Boston Adventure: Christina's Ice Cream and Inman Square

By Betsy Storm
May 14, 2013 - 1:37pm

  Well, it’s finals time, and we all know what that brings: an intense aversion to studying, and an equally intense desire for ice cream. Luckily, a quick trip to Inman Square can satisfy both! Just a fifteen-minute walk down Cambridge Street from Annenberg, Inman Square’s hip atmosphere is a refreshing break from studying. Check out one of its many yoga studios and have a bite at any cute café along the way. If you really, REALLY can’t study for finals (or are finished with finals!), enjoy the smooth tunes and cool ambiance of Ryles Jazz Club on Thursday or Friday at 9 p.m. Check out their website for tickets!

Hazel Lever '13

  Hazel Lever is one of the most incredible choreographers we have ever seen.  Between Wonderful Town, The Ballet Company, Eleganza, Cabaret, and so much more, Hazel is a superstar and we want to tell you why! First, the basics! Tell us a little about yourself -- where are you from, what do you study, and what do you enjoy doing in your free time?     I'm originally from Spartanburg, SC!  I study History & Science, with a secondary in Global Health/Health Policy and a Spanish Language Citation, and I'm pre-med.  In my free time, I spend way too much time on feminist blogs, buzzfeed, and, ideally, laying on the couch with my dog.

Tangible Things: Why (Physical) Books Matter

By Lauren Covalucci
May 3, 2013 - 12:00pm

The three best gifts I’ve been given are, in order, a book, a typewriter, and a book. The typewriter should probably tip you off that I’m biased toward the archaic. We’re not talking about one of those nifty portable electrics here; Gerry (that’s his name) is old enough to be my grandfather and just as loud as any deaf old man trying to hear his own voice. There’s something grounding about typing a letter mechanically—it could be the necessity of focusing on each letter, or the constant background of rhythmic clacking, like a Gregorian chant performed by steel monks. Using a typewriter is a substantially different writing experience than using my laptop. But I digress. This isn’t about my typewriter. It’s about those other two favorite gifts, my books....

Boston Adventure: Harvard Square’s 30th Annual May Fair

By Betsy Storm
April 30, 2013 - 2:10am

  Springtime is here, and with it comes Harvard Square’s own 30th Annual May Fair! From noon to 6:00 P.M. on Sunday, May 5th , head into the Square for live music and dancing with a Mexican flair thanks to this year’s overlap with Cinco de Mayo celebrations. A different band will hit the stage every hour, with our own Mariachi Veritas de Harvard set for the 3:00-4:00 P.M. slot. In between sets, don’t miss the cheesy but charming street performers. Browse through more than 200 merchant and artisan stands while you enjoy the music, and remember to bring a few bucks in case you find a handmade bracelet or vintage picture frame you just have to have.
