The Week in Eater: Non-Pizza Edition

In case you missed the tiny nuggets of non-pizza news hidden amongst the Pizza Week 2014 craziness all week long, here's a recap. (And if you missed any of the pizza, that'll be recapped separately next week, so keep an eye out.) Know about something we missed this week? Got intel for next week? Just want to say hello? Hit up the Eater Boston tipline or send an anonymous tip. You can also stay in touch with us on Twitter and Facebook, share photos on Flickr, and get the weekday newsletter.
