The Tasty Diner of Harvard Square

THE TASTY DINER of HARVARD SQUARE – A film by Federico Muchnik from Federico Muchnik on Vimeo.

An interesting documentary if you have spent some time in Harvard Square which may bring back some memories for some. I started working in the square a few years after the Tasty closed. A CVS is now in that location. The diner that some people mentioned that they still go to in the documentary, Leo’s Place, is now out of the square also.

Touching History tells the story of the re-development of Harvard Square’s Read Block. The film combines interviews with archival materials to take the viewer through the hows and whys of the project, introducing audiences to the necessary, sometimes polemical, but always compelling relationships that exist between the public and the private sector. At the film’s core is the inevitable push and pull between conservation and development

Some Awful People Have Taken to Handing These out to People Public Transportation

Jerks with nothing better to do.

A commuter was left in shock after she was given a card by a stranger calling her a ‘fat, ugly human.’

British Transport Police are investigating after Kara Florish, 30, of Southend-on-Sea, Essex, shared a picture of the card she was given by someone working for ‘Overweight Haters Ltd’, on Facebook.

In a second alleged incident, another man told how he witnessed a female commuter being left in tears after being handed the card on a train at Oxford Circus by a ‘smartly-dressed hipster’.

Since details of the campaign were shared online, a spokesman for the BTP said they had received two separate complaints from members of the public who claim to have been victims of the nasty trend.
