They come from miles around to hang with this crowd.  Speedster Sean Duncan of "The Chair City" tearing up the course again with his third consecutive win.  Faster every week, might Sean be angling for a  "beat Sean cash challenge"? We'll see...Dave McKenna of Hudson was not far behind grabbing second place.
Live entertainment tonight courtesy of the newest and most dynamic duo to hit the Worcester Music scene "The Hardiman- Curley Experience" Good stuff from the guys tonight keeping things lively.  Check out other events happening at the Greyhound Pub.
Paul Collyer held court late into the evening lobbying some of the bigwigs of the city.  For those of you who don't know, and if you have ever met him you certainly do know, Paulie is the city of Worcester's biggest cheerleader, :>) and at times the city's biggest basher as well, sometimes both in the same sentence. The big fella wants nothing but the best for the city and he is trying to make things happen. The upcoming Canal Diggers 5k is shaping up to be Collyer's signature event for Central Mass.
In an effort to enhance the quality of life in the Kelley Sq area, a late night vote was taken and the results showed overwhelming support for "park benches" along Water St.  Not exactly a "park" Water St, but someplace to park your rear as you chow on some eats form Widoff's Bakery, Weintraubs Deli or any of the other eating establishments in the Canal District would not be a bad thing.  Things like this don't just happen it's people that make it happen and it ain't gonna happen if people don't speak up and make themselves heard.  So City of Worcester folks that are reading this, and I know there are many, consider us speaking up.
Check out this cool video on youtube.  Why wouldn't you want to come run here? Kelley Sq traffic
And of course for all things Worcester read Worcester Magazine featuring the writings of our newest Monday night regular Scott Zoback.
