Everyone’s got their thing. Josh’s is beer, for instance. And our friend at Venrock, David Beisel’s thing is Hamburgers. Mine is french fries. I can’t help myself – I always have to try them out, and if they’re good they’re gone. Not great on the health-o-meter, but nothing an extra few miles on the mountain bike can’t solve (oh yeah, it’s winter and I only biked 3 times last summer).
Boston has some decent fries. In my humble opinion, decent fries means: not too greasy, freshly cut (ie not previously frozen), not too thick (thin is better), not too crunchy. Some have flavor, which can be great or horrible. I’m not into spicy fries, curly fries, or hexagonal fries. Just straight ones. Dipping sauces can be a plus. And they need to be fried in high quality, clean oil. Very important.
That said, here are my favs around town:
1. Chez Henri. Don’t ask why, just go try (not intended to rhyme)

Fantastic news! There’s Zync cocktail. Yes, it’s true, Josh verified it and found this recipe:
2.0 Oz. Sprite Lemon Lime Soda
2.0 Oz. Sweet Vermouth
1.0 Oz. [good] Vodka
Mix all ingredients, stir, and ENJOY!

Ok, I admit it. I haven’t done a great job of keeping our blog “fresh”. In fact, I haven’t done squat (technical term for “didley”). That whole stream of “Big Thoughts” consciousness thing just didn’t happen. Probably for lack of Big Thoughts, but the excuse I’m sticking with is lack of time, having to run the company yada yada. The intentions were there, but the follow-through was not.
But the tides of change are upon us. You’re now going to see contributions from everyone at the company, on subjects related to and about the company. From Big Thoughts to trite rants, the proverbial kimono is now officially open for business (is that mixing metaphors?).
Enjoy, and send lots of feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
