Hyperlapse Hottie

Of course we had to try out the new Hyperlapse App on a hottie on the move, and what a gorgeous hottie he is! From the well-fitted long-sleeved athletic T-shirt to the moving scenery out the window, it was a beautiful view from our position in the train!
And our HOTT Crew had a lovely afternoon sailing around Cape Ann and viewing the tall ships in the harbor for the Schooner Festival. Above is a view of Stella the Sea dog as we motored in the harbor entrance.

V-Necked Wonder

A man needs a special physique to maximize the effect of a V-necked T-shirt, and this hottie has it! Just look at those pecs and biceps and... oh my, our eyes are wandering! And the turquoise color of the T-shirt is exemplary. We love men who love color!

Our HOTT Crew is off early this morning for Cape Ann for a yachting adventure with our friends TJ & Maxx. We hope to have lots of pics to share with you!

Fabulous Friday - Simplexity

Today's hottie shows the complementary relationship between complexity and simplicity. It's called Simplexity, and our hottie shows how a simple interface (fashion selection) provides an improvement on what can be a complex task (trying to dress fashionably).

What we really like about this hottie's clothes choices are the Panama Hat and the flat-fronted khaki pants. Both fashionably understated and simple, classic selections creating a complex ensemble.

And our hottie shows that the Panama Hat is in and the Trilby Hat is out of fashion! What's the difference? Below left is a Panama Hat and below right is a Trilby Hat (these are stock photos, by the way).
The Panama Hat on the left is what Indiana Jones, Sean Connery, Johnny Depp, and our T Hottie wear. The Trilby Hat on the right is worn by drama club students performing in High School Musical and lonely, sad-puppy men in Ptown.

When selecting a hat always go for the Panama!

By the way, the book our hottie is reading is Simplexity!

National Bow Tie Day!

In celebration of #NationalBowTieDay @BeauTiesGuy (Yes our HOTT Crew is all bedecked in ties from Beau Ties LTD) we thought we'd offer this Throwback Thursday of handsome gentlemen wearing bow ties on the T! And we should mention that Beau Ties LTD of Vermont is the Official Bow Tie Purveyor for Hotties on the T!

Above is the dapper fellow from our post When the Saints Go Marching In on May 29, 2014.

One of our more exciting finds was this fashionable gentleman that we followed from the Blue Line all the way onto our plane which was taking us to Rome!

Learn more about this gentleman in our post Fabulous Friday - The Last Temptation from February 22, 2013.

Men who wear bow ties have a confident aura. Happy yet contemplative demeanors. And they're so much fun! Like this bow tied hottie above from our post Bow Tie Day! on January 27, 2013.

And you can tell we're bow tie aficionados of bow ties by our post exactly a year ago... celebrating National Bow Tie Day. 

You can see more of this handsome man at our post National Bow Tie Day!

Happy National Bow Tie Day from The HOTT Crew!

Boat Shoe Ballet

Men in Sperry Topsiders. Quintessentially Summer. And we always have the desire to invite fine gentlemen such as our hottie above to go boating with us on the yacht of our friends TJ & Maxx. And if one is going to pose wearing topsider boat shoes then our hottie above has it down pat. Legs insouciantly crossed. A luxurious lean back whilst using the colored tile wall as a prop. A magnificent ballet.

Hotties on the Sea!

Boston Harbor Cruises (@cruiseBHC) is the Official Fast Ferry of Hotties on the T and the views never disappoint! Above a most adorable hottie couple on the trip over to Provincetown.
We like to sit in a booth and capture the view out the back of the ferry as we speed across the open ocean on our way to Provincetown.
This stunningly handsome gentleman sat in the booth next to us on our way back to Boston. GB and FT want one of him... for each of them!
When our HOTT Crew isn't entertaining friends at the HOTT Condo in Provincetown we dine at the Official Provincetown Restaurant of Hotties on the T: Sal's Place! We like to dine "on the rail" and be waited on by our charming and adorable waiter named "Q". Here's a dessert plate we ordered just after GB managed to break a full wine glass (Cline Ancient Vine Zinfandel) and completely coat his clothes with red wine, hence the single wine glass. We're very saddened to hear that Sal's is up for sale as the food is superb.

