Boston’s Pools Opening Soon for Summer

Soon, you’ll be able to cool down in a city pool any day of the week. The city announced on Monday that Boston’s 10 Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF) city swimming pools and one city beach will stay open every day of the week starting on June 29.  In addition to the 10 pools open seven days a week, all of the city’s pools are open on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. During the week, pool hours vary depending on location.  Luckily for South Enders, one pool that will remain open all week is the South End’s BCYF Blackstone pool, located on 50 West Brookline St. This year marks the second in a row the city has decided to open its pools early.  “With the warm weather on its way, we want our residents to be able to beat the heat seven days a week,” Mayor Tom Menino said. “We have amazing facilities in the city, and I encourage all our families to take advantage of them.” The BCYF pools that will open seven days a week are: BCYF Blackstone (South End) BCYF Clougherty (Charlestown) – outdoor pool BCYF Curley Beach (South Boston) – beach BCYF Curtis Hall (Jamaica Plain) BCYF Draper (West Roxbury) BCYF Flaherty (Roslindale) BCYF Holland (Dorchester) BCYF Mason (Roxbury) BCYF Mildred Avenue (Mattapan) BCYF Mirabella (North End) – outdoor pool, opens June 22 BCYF Paris Street (East Boston) You can check the full listing of pools and contact information on the city’s website.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

‘We Have Never Needed Them More’: Boston Celebrates Opening of New Rehabilitation Hospital

At the grand opening of a new, state-of-the-art facility where clinicians will help people adapt to amputations and other traumatic injuries, Boston Mayor Tom Menino and others celebrated the strength of the city of Boston and the strength of the human spirit Saturday night. Benefactors, hospital staff and city officials gathered Saturday night at a tent set up outside the new nine-story Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in the Charlestown Navy Yard. Since its founding in 1970, Spaulding has provided in- and out-patient services for people recovering from a range of issues, including spinal cord and brain injuries, strokes, amputations and burns. Some of the hospital’s clinicians were waiting at the finish line when the two bombs went off at the Boston Marathon on Monday, and the staff will be there in their new facility when several of the people injured in the blasts begin the process of healing and adapting to their devastating injuries. With construction of the new, 132-bed hospital, “Spaulding will carry on a proud tradition, which says that strength can be recovered, damage can be repaired and defeat is never an option,” Spaulding President David Storto said. “This new hospital will be a place of hope and of healing, of learning and innovation and of grace and compassion.” He mentioned specifically the role of the hospital in light of recent events. “To those who survived the marathon bombings with catastrophic injuries: Rest assured that Spaulding and our extremely talented and dedicated and compassionate staff will provide the best rehabilitation care available in the world, and rest assured that we will work with them and their families to achieve a quality of life that they likely cannot even imagine at this early juncture of their recovery. As President Obama said at the interfaith service a few days ago, many of them will walk again and will run again.” The mayor, who was himself a patient at Spaulding this past fall, spoke at the gala about the staff’s compassion and endurance with patients. “We’re so lucky to have Spaulding in our city,” he said. Several speakers at the event mentioned the importance of celebrating the new hospital after such a difficult week in Boston. “It’s wonderful to be able to gather together as a community after the tragic events of this week. What better setting than in this place where healing of body and soul are at the heart of our mission and where we can all find our strength together,” said Scott Schoen, chairman of the Spaulding Board of Trustees. “Like all of you here this evening I am saddened and angered by the violence that was brought to […]

Boston Chops, Urban Steak Bistro, Opening in February on Washington Street

When you walk into the South End’s newest steakhouse when it opens in a few weeks, the first thing you’ll notice is the dramatic transformation of the physical space at 1375 Washington Street. The large ornate wooden ceiling that gave a unique Asian feel to former restaurant Ginger Park is now gone, replaced instead with an exposed celing and a full wall of dark exposed brick.  “All people were asking was, ‘Are you keeping the ceiling?’” co-owner Brian Piccini. “Well, we gutted the ceiling. We’ve left the steel beams all exposed, painted and lit up and that helps create a more casual modern feel to it.” Piccini, with chef Christopher Coombs, is behind the restaurant’s new take on a steakhouse. The two are no stranger to the restaurant business, having opened dbar, an upscale restaurant, nightclub and lounge, at 1236 Dorchester Ave. in 2005, and in late 2010, the duo got their second venture, Deuxave, up and running at 371 Commonwealth Ave. in Back Bay. Piccini said the restaurant will stay true to focusing on the quality of the meat, but will also provide ancillary cuts to utilize the whole cow and provide different price points for patrons.  “The South End is very forward thinking, so we wanted to do a modern take on what a steak house can be,” said Piccini. The concept of the menu is that customers will pick their cuts of meat, pick their sauce, and get a piping hot plate of fresh frites to go with it.  “We will have some exceptional cuts for people who want that really nice special piece of prime meat, but we’re also going to have a wide range,” he said, noting that sirloin, tenderloin and rib eye is only 15 percent or so of the whole cow. “We don’t want to have that super expensive product here; I don’t think that’s what the South End needs.”  All the steakhouse’s meat products will be supplied by John Duare at Kinnealy Company. Piccini said the meat is already aging in the company’s warehouse.  The restaurant’s drink program will be cocktails unique to the restaurant and seasonally influenced, but the specifics of the drink and wine menu haven’t been set yet, said Piccini. With a bar made of steel inlays and heavy reclaimed wood that runs the length of the entire space, it’s safe to say drinks will be an important part of the experience.  The South End is particularly special to Piccini, as Tremont Street’s Aquitaine was where he got his start in the restaurant business. Piccini, who was a classicly trained pianist, was laid off at Top of the Hub after the attack on Sept. 11th […]
