This blog entry was marginally incorrect, as around 7:30 p.m. you met me on lovely State Street and then took me and my colleague to an awesome African restaurant, replete with vegan options. And then we saw the oh-so-breathtaking Museum of Contemporary Art. Your life is far more exciting than your blog suggests.....
