What do you miss most about living in Southie?: Of course my family and friends, but I have to say Southie has the best take-out places. I love Mirisola’s!
Any other favorite spots?: I love the L Street Tavern and Amrhein’s. And I take Lola to BYOD for her baths.
What is your favorite Old School Southie place that no longer exists: I have to say my childhood to young adult home at 12 Ticknor Street. I mean it still exists but nobody from my family lives there anymore. Ticknor Street was the best street to grow up on. My cousins lived downstairs and The Woods’ Family and the LoGrasso’s lived on Ticknor – actually they still live there! It’s still a great street!
