Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid

Several times in life you are caught without a camera. It is rare these days with so much technology. With no iPhone, I'm relegated to the crappy cellphone camera as my real camera (Nikon sSLR) is too big to lug everywhere. Many of these times I've captured these moments but never shared. Here is a quick flashback to my Spring through blurry eyes.

In January, the addition to Tufts University School of Dental Medicine were opened along with our department's new clinic. 5 new floors - very nice!

One of my patients is a lobster fisherman who also works at Fenway Park. After finishing his implants, he showed up to his post op appointment with a plastic bag. He handed it to me and inside were 4 LIVE lobsters crawling all over each other and a bag of ice. Needless to say, I had all variants of lobster that weekend with the final meal a tip of the cap to George Costanza and Kosmo Kramer.

On our recent trip home, we also checked out many new things around Nashville that have popped up since we moved to Boston. Imogene + Willie in the Gulch is a clothing store/mini-factory/performance space transformed from an old service station where they make their own jeans. You want them made to measure: you got it! They also manufacture Ralph Lauren's RRL line of denim there which will fetch a nice price of around $400-650 for a pair of jeans. Crazy! And yet it sadly doesn't seem THAT crazy after being brainwashed in Massachusetts. Outside the store depending on the day of the week is a van that sells Tacos (Mas Tacos), and they are awesome! If you're ever on 12th and see the taco truck, pull over and grab a couple. It will be much better than that wrap you were likely to get at Frothy Monkey (loser!). I also went by Grimey's for Record Store Day to pick up some things and to hear the Alex Chilton tribute band with Eef Barzelay of Clem Snide and Grimey himself. At the same time, I unknowingly missed the Raconteurs playing live up the street at Jack White's Third Man Records on 7th (I drug Whitney by there before we left town to pick up the new Dead Weather's record.....she wanted to die). We also sampled some chocolate from Olive & Sinclair's in East Nashville - very tasty. Finally, we had dinner at Whiskey Kitchen right next to Jeff Fisher the night before the draft. Oh, we also managed to see most of our friends who we miss so dearly. Can't wait to be back!

Dry Up.
