Riding around with Tommy.
I got to ride around town with Tommy, while we delivered Christmas packages for Gill Fishman. I got to hear Tommy book a hardcore band for this weekend’s show in Harvard Square and ask about food allergies and special reuqests. After visiting many alienating office buildings downtown we headed for Saigon Sandwich on Washington St. I love Saigon Sandwich although right now I think I love Ba Le on Dot Ave. a little more. But Saigon Sandwich is next to the site of the long-shuttered Pagoda Theater where I first saw Jackie Chan in Armor of God. I still remember leaving the theater, exhilarated and walking through an empty edge of downtown. Saigon Sandwich was not yet open but eventually my memory will fuse everything into a single powerful idea.
