BOSTON—It's 'cause the city has had it with losing conventions: "A $1.1 billion project to expand the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center faced no opposition at a hearing at the State House yesterday, with supporters claiming it will add jobs and money to the economy." [Herald]
HUB-WIDE—Hubway kiosks will start shutting down Monday. [Hubway]
BOSTON—The Olympics in Boston? Please. "Some highway and transit projects translate well into everyday uses. But an Olympic stadium? ... Temporary housing for 15,000 athletes could be turned into college dorms, but there wouldn't be any single university that would need that kind of space." [Biz Journal]
REVERE—The hope still lives and the dream shall never die: "In the strongest indication yet that it planned to move forward despite being rejected by East Boston voters, Suffolk Downs expressed confidence to state gambling regulators on Thursday that it would submit an application for a proposed casino in Revere by the end of the year."
