I'm meeting 2 friends for drinks and appetizers tonight in the Waltham area. I am not at all familiar with the area so am hoping for recommendations.
We're looking for a casual bar-type place - TVs are a must, for the Sox-Yankees game. "Safe" food is also needed - American bar food probably. Parking is also important, as is easy accessibility to the highways.
Joe Sent Me sounds like an option - is it acceptable food-wise? Apparently it just got a PG rec - which makes me nervous. Is it too
Tempo looks nice but too pricey ($18 for a glass of pinot grigio??) and probably too upscale. Do they have a TV at the bar?
We are also open to other neighborhoods "centrally located" - we're coming from Concord, Natick and Boston, and will be heading home to Lowell, Lynn and Medford respectively. Maybe Arlington would work?
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
