BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.

I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.

This week’s brain teaser: 

Seen in the sea and seen in the sky
Forever differs from eye to eye
Most see it in nature, some see it in pi
Its appearance is rarely, if ever, asked why.

Gold Dust Orphans present: GREECE May 4 – June 4, 2017

Two weeks from today is opening night for the Gold Dust Orphans latest show, Greece: A High School Musical.

Ryan Landry’s crazy creativity has combined one of America’s most recognizable and favorite musicals Grease with togas and titans. The mash up of a story line features the daughter of Zeus obsessing over the lives of mortals. When Zeus finds out he decides to send her to a public school to teach her a lesson, but no sooner does she arrive on Earth when she meets a gorgeous Trojan and all Hades breaks loose. Get your tickets while they last.

GREECE: A High School Musical
Thursday, May 4 – Sunday, June 4
At The Ramrod Performing Arts Centre

I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share?

345 Harrison Avenue reaches full height

South End real estate, SoWa real estate, Boston Real EstateThe pace of construction in the SoWa district of Boston’s South End neighborhood seems to have quickened recently along Harrison Avenue. Earlier this month the 14-story multi-building complex currently known by its address, 345 Harrison Avenue, topped off.

When construction is completed the complex will include 585 new residential apartments along with 40,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, 275 parking spaces and 325 bicycle spaces. Amenities in the building will also include a resort-style pool, fully equipped fitness center and sky lounge with beautiful views of the city. Below is a rendering of what 345 Harrison will look like when completed. The view is looking north with the Ink Block to the right and behind that I-93 with a barely recognizable and poorly created skyline of Boston’s Financial District off in the distance.

This week on Instagram: Izzyberdan

InstagramThis week on Instagram I’m featuring Izzy Berdan; someone you may not know if you are not part of Boston’s LGBTQ community.

Izzy is a creative tour de force who adds so much to our community. Opinionated and eccentric this local artist is who I think of when I hear people talk about the creative economy. His IG account includes a lot of his provocative and beautiful photography.

Hey @jeciwould nice … eyes. #instamodel #malemodel #devilinabluedress #instagay #hunk #sploosh
