grew up riding my bicycle for fun. My father and I would take a ferry out to an island off the coast of Maine and ride until sunset. On weekends we’d set off from our country home and pedal back roads until my little legs couldn’t take any more. Now, I ride my bike for commuting purposes. It’s not the easiest ride up Plantation Street and crossing Route 9 during rush-hour traffic, but I do it because it means that I get to spend more time outside and reduce my carbon footprint. I discovered a program at the beginning of the summer that awards me for leaving my car at home. It’s called NuRide and it’s available to all Massachusetts residents. Like the training wheels I started with 22 years ago, this program is a baby step to a much larger, more efficient Worcester. NuRide is for residents who want equality in their city, for businesses to sustain themselves locally and for everyone who knows the future will only be sustainable if we start changing our ways — starting with commuting — now.

Because the students did not take protecting incumbents into account, they probably did a better job than what the legislators will churn out.

Occupy Worcester debates their next move n a recent Thursday night, 15 college students and lifelong activists with ages ranging from 20 to 60 years old gathered in an Albert Street apartment swept up in the Occupy movement. There they discussed how to bring the populist energy to Worcester. The group facilitators have a meeting agenda scribbled on a white board: introductions, team building, visions and goals for the local group, when and where to establish the first general assembly, media outreach and next steps. The introductions are short, with many citing the same issues that occupiers on Wall Street and in Boston have cited: heavy student-loan burdens, a stagnant economy and Wall Street executives avoiding punishment from the 2008 downturn. (By the time of the first two general assemblies a few days later, participants added the high foreclosure rate and money’s influence in politics.) Many are curious to see where the movement will go. Others offer general but altogether universal sentiments. “A big part that draws me toward this movement is I know I’m not alone in thinking things are fucked up,” offered Randi Whitney, one of the first to organize the local Occupy movement. “I have a strong sense that the regular people of Worcester are ready to respond to something like this,” said Chris Horton, an activist involved in the Worcester Anti-Foreclosure Team. “I have never seen in my lifetime anything like the current mood of the people.” The group moves on to talk about “process,” the jargon and hand signals they use to make sure everyone – literally, everyone – is on board with each decision and giving everyone with something to say the opportunity to say it. It develops slowly, taking nearly an hour just for the group to settle on a location and time for their first meeting, but involvement and discussion trump speed. In fact, it has as many interruptions and pontifications as your average citycouncil meeting. (Four days later, at Worcester’s first general assembly on the common, Whitney explains why the long slog is worth it: “When you do reach consensus on something it’s so gratifying that you have everyone’s support.”) Other than settling on logistics – it’s later agreed to choose Sunday, October 9 at 1:30 p.m. on the common behind Worcester City Hall as the time and location of the general assembly – the

group spends time discussing their goals. With a fear of alienating those with more moderate political sensibilities, the group shies away from statements that could be perceived as radical or anarchist. Word spreads via like-minded community groups and existing email listservs. @OccupyWorcester and the hashtag #OccupyWorcester appear on Twitter, and Facebook invites are sent out. Just fewer than 200 people show up for what ends up as the second Occupy Worcester general assembly (another group, unbeknownst to many organizers, staged a similar assembly the day before), gathering on the Common. People of all ages and professions attend, and there’s a clear effort by organizers to periodically mention that they’re aware that some demographics don’t have much of a voice – either in society or at this rally. But it’s not just white college students with bandanas. Teachers, professors, immigrant families and white-collar professionals have staked out some ground. Other than a motorcycle cop driving through the common before the event starts and rumors of two plain-clothes officers hanging back on a park bench, there’s no visible police presence. The assembly starts and facilitators explain the hand signals to the crowd. Those who speak do so in short phrases, so that the crowd can act as the “peoples’ mic” by repeating everything back to them, thereby eliminating the need for amplification (a particularly handy trick in cities where permits must be obtained to use megaphones or PA systems). While the meme circulating through media and Occupy naysayers lazily portrays these groups as “unfocused” or “unorganized,” time spent in the actual assembly shows a different side. Without a microphone and no one clear leader, the 200 people ably divide into 10 small groups to each pinpoint some goals or agenda items for the larger group to focus on. Each group sends an ambassador to present their list to the entire Occupy. Other Occupies, notably Boston and Wall Street, have developed their own communities that have come from these agenda meetings. “There’s a fully functional community there,” says Martin Driggs, a WPI grad living in Boston and New Bedford, but who’s bounced between the Boston and Worcester Occupies. These services include medical, sanitation, donation collection, legal services, arts and culture and even a nondenominational spiritual site. Driggs laughs that the Occupy in Dewey Square has engaged the city to the point that

