Fortunately, I awoke in time to catch my roommate Rob
and friends Shane
going to lunch (or dinner, depending upon
your viewpoint). We ended up eating at the Boca-Glades Gourmet Diner, just
up the street (well, two miles up the street) from the Facility in the
Middle of Nowhere. It's easy enough to miss unless you look closely,
nestled as it is just next to the Florida Turnpike exit on Glades Road and
dispite the name, it isn't
a diner (critieria #1: it's not open 24
hours. Bummer. Criteria #2: Rob won't eat at diners).
The inside is upscale, yet the prices are very reasonable and the
food—well, it's very good. Everything (including the bread,
the hummus dip, the desserts) is home made, and much to Rob's delight, they
have a wonderful selection of beers and aren't afraid to serve them for
breakfast (he checked—he gets off from work around 8:00 am) nor are they
afraid of serving huge it in pint sized glasses either.
And the service was wonderful; we all pretty much fell in love with the
waitress—cute, smart and funny. Can't beat that at all.
Down side, like I said—it's not open 24 hours. Sigh.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
