Second stop on the sketchtistic march of pillage and plunder was The Boot; my first time there. I sampled the fine but pricey oyster stew. Run by the proprietors of the late, lamented Relative Theory Records, The Boot is determined to use locally-grown foods as much as possible. It's a worthy goal, but their prices reflect the cost of good intentions. One of those American ironies that many of the people who share their beliefs won't be able to afford to act on them. Simplicity is gonna cost you. I don't know about you, but I'm getting kind of tired of American ironies.
