SOMERVILLE - Finally, a way to drink soda without drinking soda.

"There are no villains to battle or impossible tasks to conquer. Users can acquire 'bonus sodas,' but as Brierly explained, 'they just boost your morale. They don't do anything.'" [BH]

BACK BAY - There was a Tufts event at the Westin Copley Place called "Winter Bash" and it was a big, hot mess. Citations have been issued to the hotel. [UniversalHUB]
