Boston Strong

Help yourself, help Boston

Full_boston-strong

In the words of the Boston poet laureate Big Papi, this is our f***ing city

In support of the victims of last week's attacks at the Boston Marathon, and of the law enforcement officers and emergency responders who helped bring the terror to a close, here are some ways to show how much you love our f***ing city.

EAT
Even the strictest vegan would concede that Haru's sushi promotion looks pretty tasty. They'll be donating 100% of sales from two of their signature rolls — the Boston UnCommon (crunchy spicy salmon, tuna, avocado, mango, black tobiko, and gold leaf) and the Back Bay (gold leaf, mango, avocado, tempura flakes, spicy red, and white tuna) — to the One Fund Boston throughout the next month.
Thru May 15. Haru, 55 Huntington Ave., Back Bay (617-536-0770).

DRINK
After last week's events, no one could blame us for needing a stiff drink. Toast to those affected via DrinkOne, a city-wide drink promotion donating 100% of sales of certain TBA drinks to help victims of the Marathon attacks. (Check our Twitter for details on their bar crawl and closing party in May.) If you only have time for one beer, fear not: all sales of Samuel Adams 26.2 beer, brewed in honor of the annual marathon and available around town, will go towards The One Fund Boston.

SHOW YOUR COLORS
We never get tired of our civic pride. You've got your Sox hat, Pats jacket, and now a shirt to show what team means the most: Boston itself. All proceeds from the "Boston Stands At One" T-shirt from Adidas will go towards The One Fund Boston, as will money from sales of the "B Strong" hat from Forty Seven Brand. After all, supporting Boston should never have an offseason.