Occupy Worcester assembles Monday on the Common. it’s now a feature on the Duck Tours – and tour drivers publicly give the demonstrators support as they drive by. As the groups discuss, a few Tea Party members look on. They politely decline invitations to join a group. Ken Mandile, Worcester Tea Party organizer, sees a fair comparison between the Occupy protesters and the Tea Party protesters. “I think it’s fair. People are angry, not happy with political parties, Washington, D.C., unions, the education system, similar things that spurred the Tea Party on.” He notes a few “End the Fed” signs, a staple at Tea Party rallies. But he’s quick to point out they’re not too similar: both groups are “looking for completely different solutions,” he says, pigeonholing Tea Party philosophy for individual rights while Occupiers “want to rub the individual out and have consensus on everything.” Yes and no. Yes, that most proposals by the small groups dealt with vagaries and over-arching reforms—limiting money’s influence in politics, corporate control of media, the cost of health care—but the humanist approach of the movement found personalization in the anecdotes. One teenager, diagnosed with Leukemia as a kid, now had $1.2 million in medical bills to pay off. Another woman had to

choose between sending her daughter to college and paying her mortgage. She chose the former, but now worries about how she’ll send her other three kids to school. The nearly four-hour meeting comes to a close with a proposal to meet Monday, Columbus Day, at 5 p.m. on the common. About half as many attend as the day before, but the group focuses specifically on what Occupy Worcester’s next move should be. “We know what other cities are up to. What resources do we have? What does Worcester need?” asks facilitator Aria diSalvo.

One by one, demonstrators make suggestions. Some look at supporting the movement as a whole by offering support to other nearby Occupies, while others try to localize the movement. Proposals whittle down to making a todo list with tasks like sending supplies to Boston or perform outreach, have regular demonstrations during the day, or occupy an actual area of the city (Crystal Park is floated as a possible location). “I don’t have a way to get here unless my mom drives me here on her way to work at 10 p.m.,” says a shy girl from Southbridge. “However I will do anything I can to support an occupation.”

With word coming Monday night that the second Occupy Boston camp would be taken apart by police, Worcesterites debated how they would aide the group 50 miles east. Some asked if they should be invited to come to Worcester and help set up an occupation here. As of Tuesday morning, no decision had been made. Another attendee saw some coincidence in this, noting that famous publisher Isiah Thomas, under pressure from British Loyalists, moved his printing press from Boston to Worcester. If Occupy Boston relocates to Worcester, she said, “The ideas of the revolution will have come fullcircle.” At the end of the three-hour meeting no consensus was reached on an actual occupation, but the group agreed to demonstrate on Saturday to coincide with the “International Day of Action in Solidarity with Occupy Wall Street,” starting at Clark University at 2 p.m. and marching downtown at 3 p.m. Other members pledged to work with the Worcester Anti-Foreclosure Team to stop an auction later in the week. Members of Occupy Worcester have floated between the Common and Occupy Boston, bringing news and updates between the two, and as of press time Occupy Worcester didn’t have consensus on its

associating the area with illicit activity and filth. “District 4 has been defined by all the negativity,” she says. “The crime and grime…we’re beyond that.” “Homeowners are tired of hearing about how bad our neighborhood is…It’s going to affect us economically and that’s not something we can afford.” Haller believes “neighborhood by neighborhood” District 4 has improved but “pockets of serious problems” still exist, maintaining that the district’s to-do list includes curbing prostitution, drug trafficking and housing and homelessness issues – she says she’s contacted most often by constituents because of those problems. And while Rivera and her supporters believe anti-incumbent fever has swept Worcester, Haller has put up her experience and tenure will attract voters. She considers herself a “full-time” councilor who has focused on CORI reform, curbing prostitution, dealing with problem properties and creating awareness around level-3 sex offenders (District 4 has the greatest concentration in the city) by bringing the right people together to talk.



