This week on Instagram: alfball

handsome venezualan, hunk, hairy chestI can’t really tell you much about this week’s featured Instagram account other than this handsome Venezuelan now calls Sydney, Australia home. As one might suspect, most of his photos are of alfball smiling shirtless (and usually in a swim suit) on or near one of Sydney’s many beaches.

No doubt this guy would make for a fantastic Furry Friday at some point.

Revolution Hotel opens in South End

boutique hotel boston, independent hotel boston, south end hotelA 164-room boutique hotel called The Revolution, opened last week, in the former YWCA building at 40 Berkeley Street.

The hotel’s name and decor draws upon Boston’s pioneering past, in particular through artwork and music, which is quite obvious the minute you check out their website (link shared below), follow their Instagram Account, revolution_hotel or Twitter, revolution_bos.

The hotel offers shared rooms for the more budget conscious travelers. Some rooms right now start at just $100 / night, but these “quad rooms” (from the photo I saw here) are more reminiscent of an upscale hostel.  More traditional hotel rooms are also available for travelers like the King Room shown below.

Mass DOT Public Hearing for the North South Rail Link project this week

On Monday, December 10th, Massachusetts Dept of Transportation will hold a public hearing on the North South Rail Link, sharing public comments received, the draft report and cost estimation. Long-time residents of Boston may recall, linking both North and South Station was initially part of the “Big Dig” but was later scrapped after poor management of the project led to cost overruns and ridiculous delays.

Mass DOT Public Hearing: North South Rail Link project
Monday, December 10th 5PM – 8PM
10 Park Plaza, 2nd Floor, Conference Rooms 2 & 3

For those unfamiliar with the project, the North South Rail Link (NSRL) project would connect the  MBTA commuter rail networks (South Station and North Station) into one regional system through the construction and operation of a rail tunnel through Downtown Boston. This tunnel would enable through-running of MBTA Commuter Rail and Amtrak trains, increasing system coverage, capacity, and ridership.

North South Rail Link Feasibility Reassessment Draft Final Report

I would like to see any project that links these two commuter hubs with a direct link via the MBTA subway system as well, providing a better and more direct connection for people who use the subway.

If interested, you can download and read the entire draft final report here.
