Oxford Spa

Blue Moo 2
Unless you are from New England, you're probably be asking yourself why is there a picture of a sandwich in a post about a spa... and what is a food blog doing talking about a place where people get mud baths anyway? Good question! In this case we are talking about the little known third definition of spa which means "soda fountain"... and is apparently only used this way in the general vicinity of Boston. I know it's weird, but it's not my fault now is it? Why would people invent a new definition for a word for no apparent reason? I don't know, but that's what they did so here we are.

So besides giving you a new definition for spa to impress your friends with, I don't really have a lot to say about Oxford... it's a delightful sandwich shop about 2 blocks from my apartment and it is quite good. Cambridge isn't exactly hurting for sandwich shops, but this is genuinely one of the better ones... not quite as good as Hi-Rise, but equivalent to Darwin's.
