Trader Joe's (Brookline)
Here's the thing: we simply cannot live without the miraculously low wine prices or the frozen palak paneer; therefore, we will always muster all of our physical strength and mental reserves and enter the grocery mosh pit that is Coolidge Corner's Trader Joe's at rush hour. You'd think we would have learned to restock our fridges when the whole rest of Boston isn't trying to do the same. Nope. Instead, we will take a deep breath, steel our gaze, and thrust our carts into the pasta aisle, then try to snatch that organic whole-wheat penne off the shelf without slowing down or hitting any small children.
