Bronwyn to bring Eastern European flare to Cambridge

 

bronwynUnion Square in Somerville is known for its bars, eateries and history. That's why Bronwyn will be a wonderful addition to this neighbhorhood's already happening environment.  

Bronwyn's atmosphere is comfortable and contemporary. The owners, a husband and wife duo, plan to "pay homage to their German roots by serving food and drink inspired from the region" which will  include Bavarian sausages, riesling sauerkraut, pretzels and foie gras.

"This new spot has the potential of joining the already flourishing nightlife scene of Union Square. It plans to offer Eastern and Central European beers, but local beer fans don't fret -- American beers that are brewed in the European style will also be available. Craft cocktails, wines from central Europe, and schnapps will also make up the drink menu."

While Bronwyn opens May 15, you can start making reservations on May 11.

Gentleman to Dick. (I know, right?)

 

Hey, they said it first, so quit threatening to wash my mouth out!

If you are in for a thrilling afternoon or evening in Boston, this place is a must! For all of you gentlemen out there, if you are having trouble figuring out how to really drive your significant other crazy, then this place is a one stop tutorial! (make sure to bring your notepad!)

Make sure to keep your game face on because these waitors won't hesitate to forget that manners even exist. Their actions are distasteful, but you can't help but chuckle with confusion when your silverware is THROWN on the table, or you're ignored time and time again.

7. Swan Boots
For over 130 years, the Swan Boats have been a part of the Boston experience. As a welcome sign of Spring, they grace the waters of the Boston Public Garden, the first botanical garden in the United States. Famed in the stories Make Way for Ducklings and The Trumpet of the Swan, the Swan Boats are the only boats of their kind in the world.

To the delight of the young and old for over 130 years, the Swan Boat tradition has been preserved by the Paget Family to provide our residents and visitors with a unique Boston memory to endure for generations.

6. SOWA Market - Holiday and all

Open Sundays. May 1st through October 30th. 10AM-4pm. 460 Harrison Ave, Boston MA.
The SoWa Open Market ® offers a shopping experience like no other in Boston. With an ever-changing group of artisans, a hip location and the chance to feel the sun on your face while you browse, it’s a trip worth making. The market offers the opportunity to meet the artists, vendors and farmers behind the work. Every week offers shoppers something different and unique – you won’t want to miss it!

5. Frog Pond Come Shine or Come Snow

The Boston Common Frog Pond is managed through a public-private partnership between the Skating Club of Boston, the Boston Parks Department and the City of Boston. From wading in water in Boston's heat to ice skating in the winter.
For general information about the Frog Pond – including hours of operation, skating lessons and reservations – we encourage you to browse this website.

4. Tour Boston on Bicycle

To get more information check out their site: Walk'n Mass
Where: Marino Recreation Center |369 Huntington Ave
When:Thursday, Apr 21 7:00a to 6:00p

3. Aquarium & Science Museum
If you're looking to relax watching the fish or want to learn something AWESOME. These two attractions never bore. Even the IMAX has something going on that is guaranteed to please.

2.  The BeeHive
We figured since the Beehive has the most mentions on our site, we should suggest them. With a great atmosphere, food and music, the Beehive should be made a "must" on any Bostonian's list.

1. Duck Tours

You've never toured Boston in anything that comes close to Boston Duck Tours. The fun begins as soon as you board your "DUCK", a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle. Tour throughout Boston in these vehicles, well constantly quacking and learning about Boston. It's a guaranteed good time, and is a constant in Boston. You know Spring is here when the Duck Tours start up again.

We hope you've enjoyed 365 so far. There is much much more to come. If you have event suggestions, please share!! It's all about community here!!
