Upon learning July 6th that they had won the Boston Magazine and Amstel Light-sponsored People’s Choice Best Burger in Boston competition, The Fireplace’s chef-owner Jim Solomon and his staff had to move “pretty fast” (according to manager, Jamie Tober) to organize the celebratory Burger Bash.
It was a very tight competition with almost 10,000 votes cast, but if you’ve ever eaten at The Fireplace Restaurant in Brookline Village, the results were no surprise. This month, the local favorite was named ‘The People's Choice for the Best Burger in Boston’ in an online contest sponsored by Boston Magazine and Amstel Light.

It was also the first time the charity had been part of this event, begun in 2006 by the Brookline Chamber of Commerce.

In a town where interacting with town members, neighbors and friends, as well involvement in the arts, are paramount, an organization that represents this ethos extremely well is the Coolidge Corner Community Chorus. Led by the dynamic, witty and highly good-natured conductor Lee Colby Wilson, the group performs at many Brookline events and venues throughout the season (Fall to early Summer), including the Coolidge Corner First Light Festival in November and at senior housing. I am a past member of the CCCC and can attest to the fun and joy of these performances.
Memorial Day will be commemorated in Brookline Monday, May 28 in a series of programs coordinated by the Town, the Department Of Veterans’ Services, American Legion Post 11, Veterans Of Foreign Wars and the Brookline Allied Veterans.
