Serious Salient Square Sage Sense for Seniors

Wooster Square's World Widens for locals, off on Serious Studying to Traveling Home or abroad.

Here in our serene slice of Shangri-la Sakura Square, late spring sends residents scurrying. Yale students go off for research in exotic lands. Others head to houses on Cape Cod, Vermont and Maine.

Unfortunately for some, they are leaving the Square for bigger and better things. Those of us who choose to stick around love that the Elm City slows down a bit, but gets real HOT! 

We have a three week International Arts and Ideas Festival, starting Monday the 15th. Over 80% of the events are free and are fun, informative and thought provoking! This year, the 20th, is one of the biggest and best! Read about neighbor and Wooster Squarian Mary Lou Aleskie, the director, and all about the festival. Free is free people! Come join the fun

And if that isn't enough, in Wooster Square the
St. Andrews Society throws their festival.
They heft around a metal statue of St. Andrew
around Wooster Square... it's quite a traditional
and historical sight to see!

The Festival is June 25-28th.

But wait, there's more!

The Connecticut Tennis Open is played
in New Haven at Yale 
from August 21-29.

Soaring City Sights Surprisingly Surreal

OK, Graduating Seniors or graduating whatever,
the Blog has searched its vast resources for advice...the NSA, Eric Snowden, Nate Silver, Arianna Huffington and the Yale Hockey (mens and womens) teams. 

Here are the top three for 2015 Grads!
