DORCHESTER - Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows, and a tough economy apparently acquaints a cafe with a florist. The Dorchester Reporter says that the cafe Dot2Dot has merged with a local florist that was forced to close due to financial woes. Thus far it's been a boon to both. [DR via BRT]

ROXBURY - The Haley House Bakery Cafe in Dudley Square is hosting its fourth annual Boston Souper Bowl.

Tickets are $30, can be purchased here, and include a handcrafted ceramic bowl from the Clay for Change program at MassArt. [Official Site]

STATEWIDE - It's been a lousy year for ice fishing. Temperatures have been so warm that the annual Bristol County Ice Masters Ice Fishing Tournament on Monponsett Pond in Halifax was canceled. [BG]
