Gross conditions in some JP restaurants

Curious how your favorite place stacks up? You can search the Boston city health inspection database by name and/or neighborhood (I just selected JP to see all the restaurants.)

Well, after seeing the long list of health code violations at one of my favorite restaurants, it's no longer on my list! Apparently the city had reports of rodents eating food off the floors, they've been routinely cited for not storing food…

BPL Update

Hello, I am Brandon Abbs, founder of People of Boston Branches and we are working to bring all of the concerned groups together to fight cuts to library funding. We want to save all 104 jobs and all 26 branches because each job is a neighbor and each branch supports a neighborhood. They are all important and the city needs to bring $3.6M out of reserves to support the library while we examine how it is run and make it fitter for the future without cutting our neighbors off from the… Continue

Cooking Group

Anyone interested in the Stonybrook area (or beyond) in starting a cooking group? Lots of options - host can pick theme and members make courses, or each host does a full meal and host location rotates. My husband and I love to cook and have dinner parties but want to get to know our neighbors in the process while learning some new recipes!

Let me know if you are hungry for this kind of group :)

Burglary from car on Green Street

HI everyone! I am planning on filing a police report today but wanted to give people a heads up. On or about Saturday night our car was broken into (jeep wrangler). We first thought someone had just looked around since the soft top window was sort of removed - not ripped, and things looked like they were thrown about the car. The radio was there and we could not think of anything that was missing but we realized that we had left our Craftsman toolbox inside and it was missing. I don't really… Continue

I'm looking for neighbors who would enjoy sharing a walk in this lovely weather and get to know each other better. Dogs are welcome! I love animals. I have interests in writing, gardening, herbs, holistic health, art, free form dancing, and creativity.

Know of any craft fairs that need vendors?

Summer is definitely the time for buying and selling crafts but I can never seem to find a centralized listing of all the craft shows/flea markets in the area - does anyone know of a listing like this or know of any that need vendors?
