Adventures In Dining Out With A Toddler

Tonight Kendra and I decided we were in the mood for Indian food. When I lived in Boston, good Indian food could be found in every neighborhood. Out in the burbs, it’s not as easy to find. Undeterred, we bundled up Addie, and headed to Bollywood Grill. Addie has had Indian leftovers before, and loved […]

Hard Truth, Levity, and Hope – Refugees in Lowell, MA

I grew up in an inner-city north of Boston. Though it had been a booming mill town during the Industrial Revolution, my hometown went through hard times when jobs went south, and then overseas.

Kendra decided we should go out to eat for breakfast this morning, so Jen took us to Buck’s of Woodside. Located in an unassuming cluster of shops, the interior was completely unexpected.

Cafe Verde

Today I met up with Kendra and Addison at a fairly new cafe in Lawrence, MA – Cafe Verde. They were hanging out with our friend Meg, and Meg’s mom. Kendra had already eaten when I got there, but the food looked too good to resist, so I ordered a Croque-Madame sandwich – a grilled […]

Lesbians love coffee shops…

It’s true. We love them as much as camping, tea, and even cats. Maybe it’s because as social workers, teachers and perpetual students, all we can afford is coffee. Regardless, we love them. The mother-in-law is in town for the weekend, so the wife and I took personal days so we could travel out to […]

The Search for the Perfect Clams

Boris and Jane made it up to us yesterday! We are getting ready for a fun trip to Canada. Sadly enough, I have never actually been to Canada despite its proximity for my entire 31 years. Heck, I have been to Niagara Falls three times and I still haven’t made it to the other side […]
