Happy Hour: Here’s to You, Boston

Happy Hour is back and we're throwing the spotlight on The Hub. The Curiosity Desk's Edgar Herwick asks, "Just what is it that makes Boston, Boston?" The Sox and the Citgo sign? The hallowed and oft-maligned T? Our Puritan past? All those thinkers, geeks, and entrepreneurs buzzing about? How do Bostonians define their city and just how accurate is the image of it that we broadcast to the rest of the world?

Boston Globe reporter Alex Beam (@imalexbeamyrnot) brings his signature wry wit to the party for an incisive look at the region, and historian Ed O'Donnell (@InThePastLane) examines some of the local history that tends to get swept under the rug. Plus, John Romard — aka @BostonAttitude on Twitter — offers his spirited take on the soul of the city. And if that isn't enough, Lesley University's Dean of the College of Art and Design, Richard Zauft (@RichardZauft) gives insight into the trajectory of creativity. Hear from and chat with these local pros over a drink — hosted by Edgar B. Herwick III (@ebherwick3) of WGBH's Curiosity Desk.
