All You Can Eat Fenway Franks at South Street Diner on Opening Day!

Baseball is back! The Red Sox kick off their 2017 season tomorrow, Monday, April 3rd! Their home opener at Fenway is against the Pittsburg Pirates.

From 11am to 10pm, on Opening Day, South Street Diner (located at 178 Kneeland Street in Boston) is making the day even more special!

Come to the diner wearing your Red Sox gear and you’ll be entered to win a raffle for tickets to an upcoming game this season.

Of course the game will be on, so you can stay a while, sit back, relax and enjoy the first game. Purchase just one beer and you can eat all the steamed Fenway Franks you want.

Yup! All you can eat!

Not a bad deal. Narragansett, PBR and Miller Lite are $3.50. All other beers are $6.00, so there’s no need to break the bank.

Drink up, responsibly of course. Eat up and enjoy!

Free Sahaja Yoga at Quincy’s Thomas Crane Public Library!

*Updated 4/3/2017* 

There must have been a good response to the first few classes, because they have been extended until May! Classes are from 3pm – 4pm.

The types of yoga and the locations of free yoga classes in the Boston area continue to expand.

Starting this Saturday (February 11th – March 4th) and for the next four consecutive Saturdays, the Thomas Crane Public Library will offer free Sahaja Yoga sessions. The classes will be from 2pm – 3pm and you don’t need a yoga mat.

In this video, Shruti Bansal talks about Sahaja Yoga and what to expect. Below is a description of the yoga from the Sahaja Yoga website.

Sahaja Yoga is the Spontaneous Connection/Union with your true inner being i.e the Spirit through the awakening of a residual energy called Kundalini which resides dormant at the base of our Spine in a triangular bone called the Sacrum. 

Based on the video, this not a regular yoga class where you are moving around on a mat. It appears to be more focused on breathing and meditation.

I meditate regularly, but have never tried Sahaja Yoga, so I plan to get to at least one of these classes. Hopefully many of you will too!

Thank you to Thomas Crane Public Library for offering these classes!
