Fusion, flavor, finger food… and fun!
The unique part is that all dishes are to be eaten without utensils. So, naturally, my curiosity was ignited by the listing of a “Caesar-ish Salad” on the menu. I mean, who eats salad with bare hands?
After you die...
Set to a techno-rock soundtrack that makes you want to put on a skeleton costume and dance, MTG’s rendition of Jasper in Deadland hits all the right spots.
Be our guest, be our guest, be our guest!
It’s a tale as old as time.
Rumor has it…
Eight overdramatic men and women, a suicidal deputy mayor, and an unruly gun converge one night during a fated anniversary party. We all know what ensues: Rumors galore.
BSO continues its 2018-19 season under the fantastic dramatism of director Andris Nelsons, with the fantastic dramatism of – cue dun-dun-dun-DUN… Beethoven!
That’s one big wall
Alex Honnold did the unimaginable — he free soloed El Capitán for the very first time, climbing to the top without ropes at all…

MIT MTG puts on a performance to remember in their rendition of 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat', including pillows, cookies and milk, and rainbow bedtime stories galore!
‘My finished sculpture is born of nothing but a handful of pipe cleaners and my imagination’
Pipe cleaners may seem childish to use in art — but to me, they are colorful and comforting, flexible and versatile, and there are no boundaries to what I can create with a few fuzzy sticks.
Happy theater, sad theater, weird theater

The two-hour show is filled with color, spazztastic music and moves, and enough hooting and howling from the fanatical audience to fill up the MIT night scene.
“Urine” for a good show

Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
As the lights dim in La Sala on the second floor of the Stud, the spotlight focuses on a quiet scene in fair Verona (crafted by set designer Jakob Weisblat ‘18), where the age-old tragedy of star-crossed lovers is about to unfold. With their rendition of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the MIT Shakespeare Ensemble brings forth the time-worn themes of fate and free will, love and lust, that Shakespeare introduced in theaters centuries ago. The famed tragedy, directed by long-time theater veteran Francine Davis, brings the audience many laughs, tears, and the entire spectrum between the two.
Spectacular cities, visionary artists
Depending on what sort of connoisseur you are, the neoclassical-like Beaux-Arts style of architecture that Despradelle loved would have either satiated your cravings for elegance and decoration, or disgusted the modernized MIT techie inside of you.
Masterminds or brainless?
