This months Improper Bostonian has an article on meals under ten bucks. Talk of the small plates at Z-Squared are of particular interest to me, I love that place.

Snow Emergency!

So it's snowing and there is a snow emergency, nothing exciting.

But this, this is kind of exciting.

Porter BostonNow Hawker - hot or not?

Apparently the BostonNow Hawker at Porter is getting rave reviews. Now I rush by this man everyday and I'll admit he does a nice job at what he does, but my opinion is it's a little annoying.

Jomilkman says

he operates with the rapid-fire style of salesmanship of an olde tyme newsboy, belting out, but not quite hollering, his pitches in the general direction of every commuter as each enters the station. he projects with gusto. it's as though he's offering up free cups of crucial coffee, not these cheapo rags that'll be used later to soak up spills on the seats of the trains.... he's kind of awesome
Random commenter
The only difference between BostonNow/Metro Hawkers and the guys who sell Spare Change is that one of them smells less like piss during the day. They are all just as annoying.
What do you think? Is this guy hot or not?

Somerville Tea Party

I have been drinking more tea recently and have been having trouble living up to the delicious brew I get while out eating Chinese food. Even though i walk past the Tea Zone all the time, I've never been in. I'm kicking myself, cuz it looks awesome.

Child Labor laws violated

Attorney General issued a press release citing child labor violations. Somerville and Cambridge stores included.
Read Press Release
Note at the bottom someone comments on how having these kids work past 10 is completely acceptable because they are keeping kids off streets. Most of the citations were in places such as Burlington, Hyannis, Newton and Taunton. Also for stores such as Hollister, Things Remembered, KB toys, and The Children's Place. (hehe).
Lets be realistic. Working is awesome for teenagers. Allows social experience they may not be getting elsewhere, allows them to create their own work ethic, as well as earn money they can selfishly spend. I think teenagers should be working. It is super, but i don't think saying working past 10 is going to stop them from getting into trouble. Laws are there for a reason, and if you think working in the mall is what cures your kid of peer pressure, and a whole list of other things that leads to drugs/violence etc. You are wrong. It may help a little, but having a child work till 5am is definitely not the answer.

Kids Play Indoors

There is almost nothing worse than winter activities when the kids are sick of them. They just want to go outside and play, run around build snow men., play on the playgrounds. But all the playgrounds are covered in snow, and when the snow melts they are muddy and gross. Well the YMCA is opening its doors for kids to run around for $1. Parents/caregiver must supervise their kids constantly, but it will give you a chance to meet up with other parents while your children run out some of that pre-nap energy. The YMCA is right next to the library. Run off some energy, and go check out the library for story time.
The program is funded by the Somerville Children's Network and is run on Wednesday's 9a-11a. Eligible ages are 0-5years.

Children's indoor play space
101 Highland Ave. Somerville
Cost: Every child is $1.
Every Wednesday

Playspace will be closed the week of school vacations. (Wed. 2/20)
