I'll be in Cambridge, MA for a couple days of training at the end of August, and it occurred to me that there just might be a concert I'd be interested in seeing in such a far-away and exotic place. My musical taste is kind of difficult to categorize, but some favorites are Tommy Emmanuel, Alison Krauss, Rory Block, Gene Harris (no longer with us, but a good example nevertheless), Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Porcupine Tree, Nine Inch Nails. Does anybody know of any acts I might enjoy seeing on the 24th?

I have lived here for almost all of my adult life and don't know this-- What is the best package store in the Boston area for beer? I want something like Beers of the World outside Rochester, NY and I can't find it: beers from all over the world, and regional beers from the US. I know of some decent places, but nothing that makes me feel like I have just entered Mecca. Lets try to keep it in the 495 Loop, but I will drive further than that if the place sounds really fantastic. Baseball season is here and summer is coming so I am looking forward to some nice beer.
