The Say Something Poster Project

Ever the art connoisseurs, Crystal and I stopped by The Fourth Wall Gallery to catch The Say Something Poster Project exhibit. The Poster Project had a collection of 25 posters by artists competing to have their work donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester. The works were created with the intention of motivating and inspiring the kids at the club.

Only three artists could win the contest, so attendees were given ballots to vote for the 10 posters that rocked their respective world. Check out a couple of our favorites:

Oh yeah – we also were treated to some free beer courtesy of High and Mighty who served up some of their Purity of Essence lager at the gallery. Thanks, High and Mighty! All in all, it was a pretty great time.

Tilapia Tacos

In an effort to save some benjamins and switch up our routine, Rick and I decided to stay in on this long holiday weekend for dinner and a movie. We decided to make tilapia tacos. They ended up being both delicious and healthy! Rick “grilled” the tilapia on the stovetop without oil or butter – just a little garlic seasoning – and I prepped all the fixin’s: pico de gallo, chili verde, black beans, corn, napa cabbage, limes and some spicy-ass Habanero sauce. We each made our own little tacos on some warm corn tortillas. Quick. Healthy. Cheap. PLUS, we have enough for a few more dinners this week. We coupled it with a Boatswain American IPA and the Ryan Gosling flick, Drive. Yum!

Gaming on at Game On

The Giants and Packers were playing for the right to face the Niners in the NFC championship so naturally, being the huuuuge football fans we are, C and I hit up Boston’s finest sports pub for some food and brews – Game On.

I can’t say I’m a huge fan of sports pubs (or sports), but I’ll be damned if I said I didn’t like Game On. The place is home to my favorite loaded nachos in Boston and also one of my favorite burgers – the Pretzel Burger. The Pretzel Burger is a bacon cheeseburger buried deep inside a cocoon of pretzel bun magic. They also serve it up with a couple sides of mustard.

I was thinking “I’m young and I have a lot of life to live” so I decided to get crazy and switch things up a bit so I ordered a plate of hot wings. I was pretty stoked about it since everything I’ve ever ordered from Game On has been pretty awesome for pub food, but these wings let me down. They were saltier than the tears of a saltine cracker. I think I consumed about 40,000 mg of sodium per wing.

I’ll probably be back on Sunday, anyway.

Pro Tip #459: Check in twice on FourSquare and get yourself hooked up with a free appetizer. Just stay away from those salty-ass hot wings.
