Last week I attended the Boston Young Entrepreneur’s meeting at City Hall, where I met quite a few interesting people. Amongst the group was Tyler Balliet, CEO and Publisher of The Second Glass, an unpretentious wine magazine. For my Bostonian readers, you may recognize The Second Glass from the half-page article in the August 22nd edition of the Boston Metro. For all you college students out there, almost all of the wines featured in The Second Glass are very reasonably priced (under $15), with the sole exception being the wine porn feature, which showcases a ridiculously priced (and ridiculously good) wine. The latest edition features a Domaine Coche-Dury 2001 vintage, which comes in at $3,000 a bottle!
I actually ran into Tyler and Morgan First of Map Boston, a guide to the City of Boston, Friday night while I was on a four mile trek from The Greatest Bar on Friend Street next to the TD Banknorth Garden to my house in Dorchester. Boston is a city where it’s easy to run into people you know on the streets, but complex enough where guides like MAP Boston come in handy even for seasoned Bostonians, which is one of the many things I love about this city. Congratulations to Tyler for the Boston Metro article and to Morgan for the upcoming release of the 2007-2008 edition of MAP Boston. To my Bostonian readers, check out MAP Boston at its release party on September 12th at The Otherside Cafe on 407 Newbury street, starting at 9pm and ending at midnight.
