Tuesday’s Brief: Classic Greek Flavors, NightHawk, First Feast

Things to know for Tuesday

Today is Tuesday, August 28. Here’s a joke to brighten your morning:

“A man and his 9-year-old son recently caught a 34-inch striped bass off Boston’s Sargent’s Wharf. It’s the largest creature hauled in from the harbor since a fisherman hooked a former Whitey Bulger business associate!” – Ben Alper, North Ender and Comedy Writer.

Here’s what else you need to know for today…

The KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market is honored to welcome James Beard Award Winner and Top Chef Masters contestant Chef Jody Adams for a very special hands-on cooking experience.

Earth Matters: The comforting sight of the common nighthawk

Nighthawks are not hawks, but are in the same family as whip-poor-wills.“[T]hey are very common in cities, where they will be seen any summer day toward dusk flying, skimming, sailing, and swooping over the tops of the buildings, upon the gravel roofs of which they often lay their eggs. They nest generally on rocky hillsides or in open woods, laying their two eggs upon the top of a flat rock,” read more of Ted Watt’s experience seeing Nighthawks in the North End on the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
