The Mrs wanted a gas grill to cook outdoors. After a search on Craigslist I picked up a Weber Q 200 that had great bones but needed a good amount of douching. A couple of hours or elbow grease, a rubber scraper and a scotch brite pad she was ready to cook on.
I can see why a Weber charcoal BBQ guy would like the Q series as a gas grill.

Do you have kids? If the answer is yes, then you need to check out Happy Belly. You can have great food, COCKTAILS [or wine] and your kids don’t have to sit still. I repeat, siting still is not required.
Just think: You don’t have to juggle your desire to have an adult conversation with your role as restaurant-crayon conflict negotiator (we all have been there, when every child needs to use the blue crayon at that moment or they may die).
PLUS your kids will actually have fun too!
Happy Belly is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner at 3 Duncan Street in Gloucester http://www.HappyBellyGloucester.com 978.317.7571
