The Weekender: Moving Madness

Allston Xmas Header

The weekend of moving madness has finally fallen upon Boston. Apparently 79% of rented units have a lease that starts on September 1st, leading to most of the city scrambling to transfer homes. It’s also known as Allston Christmas, since many residents in the borough leave unwanted “gifts” on the streets. Time to play #AllstonChristmas Bingo!

Can you complete the board this weekend? If you manage to photograph all of these and tag @uber_bos, we’ve got a little something for you 🙂

Stained Couch
Clean couches don’t count. Bonus points if it has a full set of cushions.
Beirut Table
Basically any piece of plywood with a logo painted on it was probably used as a ‘rut surface.
Something Burned
The real question is why they waited until the end of their lease to throw it away.
Someone who figured out those nightmares were probably caused by the animal head on their wall.
It didn’t really bring the room together.
Mixtape Collection
Somebody went digital. Or had a breakup.
Nothing really mattress. Free bedbugs!
Memories of victories past.
