Quick, what’s the capital of Canada? Alberta? Quebec? Ontario? Vancouver? Toronto? Watch as these Harvard kids feel quite un-Harvard as they grapple for the answer in this funny video by the school newspaper, The Crimson.
Are you getting sick of award campaigns that strive to name the best things in Boston, no matter how random and irrelevant they are to your life in the city? Best social media "ninja," best "tastemaker" in the HUB, best this, best that.
Tasty Burger is a late night snack mecca that sits in the shadow of America’s oldest ballpark. People leaving last calls, concerts, or long days at work congregate under the neon lit sign that takes you back to the days of fast cars and cigarette packs under your shirt sleeve. The restaurant's charm comes from that homage to the post-World War II burger joints that reeked of neighborhood flavor. Burgers, fries, shakes; simple pleasure food that seems to never lose its weight in our minds continues to draw crowds all day long. The Fenway location, and sister restaurants in Southie and Harvard Square, attract all kinds of characters. Especially during the witching hour. These are their faces.[Music: Johnny Ripper "Imaginary Friend"]

Have you looked at the nutritional facts on the back of your "healthy", "lite", or "reduced fat" pint of ice cream lately? You might be surprised to find that besides the words milk and cream, you probably wouldn't even be able to pronounce a majority of the ingredients. Diglycerides, Xanthan Gum, Polysorbate 80, Carrageenan....mmmm yum! Many of the regular ice cream options and reduced-fat frozen desserts in the supermarket (including Whole Foods) contain fillers, chemical additives and preservatives, a scary thought when you think about the fact that the average American polishes off more than 10 half-gallon cartons of the delicious treat a year.

With less than a month until Labor Day, there’s precious few days left for enjoying the outdoors. Summer’s too short to eat inside, so pack yourself a picnic and dine al fresco. Whether you’re headed to the Harbor Islands or the Common, here are two ways to create a winning picnic menu: buy or DIY.
Ever been in a situation where another person said something that left you wondering why they said it all? Or have you ever thought something but your unwillingness to be pegged as the precarious one led you not to say it out loud? Well take heed of Boston artist, Pat Falco, whose wittily painted characters and quippy one-liners depict us in all our eclectic and imperfect wonder without passing judgment, but rather causing a cryptic cackle of recognition so that we can laugh at each other and ourselves.
