Flatblack Ashmont Station Extends Hours

Have you ever walked out of the Ashmont T station after work and craved a coffee from Flatblack, but when you walked over to the door it was closed? Well, the folks at Flatblack have a solution for you! They are extending their hours to 7 pm. Now you can sip a latte or munch on a ham and cheese croissant from 6 am to 7 pm weekdays (but still only 7-2 on Saturdays) making this an even better place to meet up friends or study in the early evening (and perhaps they will play some Radiohead over the stereo system making it near perfect).

To add to this, the Dorchester Reporter says that Flatblack is preparing the permits to have outdoor patio seating at their Ashmont location to give it a "European touch." Exciting!

Located in Peabody Square on Dorchester Ave. Just west of the Ashmont T stop.

Dorchester Day is Here Again!

It is time once again for Dorchester Day, when the neighborhood celebrates its very own holiday. If you are new to the neighborhood then get ready for one heck of a party commemorating the founding of Dorchester as a town in 1630 (Dorchester was later annexed to Boston in 1870). The parade starts Sunday, June 6th at 1 pm in Lower Mills and heads north up Dorchester Avenue, ending at Columbia Road.

As always the Dorchester Reporter is your best bet for parade information and coverage. See you at the Dot Day parade!
