We’re calling an audible! Instead of our planned quarterback sneak this week, we’re calling a run play with Ben making the hand-off to Jerome Bettis. In other words, when we found out Ben had backed out of plans for a North Shore restaurant, we shifted this week’s (MONDAY) run down the street to the ever-reliable Bettis’ Grille. (We can consider Jerome’s debt from The Tackle repaid.)
As noted, the original spot for this week was on the verge of changing owners, names, and menus… And in fact, on July 23 it will be no-man’s land. So, we’re relocating the run to semi-nearby: August Henry’s downtown. The snack bar at the Greyhound station was closer, but that seemed like a worse choice.
