The Last Word

Your long day of corporate drudgery is over. Get out and enjoy the city! Here are a few ideas to get you started, lovingly picked by Boston Daily.

We’ve taken a lot of flack for ragging on American Idol castoff Kellie Pickler in the run-up to tonight’s Station Nightclub Fire Benefit.

Boston Daily saw Julius Caesar over the weekend and thought it was good. Make up your own mind as the play continues its run at the American Repertory Theater.

If you’re anything like us, you can’t get enough discussion about this presidential election cycle. Instead of watching another episode of Hardball, head to the Media and Politics panel discussion at BU to hear the opinions of local and national journalists.
