Get A Free Iced Tea At Starbucks on Friday
We're in the hottest part of summer right now, and man, tomorrow's gonna be a hot one. Like... seven inches from the midday sun. THAT'S how hot. Wouldn't it be nice if you could cool down with a nice refreshing iced tea, and not have to pay for it at all...
There Are Still Classes Open At Quincy Community Theatre
Your kids are bored right now. It happens right around this time every summer. They've been playing outside, going to the pool, but it's starting to wear thin. They need something new to do. But school doesn't start for another six weeks, so the house could descend into Lord of the Fl…

We're barely into summer vacation and the kids are already driving you insane. You don't know what to do with them. Send them to camp! Well... maybe not, because registration for camp closed months ago. But Summer Movie Camp is up and running at the AMC Showplace 6...
What Was That BOOM Over Quincy?
Still aliens.
At approximately 1:45pm, or possibly 2:00, I wasn't looking at a clock, a mighty boom (not to be confused with British comedy troupe The Mighty Boosh) rocked Quincy, and possibly surrounding areas. I certainly felt it in our Quincy studios, and soon all my Quincy friends on the Facebook…
