A Soulful City Girl

Meet Ali McGuirk

Before Annie Lennox of the Eurythmics was famous, she used to wait tables in New York City. Imagine the thrill of being served Spaghetti Bolognese by someone who would soon become an international rock star.

Although the game of fame has changed drastically over the decades, one thing remains the same; you never know what plethora of talent your waiter or barista may be dishing out when their shift is over.

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.

Sarchioni’s Variety

A Relic of Cambridge Past

There isn’t any breaking news about Sarchioni’s Variety other than; places like this are fading away from the Cambridge landscape.

Sarchioni’s reminds me of the now closed, Troy Anthony’s Barbershop, because Sarchioni’s like Troy’s, is a neighborhood meeting spot for anyone, but particularly for those who were born and raised in this tight-knit neighborhood. Everyone knows everyone, and everyone knows proprietor Rob Sarchioni.

Cambridge Uncovered, Ep. 17: "Changing Wellington-Harrington"

For a long time, not much changed in the Wellington-Harrington neighborhood -- a community perhaps better known as the Inman Square area. But within the last decade, the neighborhood around Inman and Cambridge streets has seen a lot of changes. How are these changes affecting the area's longtime residents and businesses?

The Boutique Fabulous: An Expedition in Shopping

Local store makes Inman Square even more unique

As in most squares, centers and strips, Inman Square is a popular location for restaurants, taverns, children’s stores and many other places of business. One store separates itself from all of the others. It's located at 1309 Cambridge St. and it's called Boutique Fabulous. Outside of the store you will find one of a kind pieces of furniture and the like at affordable prices.

SAY GOODBYE TO SEVERAL LIFETIMES

I met the mom first. I met her the same way I met most of my neighbors, gardening the front yard. While I toiled, hoed, and spread dirt and perennials, they would stop and comment, always thrilled to see weeds plucked and beauty prevail. Over time, names were given and true acquaintances blossomed.
