BOSTON — A New York bartender who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombings is trying to put his life on a new path as he recovers.
Pete DiMartino says he used his weeks of hospitalization to work on a plan for a brewery he wants to open.
The 28-year-old plans to call it "Hip Zipper Lodge" because part of a zipper was embedded near his hip when the first bomb exploded.
It burned his left leg and doctors had to rebuild the back of his right leg.
DiMartino is recovering at his parents' home in Webster, N.Y. He says he appreciates life more now that he and other loved ones survived the attack.
He's learning to walk again and doing plenty of laughing, saying he doesn't want anyone to feel sorry for him.
