Just some picture perfect recommendations for fun





Celebrate Youth:
The South Boston Youth Ambassadors’ Youth Festival takes place this Saturday, November 19th from 11am-3pm at the Ironworkers Local 7 Hall (195 Old Colony Ave.).  The theme of this event is “Just Do It”.  Stop by and checkout a gallery of their artwork and get to know the programs and agencies that the youth of South Boston are involved in.  Also on hand will be many non-profit agencies displaying their services and accomplishments.  This event is free.  So come support the youth of our community!

Participate in the Baker 5K Road Race on Sunday, November 20th at 9am.  This road race kicks off at 9am at the Clock Tavern (342 West Broadway).  This race will be run in memory of Noel “Baker” Robinson – a South Boston resident originally from Athy, County Kildare, Ireland – who loved Southie and loved to run, running 24 consecutive Boston Marathons. He is remembered by his good friends at the Clock Tavern who organized this race in his memory.  Register on-line at racemenu.com. 

Say cheese!  American Provisions (613 East Broadway) will be hosting Robinson Farm on Saturday, November 19 at 11am.  Cheese makers Pam and Ray will be sampling their famous Swiss and Tomme!  Stop by and try some. 

Get a jump on Christmas.  Ku de Ta (663 East Broadway) is fully stocked with amazing gift ideas from deux luxe leather handbags and accessories.  We’re loving the cobalt and gold polka dot credit card holder – it would make the perfect gift for the fashionable gal on your list. 

On Saturday, November 19, brainiacs will test their Rubik’s skills in the first-ever New England “You CAN Do The Rubik’s Cube” tournament at the Museum of Science. The tournament pits teams of K-12 students from schools across New England against one another in a competition to collectively solve 25 Rubik’s Cubes in the fastest amount of time.  Wonder if they know the trick about peeling off the stickers?
