DIRECTIONS TO LUKE'S HOUSE
110 Boston Ave
Directions to Palladium (Quasifandango) from Davis Square:
The address is 110 Boston Ave, #2, Somerville
This is just off Broadway's Ball Square in Somerville.
To drive from Boston:
I highly recommend getting a map because getting lost is as easy as
dropping one's hat. Furthermore there are all sorts of ways to get to my
house, I don't own a car so I don't understand navigation, and my
directions have been described by various folks as "sucky." But here
goes: Cross the Harvard bridge and head down Mass Ave. When you reach
Prospect (in Central Square, it has a light), take a right. Take Prospect
to Hampshire and take a left. Follow Hampshire (it turns into
Beacon) until it dead-ends. This is the main leg of the journey, so it
takes a bit of time. Notice Dali restauraunt and Wine and Cheese Cask at
halfway point--this is the best intersection in the city. When you have
reached the dead end, take a left onto Somerville, go a few blocks,
passing the supermarket on right, and take the first right you can (onto
Beech), go one block, cross Elm onto Willow (it is almost directly across
the street, a bit to the right), take Willow to Broadway, take a right, go
a few blocks, veer right at the fork onto Boston Ave, go a few blocks, and
you are done.
Find Broadway in Somerville. Boston Ave is a branch off of Broadway, and
I live three blocks from that intersection. The intersection is labeled
with a sign reading, "Ball Square."
Get out of the T, College Ave Exit. This is NOT the one on the same
block as the Somerville theater. You will be on College Ave, and this
non-existant-busses-go-on-it-but-no-cars street. Go down this fake
street. This street turns into a parking lot, and then it turns into
the bike path. Ignore these changing surroundings and keep to the
straight line of the original street. Follow the bike path. Cross
Willow, and go until you get to a round brick circle with a basketball
court on the right. Take a left and go down Highland street till you
get to Boston Ave. Take a right, and I am on the right in two blocks.
The entire walk takes 15-20 minutes.
Alternatively, you can march down College to Powder House Square and
then march down Broadway to Boston Ave. Take a right, and march down
to the house. This is 5 minutes longer, about.
Usually the downstairs door is unlocked or open; if it is, push and
come up to the 2nd floor. If not, ring the buzzer.
The phone number is 617-PROBATE or 905-4103 (cell)
