With the sultry weather of summer now fully upon us, there are few things that offer such a stylish form of relief as an ice-cold, well-made cocktail. In Boston there are a number of truly wonderful bars, where you can cool off with a fine drink, whether it be a tried and true classic or a tasty concoction invented on the spot.
One of the best and most consistently inventive local bars is Craigie on Main in Central Square, Cambridge. Carrie Cole is the senior bartender at Craigie, where she creates an array of artfully executed drinks that not only stand on their own, but also complement the restaurant’s eclectic menu. No mean feat. Continue reading
It was love at first sight.
The story may seem somewhat stereotypical: girl (or boy) goes to Italy and falls in love. This was me last year when I arrived in Siena for my sixth-month sojourn, which is otherwise known as study abroad. The catch?

Food memories, especially those from childhood, are so important to us all. Yet trying to recreate them later in life is sometimes very difficult. Thanks to Domenick Cusolito’s family, memories of Tower Root Beer in Somerville can be relived. With determination and luck, the originally recipe was found and Tower Root Beer revived. Genevieve Rajewski gives an account of their family’s story in the summer edition of Edible Boston. (You can also follow Genevieve through her blog Wicked Tasty Harvest).

If there’s one thing in this world we can all agree on, it’s the awesomeness of ice cream.
Everyone — from my 14-year-old brother to Steve Grossman, the Democratic candidate for Massachusetts treasurer — has found joy in an icy, creamy treat on a hot summer day. (Maybe no one more than Grossman, actually, who has been conducting a state-wide ice cream tour throughout his campaign.)
But there’s a point at which we all diverge – which flavor is the best? Continue reading

So sorry to do this, but we are cancelling tonight’s Meet Up on account of the pending storm. It looks pretty bad, which does remain to be seen, but we’d rather have this be a whiz-bang event for as many people as possible. We suspect that many of you have shopped and perhaps prepared already, but we hope you had taken the “no dough” part of the evening seriously and that not too much ‘dough’ or effort has been expended…
The good news is, we are in the process of re-scheduling the Meet Up ASAP (sometime next week). We will post that new date immediately.
Thanks so much, everybody, and again our apologies! We’ll be in touch soon.
