Beer lovers rejoice

The etymology of the word gueuze (pronounced goo-zah or gerh-za) is open to some debate. While one theory purports that the word comes from the old Norman word for wheat, the most popular myth is that it comes from the ancient Norse word geyse — to gush — because this rare Belgian-style beer is made with a process that causes fermented beer to blast out of the bunghole of oaken barrels much like a geyser. Whatever the true origination of the word, Worcester beer lovers will rejoice because this style of Lambic beer, as well as many others, is coming to Worcester on June 23 and 24 at The Festival being hosted at Mechanics Hall on 321 Main St. in Worcester.

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans?

New arrivals to Worcester are quick to notice the potential of this city, held afloat by a small but devoted group of activists, who work tirelessly to provide fun, equity and culture. Paul "Paulie" Collyer is one of them; though, if you ask him, he's just having a party and promoting the things that he loves.

The Royal Southern Brotherhood

The Royal Southern Brotherhood is an amalgamation of some of rock 'n' roll's and blue's most prestigious families coming together to put a collective stamp on the genre. The band is made up of Mike Zito, Devon Allman, Yonrico Scott and Charlie Wooten. Each of these names carries quite a bit of weight alongside it and with that weight comes a perceived responsibility to create something above and beyond the ordinary. But, do the gentlemen of The Royal Southern Brotherhood feel this weight on their shoulders?

9th Annual Asian Festival

Worcester is filled to the brim with a variety of cultures. Each person carries with them a heritage and history that they belong to and identify with. For many years, individual communities in Worcester have united to revel in their cultural traditions with celebrations like the Grecian Festival that took place just a few weeks ago.
