Best of NU: Best Student Group

April 21, 2011

‘Boston’s Finest’ nightlife showcased online

April 14, 2011
Most college students in this city have, at least once, met some crazy, memorable characters on the late night streets of Boston. Imagine preserving those memories on film and sharing them with the world on a website dedicated to the finest elements of nightlife in the Hub. Edek Wasilewski, a middler communication studies major, wanted to share his own funny stories, so he created a website to make this possible. He and his six-person team are launching the full version of Bostonsfinest.tv April 20. Currently, a preview site is up with a video the team made at the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Southie. While videos of late night shenanigans are going to be the top feature of Boston’s Finest, the site will have other highlights such as blogs, a Twitter feed, nightlife advice and other items that reflect culture in Boston.
