As the sun makes its retreat into the horizon, the whales of Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary come out to play. Their elephantine fins slap the waters with such zeal that the pod seems to be putting on a performance for the catamaran of whale watchers in their midst. This end-of-day nature show experienced by passengers aboard Boston's Best Cruises’ New England Aquarium Whale Watch is hardly a rarity, as the ship’s crews guarantee sightings of these gentle giants with each excursion.
Champions of the natural beauty of Boston Harbor and the area’s rich maritime history, Boston's Best Cruises’ expert crew sets sail on cruises to suit all manner of interest. Along with their whale watches, Boston’s Best Cruises whisks passengers away on Harbor Cruises that grant unimpeded views of the Boston skyline and the King Kongs pumping fists within its skyscrapers. The Salem Ferry facilitates leisurely cruises between Boston and the historic city, and aquatic outings to the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area enable activities such as sunset clambakes, hiking, and fishing.
One of SmallCanBeBig.org’s current projects aims to fund EMT job training for a local mother of two. Because one of her daughters lives with a serious heart condition, she must often take unpaid leave from work to keep her child healthy. Living with an insecure source of income and a chronically ill child leaves the family struggling to pay bills and rent. Continued education to become an EMT would help provide a stable income and the ability to readily respond to her daughter’s medical needs.
When describing Master Paul Cervizzi, many terms come to mind: lawyer, Boston College alumnus, World Karate Union Hall of Fame inductee, and even World Martial Arts Hall of Fame inductee. In September of 2011, Master Cervizzi earned the title of Soke by the International Alliance Sokeship Council, a title he wields proudly when teaching students at Cervizzis Martial Arts.
The expert instructors at Cervizzis Martial Arts lead classes for all ages and skill levels, ranging from child and teen self-defense to adult self-defense and fitness. They also lead specialty programs that include mixed-martial-arts classes, which combine techniques from styles such as judo, Brazilian jujitsu, boxing, and wrestling.
Jamie Kennedy is a veteran of comedy, known for a razor sharp wit that is best showcased in front of a live audience. If you’re not familiar with his stand-up, you probably know him from his appearances in numerous movies, like the Scream franchise, or his hilarious prank show, The Jamie Kennedy Experiment. He's depicted above looking tough in front of a fence and with some gloves on, and I think he might have been the killer in Scream, so you might want to be careful when your in close proximity to his aforementioned razor wit. Here's a clip of his standup.
Jazz has had many homes over the years. Born in the South, moving to New Orleans and Chicago, and a world traveler in its old age, the musical form brings to mind myriad influences. Darryl’s Corner Bar & Kitchen is inspired by the storied musical form, from its lively cuisine to its song-filled atmosphere. Live jazz musicians coax classic strains and improvised notes from their instruments Tuesday through Sunday, drawing from every chapter of the genre’s varied history. Chefs riff on the bluesy style with a delectable menu of Southern eats, from crispy cheese grits with shrimp to fried chicken atop buttermilk waffles. The club’s vibrant lights and exposed-brick walls call to mind some of the most renowned jazz bars to be found in New Orleans or Chicago. To enhance this antique-nightclub atmosphere, bartenders whip up a lineup of craft cocktails while referring to their patrons as “hot chick” or “cool Felis catus.”
France has graciously loaned three things to America: flag colors, Gerard Depardieu, and the cuisine behind today’s Groupon. For $20, you’ll get $50 worth of contemporary French cuisine at North End’s Sensing Restaurant. The literal brainchild of famed French chef Guy Martin—no, you may not call him "French Guy" for short—this modestly upscale establishment brings Paris to the Fairmont Battery Wharf via authentic cuisine, fine wines, and words with a silent but deadly x. The restaurant recently received AAA’s prestigious Four-Diamond rating, so feast with the confidence of a hypocrite lecturer, mon semblable… mon frère!LibertyFrance: The ideal of liberty consists of being able to do anything that does not harm others.USA: Liberty is used mostly to wear pajama pants outside.
