Last Night at the Democracy Center

BCR held its last regular meeting at the dear old Democracy Center last night, after six years.  We shared our favorite memories of the place, there was laughter, tears, loud noises from the improv group in the next room… and we did a jam comic (for a better look, see the BCR Tumblr).  Everyone should always support the Democracy Center, a bastion of ramshackle progressive independence in the now all-too-corporate Harvard Square.  But for BCR… on to the Cambridge Public Library!
