Toast Failure

June 24th, 2006 | Uncategorized

I am SO, SO sorry to anyone who showed up at the Toast Lounge in Somerville tonight expecting to see me there. I was supposed to come by and hang out after the reading I did at Simmons College for the Center for New Words, from 9 to 10. But my driver and I couldn’t find the place! And didn’t have a map! Or a phone number. I even got out on the street in Union Square and walked around asking people where Toast was, to no avail. Anyhow. I just got back to the hotel after being in the car for over an hour. And I’m terribly sorry and frustrated about the whole fiasco.

    I lived in Cambridge on the Sommerville border for 5 years until 2002 & have been back visiting a couple times and I have *never* heard of that place. (if it makes you feel any better!)

    I went to see you at Toast with my partner and 2 of our friends … we wondered what happened and decided to bale at midnight … so thanks for the explanation. Toast is a great place so one thing the evening did achieve was a reminder to us that “we should come here more often!” so it was not all a loss … guess will be getting the books sales … good luck with your book tour. Peace.

    Hey Alison, sorry you couldn’t find it. It doesn’t help that the place is practically underground; I should have given you directions before you left Simmons! In any case, it was a great reading Friday – thanks for coming!
