The Middle East is the name of a night club and restaurant that we often play in Boston. The food here is pretty good. I order lamb kebob, which comes with rice pilaf, beans, salad and a delicous homemade harissa (a thick hot sauce). It is nothing unusual for this type of fare but is a nice meal and it certainly gives me the energy for a good show. Unfortunately, I cannot say all good things about this Boston venue. A friend of mine tried to come to the show but was not let in because his license expired. This guy is clearly in his thirties and he was on the guest list. WTF?
