Seymore Green on Poplar Street in Roslindale Square (or is that Roslindale Village?) has figured out a way around the perpetual debate over whether the neighborhood's nickname is spelled Rozzie, Rozzi or Rossi - T-shirts and hoodies that read:
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Can't we all just get along?
I like this. It solves a problem, because all of the variations have something wrong with them.
What do you prefer?
I'm on Team Rozzie
And also Team Roslindale Square, but not to the point of looking down my nose at anybody else.
I grew up on Rozzie / Rozzie
I grew up on Rozzie / Rozzie Sq.
I also call the arboretum "the Arbs", which I understand is weird.
What's weird about that?
And unlike our daughter, I'm not even a Rozzie rat!
I've been Rozzie square for a
I've been Rozzie square for a while now and call it the Arbs too.
Musta sold out-- All I see
Musta sold out-- All I see are items saying "Paris London Hong Kong Roslindale." Which is also fun.
Wait there's an Au Bon Pain
In Roslindale now?
(Also we've gone from the flagship local pastry shop chain in Boston being ABP to Flour/Tatte and I'm okay with that. I mean, flagship excluding Dunks, obvi.)
No Urban Pain here
We don't even have as many bakeries as we used to (although Fornax remains the go-to place for bread, and I've heard only good things about Weesh, although they're still not open for walk-in business).
I think he may not have added it to the online store yet
He just posted about it on the Keep Roslindale Facebook group today.
Hello just wanted to let you know the Rozzie Rozzi Rossie Tshirt is available
is a funny dude. Support that local business.
What's in a name?
It's always been aka Rozzie. And it's Roslindale Square. Not the renamed to be marketable Roslindale Village.
Let the shaming begin.
Is ROZZY wrong?
I didn't see ROZZY on the list. Is that not even an option?
While noting that I have no standing on the issue,
I'd choose ROZZIE first, then ROZZY. The other ones just look wrong to me.
Adams Corner checking in!
Spent a lot of time in Rozzie back in the day i got there thru the Square!
Coming from Adams Corner (and still do!)
Where are these supposed Villages?
Just don't write it down
Then everyone can agree.
