Restaurant Week Boston

This is just a silly little gem I made that parses the Restaurant Week Boston website and lets you mark which ones you want to go to for lunch, dinner, or lunch and dinner. This gem assumes you have a few restaurants in mind and want to quickly compare their lunch/dinner menus. It prints out direct links to lunch/dinner menus, which you can then open in your browser or send to a friend.

Installation

gem install restaurant_week_boston

Usage

Use the restaurant_week_boston command line script. Call it with --help for help.

So if you want to go to Bond and Aquitaine Bis for lunch or dinner, you'd do:

$ restaurant_week_boston --any 'aquitaine bis',bond

If you want to check out Artu for lunch:

$ restaurant_week_boston --lunch artu

Or maybe Artu's dinner sounds better:

$ restaurant_week_boston --dinner artu

More involved demo

$ restaurant_week_boston -a 'aquitaine bis' -l bond,asana -d bergamot,clink