We've been inundated with requests for the recipes we featured yesterday. We apologize for forgetting to include them in the post. You can view these delicious dishes and their complete recipes here:

Our Summer Recipes

Fettucine with Shrimp, Cherry Tomatoes and Basil
Total Time: 30 minutes Serves: 4 (We double the recipe for 8)
  • 2½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 8 large basil leaves, roughly torn
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound dried fettuccine
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, toss tomatoes with basil and season with salt to taste. Cover bowl and set aside for at least 10 minutes.
2. Add fettuccine to boiling water and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Remove ½ cup cooking water and set aside. Drain pasta in a colander and toss dry.
3. Meanwhile, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil and garlic in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Add shrimp to pan and sear, flipping once, until just cooked, about 4 minutes total. Transfer shrimp to a cutting board and chop into bite-size pieces. Discard garlic and reserve drippings in pan.
4. Add shrimp and pan drippings along with cooked pasta and remaining olive oil to bowl with tomatoes. Toss together until noodles are coated in sauce, adding splashes of reserved cooking water as necessary. Season with additional olive oil and salt to taste. Set aside pasta and let flavors meld at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve at room temperature.
Aperol-Citrus Granita
Active Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 3¼ hours (includes freezing) Serves: 4
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed grape-fruit juice
  • ½ cup Aperol
  • ½ cup vanilla sugar or regular sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon orange bitters or more to taste
  • Finely grated orange zest, for garnish (optional)
1. Place all ingredients in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Cover dish with plastic wrap and place in freezer. Use a fork to stir mixture every 30 minutes, scraping edges and breaking up any ice chunks, until granita is frozen, about 3 hours total.
2. To serve, scoop granita into chilled serving glasses. Garnish with orange zest, if desired.

Summer - HOTT Crew Style

Our HOTT Crew is in Ptown this weekend, and how do we entertain weekend guests? Below is a typical menu for when we host friends in Provincetown. Recipes for the different courses are at the end of the post. We hope you'll try these with your friends this summer!

Above - Katama Oysters from Martha's Vineyard (left) and South Bay Blonde Oysters from Duxbury, MA

Our HOTT Crew adores entertaining in Provincetown. And nothing sets a more relaxing mood for our guests than ample platters of fresh Massachusetts oysters! The clean, voluptuous taste of the Katamas and the meaty and briny South Bay Blondes pair amazingly well with a deeply chilled Sauterne Coutet wine (pictured below). We first discovered South Bay Blonde's at Harvard Gardens in Boston!

Above: Sauterne Coutet (left) and Vinho Tinto (right) from Portugal 

The sweetness of a deeply chilled Sauterne Coutet is perfect with our Massachusetts oysters and the Vinho Tinto (Kevin at The Abbey in Cambridge told us about this wine!) is a spectacular pairing with our Fettuccine with Shrimp, Sherry Tomatoes and Basil (below).

Above: Our legendary Fettuccine with Shrimp, Cherry Tomatoes and Basil.

When GB and FT prepare to host an evening with the HOTT Crew and friends they like to serve dinner on the heirloom picnic table on their spacious deck to take advantage of the spectacular harbor views and gentle summer evening breezes. They always serve this pasta cold to create a summery atmosphere. The marriage of al dente fettuccine with sautéed wild shrimp and seasoned tomatoes is heavenly!

Above - Aperol and Citrus Granita

We enjoy a Vesper Martini after dinner, and what goes better with the hints of orange in a Vesper than an Aperol and Citrus Granita! The ice cold granular dessert is a perfect way to end a meal, and the perfect way to begin an evening!

Our recipes are on our next post. Click HERE to view them!

Our Most Popular Hottie!

He's bold, he's beautiful, and he has a plethora of friends around the world. He's BC Boy, and he's our most popular hottie of all time. Ever since he first graced the cover of our blog on May 6, 2012 no hottie has come close to the number of visits our delightful gent has received.

Thank you, BC Boy, for making our blog so much fun!

Top 5 Hotties!

Our Fifth Most Popular Hottie is the duo that started our Double Tuesday genre on April 3, 2012!

We like our men smart and nice, and the hottie above from Literati, Literahottie fit the bill! He's a DJ, has a keen interest in Neuropsychology, and is our fourth most popular hottie!

Couples are so cute! Especially the couple above who are currently third most popular post. Hence our title for the post Double Tuesday - Aren't They Cute! from December 4, 2012.

Hitting Number 2 in our Top 10 Hotties is Tall Boy from March 25, 2012. Not only a record breaker in visits to his post, but we received tons of email from his friends telling us there's no nicer person around than him!

Come back shortly for our Number 1 Hottie of All Time!

Comic Book Capers Starring BosGuy!

It's a celebration with @BosGuy ! BosGuy and Sergio are in the Provincetown Carnival Parade today (right now to be precise) and since the theme of the parade is Comic Book Capers we figured we'd celebrate with a mosaic pic of the happy duo in comic book attire and underwear on the T!

Celebration Countdown of Top 10 Hotties!

