Some Twitter Fun

This morning one of my friends, David Gerzof, a professor at Emerson College, appeared on Fox Boston morning news to talk about who people should follow on Twitter. I'm excited to say I've made the list with friend, Steve Garfield, and potential friend, Chad Ochocinco.

I'm always on Twitter, interacting with people, giving quick 140-characted sized snippets of advice, and sharing interesting content I typically don't share here. I highly recommend you follow me on Twitter.

Just another value-add to your dating arsenal.

Review of Café 47

Address: 47 Massachusetts Ave (at Marlborough), Boston, MA 02115


Cost: $

Special: Great Date Spot

This place is a gem in the list of great date spots and great spots overall in Boston. It’s simple in that it’s small and isn’t elaborate. But it’s a well put-together place. Beth, the owner, has put a TON of work into making this place a fun spot and I think she’s successful. What makes it great is that it serves two of my favorite things: wine and pizza. Their pizza is REALLY good. I personally haven’t had anything else but their pizzas but I’m okay with that. It’s THAT good. I feel pretty certain to think that the other food they offer is just as good. They offer both a reasonably-priced lunch and dinner menu.

Their wine selection is pretty extensive considering the type of place and it’s just enough variety that you can find an appropriate pairing with what you eat. Meaning, if you don’t really know much about wine, you can order something from the list and feel good about it. Here’s a tip: ask the waitress what wine they would recommend with what food.

The intimate setting provides a fun experience for you and your date. There’s even a small bar toward the back with a couple of TVs if you just want to chill out and have a couple drinks. I got a chance to talk with the owner and a few of the staff. They are all very cool people that want to make sure you have a fun time there. It’s a true neighborhood bar and a rarity in the Boston area. I give this place an A (94).

Some can complain that it’s too small

Midnight Review of Styx

NOTE: mobile post

Address: 35 Stanhope St.

Who cones here: 20-somethings

Best nights to come: Saturday

Special: good food menu on certain days.

Price: $$

Waiting in line for the bathroom, it almost makes sense to blog about Styx, the new 33. For those who don't know, 33 has shut down & will be replaced. 33 had a home in my heart so hearing about its closing was not good. Although, I have to say, Styx, being right next door, isn't so bad, if you have a small party.

I'd categorize this venue in the "club" section. Loud music, lots of dancing & a variety of people. But being in a very small place (think the size of your average master bedroom with an extension for a bar), it's not hard to meet people. Confidence is a must here, though, as you must speak up & exude good body language.

Note: When you use the bathroom, it sounds like the walls are going to crumble with all the bass in this place. I saw a crack spread from the ceiling. Don't worry though. It's normal.

This place is perfect for a group party. You won't need to call to reserve. Just show up. Be warned, there is a cover ranging from 10 to 15 bucks.

Overall, I give this place a 79 (C+).

I'll be more active in talking about more places when I'm in the place. Let me know what you think in the comments or send me a tweet.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled madness.
