Shop and Eat on Mass Ave

Every two or three years we publish and distribute a map of businesses along Mass Ave, from the Cambridge Common to the Arlington Line. We will discuss this year’s project, solicit suggestions, establish a schedule, and make a plan for distributing the maps.

Ears to the Ground

Bring your own announcements and questions about events in and around Porter Square.
