Entry for February 17, 2009: Catching up — food

For Valentine’s Day, Janice and I went to an early dinner at Fuji, our favorite Japanese steakhouse in Needham, Massachusetts. In the past month, we’ve also enjoyed meals at Border Café in Harvard Square, Cambridge; the new Five Guys Burgers & Fries in Dedham; and the “Death by Chocolate” charity event at the Sheraton in Newton. Five Guys compares favorably with other hamburger joints, such as Wild Willy’s.

In addition, I met Cliff Y. for an excellent Indian food buffet at Minerva, formerly the Curry Leaf, in Framingham. More recently, Janice and I had dinner with Thomas K.Y. and visitors Stuart C.G. and his eight-year-old son Sammy G. at Firefly’s Barbecue in Framingham. I went to college with Stu.

On Sunday, 15 February 2009, Beruk A. joined us for lunch at Addis Red Sea, a good Ethiopian restaurant in Porter Square, Cambridge. We then went to the Boston Museum of Science for the “Mythical Creatures” exhibit, which Janice and I had seen in New York last year. Stu, Sammy, Thomas, Beruk, and I later had a fancy steak dinner at Smith & Wollensky, although Thomas’ lamb was the standout dish.

Last night, during the D20 Mutants & Masterminds 2nd Ed.: “Drake’s 7” superhero game, we ordered from Stone Hearth Pizza. The locally sourced, organic food wasn’t quite as tasty as in the restaurant, but that was probably because the driver was misdirected and our food arrived late.

Coming soon: Games and animation!
