Have a hankering for some homestyle barbecue?  Head to Larry J’s BBQ Cafe on the Southie Waterfront.  Located in the South Boston Maritime Park kiosk at the corner of Seaport Boulevard and D Street, Larry’s menu features Texas style barbecue with tasty treats like fire balls, fried pickles, pulled pork and ribs.  Stop by and give it a try.  They are open Monday – Wednesday 11:30AM – 8:00PM, Thursday 11:30AM – 6:00PM, Friday – Saturday 11:30AM – 8:00PM.  Sunday – closed.  Don’t forget the napkins!

The Quencher Tavern.  Located on the ground floor of a triple-decker, The Q’s interior is true hole in the wall charm and is usually packed with a local cast of characters.  The drink prices are cheap and the jukebox will have you dancing in no time.

Drivers, start your engines.  It’s the Annual Boston Police Athletic League Grand Prix on Saturday, September 15th.  Watch as the Southie waterfront transforms into a Formula 1 racetrack on Seaport Boulevard between Northern Ave. and Wharf Road.  It’s a four hour team endurance race to benefit the youth programs of the Boston Police Athletic League.  For more information or to register a team, got to wwww.bostonpal.org.

If you forget my death, then I died in vain.  Come remember a group of fallen heros at the Thirty-first anniversary of the South Boston Vietnam Memorial.  On Sunday, September 16th the day begins with a memorial Mass at ST. Brigid’s Church at 10:30am followed by the rededication ceremony at Medal of Honor Park at 11:30am.  Guest Speaker will be General Joseph F.
