Ringing in 2011

New Year’s Eve was a big win for restaurant, café and shop owners of every kind in the North End.

The North End was host to large and boisterous crowds as the New Year’s Eve partying got underway.

Overall, North End retailers said it was a very good year in 2010.

If the hearty celebration on New Year’s Eve in the neighborhood indicates what kind of year it is going to be, then everything is going to be OK.

New Years Eve comes and New Years Eve goes.

There is always a bit of nuance to them each year when they occur.

The heartiness of New Years Eve 2010 we believe sets the stage for a healthier economy in 2011.

Let’s hope for that – and lets work for it, too.
