What’s your guess? West Quincy? D Street? I was originally thinking Revere with all the Iroc Z references, but then I saw the Quincy Quarries in the background. Anyway she goes by the name Dedikate….I guess a clever urban way to say her name is …

Believe it or not I do miss riding the T from time to time. It’s great if you dont want to get roped for 50 bucks to park your car at an event. If you get drunk…some Statie in a campaign hat is not going to give you a beatdown for driving sauced. And of course there is always the T’s incredible entertainment….there’s a huge talent pool that rides on a daily basis. Watch homeboy just jam out on the bus the other day….this is why it’s totally worth a fare increase.
It’s Prince Spaghetti day here in Boston! Over the years I have grown to love Italian culture….and of course the amazing food. Irish and Italians have forged a unique relationship over the generations here in Boston. We certainly poke fun at each other from time to time but we have more often than not worked side by side building this incredible city. It’s very common to find folks from this area that are from Irish and Italian decent as well. Hey…forget about it!! 🙂
There’s many Italian families from Boston who have also made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country as well. Enter SSGT. Anthony Buccini….shot down in action over France during WW2. His brother Al Buccini later moved from the North End and raised a family in Dorchester. He later named one of his sons Anthony who I became friends with.
The North End Historical Society recently started work on a documentary called Boston’s North End: America’s Italian Neighborhood. The documentary is being created from stories of the Italian-American community that has called the North End home for over 100 years.
If you have old photos, home movies or newspaper clips, the filmmakers would love to see them. Most of all, the creators would appreciate your monetary donations toward this project of preserving the legacy of the North End. Contact NorthEndHS@gmail.com or go to NorthEndBoston.org to contribute online.
It’s every Masshole’s right….right? You know the people that request the extra styrofoam cup for their iced coffee at Dunks. It does keep your coffee cooler but think of all that extra trash…
Well, South Shore native and friend of Dotrat.com actress Marguerite Insolia has made a PSA with her character “Dolly” to petition Dunks to drop this practice. Save your cups people!!
