Several MBTA workers have tested positive and the masks required policy is a joke and we don't shut down the MBTA.

They're stringent with reservations, distancing, and masks too. Hope this person shakes it off.

I've been able to substitute a CA flight with a NJ road trip, and baseball is a farce this year anyway, so the greatest tragedy for summer leisure is that I've been paddling precisely twice, and it's already August.

I don't think they closed the one on the Mystic River near Medford Square.

I drove past the Kendall Square location, and it was busy. They also have a location in Waltham and two in Newton (which are very nice). I believe that all of them are open except the Brighton location.

I’ll try to snare an evening slot this week.
