It's my wife's birthday next weekend, and we have very good friends who I just found out are passing through town briefly on Friday night: they are landing at Logan at 6 PM, need to be in Hingham by 9 PM. We can drive them (probably easiest) or they can catch an 8:25 from South Station.
I'd like to surprise her by meeting them somewhere for either drinks and apps or a quick dinner. We'll be coming from Camberville and I doubt we'll be able to get a reservation much of anywhere at this point.
What do you think? We could meet near us (Spoke or BISQ for drinks/small plates??) but realistically doubt they could get there before 7ish, which doesn't give a ton of time before we'd need to leave for Hingham -- we could head towards the airport/South Shore by car and meet them there but I have NO IDEA where one would meet down there. East Boston?? Quincy?? Getting there from Somerville seems like a nightmare at that hour.
So -- any brilliant ideas for South Shore area, or for something equally accessible from Logan by T and Camberville by car in the middle of Friday rush hour? South Station area, maybe??
