Check Out How Wonderful Harvard Square Really Is

We always knew Harvard Square was special, but this seals the deal: The neighborhood is joining forces to raise money for Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes, the newlyweds who lost their left legs in the marathon bombings. Naturally, the Out-of-Town News Kiosk, where Matt Damon once break-danced, plays a key role.

A raffle area will be set up at the kiosk during Mayfair on May 5 from 12 p.m. until 6 p.m. Stop by and buy a raffle ticket, with proceeds going to Give Forward, where a donation page has been set up in honor of the couple. The grand prize is a one-night stay at the Charles Hotel and dinner for two at Henrietta's Table. If you can't make it, consider donating through Give Forward anyway. (They've already raised $678,740!)

Of course, you should head out to Mayfair anyway — it's always a great time with an awesome restaurant line-up.
