Chicken Wings $4
Pulled Pork Sliders $4

Exciting little newsflash. The Sorenson Center for the Arts at Babson College just ordered 40 Dogtown and Babson Boulders calendars. I am honored to have a bunch of my calendars go to Babson College, probably the most important of the many life projects of
Roger Ward Babson.
Sharon dropped off one of her beautiful calendars for me and I have to tell you they are just the perfect gift. The images look like paintings, the kind of painting where they make everything just right. $15 and the just right for mailing out as a gift. It’s a no-brainer for anyone you know who loves our area.
