Buffalo Bo's is a take-out barbecue place on Washington Street, just south of Albano Street. Will report back; Roslindale just hasn't been the same since Tex's stopped doing take-out a few years ago.

As the sun went down yesterday over the Roslindale hills, it sure felt like snow - the sky was close and gray and the air had that "gonna snow" feel. And when I went out around 6:30, "Traffic on the 3s" was reporting "near white-out conditions" on South Shore highways. But this morning, I looked out the window and saw: Lots of brownish green; the only white was the ice left over from the last mini-storm. Wha' happened?

Somebody in Roslindale is deeply offended by the bikini-clad rubber-chicken doggie chew toys in the window of Pet Cabaret on Washington Street:

... He asks how he is supposed to walk his children by our store and explain to them why there are naked chickens in the window. He begs us to remove them so he and his children can walk the streets unmolested by the buxom, suggestive, and latex Henrietta Chicken.

Bruce writes on mAss Backwards that he keeps telling the goddamn kids to stay offa his lawn and they keep ignoring him:

... My wife calls me at work yesterday to tell me that the little shits are at it again. This time they've actually put a CHAIR in my yard, next to the fence, so as to facilitate their climbing over it. I tell her to do nothing about it for now, other than to take the chair and put it in the trash. ...

Road hogs!

Everybody knows the Unwritten Law of Boston Parking: You Shovel It, You Own It. Even Tom Menino is willing to give people 48 hours of cone/chair/bathtub protected space after a storm.

So what to make of the people in Roslindale who are now protecting parts of completely snowless streets - like residents of Knoll (above) and Glendower streets (and no doubt others)? Extra bonus fun: Note the car parked in front of a hydrant.

Kids from the Washington Irving Middle School wait for the bus home in front of Wapo Taco in Roslindale Square today.

Apparently, the Happy Hour, Roslindale Square's finest no-food, bottles-only bar, has been sold to somebody who plans on turning it into a sports bar and grill. Hopefully, they'll keep the pool tables.

Meanwhile, down the street, another hole in the wall bar, the Parkway Gardens, is in the midst of being converted into some sort of restaurant as well. It's now owned by the same people who own the Spring Street Cafe in West Roxbury, so if they keep the same sort of food, you'll finally be able to get quiche for breakfast in the Square.

And that's what I learned while getting my hair cut at the Rialto this morning.

Marc recommends Village Sushi and Grill on Corinth Street in Roslindale Square.

... This is a great restaurant; one of the best Japanese restaurants in Boston. Last night, I got the spicy yaki soba with chicken. It was incredible. ...

The last few times I've been to Bangkok Cafe, there haven't been very many diners. Today, I went to order some chicken massaman curry for lunch. There was nobody in the dining room. When I went back 15 minutes or so later to pick it up, still no people. Unless they're doing a land-office catering business, that's not a real good sign. Oh, well.

Some people say the quality's gone downhill since it opened (see the last review); the limited number of dishes I tend to order (basically, chicken massaman curry and more chicken massaman curry) still taste good.
