Arcade, Bar, Speakeasy Dreamboat

Dear Reader, Is it worth the hype? That’s the question I kept asking myself as more than one person talked up Cambridge’s A4cade. What is A4cade (probably pronounced “arcade”)? It’s a speakeasy-style, club-bar, arcade joint that has fancy cocktails and gooey grilled cheese sandwiches. That sentence alone is enough to entice me, but what is... Continue Reading →

Hit or Miss

Dear Reader, Do you enjoy chucking weapons at a wall? You do?? Well, then, ax throwing may just be the new fun sport for you. First — axe throwing… or is it ax throwing? According to Merriam-Webster, both spellings are correct but the version with the -e at the end is more common (in the... Continue Reading →

Hello Beautiful!

Dear Reader, I’m peacing out of Boston pretty soon for the summer (more here), which is causing me early onset nostalgia for this city that is, hands down, just gorge. I’m usually a fan of words, but today, I’m going to show you rather than tell you why this Boston is lit af. So, without... Continue Reading →

I’m Sorry About Your Move

Dear Reader, Moving is agony. As a kid, I grew up in one house, so my first real moving experience was into a college dorm room. Although boxing up clothing and finding twin XL bedsheets felt like a real pain at the time, as an adult with actual furniture, I now know that that move... Continue Reading →

Café Days — Boston 2022

One of the biggest changes for me has been the return to working in public places, or more specifically, in coffee shops. Right at the start of the pandemic (you know, when we thought...

Baby Plane

Dear Reader, Asking about someone’s weight is awkward at best and downright rude at worst. However, when the ticketing agent at the Boston Logan airport asked me how much I weighed, I already knew that this question was not only standard, but also crucial. For a last-minute work trip to Provincetown, Massachusetts, I was in... Continue Reading →

Gently Down the Stream

Dear Reader, They say, “the best things in life are free.” And, when they say the “best things” they are probably referring to health, love, family, friends, etc. — which are great, but there are very many other beautiful free things out there! I’m a bit of a scavenger (more here), finding free clothes and... Continue Reading →

Yes! And…

Dear Reader, Young city people on TV sitcoms are always getting themselves wrapped up in the darndest situations. They have the most eclectic interests. You find them attending a Burning Man-esque festival in the desert like in “Crazy Ex-Girlfirend,” taking cooking classes like Monica and Joey in "Friends," or randomly playing laser tag like Barney...

[Review] Boston Winery

Dear Reader, Wine in the U.S. is big business — a $220 billion industry to be more exact. While 90% of the wines produced in the U.S. come from California, it turns out that each and every U.S. state has at least one winery. While Boston is not known for its wine-growing abilities, the city is... Continue Reading →
