a good thing)

(no it isn't)

Tep (ktepi), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 00:59 (11 years ago) Permalink

I love how we're all in agreement. So it's decided: Boston sucks, and we should go there.

It does sound like a lot of fun, maybe it will work.

felicity (felicity), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 01:08 (11 years ago) Permalink

No no, I'm not mean, I'll even hold it for you!

this is why i don't normally go to these things ... 'cause ILX has so many homos!

On a Boston thread, the word you want is queeahs.

What's wrong with ribbed sweaters?

I'm kinda trying to figure that out myself.

TOMBOT, Tuesday, 21 October 2003 01:32 (11 years ago) Permalink

Nothing, clearly that's mentalism. Boston could use way more ribbed sweaters and a lot less Ben Affleck.

Felicity, we are going to try to invade and force Boston to unsuck, this is why you should be in on this.

I would like to take the Chinatown bus with Geeta.

If that is not the first thing to come out of your mouth when I introduce you to Dan Perry, you are seriously not getting laid that night.

Ugh, I'm not even going to chime in on this thread in regards to Boston anymore. I like it, some of you don't. Thats your opinion and I'm fine with it. Anyways, are we talking December or November?

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 10:34 (11 years ago) Permalink

Oh and a pack of smokes costs around $5.50-$6.00 in Boston. $5 in Worcester. Which is the shithole of Massachusetts. And I'm proud to live here.

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 10:39 (11 years ago) Permalink

Jesus, did they up the tax again? It was high when I lived there, but not that high; it had just gotten to the "at this price, I may as well just buy imports" mark of $3.75 - $4.00.

Tep (ktepi), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 10:41 (11 years ago) Permalink

Yup they upped it and they pulled a NY and stopped all smoking in bars and restaurants.

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 10:43 (11 years ago) Permalink

What's wrong is those fitted, turtleneck sweaters usually on sale at Banana Republic or something that are super unflattering especially on guys.

example #1


uh, no.

daria g (daria g), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 10:47 (11 years ago) Permalink

A) Ribbed turtlenecks look good on me.
B) However ribbed turtlenecks as stated above do kind of make men look like wankers.

Chris V.: November. The problem with the weekend after the 15th is doesn't that cut it close to holidays? Are people around?

Allyzay, Tuesday, 21 October 2003 12:23 (11 years ago) Permalink

Fagtogs! I am in hysterics.

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 12:28 (11 years ago) Permalink

I prefer wool turtleneck sweaters, much less titty on men. I'm around both weekends. The weekend of Thanksgiving I am not.

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:03 (11 years ago) Permalink

OK so then it's all good. That was my big worry but now I haven't a big worry. Boston the later weekend it is. Geeta will you come to Boston with us too??? Are you serious about the no smoking, Chris?

Allyzay, Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:08 (11 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, that happened a couple of months ago and recently extended to Cambridge. I think you can still smoke indoors in Somerville, though.

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:13 (11 years ago) Permalink

yup. Dead serious, have to go outside now. Sucks ass. Although worcester isn't smoke free yet, but I don't think anyone wants to come here. so the weekend of the 21-22. According to the newspaper this morning, they are trying to make the whole state smoke free.

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:15 (11 years ago) Permalink

Dan, any suggestions of where to go?

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:21 (11 years ago) Permalink

The only positive to Boston is the fact that I thought you could still smoke there! It truly IS the devil's city.

Seriously though, I'll go to Worcester just so I don't have to stand outside in late November in New England for fuck's sake. Oh well. I'll still come, I'll just complain a lot. I hope you like whining!!!

Allyzay, Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:22 (11 years ago) Permalink

I love whining...

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:26 (11 years ago) Permalink

I'm completely out of touch with places to go because I've been really, really broke for about a year what with putting someone through grad school. One place that is usually good as far as being someplace a large number of people can comfortably invade is Flash's cocktails on Columbus St (aka the place I took Ally, Otis and the gang the last time they were in town); it's kind of small but for some reason there's usually tons of seating, plus it's close to the Ritz.

I would suggest The Pour House but it's always packed. There's also a Good Life back in the Financial District somewhere but I can never remember where it is. Oh, and there's another pub-type place that is around the corner from Jose McIntyre's (I will never ever EVER take anyone to Jose Macs so don't even ask about it) which doesn't lend itself to seating a large party but is pretty cheap from what I remember. Apparently celebrities show up at The Rack a lot, so if people want to go chuckle at Yuppie Hell I'd suggest there.

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:28 (11 years ago) Permalink

(Haha "I have no idea of where to go, but we could try place A or place B or place C, place D sucks, maybe place E if you get desperate, etc etc etc...")

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:29 (11 years ago) Permalink

$5-$6? no smoking in bars?

Little Big Macher (llamasfur), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:40 (11 years ago) Permalink

The good life is fun. I hate the Rack with a passion and its so expensive. I think the name of the bar across from Jose's is Coogans Bluff. Its alright, and cheap. I've gotten thrown out of there for jumping on stage and stealing the mic from a dude and demanding the audience sing "More than a Feeling".

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:43 (11 years ago) Permalink

I was at T's pub in brighton two weeks ago and there was plenty of space. Although its right next to the Paradise and sort of away from everything. Plus they had Bud Light 20 oz drafts for $2.

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 13:46 (11 years ago) Permalink

Haha I remember Flash's. We ended up moving shop from there though, much to our detriment/eternal gratitude when the next bar confiscated O-town's ID. "What's your zip code?" "Uh, I don't know."

Allyzay, Tuesday, 21 October 2003 14:04 (11 years ago) Permalink

I thought the only reason we left was because we wanted to dance?

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 14:04 (11 years ago) Permalink

No no that is EXACTLY why we left, it just turned into a total disaster which is completely amusing to me. We didn't leave because of anything Flash's did, I'm sorry if I implied that. We ended up in that big enormous place with the waitress that looked like Denise Richards, but I don't remember what that was. It was huge though!!

I think a place we might be able to dance would be good but nothing too expensive...

Allyzay, Tuesday, 21 October 2003 14:46 (11 years ago) Permalink

fear my moves.

Chris V. (Chris V), Tuesday, 21 October 2003 14:53 (11 years ago) Permalink

Jillian's! That's a great place for finding someplace to sit, plus they've got Atlas downstairs which we could conceivably go to for our dancing needs.
