Three Things to Know Today – Monday May, 16, 2016:
1. Whew, what a week of neighborhood events! Over 350 voted in the Neighborhood Council election to bring on six new members and then hundreds showed up for Rep. Michlewitz’s Cornhole Classic charity benefit. Gabor Korodi continues his series on the Downtown Waterfront Planning Process and files a report on last week’s meeting covering Public Realm Benefits. And of course, there were lots of votes and presentations at the Residents’ Association and Neighborhood Council meetings. Take a minute to look at our events calendar and help plan out the rest of your week!
2. Extra Extra! Boston Chefs Share Their Favorite Outdoor Dining Spots From the Past and Present. In addition to restaurants opening their street front windows to enjoy the nice weather, outdoor seating is always in high demand with patrons. With outdoor dining week approaching, local restauranteurs shared their favorite things about outdoor dining. Whether it is the “tucked away” Bricco Panetteria, or the memory of docking the boat at Lewis Wharf during the feasts for some “delicious street fare,” Eater Boston has the full story.
Bonus Extra! Fistfight review of State Street Provisions at The Boston Globe. Read it here.
3. Tourists and locals alike can appreciate the authentic Italian feel throughout the North End neighborhood, appropriately captured below:
