the buzz




Boston, Massachusetts

Oliver Wendell Holmes may have simply meant that Boston’s State House was “the hub of the solar system.” But locals quickly deemed the whole city worthy of such praise, and Boston itself became known as “the Hub.” (Later, Bostonians would expand this modest conceit to encompass the entire universe). For certain, Boston was the home of some of America’s most important nation-building moments: the Boston Tea Party, the start of Paul Revere’s ride, the Battle of Bunker Hill. At one time, Boston was a major player in turning Caribbean molasses into rum -- molasses also being the secret ingredient in Boston baked beans and Boston brown bread. Today, Boston is a hub of both fine and causal dining. The North End continues to show off its Italian heritage. And the South End is rapidly becoming the best place in town for enjoying trendy cuisines. If you’re looking for coffee and a donut to get you going in the morning, you shouldn’t need to walk further than the nearest corner to find a Dunkin’ Donuts.
