Men’s food/travel site Thrillist posed a piece this week titled “Does your Boston suburb suck? An investigation.” Naturally, they give Wellesley the business:
Wellesley has long dealt with an identity crisis. All the other schools in the Bay State Conference sneered at the Raiders, imagining a town populated entirely by the yuppies from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, even if that wasn’t always totally true. Although now, with its Downtown’s fancy rebirth and scores of smaller homes knocked down in favor of McMansions built to the property lines (I’m looking at you, Pilgrim Rd), it might be true. Great sandwiches at Linden, though!
If it makes you feel any better, Newton, Weston and other neighboring communities get theirs as well.
