This has been a fantastic spring for the South End Community. April 25th is the start of ArtWeek Boston, and A Street Frames proudly helped support a fantastic event in March – Taste of the South End; hosted by AIDS Action Committee. Taste of the South End is an annual event, where guests enjoyed food and wine samplings from Boston’s best restaurants. A Street Frames was one of the event’s Sponsors at the Associate level and a longtime South End neighborhood business. The event was a smashing success.
