Post-weekend odds and ends

-- I know who I'm nominating. Do you?

-- Overheard at Brian Boru on Saturday evening: "You are the closest thing to a pomegranate I've seen all summer."  -- Man, to [non-plussed] woman

-- Saw the Legacy Theater production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown on Friday night at Thornton Academy. Great deceptively simple set, fun with costume/prop proportions, and talented cast (particularly Audra Anne Curtis, whose brash, bossy Lucy was pitch-perfect, and Ben Row, who does a great precocious/overeager dog). There are shows this weekend too.

-- Otto Pizza, at 576 Congress Street = delicious. Mango-pepper-basil pizza???!!! Mashed potato-bacon pizza???!!!!!!!!?? Thin crust. Just the right bit of crispy. Open late ('til 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays, 9 pm the rest of the week). $3 slices no matter the topping. Yay.
