August Headlines

Glossier Boston

Boston’s newest pop-up, Glossier has finally opened and we are ready to try out all of their must-have products. You can’t miss the signature pink shop located at 85 Northern Ave in the Seaport District. The shop is separated into smaller houses where you can find all of your beauty essentials, along with exclusive new Boston merchandise. The Glossier pop-up will be located here until October 4th, and is open everyday from 11 am - 7pm. We definitely plan on stopping in and stocking up; it’s our own version of “back to school” shopping!

St. Anthony’s Feast

With Summer coming to an end, we’re choosing food festivals over ‘beach bods’. Mark your calendars for Saint Anthony’s Feast from August 22nd-25th. This has become the largest religious food festival in New England. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the festival this year, visitors can indulge in Boston's best food, live music and plenty of family-friendly activities! The annual festival is located on Endicott, Thacher & N. Margin Streets in Boston’s North End. Mangiare!

Friday Night Lights & Movies

Soak in the last few weeks of summer in the city and head over to the Esplanade for a Friday night movie with family and friends. WBZ News presents Free Friday Flicks for the 34th year! This event is free, all you need is a lawn chair and/or blanket. The WBZ movie night also consists of free games and giveaways. What better way to watch a family movie with one of the city’s best backdrops!

Checking out Time-Out Market

The Time-Out Market is not your average food hall. Located in the Landmark Center in Fenway, it features 15 of Boston’s hottest restaurants including Craigie Burger, Saltie Girl, Monti Roman Pizzeria, Revolution Health Kitchen, and many many more. Just looking for a spot to grab a drink before the next Sox game? They’ve also got you covered with a full bar, featuring signature margaritas and new takes on classic cocktails. With so many incredible choices, we’re not even sure we’d make it to the ballgame, and we’re kind of okay with that (sorry Sox).

Summer Getaway: The Cape

We’re rounding out our Summer Getaways with the Cape! We are still doing the research on best lobster roll and ice cream shop, but right now front runners include The Lobster Pot in P-town and Four Seas Ice Cream in Barnstable! When it comes to places to stay, if you’re further down the cape, you really can’t beat Chatham Bars Inn. And if you’re looking for the best atmosphere for cocktails, Wequassett’s outdoor bar is the spot. For those that prefer a more local atmosphere, we highly suggest The Squire.

Some of our other favorite spots include: Crisp in Osterville, Anejo in downtown Hyannis and the infamous Chart Room in Falmouth! It’s way too hard to pick favorites, but you truly can’t go wrong with any town on the Cape. It’s got something for everyone, and will always be our happy place!
