Archdruid: The Magically (Delicious?) Sour Irish Red Ale Aged in Whiskey Barrels

September 8, 2016

Should we have known the Leprechauns would become irked because we created a flotilla out of ten of the tiny green clad troublemakers? Probably. Barrel aging has been a large part of the focus at Clown Shoes for a number of years.  Our team has been vigilant and fortunate regarding quality control, experiencing almost nothing […]

Third Party Candidate 2016: Phil (Filthy!) Thomas

March 31, 2016

Is anyone else tired of hearing people say they are thinking of moving to Canada or to Costa Rica? Not that we don’t get the reasoning… Our political system terrifies people who aren’t insane, with real life comic book villains dueling it out to claim the role of The President of The United States of […]

My Favorite Restaurant is a Food Hut

October 14, 2015

Recently, my favorite restaurant is JMP Food Hut, located in the food court of The Super 88 in Allston (Boston).  The Biryani is the only credible Biryani my wife and I have found in the state.  The Chicken Vindaloo is also extraordinary.  Owned and operated by a hard working and incredibly nice family, if you […]

Billy, The Homeless Chess Master

March 3, 2015

William Collins has played chess with me for over twenty years. When the weather is warm, we meet at the stone chess tables in Harvard Square, shaded by the trees in front of Au Bon Pain. I’m pretty good, expert level. He’s way better. Billy has been homeless since 1997. It never occurred to me […]

The Whistler

October 10, 2014

Musicality is not encoded in my genes, so it’s rare that I whistle. But not last night. Last night tortured melodies and twisted harmonies were pushed through my teeth quite enjoyably. For me, at least. My wife looked a tiny bit horrified. It got me to thinking about The Catcher in The Rye. I haven’t […]

Unexpected Good News ? Always The Best!

October 8, 2014

When I wrote a blog on Monday, it was without hope of quick resolution. Surprisingly, the owners and management of Quality Wine & Spirits took to heart our plight and have worked with us aggressively this week to resolve the conflict. We no longer have any hard feelings toward Quality and ask that our customers […]
