2011 GQ magazine named Boston the worst dressed city in America. Caught
with their slim-fitting, flat-front chinos down, Boston's sartorialists sought to redeem this city in 2012. Luckily, it turns out that there are plenty of outfitters in this town
that cater to discerning gentlemen. From icons like Bobby's from Boston to
upstarts like Ball & Buck, and innovators like a mobile streetwear truck,
these nominees brought style and swagger back to Boston's streets.
shamelessly snapping iPhone selfies of your #KillerAbs in public-bathroom
mirrors? It may be time for professional help. Lara Woolfson and Kate Harper of
Waltham's Studio Nouveau let locals unleash their inner bombshells through sexy
boudoir photography (as shown above). And photographer Ryuji Suzuki of Boston's
Beaupix has a growing business taking online-dating profile pics for clients.
Boston's been characterized as a beer city since before Sam Malone was pouring
pints for Norm, a cityscape of Irish pubs and discarded PBR tallboys. But
the revival of mixology sweeping American drinking culture has reached Boston.
These nominees represent the best Boston has when it comes to shaking and
stirring, from hipster dens like Backbar to tony establishments
like Eastern Standard.

The American Repertory
Theater's third annual Valentine's Gala brought a well-dressed crowd of theater
buffs to the Revere Hotel, where they mingled with drag queens, company
members, and some dude named Zachary Quinto. The cocktail hour was followed by
dinner, dancing, and awards, plus a sneak-preview performance from Cirque du
Soleil's Amaluna, directed by ART artistic director
Diane Paulus and hitting Boston

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
It's that time of year again -- to hit the streets and protest in the name of privacy and Internet neutrality. On February 23, the designated International Day for Privacy (#IDP13), local activists and advocates are planning to rally outside the Massachusetts Statehouse before hosting a CryptoParty at which they'll teach self-defense tactics for protecting one's self from the prying eyes of Big Brother.
Doug Rodrigues, with a big-ass knife, in the kitchen at Clio.
"I'm kind of a live wire," Clio executive chef Doug Rodrigues told the Phoenix earlier this month. "I'm not consistent, and people can’t
really read me most of the time. As soon as you think I’m some hard-ass prick,
I’ll go soft on you."
Well, clarification: Rodrigues is no longer employed at Clio.

Live streaming video of the asteroid begins at 6 pm
Hey, look: scientists tell us there's absolutely no connection between that crazy fucking meteor shit in Russia (click the link for the awesome NYTimes story, written by former Phoenix staffer Ellen Barry) and the huge-ass asteroid that's hurtling within a mere 17,000 miles of earth this afternoon.
To celebrate Jumpstart's 20th anniversary, the nonprofit's
Boston Young Professionals Board decided to celebrate in true '20s fashion with
a Gatsby-themed gala. Never ones to miss a chance at retro debauchery, we put
on our dancing shoes and headed to Fort Point, where we followed some flappers
across a nondescript lobby, into an elevator, and through a maze of hallways to
a tucked-away ballroom where swing music blared and giggle water flowed.
have long dominated the Interwebz. From LOLcats to Nyan Cat, Keyboard Cat to
Party Cat, felines are far and away the hottest house pet online. We could
watch "Henri, Paw de Deux" be existential and angsty on YouTube all day.
(Though not, uh, on our work computers or anything.) So it seemed only natural
that someone should collect the best of such videos and make a festival out of
them, which is exactly what happened at Minneapolis's first-ever Internet Cat
Video Film Festival last year.
In the Phoenix's 2013 V-Day spectacular, we did a little something special with our romance-themed fashion shoot, transforming our models' outfits into a paper-doll playset -- which shoulda been a primo way for Scrabble-fatigued Nemo shut-ins to beat cabin fever over the weekend. But perhaps you didn't feel like painstakingly cutting out the clothes in our paper-doll fashion shoot.