“[City administration] trusts me to bring them accurate information to work together,” she says. She points to a council that will already have two new faces – if not more – in 2012. “My opportunity to help lead the council over the next term will be substantial,” she says. Rivera contends that Haller’s work has been too Main South focused, that the district residents and business owners on Highland Street, near the Auburn town line and in Green Island haven’t seen benefits like the Main Street corridor. She says she connects with all parts of District 4 and will represent geographic “communities that haven’t had a voice or haven’t been heard.” For her part, Haller highlights work she’s done to secure CSX monies to renovate Elm Park, pushing for a recent council decision that prioritized funding to fix chronic property flooding in Green Island and navigating various permitting issues between residents and the city across her district. “There’s not a piece of District 4 that I haven’t been working on.” The race’s hype has led to much speculation for election day, and discussion among political watchers about

who has who for a base and how many of them will actually go vote on November 8. O’Sullivan wonders what a subdued Joe O’Brien candidacy means for Haller and Rivera. In 2009 O’Brien and Haller, who are neighbors, ran two distinct campaigns that still showed public support for one another. This year, with O’Brien now out of the mayor’s race, do less voters head to the polls – and of those voters that he does or would draw, how would they split between Haller and Rivera? Low preliminary turnout in District 4 also concerns both candidates. According to Ksen the number of voters age 30 and younger came in around 6 percent. Haller points to District 1 and says it’s all about turnout. “If the district votes, then I’m likely to be elected. If the district doesn’t, then I won’t.”

OCCUPY continued from page 7

response to the Boston Police Department’s raid of the protesters camped out on the Rose Kennedy Greenway at 1:30 am Tuesday morning. Occupy Worcester isn’t hinging its future on Boston. It’s not even following the exact footsteps of the other hundreds of Occupy locations around the world. A note to casual observers who churn out the same lazy dismissals that the group lacks focus: it’s not that they’re lacking a singular message, but that so many of them want to see so much change that consensus will take some time to work it all out.

{ worcesteria } SUPER-SECRET DECISIONS: Before the council candidates were directly asked at debates whether or not they would support extending Superintendent Melinda Boone’s contract, some current schoolcommittee members had already started a push to get it done as soon as possible. School-committee members who were asked about the move said they could no longer comment, which only means one thing: it’ll be discussed in an upcoming executive session… Incumbents who have publicly said they support an extension include Jack Foley, John Monfredo and Mary Mullaney, with Brian O’Connell supporting a two-year extension because Boone offered a five-year plan to which he would like hold her accountable. Only challenger Hilda Ramirez offered an unequivocal answer to the question at the Chamber of Commerce-hosted debate Tuesday night, saying she would support the extension while challenger Todd Salmonsen called the negotiations “disingenuous” and said a one-year extension should be provided to afford time for the new committee to deliberate it.

RUMORIZING: There’s no shortage of gossip floating through the storied masonry of city hall, but a rumor gets elevated to Maybe Possibly True status when some of the building’s most plugged-in officials have all heard the same thing – in this case, a big reward to human resources director Kathy Johnson, someone who earned much praise from boss City Manager Michael O’Brien and city councilors for her work in union and municipal healthcare negotiations in the spring. A city spokesperson said she hadn’t heard that rumor, but thought people might be confusing her upcoming one-week stint as acting city manager while O’Brien is on vacation.


Department of Revenue-ordered revaluation process of the city’s residential and commercial properties has changed slightly since last week when it came out that the city would issue a request for proposal for an independent contractor to double check the city’s valuation of 33,000 residential properties, but the remaining 15,000 commercial properties would be done in-house, an arrangement that concerned both the Chamber of Commerce and Joan Crowell, the one person Worcesterites can thank for holding city hall accountable for increased valuations (and probably why DOR even got involved). By Tuesday the city announced that both residential and commercial properties would be done by independent groups. City officials have done a savvy job of spinning this revaluation as fortuitous – a way to prove their values were correct. But in a moment of watchdogs lying down, no city councilor questioned how much this “quadruple check” will cost taxpayers. Two RFPs for four months of work won’t be cheap.

A WORCESTER ACADEMY STUDENT KNOWS WHAT THIS MEANS. It means ‘pursuing excellence.’ And, these days, that means preparing our students for leadership roles in a rapidly changing world. By offering Mandarin. By collaborating with a partner school in Denmark on biotechnology and public policy. By creating a challenging, safe, inclusive environment where students from over 20 countries learn and grow, side by side, on our historic urban campus. And help shape the future of our local community. We offer ‘classrooms without walls’ because real world experience is an important part of the curriculum. And a five-day boarding program, because campus life is, too. It’s not just lip service. Academic excellence is an honored tradition at Worcester Academy. And has been since 1834.

the election,” said Public Health subcommittee chair Phil Palmieri at the first of many hearings to discuss an ordinance that would allow city residents to tend to up to five hens on their property. Attendees spoke overwhelmingly about allowing people to locally source and produce their own food and minimized fears about neglectful chicken owners. Critics believe chickens will attract rats and coyotes, and a representative of the police department said it would overwhelm the city’s two animal control officers.

