Boston International Antique Book Fair - 11/16
2007-11-16 19:06:00
The Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair starts tonight at Hynes Convention Center. For those of you that are into old books, this is the place to be. It's funny that this is coming up because just last week I bought a first edition of I am Legend - the book that has a movie coming out soon with Will Smith. If I had known, I would have waited to see what kind of deal I could get at the fair.The fair is now in its 31st year and also features maps, atlases, autographs, and prints. What I really want is a first edition English version of The Count of Monte Cristo, but the going rate for one of those is $10K.Over 120 rare book dealers from the United States, England, Germany and The Netherlands are expected to exhibit and sell rare, collectible and antiquarian books, modern first editions, manuscripts, autographs, maps, atlases, and a plethora of other literary ephemera. Fine and decorative prints will also be featured.Is anyone out there into collecting books? Do they appre...

Patriots Cheerleaders at Clarke's Tonight
2007-11-16 18:55:00
Does anyone out there read Barstool Sports? You know the one, the free magazine that always has a scantily clad woman on the cover? Well I read it - for the articles of course. But up until this past week, I'd never really found anything useful.This past week though, they did a feature on the Patriots Cheerleaders in their Halloween costumes. I never really paid attention to the cheerleaders, having only watched Patriots games on TV, you don't really see the cheerleaders very much. But, after reading the article, I will admit that some of these girls are quite beautiful.Click (here) for a link to the article so you can see the girls for yourself. And if you're free tonight, the girls will be at Clar ke's in Fanuil Hall from 7pm to 9pm for a meet and greet sponsored by Coors. Beer and beautiful women - what a wonderful Friday night.PS. The writer for BSS didn't know who Quinn Kingston was dressed as. I'm pretty sure she's dressed as Gwen Stefani.Know of Any Interesting...

This post is for all the college students in the area. If it weren't for scholarships and grants, my loans would be a lot huger than they currently are.

A "Spa" for Men - 379 Club
2007-11-15 20:48:00
Any guys out there get their hair cut at 379 Club in Allston? I read about this place a few weeks ago and the concept was interesting. Basically it's a spa for men. It has pool tables, flat screen tvs, a VIP lounge, and computer stations amongst other things.Services include haircuts, massages, and "foot and hand detail" (if you're going to get a manicure/pedicure, just own up to it). I haven't gotten to the interesting part yet though.Here's the interesting part: the club offers a tiered membership program that ranges from $480 to $2200 a year and includes unlimited haircuts. Hmmmm...unlimited haircuts - this could be interesting. I basically get my hair cut once a month (it costs me $35 each time). Pricey? Yes. But I used to get my hair cut at SuperCuts and I came out pissed off everytime thinking to myself "It's ok, it'll grow back in 2 weeks"So at $35 a pop, monthly haircuts are costing me $420 a year (it pains me to do that math). And at the end of the month...
Rachael Ray Book Signing 11/17
2007-11-15 18:50:00
Many thanks to Missy for letting me know about this upcoming event. Rachael Ray (you guys watch Food Network right?) is coming to the Barnes and Nobles at the Prudential Center this upcoming Saturday 11/17 for a book signing.The superstar chef, beloved TV host, and best selling author serves up all new recipes for everything from Date Night Dinners to Fancy Fake-Outs in this yum-0 cookbook that includes a super-delish selection of fast and fabulous 15 minute meals.According to flyers and ads in the paper, the book signing is at 3pm, but if you swing by the B&N at the Prudential Center, you'll see a sign that says they'll be handing out wristbands at noon on Saturday and only folks that have wristbands will get to participate in this event. So if you want an autographed copy, get there early. I'm not sure if you can get a wristband, leave, and then return later at 3pm. You could try calling the store and asking. Or bring a book with you to read while you stand in line.Know...

Haru: A Review
2007-11-14 21:09:00
Has anyone else noticed that the only restaurants opening in Boston lately are either sushi restaurants or steak houses? Not that I'm complaining, I love myself some sushi or a nice medium rare ribeye. But what ever happened to variety?We went to Haru this past weekend to check it out. For those of you that haven't been keeping up, Haru (a Japanese chain out of NYC) has taken over the space that was formerly Dick's Last Resort at the Prudential Center. Click (here) to read more about the restaurant.How was the food? I'd have to say average. I found the menu to be a little short. Maybe I'm too used to Douzo or Fugakyu where the menu goes on for pages and pages. But nothing on the menu really jumped off the page at me. We tried a couple of the specialty rolls and I have to say that the ingredients they chose to go into each roll just didn't mesh well together. Dear Haru: Please redo your specialty rolls menu.Lastly, we had a few pieces of nigiri: Salmon, Yellowtail, S...

