Prince Pizza for a fiver (that $5 American!)

Just got back from the airport to pick up DaWife's nephew and his wife who flew in from Alabama to be here for his older brother's wedding. Since it involved a trip to the airport it also meant that a trip to Prince Pizza in Saugus was required. It was the first time I drove … Continue reading Prince Pizza for a fiver (that $5 American!)

A night a Linguini’s

I’m mentioned Linguine's several times in the past describing the food as one of my great pleasures, but I’ve never actually been here with my camera in hand. Last night however the family had already had supper by the time I was done with my stint on WCRN AM 830 Conservatively Speaking. So I decided … Continue reading A night a Linguini’s

I take a day off from the net and Stacy Gets attacked again…Update: What’s with the Diner, where did the post go?

I planned on taking a day or two off with scheduled posts and what happens, the left goes nuts over Todd Palin talking to Stacy McCain. I've already spent plenty of time defending Stacy from Johnson & Co. I've known Stacy via e-mail now for a year and in person for 9 months. He has … Continue reading I take a day off from the net and Stacy Gets attacked again…Update: What’s with the Diner, where did the post go?

Some quick Varsity films

As I run around this morning here are a few clips from my visit to the Varsity Drive in Last night: And Inside: And a room I missed: That very nice lady in the second Clip thinks I say "thank you very much" just like Elvis. I don't hear it myself.

Your Lenten Fish at the 5th Street Diner Fitchburg…

...also known as the Old Time Luncheonette. In fact the street is also known as Harvard Street so you might have quite a time finding the place. It was here where the other McCain established the important fact that all breakfast is local. Stacy can vouch for the food as can Dan Collins too.

Happiness is a Good Pizza

My brother picked me up from the airport on Sunday and since we were already in Boston we went to his favorite Pizza Place, Prince Pizza. I'd write all about it but why write when people can tell you it about it themselves.... And we have a still shot too, Antipasto anyone? It's all well … Continue reading Happiness is a Good Pizza

The right choice

A tough call for the 5th street diner. Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and for 40 days Catholics will be eating a whole lot more fish. Their fish dinner is first rate but they expect to see the price of their fresh fish is likely going to go from $4.99lb to $7.99 lb. (Last week they … Continue reading The right choice

My final election report comes after Scott Brown…

...has been sworn in. Just got back from the Alamo restaurant where I met a friend and mentor from my first computer job for lunch. The food is good, not as spicy as I'm used to, but the portions were generous and the people pleasant and the ambiance enjoyable particular for a history buff. The … Continue reading My final election report comes after Scott Brown…

Three Cheers to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette…

...for putting the Richard T. Antoun murder by an islamist on page one. Good luck waiting for the rest of the media to catch up.

Q: Why should you always schedule meetings at Linquini’s Italian Eatery?

A: Because if for any reason the other guy doesn't show you still have lunch at Linguini's Italian Eatery in Marlborough, and that is almost always worth the trip. Important note: the same rules would apply for either the Border Grille & Bar in Leominster or the Southside Grille & Margarita Factory in Gardner

A great example of what I’m talking about…

...happened here in town about 20 years ago. A pal of mine before he re-trained as a systems guy used to work in a French Restaurant that used to be next door to City Hall. (The food wasn't bad but it wasn't really my cup of tea). There is an open air park there now, … Continue reading A great example of what I’m talking about…

Idiocy on a more local scale

At the same time that the federal government is making a dumb move here in Massachusetts Gov Patrick, (David Axelrod's dry run for President Obama) is doing it as well on a smaller scale: The good news is that Deval Patrick has been declared “America’s Best Governor” by the state’s taxpayers and small business owners. … Continue reading Idiocy on a more local scale