FREEDOM OF SIGN: No one has ever accused Steve Quist — better known on the WoMag and T&G comment boards and radio airwaves as “Q” — of subtlety. It makes sense, then, that the man’s outspoken politics extend to his front yard, where he’s been staking political lawn signs for years. Times have changed though, particularly because of the massive sign ordinance passed earlier this year. With Quist’s display of electoral endorsements covering 200 square feet, he’s well beyond the city’s 64-square-foot limit. Inspectional Services has taken note, sending him a certified letter on Friday giving him seven days to “cease and desist” – in other words, shrink the signage or face fines of up to $300 per day. Quist says this infringes on his free-speech rights and he plans to fight it. “This flies in the face of what government should do,” he said. Inspectional Services did not return a phone call put in last week. To see a picture of Quist’s house, check out this column at

Red Light District Almost every major light in Worcester now has the cameras on them. Back in March when the lights were first being installed I was in a nasty accidemt caused by one of these cameras. At the intersection of Highland and rte 70, the guy in front of me suddenly slammed on his breaks on a light that just turned yellow. I was driving a heavy truck and couldnt stop as fast as him and slammed into him. The guy gets out of his vehicle and says “I had to stop there was a camera” Yes I should have been further back.. but the point is the accident was cuased by the camera! How can you say these cameras save so much money when they also cause so many accidents. Lots of drivers panic when they see a camera and make very dangerous moves to stop in time.

Harvey: It is what it is Thanks so much for this article. The term “forcible rape” is ridiculous and hateful. Women have enough trouble being taken seriously if they get up the courage to report an assault that the last thing we need is victim-blaming terminology on the books. The idea of “forcible” rape is pure misogyny and reinforces the idea that some victims’ experiences are more legitimate than others. The vast majority of rapes don’t involve a stranger and a gun to the head. It is still rape if your husband/wife coerces you. It is still rape if your date goads you into getting a little too drunk. It is still rape if s/he’s significantly older or related. It is still rape if it isn’t vaginal penetration (I’m guessing men can’t be “forcibly raped” by the FBI’s definition). It’s rape as long as you feel raped. This is disgusting because it further shames and silences victims. Women are taught not to get raped while men are not taught not to rape (just don’t be too “violent” about it). Submitted online by VA N E S SA

The Rosen


The next question on bake sales goes to Mr. Rosen Gary Rosen


hank goodness I’m not running for school committee. Although I’m a graduate of our city’s public schools, a former teacher at Doherty High and a past five-term school board member, I no longer am familiar with all of the issues and challenges facing the Worcester Public Schools. Last week I attended the school committee candidates’ forum sponsored by a new and needed group, The Initiative for Engaged Citizenship. The immediate goal of its more than two dozen member organizations is to get out the vote, which probably is an impossible task in a city where more than 91 percent of registered voters stayed home for September’s preliminary election. Since the school department spends almost 60 percent of the entire city budget, who’s elected to the school committee is important. So I was glad to see more than 100 people in the forum’s audience. Sure many of them—teen members of Worcester’s activist group HOPE Coalition (Healthy Options for Prevention and Education)—are too young to vote. But it’s never too early to start civics education especially at a time when our public schools have substituted MCAS preparation and testing for real

teaching and learning. Unfortunately the six school committee incumbents and their four challengers have run quiet and low-profile campaigns so most voters have little idea what the pressing issues are. But the questions asked of the candidates at this school committee forum reflect how our schools, students and the issues have changed since I served on the school committee from 1986 to 1995. Back then parents, residents and voters asked what we would do to retain programs for gifted students and to keep middle-class families from fleeing the public schools. They were worried that our proposed de-isolation plan would prevent their children from attending their neighborhood schools. Many people wanted to know where we stood on bilingual education, while others questioned special-education funding. And in response to the stabbing death of a student by a classmate inside South High in 1989, the school committee on which I sat adopted a strong and unyielding weapons policy. But the timely issues raised and questions posed at this school committee forum seemed to me to be much more complex and difficult than the aforementioned ones. I had to laugh when a friend of mine turned to me and said that most of continued on next page

The City Councilors won’t ask how much the revaluation of our property is going to cost, but they have have time to discuss if we need chickens in our backyards. These are FOWL times at City Hall.

