Well, I did get to head to Villa Mexico (in Grampy's Gulf on Cambridge Street in Boston) this evening for dinner. What a place! A little superette-type deal in the back of a convenience store that is part of a gas station. The people were extremely nice (they kept calling me "my friend," and actually seemed to mean it) and the chicken burrito they made for me was excellent. Maybe not the best I've had, but really, really good, and a relative bargain at about $6.00 or so. I was tempted to get a tamale with it, but held back, knowing I would be trying this place again over the next couple of weeks.

Met up with some folks afterwards in downtown Boston and eventually ended up at UBurger in Kenmore Square for another dinner (I have no idea how that happened, but I'm not complaining). We hung around there for awhile at one of their outdoor tables, munching on their outstanding griddled burgers and enjoying the tasty onions rings. I also ordered fries, but they disappointed a bit this time around--they were very bland compared to the fries I had there a few months back.

And now for meal #3 (Tums).....
