It was a long, arduous journey but we made it. I am proud to say that I was there to bear witness. Now it's time for the next phase of this fantastic voyage to begin. Let's not stop the hard work that brought us to this point. Rather, let us redouble our efforts!
That said, let's get back to what's going down in beatown. It's been awhile since I've made an update and I'm pleased to say that a lot has been jumping off. Artists, promoters, DJs, and nightlife enthusiasts have been putting in a lot of hard work to make Boston a better place and it's paying off. A debt of gratitude for this is owed to the Greatest Minds participants who have been making it happen for months now. You too can put your head together with some great minds tonight!