Road Trippin’ EB Flatt’s is a gem out here in the Brookfield’s, but here’s a few more reasons to come out and check out some of the fantastic food they serve: Breakfast - their Egg’s Benedict with the Tomato and Bacon totally will change you mind from the traditional version. Lunch - their Patty Melts are very tasty, and while the regular fries aren’t anything special their sweet potato fries are deliciously different. Dinner- EB Flatt’s becomes a totally different restaurant on Thurs/Fri/Sat with their dinner service. Much different from the breakfast/lunch thing they do the rest of the week. The prices are higher, but the selections warrant the increase and it’s comparable to most of the fine dining establishments around Worcester. Just because it’s in the Brookfield’s doesn’t mean it isn’t good (thank goodness for that!). I live in East Brookfield, and I am proud to have EB Flatt’s out here. But please don’t come out here, it’ll only make it that much harder to get a table when I’m hungry! Submitted online from JE RE M Y

To tell you the truth, I didn’t even hear about it.

the candidates were pandering to the crowd. I set him straight by telling him politicians call it knowing your audience. In any case, today’s school committee candidates suggested strategies to close the racial academic achievement gap, train teachers to be more culturally competent, involve students in policymaking, lighten the student load of guidance counselors, and close the school to prison pipeline. One of the more interesting questions dealt with changing the school system’s zero-tolerance policy for bad behavior. I was disappointed to hear an incumbent suggest that our strong, effective and unyielding weapons policy of 1989 might need to be softened. And one of the challengers suggested that the school system should ease up on discipline. Sure, do these, and watch the enrollments of area private and parochial schools soar. Too old-school on some of the new-school issues, I’m just trying to understand the complex problems facing today’s schools, administrators, teachers and students. But I’m not running for school committee. Thankfully some capable and engaged incumbents and challengers are. So why not show up at the polls on November 8 and vote for up to six of them. And while there, vote NO on the city council’s meddling and misguided attempt to add district members to the school board.


It’s just another way to show that the stuffed shirts make most of the money in this economy and there’s no room for the workingman. Political chaos.

Nick Romero SOUTHBRIDGE I understand the general frustrations that these people have. I thought it was interesting that Governor Patrick compared them to the early demonstrations done by the Tea Party. I’m curious to see where it goes.

NuRide offers Worcester incentives to change


• OCTOBER 13, 2011

Brittany Durgin

On a recent weekday, as I’m riding home from our Water Street office upon my Schwinn steelframe bicycle, a taxi cab slows down next to me and the driver, window down, yells “get off the road!” Apparently by riding on the white line to the left of the road interferes with his right-turn-only lane.

{ coverstory } I swallow the “fuck you asshole!” on the tip of my tongue, and instead, as I come to a stop at the red light at the Grafton Street intersection, I calmly inform him that “actually, I have the same rights to the road as you.”


Admit it; many of you have done this before. We get behind the wheel of a car or truck and the road becomes our own. We don’t want to share the road, we’re pissed off at the idiots who obviously don’t know how to drive a vehicle and are now holding us up with their fender bender, and we certainly don’t care if speeding past grandma on the straightaway burns up extra fuel.

Yet something has changed for me. I’ve spent the last four months as a member of NuRide, an award program for green efforts. What it has done for me – and hundreds of others in Worcester – is get me out of my car and into the community, sharing space with our neighbors while at the same time working toward an environmentally sustainable future. As a NuRide member, I have an account online ( where I log the trips I take on my bicycle, use public transit, carpool or when I bust my ass in the office for four days straight to take Friday off and save on a day’s commute. What do I get other than a warm, fuzzy feeling for being good to the planet? I get points. For instance, I receive 100 points each way for helping to reduce congestion by leaving my car at home and riding my bike to work. Or if I carpool, I receive points for reducing my carbon footprint. Points can be redeemed for restaurant coupons, retailer discounts and tickets for attractions. NuRide was first launched in Washington D.C. in 2004 as a way to address traffic and emissions issues. NuRide’s concern is that too many Americans are spending

