Midnight In The Garden Of Beer And Hot Dogs


These days at the TD Banknorth Garden things are actually pretty busy. The Celtics were going strong until recent weeks, and we’ve heard the Bruins are actually popular this year. But sometimes it seems as if the area is a sea of Dunkin Donuts and college bars, except for that one nice lady who sells sausages late night. However, we’re not too crazy about meat on a stick. So where are the good eats that aren’t served by a large man walking up and down the steps during a basketball game? If your current economic status has you nearly living on the government cheese, think about heading to Halftime and grabbing two large cheese slices. They’re not only gigantic, but delicious.

If you’re looking for a restaurant that doesn’t sling slices of pepperoni, there are definitely other options. Johnnie’s On The Side is right around the corner in the newly-developing West End. If you’re around for sobering up after the Celtics game the night before, Sunday’s bring their popular Reggae Brunch from 12-4pm. We will even be awake by 4pm on a Saturday, and Johnnie’s is definitely worth a stop. Their thick and fluffy buttermilk pancakes only run for six dollars, and when you include the gorgeous decor and Reggae music in the price, it practically costs nothing for a great pick-me-up in the morning.
