Greg B Mystic Seaport SeaMusic Festival June 2012 (153* d) RE: Mystic Seaport SeaMusic Festival June 2012 16 Apr 12


It's not the logic, it's the locus. The people who made the decision probably weren't among those who were welcomed there when in the Seaport area. More likely, they were welcomed in cocktail reception and catered lunches and dinners. No, it was just another joint they drove by on Greenmanville. The community, and the businesses in it, probably aren't even on their radar. They should be. But you have to ask--- if the mission is "preservation" then what is a 3-decades-old neighboring independent business worth? How does Flo's real entrepreneurship relate to the "pretend" businesses (e.g., chandler, tavern, bank, cooper, print-shop, clock shop) portrayed within the Seaport itself?
