Normal trash day rules apply this holiday week.  Not like last week when trash day was pushed back a week due to the Christmas holiday.  Hmmm….maybe they read Peter’s blog? https://caughtinsouthie.com/feature/no-trash-pick

Give blood:
In honor of the 5th Anniversary of the death of City Councilor (and local legend) Jimmy Kelly, a blood drive will be hosted in his honor by his three children.  On Saturday, January 7th from 9:30-2:30 at South Boston Catholic Academy (O and East Broadway).  If you would like to donate blood, kindly call the American Red Cross at 1-800-733-2767– to reserve a time slot.  If you donate, you will receive a free pound of Dunkin Donuts coffee.  Wowee!

Happy Hour:
Wolfies (81 L Street) is starting off the new year right!  On Thursdays from 5pm-7pm enjoy half price appetizers and $5 signature cocktails.  It’s the perfect excuse to stop off on the way home from work! We are smiling already!

Learn how to whip up a Sidecar with style!  Beginning Tuesday, January 17, Local 149 is offering Mixology 101 – a 1 hour course on how to make and serve craft cocktails at home.
