I need to get out of the city.
I have zipcar and a few hours this weekend. I'm looking for a place that is not a bar/mall/place that has any dress code or expected dress where you go to be calm/relax/unwind etc. Any favorite spots?
I was looking through some past entries here on good ol' b0st0n, and I was wondering—I've got a bit of a, well, infection at the moment it seems, and without getting into too much detail, I think it's time to see a doctor.
I saw that Harvard Vanguard was recommended a lot, but I'm thinking that that would be more of a general practice kinda thing—you know, a doctor you always go to. I have a doctor back at home, but I'd like to see someone pretty soon. Would I be able to see a doctor at Vanguard just for a single visit? Is there a better alternative?
Thanks a ton!
EDIT: Maybe a podiatrist would be a better option...I'm not an expert, but I feel it's pretty general and could be taken care of by a regular doctor...
i purchased a zone 8 t-pass for the month of november. now i will not need it any more. is anyone interested in purchasing it? please private message me, comment here, or send an email to lorasays @ gmail.com.
if this is an inappropriate forum to sell such a thing, please let me know and i will delete the post.
I want to host a medium size (70-100 guests) going away party in two weeks on a very small budget. A VFW or Knights of Columbus post would be ideal, except those places do not have websites. Rather than calling each one to ask if they have a rental hall, does anyone have direct experience or can recommend a cheap rental hall in the Boston area? Boston area includes Newton, Dedham, West Roxbury, Somerville, etc.
I can only spend a few hundred for three/four hours on a weekend night, including bartender. Food is an extra cost and may be catered from an outside vendor depending on the in-house cost. Honestly, I would not mind order a few dozen pizzas and calling it a day.
Moving is stressful enough, so any help is appreciated!
Edit - I decided over the past hour since this post to stick with the deal I already found (secret contact at the Newton Elks Lodge), but change the date. Did I mention I'm already stressed? But thanks to those who responded :)
Well hey there everyone.
It's the start of the holiday season and I am looking for some charitable organizations to volunteer with. Does anyone know of groups that give out thanksgiving baskets (we did this in Detroit but it was usually churches) or anyone that works with kids/womens shelters in the city?
Basically, I want to spend my holidays helping the less fortunate (or anyone who needs help really) so if someone could point me in the right direction, that would be great.
Side note: I would prefer to work for a non-profit so the Salvation Army is out. Also, I know about the big organizations like Good Fellows, Meals on Wheels and Toys for Tots. I was hoping to find something more local/grassroots because I figure that they will need more help.
