Sunday Fun Day in the South End

Hello ONEin3ers,

First off, let me clarify that I am not actually a socialite. I just wish I was one. Maybe if I were perhaps born a “Hilton” or had a ridiculously rich husband, then it would be all good. But no. For now I am just your typical young professional, working in Boston and trying to lead an active social life. As a proud member of the ONEin3 Boston community, I like to explore the city in my free time and frequent local establishments (seriously, did I just use that phrase?) and thought it’d be cool to report on my more interesting urban adventures…

So, this past Sunday I went to the South End, which may not seem that exciting to many, but let me preface this by explaining that I hardly ever leave Comm Ave, where I live AND work. If you’ve never been or just haven’t been in a while, I’d recommend getting brunch at Metropolis Cafe on Tremont Street (especially if you love pancakes), then browsing the SoWa Open Market (open Sundays from 10am - 4pm). The whole neighborhood is quaint in my opinion and full of hidden gems, but the SoWa is really a hip place to check out, full of local vendors and food trucks galore. And make sure you go soon-October 30 is the last day of the 2011 season.

Until next time…
