Sox owner Tom Werner’s ‘Blaze’ pizza coming to a storefront near you

It seems some current Panera Bread franchisees have also secured the rights to open up 15 new Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza outlets in the Boston area. Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner is an investor in the California-based Blaze. We can think of a number of decent locations in Beacon Hill, Back Bay and the general [...]



Signs of change in Boston: Skyscraper signs are back!

Under an old city rule (enforced pretty strictly by the Menino administration), putting corporate signs on top of Boston buildings and skyscrapers was strictly verbotten. But that’s changing, with both Converse and Vertex now having large corporate signs on their new headquarter buildings in, respectively, the North Station and Seaport areas. The catch: Only companies [...]



Hey, maybe Bostonians aren’t as stressed out as we thought

Boston can be a stressful town: Masshole drivers, ornery residents, absurdly high real estate prices, densely populated neighborhoods and towns, etc. It seems you can’t escape it, even on vacations here. But it appears Boston doesn’t rank in the top ten cities for stress in the US. It’s not a list you’d want to be [...]



The BRA approves new Boston Food Market

From the Globe: “Plans for the year-round market along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway were approved Thursday night by the Boston Redevelopment Authority. The project, expected to cost $14 million, will include up to 45 vendors as well as a bakery, seafood raw bar, and demonstration kitchen staffed by local chefs.” No mention, though, when [...]



Breaking news: Pepe’s Pizza coming to Boston

OK, more non-housing news, but this one is big: Pepe’s Pizza of New Haven is reportedly planning to open a shop in Boston. Anyone who’s been to the original Pepe’s in New Haven knows it has first-class, old-school, delicious thin-crust pizza. And, yes, we’re talking Santarpio’s style and level of pies, arguably even better. Pepe’s [...]



They’re serious about building a new ‘twin’ Sagamore Bridge

Granted, we were more than a little skeptical last month when it was first reported that state officials were mulling a new “twin” Sagamore Bridge to relieve traffic congestion to and from Cape Cod. But the BBJ has a story (sub. req.) and it seems state officials are quite serious about the idea: The state [...]



Hey, let’s tear down most of downtown Boston for the Olympics

The Globe has a story (sub. req.) about a new commission study that says, yes, Boston, could theoretically handle the Summer Olympics in 2024 in terms of security and hotel rooms etc. But – well, er, cough, cough – it would take a “monumental task” to actually do it, the commission says. Monumental is a [...]



Report: Henry is selling Globe’s Morrissey Boulevard HQ

There’s a little room here for John Henry, the new owner of the Boston Globe, to still downplay, clarify or backtrack from his comments. But Boston magazine’s quote from Henry sure sounds like he’s made up his mind about moving the newspaper out of its current location on Morrissey Boulevard to somewhere else. The Herald [...]



February surprise: State may finally re-open Esplanade swimming pool

With a major snowstorm arriving today, maybe it’s not the most appropriate time to be thinking of summer and swimming. But: The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) has affirmed its willingness to reopen the Lee Memorial Wading Pool on the Charles River Esplanade, but more than 15 years after the facility’s closure, the timeline [...]



Cheers! Barros backs later closing hours for Boston bars and restaurants

Mayor Marty Walsh’s new economic director, John Barros, says he favors later night hours for Hub businesses, i.e. bars and restaurants. Barros, who we believe is or was a part owner of a restaurant, seems to understand that the city’s old closing hours are just too, well, old fashioned, with many establishments giving last call [...]
