Working on the Night Shift

We typically head to the Esplanade to get in a walk or run, but now thanks to Night Shift Brewing’s new pop-up beer garden, The Owls Nest, we can enjoy happy hour as well. Open from late afternoon and on, the Owls Nest is the perfect spot to post up and enjoy a beer and a great view, after a long day. Night Shift Brewing debuted The Owl’s Nest, their seasonal pop-up beer garden, last year, and us Bostonian’s rejoiced now that they’re back for year 2! Serving up fresh craft beers and wines, this family-friendly (and dog-friendly) space is one of our favorites!

Yeezy Drop

The popular Kanye West Yeezy V2 350 and V2 700 will be released in new colorways coming early this June. The drop will be releasing a stealthy "Black" color scheme which will come in both static and reflective material for the 350’s and a “Vanta” (black/dark gray) color for the 700’s. The Yeezy 700 V2’s drop on June 6th, the Yeezy 350 V2 Statics drop on June 7th, and the rumored 350 Static Reflectives are TBD, but should be dropping anywhere from the 5th-8th in select locations. The Hyperspace, Clay, and Desert Boot Rock colors sold out fast in March along with the limited April and May drops so don’t forget to log online or pick these new releases up in stores ASAP. - JF


Summer Getaway: Newport

Filled with great food, beach and ocean views, luxurious hotels and an abundance of activities, Newport is the perfect spot for an early summer trip. One of our favorite activities is to grab a picnic basket and set up the perfect tailgate at Newport’s International Polo Series. This month the matches will take place on the 8th, 14th, 15th, 22nd, 26th, and 29th. The Newport International Polo Series features teams from around the world & from major US cities competing against USA / Newport. The coming season (tickets and schedule) promises an exciting lineup of action-packed polo matches, international team debuts and memorable special events for fun on and off the field, supported by an enthusiastic spectator audience. And if you’re making it an overnight stay, we highly suggest one of our favorites, The Chanler. We typically begin and end our trips to Newport with a stop on the lawn of Castle Hill Inn. Whether it’s taking in a sunrise or sunset, nothing beats a summer view in this coastal oasis.
