No identity crisis

If great art and great artists are supposed to contain multitudes, then in music, at least, pianists have the edge: 10 fingers theoretically capable of 10 different simultaneous paths for the music to take. Of course, it's not that simple.

Less and More

Less and More


Sometimes you feel like a splurge, and sometimes you don’t. But even when you’re feeling more like Scrooge than a big spender, you still don’t want to settle for crapola for dinner. It just means you have to think a little more creatively about where and how to eat. So here’s something for local newcomers to consider: true, Boston has plenty of worldclass, big-ticket eateries, but it also has more than its share of places to eat where the bill for two can be under $40, excluding the bar tab.

Of course, ethnic restaurants are dependably cheap eats. Good food, fast service, fair prices.

Jill Tomich@Night


When Jill Tomich isn’t whipping her clients into shape as an instructor for Ultimate Bootcamp (a company she cofounded), she’s working on her own physique, training for one of many fitness competitions. The former architectural designer ditched her old job to start Ultimate Bootcamp because her passions were deeply rooted in staying fit and active. Unfortunately, that means she occasionally has to avoid her absolute biggest temptation: eating at her favorite Boston restaurants. But on the nights she’s not training, she hits the town with her fiancé, Josh.
