heroes among us

Do you have someone in your life who has been a force for good in the community? Someone who has shown selfless acts of kindness to those in need, a true hero? The catholic religion calls these corporal works of mercy—to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, visit the sick. I would have to say my brother Richard is a hero when it comes helping those in need. For 11 years Richard worked at the homeless shelter Pine Street Inn in Boston, managing in-kind donations and later running a job-training program for homeless men and women trying to get into the workforce. In his free time, he would set up a makeshift barber shop in the laundry room at the Barbara McInnis House, where Healthcare for the Homeless…

urban oasis

With so much coastline, the North Shore has surprisingly few beachfront dining options beyond pizza. Until recently, there were only a handful of upscale places where you can easily stick your toes in the sand before or after dinner to take a leisurely stroll. Restaurateur Michael Aldi has been changing that with a collection of spots just across the street from Revere Beach. Sleek Dryft, one of a trifecta of places Aldi has opened in new apartment towers along Ocean Ave., embraces its urban waterfront setting with stylish lighting and décor in a palette of blues and grays that complement the seafood and ocean breezes. Executive chef Adriano Silva’s menu is heavy on sharables, in support of the restaurant’s Miami Beach vibe. Silva, who came up in Barbara Lynch’s Boston empire, with…

stay golden

You can’t help but relax when you pass through the gate at the Sunset Club on Plum Island. Your shoulders will drop automatically as you take a deep breath of salty air, survey the convivial groups sitting at picnic tables or around the large gas fire pit, and think about a game of bocce with an on-point cocktail. The team behind Newburyport’s beloved Paddle Inn and a trio of Boston-area favorites keeps things easy-breezy with a tight menu of creative cocktails and Cali-Mex food at this new spot housed in a former auto repair shop. Primarily operating outside, the restaurant offers a COVID-friendly way to socialize safely, with 14 picnic tables, two bocce courts, cornhole, Jenga, and a sandbox and play area for the kids. Even the indoor space is full…

witch city

Tourists from across the country flock to Salem in October to visit the Witch Museum and the House of Seven Gables, and to celebrate Halloween. Salem Commons transforms into something resembling a carnival. Haunted houses frighten, and mediums prognosticate. If you have never been to the Witch City in the fall, you are missing an incomparable experience. The month-long festivities commence with the annual, family-friendly Haunted Happenings Grand Parade sponsored by the Salem Chamber of Commerce. This year’s theme, “Upside Down and Inside Out,” begins at 6:30 p.m. on October 7, followed by costume balls, the screening of horror films, and walking tours traversing Salem’s history and haunts. For a potentially haunted stay, make a reservation at the historic Hawthorne Hotel. Located next to Salem Commons, the Hawthorne typifies elegance. From its…

at your service

Located on the corner of Charles and Cambridge streets in Boston’s Beacon Hill, the Whitney is the perfect spot to explore the beauty and history of the city this fall. The 65-room luxury boutique hotel offers all the nostalgia and sophistication of a classic brick townhouse for which Beacon Hill is famous. The hotel derives its name from the site’s original owner, Henry Melville Whitney, a prominent Boston industrialist, who is also known for founding the West End Street Railway Company, known today as the MBTA. SENSE OF PLACE Entering the Whitney is like stepping into a posh and private Beacon Hill townhouse. The hotel recently won a Boston Preservation Alliance Award for marrying the original 1908 nurses’ residence with a sensitive addition, which honors original architectural details while creating a completely…
