May 16, 2016 No Comments by

by Jared Aupperle The “Beer Thursdays” road trip to Boston. Six guys, two brewery stops on the way up, one ridiculous all day beer festival, and the best Belgian waffles ever. Beer Advocate’s Belgian Beer Fest included 100 plus beers and about 1,000 people at each of the two sessions. We of course attended both […]

Don’t you wish you worked with me

by Jessica B. At the end of last year my boss negotiated some money for us to do a group bonding experience. We are four very different people, so we had some trouble coming up with something we would all want to do. One is a club hopping British woman. One is a Northshore “piker,” […]

Take Me Out to the Old Ball Game

Mar 15, 2016 No Comments

By Jessica B. Now when I asked to be taken out to the ballgame, perhaps I should have been more specific. I should have requested a game where it didn’t start to rain during the first inning. I was psyched to see Clay “Don’t I look like I should be going to a RatDog concert” […]

I can read a defense like Peyton Manning (for 1 play at least)

Jan 10, 2016 No Comments

As far as I’m concerned, this was the beginning of the end of the Patriots dynasty. Sure, 2007 saw a freak resurgence due to the Bill Belichick Fantasy Team, but they were not the Super Bowl Patriots we had become accustomed to in New England. But, 2006 was still the Patriots time. Since our last […]

Oh My God/that’s The Way I Like It

Oct 11, 2013 No Comments

I saw Liz Phair on December 15, 2010 at the Paradise in Boston, one of my favorite venues. This was my forth time seeing her, and by far her best show to date. She was touring in support of her Funstyle album, the album that she lost her label and management over. It’s probably her […]

I was a Frank Zappa fan in college and never got the chance to hear him play live. When I heard that Dweezil Zappa, his son, was on tour with a band re-creating Frank’s music, I was pretty excited to go. I was one of the very few women at the December 19, 2010 show, […]
