Speed's This Week?

Any one know if Speed's is around this week? Was thinking Thu would be a good day to take a long lunch and finally try it, but not sure what the holiday does to his schedule. TIA.

  1. Now that we can link to Places, I'm adding a link with map to answer the timeless question of "where is Speed's, anyway!?"

        Wouldn't it be nice if we could finally search properly? And what happened to the photo feature?

        1. re: Joanie

          If you've got problems with the new and improved search engine, post them on the Site Talk board. Personally I've found it to be really accurate (after I learned how to make it work, which is half the battle). Photo upload is still in the works according to Jacquilynne.

            I don't know if you've looked at it lately, but Chowhound's search feature was very recently upgraded, and is pretty useful now. You need to click on "Options" to get to the good stuff: filtering by board cluster (e.g., Boston/New England), individual board, and sorted by date or relevance. To me, the big missing piece was sorting by date, which works great now.

          Thanks for the location link! I had no idea Speed's is close to me, I can walk there on a nice day!

          I may have to schedule a "work from home" day sometime soon.... hmmmm....

        3. Is he ever parked closer to a T stop, or is this the only place he sets up?

              Thanks Dax, I added that info to the Speed's Place page. The more we can get on there, the better for everyone. This has got to be one of the top 3 most asked about palces on Chowhounnd Boston :-)

              (I reported the ugly URL as well)

          1. Anyone in the area know if he's there today? Based on the weather I would guess no. I won't drive down from Wilmington unless it's a nicer day. I'm about 50/50 in catching him there.

              50/50's pretty good! I made 4 failed attempts before finally succeeding on my 5th try!
