It’s confirmed: Cathedral Station will be closing but when either nobody knows or is willing to say

Tonight’s East Berkeley Neighborhood Association (EBNA) monthly meeting gathered a large crowd. Residents had joined to learn more about the proposed cannabis shop at 1220 Washington Street. Most who were able to join (only 100 were able to join due to Zoom license restrictions) cited concerns other neighborhoods have voiced when cannabis shops have been proposed (traffic, proximity to children, this business won’t add to or enhance the n’hood, etc…) However most were silent on what losing another LGBTQ space means for our community so I asked the lawyer representing the cannabis owners when Cathedral Station will be closing and how we got to this point?

Arthur Leon, who is Cathedral Station’s landlord, was also on the Zoom Meeting and he shared that two years ago the owners declined to sign a new lease. They cited a desire to retire and relocate to Florida. Since that time the establishment has been operating without a lease, and it is that decision that opened the door for new businesses to come and rent the space. Leon did not answer when the owners plan to retire (it’s not clear that he knows) but one thing is for certain – despite comments from the staff, Cathedral Station will be closing.

The images below were shared by Adenike “Nike” John and Frederick “Fred” McCarthy at the EBNA Zoom Meeting – the two individuals behind “The Boston Garden Dispensary” (the dispensary name if approved). The first image confirms the location and the second image is a mock-up of the floorplan for the dispensary.

If you’d like to learn more about the owners and their proposal or hear what concerns were raised by attendees, the EBNA did record the meeting and you can contact them to get the recording on their website at,

Outdoor ice skating rinks in Boston

Great for a date or fun night out with friends

While I’m no fan of the cold, there are certain activities that I do associate with the winter, my search for the perfect cup of hot chocolate, ordering a hot toddy at my favorite bar, visiting, and outdoor ice skating – which is usually bookended by grabbing a hot chocolate up front and a hot toddy following the misadventure (I’ve never really got the hang of ice skating).

Evenings out visiting one of Boston’s many outdoor skating rinks makes for an ideal date (it really can be quite romantic if you can avoid the screaming children) and is also a lot of fun to do with your friends. Below are a few skating rinks for you to check out this winter.

Boston Common Frog Pond located in the heart of the Boston Common and considered one of the best outdoor, public skating rinks in America, this is an obvious choice. The rink is open til 9PM on weekdays (except for Monday) and 10PM on weekends.

Following a few rounds on the Frog Pond you can walk to any number of places for a beverage. Two suggestions include visiting 75 Chestnut for their spiked hot apple cider or visit Emmets Irish Pub for an Irish hot coffee. Both drinks will warm you up.

Rink @401 Park in the Fenway / Kenmore neighborhood this outdoor rink is smaller but still a lot of fun and considering it is next to the Trillium Brewery Pub and TimeOut Boston market, there are more options for warming bevvies for you to try. This rink is open until 9PM on weekdays, 10PM on Saturdays, and 8PM on Sunday.

In addition to the two great choices I shared above to grab a drink or bite to warm up, I also wanted to give a shout out to Tatte Bakery and Cafe for something on the sweeter side and a delicious hot chocolate.

DCR Kelly Rink is in Jamaica Plain near the Stony Brook T station and is open until 7:30PM each evening. It probably closes a little too early to be a viable date place on the weekdays but can make for a great place to check out on the weekend.

This public skating rink is a 5-10 minute walk to the Sam Adams Brewery. I recommend trying their Winter Lager.

Canal District Rink in Kendall Square (Cambridge) is comparable in size to the Rink @401 Park. The hours vary by day so check ahead. If you work in or near Kendall Square, this is the place to head after work for some laughs with colleagues followed by something to drink.

Similar to the Fenway, there is a Tatte Bakery and Cafe nearby for a hot chocolate and a treat, but if you’re looking for an adult-beverage, walk to Sumaio Hunan Kitchen and order a sake or one of their Baijiu cocktails.

Should you decide to head out for some fun at the rink, don’t forget to bundle up. It is going to be a chilly few months until spring, but have fun.

This annual event celebrates the holiday season. It is a fun and festive weekend that is equal parts camp and tradition.

In addition, be sure to check out and partake in the Ugly Sweater & Wig Bar Crawl, Drag shows galore, and Annual Jingle Bell Run. All weekend there will be cabaret shows and parties each night.

Happy Thanksgiving

If you happen to be celebrating with family or attending a Friendsgiving, I want to wish you a wonderful time, and for those of you who are traveling I hope you have a safe and stress-free trip.

Canada Day

On this day in 1867 the British North American Act (a.k.a. Constitution Act) was enacted and is now referred to as “Canada Day”. The holiday is celebrated similar to the July 4th holiday in the United States, with parades, family barbecues and fireworks. In 2018, Sergio and I traveled to Montreal, which also (when there isn’t a pandemic) hosts Jazzfest at the same time. I wrote about the trip, here.
