The Bruins ended the Lightning’s winning streak on Thursday with a convincing 4-1 win at TD Garden. Boston ended the month — in this case February –with no regulation losses for the first time since November of 2011. Three goals in the span of 1:28 in the third period turned the tide for the Bruins. Elsewhere, the Celtics host the Wizards tonight at 8 p.m., with Boston hoping to end its four-game losing streak. And the Revolution kick off the season on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. in Texas against FC Dallas. Aaron Judge spoke about his Fenway song selection from the 2018 playoffs: After the Yankees won Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Red Sox last fall, slugger Aaron Judge walked out of Fenway Park blaring “New York, New York” on his speaker. It created a clear response from Red Sox players, who not only played it in Yankee Stadium after defeating their New York rivals in the series, but also again after winning the World Series. On … [Read more...] about Morning sports update: Aaron Judge blamed Fenway Park for the ‘New York, New York’ ALDS incident

Several EU countries demanded that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro call new elections by Sunday amid the country’s political chaos. Maduro refused to do so, telling Spanish TV on Sunday: “We don’t accept ultimatums from anyone.” At the same time, US President Donald Trump – who backs Maduro opponent Juan Guaidó – is considering sending troops into Venezuela. Maduro threatened to plunge Venezuela into civil war if Trump went ahead with this reported plan. The beleaguered Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro refused to call new elections in response to demands from several European countries. He also warned that the US presidency would be “stained with blood” if President Donald Trump goes ahead with his reported plans to intervene. EU countries including Austria, Britain, France, Germany, and Spain last week told Maduro to call fresh elections by Sunday or else they would formally recognise Maduro’s … [Read more...] about Maduro refuses Europe’s ultimatum to call new elections in Venezuela, and threatens a White House ‘stained with blood’ if Trump intervenes
In a difficult year with big-name closures in the Boston-area dining and drinking scene, plenty of inventive work went on in other local kitchens. Global flavors, hearty comfort food, and healthful creations (sometimes made by robots) pleased even the most sophisticated palates. Adding to the satisfaction were creative cocktails, painstakingly selected wines, and flavor-forward beers and spirits. Here are some of the most notable debuts since December 2017. 1. ALCOVE A greasy slice has its charm, but partaking of a civilized meal before a game or after work is nice, too. Thanks to industry veteran Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli, doing just that is easier than ever at Alcove, near the TD Garden. Chef Maxime Fanton is French and grew up in Italy, Schlesinger-Guidelli has roots in the agricultural area that stretches along Buzzards Bay, and the menu lands somewhere between New England and the Mediterranean: octopus with potatoes, olives, and chiles, say, or radiatori with braised duck. The … [Read more...] about The 37 best new restaurants in Boston and the suburbs
Mexico City is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, and its metro carries 1.6 billion people every year. New York City is the only subway that carries more passengers, but Mexico City’s system puts it to shame. My experience in the Mexican capital showed that trains can be fast, clean, and quiet, without the need for expensive station upgrades or even express trains. New York City could learn a lot from Mexico City’s metro system. The Mexican capital is the largest city in North America, and even the US’ largest city pales in comparison to its sweeping neighbourhoods and suburbs that stretch for miles across the valley. Despite carrying 1.6 billion passengers per year – second only to New York in North America – in and around Mexico’s capital and the largest Spanish speaking city in the world the system is relatively simple to navigate and eerily quiet compared to New York’s screeching trains (and often time, loud … [Read more...] about I checked out Mexico City’s metro and was blown away by how much cleaner, faster, and quieter it is than New York’s subway. Here’s what it was like.
New York has the oldest and most expansive subway system in North America. But the first ever underground station to open has long been shuttered since World War II. Today, the only way to get to the abandoned masterpiece is by special tour. When New York City’s subway first opened in 1904, it was a true modern marvel. Its very first station, almost directly beneath City Hall, was a sight to see. Sun flooded the platform from skylights in the ground above, and gilded chandeliers filled the shadows with electric light. On the first day of service, some 15,000 New Yorkers would pay the nickel fare to ride the first subway to open outside of Europe. But things wouldn’t remain so glorious for this station. Once train cars became longer, the gaps between doors and platforms were deemed too wide to be safe. What’s more, many passengers opted to walk from the larger Brooklyn Bridge station nearby, which had express service that the City Hall loop did not. Today, … [Read more...] about There’s an unused subway station underneath New York’s City Hall. Here’s what it’s like to visit.
