I know most people really don't know the difference between good house music and bad house music (or even bad techno for that matter), but for those few of us house-heads out there who really recognize talent and live for the next time our feet can carry us away (and anyone who just loves to dance and brings good vibes with them), this party Sunday is a must.
If you were MICHAEL FLAHERTY this morning, you might start to think hard about SAM YOON's ground game. As previously reported, the two Democractic Mayoral candidates, who'll be facing off against each other in less than two months for the right to take on Menino in the November primary, were scheduled to go head-to-head this morning on WFNX's morning show, the Sandbox
This morning, Red Line MBTA service was delayed for over an hour. The Boston Police department tweeted that someone had been struck by a train at South Station.
Boston.com originally reported that the man had walked into the side of an oncoming train, receiving minor injuries. (See original Boston.com post here) which prompted about 15 comments about what an idiot the "victim" was.
Congressman Barney Frank didn’t just remove his gloves tonight when he stepped in the arena at the Dartmouth Council on Aging. The liberal heavyweight dipped his mitts in glue and glass, and proceeded to swing mercilessly at simpletons who came to spar. The event was not supposed to be a Town Hall shebang – Frank was scheduled to address the Dartmouth Democratic Town Committee, and ultimately chose the larger venue to entertain America’s infectious municipal congregation craze – but he was more than happy to pummel dingbats for two-and-a-half straight hours.
I'm a constant defender of Fox 25 News here in Boston, and not just because of Doug Meehan's prize-winning tan and Keba Arnold's smile. Their morning newscast is the most entertaining around - a sweet mix of straight local stories and breakfast table candy corn. But today they went too far. Today - I can't believe I'm writing this - they ran a report claiming that beer guts are en vogue.
probably heard of the world's ugliest dog competition that happens
every year at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif. (even Animal
Planet broadcasts the stupid thing). I have to say the dogs are pretty
fuckin' ugly (just look at Lulu up there, how'd you like to wake up to
that every morning licking your face? Eesh!) and I'm not sure how on
anyone actually lives with a dog like that, but to each their own I
This week in the Phoenix, David Bernstein handicaps the two Boston City Councilors who are duking it out this fall in a runoff election to see who will win the right to go head-to-head with Menino in the all-important Democratic primary this November.
The inside dope, Bernstein reports, says Southie native Michael Flaherty has the edge over Sam Yoon, who was born in South Korea and educated at Princeton and Harvard's JFK School of Government.
And oh, the giggles we had. Wheeeeee!
Did you know that people who work in the hospitality industry complain about how Restaurant Week is for "rookies"? That, secretly, restaurant managers and staff and, hell, even OWNERS hate you, if you dare to patronize a restaurant that may normally be out of your price range, but is offering a prix fixe menu for the week? They hate you.
One week ago today ThePhoenix.com posted The Punch That Took Two Lives - an in-depth feature about a 34-year-old East Cambridge man named Joe Donovan who was imprisoned for life in 1993 for a murder that he did not commit. Within hours of my piece going live, a reader named Rafael wrote the following comment: “Sorry - I stopped reading when I got to what the part with the cat.
