Dads, are you home during the week with the kids and looking for an excuse to get out of the house? Join me this Thursday at Kickstand cafe in Arlington. Located right next to the Minuteman bike path, you can get here by walking, biking, the MBTA and there is plenty of parking nearby. They have a really great menu of made-to-order salads, sandwiches, pastries, coffee and tea. So come join us for a late lunch or just a quick cup of coffee. Bring the kids! I will be heading to a local park afterwards with my son, assuming the weather cooperates.
