Laugh Boston (425 Summer Street) is hosting a McCarthys viewing party for its premiere Thursday night at 9:30pm.  The McCarthys – a sitcom about a lovable Irish-Catholic family that lives in South Boston is on Thursdays at 9:30pm on CBS.  Here’s the premise:  The McCarthy are lifelong Southie residents that all live within blocks of one another (just like my family) but spend most of their time in their parents’ home in a triple-decker (no mention of whether this triple-decker is now condos or not).  This event is free! Sweet! For more information visit: http://laughboston.com

November’s issue of Boston Magazine features a beautifully written story by Jennifer Roberts about growing up in Southie in the 1980’s.  Her feelings of isolation, confusion, and shame are captured articulately in her own words, in an essay about living in a tight-knit Irish neighborhood.  “I was a typical Southie kid, one of six, born to a single mother, raised in a triple-decker, surrounded by Whitey Bulger’s violence and fierce Irish pride. There was only one thing that kept me on the outside: Despite my mother’s claims to the contrary, we were black.” It is Jen’s story and it is a courageous one.  We highly recommend you read, “One of Us.”  You can find it here: http://www.bostonmagazine.com/news/article/2014/10/28/jennifer-roberts-i…
