Little known/little cared about fact: The Swellesley Report sorta got its start at a business meeting at The Maugus restaurant on Washington Street. We had started the blog just to document some local sledding hills, but a breakfast conversation with a business contact at Maugus really got us thinking more about expanding the site to track more than you really need to know about the town.
All of which brings us to today’s article in the Globe West section of the Boston Globe (written by the very swell Michael Fitzgerald), which says The Maugus is where business people in the area like to meet and strike deals. The article makes mention of Buck’s, a crazily decorated eatery in Silicon Valley, where business people on the west coast hobnob. I’ve been there, too, and as the article mentions, quite a different scene than at the much mellower Maugus.
