Downtown Crossing in Boston on a Summer afternoon. As usual it was truly a “crossing” of all different sorts of people as they went about their day’s business. This day was a little different. Mayor Menino and Suffolk U’s President James McCarthy and others were there to celebrate the opening of a new restaurant The Back Deck which is know for it’s grilled food. A band played, speeches were made, and a cake resembling a barbecue was cut up and shared with the crowd. Mayor Menino, in a playful mood, announced each speaker with a drum roll.