Bass Pro Shops Opens Tonight - 11/14
2007-11-14 20:56:00
The first ever New England Bass Pro Shops (Outdoor World) opens tonight in Foxborough! I can barely contain my excitement. There are very few retail shops out there that instill me with excitement whenever I go. Ikea is one of them and Bass Pro Shops is the other. I feel like a kid in a candy store.While you'll find a huge selection of outdoor gear, Bass Pro Shops stores are also part museum, art gallery, antique store, aquarium, education, conservation and entertainment center. The Grand Opening is set for Thursday, November 15th but a special "Evening for Conservation" to help benefit area conservation groups will be held on Wednesday night, November 14th beginning at 6 PM. This exciting, celebrity-packed event is free and open to the public.Curious about the description? Bass Pro Shops are like Swiss Army Knives. They've got everything. Hehe. You'll just have to see it for yourself. What am I most excited for?A cave structure surrounds the aquarium, which will be st...

Avril Lavigne Concert Presale Password

Hey, hey, you, you, I don't like your girlfriend (I think I used too many commas). Anyway, if you're into teeny bopper music, Avril Lavigne is coming to the Verizon Wireless Center in Manchester, NH on April 13, 2008 and I have the presale password.Presale starts Today at 10am (in about 10 minutes) and ends on Friday 11/16 at noon. Get your tickets before the general public. I've always wondered if these presales really help with getting better seats, or if they're just a scam to make me THINK I'm getting better seats so I think I'm special and subsequently buy the tickets.Click (here) for the link to LiveNation.

The Lonely Maiden Filming Starts Today
2007-11-12 21:55:00
So I hopped into a cab this morning to head to the airport and right around the financial district area, I started seeing those neon green cardboard signs with big black letters on them. I'd seen enough of them this summer to realize this meant they're filming a movie somewhere nearby.So my cab turned onto Summer street, headed into the Seaport District, and lo and behold more neon signs with arrows. The signs bore the letters "LM." I was racking my brains.....perhaps they're doing a "Last of the Mohicans" remake? Well after a little poking around, I've discovered that the movie is The Lonely Maiden . Filming starts today and stars Morgan Freeman, William H. Macey, and Christopher Walken (here)."Maiden," written by Michael LeSieur ("You, Me and Dupree"), centers on three museum security guards who have become attached to the artwork they've watched over for decades. When they learn their beloved pieces are to be transferred to another museum, they concoct a scheme to "steal"...

Dresden Dolls Tickets On Sale Tomorrow - 11/10
2007-11-09 16:33:00
I've never actually listened to the Dresden Dolls , but I do like how they get all dressed up as part of their act. I remember a year or two ago, they played at the Paradise Rock Club near BU and there was a huge crowd of fans dressed up as well. It's always cool when you really love a band and can really get into their performances.I wiki'ed them since I don't know much about them and learned two things. First, they're from Boston - which gives them +12 to their coolness factor. And then there's this little tidbit:They describe their style as "Brechtian punk cabaret", a phrase invented by Palmer because she was "terrified" that the press would invent a name that "would involve the word gothic," and are part of an underground dark cabaret movement that started gaining momentum in the early 1990s.So tickets go on sale tomorrow, 11/10 at noon EST at Tick etmaster. They're concert is going to be at the Orpheum Theatre on Dec 29, 2007 (7:30 PM).As usual, log on at 11:55am t...

How To Dress Like Celebrities
2007-11-08 18:10:00
I read GQ, and I read Esquire. I see what celebrities wear, and there's no way I could ever afford that type of clothing (nor would I ever spend that much money on clothes). But I've got something better for you and way more affordable: T-Shirts.Say goodbye to Kitson and hello to Collegehype. First and foremost, apologies to Bloggery reader Rebecca who emailed me about this two weeks ago. It took an article in the Globe to really kick me in the butt and get me writing.Collegehype is local so their t-shirts mean a lot more to us than that stuff at Kitson (which caters to the Los Angeles celebrity crowd). Collegehype's shirts were: used in Ben Affleck's recent movie Gone Baby Gone, ordered and worn by Curt Schilling during the 2004 playoffs, and most recently worn by Kevin Youkilis (YOUUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuk) after our recent 2007 win.Click (here) read the Globe article.

