Kathleen Powers was kind enough to mention us in her Somerville Blog on wickedlocal.com. If you haven't already, you really should take a peek at what they are posting over there....

From The Phoenix:
Posted at 05:08 by Carly Carioli
We'll spare you the long history of the effort, by the awesome folks who own the Middle East, to turn the old Somerville Armory into an even awesomer community arts center called the Center for the Arts at the Armory: if you want to follow along at home, read some of these articles. Suffice it to say that the process is ramping up, with a full-blown benefit for the center being staged just down Highland Avenue from the Armory at the Somerville Theater. Mission of Burma -- who're managed by longtime Armory supporter Mark Kates -- will headline the January 24 show, with the Neighborhoods and Faces on Film. You can get tickets before everyone else by going here, or you can wait until Saturday and get them through the usual channels. And just in case you doubt that Burma throws a good benefit, here's some video evidence from the last benefit they threw -- Burma for Burma -- and a bonus track from Faces on Film, recorded earlier this year at the Middle East.Read more..

Winter Hill, MA Weather Report
Saturday, December 13, 2008
A little research on my part led to some close-ish to Winter Hill establishments that might be of interest. Some that were previously not on my radar. I'm not endorsing any of these places, but they all seem to have decent yelp ratings. Here's the list for now:
Lil Vinny's Ristorante
Wang's Fast Food
Olde Magoun's Saloon
Ha, next we'll try to post about Winter Hill nightlife.
UPDATE: apparently Bread & Co. opened today. See this link for an early review.
Old news, but of Winter Hill interest:
The City has developed a preliminary plan for a streetscape and roadway improvement project for Broadway, between McGrath Highway and the City Line near Sullivan Square. Since this past winter the City has worked in conjunction with East Somerville Main Streets, and East Somerville residents and business owners to come up with a pedestrian-friendly, multi-modal, transit-oriented street that encourages people to walk, bike and gather along East Somerville's central business corridor."

Visit Lyndell's for a free cupcake today. And buy a pie while you're down there. WHR is of the mind that any and all 121 year old businesses in the area are worthy of our continued patronage. Particularly so when their product is so so delicious.
*Technically our accompanying photo is muffins not cupcakes. Please to forgive.
**I've been informed I should have given props (and/or stolen a photo from) to the kinda-Boston-based Broccoli is for Lovers.
