In spite of spending his whole life in California and Massachusetts, Matt is somehow a Falcons fan. Whenever the Falcons play, Matt wears a Falcons jersey for good luck.
On a recent Sunday that the Falcons played, we were on the Pike exiting in Cambridge, and Matt got smack talked by the tollbooth worker! He said something about his fantasy team and that he hoped the Falcons would lose.Filed under Greater Boston (General) | Comment (0)
A few weeks ago, there was a moment when I realized that I had become a true New Englander. Upon landing in San Francisco, I immediately lamented the fact that there were no Dunkin Donuts. I’m not in it for the donuts, or even for the coffee…I just wanted a large, plain iced tea. That’s it.
I don’t like Starbucks iced teas. Sure, they have plenty of choices, but they all have this perfumey taste that I do not enjoy. Peet’s is a little better. I like the simplicity of a plain, iced black tea. And Dunkies is far cheaper than Starbucks.
Other passable places for iced tea are Panera Bread (it’s about the only thing there that isn’t an ungodly amount of calories) and Wawa, when I happen to be in New Jersey or Pennsylvania. My neighborhood bakery, Keltic Krust also has a ginger peach iced tea that I wholeheartedly enjoy.
But for value? Dunkin Donuts iced tea is where it’s at…and during my travels in California during a bit of a heat wave, I really missed it.Filed under New England | Comment (0)
