April 2, 2017

It was a beautiful day. For the first time in a long time, the air was warm and the sun was shinning, and it was a perfect day to stroll over to the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) on Prospect Street for an Open Mosque Day.

Alternative Facts?

...nah, not really

I was reading an interesting article in the Cambridge Chronicle about the old Harvard Square Theater. 

The building is located on Church Street and I walk past it every week on my way to class. 

It has always caught my eye because of the beautiful nostalgic murals painted on the building's exterior.

Women in Cinema Series

"Beginning in March of 2017, the Brattle is excited to present “A Year of Women in Cinema.” For the following 12 months, each one of our bi-monthly calendars will include at least one repertory series highlighting films by, for, or about women. We kick off this effort with a program of films from the early days of Hollywood that were directed, written, edited, produced, or just plain willed into existence by women."

Sonia

"A Place Of Love"

Sonia Sater wants the family’s newest nightclub, Sonia, to be “a place of love.” And judging by the amount of care and workmanship that local artisans put into rehabbing the much revered (and of course, closed), T.T. the Bear’s Place, Sonia’s will indubitably be a place of love.

Sonia Sater is the sister of Joseph and Nabil Sater who own the Middle East Restaurant & Nightclub and ZuZu’s in Central Square, Cambridge, Mass.

Sign of the Times

Porter Square

Signs going up...

Cambridge is a city of "squares".  If you're new to the area or a traveler passing through, it might be a challenge finding the "downtown" area of the town.  Once you come to grips with the layout, one can appreciate the culture, attitude, and attributes of the many "squares" of Cambridge.  Of course, Harvard Square has been covered in the media lately because of the perceived extinction of it's smaller traditional "mom & pop" style stores that have been around for close to 100 years.
