Boston to test later hours for food trucks Workin’ on our night food. In response to calls from the food truck community, city officials said they plan to roll out a new pilot program. A yearlong test run kicking off on April 1 will expand hours for food trucks on Boylston Street near the Boston Public Library, Commonwealth Avenue in front of Morse Auditorium and Opera Place near Northeastern University, according to the city’s Office of Food Initiatives. Currently, food trucks in Boston’s residential areas may only remain open until 9 p.m., while trucks in more urban areas are allowed to serve until

11 p.m. The 11 p.m. to midnight time period is a bustling one for night owl Bostonians, which is why law enforcement has hesitated to expand hours. “It’s that time period when people are out and have had a good amount to drink, and there is the possibility of them engaging in an argument,” said Edith Murnane, director of the Office of Food Initiatives. “With food trucks being outdoors, [food trucks] could be a natural magnet for that,” said Murnane. But if Bostonians can behave themselves over the next year, they could be rewarded with an expansion of the later hours. The pilot program comes as a local Boston food blogger is petitioning for more food trucks in Boston. Last month, Steven Lei-

Quoted

“One of the nice things about the launch of the food truck season is that it reminds people to get outside. Some of our best times here in Boston are the times that we spend living in the public space.” Edith Murnane Office of Food Initiatives

bowitz created a Change.org petition asking Mayor Marty Walsh to broaden the city’s food truck program. Nearly 300 people had signed it as of Monday night. While Leibowitz said spots like Downtown Crossing, Fenway and TD Garden deserve food trucks, Murnane said

the inclusion of food trucks in those areas is not impossible, but would require a lot of hashing out. The Downtown Boston Business Improvement District, the Red Sox and TD Garden, as well as law enforcement, would have a place at the table when it comes to making those decisions, she said. “It’s a slightly more complex issue than just putting a food truck in those areas,” Murnane said. “But one of the best things about Boston is its civic engagement. I love getting these [petitions]. The more people that give input, the better I’m able to go to the TD Garden or the Red Sox and say, ‘How do we go about getting a food truck in this area?’” MORGAN ROUSSEAU @METROMORGAN

Catholic school drops out of Saint Patrick’s parade Meeting. MassEquality officials met with Mayor Walsh and parade organizers, but no agreement was reached.

Besides being unsightly and uncomfortable, varicose veins can be a warning sign of a condition called Venous Insufficiency that claims over half a million lives each year.

BOSTON

As discussions between a statewide LGBT advocacy group and the organizers of South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade continued, a Catholic school from Harvard has decided to drop out because of efforts to make the parade more inclusive to pro-gay organizations. MassEquality said on Monday that it has applied, as it had in years past, to march in the South Boston parade, and was denied this year. But at Mayor Marty Walsh’s urging, a meeting took place Sunday night between the group, Rep. Stephen Lynch and the parade’s organizer.

St. Patrick’s Day revelers. NICOLAUS CZARNECKI, METRO

“We made it clear to the parade organizers that we would only march if LGBT people are able to march openly and honestly,” MassEquality Executive Director Kara Coredini said in a statement on Monday. “No agreement was reached, but the conversation is ongoing.” At issue is that parade organizers are willing to allow

groups to march, but to do so without any signs or displays referencing gay advocacy or sexual orientation. One group that supports gay rights, the South Boston Association of Non-Profits, said it will adhere to those conditions and will march, according to the Globe. That move to allow a pro-gay group to march led to the Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Harvard dropping out of the parade after participating for nearly 25 years. Walsh has said he will only march in an “inclusive” parade. Former Mayor Thomas Menino did not march in the parade. The Allied War Veterans Council, which puts on the parade, won a 1995 U.S. Supreme Court decision that allowed the private group to exclude gay, lesbian and other groups from the parade.

Lady Gaga and Stevie Nicks chatted it up at the magazine’s West Hollywood fete. Gaga had a distinctly Veronica Lake vibe in her cut-out gown while Stevie Nicks channeled, well, Stevie Nicks. America’s goofy sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence, changed out of her Dior gown for this Tom Ford mini. She was later snapped chatting with comedy god Larry David while drinking a glass of white wine. Another comedy god, Bill Murray, talked with Academy Award nominee Julie Delpy. Steven Tyler and a stunning Rita Ora also turned up.

