Here we come Boston

We are psyched to play Boston today, then fly home tomorrow. I wanna say a big thank you to everyone who came to our shows on this tour. There were some cold rainy days out there, so thanks for coming out in the unfriendly weather. I have so many photos that I still haven't put up yet, so we will take a break when we get home and I will put up the archival photos throughout the cold Los angeles winter.
and in the spirit of going to Boston here are some clips of Mass's favorite son:

New York days

Jen met us in NY and cruised with us to DC
Dean was so happy
Then he got serious
and so did Jen
Then our good friend John Roche hooked us up with some great mp3 cds. Rad!
Brooks made us an amazing meal before we left.
and we gave him a ride to the subway so he could get to practice with Mick Barr. Can't wait to hear what they come up with.
Chef Brooks shunning the spot light, but BOY he knows his way a round the kitchen. 
Blurry Dean and Avi back stage at Santos
After our show at Santos Mel's friend Patrick gave Jen a hair cut.
It looks really good, but she was skeptical at the time

Oh man, so much good food in NY. Michelle Cable from Panache was so sweet and hosted an awesome breakfast.
There was sushi, pancakes,  scramble, ginger bloody marys, and so much more. 
I was really excited to eat everything with chopsticks. I ate pancakes with chopsticks and even stirred my bloody mary with them. Is there nothing you can't do with chopsticks.
Dean and our gracious host. Thanks Michelle!
Lana was sweat enough to join me at the brunch. She had just gotten to NY after visiting her brother at Yale.
This ginger label has the raddest font.
Im telling you Ginger and maple syrup is so good together.
Dean and Dan, who makes a mean tofu scramble when he is not hangin' with MLB pro's.
Julian was the master pancake maker.
Dean found a friend.

Michelle testing the Mimosas

oh man! this waffles were so good!
Jen and the sushi.
