Someone should tell The Rice Mansion Inn to update their website. Hasn't been done in a year. I had family coming to Cambridge to visit and they still have Winterfest '07 listed in "Upcocomimg events" and NOTHING else. Doesn't say much for what is going on in Cambridge. Does this mean that nothing has gone on since Feb. of 2007. Come on, what kind of way is this to run a business ? Winterfest 2008 in not listed and it's this weekend..WOW !! Not great business !!
