Winter Hill: Growing number of "artistic folk."

Chris Orchard of Somerville Patch points us to an article in the March issue of Boston Magazine singing praise to Somerville and noting "East Somerville and Winter Hill as areas with a growing number of "artistic folk.""

 At the time of this post, at least one Somerville commenter doesn't like the comparison.

Down the Hill: Radio Bar, Union Square

Radio in Union Square opened in October of 2011. Really great cozy place providing a nice complement to Union Square late night neighbors (PA's/Sally O'Briens/Bull McCabe's) and deserving of support. Their Facebook page says a kitchen is coming in fall. Here's a snapshot of Riki Rocksteady and the Arrangements doing their awesome Specials homage from Saturday night.

Porchfest Returns to Somerville

Last year's 'Porchfest', sponsored by the Somerville Arts Council was a truly charming neighborhoodesque collaboration of high quality low key performances throughout the City.

Not surprising that we will be seeing another Porchfest this year (registration is open now!). Hope to hear lots of sound from the porches on Winter Hill: Saturday, May 19th starting at noon. Photo below borrowed from BradKellyPhoto's flickr photostream.
