The Roslindale Night Out celebration of neighborhood watches in Adams Park this evening featured dancers (from Andean to Irish step), free food, lots of people and this lady making balloon animals.
There's a new store-closing sign on the front of Jersusalem Trading on Poplar Street, which was the square's only source for beds and unusual living-room accoutrements. Anybody know what's taking its place?
We just walked through Roslindale Square and there are so many gypsy moths you have to keep your mouth closed to avoid one flying in. Reports are coming in of equally gross conditions in South Boston and Dorchester.
Josh Deering reports his flight into Logan last night had to sit 20 or 25 minutes at the gate to clear a swarm of the moths to connect the jetway.
The FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force has released a photo of the man they say tried to hold up the Bank of America branch at 29 Corinth St. in Roslindale Square the afternoon of May 27.
If he looks familiar, contact the task force at 617-742-5533. And while you're at it, ask about the Mass Most Wanted TIP Program - there could be a reward in it for you.

At a ceremony at which kids thanked the firefighters of Ladder 16 and Engine 53 in Roslindale for keeping the fire from spreading, officials praised the kids for their reaction to the fire - they raised $277.45 in a lemon-aid sale - and parents and local businesses, who have so far kicked in more than $60,000.

In recent weeks, workers have been gutting and renovating the space.
A concerned, and probably disgusted, citizen requested a cleanup around 1 p.m. at the Roslindale Village commuter-rail stop:

You don't often see people lining up for anything in Roslindale Square, but as roving UHub photographer Chris Dagdigian found, an Exodus Bagels pop-up at Redd's in Rozzie this morning brought out the bagel-starved Roslindalians:
"Hope this encourages them to open a storefront," he says.
Adam Kessel reports that Exodus Bagels will be doing some pop-up bagel sales at Redd's in Rozzie on Washington Street this Saturday morning. You may recall how last month, the Chubby Chickpea did several shakshuka Israeli brunches at 7 Star Bistro. Is a deli popup far behind?

WalkUp Roslindale is hosting screenings of Boston-related movies, some in people's homes, over the next couple of months:
Sadly, the historic Rialto Theatre disappeared decades ago, leaving only the adjacent Rialto Barbership behind, but we are committed to revival.

Ultimately, we aim to identify a permanent comfortable space for high quality community film watching and discussion, but thereâ€™s no time like the present to get the ball (or film) rolling.
