You’d never guess by looking at this picnic area that this used to be one of the best McDonald’s Playlands around.  This Westboro location had it all:  hot metal slides, merry-go-rounds that taught kids about centrifugal force the hard way, the safe-haven of the Mayor McCheese tower which left parents powerless upon claiming their children.

In the Westborough Shopping center is a Boston Market that used to be Abdow’s Big Boy.  I’m not sure how this became a thing to do but probably once a month my family would drive form Holliston to Westborough and pretty much spend an evening in this plaza, starting with a dinner at Abdow’s, then walk over to Caldor, […]

Tatnuck Bookseller

March 13th, 2008 · 6 Comments

What can I say?  I love Tatnuck.  They took an empty Star Market in the Westborough Shopping Center and turned it into an awesome independent bookstore.  Don’t let the modest lowercase lettering fool you, (t)Tatnuck competes with the corporate bookstores down the road and thanks to local support, continues to be part of the local business scene. I remember their […]
