We opened a plastic tub and inside, the beauty of a refined restaurant …

 

Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer Turns Sweet 16 May 4-10!

We might be only to be able to see white snow outside beyond our imaginations with icicles hanging off of houses and buildings everywhere.  Temperatures so frigid you can’t imagine that you truly have to go out into it. Snow days galore that affected local business including many of our participants.  Public transportation, traffic and parking are all major inconveniences right now.  This winter is one for the history books.
