Here is a place I plan on visiting again at Patriot Place which is a great mall at the Patriots stadium. I think this would be fun for many of us to head over to on Wednesday or Thursday night!

but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and proclaiming
