An Cù Liath Irish Pub City Run

Somerville Striders Athletic Club
Kelley Sq the next Davis Sq??  The jury is still out on that but if I were betting real dollars on the next Davis Sq I would look just a couple of miles east of Davis to Union Sq in Somerville.  Being a Somerville native that lived through the transformation of Davis Sq , and spending a little time this weekend in the city, it is pretty evident to me that Union Sq is deep into it's reincarnation and up next for a big time boom. With a major road reconstruction project in the works and the MBTA planning to extend the greenline to the Sq giving it a direct public transportation connection with Boston, good times are ahead much like when the Redline was extended to Davis Sq in the early eighties.  Rather than resist the change the people there have embraced it as evidenced by the United Nationsy feel of the Sq. Newer businesses of many ethnic backgrounds coexist with longtime merchants to give the area a unique collection of stores and restaurants.
What does all that have to do with Worcester?  I don't know if it has anything to do with it, just making an observation.  But having lived through the days of "Slummerville" and "Scumerville" and all kinds of other slurs and put downs, I guess if it can happen there it can happen anywhere. Perhaps good things are coming for the "City on The Move".  Gentrification is not necessarily a bad thing despite the musings of some city pols.
Happy "cakeless" birthday to Patricia McKeon.  Everybody sang to Patti tonight but if there was a cake I didn't see it and believe me I am always on the lookout for cake, much like a four year old.  Maybe the best way to put it is a night with no Tracy Flynn is a night with no cake. Not a total loss however as Sherri St Pierre, like Tracy a Shrewsbury resident, brought along some cupcakes baked by her kids. So maybe every single one of 'em was a different size and shape but that didn't make then taste bad. Thanks St Pierre kids!
This Saturday is the first annual "Worcester Pub Run" put together by Monday regular and really tall guy, Kevin Hardiman.  If you like beer and you like running why not combine the two on a summer Saturday afternoon.
Nice group of Highland City Striders came out tonight and everyone of them and the rest of us were on the receiving end of a spanking laid down by Sarah Joyce.  With no dog and no husband to hold her back this week, Sarah went out to win and did just that.  Nice job Sarah.
Next Monday is "Make your own Sundae" night courtesy of the Curley's and An Cu Liath. 
Run a little eat a lot. That's what we do. SS
