“Lately, I go to Stanza Bar and have a Romeo y Julieta cigar. As a player, I wouldn’t really go out for cocktails or a drink, but now that I’m a coach, I enjoy it.”

“My wife and I usually stick around the North End. If I don’t want to go out to eat, she’ll go grab pasta from Bricco Salumeria and Pasta Shop and make it at home.”
