Charlie Card Discounts

25 Jul

Did you know that just by showing your Charlie Card to places around Boston you can receive a discount? As many of you know there are two ways to pay for a T ride, either purchase Charlie Tickets ($2.00 per ride) or ask at a booth for a Charlie Card ($1.75 per ride) and continue to refill and reuse it.  The ride is already cheaper when you use a Charlie Card, and now you can get deals at other places!

Check out this link for where the discounts are. Like 10% off at Ben & Jerry’s in Harvard Square, or $2.00 off a ticket to Franklin Park Zoo!

Stormy Monday

18 Jul

Looking outside the window today makes it seem like it is about to pour at any minute.  Most people want to stay inside on rainy days like these.  While you are indoors, why not brush up on some funny state facts. For instance, did you know that the ice-cream cone is the state food of Missouri? Or that the pelican is the state bird of Louisiana? How about Idaho having a hotel in the shape of a dog?

Here are some links with state information to keep you entertained when stuck inside today:
