My youngest brother is going to Harvard!

He just sent email announcing that he accepted their offer of admission. Obviously, he will need a high-school graduation present in a few weeks, and I was thinking that I would give him some money and a list of places where he is allowed to spend it:

Mary Chung's, Pandemonium, Brezhnev's, Toscanini's, T fare to Arnold Arboretum, etc.

Any suggestions?

When my parents (briefly) lived near Ithaca, we gave them actual gift certificates to several places in town; you might try that (though it might be a logistical pain for your friends to do for you [though then again, bats22 is presumably visiting every single one of these places now that he again lives in the Boston area...]).

Something that forces him to get off the T would be my suggestion. There used to be a good Indian place in Waltham, but I've forgotten its name. Similarly, commuter rail to Rockport or Gloucester are a very good way to spend a day in September or October.

(And I'm glad you listed the Arnold.)

Diesel? Will he get eaten by the lesbians? (Will he love it if he is?)

That's exciting for him! He must be an excellent student; getting into places at that level of Harvard is much harder than when we got into MIT.

Diesel? Those lesbian pool hustlers will rob him blind.

Hm. I've not been in quite a while. (I think I completely avoided Somerville/Cambridge on my last business trip to BU, and I think I only visited pekmez & family on the previous one. So it'd probably be back to when I went to a meeting at MIT two years ago.)
