CBD TRUTHS FROM “THE TRUTH”
Paul Pierce. Boston icon. Legendary athlete. And now, CBD magnate in the making. Yes, “The Truth” showed up at Equinox gym above the Ritz Carlton last Saturday to launch his new line of CBD that was being released in partnership with cannabis delivery platform Eaze Wellness.
There was a shootout contest, some burritos and non-alcoholic beer (it was a gym after all), and the man himself there to thank Boston for always supporting him. Check out Cannapreneur’s interview with the legendary player about his CBD journey, and his advice for those curious about CBD usage and products.

FOOD REPORT: TIME TO NOSH
Unless you have heaps of foodies and lifestyle journalists connected to all your social media touchpoints, you’re likely to have missed all the excitement and FOMO posts of the sparkling new Time Out Market Boston that just opened in Fenway.
“What’s this all about, huh?” you may be saying to yourself. Well, sit back and let this rich and savory dive into everything to eat and drink there, courtesy of the good people at Eater Boston who break down the offerings in the sprawling bazaar, and give you a new reason to head to that area of town with an empty stomach and head full of ideas:
“Time Out Market Boston, located in the vastly revamped Fenway building formerly known as the Landmark Center (401 Park Dr.), features 15 food vendors, two bars, and a demo kitchen. It’s part of a growing international chain of food halls — which is part of the decades-old Time Out media brand.
Time Out opened its first market in Lisbon in 2014, followed by Miami and New York last month, and Chicago and Montreal will open later this year, followed by Dubai, London, and Prague further down the line. Each location aims to showcase a selection of the city’s best local chefs and restaurants.
For Boston, that means a stellar collection of classics like lobster rolls, burgers, and fried chicken sandwiches, as well as some more offbeat dishes like smashed wonton toast and tacos with crispy nori shells.”
FOOD REPORT PT. DEUX: VEGAS BABY, VEGAS (IN EVERETT)
Of course unless you’ve been living under a rock, or just don’t spend as much time in Boston proper as you’d like so missed the news that Everett just got its own glimmering Vegas-y casino and entertainment pleasuredome, Encore Boston, check out Boston Globe food critic Devra First’s entertaining romp eating her way through the venue so you and your waistline didn’t have to (but you still can, it’s a free country). Let her set the scene for you first:
“It is the most beautiful day of the still-young summer, and I am standing in line with hundreds of other souls hoping to escape the sunshine and fresh air with a visit to the Encore Boston casino. This is opening day, and there are a dozen restaurants waiting inside, beyond the flower carousel and the grandly sweeping escalators and the giant, shiny Jeff Koons statue of Popeye, which casino mogul Steve Wynn purchased for $28 million. This doesn’t feel like Boston. It doesn’t even feel like America. It feels like Casinoland, somewhere between a luxury mall and the Mos Eisley cantina, only more overstimulating.”
BEST OF THE BEST
If all this talk of new markets this, and cool bars and restaurants and casinos that, and other things that get you thinking “Hey what are the best things in the best city to have the best time at right now?” Good thing for you Boston Magazine’s annual Best of Boston awards across all aspects of life in the Hub just came out. Read who the 314 winners were and why here.
WHO TURNED ON THE SUN?
You may feel like it’s been raining around the Commonwealth for the last 7,909,494 days. It hasn’t, but we get it. So you’re probably ready to go do something fun. Outside. For something that may or may not involve amazing mural art with homegrown talent and some from as far away as Spain, live music, the thoughtful re-purposing of wasted city land and the possibilities for community based settings for gathering and listening to live music. Oh and if there’s food trucks for the whole thing, great. Well good news – there’s a summer kickoff party involving all of that (and games!) at The Underground GetDown! at Ink Block on Saturday June 29th from 2-6pm.
