The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Gretl's Bistro

Bunny and I are always on the lookout for a good German restaurant. The closest one to us, The Biergarten, is okay—it's no Little Munich (many many miles away to the north in Lake Worth) or Old Heidelberg (many many miles away to the south in Ft. Lauderdale) or Old Vienna (used to be many many miles away to the south west in Coral Springs before it closed a few years ago).

So it was great news to us when Gretl's Bistro opened up practically around the corner (it's right next to Mississippi Sweets BBQ for those of you who are familiar with that excellent place). I think this is the second week they've been open. And it's wonderful!

The menu is still a bit limited as they get up to speed, but what they had was incredible. Bunny and I were both very impressed with our meals. Sorry Little Munich and Old Heidelberg—you're just too far away now. As for Old Vienna, we found out that Gretl (yes, she's the real owner) used to run Old Vienna, and I am glad she deicded to re-open here in Boca Raton.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

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:, 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 important.
