Random thoughts while in Boston
That lobster roll from Row 34 was buttery, rich and good. Trillium Brewing Company should be on everyone’s radar. Why am I eating onion rings with everything? I ate a burger named after LeBron James, and he won the game that night ... just saying! I should have called more people “Good Will Hunting.” The short-rib grilled cheese from Tatte Bakery and Cafe is one of the best things I have eaten this year.
