The staff at Zoots Dry Cleaning extracts stains and stress by pairing eco-friendly dry-cleaning services with the convenience of extended evening and Sunday hours, 24-hour drop-off and pickup services (available at most locations), and an automated drive-thru system. Team members clean clothes, draperies, bedding, and rugs with a biodegradable solvent as opposed to harsh PERC chemicals, and some staff are trained to expertly excise stains from the delicate lace and beadwork of bridal-gown bodices. Most stores also have a tailor on location who is able to alter ensembles in a snap. Customers get e-mail notifications when orders are ready or they can download a smartphone app to keep a close eye on the status of their dirty laundry.

A troupe whose talents are praised by the Boston Globe and the New York Times, the 16-years-young Boston Musical Theater transports audiences from their cares and woes through a melodious comedic revue. “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park,” directed by company founder Charlotte Kaufman, examines satire and humor through a tuneful lens. Ears hearken to four gifted singers quadrilaterally harmonizing satirical songs by composers such as Tom Lerher, George Gershwin, and Stephen Sondheim, flanked by a jazz trio who backs their every belt with interweaving instrumentals and enthusiastic high-fives. The performances ensue at the Maxwell Auditorium at the National Heritage Museum, a 390-seat setting that features six handicap-accessible seats and an up-to-date sound system. Seats are first come, first served, so arrive early to secure a favorite view of the stage or arrive late to instigate sudden sessions of musical chairs.
The YMCA keeps residents healthy and engaged in more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the country, but it traces its American origins to the streets of 19th-century Boston. Here, Thomas Valentine Sullivan carried on the mission started in London by George Williams: providing affordable recreation and residence to young men from cities and country towns alike. Over the last century and change, the organization's mission changed to keep pace with the evolving times; today, the YMCA of Greater Boston welcomes anyone interested in furthering the causes of "youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility."
This modern mission combines the Y's signature programming with new initiatives designed to keep citizens one step ahead of an ever-changing world. Members stay fit and active with everything from organized sports and fitness classes to lifeguard, CPR, and first aid lessons. But the Y's developmental programs go far beyond bodily strength; their enrichment and leadership courses equip youths with the confidence needed to take charge in their everyday lives, and ESL classes help newcomers to English embark on the next step of their linguistic lives.
