Bostonian Habits, Neighborhoods

Boston Roommates

I think we represent this cross section of Roommate types from apartmentlist.com pretty well on WeLoveBeantown.

I will say that I live in Brighton, and I would like to switch “where I would also live” with “where I avoid”…I’m also terrified of riding bikes in the city… no “fixie” for me… and it will probably take me an hour and a half to get anywhere due to the 57 bus line.

Boston Strong

That is one amazing sand castle.

It makes me realize I’ve got a helluva lot of sand sculpting skills to learn to do if I ever want to create anything more than a big mound with a “moat” or the ever-classic “Human covered in sand” – the people that create these sculptures are impressive.

Twenty-five artists created 15 pieces surrounding the Boston Strong tribute sculpture as part of the annual National Sand Sculpting Festival at Revere Beach this past weekend.

And the rainbow in this photo is just the icing on the cake of amazingness, very fitting given the sentiments of the sculpture.

Thanks to Lee Costa for posting this gem on our We Love Beantown Flickr page. It’s not crazy hot anymore, but we’re still in the thick of summer, so get thee to a beach and get your sand sculpt on!

But the nation that has trumped the UN’s rolled food race would be Mexico with their delectable burritos.

What happens when Architecture students and charity collide?

You get a wicked cool T-Shirt design for an awesome cause… although might say I am a slighty biased because two of my students were members of the team who designed this sweet logo…I’ll let you be the judge…

Wentworth

I could not be prouder of these Wentworth students, who told News @ WIT, they set a goal of selling 40 shirts to result in a $260 donation to the OneFund.

They blew that goal out of the park… not by 100 shirts, not by 200, but as of this post, 3489 shirts!!

The money raised, from their awesome shirts, thus far totals over $20,000 going directly into the hands of the people directly affected by the April 15th tragedy.

ONLY ONE MORE DAY to get your shirt here and help double their dontation!!!

The five students behind the project are Dan Sussman, BMET ’16, Zach Cariveau, BMET ’16, Patrick Christan, BSA ’16, Jon Silva, BSA ’16, and Austin Speer, BMET ’16.
