Like Fry's

A couple of years ago, soon after returning to New England, I went through Fry's Electronics withdrawl. I never did find a store that approached the geeky nerd total immersion of the Bay Area's Fry's stores.

Yesterday I visited the MicroCenter store on Memorial Drive in Cambridge, MA, and it is by far the closest thing I've found. They don't have the shelves and bins of raw materials like integrated circuits, cables, and milky-way bars. But they do have the richest selection of computer stuff that I've found east of the mississippi.

And they even have a decent Macintosh department.

Hi! I miss Fry's too, I don't think anything comes close. As for good sushi in Cambridge, there isn't any, but there's a nice joint in Arlington Center ... I can't recall if it's Mr. Sushi or Sushi Chef. I know they have a branch in Brookline too. BTW, what's a girl gotta do to get on your blogroll? H
