For nostalgia’s sake:
“Gately has decided to buy the newcomers’ omelette stuff at Bread & Circus in Inman Square, Cambridge. It will explain delay, and will be a subtle nonverbal slap at unique dietary requests in general. Bread & Circus is a socially hyperresponsible overpriced grocery full of Cambridge Green Party granola-crunchers, and everything’s like microbiotic and fertilized only with organic genuine llama-shit, etc” (478).
Two things: first, the Fresh Pond Bread & Circus was closer, Pat M. just so you can note in it the log of staffers sans license driving needlessly to Inman (except that he drives past Antitoi Entertainent (sic) in the process, which is the whole plot-driven reason for him to drive way the hell out past the Storrow 500.) First plot point that felt forced, but first time we’ve really had intersection of otherwise unrelated characters.
Second, this quote reminds me of Amy Poehler in Baby Mama saying of the underprocessed organic groceries, “That shit’s just for rich people who hate themselves.”
