Brace Yourself! September 1st is coming and you know what that means – it’s Move In Day in Southie aka Southie Christmas! The coming weeks are sure to promise lots of double parked cars and moving vans, “no parking” moving permits (which residents will ignore) and trash galore! You know what they say, “one man’s trash is another’s treasure.” You might be in the market for a pre-owned couch, a broken vacuum cleaner or maybe a “Live, Love, Laugh” sign. This day brings out the inner hoarder in all of and makes us pass a pile of garbage and think, “Hmmm…maybe I could use that?” If you have issues with trash or parking violations, you are highly encourage to use the City’s 311 app. If you have questions on how to reserve a moving permit, visit

Let’s go bowling! Celebrate the last few days of summer at Kings Dining and Entertainment! Kids are invited to come in and bowl on Labor Day week (August 27-Sept 3), leading up to the start of school, and bowl for the price of the grade that they are going in. This is available from open until 8p and if a child is going into second grade, they pay $2 a game. It is a great way to enjoy the last week of summer before kids start school again!
