Things that make me feel ambivalent about Boston #3

You can't swing a dead cat in that town without hitting one of these:

What is UP with that? And the thing is, people act like the coffee there is GOOD, when in fact it is sour funky hot dog water.

Sorry, Bostonians, but that is some nasty shit.

And the most heinous offense of all:

Dunkin' Donuts at Fenway? Fenway?

Coffee and donuts at the ball game is just wrong.

Spooney will demonstrate, below, some appropriate ball park fare:

And you don't have to have beer and pizza. You can have beer and a hot dog. Or beer and Italian sausage. Or beer and peanuts or beer and a pretzel if you're not that hungry.

So get a grip. And when you need coffee, drink Starbucks like every other person on the fuckin' planet for fuck's sake.

That tour of Boston's Dunkin Donut shops was awesome!
Next time I wanna do the historical "McTour" of Boston.

My favorite ballpark fare: Beer, and another beer!

There is nothing more beautiful than drinking beer from a plastic cup at a baseball game. That picture made my mouth water.

Dunkin's recently announced that they plan to triple the number of their stores by 2020, so look out! They're coming your way. It's manifest destiny.

I can't wait until they inundate Seattle. It'll be payback for Starbucks.

I'm so jealous.

If the Boston Fried Dough dude would only franchise out, he could ruin Dunkin Donuts!!

How much was the food at Fenway? At Coors field they think a dog and a beer is worth about 10 fucking dollars...

No ballpark is cheap, so, yeah they charge 7 bucks for a cup of beer at Fenway.

But it's good beer.

Really good beer.
