Provincial New Yorkers think Bostonians don't eat burgers
It's true! Look at this headline from today's Times: New York Burger Stand on Boston's Seafood Turf?
Yes, it's all about the godawful decision Michael Ross has forced us into: Turn a giant unused men's room on the Common into a frappey New York Shake Shack or rent it out to a local who wants to sell Freedom Trail Ketchup with his burgers. Or as the Times frames it:
First the reviled Yankees won the World Series; now Shake Shack, the New York burger stand, might stake a claim in one of Boston's most sacred spaces.
The paper mentions our very own Jay Fitzgerald, first off the blog on the topic, although, naturally, being the Times, they don't link to his post or, for that matter, even bother to check whether the outrage they attribute to him actually came from his site (it doesn't).
But maybe I'm just cranky because I haven't had lunch yet. Maybe I'll go out into the backyard and rustle up some lobster.
