“The Hip Zipper Lodge.” That’s what Pete DiMartino wants to name the bar that he dreams of opening, even as he recovers from serious wounds suffered during the Boston Marathon bombings. And while that may seem like an odd name (but who are we to judge?) it echoes strength, and defiance of adversity when you realize that it is a direct nod to one of the injuries he sustained. You see, Pete had the pull tab of a zipper imbedded in his hip by the blast: his bar will be named after his shrapnel.
We at One Fat Frog wish Pete – and all the victims of the attack – full and speedy recoveries. We know that Boston is already bouncing back strong, and that the spirit of people like Pete will never be cowed by adversity.
