Worthwhile reads from the web this week

This week and weekend flew by (week of the 18th). I don’t even know where to begin. I did the usual activities at the beginning of the week like work-outs and time with the bf and plenty of writing. The end of the week I was out and about just about every night though.

Thursday I hung with an old co-worker and his grad school crew at Zuma. Friday I went out with my co-workers to one of my new fave spots Trade for drinks and Saturday it was off to CT to visit with high school friends and their kiddies. Sunday I should have been writing this very post and doing other work but it was just too nice out so I headed out for Bloody Mary’s which then led to beers at Tia’s.

Needless to say today I am hurting and the weather did not help much! Anywho, I actually did not collect as many links as usual this week but I did find a few keepers so don’t fret. I don’t know if it was because I was busy or what but check out what did catch my eye.

Weight Watchers or really anyone watching their waistline will love this break down of what cocktails to order at the bar or grab at a party this summer.

Any burger with bacon is good in my book. I definitely want to feast on this recipe for Bacon Burgers with Bacon-Onion-Balsamic Jam.

Lady Spa Spa interviewed the founder of Aubrey Elizabeth Apothecary. If you are looking for a fun addition to your kitchen or bathroom or the perfect gift for a foodie, you’ll love her faux food soaps.

New bar alert! Alley bar is open in Boston near the Waterfront.

Wowza.  And Granary Tavern is open too on Milk Street! Also downtown, Back Deck is open as well.

And yet another new bar alert for Boston, Empire Asian Restaurant & Lounge is open in the Seaport area. Lots of new options to check out!

Speaking of Boston, my CBS article this week was about Boston’s Best Bistros.

Hope everyone had a good weekend too!