Above is our Number 10 Hottie who appeared in Fabulous Friday - Harvard Meets Carhartt on January 31, 2014. This striking gentleman is a Harvard University student, yet draws a large number of visitors from Grinnell College in Iowa. In all of our mosaic pics you can enlarge the photo to see the 1,027 hotties who have appeared on our blog. The original post is here:

Above is our Number 9 hottie who appeared in He's So Into Us on March 27, 2014. He utterly captivated our audience, and understandably so! His eyes pierce right into our soul! The original post is here:

Next up is our Number 8 hottie above who appeared in Fabulous Friday –D’un certain âge on June 21, 2013. It's not often that a man inspires us the way this handsome gent does. You can check our post to see exactly where we went with him:
Our Number 7 hottie appeared in Fresh on the Train on March 31, 2012. Just look at that face! You can view his post at

Everyone should have their own snow bunny, and we found ours with our Number 6 hottie who appeared, naturally, in our Fabulous Friday - Snow Bunny! post on March 8, 2013. You can view that post at:

Come back shortly for our Top 5 hotties of all time!

The Celebrations Begin

As we approach our quarter of a millionth visitor we thought we'd celebrate by featuring our most popular hotties, but in mosaics of all the hotties featured on our blog in the past 2 1/2 years. That's 1,027 hot, handsome, hunky men!

Above is our hottie from "Take Me Away" on January 20, 2013. We love handsome men who make us daydream! And this very kind and sweet man has even featured us on his podcast! You can see the original pic here:

And this hottie was a fabulous find on a snowy day. Apparently he's quite popular in healthcare circles throughout the country! A real gem of a gentleman. You can find his original pic on our post here:

We'll be back shortly to feature our new Top 10 Hotties of All Time.

Thank you for visiting us!

Civitati Parandi

Sometime our hot crew goes Latin. We can't help it. It's that Prep School background. And our hottie above so easily wears a simple, yet classic prep outfit. Somewhat worn jeans, dress shirt, and khaki sling satchel. He just looks to comfortably good!

And Civitati Parandi means "preparing for citizenship". We think it's appropriate as our hottie has that public service personna about him!

Double Tuesday - Lean into Summer

Our hottie duo shows that summer is still in full swing. Never-out-of-style dark khakis and multi-colored checked button-down shirt are the favorite of hottie on the left, while hottie on the right goes for the color of the season for shorts: salmon, and tops it off with a V-necked white T-shirt. Happy Summer!

Sometimes we manage to capture a hottie in an unexpectedly stunning setting. A simple subway station is illuminated with hues of pinks and blues, and our hottie manages to bathe himself in the surrounding colors, perfectly posed with his very nice road bike (we love men on bikes!). Simple, tasteful and athletic. The perfect man.

And, yes, watercoloratura is a word. We know because we made it up!

The Last Fish Tale

What a perfect find. Our HOTT Crew ventured up to Gloucester for the Waterfront Festival, and the Block Party, too, and we just happened to be sitting across from this strikingly handsome fellow reading Mark Kurlansky's The Last Fish Tale. It's a riveting history of Gloucester, America's oldest working seaport. We're glad to see our hottie as fascinated with Gloucester as we are!

And below is a video of our hottie, too. We just couldn't keep our eyes off of him!

Fabulous Friday - Miami Nice

Our hottie may be wearing a Miami Vice T-shirt (and quite well, we should add) but we think he's Miami Nice. Just look at how his buff torso fills out the shirt and makes a billboard out of the tropical headline banner across his chest. And those calves! Calves worthy of a professional cyclist! We just wish we could also see him in spandex cycling attire!

Banana Republic

Sometimes a hottie is a perfect fit for a particular brand of clothes. And our hottie today has wisely chosen to immerse himself in the Banana Republic experience. It's a very flattering look, perfect for his tall trim frame and whispish demeanor.

Starting at the top we see how handsome our hottie is in his Banana Republic Slim-Fit Signature Chest-Stripe Pique Polo. Quite a stunning fit!

The Banana Republic Heritage Black Jeans compliment his polo shirt so well, and fit just right!

And descending to the lower level we discover our fashionable gentleman's navy Banana Republic Logan Sneakers. Adds a touch of youthfulness whilst maintaining an attractive and stylish appearance.

Well done, Hottie!

Double Tuesday - Body Double

We found the long lost twin brother of @BosGuy !!! But before we get to that we want to showcase our laid-back hottie double for today. Casual is the operative word here, yet notice how they still manage to make rumpled look nice. Cool, calm and collected is how we like our men... and these two handsome gents got our attention!

And now for BosGuy's twin brother...
While having cocktails on the deck in Provincetown we remarked that the President (above right) in Netflix's House of Cards bears an uncanny resemblance to BosGuy (below left). It's as if they are twin brothers! How hot is that!?!?

Michael Gill is the actor who plays the President in House of Cards (his wife in real life plays the Secretary of State). Definitely an actor we'd like to see more often.

And do check out BosGuy's blog at
