The City that Always Sleeps has a mayoral candidate who plans to stay up all night

Mike Ross plans to officially, really, no, this time he means it, kick off his campaign for mayor tomorrow by staying up for 25 hours.

"I will be bringing my campaign to the leaders and neighbors of communities across Boston to focus on the issues that mater to them and learn from their own work to help me bring the best ideas and solutions to City Hall," Ross says in a statement. And, indeed, his daylight schedule is filled with grip-and-grin meetings with advocacy groups, his supporters, Bruins fans and the like. But we're no New York, so what's Ross going to do when the DPW officially rolls up our sidewalks?

From 11:30 p.m. until 2 a.m., he plans to ride around in a cruiser in District B-3 (Mattapan and Dorchester). At 2:30, he hitches a ride with an EMS lieutenant. 4 a.m.? That's coffee-break time at Victoria's Diner. 15 minutes later, he gets himself over to City Fresh Food in Roxbury to chat with workers about Belgian endive economic development, followed by a 5:30 a.m. run with the Dorchester Swarm Team at the Savin Hill Playground. At 7:15 a.m., he heads to Peters Park to talk to early-rising dog owners and, who knows, maybe their dogs? At 8 a.m., he brings muffins and coffee to firefighters at the Fairmount Avenue fire station in Hyde Park.

The record for intentionally going without sleep is 264 hours or 11 days. A rare disease keeps some people from falling asleep, and then they die.

Ross's house blend

By on

Don't say I never get answers to the important questions: After reading the press release on Mike McNoDozy, I wondered what sort of coffee the normally gets.

A staffer replies his preferred coffee comes from either Mike's Donuts (Mission Hill) or Haley House (Roxbury).
