Rob van Winkle smashing things with a bat while Janeane Garofalo looks on with concern and muted fear just flashed into my head.

Oh, I hope so. Might have a work thing.

I am no longer sick and will probably be well by Wednesday, so I feel confident I can make it this week. How's parking in that area?

When we were there on the 8th parking was ok, though we did get there early for dinner (around 6:20pm). The side streets off Mass Ave are all Cambridge permit parking, but I was able to find a spot on Mass Ave across the street from Joe Sent Me (all the stuff on the same side was taken). I guess I don't know it if will be harder to find a spot later in the evening.

Re: parking - there are two Somerville metered lots an easy .5 mile walk from Joe's. One's at 45 Day St. and the other's at 27 Buena Vista Rd.

I have a side street visitor parking permit for that area. MeMail me if you want to use it!

You may want to consider that most parking meters are moot after 6PM or 8PM, depending on the area.

Also, 77 bus stop (Cameron Ave.) right across the street.

Current NWS forecast for Cambridge on Wednesday:

"Snow likely, mainly before 8am. Mostly sunny, with a high near 14. Blustery, with a northwest wind 13 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%."

And yet, the high today is supposed to be 43F. It's like the weather knows we've moved to Wednesday for trivia.

This snow thing sounds like it got a little more serious overnight ---storm should be long over by trivia-time but I gotta think parking might be an even bigger problem than normal.

It's no skin off my nose, as I'll be walking over from Davis, but I wondering --- if the snow emergency rules are still in place should we call off trivia? Or soldier on?

Turns out Horace & I will be taking the bus this week for other reasons, so we won't be needing parking.

I guess there is also the option of parking at Alewife and walking over from Davis for those who need to drive.

It turns out I'll be taking the T to Davis, which isn't far from the bar. See you all there.

Today's theme's include:
A Decade Ago In Stuff
Hold the 'Phone
Televangelists Suck
Wild Stallion
So I guess, try to remember what you were doing in 2004.

I'm really good at snax! And I think I remember a lot of things that happened a decade ago. At least, a lot of things that happened in the third season of America's Next Top Model.

Super cold out, plus I'm slightly sick, not sure if I'll make it. We'll see how it fits with when I'm done at work.
posted by maryr at 11:30 AM on January 22, 2014

Sadly I'm a bit skint and can't make it this time. Hope to see you all next time, though.

Yep, too much cold for me, meteorologically and medically, I'm going home. Good luck, guys!

Horace and I are here, in the back corner (where we were last time).

Um, also, don't shoot me, but I forgot the gift certificates from last time. Sorry. The snow addled my brain :/
posted by DiscourseMarker at 3:52 PM on January 22, 2014

The recap - only 1 point and it would've been another Taters sweep. But next time we have *three* gift certificates that I promise I will bring.
