    Somewhat true. What do you think?



    A guide to help you visit Boston



    Bawstin (Boston)

    For those of you who have never been to "Bawstin", this is a good guideline. I hope you will consider coming to "Beantown" in the ear
    Future. For those who call New England home, this is just plain great!





    Information on Boston and the surrounding area:

    There's no school on School Street, no court on Court Street, no dock on Dock Square, no water on Water Street.




    Back Bay streets are in alphabetical "oddah": ! Arlington, Berkeley, Clarendon, Dartmouth, etc.
    So are South Boston streets: A, B, C, D, etc.




    If the streets are named after trees (e.g. Walnut, Chestnut, Cedar), you're on Beacon Hill.



    If they're named after poets, you're in Wellesley.
    Massachusetts Ave is Mass Ave;




    Commonwealth Ave is Comm Ave;



    South Boston is Southie.



    The South End is the South End.
    East Boston is Eastie




    The North End is east of the former West End.



    The West End and Scollay Square are no more; a guy named Rappaport got rid of them one night.



    Roxbury is The Burry, Jamaica Plain is J.P.

    How to say these Massachusetts city names correctly:
    **Say it wrong, be shunned**
    Worcester: Wuhsta (or Wistah)
    Gloucester : Glawsta
    Leicester Lesta
    Woburn: Wooban
    Dedham : Dead-um
    Revere: Re-vee-ah
    Quincy: Quinzee
    Tewksbury : Tooks berry
    Leominster : Lemin-sta
    Peabody: Pee-ba-dee
    Waltham : Walth-ham
    Chatham: Chaddum
    Samoset: Sam-oh-set or Sum-aw-set but nevah Summerset!





    Definitions:
    Frappes have ice cream, milkshakes don't.
    If it's fizzy and flavored, it's tonic.
    Soda is CLUB SODA.
    "Pop" is Dad.
    When we want Tonic WATER, we will ask for Tonic WATER.
    The smalles t beer is a pint.
    Scrod is whatever they tell you it is, usually fish. If you paid more than $6/pound, you got scrod.
    It's not a water fountain; it's a bubblah.
    It's not a trashcan; it's a barrel.
    It's not a spucky, a hero or grinder,... it's a sub.
    It's not a shopping cart; it's a carriage.
    It's not a purse; it's a pockabook.
    They're not franks; they're haht dahgs; Franks are money in Switzahland.

    Police don't drive patrol units or black and whites they drive a "crooza".
    If you take the bus, your on the "looza crooza". It's not a rubber band,
    it's an elastic. It's not a traffic circle, it's a rotary. "Going to the
    Islands" means Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket.

    The Sox = The Red Sox
    The C's = The Celtics
    The B's = The Bruins




    The Pats = The Patriots




    Things not to do:

    Don't pahk your cah in Hahvid Yahd .. They'll tow it to Meffa (Medford) or
    Summahville (Somerville).
    Don't sleep on the Common. (Boston Common)
    Don't wear Orange in Southie on St. Patrick's Day.

    Things you should know:

    There are two State Houses, two City Halls, two courthouses, two Hancock
    Buildings (one old, one new for each).

    The colored lights on top the old Hancock tell the weatha':
    "Solid blue, clear view...."
    "Flashing blue, clouds due....."
    "Solid red, rain ahead...."
    "Flashing red, snow instead...." - (except in summer; flashing red means
    The Red Sox game was rained out)

    Route 128 is also I-95 south. It's also I-93 north and in spots it's also Route 3 and Route 1.
    Most people live here all their life and still don't know what the hell is going on with this one.

    The underground train is not a subway. It's the "T", and it doesn't run all night (fah chrysakes, this ain't Noo Yawk).
    Order the "cold tea" in China Town after 2:00 am, and you'll get a kettle full of beer.

    Bostonians... Think that it's their God-given right to cut off someone in traffic.
    Bostonians...think that there are only 25 letters in the alphabet (no R's - except in "idea").
    Bostonians.. .think that three straight days of 90+ temperatures is a heat wave.
    Bostonians...refer to six inches of snow as a "dusting."
    Bostonians...always "bang a left" as soon as the light turns green, and oncoming traffic always expects it.
    Bostonians...believe that using your turn signal is a sign of weakness.
    Bostonians...think that 63-degree ocean water is warm.
    Bostonians...think Rhode Island accents are annoying.

    Send this to your friends who don't live in Boston (and the Ones who do!!)

    Hahah good thing you weren't there (neither was I). I heard A LOT of people left to go somewhere and actually watched it on TV. Best seats were at 1st and 3rd base. People barely could see anything. Being there for the experience must be nice but to actually see the game...you're better off watching on TV.

    Did you see the game? That was by far the worst performance for someone singing that song. I don't think the Bruins fans were too big of a fan of that going on. :p
