They pay rent, so what are "dues"?

The merchants have a Board like they have in Condos. The Board has a Director. The dues are for maintenance, and other expenses of the property. The Board collects the rents, provide programs for the tourists, provide security along with the Boston Police, etc.

I just let it slide. It sounds like zereh is on the youngish side. Sounds like something a youngster would say.

Its the opposite. Olives is in Charlestown and just reopening after a fire 2 years ago.

Kingfish Hall was a terrible restaurant and not just becasue a bunch of us got sick after eating there once.

Done the touristy thing at Union Oyster house, and Marliave(sp?), but much prefer getting out of the downtown area.


The Marliave isn't touristy, its a hipster place, with the occasional likes of me going there.

Next time you are at the Black Falcon try the Drydock Cafe -- its only a block or so away ...

Is he the one who tried for the Original "Iron Chef"? I was not not impressed with him as far as food goes. Clearly he is just not good for the industry. Some times people like that manage to stay afloat some how.

I still wouldn't eat at Olive's. They are probably serving roasted rat left over from the fire.
