How does that happen? I-93 onramp edition

Car on its side at I-93 entrance near South Station

Tim Colby had a good view of a car that wound up on its side on a ramp down to I-93 near South Station this afternoon.

on the food-nerd bona fides of my then-new boss, who also laughed in disbelief at its awfulness. Embarrassed, I apologized: “Normally, I never suggest lunch places I haven’t vetted myself first.” Mercifully, I got many chances to redeem myself by dragging him to infinitely-better spots.

That area has a ton of them. It has only gotten better since that late-2017 take. For instance, there’s a stunning new artisanal Vietnamese place, Viet Citron, just down the street from the Burlington Mall. Pricey compared to Savin Hill / Fields Corner, still recommended. Really brilliant banh mi and pho and rolls. Check my Instagram, @mcslimjb.
