Being "Boston's Bike Czar," of course Nicole Freedman rode her bike all the way from Jamaica Plain to the studio today. She came to talk about The 10th annual Hub On Wheels citywide ride, presented by Mayor Martin J. Walsh and TD Bank. More
The atmosphere is always electric at Middlesex Lounge. Well, I suppose I can't speak for what it's like there any day but every third Sunday, but I can at least confirm that once every three weeks, there's a truly special kind of energy that invades Cambridge. More
There was a time, long, long ago that Boston beer nerds could go to their local liquor store and find bottles from Brasserie Cantillon, the tiny, much-lauded Belgian brewery best known for brewing world-class lambics. The bottles – nuanced, tart, often tough to find beers - gathered dust alongside other Belgian beers. More
It's shaping up to be a perfect late summer or early fall weekend, depending on how you want to look at things, and because I am a pessimist I'll call it "basically winter because I can see my own breath at night." So maybe pack a light jacket and enjoy this weekend's events while the sun still functions as a source of warmth in addition to providing light.
While it may seem counterintuitive to the folks that are unpacking their sweaters and loading up on pumpkin spice, surf season is about to begin. Yes, surfing is generally associated with carefree summers, babes in bikinis and buff dudes getting bronze, but this is New England, and the surf gods don't operate on the same schedule as the stereotypes.

It’s officially the last full week of summer. On the bright side, I misplaced my sunglasses three times since the beginning of this sentence, so it’ll be nice to go out to this week’s events without them. The down side to that, of course, is some stranger on the street might accidentally make eye contact with me, a massive invasion of personal space. Keep your eyes on the sidewalk, people. This isn’t the Midwest. More
At first sight, the Boston Freedom Rally held this past weekend in the Commons was exactly what you would expect it to be. There were endless circles of people passing joints, at least thirty white guys wearing Bob Marley t-shirts, and the words “dude” and “chill” were uttered countless times. Yet, if you kept your ear to the ground and drowned out the crappy reggae music playing, many of the people at the event had serious concerns about marijuana legislation. More
Gamers in Oculus virtual reality headsets and game controllers in hand infiltrated MIT on Saturday for the annual Boston Festival of Indie Games.
