  1. Pete, this chart is very interesting and helpful…do you know when it was created? In other words, is it up to date?? I ask because I’d like to share it on PATCH if it is still relevant….and The MRA is the Mass Restaurant Association? Just confirm.

    I am afraid I have no more information than that it was in the Charles River Regional Chamber’s enewsletter today. I will send you that enewsletter.


  3. Thanks!
