Women’s March

womens-march-on-washington-dcIt is unprecedented to think that just 24-hours after Trump was sworn into office in Washington D.C. The Women’s March in D.C. appears to have drawn crowds that rival in size those of the inauguration to the incoming President.

“We can whimper, we can wine or we can fight back. Me I’m here to fight back!”  U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren told more than 175,000 protesters at the Women’s March Boston

It has been many years since I’ve seen so many people exercising their right to protest (an estimated 80,000 175,000 in Boston with an estimated 3.3 to 4.2 million people across the U.S.), and I can not think of another instance where the incoming President has received such an overwhelming rebuke – not just in DC and Boston but worldwide.

I know much will happen over the next four years that I will disagree with, but I am energized and encouraged by what I am seeing not only in the streets of Boston but throughout our country. As a socially progressive liberal, it is rare to see so many speaking out and my only hope is the intensity remains. Much thanks to my friends for sharing some of their photos from today’s march in Boston since I could not be there personally.

MiniLuxe to move into Emilio’s Pizza space in South End

miniluxeDespite persistent rumors that Starbucks was looking at the now vacant Emilio’s Pizza, earlier this week it was confirmed that Boston-based MiniLuxe will be opening their next location in Boston at 536 Tremont Street.  According to an article in The Boston Guardian, the local chain is leasing the building space, but when they would open and the duration of the lease were not shared

I am happy this space will not be replaced by another real estate office or bank, because I think it is important that street level commercial space along streets like Tremont should be reserved for businesses that are open at nights as well to avoid having large portions of our city blocks go dark after 5PM.
