Steve Harvey is a busy man these days. Between hosting his radio show and getting women to yell “penis!” on “Family Feud,” he found time to partner with Match.com on launching Delightful, a dating site primarily catering to women “looking to find true love.” As the author of wildly successful relationship advice book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Committment,” who else would be better qualified as the CLO (Chief Love Officer) of a major dating site than Steve Harvey?

You don’t need me to tell you that the craft alcohol industry is on the rise. An interactive and consumer-friendly trade, brewing is the latest trend in innovation that everyone wants to be involved with. “Drinking Buddies” made the environment story fodder, social networks like Untappd encourage users to seek and share different drinks; here in Massachusetts we’ve even got our own craft beer scandal going on!

And after a four-day trip to Boston last weekend, he’s shared some of the Boston area’s most interesting facilities. More

Fashion

Point/Counterpoint is a recurring feature on BDCwire which explores the pros and cons of various parts of life in Boston. These arguments may or may not, break any new ground, but they’re meant as a starting point for you too to make an argument. This week’s debate involves whether or not it’s cool when people don the ‘sexy’ Disney-inspired halloween costume. What do you think? Are you pro-sexy Snow White or anti-dirty Disney costumes? More

How the B Line’s Flaws Made Me a Better, More Empathetic Person
Commentary

I’d argue there are few things funnier in life than the faces people make when a Green Line trolley on the dreaded B line, seemingly arbitrarily, decides to go express and pass them right by. Beneath furrowed brows, they look both exhausted and resigned. Protest and acceptance together create a sad state of equilibrium in their wrinkles. They are disappointment incarnate, watching their ride to work go on without them. You can almost feel their contempt through the windows. It’s probably raining out too. More

Take My Advice: How Do I Deal With an MBTA Bus Bully?
help

I ride the same bus to work every day, and I often see the same people during my commute. One woman in particular is an incredible bully. She’ll elbow her way through everyone to get on earlier (and snag a seat), she’ll leave her bags on an empty seat next to her even during rush hour, so if anyone wants to sit there they have to ask (and then she gives them an evil eye and a lot of sighs, though she will move the bags)–basically, she’s just extremely rude. The other day, the bus got stuck for about 15 minutes because of road construction and she started screaming–top of your lungs screaming–at the bus driver about how this bus route was always terrible and she needed to be at work etc. She even said that she didn’t know why no one else was speaking up, since we “all felt this way.” I’m starting to actually hate this awful woman. Is there anything I can say or do to make her stop? More

Broke Beats: Allen Poe – “How Gardens Grow”
Music

So-called “conscious” hip-hop has fallen off in recent years, and that’s because it rapidly  becomes a cliche. It’s basically the slam poetry of rap music – and that sort of relentless #staywoke reflection is easy to lampoon. This makes it difficult for new lyrical thinkers to break through, but on his new tape “How Gardens Grow,” Kentucky rapper Allen Poe proves that some are worth reading beyond the cover. More
