Everyone seems to be on Twitter and Facebook these days, and we're no exception. We now have pages set up where followers (Twitter) and fans (Facebook) can ask us questions, read the latest info on the Boston restaurant scene, or simply get in touch. We mentioned Twitter in the last newsletter; in this one, we talk about Facebook, so read on....

This Issue's Feature

Restaurant Closings and Openings

It is often said that in the restaurant industry, the only constant is change, and that certainly applies to the Boston restaurant scene. Each month, a number of area dining spots seem to close down, while other new restaurants open up.

It can be difficult to keep track of all the changes, which is why we have a special feature on Boston-area restaurant openings and closings that we update constantly. We try to list all the closings and openings that we know of, but if you hear of any that we have missed, feel free to contact us and we'll add them to the list!

Ice Cream Stands/Shops That Make Their Own Ice Cream?

Tell us about a Boston-area or New England ice cream stand or shop that makes their own ice cream in our questions and answers feature; we will post your answer in the "Replies" section of the question.
