Review: Chocolate and Caramel Tart at Crumb

Yumb. Today I sampled the chocolate and Caramel tart for you from Crumb. Just in case you went there for a chocolate chip cookie and came away with something different...DO get a latte if you get this tart! A coffee or latte would really complete this delicious afternoon treat.

Hey Beacon, help us help area food pantries!

Hello, fellow Beaconites!


For over a year, my husband and I have been swinging by the Beacon Bagel every morning on Tuesdays through Fridays, picking up their extra bagels and delivering them to various area food pantries and charities on our way to work across the river. But with a baby and some employment changes on the way, we won't be able to deliver bagels for much longer.


We’re looking for some volunteers to…

Black Newfoundland dog found on E. Main St. Thurs 4/14

A dog apparently was in a parked car but got out thru the window and was seen wandering around E. Main St. near the Howland Center (6:30-7pm) until a woman leashed him and tried to find the owner. She had to call the police to get the dog, so I hope the owner knows to check with the police and reunites with this sweet, friendly dog.

Teenagers breaking into Beacon Terminal Associates in the middle of the day

So its the first gorgeous Saturday of spring, I'm doing my usual run, Dia is packed, there's 20 cars parked at Madam Brett, crowds of hikers and fishermen are to and from Dennings Point... and 3 teenagers are breaking into Beacon Terminal Associates, the old hat factory, right through the front door at 2:30 PM.


The door is locked, but the trick they are using is easy (obviously I'm not going into details on a public website). Who manages Beacon Terminal Associates? The City…
