In the badlands of western Pennsylvania, about thirty miles east of Pittsburgh, sits the town of New Alexandria. Should you ever find yourself passing along Route 22, keep an eye out. At 40° 23' 52...

My friend Amy Jane and I started a podcast called Just The Tip. Folks here may enjoy it.

You can start anywhere, really, but I'd recommend either starting at the beginning, or with my favorite episode so far, "Louse Got Your Tongue?": http://justthetip.fm/2013/07/29/episode-5-louse-got-your-tongue/

If you don't love the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, you don't love America. Or maybe you do.

Still, check out One Foot Tsunami's recap of one of the most disgusting spectacles in sports.

As it has since 2009, One Foot Tsunami is proud to once again celebrate the birth of America by providing our award-deserving coverage of the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. Unfortunately, like la...

This might be the worst tweet I've ever seen.
E.B. White said "Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it". In other words, explaining a joke tends to ruin it. However, when it comes to things ...

We finished up Season One of the Just The Tip comedy podcast last month. Now, less than one month later, I'm remembering to promote it here. Listen to all 15 episodes to get caught up for Season Two, coming in early 2014.
Just under a month ago, the first season of Just The Tip came to a close. Though I only mentioned the show on this site a couple times, the full season wound up clocking in at fifteen funderful epi...

You're still ahead of me. But maybe in 2014 I'll remember to promote +Mac Geek Gab here. :)

I’m not saying the Red Sox should give me a World Series ring. But I’m not NOT saying that either.
If you've listened to Episode #13 of Just The Tip (“The Boss's Nips”!), you're already familiar with a particular photo featuring your humble author, alongside international film star/m...

For the past few months, I've been working as a project coordinator with the folks behind The Flag of Equal Marriage. The flag tracks equal marriage rights in the US, with one star for each state which offers same-sex marriage.

Yesterday, to welcome back California, we unveiled our new website:

http://makeitequal.org

It's pretty gorgeous (that's all Magdalena Steciuk), and it should help spread the word, thereby getting people involved. You can track progress on the site, and follow links to take action (from contacting your reps to donating to Freedom to Marry). 

Since this is a worthy cause, I'll shill for Likes, Shares, +1s, Tweets, and so on - spread the word and join the cause.

At present, Blackmoor is "soft open", as they work out any kinks. If you know Olde Magoun's in Somerville though, you're likely excited for Blackmoor. I went in for a drink on Thursday night, and it was rather crowded - 50 or more people, so it's already starting off well. The kitchen had closed, so we only sampled drinks. What we had was quite good.The drink selection was very nice, with a long draft list (listed on their website and updated regularly) as well as plenty of spirits. The cocktail list was short, just 6 items, but they all sounded tasty, and the Breed Hill was especially nice. Downeast Cider, made right down the road, is on draft and delicious. It's definitely worth stopping in to Blackmoor.

I'm a big fan of this place - a good bar, good food, lots of seating, and they're open late. The ravioli of the day is always worth a look, and the whole menu is good or above.

This is the original, and as far as I'm concerned, the only Regina. The chain is utterly forgettable, but the pizza at this location is good. You'll often see a line out the door, which is a bit silly, but that's how it often goes. You can skip the line if you call ahead for pick-up, or just get slices.

This should be 3.5 stars, but I'll round up instead of down. Scoozi is conveniently located near Fenway Park, without being so close that it's overrun. I probably shouldn't give away that secret, but there it is. They have a decent draft beer selection, and decent pizza, paninis, and pastas. Is it amazing? No. But it's both good and convenient. They also have a nice patio with a dozen or more tables, which is very nice in the summer.

Bova's is a phenomenal little gem, tucked a few minutes away from the more overrun spots on Hanover Street. They've got a wide variety of delicious pastries available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Let the tourists have their Mike's boxes and their line at Modern Pastry. They're just fine, but they're not open at 3 AM. Bova's is, and I'll be there. You should be too.
