Sometimes you don’t want your weekend to end on Sunday. And other times your schedule is so busy that it doesn’t start until Sunday. Thankfully, you aren’t alone. Who doesn’t love a good Sunday Funday every once in a while (once a week)? Here are the best spots in Boston for all of your Sunday Funday activities.

Brunch

Eastern Standard — 528 Commonwealth Ave, Boston MA

Eastern Standard is a restaurant with a classy atmosphere, easy parking and cool outdoor seating. If you’ve come for the bar alone, you’re in luck. The expansive variety of alcohol leaves all of your cocktail creations up to the imagination and they’re still open ‘till 2 a.m. They serve brunch from 9 a.m. — 3 p.m. and the menu offers everything from a house-smoked salmon bagel sandwich to a Bloody Mary and “Hangover Soup.” You can’t go wrong here.

Article 24 — 458 Western Ave, Brighton MA

A bit off the beaten path, Article 24 is a new restaurant in a developing neighborhood in Brighton/Allston. While their nightlife activities were their main focus for a while, they have developed into one of the hottest places around to get brunch. The parking is easy and their brunch cocktail menu is as big as their food menu itself. They even have days where their brunches are themed (ex: EDM themed). Pick a Sunday and dress accordingly!

Strip by Strega — 64 Arlington St, Boston MA

Make your own Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar — Need I say more?!

Happy Hour/Dinner Spots

Barracuda Tavern - 15 Bosworth Street, Boston MA

With it’s nautical décor and extensive beer and wine menu, Barracuda Tavern is the place to be. The menu has a wide variety of options from seafood to non-sea food and gluten free and vegetarian options as well. They’re known for their $0.50 per-oyster deal on Sundays!

Whiskey’s — 885 Boylston St, Boston MA

While happy hour alcohol specials haven’t been allowed in Boston for quote some time, there is no rule in regards to happy hour involving food! Whiskey’s offers a laid-back atmosphere for (mostly) 20-somethings, who come for the $0.25 wing specials on Sundays! There are many other “bar bite” specials, including $2.99 pizza ‘till 4 p.m., and the crowd doesn’t really start building until 10 p.m., so you have plenty of time to relax and enjoy a cheap-eat before the night begins.

Morton’s The Steakhouse — 2 Seaport Ln, Boston MA

Okay, bear with me. The usual prices of Morton’s menu items could put a serious dent in your wallet. However, they have specially-priced “bar-bites” menu on during happy hour from 4:30 p.m. — 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. — close (including Sundays) that allow you to try some of their famous dining-room dishes at a fraction of the cost. Enjoy crab cake bites and tiny filet mignon sandwiches without draining your entire bank account.

Bars

Bleacher Bar — 82A Lansdowne St, Boston MA

Located underneath the bleachers in center field at Fenway, Bleacher Bar is open seven days a week, 365 days a year. However, the laid-back vibe of this sports bar is perfect for any Sunday Funday. The incredible view of Fenway park is enough to convince you to come here.

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:


“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:

“FISH STICK! I NAMED HIM FISH STICK BECAUSE HE'S A FISH STICK, OF COURSE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 59)

When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:


"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)

A Love Letter To My Air Fryer

And why you would love an fryer too...

280

In a previous article, I wrote about how love to use Trello.com for organizing things. I'm still loving Trello. I've haven't grown bored of it and stopped using it (like I have with some other organizational systems). This time, I'm going to share another item that I love, and it's for one of my favorite things, food! I finally gave in and bought an air fryer, and after my first use, I literally said that it's wonderful! I bought a small air fryer. It only holds about two quarts, but it's perfect for quick lunches.

I thought I'd love the air fryer if it could dry fry food with little to no oil, and it does just that. I'm also in love with the air fryer, because I could simply put the food in it, set the timer and live my life for a few minutes until the food is done. I don't have to stand over it and watch the food cook. That makes the air fryer a winner! Did I mention that it really does work?! Yes, it does work. Now, you could buy foods that are already breaded and throw them in the air fryer, but if you want to go the healthier route, you can use bread crumbs, flour, and eggs to make your own crispy coatings for your foods. Dipping your food in your own homemade batter cuts out some of the salt and added chemicals in the frozen pre-fried foods.

You can also fry foods that do not even need a homemade batter. Without using the batter, I've made sweet potato French fries and burritos in it. The tortilla for the burrito turned out nicely crispy, but I didn't leave it in the air fryer long enough for it to be crunchy. The sweet potato fries came out nice. I've tried making crispy chickpeas with Italian seasoning, but they weren't to my liking. However, I have loved everything else that I've made in the air fryer. Sometimes I just put a quick meal in it, just to re-heat it, since I don't use a microwave. I just think that using the air fryer is healthier than using microwaves, and I love that I don't need to put my food in a special box or anything for it to be really crispy. If you love fried chicken or fried fish, you'd love this little machine as much as I do!
