Video Monday: Aly and Aj

Apparently female teenie-boppers Aly and AJ stumbled into our city recently and found their way to Derby Books, one of my favorite bookstores.  Yes it’s a freaking mess and you can’t find anything there but that’s why we love it so much.  They also found out you should ask first – then video tape.

With the astronomical increase of people to Salem each weekend in October the cops are cracking down.  You might remember that in a recent article about the night life here we mentioned how Salem was booming on weekend nights.  The downside to our bars and restaurants being packed with revelers is that some tend to […]
