In the market for a car?  Mass Bay Credit Union (147 West Fourth Street) is hosting their annual Summer Used Car Sale featuring “gently used” cars from Enterprise.  This sale will take place on Wednesday, July 23rd from 10am-2pm  with a sneak peek on Tuesday, July 22nd from 2pm-4pm.  You can also view the cars on sale online here at www.cuautodeals.com.  If you purchase a car, you’ll receive a $300 gas card!  Del’s Lemonade Truck will be on hand to make sure you stay cool and refreshed.  Stop by and say hello! 

Be informed.  Get involved. So the seven day parking program is going to become a reality – well, for a 90-day test period in the City Point neighborhood.  Council President Bill Linehan, At-Large Councilor Michael Flaherty and Rep. Nick Collins will be hosting a meeting on Wednesday, July 23rd at 6:30 pm at the Tynan School (650 East Fourth) cafeteria to discuss pilot program.  Boston Transportation Department officials will be on hand to answer questions. So maybe relief is on the way, Southie.  For now, we say – ride your bike or take the T – especially if you have a prime parking spot in front of your house.  You don’t want to give that up!  Be informed. Get involved.  Attend the meeting.

Lobster, shrimp and oysters, oh my!  Celebrate 100 years of the Boston Fish Pier at the Boston Seafood Festival on Sunday, July 27th from 11am-6pm.  This family friendly event begins at 11am and goes for 7 delicious hours until 6pm.  There will be food vendors, kids activities, chef demonstrations, an oyster shucking contest and more.  For more information you can follow them on twitter @bostonseafest and on Facebook at /bostonseafoodfestival. 

Lights, camera, action! Not sure if you heard or not, but “Ted 2” is in the works and they are looking for extras from the Boston area.  Boston Casting is currently seeking background talent for the feature film “Ted 2” starring Seth MacFarlane, Mark Wahlberg, and Amanda Seyfried. Both union and nonunion talent is welcome to attend the July 26th open call for “Ted 2,” the followup to the 2012 comedy.  You must be 18 plus and make sure to bring a head shot or a recent photo.   They are also looking for people who have fantastic superhero costumes too.  The casting will take place from 10am-3pm at Boston Casting at 129 Braintree Street, Suite 107, Boston MA 02134.  Let us know if you go!
