JP Foodies Night - Wonder Spice Cafe at Wonder Spice Cafe

Their Drunken Noodles intoxicate.  Their Pad Thai satisfies. Yelp gives them three stars.  I respectfully disagree.  This place consistently serves four-star food. Join us  for an evening at Jamaica Plain's standby Thai restaurant to let us know what you think.  See More

background noise driving me crazy

I live in Hyde Square, on Forbes Street, very close to Centre. Across the street from my place is a small lot behind some businesses, and there's some kind of hydraulic pump or something back there that goes on and off regularly and emits a low, extended whine that lasts what seems to be at least a minute, growing louder before dying out. Then maybe a minute of silence, and the process starts again. I think it gets activated only at night, or at least I don't notice it during the daytime, but…See More

giving away four small rhododendron plants

Posted on July 9, 2010 at 8:22am 1 Comment

I have four very young rhododendrons I want to give to a good home (and a better, sunnier spot). If you're willing to do the work of digging, I'd be happy to give them to a fellow JP-ite (JP-er? Jamaican?) I live in Hyde Square and have pretty flexible hours most days. (I'd want to be around when you dig them up.)

Thanks!

please explain street-cleaning rules to me...I'm confused...

Posted on July 5, 2010 at 2:09pm 1 Comment

Hi. I live on Forbes Street. On my side of the street it says they do street cleaning on the first and third Monday of the month, from 8 to 12. When these days come, I don't see any cars moving out of the way. Then again, I got a parking ticket recently, on my side, when it was the fourth Monday. I'm in the middle of contesting it so haven't heard the result back yet, but I triple-checked that it was not the first or third Monday. BTW, I don't see evidence that my street is ever being… Continue
