I definitely struggle with this cognitive dissonance...

"Look, if homeopathic remedies make you feel better, take them. If the Paleo diet helps you eat fewer TV dinners, that’s great—even if the Paleo diet is probably premised more on The Flintstones than it is on any actual evidence about human evolutionary history. If non-organic crumbs bother you, avoid them. And there’s much to praise in Whole Foods’ commitment to sustainability and healthful foods.

Still: a significant portion of what Whole Foods sells is based on simple pseudoscience. "
Americans get riled up about creationists and climate change deniers, but lap up the quasi-religious snake oil at Whole Foods.

I was dismayed to discover that the owner of Whole Foods doesn't even believe in what Whole Foods stands for. It's strictly a marketing tool to him.

I now want to ferment all the things... Obsession is not an inaccurate word I think.

Wonderful local bookstore. Fantastic selection, helpful staff, and excellent recommendations plastered all over the shelves make this place a delight to visit. Every year our family goes to Vermont for vacation, and every year we stop here and spend some money. Sure, the books could be had for cheaper on Amazon, but the atmosphere is well worth a couple extra dollars. Besides that, the attached cafe has a delicious menu of sandwiches and salads that are always tasty. Way better to eat while diving into your newest book.

Friendly atmosphere, and a good range of features and grades. Somewhat in-between the just-back-from-the-crag grunge of Metrorock (don't get me wrong - I love that feel) and the only-climb-on-plastic hipster vibe of Brooklyn Boulders, Central Rock feels like a place that casual climbers can feel totally at home in, but has plenty to offer the hard-core rock jocks. All of the tracked routes are based on the color of the holds rather than tape, and the grades feel about standard for New England, though they stick with +/- grades even past 5.9 (no letter grades). I haven't gone often enough to have a sense for how often they change the routes, but the routes are fun and a good mix of thought-provoking and strength-challenging. I also haven't done any bouldering or leading, but they've got plenty of dedicated space for both. I have a yearly membership at Metrorock, but I'll still pay for Central Rock every now and again for the variety and change of pace, and it's well worth it. If you live nearby or don't have a strong allegiance to MR, you could do far worse.

Great atmosphere, good food, very friendly service, quite pricey (though worth it). Alden & Harlow serves tapas-style, which is to say individual items are small and meant to be shared, not that the cuisine is necessarily Spanish. It's worth noting when you look at the prices on the menu that you will likely be ordering more than 1 of those dishes per person, so don't be fooled by the fact that each dish is only $10-15. You'll likely be ordering 2-3 dishes per person. We ordered basically everything that was vegetarian - there's not a huge selection, but almost everything was delicious so it ended up being more than enough. There are a couple menu items that have meat, but can be made without. The only complaint was the heirloom egg dish, which was a bit heavy on the garlic salt. Aside from that (I think we ordered a total of 6 items), every dish was unique, delectable and beautifully presented. They have a decent selection of draft beers, list of bottles. The one cocktail we ordered (The Copperfield) was delicious - the mixture really brought out the flavor of the gin, but without the boozy taste (even though it was clear from its effects that it was quite stiff). I can't comment on the wine selection. The wait staff was wonderful. The guy taking point was very friendly and responsive, and very thorough in pointing out which dishes were not vegetarian when we asked (some had unfamiliar names of fish). Different people brought out the different dishes and described them in detail (including knowing what was modified), and our water glasses were always kept topped off. Dessert was very unique: crème fraîche with strawberries and fresh rhubarb (very interesting combination of flavors). They also have a nice list of brewed tea served in individual pots. All in all, a great experience, though quite pricey. Definitely will become a go-to for special occasions.

Pretty standard indian cuisine for a reasonable (a bit towards the high-end) price, Diva really stands out in their preparation of tandoori-style dishes. There's a big glass window into a part of the kitchen where the tandoori ovens are, and you can watch things being prepared, but this is a bit disconcerting when you have the table right in front of it - you can't watch anything else. The lights are kept pretty dim at night, so be sure to bring your glasses or have a spot-light app on your phone if you have trouble reading in the dark.

Whenever my fiancée and I have something to celebrate, and want something fancy, we go to the Fireplace. Wonderful menu (that changes regularly), mostly sourced locally, including great beer and wine list, and a nice, cozy atmosphere. They also have a decent selection of vegetarian options (important since my fiancée is vegetarian). Getting a cheese platter is a must - a great selection of local cheeses from MA, VT and NH of all different sorts (from blue to cheddar). Food is consistently fantastic, the only reason it gets 4 stars is because the service is a bit uneven. Some servers are fantastic, friendly, and always on top of getting what you need. Others are surly and can't be bothered. But the food is always worth taking a crap-shoot on the service.
