tale of two portlands
i missed this article the weekend before last in the times. you should read it, if you haven't already! i have strong objections to one sentence: "portland's waterfront may have a disney feel, but there are some places to discover." what? portland, maine? disney? what is she referring to, exactly? the dead fish smell? the lobster boats? stray cats? aside from that glaring error, it's kind of an interesting summary of food in portland (i just skimmed the part about portland, oregon, cause who cares about that portland? ours came first, after all). it includes a reference to two fat cats bakery, scene of the cupcake consumption back when david came to visit. i need to go over there and see if they make carrot cakes, for bean's birthday party!
