This "Look Closer"-themed West Roxbury library poetry contest looks pretty dope.

Hey. Come here. I wanna tell you a story. At the Holy Name/Catholic Memorial dances I attended in my youth I never "grinded" with any boys. After one of the HN/CM dances I did find $211 on the ground when I went to buy some gum at White Hen Pantry. Westie continues its tradition of giving with this all-ages poetry contest courtesy of Friends of the West Roxbury Branch Library.

Some deranged former male stripper sent him some very crazy fan mail. Someone buy De Niro a drink...and you can do just that with this Broadway World promotion commemorating A Bronx Tale: The Musical coming to Boston:
