If you’ve lived in Southie for a minute you know about Hollywood’s push to bring reality T.V. to South Boston. Or, maybe you’ve seen the Real Housewives of South Boston on YouTube. Personally, I try not to take it too seriously because it is not the real Southie I see day in and day out at all, and this is part of the reason I decided to create a scavenger hunt showcasing the best of Southie. There were other reasons, like supporting veterans and learning more about Southie myself.
