Charles River Coffee House

February 26th, 2010 · No Comments

My friend and I met at the Charles River Coffee House for…coffee.  It’s a nice little shop at 57 Eliot St. in Natick across from the library. I haven’t been there in a long time, actually since it was Clever Monk Coffee which was a few years ago now. Inside is small but manages to accommodate about 15 seats.  Perfect […]

The Oregon Club

December 6th, 2009 · No Comments

I’ve always wanted to go to the Oregon Club but never got around to it.  I think it was just last year, Ethan and I finally decided to go and found out it was closed(!).  We were happy to hear the former speakeasy re-opened this year and went down one night recently to check it […]

Button Box

September 3rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

As Laraine pointed out on my “About” page, it’s been a whole month and a half in between posts. I feel bad because I’d love to update weekly, which doesn’t sound like a lot but between two other blogs and all summer I was looking for a full-time job, which is a full-time job in […]

Farmer’s Exchange

April 13th, 2009 · 2 Comments

One  of the nice businesses that has moved from walking distance from our house in Framingham is the Farmer’s Exchange.  Luckily, it didn’t move too far and is about 3 miles away on Nickerson Road in Ashland. I really like this place even though we don’t have much of a yard but they have all […]

Need to get organized?

March 3rd, 2009 · No Comments

A very good friend of mine owns an organizing business and has a growing number of clients in the Metrowest area so I thought I’d post about it in case anyone could use her services from office or home.  Here is a little blurb from her site about her services: “Francesca Verri started verri organized about 7 […]

Krua Khun Yah

August 25th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Ethan and I went to the Shaw’s  plaza on a mission with a Dollar Store purchase and decided to try taking home some Pad Thai from Krua Khun Yah.  As some people have pointed out, there are not a lot of Thai places around here so we’re always up for trying out our noodle favorite dish. […]

Lookout Farm

August 19th, 2008 · No Comments

When I worked at Wellesley College, my friends and I would often go down to Marino’s (now Belkin’s) Lookout Farm. It’s a really nice place to take a break and look around the nice market they have inside: In addition to their great house-made take out foods, they also have gelato, which on a summer day […]

Regatta Deli

August 12th, 2008 · 3 Comments

When I started working in Westborough, my fellow employee and Westborough native, Brendan showed me all the good placed to eat.  Regatta Deli was one of our first lunchtime fieldtrips. Inside is a small but not cramped space that you can sit in but it seemed most people (including us) got sandwiches to go. They have […]

I *heart* Kappy’s

July 20th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I don’t drink a lot of beer but when I do, it’s to really enjoy the craft of a fine brew. One of the few beers I feel is a taste experience is “Blackened Voodoo”.   This is actually my all time favorite beer (lager), ever, ever.  The New Orleans based brewery was destroyed by Katrina […]

Weston Nurseries

July 13th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I like Weston Nurseries(located on 135 in Hopkinton) because there is a great assortment, nice people and a beautiful layout. Whenever I go here for something I always end up walking around and looking at everything thinking I can somehow fit it in my tiny yard.  It’s a great place to go and just look at […]

Tasty Treat

June 30th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Since I’m sitting at the computer sweating at 10:30PM I thought I’d post about our recent trip to Tasty Treat in Ashland.   This is one of our top picks when it comes to going out for an ice cream.    I guess there’s nothing too special about it but it’s a nice place to go for […]

In the lobby there is the dessert case, […]

Pago Pago

April 17th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Growing up in Holliston’s “south side” we spent a lot of time going to Milford and one of our favorite places for Chinese food was, and still is Pago Pago on rt. 16. I guess I should make a note here, since sometimes I’ll make a post on thisisframingham about a Chinese restaurant and someone feels the […]

Tatnuck Bookseller

March 13th, 2008 · 6 Comments

What can I say?  I love Tatnuck.  They took an empty Star Market in the Westborough Shopping Center and turned it into an awesome independent bookstore.  Don’t let the modest lowercase lettering fool you, (t)Tatnuck competes with the corporate bookstores down the road and thanks to local support, continues to be part of the local business scene. I remember their […]

Red Barn Coffee

March 9th, 2008 · 3 Comments

I started a new job in Westborough last month and finally have the pleasure of going Route 9 west instead of east in the morning.  I decided to take advantage of this and try Red Barn Coffee.  I’m almost embarrassed to admit I’ve never been to any Red Barn before.  I know it’s been around […]
