Page 8 POST-GAZETTE, JULY 26, 2013 Socially Scene Reviewed .... Culture our City; I was on my way to up my technology with the purchase of an iPad when the window of a shop caught my eye. There were pictures of Edgar Allan Poe pasted to the glass. Ones with so much history and said so much. I began to read the flyer for the tours of Poe's travel just across in the Boston Com- mon. I was instantly taken back to my childhood where the passion for writing began and soon after found myself inside telling Pat how as a child I had an obsession with Poe and his books even though I couldn't understand them. There were two locked doors for me to buzz my way through and just as I thought they may be closed the sweetest woman waved to me as if to say, "I will get there soon." I smiled. I was in such awe of all the trin- kets: leather bound books and vintage jewelry. Pat as she introduced herself to me sometime into my venture was telling me the most fas- cinating stories about Poe and the City of Boston. Turns out Bartevian Inc., a non-profit, second-hand shop her family started over a 100 years ago was also the head of the Edgar Allan Poe Society. I wasn't sure what had my attention more, the stories this very able and peppy 90-year-old woman was telling me about her ancestors on the Mayflower or the timeless jewelry. The aura of this classic shop had put me at such ease, I haven't felt peace like that all week. A part of me wanted to purchase e- verything, knowing if I had, oh the compliments I would receive on my one of a kind jewelry. Unfortunately I had to run, yet luckily the lovely Patricia invited me to come back, bring a lunch as she would love for me to visit her. With what the fast pace city has done to my genera- tion it was soothing to enjoy nice conversation and gor- geous handmade jewelry. Bartevian, Inc. (Custom De- signs) 160 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 617-423-0266. On my way looping back to the North End I passed by all three stages set up for the Outside the Box Boston Fes- tival. There were two large ones set up; one at Boston Common Beacon Street that hosted acts like the Lemmon- heads, Buffalo Tom and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones the other was at City Hall Plaza's Main Stage that featured acts like Women of the World and Jenny Dee & the De- elinquents where the event came to a close Sunday. In between each stage were chef demonstrations, kiddy corners, puppet shows and Berklee art perfor- mances throughout the Bos- ton Common. Friday after- noon on my venture home I was lucky to catch the Ankgor Dance Group on the Park Street Stage. They were a very authentic per- formance that drew me in enough to watch the show through our tremendous heat wave over the weekend. I happenned to stroll through again on Saturday and was pulled into a perfor- mance from Echo and Drake yet a little shorter lived with our record highs. There were crowds of people at all of the events despite the heat, so I think it's safe to call "Outside the Box Boston" a success. Sushi Making Cruise .... On August 8m set sail to pre- pare seafood Japanese-style with a sushi-making class aboard Boston Event Guide's Summer Party Cruise.
