TUES 4/12: Ice Cream, Wakefield, Rally

If I had been on the ball, you would've known about Wye Oak playing at Middle East - Upstairs when the advance tickets were $10. You can still go for $12 (looks like tix are still available).


TUES 4/12

Noon to 8pm
Free Cone Day
at participating Ben & Jerry's stores

It's a warm day, so enjoy a free cone of delicious ice cream. This is usually a time when new flavors are introduced (e.g. Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream, available in a scoop), but you can ask for any flavor.

If you'd prefer a cup, I asked nicely and they accommodated me.

There are enough nearby locations to get more than one in 8 hours...

TUES 4/12

Tim Wakefield, "Knuckler: My Life with Baseball's Most Confounding Pitch": Booksigning
at Barnes & Noble, Prudential Center, 800 Boylston St, Boston (Back Bay)

Let's not judge Wakefield on last night's appearance. He seems like a great guy with many awesome wins in his 16 years with the Sox -- and he does quite a bit of charitable work.

If I worked near the Prudential Center, I'd go take a look at Wake (and get a free Ben & Jerry's cone at the food court).

TUES 4/12

"Fight Back! Turning the Tide in The Class War"
at SEIU Local 888, 52 Roland St, Charlestown (near Sullivan Sq)

Patrick McCabe (SEIU, Local 888): "Labor Fighting Back"
Denise Provost (State Rep., Somerville): "Fighting Back on State Budgets":
Gillian Mason (UMass Boston, MoveOn): "Fighting Back on Higher Ed Funding"

This looked like an interesting event. I don't think you have to volunteer or participate in any future events, but you might be inspired.

It is interesting how it seems like working-class people are sympathizing with millionaires and big-business to the possible detriment of their own interests.

You probably won't agree with everything (or anything) that's said, but that's fine.
