a short coda on the Pizza Place :
they were not , of course open on Thanksgiving , Christmas and Easter.
the Boston Marathon comes right through the main street W -> E . which is of course not Main Street.
the owners always has a card table out in front of the PP , which had a few other small shops and a very small parking lot.
they stood there and served runners tasty town well water. with those paper hats they wore
I asked him is his business suffered during that event , a holiday here. Bazillions come from far and near to see
so many people suffer , badly.
he smiled and said he couldn't make the Pies fast enough you see you can't cross the street for about 4 hours.
so if you were really smart you chose his side of the street. I live on the other side, so no pizza for me !
now days its more commercial with Gaator Aid stations etc and a much swifter clean up all along the course.
years ago it too ages to clean up all the trash.
