He was in town for an IEEE conference (that I probably should have heard about/gone to) and wanted to get together with some CSHers. We took him to Bartley’s for the finest burger ever crafted in a restaurant, and explained to him that in Massachusetts a Milkshake is called a Frappe. Rory was illin’ (read: being a big pussy) so he didn’t come along.
