Craft Beer Tasting to Support SWB Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Thu, Mar 26, 2015

March Madness not your thing? Soccer Without Borders Boston is putting a new spin on tournament style brackets with their  blind tasting of regional craft beers. See below for their description:

"The event begins with bracket play, during which you taste and rank beers in three brackets.  Your top-ranked beers from each bracket will move onto the playoffs.  In a series of head-to-head challenges you'll re-taste your top-ranked beers from bracket play and move them through quarterfinal, semifinal and final rounds.  At the end of the night, you'll know your favorite craft beer represented and get to learn everyone else's!  Appetizers, a silent auction and a visit from Slyde the Fox and the New England Revolution Street Team will keep you energized and entertained between tasting rounds.  In the past years, Newburyport's Greenhead IPA and Harpoon's Longthaw IPA have won the most first-place votes from the crowd. Buy your tickets to find out which will be your favorite beer and vote on the top regional craft beer represented."

All proceeds from this event will go towards SWB's after school program for newcomer youth in East Boston.  

This event will be held on Friday, March 27 at 8pm at the Cambridge Community Center
Price: $35 - $95 
Deals available if you buy in pairs, option to join Champions Cirlce and get SWB Tasting Glass

Check out Bodega

Posted by Susie Callahan on Tue, Mar 24, 2015

From the outside, you'll see a less than impressive convienience store, but what's on the inside will blow you away. "Bodega, one of the coolest sneaker stores in the Northeastern United States. Situated on a quiet residential block in Boston, the unassuming storefront looks like a classic, fully-functional New York City—you got it—bodega. But walk to the back, trigger a tile in the floor, and watch as the Snapple machine slides away to reveal a sleek dark-wooded retail space, chock full of some of the most sought-after footwear, designer streetwear, and sportswear around."

Posted by Susie Callahan on Mon, Mar 23, 2015

Join Laugh Boston in their fight for immunity and check out their Laugh for Immunity event on March 25, 2015 - Boston's first ever Autoimmune Disease Awareness day! 50% of ticket sales will benefit the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA)

This event is part of an initiative called the 50 Cents for 50 Million Campaign, started by a group of students and young professionals, dedicated to finding cures for the millions of Americans battling autoimmune diseases. 

Did you know 80% of Americans can’t name a single autoimmune disease, even though they likely know many people who suffer from them?

"Due to this lack of awareness, research for autoimmune diseases is light years behind where it should be. We must begin paying attention to these crippling diseases. We must find treatments. We must find a cure."
