Photo of the Week – August 22, 2020

During a virtual roll-call at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday, the 18th, the Rhode Island delegation was represented by John Bordieri, the executive chef at Iggy’s Boardwalk, a seafood restaurant on Narragansett Bay.  Bordieri initially bemoaned how badly both the seafood and restaurant industries have been hit by the current COVID-19 pandemic – while a masked man stood next to him holding a plate of fried calamari.

As many discussed the beautiful beachfront setting and / or the idea of dining on fried calamari, many wondered who the beefy man perched beside Bordieri is – and if he does private parties!  I don’t know what calamari or beachfronts have to do with politics, but this setup added a colorful diversion to an otherwise lackluster convention.

Paw-licious!

A close friend of mine recently noticed this in the meat section (where else?) of a Dallas grocery store.  I know what you people are thinking.  And I’m as shocked as you are.  Isn’t USD 3.88 a bit pricy for any fowl food?
