Mark your calendars and make sure you come down to Boylston Street to watch the annual Santa Speedo Run now in it’s 14th year. Seven hundred runners will participate in the fun fundraiser that supports the Play Ball Foundation.
Santa Speedo Run – Sat 14-Dec.
If you cannot join, never fear as I’m planning to be there to snap photos and write all about it. Until then enjoy this video I made after the 2012 Santa Speedo Run.
Much thanks to Sean over at Just a Jeep Guy for posting this handsome image earlier this year. I’ve nicknamed this week’s post ‘tattoos’. Anyway, enjoy your Sunday morning.

Have you registered to attend this year’s Toys for Joys? What you waiting for? Although the venue has changed and there is a small registration fee, it is still the same party but just better because they organizers have changed the venue to accommodate a larger crowd so more friends can join you.
Time: Saturday, December 14, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 12:00 AM
Location: 1 Black Falcon Ave. Boston
Just in case there really is a Santa Claus.
After spending nearly two weeks in Brazil, Sergio and I are heading back to Boston (please don’t be cold, please don’t be cold…) It has been fun and I look forward to writing more about the vacation.
Travel and Leisure magazine recently released the results of its annual survey of “America’s Favorite Cities”. How did your home city rank?
Boston received high marks from visitors for its classical music, culture, professional sports and history. It is also perceived as a city filled with intelligent and tech savvy residents. Want to see how Boston ranked in the nearly 30 categories created by Travel and Leisure? Link here.
Each Friday morning I post some sort of brain teaser to get you to exercise your brain, but I’m currently away on vacation so I’ve posted an optical test in lieu of my usual riddle.
Look at the chart above and say the color (not the word). See how quickly you and others can do this accurately. The right side of your brain wants to say the color but the left side of your brain is focused on reading the word.
Like riddles? Check out past week’s brain teasers.
I’m still in sunny, warm Brazil, but I wanted to get this post up for those of you contemplating what to do tomorrow night.
Open to doing something different? The first Friday of each month Boston Guerrilla Queer Bar (GQB) overtake traditionally straight bars. Since the Boston bar scene can be restricting, GQB gives you the opportunity to break out of your routine. Curious which bar will be overtaken on Friday? Check the group’s Facebook page or its website, www.BostonGuerrilla.com.
Is the bar scene not really your thing? Looking for something to do that won’t break the bank? Come over to my neighborhood in Boston’s South End to participate in First Friday. This event which runs from 5:00pm – 9:00pm at 450 Harrison Avenue allows you to walk through the many working art studios, view art and artisan crafts and chat with the artists. Its a great way to mingle and meet people and after you are done, there are literally a half dozen restaurant options within 2-3 blocks to either grab dinner or enjoy some apps and cocktails.
Boston’s creative genius, Ryan Landry, is back this holiday season with a new show that is certain to have you laughing out loud. Tonight Ryan Landry and his Gold Dust Orphans open with their new show, It’s a Horrible Life.
The show will run through December 29th, playing every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at 8pm and every Sunday afternoon at 5pm. Tickets cost $35 for general admission and $45 V.I.P. seating and can be purchased online HERE.
Stumbled upon this image somewhere and thought it was hilarious. How would you caption this picture?
Feast on this while I’m gone. I’ll be back by the end of this week and have more to say, but I figured this might help fill the void while I’m off sunning myself in Brazil.

2013 Holiday Season: December 4-24th
Tonight the Boston Pops open for their first holiday performance of the 2013 season. The concert series will run through December 24th. Holiday Pops is one of the most popular seasonal traditions and although I do not have plans to attend performances this seasons, it is a magnificent show. Tickets have been on sale so availability is limited but you may purchase tickets here.
Below is a clip from the 2010 Boston Pops Holiday season. It gives you an idea of what to expect if you’ve never attended this Boston tradition before.
Actually more like moves like BosGuy, which is one reason why I need to be intoxicated to go dancing. My sister sent me this funny video last month, and I thought it was hilarious.
