Thursday’s Brief: First Day of School, Public Safety Meeting, Gentle Yoga, NEMPAC Open House, Swing Dancing

A couple of chuckles to start the day from our resident comedy writer, Ben Alper:

“Ayanna Pressley, the first African-American woman elected to the Boston City Council, defeated Michael Capuano, a 10-term incumbent in the state’s primary. It’s the biggest upset since Paul Revere and his wife won the 1773 Inter-Colony Contract Bridge Tournament”

“North End/Waterfront Residents’ Association voted in favor of a proposal by Going Bananas Market to sell beer and wine. It also voted in favor of a proposal to build a rehab clinic next door called Going to Quit Drinking.”
