08:55 am - facts which you may or may not have known before, but now you do
The menu item for the cheese fondue at Grendel's reads "Serves two." This is incorrect. There appears to be a printing blemish on each and every menu. Upon removing the blemish, the menu clearly states "Serves two armies."

Holy cats. Six of us could not even finish the beast, which was served in crockery the size of one's head. That's not to say we did our damndest, though, because the stuff was very delicious and quite filling. But we left a whole lot behind, and now I reckon I won't need to eat until the end of the month.

Yes, Virginia, there is such a thing as too much cheese, no matter what Wisconsin tries to tell you.

Lies, lies, lies.

"...too much cheese..."
Feh, more of your typical lacto-intolerant propaganda from the wrong side of the cheddar curtain.

Agreed. Now I have to go to Grendel's . . .

I wonder how many people it'll take to get a Truly Challenging Fondue Pot.

It could destroy you!

But when you buy it during Happy Hour, at least you wash it down with delicious booze.

Mmm, Grendel's... Mmm, "Happy Hour" special...

I haven't tried the fondue, but I'll be back with some armies, methinks.

The Happy Hour special is one of the bestest specials in all of Harvard Square, indeed. We got our orders in right under the 7:30 cutoff, too, which made it all the better.

Damn, am I just a lardass, or what? Molly and I have been known to finish a pot. We weren't drinking much though.

Did you also eat ALL YOUR SALAD?

Actually, we didn't. We had garlic bread and some folks were cheating by eating nachos and french dip as well, but STILL.

IT WAS A LOT OF CHEESE. Maybe they put in more because they saw a crowd a-comin.

I did eat all my salad! I'm telling you, I have super special lardass powers!

But yes, I think they do give you more if there's a crowd.

the "give you more if there's a crowd" part, at least, not the "super lardass powers" though I would not doubt those.

Wow, I'd completely forgotten Grendel's still exists. (When I was last eating there regularly I don't think I could even afford the cheese fondue.) Is the salad bar still comprehensive?

There is no salad bar any more, unfortunately. They are only the basement -- the part that USED to be the main floor is now Upstairs at the Square, which used to be Upstairs at the Pudding, until Harvard kicked them out of the building with the Hasty Pudding club.

However -- they've got craft-brewed beer for, like, $3.75/pint.

Man, I haven't been to Grendel's for Happy Hour in ages. And I don't think I've ever gotten the cheese fondue.

Clearly this should be remedied sometime. (With an army or two. I'm thinking if any of my brothers come to visit...)

There is a restaurant called Grendel's? I'm not entirely sure I would want to eat there...
