Sizzling

Hurtling through Harvard Square on this sizzling Saturday afternoon we were in rapt attention to the hottie next to us. Cool blue shirt, deep crimson shorts, and a magnificently shaved head all served to keep our minds of the heat and instead stay focused on the hottie!

And our HOTT Crew friend Lola Matisse set sail today from Gloucester aboard the Miss Trish II as she embarks on Cape Pond Ice's newest experiment: frozen trans-Atlantic auto shipments! Lola's high performance vehicle is encased in a huge hollow rectangular hunk of ice (Cape Pond Ice says it's the world's largest ice cube made for commercial use!). The exterior and interior of the cube are lined with styrofoam, providing massive insulation and superior auto protection. Lola discovered upon arrival that the New Acting Mayor of Gloucester would be joining her for this month-long maiden voyage! We hope the larder is well stocked and are sure the two of them will have a magnificent time together. We'll give you updates on Lola's voyage to France whenever she communicates with us via satellite uplink.

Fabulous Friday - Swarthy Weather


Mysterious, toned and oh so incredibly handsome, our hottie exudes the mood for love. Look at the fit of his shirt on his well-developed pecs. He's a masterpiece!

Boston Public Market - The Review

Our HOTT Crew decided to visit the Boston Public Market on opening day. It's located on Hanover street by Haymarket Station. We were especially delighted that we'd have the chance to try out Union Square Donuts' new Boston Public Market location. Here are our thoughts about the experience there, whom we think will enjoy it, and what we thought were the high points, mid-points, and low points of Boston's new food market.
We were impressed, after much navigating around, with the selection of locally sourced grass fed beef and other quality meats. The pricing was comparable to similar meats at the Whole Foods down the street. Our HOTT Crew likes grass fed beef and highly recommends it.
The thing we consistently noticed about the Boston Public Market was that it's a chick destination. Apparently, if you're a woman within 6 months (plus or minus) of being 30 years old the Boston Public Market is the place to be! Wall to wall women. Aged 30. Salivating over ice cream or beeswax candles. Outside the women were agog and constantly proclaiming the market to be "awesome!". Did we mention how many women were at the Boston Public Market? A LOT!
GB is fond of maple syrup and appreciated the gallon sized jugs (he goes through 3+ gallons a year of maple syrup). 
A fair number of locally crafted beers, bottled and in growlers, were available. As were wines and spirits from New England. Beers seemed to be the main focus, although we didn't seem to find any that aren't already at our corner liquor stores in Cambridge. We did notice that Cape Ann Brewery beers, which aren't available in our neighborhood, are also not available at Boston Public Market.

Overall, we think Boston Public Market is ideal for 30 year old women. We're not really sure gay men in the South End or Cambridge will find it worth their while to venture over to Haymarket to shop here.

The product we liked best was the wide selection of locally raised organic grass feed meat and poultry. That's a big plus

We liked the vegetable and fruit selections, but noticed that the vendors were not really up to speed about their own products. For example, as we grew up in Georgia and South Carolina we're very familiar with the many different varieties of peaches. And we're accustomed to growers being able to identify the variety of peach they offer on sale (i.e, Springcrest, Fairhaven, Georgia Belle, Rubyprince, etc). This is the first time we've had a peach grower tell us the variety of peach he's selling is "yellow". Our HOTT Crew thinks there's room for improvement in the produce department!

Our most disappointing experience was with Union Square Donuts. They began to run out of donuts after being open only 2 hours! Although this seems to be the norm at their quaint and quirky Somerville store front, our expectation is that their storefront in Boston Public Market would be kept in stock. We're not sure why they expected a grand opening day to be slow. We think they should start making donuts.

In general our HOTT Crew thinks you may find it interesting to stop by the Boston Public Market and experience it for yourself. We'd be interested to hear if you think it's better suited for tourists or for locals, as we're not quite sure for whom it's designed.

Boston Public Market

As our HOTT Crew traveled to the Grand Opening of the Boston Public Market (opening today!) we encountered this tall, lean and very handsome gentleman. We wished he disembarked with us!

We'll give you a full rundown of the Boston Public Market after we finish our tour with Mayor Marty Walsh. In the meantime, stay cool!

Shine Like the Sun

We encountered this smoking' hot hottie on our commute this morning as the temperature soared into the scorched zone. It's as hot as a day at the Los Angeles Olympics. And we know how hot that is as we actually worked with the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles!

Such a moving and beautiful visage on our handsome man. Reminds us of the moving and beautiful last verses of the Olympic Hymn:

Oh flame, eternal in your firmament so bright
Illuminate us with your everlasting light
That grace and beauty and magnificence

Shine like the sun
Blazing above
Bestow on us the wondrous prize of honor, truth and love!

Double Tuesday - Citius, Altius, Fortius

Faster, higher, stronger (Citius, Altius, Fortius) is the Olympic motto, and a hottie duo of Olympic quality greeted us yesterday on our commute home. The definition of hottie on the left's thighs make us think he may be a runner or a cyclist, while hottie on the right has the perfect build for a gymnast. And look how happy they are knowing they'll get to go see the 2024 Olympic Games in Los Angeles!

75% of Los Angelenos support hosting the 2024 Olympics in LA, so we can't help but get onboard, too! Besides, they already have most of the infrastructure (and much newer mass transit systems than us) for the games.  We just hope #LA2024 doesn't use the motto Obmutui, et Silui Amplius like the #Boston2024 organizers did.

So join us in celebrating Los Angeles with this fun video below!
