I just got an email from the gay & lesbian caucus affiliated with my alma mater, and here’s an excerpt:
LGBT MAFIA NIGHT!
come dressed in your best for a fun evening!
at 7:30 PM – meet at the HARVARD T STOP to head over to a North End
Italian Restaurant (details coming in next week)
So, okay, the North End is clearly the place to go in Boston for Italian cuisine. And I can totally understand deciding to go there for a group event. But why is the theme “Mafia Night”? Seriously, can someone explain to me why this is cool? What’s next–Red Guard Night in Chinatown?
