Crowded: Keytar Bear Fundraiser

Recently a local street performer, Keytar Bear, was punched in the face (twice!) in Faneuil Hall, a place both deeply connected to our history but often removed from resident's everyday experience. This incident, which broke his keytar but not his spirit, could've been a sad example of a side of Boston too often mistaken for the whole. Community builder Abigail Taylor of Workbar and a group of fans, strangers, and fellow artists have rallied around their neighbor to do the right thing.

Industrial Arts: Josey Packard & Jill McDonough

Industrial Arts is where we talk to some of our favorite hospitality professionals about their involvement in the non-culinary, non-mixological arts.

Josey Packard makes brilliant cocktails at Drink, and sings and plays guitar in a local rock band, Chelsea On Fire. She’s married to Jill McDonough, who teaches poetry at UMass Boston. We chatted with Jill & Josey at two different bars in one evening. We started by talking about music at Audubon.
