UberEats launches in Boston

Last week Boston joined a short list of cities that UberEats operates. The delivery service operates much like the company’s ride-sharing app. You download the app, log in, select a restaurant and order. You pay with the card you have on file and can watch as your order is delivered to wherever you are.

UberEats Boston

UberEats launched in 2015, and is available in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, Malden, Everett, Chelsea, Medford, and Brookline, with plans to expand to Arlington and Belmont.

AIDS Action Taste of the South End
Tuesday, March 21, 2017  ||  Tickets start at $125.00
Boston Center for the Arts, 6:00 – 9:00 PM

This is easily the best tasting event of the season and one any foodie should not miss. I also think this is one of the best organized events of its kind in Boston. The fact that proceeds go to the AIDS Action Committee is a bonus. For more information visit tasteofthesouthend.org.

Museum of Science presents Chocolate: The exhibition

Back Bay Chocolate Walking TourThe Museum of Science (one of my favorite museums to visit as a kid) often falls off my radar as an adult. How else can I explain that I had no idea there was an amazing exhibit underway called Da Vinci – The Genius until I learned about the Chocolate exhibit, which initially made me check out their website?

While the Da Vinci exhibit sounds interesting and I may go check it out, Chocolate: The exhibition sounds like something I could really sink my teeth into so to speak. The temporary exhibition which opens today and runs through May 7, 2017 will test your chocolate knowledge of this delicious food and help you appreciate the role it has played through history.

The exhibit shares interesting facts about the plant, the products and the culture of chocolate through the lenses of science, history, and popular culture.  Tickets to the exhibit are $25 for adults and $20 for children if you are not a member.
