Boston is buzzing again

BOSTON — It’s the last weekend before all remaining COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted in Massachusetts, and Boston is already buzzing as more venues continue to re-open.

On Friday night, fans grabbed a bite to eat in the North End and filed into TD Garden to watch the Bruins play Game 4 of the playoffs.

The Lawn on D, a popular venue in the Seaport, opened for the first time on Thursday and brought back live music Friday night.

“This is so nice, we’ve definitely been waiting for things to start reopening and everything,” said Alexa Sullivan of Westford. “With everybody getting vaccinated, you can just see people feel more comfortable just being outside in general.”

“It seems kind of normal, I mean, there’s a line,” said Patrick Garrity of Londonderry, New Hampshire.

According to Regional Director of Rebel Restaurants, which manages Lawn on D, minus some staffing shortages the venue is ready to open next weekend.

“There’s quite a buzz around which is great to see,” said David Doyle. “We’ve added a good amount of staff this week and we’re going to continue hiring this week and train. I think we’re definitely getting there.”

Massachusetts is slated to lift all remaining restrictions on May 29, and pull back the Commonwealth’s face covering order.
