Tore my acl/mcl/meniscus after someone dove at my knee while blocking on an extra point. 3 weeks later it gave out while walking and I tore it all again and pulled the screw out of my knee plus completely ruptured my patella. My kneecap was on the side of my knee. I couldn't walk for months and I had to have someone lift my leg just to get in a car.  It still hurts 15+ years later.

Brian Fallon plays solo, but his band is the rest of Gaslight plus one other guy. They always tour it's pretty awesome. Also check out the Horrible Crowes. It's basically the same band.

The Sinclair is good. Charlie's has a decent patio to drink outside if it's nice out. Most of the college kids are still away, so it shouldn't be too crowded there. My friend is the chef at Night Market there if you like Asian street food.

Back Bay and the South End are close to where you'll be. There are a lot of decent bars and restaurants in those areas. Fenway area will be a lot of college kids. Sweet Cheeks near Fenway is supposed to have some good BBQ. I'd avoid going west to Allston or Brighton as it will be all college kids as well. JM Curleys and Stoddards are good spots down by the Common. The North End will have good Italian food. Neptune Oyster is good there, but expensive and you'll likely have a wait. Fort Point also has a lot of good bars and restaurants as well. Row 34 is good for seafood there. The Harpoon brewery is in the Seaport and worth checking out. 

Saying that, I live in Cambridge and rarely cross over into the city except for work and Chinatown. State Park is solid in the Kendall area. Cambridge Brewing Company is right across the way. There's a new BBQ spot there too and they have a ton of whiskey. I go to Green Street in Central for drinks all the time. They have a huge cocktail menu and the food is good as well. 

If there's anything specific you're looking for or to avoid (food, atmosphere, etc) I can narrow it down to more spots. And if you go to State Park I will meet you there and attempt to make you order the Nashville Hot Fried Chicken.

I would just take practice tests over and over. That's all I did for a couple of weeks before the exam and scored over 650 which was all I needed.

It's a simple question, Norm. If you were a hot dog, and were starving, would you eat yourself? I know I would. First I'd slather myself in brown mustard and relish. I'd be so delicious. So would ya?

I saw Santana live and it may have been the most boring and worst show ever. Buddy Guy played before him and was a million times better. You couldn't pay me to listen to Santana again.

This show is amazing. There's a scene in the 3rd episode where one guy talks the other one through Point Break. It was one of the best things I've seen in awhile.

I've been there for soccer before. I remember it being a pretty decent spot to watch a game.
