In the beginning stages of this blog, I wrote this post here about how much lawyers like food. I came across this article today on Boston.com reaffirming this truth. I've never worked at the firm mentioned, but I have been a beneficiary of the free dinners after 7:00, which is pretty common at a lot of big law firms. They were wonderful! So are you wondering what's next? Me too! I'm trying to make this flow!
Actually I'm finally responding to Nina, who tagged me. Here it is! Oh and for those of you who don't know, if you tag me, I always change the meme. And anyone who wants to do this too, consider yourself tagged! By the way, this is a food meme if you haven't guessed already. See the connection? ; )
I’m not sure of the exact name of this meme, so I’m giving it a new name. From this day forward (or at least until someone changes it) it shall be called Who Are You & Where Do You Eat?

I’ve added my name city, state and country to this list of people who completed it before me. I’m also supposed to list my top five places to eat. I find that a little difficult at the moment. I don’t really eat out too often. I tend to make most of my meals at home. And when I do eat out, I usually like to try different places.
However, that has changed somewhat for my lunch. I used to bring it just about everyday. For the first two weeks working at my new office, I bought my lunch everyday from the same place. And now I usually go there at least a couple of times a week. My co-workers call it "my place" and a few of them have tried it too.
It’s called Boston Beanstock Coffee Co. and they have amazing meals and treats for not much money. The people who work there are so friendly and nice. Once you go a few times, they remember you. They have wonderful sandwiches, soups, quiche, salads, muffins, and cookies, cupcakes, cakes, and tarts. You won’t believe the amount of baked goods! Well, another of their locations is in the North End, so maybe you will believe it. For those of you who are not familiar with Boston, the North End is known for its amazing array of Italian restaurants and bakeries. When you arrive in the North End you know it, because the smell of the food will take you over. I go to the location on High Street, which is in the Financial District.
The selection of tea and coffee is wonderful too. I don’t spend too much money on coffee and brew my own at home as part of my morning ritual. I tend to change brands depending upon what is on sale and how much I can justify spending. I am somewhat picky though. I like really strong coffee. As a treat, I splurged and bought Boston Beanstock’s Coconut Crème coffee beans and have been grinding them fresh every morning. Perfection! Plus the store also sells T-shirts and they have a display of pocketbooks and belts for sale that were made by a local designer. The downside is that the one near me is only open from 6am to 6pm weekdays. Anyway, I love this place if you couldn’t tell!
And an update on the splog that was stealing my content. Google AdSense acknowledged my DMCA Complaint and the offending website appears to have disappeared!
