Eye and Eye Optics

Do you need some new styling spectacles? Eye and Eye Optics is the place to get that great pair of glasses or sunglasses, at a reasonable price, while supporting local business. Plus, your new pair will be ready in about a day. Recently, Erin got a new pair of vintage glasses (see below) that she is quite pleased with. The owner Bobin Nicholson is a native of Jamaica, who has lived in Boston since he was young. He will surely welcome you into his shop and help you find that perfect pair of eye wear.

Sweet Life Bakery and Café Opening Soon!

From the look of the new awning on Dot Ave. in Lower Mills, Sweet Life Bakery and Café is about to open. The word on the street (from a kind Dorchesterite sitting on the bench out front) is that they will be open in three weeks. Let's hope!

UPDATE: The Lower Mills Branch of the Boston Public Library is reporting that Sweet Life is now open. We hope to drop by soon and let you know what we think!

Art or a Misplaced Toy?

Recently, while wondering around Lower Dot, we came across this figurine... Is it a permanent art installment or a misplaced child's toy?
