WW II Memorial Vandalized – John Mullen Passes

2019-03-19T12:27:05-04:00March 19th, 2019|Categories: Featured, News|Comments Off on WW II Memorial Vandalized – John Mullen Passes

 by Rick Winterson      A positive report on Sunday’s Parade and the spectators’ overall behavior was unfortunately balanced by a downside report on Monday morning.   The striking World War II Memorial on the beach at the beginning of the Pleasure Bay Causeway to Castle Island was vandalized.  A large quantity of an oily liquid was poured over most of the front, street-facing surfaces of this Memorial.  Whether this was connected to the crowds at Sunday’s Parade isn’t known at the moment, but State Police are investigating. In one of those jarring coincidences, South Boston’s revered John Mullen, veteran and community activist, passed away on Monday also.  Elected and appointed officials gathered in sadness at the Memorial’s site – sadness caused by the desecration there [...]

Fox & The Knife, A Cut Above

2019-03-14T11:18:21-04:00March 7th, 2019|Categories: Business, Featured|Comments Off on Fox & The Knife, A Cut Above

By Tara Kerrigan Hayes   When you enter Fox & The Knife you’re immediately hit with sheer, exuberant, energy. Described as an Italian inspired Enoteca, this neighborhood joint is bursting with personality, with an Amy Winehouse meets Julia Child sort of vibe.  From the buzz of the crowd, to the intoxicating aromas, the character of the décor, and the thoughtfully chosen tunes, there’s a pure celebration of the senses, before even sitting down to taste. With no major structural renovations necessary, the redesign yields a sleek and cozy, yet edgy space, with one particular improvement that the Maiden lay-out had been screaming for; a six-seat chef’s table providing a full view of the open kitchen design, for diners to watch Chef Karen Akunowicz wield her [...]

By Brianne Fitzgerald, Family and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Recoverymattersma.org The idea of intravenous vitamin therapy became popular in 2012 with raves coming from Hollywood celebrities like Rihanna and Adele.  How is that the idea of being stuck with a needle in an unregulated walk-in clinic and run by for profit companies has been turned into a wellness must for those with disposable incomes?  These clinics boast everything from a cure for jetlag and hangovers, to healthier skin, improving your immune system and sex life.  Why are so many Americans seeking chemical answers for distress?  Is your life here in the richest country in the world becoming more stressful nd traumatic?  How is it that people from other countries are desperate to come to the US [...]

By: Tara Kerrigan Hayes   While many are aware of the challenges facing todays churches, (from limited parishioners to closings as a result of financial hardships, structural dangers, and more), not enough is said about the extraordinary efforts and good works of those determined to rise to those challenges by continuing to offer the community a safe place to gather, worship, nurture and even nourish.  Formed by the Archdiocese of Boston in 2015, the South Boston Seaport Catholic Collaborative (SBSCC) serves four catholic communities: St. Peter, St. Monica-St. Augustine, St. Vincent, and Our Lady of Good Voyage.  For covering such a vast area (Old Colony, West Broadway, Fort Point and the Seaport), the SBSCC is managing to do a remarkable job catering to the ever-growing [...]

The Celtics – A Moonstruck Dynasty?

2019-02-21T14:36:07-04:00February 21st, 2019|Categories: Featured, Sports|Comments Off on The Celtics – A Moonstruck Dynasty?

by Rick Winterson      Late Sunday evening, January 20, the moon underwent a total lunar eclipse.  Because the moon was at its closest point to the Earth when the eclipse went total, because it occurred in January when wolves bay in hunger, and because the eclipsed moon became a deep orange-red, this eclipse was called a “Super Wolf Blood Moon”. Now,  we are not superstitious – certainly not!  But on Sunday, January 20, (the day of the eclipse) the Patriots won the AFC title, and then two weeks later, went on to win the NFL Super Bowl on Sunday, February 3.  Did the mojo, the karma, or the blushing vibes from that eclipse influence this outcome?  It was an outcome that firmly established the [...]

2019-02-21T08:31:49-04:00February 21st, 2019|Categories: Featured, News|Comments Off on Trader Joe’s in South Boston?

by Rick Winterson    It’s more than just a rumor.  A Trader Joe’s may be coming to South Boston’s Fort Point/Seaport District, into an empty building on the border between Fort Point and the South Boston Seaport.  We don’t have many details here at South Boston Online just yet.  All we know at this time is that a formal inquiry has been made to the City of Boston Zoning Board about establishing a retail grocery store.  It was made by a Trader Joe’s agent; it’s to be situated in an empty (but renovated) building at 44 Thomson Place. Thomson Place stretches between Congress Street and Seaport Boulevard.  The intersection of Thomson Place and the Boulevard is closed to automobile traffic but is open for pedestrian [...]
