Saturday night video

Remember this Carly Rae Jepson 2012 hit? The catchy pop tune spawned a host of video covers.  My favorite was this version by the Harvard University baseball team.

Single Ladies

I’ll be the first to admit I love Beyonce, but her lyrics are ridiculous. Little BoBo (actress Nina Millin) on YouTube has created a series of posts called The Beyoncelogues where she offers dramatic readings of Beyonce’s redick lyrics. The result is hilarious.  Enjoy.

Furry Friday

Hairy chest, hunk

This week’s Furry Friday is for all you guys who keep telling me the men are not hairy enough. Aside from his questionable wardrobe I think he’s a keeper. What do you think?

Provincetown Carnival parade next Thursday

Comic Capers Carnival ProvincetownNext Thursday is Provincetown’s Carnival Parade.  Although Carnival Week technically starts this Saturday most will go later in the week, arriving just in time for the annual parade.

Carnival is my favorite Ptown theme week and I love this year’s theme, Comic Book Capers.

Gordon Hamersley at Taste of the South End

Holy crap! Gordon Hamersley, a James Beard Award winner and one of Boston’s most celebrated chefs, has announced that he will close his restaurant after opening twenty-seven years ago in Boston’s South End.

Gordon told The Boston Globe’s Devra First that he wants to spend more time to focus on his follow-up book to Bistro Cooking at Home and to continue to mentor young chefs.  An undisclosed new owner has already claimed the space and license, and will renovate and re-open a new concept at the beginning of 2015.  Full story here.

Travel tips that will save you money

gay travel puerto ricoPerhaps I should have written this a few months ago since so many take summer vacations, but I save most of my travel for later in the year, preferring to enjoy summers in New England. Regardless, these money saving travel tips remain true year round.

1. Be flexible with your travel dates.  Why does everyone plan vacations that start and end on weekends? You can take the same number of vacation days and leave mid-Week. The upside is airfares are often cheaper and you have two short work weeks.

2. There have never been more lodging options.  Americans tend to stick to US chains when traveling abroad, but try local chains or independent hotels.  You can often read reviews of these properties on sites like TripAdvisor.com and the popularity of sites like AirBnB and GayHomestays give you even more choices if you’d like to look beyond traditional lodging establishments.

3. Check out the destination’s tourism sites.  Cities in particular often have websites set up to promote tourism that include discounts to places of interest to tourists and public transportation. It is worth checking out before you go.

4. Eat where the locals eat. Every city has great “cheap eats” that locals know and love. We always go out and splurge on a few meals, but some of our best dining experiences have been at places frequented by locals. Do a little homework up front or when you arrive ask locals for tips and suggestions.

5. Check local blogs for tips.  You must’ve seen this one coming from a mile away.  There are bloggers everywhere now and chatting with a local on where to stay, what to see (and more importantly what to avoid) can save you more than just money.

South End rumor: Tenant signed in former Francesca’s space

gossipRumor has it that Fred Kiley (the owner of the building that once housed Francesca’s) has signed a lease with a new tenant for the prime space on Tremont Street.

According to the neighborhood gossip, the space will remain a coffee shop and include outdoor seating.  The new tenant is not Peets coffee but I’ve not been able to get any further details regarding who signed the lease or an expected opening.  If you happen to have any further information, contact me at bosguymail@gmail.com.
