  1. Another great write-up! Compliments, too, on your visuals skills, i.e., the photos. These are presented so deliciously, I swear, they must be publicity shots, not pictures of what all patrons enjoy.

    Now you’ve done it. I’m tempted to invest the ten hours or so to drive up from Pennsylvania. Or maybe, booking a flight to Logan would be quicker. Once we have freedom of movement again, of course.

    So, what’s the deal here? Does the Massachusetts Visitors’ Bureau kick cash back to you every time you create these cravings?

    • Thank you! Thank you! Nope just plain ole & classic iPhone shots. And I WISH I got paid to write all these, wouldn’t that be the life, eating for cash, but nope it’s all just a hobby, and the meals are a added bonus.

  2. Great way to look at it.

    Of course, when I snap pictures with my iPhone, most of the time I’m surprised to get something worth keeping. Occasionally, even, the effort yields something worth posting. Well, what do you know?
