Wednesday’s Guide: Greenway Lights, Beer Garden, Nor’easter Coming?

The halfway point! Your guide to Wednesday:

Greenway lights, under your control?


Notable news:

Greenway eyes beer and wine garden

Hoping to leverage as a “hip” moneymaker, the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy is looking to open a 5,000-square-foot “biergarten/wine bar” at the corner of Purchase and High streets. Boston Herald has more on the garden that will operate three to five nights a week during warm-weather months.

A nor’easter could be headed our way, but it might not mean snow

Happy spring, right? Well, not so fast. The first of April could see the wrath of a nor’easter, but not with the blizzard like conditions you may think. This storm will simply be a coastal storm with northeasterly winds. The Boston Globe has more on the storm, and a reference back to April Fools’ blizzard.”
