Meet the Woman Painting Portraits of Her Dunkin’ Donuts Customers
Restaurants

Go to a coffee shop often enough, and you’re bound to see the same people again and again. That’s especially true for coffee shop employees, who quickly learn the names, orders, and mannerisms of their regulars. Amberlynn Narvie has gone a step beyond that — she has spent the last year painting a series of portraits of the regular customers who frequent the Dunkin’ Donuts she has worked at for the last three years in Beverly.

Photos: How Fenway Park Recovers From the Worst Winter Ever
Red Sox

From late January through March, a record-breaking snowfall descended on Boston, and Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, was hit just as hard as the rest of the city.

Ridiculous

This past weekend, many daring costumed racers gathered on Landsdowne Street for the 2015 Boston Urban Idiotorama Race. The event is fashioned after the famous Alaskan dogsled race, but instead of dogs and snow, this Iditarod has shopping carts and humans dressed in ridiculous costumes. We caught up with a few of the teams before they embarked on their crazy ride.

Broke Beats: Kev Decor – ‘LV BN BRK’
Music

Kev Decor bills his new mixtape LV BN BRK as a project, which seems to be accurate. It’s mostly a collection of singles (“4$”, “BANG”, and “Cuckoo” have all been released independently) and scraps hobbled together under an album cover, but that’s fitting considering the multitude of styles Decor experiments with over the course of the album
