On the Town: Something BIG This Way Comes

For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past several weeks, there's a party happening on Sunday. A big party. A party celebrating the arts in Boston like no other party ever has—and likely never will. When brainstorming names for this party, many options were considered; but in the end only one was able to accurately convey the immensity of this event. Thus, The Big Party was born. Essentially, if you leave your home and go out #OnTheTown only once this weekend, it should be for this party. Let's get started then, shall we?

On the Town: The Good News Edition

Posted by Kyle Thomas Hemingway on Jul 18, 2013 8:00:00 AM | 0 comments | On the Town

There's been an excess of ridiculously depressing news this week, and paired with temperatures that align with my personal conceptions of the apocalypse, these have all been a big bummer. Then, however, I discovered a couple of little nuggets that restored my faith in humanity (I also stepped back inside the air conditioning, which aided my positive outlook immensely). It turns out this week was a great one for the institution of marriage. Queen Elizabeth II signed same-sex marriage into law in the UK and superdiva Tina Turner got married in Switzerland, both events bolstering my "Must Move to Europe Now" convictions. Let's celebrate these wonderful triumphs out #OnTheTown because what's love got to do with it? Everything!

Spotlight On: 19th Amendment

[Editor's note: we're kicking off a new series of blog posts (clever name pending) profiling groups from past Punch Bowl Funds, highlighting their current projects—especially any crowdfunding they might be undertaking. And we're excited to welcome Crystal Germond to the Opus Affair blog as the author of this series.]

Remember the lovely Amanda Curtis and Gemma Sole? You might have made their acquaintance back in May, when their company 19th Amendment participated in the Punch Bowl Fund. The Boston-based virtual showroom takes their slogan, “Democratizing Fashion,” seriously. Not only do they provide a “platform and portfolio tool for fashion designers to showcase their work” but we, the consumers, can vote on designs and provide feedback as well as purchase exclusive, wearable works of art!
