Free Bluebikes for World Mental Health Day

To recognize World Mental Health Day and to support community health and wellness, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (“Blue Cross”) is sponsoring free rides on Bluebikes, Metro Boston’s public bike share system, on Saturday, October 10. Riders can take Bluebikes for a spin, free of charge, from any of the more than 350 Bluebikes stations across the system’s eight municipalities including Boston!

Take A Hike

While crossing state lines may not be in everyone’s best interest, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy the foliage right here in our backyard! Head to Blue Hills Reservation to enjoy all the fall colors and views of the city all while keeping a safe distance from your fellow leaf peepers. COVID practices for the park are outlined here.

Bloodys + Burgers at 224

Brunch is back at 224 Boston Street. Sundays 10am-3pm.  You can sneak a peek at the menu here!

Carve or Decorate Pumpkins

This Halloween tradition, typically done at home, is the perfect way to get in the spooky spirit while practicing social distancing. Plus, you can support local by buying your pumpkins from Lambert’s on Morrissey Blvd and The Daily Market in Savin Hill or squash + gourds at the Ashmont Farmers Market open Fridays, from 3-7 PM on the Droser Plaza in at Ashmont MBTA. Save the date – on October 9th – it’s Grab and Go Pumpkin Fest from 4-7 at the market perfect for carving or placing on your stoop! 

Football is Back

There’s nothing that says Fall like tailgating and football. Although we may not be able to tailgate or attend games this year we can certainly still cheer on the Pats at home! Put on your jersey and order take-out from your favorite local pub! Check out delivery options here. Some of our favorites include Mexican Street Nachos from Lucy’s American Tavern, G Winz from Wingz and Tingz and the Bred Impossible Burger from Bred Gourmet. Don’t forget to stock up on game day snacks at American Provisions! 

Chicken + Fish

Help out Chez Vous – Boston’s Legendary Roller Rink – by attending their Chicken + Fish event on Sunday, October 11th from 2-6pm. Chez Vous is also selling really cool merchandise to raise funds too!  You can learn more here! 

National Pizza Month

Dorchester’s got some of the best pizza around! In honor of National Pizza Month, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite spots for pizza! You can check them out here!
