July 26, 2010

Bob the Chef's on Columbus Ave. is no more and hasn't been for some time. Would that it had held in there, after decades, like Charlie's (maintained by a dynastic Greek family) down the street so that we had one remaining soul food spot in the South End. Since its demise it's gone through 2 upscale jazz club concepts and both folded (the Stork CLub, a doomed name, lasting less than a year), and is about to embark on a third incarnation.

Cleaned the house on Sunday then spent the afternoon at the garden. Too hot to do a damn thing except read, relax and water - myself and the plants. The free ice machine at HoJo's (2 blocks away across from Fenway Park) has been fixed! Now it shoots cubes like nobody's business. So happy! Had ice water all afternoon.

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
