The Demise of Woodman's

Leslie | Jun 3, 2001 10:31 PM

Okay, I know that people have been talking about the demise of Woodman's for a long time; but I have been steadfast in my loyalty. Now, the time has come for me to cast aside the trappings of my youth. I went hiking with a dear friend,(okay, a significant other...) on Crane's Beach, in the mist, and I thought, "Woodman's will really be the piece de resistance of our North Shore experience"...Okay, I know they've been pricey for awhile...But $40.00 for a plate of steamers, and a clam dinner? I mean, c'mon, IT'S A CLAM SHACK,people!!!! We're talkin'no veggies and sides!!! It's fried food you eat on a summer's afternoon when you're fried and exhausted!!! They don't have wine on tap in plastic glasses anymore, they charge $4.50 for those little bottles they serve in airplanes!!! PUH-leeze!!! From now on, I'm gonnah drive half-way back to Boston, to the Sea-Witch; where the Lobster is cheap, the wine is reasonable, and they serve broccoli and potatoes with your dinner!!! The loss of innocence is SO sad......And, I might add,since the weather was bad, there wasn't even a line, and they STILL didn't measure up....I'm gonnah go cry into my pillow now......
