A Look Inside Bodega, Boston’s Hub For Sneakerheads
Fashion

Boston’s street apparel boutique Bodega is a bit like Narnia—it’s got all kinds of cool stuff inside, it’s full of colorful characters, and it’s hidden behind a seemingly ordinary portal, which, in this case, is a Snapple vending machine rather than a magical wardrobe. More

Snowbrawls, Chowder Showdowns, and More Events in Boston This Week
Boston events

This week’s events roundup comes with the caveat that half of this stuff is going to be canceled or rescheduled due to the looming snowmaggedopocalypse, and anyways there’s a decent chance we’ll all be huddled together around a single Yankee Candle in our powerless homes for a couple days and the idea of leaving to go to an “event” will sound insane. Just make sure you can travel safely and events are still on, and if not, you can always go sledding.

This Boston Puppy Cannot Handle the Ice (Even in Slow Motion)
Boston

Bernese Mountain Dogs seem like the type of dog that should be able to handle snow. The breed originates from Switzerland, and it’s got mountain right in its name. But if this slo-mo video of Quinn the Boston-area Bernese is any indication, the breed could use a little bit of training before the historic blizzard hits tonight. More

Dropkick Murphys to Likely GOP Presidential Candidate: ‘We Literally Hate You’
Politics

Boston punk rockers the Dropkick Murphys have seen their song “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” become a staple of Boston sporting events, then rise to national prominence when it was featured in The Departed. But the band took issue when their Boston anthem was used at a political event by Wisconsin Governor (and likely 2016 republican presidential candidate) Scott Walker, and they took to Twitter to express their extreme displeasure.

Royal Rumble Recap: Roman Reigns Victorious, and Nobody Is Thrilled
TV

For the second consecutive year, wrestling fans across the globe hoped Daniel Bryan would emerge victorious at the Royal Rumble, and go on to battle the heavyweight champion of the world at Wrestlemania. Indeed, the unmatched technical prowess and daring-do of the erstwhile “American Dragon” against the avalanche of brute force provided by the rightly nicknamed “Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar would’ve made an exceptional main event at the so-called grandest stage of ‘em all.

Take My Advice: I Wanted the Wedding, But Now I’m Not So Sure
help

I’m in my mid-twenties, and in the last couple years it feels like every single one of my friends got married. I guess it made me worry that my relationship wasn’t going anywhere, and I kinda pressured my boyfriend into popping the question. Now the wedding is a couple months away and I’m starting to worry I made a huge mistake. I’m always picking fights with him, and I’m starting to feel really attracted to one of my coworkers. Is this just cold feet? I still care about my boyfriend, I think, but the closer we get, the less certain I feel. More

Boston is a particularly great place for scrumptious food adventures, so we put together a ranking of some of our city’s best food-related Instagram accounts.
