Really Old Chocolate; NYC v. Boston Food Trucks

NORTH END - The historic Old North Church is getting a historically accurate chocolatier called Captain Jackson's Colonial Chocolate Shop, named for an actual neighborhood chocolate shop from the 1700s. Forklift says the shop will be open starting Sunday, April 14, and will remain open on weekends from 11AM to 5PM until mid-June, at which point it will be open seven days a week through October. And after that? Stay tuned. [BH]

ARLINGTON - A woman appears to have ordered a masked man to beat a Starbucks patron with "a piece of wood," says the Arlington Patch. The attack seems to have something to do with a botched barter of an iPad for a Kindle. Perhaps it was an extreme case of brand loyalty? [Patch via GS]

DOWNTOWN - The Food Truck Throwdown returns to the Greenway, pitting New York and Boston food trucks against one another in a free public event.