Cellphone Service + The Big Dig
2007-11-08 17:26:00
All I can say is that it's about time. When I had to switch to AT&T, from Verizon (for work) I was bummed out. My verizon phone used to get reception everywhere. AT&T not so much. One of the biggest issues I had was driving through the Big Dig. Whether going to and from a meeting, or shuttling clients to and from the airport: I couldn't have a phone conversation if I was downtown because I know I'd be cut off.Now, with the federal clearance, four large wireless companies have told officials with the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority that they will install the equipment in stages, beginning in about two weeks.The project, which could cost up to $7.6 million, will be paid for by the carriers and be completed within three to six months, the companies said.These estimates are never accurate, so I'm just hoping by this time next year I'll be able to talk on my phone while driving through the Big Dig.Click (here) to read the Globe article for yourself.Know of Any Interest...

November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month
2007-11-07 18:12:00
I recently found out that one of the members of my extended family has Alzheimer's. I didn't hear too many of the details, but it's really quite sad to think about what he must be going through: not being able to recognize family members, and even having trouble putting sentences together as words have begun to fail him.With November being Alzheimer's Awareness month, I'm sure you'll all see inklings of it in the news. Don't ignore it. If someone you know is showing symptoms, it's important to encourage them to go for a memory screening test so that at least you'll know early.November 13th is National Memory Screening Day, you can click (here) to find a facility that carries out screening tests. And also get some memory and successful aging tips from the Alzheimer's Foundation.The important thing to recognize is that Alzheimer's Disease is NOT a normal part of aging.

Wow, so I guess this is third hand gossip, but I'll share anyway; because I'm sure there's someone out there that's interested.

He also has deals going with Movado and Glaceau (think vitamin water). While Brady is undecided, In Touch says his supermodel sweetheart, former Victoria's Secret gal Gisele Bundchen, supports the idea.I'd rather see Gisele in her underwear.

Expected occupants of the offices? International bankers, hedge-fund managers, venture capitalists, law firms. In other words: $$$$$.Druker only does high end, so expect rents to be sky-high.

Continental Moves to Terminal A - 11/11
2007-11-06 17:38:00
For those of you like me who make frequent trips to the airport, this might be good to know. Starting Nov. 11th, Conti nental Airlines is moving to Terminal A from its original home in Terminal C. Hopefully this means that Jetblue is going to expand some more. I In 2006, Continental handled 1,177,672 passengers at Logan, representing 4.2 percent of the airport’s traffic. So far this year, the airline is carrying nearly 5 percent more passengers than in the same period in 2006.Hopefully they make a smooth transition and get the word out quickly, because frequent flyers are creatures of habit. I can already see folks showing up at the wrong terminal out of habit and missing their flights. People will be disgruntled.Click (here) if you'd like to read the original press release.Know of Any Interesting Boston News or Events That You'd Like to Share?Email me at beantownblog@gmail.com

Members-Only University Clubs

There's an article in yesterday's Globe that talks about downtown Univers ity Clubs . These are member's-only clubs for the mover and shaker alumni in the area to dine. The four universities featured: BU, BC, UMass, and Harvard.Catering to well-heeled alumni and power brokers, the clubs are popular destinations for business lunches, meetings, and formal functions. If there's one thing I've learned after joining the workforce, it's who you know, not what you know. And so I ask, why isn't there an MIT club? If there was one, I'd join in a heartbeat. Something about members-only makes it seem exclusive and desirable.According to the article, membership at the BC and UMass clubs are invitation only. That leaves BU and Harvard.

If you play blackjack, you're playing against the casino and the odds aren't in your favor. If you're playing online at 3am, you're playing against drunks and stupid people, and it's easy to take their money.

Congratulations to the Red Sox. You guys are on the cover of all the newspapers today: the Globe, the Metro, and BostonNOW. In addition to that, every single show on 96.9 talk radio thus far this morning has been talking about you.Funny story, I was on a flight back from JFK last Thursday during the game and literally everyone on the plane was watching the game. They usually shut off the tv's on Jetblue for the safety announcement, but the game was so intense that the flight attendant actually came on the speaker and said "We're going to wait until the commercials to do the safety announcement." It was great.I'm sure everyone watched last night. Great game. Great way to end the series. The first game of the World Series against the Rockies will be at Fenway on Wednesday night.
