Labor Day Weekend

Bask: Bask in the blue moonlight.  You know the old saying, “Once in a blue moon,” well a blue moon happens on Friday, August 31st and does not refer to the moon’s color but it’s rarity.?? What is a blue moon? ?It’s actually the second full moon of the month or the fourth full moon of a season and it occurs once every two years or so.   Not insanely rare but reason to celebrate (or worth mentioning anyway).  We say take a stroll around Castle Island hand in hand with someone special and enjoy the view.  Another suggestion?  Buy a scratch ticket – you never know!

UPDATE: Tasty Burger (69 L Street) now opens its take-out window on Wednesday, September 5th.  Part of the Franklin Cafe family, Tasty Burger boasts some amazingly delicious burgers including such creations at the Spicy Jalapeno, Kahuna Burger with pineapple and a special Burger of the Day.   A burger will run you about $5 – not bad!??
