Most of you likely have plans for New Year’s Eve. Sergio and I typically order out and watch movies; switching to watch the ball drop in Times Square at Midnight then crawling into bed with hopes that we will strike it rich in the New Year, quit our jobs and travel for the rest of our lives.
You too may have plans for New Year’s Eve but in case those plans fall through or you are procrastinating and wondering what you can do, I’ve pulled together a list of options for you to consider. Many of these parties require tickets or have a cover at the door so click the link to learn more if interested.

Although the heatwave that had most of New England sweltering through much of the week is no longer here and the forecast is for rain, I want to wish everyone a fun-filled long holiday weekend. Summer is Boston’s briefest season and I will miss it. I had a wonderful summer with friends and family this year.
Happy Easter from Seth and me.

It is Christmas Eve day and many of you are probably running around taking care of last minute errands or traveling to be with your friends and family.
Pietro Boselli and I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas or Buon Natale as Pietro would say no matter where you are or how you may be celebrating the holiday. Thank you for visiting BosGuy.com.
Christmas is less than a week away and according to AAA a record 107.3 million Americans will travel during the year-end holidays. A healthy local economy here in Massachusetts, increasing consumer confidence and relatively low gas prices are cited by AAA as reasons cited for the record number of Americans expected to travel this holiday season.
If you need to drive, AAA has issued a notice that travel will be most congested in the Boston area starting Thursday, December 21st. They also said that the hours between 2:30PM and 4:30PM will be wicked bad. Well those weren’t their official words but you get the picture. AAA predicts the roads will be twice as packed then as commuters are joined by those leaving early for the holiday.
Traveling by car during the holidays? Check live traffic maps online at Boston.com/Traffic or Mass511.com. Also you can download traffic apps AAA, Waze, or GoTime.
