Western Mass LOBSTER ROLLS !! BILLYBOY, WANDERING JEW, GREGG, AYERSIAN, (etc ..!!)

14 of us met up at our first stop, the WILLIAMSBURG SNACK BAR in Haydenville, MA
Northampton is such a lovely college town..their slogan is "Walk into something wonderful"

 
Here's our wonderful host , GREGG, at our first stop, the WILLIAMSBURG SNACK BAR, near Northampton
 
Dale ("wandering Jew") was kind enough to bring us donuts from ALLIE'S in Rhode Island..
here's our legendary Roadfooder, Billyboy, trying to get his perfect shot

Our Roadfood.com crowd is starting to gather...the 2 blonde gals in the back left , Jennifer, and Donna 
are neighbors of Gregg's, and joined us for the first stop....
In the ivory jacket in the middle is BETH, one of our favorite Roadfooders..

You guys want to see some FOOD already, right ?!?
Here's some BELLY CLAMS

  LOBSTER ROLL !!  ...with paprika topping from WILLIAMSBURG SNACK BAR
Jennifer and Donna (Gregg's condo neighbors) light up the front left and right. BETH is the one with her fork in the air...
Gregg (www.wheregreggeats.com) has got his Beatles shirt on ..
Wandering Jew is in his Michigan sweatshirt .


  
MUCH MORE COMING !!  (gotta go deal poker now...)

      What in the world!?  ELLEN posting pics of SEAFOOD?! now I've seen it all.....

    In keeping up with my reputation, I DID have a BURGER, however !
    (would you expect anything less from me, lol )


    But since I know there's a lot of LOBSTER ROLL lovers out there,  I posted these seafood pics in due respect of you all!

     Ellen, the pics you took with WJ, looks nothing like him!!

    that seemed to be the consensus on the other "teaser" thread with the group pic.      Maybe they sent an imposter this time?!?
    I sure thought I was meating up with the real WJ again , but who knows, lol

    What I'll probably do is put the rest of my pics on my Flickr photo album, and paste a link to it on here...

    (due to the fact that the response to this thread has been slim, so far..)

    We'll see if it picks up later on tonight first !

    My guess is that people are waiting for the whole thing ... Folks were begging for reports of the teaser thread.

    Group shot:



    (L. to R.) are Michael, Tim (TnTinCT), Dana, Ellen (Ellen4641) Terri (TnTinCT), Bill (Billyboy), Karilyn, Dale (WanderingJew),
    Beth (Bethgrd), Steve, Chris (Ayersian), the owners of Williamsburg Snack Bar, and Gregg

    Sorry I've been so slow in getting my pics up.  Work has been most busy ever since I returned so I've been bunking out not long after I get home most nights.

    Just the way I like my salt, with a little bit of fries!  I'd take just a plate of those.  Granted, everything looks spectacular!

    Gregg and I enjoyed some nice little walks  thru the center of Northampton,                                                  which is only about 1/4 mile from his condo.. 


    Gregg was an unbelievable host.......I was grateful to have special VIP "couch crashout" privileges, as well as "guest laptop" privileges...
     
     Gregg had us come back to his condo for a pit stop  in-between the Williamsburg Snack Bar and the next stop , Bub's BBQ.
    What a nice gesture, as it gave us all time to recuperate before we stuffed ourselves with BBQ...!
    You won't find that on the large bus tours, huh ?!?
    Some of us enjoyed handcrafted beers. Gregg has a fridge just like mine, with tons of hot sauces, bbq sauces, and mustards... (a true Roadfooders fridge)
     
    Gregg's condo building was a FORMER SCHOOLHOUSE... we all thought it was a reat neat place..

    Yours truly enjoys one those handcrafted beers at Gregg's place...
    note the TV screen........is that a PASTRAMI sandwich ?!?
    Ironically, that was the sight that awaited me when I arrived late Sat. 16th... Gregg said it was merely coincidence, as he had his DVR  of SANDWICH PARADISE paused on that spot...
    he thought it was Katz's pastrami, but Billyboy said "NO, it's the STAGE DELI" !
    Us Roadfooders know our pastrami!

    Gregg with his bloody mary
     
    MORE COMING ASAP !  BUB'S BBQ coming next !

    I'm really not believing the price on that lobster roll--I knew it got cheap last year, but man!  Looks great!

    I can only speak for myself, but I was waiting for the rest of the photos and commentary, Ellen!  The food, friends and scenery look great so far, and I look forward to seeing the rest posted here.

    that's okay, nocarolina, seafood's not my thing , either...
    I think you will enjoy the next 2 stops better, BUB'S BBQ, and JOE'S PIZZA....
    (the latter has been around over 70 years! )  Killer garlic bread!  Best I ever had..

    Ellen,

    I think you're right about the good stuff on the trip report thread.  I feel like a kid in a candy store with all these choices to look at.  Hey, I was in a candy the store the other night with another Roadfooder; what could be better?  Now if I could only go back to being a kid.

    A belated comment: This is another outstanding and interesting trip report as yours always are.

    (plus the fact that I feel like I've been neglecting my bf these last few days ...
    even when he was hanging out here, I alloted a good chunk of time to this report.  Hate to get behind on a Trip Report, lol)

    I still feel 30 !
