Lower Dot is for Deval

From the signs and bumber stickers around our neighborhood it is apparent that Lower Dot is voting for Deval Patrick for governor in the Democratic Primary. Plus he is the only candidate with an office in Dorchester and he doesn't live too far away in the nearby town of Milton.

We will be taking our pilgrimage to Florian Hall in Dorchester to vote for him after we get out of work that day. Don't forget to vote on Tuesday September 19th!

Flat Black Coffee Company (Coffee House)

We get our caffeine fix and help out the world when we buy a cup of coffee from Flat Black! Chris loves reading his paper there with a cappuccino or a Flat Black Freeze when it's hot out, and Erin likes to stick to her basic hot or iced coffees. Most of their selections are organically grown, shade grown, and fair trade. In addition to being socially and environmentally conscious, their drinks are great and the atmosphere hip and relaxed. The red swivel chairs are fun, and you're in luck when the window seats are open! The baked goods are tasty, as well.
1170 Washington St. Dorchester
Located in Lower Mills at the intersection of Dorchester Ave, and Washington St. Just north of the Milton T stop (Ashmont-Mattapan Trolley).

We made Dotinis today! It was awesome. What is a Dotini you say? It is named after our beloved Dot (Dorchester) and is created by mixing citron vodka, Chambord, lemonade, and those "famous from your childhood" Dots candies. It has been made famous by both the Ashmont Grill and "Martinis on the Avenue", which is now an annual fund-raiser for the St. Mark's Main Streets (and Fields Corner Main Streets).
