Cucumber salad from Dish Tremont:
Chicken skewer from Dish Tremont:
Chocolate truffle from Lilly:
(worth the $1, but I'd heard they wanted $2 earlier - that's a bit much for one bite)
Gazpacho from Fat Cats:
(not pricey, a little too spicy!!!)
Lobster gazpacho from Southside:
($3, large portion, plenty o' lobster, and just the right flavoring)
$4 Bass Ale in a small plastic cup from Edisons:
Full-on air conditioning at Edisons in the back room while consuming said Bass Ale:
Lack of air conditioning in Fahrenheit for my friends who insisted on getting "Chambulls" (Champagne + Red Bull)
The numbskulls who would walk aimlessly - actually, not aimlessly - they would walk right AT me while I have my hands full of food (and a camera)
Beer garden run by Tremont Tap House:
(waaaaaay too long of a wait, TWO servers, and whose f#cking idea was it to have some sort of giveaway for Magic Hat #9? Let's see, disable a server so he can spin some stupid wheel for a giveaway so someone can chug some overly apricoty swill*? No. Just NO.). Sorry, I love Tap House otherwise and they'll get my business, but this was an out and out FLOP.
However... it was a very very good day overall. Why?
1. Chocolate-dipped, peanut-covered frozen banana from Tremont Scoops.
2. Pierogi from St. John Cantius, likely made by some little old Polish grandmothers who slaved away in the church basement, screaming at each other - in Polish, of course. As with any ethnic food, if it's made by a bunch of grandmothers in a church basement, you KNOW it's gonna be good.
* Magic Hat #9 is actually decent, but when it (more to the point, it's giveaway game) inhibits me drinking my preferred beer, there's hell to pay.
