"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."

Where Startups Drink and Dine in Fort Point

Fort Point has gone through a dramatic transformation in just the past few years. While previously, there were limited restaurants and bars in the area, new businesses have been rapidly cropping up in the ‘hood. So for startups that are based there, there is an array of options to choose from for lunchtime grub and happy hour drinks.

Now the question is, what are their favorite spots to hit after a long day at the office?

 

Tavern Road

343 Congress Street

CoachUp founder Jordan Fliegel says this is one of his team’s top picks. And Paul English calls the Moscow Mule at Tavern Road his new go-to drink. "Be sure to get it in a copper mug," he says.

 

Bastille Kitchen

49 Melcher Street

Paul English loves the downstairs bar at this French bistro (which used to be a factory), and says Blade people can often be found there after work.

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”

Late Night MBTA Service to Continue on a Reduced Schedule

On Wednesday afternoon, the MassDOT board approved the continuation of Late-Night T Service, but will operate on a reduced schedule due to budgetary constraints. This means, according to the Boston Globe, that passengers will have to wait for a longer duration of time between rides.

 

The initial trial period for the service allowed for the subway and certain bus lines to operate as late as 2:30 a.m. but the latest approval, for which $10 million is dedicated, curtails that time to just 2 a.m. It's part of "a $2.02 billion budget for the T’s 2016 fiscal year," reports the Globe.

 

Further, starting June 27, the 15, 22, 71, 73, and 77 bus routes will not operate past 12:30 a.m. Ten other bus lines will remain.
