Weekend Brief: Celebrating What Unites Us, Greenway Carousel Reopens, Labyrinth Walking

What’s Open and Closed in Massachusetts?

Still wondering what may be open and what may still be closed as phase 2 of the state’s reopening plan continues? Check out a full business reopening status update on NBC Boston.


Today is Friday, June 26 and here’s a joke from local comedy writer Ben Alper: “The Boston Licensing Board held an “emergency hearing” to deal with some reopened North End restaurants that are flouting the new social distancing rules. In fact, diners are being injured by flying hand gestures.”

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