It's March! That means Spring is almost here ... almost.  Alot of fun things happening in East Cambridge this month and it is sure to continue throughout the Spring.  Hope to see you in the neighborhood!


St. Paddy's on the East Side


Everybody is Irish on St Patricks Day, and that includes the folks at our favorite Italian restaurant East Side Bar and Grille.


Every year the chefs at East Side dust off "Chuck's Mom's Secret Cornbeef Recipe" in time for St Paddy's Day.  It's the best Cornbeef and Cabbage Dinner this side of the tracks (maybe both sides), and it's only here for one night a year.


Just remember to make a reservation for March 17th because this cornbeef is legendary!



MMM .... Bacon!