Books. A new young adult novel is taking over. Sally Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Half-Badâ&#x20AC;? just came out today and it has already been sold in 45 countries, turned into a trilogy and optioned for a movie by Fox. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already completely over â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hunger Gamesâ&#x20AC;? and need something to hold you over until â&#x20AC;&#x153;Divergentâ&#x20AC;? hits theaters, this is it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Half-Badâ&#x20AC;? is about a 16-year-old boy named Nathan, who lives in a cage and is being trained to kill. Living among humans

are witches, some purely good and some horrendously evil, with Nathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father being the worst of the worst. To survive, Nathan needs to escape his keepers, find his father and receive three gifts that will bring him his own magical powers. Bucking the trend of YA novels set in a futuristic dystopia, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Half-Badâ&#x20AC;? is set in modern-day England. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The book is [dystopian] in a way, but to be honest I never really believed it was going to be

published, so my idea was just to write the book I would want to read if I was 15 or 16,â&#x20AC;? Green tells us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in my mind about what the market needed or didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need.â&#x20AC;? Green is at work on the second book, which she says is much more daunting than writing the first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was in a bit of a panic to get the first words down,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the first 10,000 words, then I relaxed into it.â&#x20AC;?

Split finger fastball

Peavy slices finger with knife Without question, starter Jake Peavy has had the strangest offseason of any Red Sox player. It began with Peavy purchasing a Duck Boat during Boston’s championship parade and ended in less desirable fashion as he sliced open his left index finger, on his non-throwing hand, with a fishing knife last Saturday. The fiery righty said that he cut the digit on a fishing trip with his son. “I promised my little boy I would take him fishing so we went to Bass Pro [Shops] and we bought us some rods and reels,” Peavy told WEEI. com’s Rob Bradford. “[The injury happened] trying to cut the wire tie that was holding them together. Using the knife with my right hand and holding the rod with my left, and when I broke the wire tire it struck the knuckle pretty good.” Peavy isn’t expected to miss much time due to the injury.

“This could be the year” was one of the more optimistic rallying cries for Red Sox fans every March for the 80-plus springs that preceded 2004. It was all about that elusive crown back then. But after three World Series championships in nine years, the tone has changed a tad, and Sox fans are beginning to get greedy. Sure, they want their October cake each and every season, but now they want to eat it as well. This window dressing is “The Rivalry,” and it seems as though executives at ESPN, TBS and FOX aren’t the only ones clamoring for a Red Sox-Yankees rivalry revival today. Yes, the fatigue has finally worn off. Let’s be honest, “Red Sox-Yankees” hasn’t been “Red Sox-Yankees” for quite some time now. The back-andforth banter between front offices has not been nearly as prevalent or relevant since George Steinbrenner passed away in 2010. The on-field hatred has been non-existent for nearly a decade — save for that minor incident last August when Ryan Dempster played a version of dunk tank with Alex Rodriguez’s torso. The problem

there was that Dempster’s beanball marathon with A-Rod was celebrated by nearly as many Yankees fans as Red Sox fans at the time. The 2009 season was perhaps the last time Sox-Yanks felt like “something.” Not coincidentally, the Yankees

won the World Series that year and the Red Sox fielded a 95win second place team. But the worn-down Sox were swept in the ALDS by the Angels and another ALCS between the bitter rivals never took place. For my money, Sox-Yanks hasn’t truly felt like Sox-Yanks since 2006. That was the year the Yankees came into Fenway in August and completed a mega-sweep of the Sox, winning all five games of a five-game series. Playing in that series for the Yankees were true hardball heels like Johnny Damon, Jason Giambi, Jorge Posada and Randy Johnson. Likewise, New York fans couldn’t stand the sight of Kevin Youkilis, Manny Ramirez, Curt Schilling or Josh Beckett at the time. Lately, when the Red Sox and Yankees meet, it’s been hatred in laundry only. Shane Victorino, Daniel Nava and Koji Uehara may get booed in the Bronx and Lyle Overbay, Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki and Hiroki Kuroda may have been jeered in Boston last year. But those types don’t exactly “move the dial,” as they say in the biz. So, one could say that we are due for some solid SoxYanks storylines. Fortunately, 2014 will be filled with some legitimate subplots. Jacoby Ellsbury turned his back on Boston and landed in New York. The Yankees, after saying they weren’t going to spend big, returned to their roots and spent big. Red Sox fans will be able to walk into Yankee Stadium all summer, saying that they are the defending champions and the Yankees are the ones with a title drought. Derek Jeter is retiring and his last regular season game is scheduled for Sept. 28 at Fenway. Yankees president Randy Levine and Sox CEO Larry Lucchino are even bickering again, with Levine recently saying that Lucchino is “spooked by the Yankees.” All is good. But most important, both teams are expected to be good this year. VegasInsider.com has the Yankees at 12-1 odds to win it all. Immediately behind them are the defending champs at 15-1. It’s been 10 years since the last Boston-New York ALCS and it’s high time we run it back. Finally, this could be the year.
