Seaport ferries get a boost

You can’t blame commuters for skipping the new ferry between North Station and the Seaport — not when it costs $12, plus a $1 ticketing fee, to travel 1.5 miles.

But $5 for a one-way ticket, fee included? Now we’re talking.

The Seaport companies that fund the ferry — it’s essentially a service for their employees — unveiled the more reasonable price for the public on Tuesday, taking effect April 1.

Java-ganza! Baristas converge on Boston to compete in world championship

Harry Mole’s game face was on. Dressed to compete in a brown leather apron with metal spikes on the strap around his neck, he had a punk rock look as he stood before a panel of judges to show off his barista skills. His goal: to make them the best espresso drink they’d ever tasted.

Testimonial

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”

- John Hoffman, Fishing Academy, Brighton, MA

Making mark at Seafood Expo

BOSTON — By any conjurable measure, things seemed to be going pretty well for the sons and daughters of Gloucester as the second day the cavernous Seafood Expo North America approached high noon on Monday.

The traffic by and around the Gloucester Fresh booth was strong and folks appeared interested in what America’s oldest commercial seaport had to offer beyond the 2,000 lobster arancini that chef Todd Snopkowski and his SnapChef staff handrolled and handed out for the asking.

“We’ve really had a really good two days,” said Sal Di Stefano, the city’s director of economic development. “On Sunday, we set a record for the number of scanned badges of the people that visited the booth. I’d say at least 150. Of course, my policy is if they take a sample, they’re getting scanned.”

"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."
