Our Best of Craigslist column highlights ads from the region that you may find entertaining.
Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. You know that friend you have who likes bacon a little too much? Yeah, this could be him. This poster from Central Mass wants to know what you think about on a warm summer day. Innocent enough, right? We should note, however, that his ad, posted in the "platonic," section of Craigslist, started off with the anecdote about how he had a fantasy while outside on his lunch break about a woman who was wearing a bikini made of bacon. Now that he's spilled, it's your turn! (Actually, don't tell us. It could be a violation of our commenting terms.) He probably stopped searching for your "missed connections" Craigslist posting in …

Who’s NOT planning a BBQ this weekend? If the weather holds and you’ve got propane or charcoal, chances are, you’re grilling something with your friends and family. Here, new ideas for keeping your costs down. Sponsored by Home Depot.
Here at Patch, we like to be thrifty, so we talked to two barbeque experts and uncovered some really good ideas to help you save money on your next outdoor party. 1. Start with a marinade. This means planning ahead -- say, Friday. But it’s worth it, says Rick Browne, host of Barbeque America on PBS, because you can pass up that well-marbled ribeye steak and buy a less tender and less expensive choice to grill like a flank steak or chuck steak. Just marinate it or brine for one or two days and then cook long and slow on the barbeque grill to break down tissues but maintain moisture. “You need to include an acid in the marinade, perhaps juice, vinegar or soy sauce, but avoid cola which is so acidic it can turn meat into a soggy mess.” Try…
