    The Best Boston Tattoo Shops
    A tattoo is not something you go bargain hunting for. Ink is forever, and so quality takes ultimate precedence. That covers the tattoo design itself, and of course the artist rendering it on your skin. While the foremost consideration is the design itself - because it's difficult to change that once it's set in ink - the tattoo artist is a close second.

A Million Things May Go Wrong During a Restaurant Opening, but It’s How You React That Counts

I guess this is it. Next time I sit my not-as-fat-ass down to write, we will be open. Who? Which one? Are you having trouble following? Me too. But it’s Revival: a brand new cafe located at 125 Cambridgepark Dr. at Alewife in Cambridge.

    A Million Things May Go Wrong During a Restaurant Opening, but It's How You React That Counts
    Welcome back to , a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to open a restaurant - or several. In 2013, Steve "Nookie" Postal shared weekly glimpses into his experience opening Commonwealth in Cambridge, and now he's back as he works to open two cafes (Revival) and a beer hall (Mothership), all while keeping Commonwealth up and running.

    On the Market: An 1890 Home with Modern Flair
    This single-family in Davis Square is sunny and bright. Though this home was built in 1890, it exhibits quite a bit of modern flair in Davis Square. Its interior was renovated during the days when Cambridge's modern design mecca, Design Research, was still open. So sleek fixtures and contemporary accents are in abundance.

    Protected bike lanes aren't in final proposal for traffic changes coming to Porter Square
    Final plans for traffic safety improvements in Porter Square were presented Tuesday, updated from a form presented Jan. 18 but not erasing fully the strong opposition by residents and cycling activist groups. The presentation had the square's current five-phase traffic signal cycle (including one for pedestrians only, and another to leave the mall parking lot) still being replaced by a simpler three-phase cycle.
