Boston-area Fans of the 1961 film West Side Story--Hear Ye, Hear Ye!!

The 1961 film West Side Story will be playing in selected movie theatres, nationwide, including the Greater Boston area. It will be aired on Sunday, June 24th, and on Wednesday, June 27th. Tickets can be purchased at the box offices of any of the selected movie theatres, or online using fathom events.com, fandango.com, or even on amazon.com.

The more people purchase tickets for this great, golden oldie-but-keeper of a classic movie-musical, the better it will be for this film. Hope I've been of some help here.

Turkey trots through downtown Boston T-Mobile store

BOSTON (WHDH) - A turkey turned heads Tuesday when it stopped by a T-Mobile store in downtown Boston.

The bird’s brief visit to the wireless company’s Washington Street location prompted customers and staffers to pull out their cellphones and record the unusual encounter. After flapping into the back of the business, the turkey could be seen making its way back toward the entrance.

Striving for Accuracy in the Details of a New Novel

The main characters in this new novel are members of an Italian family in Boston, c. 1950s, that includes several plasterers. Many scenes occur in the home of one of the extended familes and on the job. I can easily script the plastering and construction aspects with accuracy (thanks to my own family history and no, I'm not Italian but do have a Sicilian s.i.l..) It's the details about the city and neighborhoods where I have to do loads of research and that's actually how I found this wonderful site.

Red line was stuck in Harvard Square for 20 Minutes Again

Won't switch out trains in need of repairs, blame tracks. If one car breaks down the whole line stops. Incompetent management should put all resources into new cars.

Rebuttal to Boston Globe's endorsement of Mayor Walsh

I am the co-chair of Coalition Against Indycar Boston. I'm posting this on behalf of CAIB attorney David Lurie.

​The Globe’s full-throated endorsement of Mayor Walsh’s re-election bid (“A Second Term for Mayor Walsh”, October 23) concludes that “Walsh’s record over the last four years should give voters confidence in his leadership.” Glaringly omitted from the editorial is any mention of the IndyCar debacle, which most definitely should give Boston voters second thoughts about the Mayor’s judgment, temperament, and susceptibility to insider influence.

MBTA mishegas at South Station

After not taking Commuter Rail for several weeks, I got a surprise as I had to pass through a gauntlet at South Station on the way to Fairmount early this afternoon. Some Campbell's-kids looking junior T employees confronted every aspiring passenger at the entry to Track 9. They demanded tickets for that specific train. I carped as I had to unburden myself of my Haymarket goodies and coffee to dig into my shirt pocket. The kid blocking me tried to be solemn in saying, "It's in the tariff!" Read more.

Make Mine a Treasure Chest

The outgoing governor, international press, and local mucky-mucks all sat silently as the historical time capsule was opened at the Museum of Fine Arts. Originally placed in a cornerstone of the Massachusetts statehouse by our forefathers, the contents could provide more clues to our colonial past. The crowd was transfixed, what was in the box? The possibilities seemed endless that January, 2015 night

Goran Visnjic Returns as Flynn

In a surprise turn of events, just a few days after canceling the time-travel drama “Timeless”, NBC changed its decision and ordered a ten-episode second season. It seems like the “Timeless” team have changed history yet again! After the show’s initial cancellation, the series creators, Ryan and Kripke tweeted that the show is considering other possibilities before making a decision. The loyal fanbase also shared their disapproval on social media and even started a #SaveTimeless campaign.

So What Do You Call 'Em? The story of a summertime debate.

Bostonians are frequently razzed not only for our accents but our lingo as well. Words like packie, spuckie and tonic cause puzzled looks from visitors. In the summer, another local word takes prominence: Jimmies. For those of you that don’t know, “Jimmies” is Beantown’s name for chocolate sprinkles, the bits of candy topping on ice cream cones for added texture. I actually thought all locals use this word, but my research proved otherwise.

Faivish Pewzner Fan of Boston Bagels

When Faivish Pewzner last visited Boston, he was excited about many things. But the one thing he was most looking forward, was tasting the city's famous bagels. Boston is a creative town with an outdoor culture that loves good food. Art and music are really big here, and there are foodie spots everywhere you turn. From oysters, noodles, chicken, tuna, and egg salads, to a large variety of pastries, this city really has something for everyone. Over the last few years, Boston has been undergoing a bagel transformation. The city’s bagel bakeries have a lot to offer.