too much money on fuel and emitting a dangerous amount of pollutants into our air by driving solo and using vehicles for trips that could otherwise be carried out with more economical and greener forms of transportation. By encouraging and awarding the use of public transit, riding a bicycle, walking and telecommuting or working a compressed work week, NuRide hopes to reduce the number of cars and trucks on the roads, in turn reducing traffic congestion and emissions, and aims to save you money while cleaning up the air we breathe. But wait, what about the swarm of hipsters riding around on mopeds that get 90 to 100 miles to the gallon or the ecominded adult with the scooter getting a similar amount? Even a motorcycle or hybrid car is a more environmentally friendly choice than a F150, but NuRide vice president of operations Eve Stokes says while NuRide is thrilled to see the use of more efficient motorized vehicles, they’re still on the road, in traffic, causing congestion while increasing the amount of emissions compared to roads with freer moving traffic. continued on page 14



continued from page 13


It makes sense for Massachusetts to be one of six states that partner with NuRide. Our state legislature has been warming to the idea that transitioning to



{ coverstory } more efficient forms of transportation will benefit everyone. The Climate Protection and Green Economy Act, signed by Governor Patrick in 2008, aims to reach a greenhouse gas emission reduction of 10 to 25 percent of what it was in 1990 by 2020 and a reduction of 80 percent by 2050. The 80 percent reduction would allow Massachusetts to boastfully join other New England states Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont

Worcester area businesses such as the EcoTarium (top), One Love Café (above) and the 5 and Diner (opposite page) all offer discounts or special offers with the redemption of NuRide points.

with emitting less than 20 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, compared to the 94.4 MMTCO2e emitted in 1990, based on 2009 Emissions from Fossil Fuel Combustion report by the Environmental Protection Agency. MassRIDES, a travel options initiative run by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, suggests green ways to commute to residents statewide. MassRIDES features NuRide in several locations on its site, including on the homepage. Rebecca Cyr, communications coordinator for MassRIDES, says since the launch of the partnership with NuRide in January of this year, more than 6,400 Bay State residents have signed on to NuRide, including MassRIDES Worksite Service partners which are organizations working with MASSRIDES to offer their employees and students green travel options. She hopes to see this number grow. In Worcester, Worksite Service partners UMass Medical School, UMass Memorial Hospital, Quinsigamond Community College and Hanover Insurance Group

currently have the most active members participating in NuRide. According to MassRIDES, these users, along with the thousands of others statewide, have saved the state of Massachusetts alone 9.9 million vehicle miles, more than 460,000 gallons of gas and lowered emissions by more than 4,600 tons by using NuRide. To sign up, users must be at least 18 years of age and give NuRide their home and commute address so the system can calculate the user’s energy savings while also listing them in an interactive directory for other NuRiders to find and contact through e-mail about possible ride shares. NuRide has not yet partnered with transportation departments in every state, however if one’s commute destination is in a partnering state while their residence is not, they may still participate in NuRide and earn rewards. Before NuRide launched in Massachusetts last September, 400 Connecticut residents who commute into the Bay State were already logging trips, earning points and redeeming them for discounts in partnering state Connecticut. Working at Worcester Mag, I have a


wacky schedule of leaving home before sunrise some mornings and some days not leaving the office until 7 p.m. or later; not to mention the days I have to travel out of town for interviews and take photos for stories. So for me, riding my bike as much as I can makes sense — where carpooling just wasn’t an option. Yet for individuals with normal nine-to-five schedules, using NuRide to find neighbors to carpool with seems only sensible. This could be your chance to talk with the attractive brunette who lives two blocks down the street, a much better choice of morning entertainment than a morning radio show. Yet participating in NuRide encouraged me to take alternative transportation that I normally wouldn’t consider – such as the bus. There was never a reason to take public transit when I could either walk or ride my bike, but hell, it earns me points and gives me an inside look at the WRTA, so why not. For the first 10 minutes of the ride, the young man driving and I chatted about his life as a bus driver. After learning that I was not a teenager – as he first presumed – he asked me if I had ever been to a Spanish dance club and preceded to let me know which one he worked at in the city, which nights and ensured me if I came down, it would be a good time. Even though we didn’t exchange digits, I walked off the bus at City Hall that morning with a smirk on my face. Katie Lacasse, a Ph.D. student at Clark University studying social psychology with a concentration on environmental behaviors, helped explained my sudden decision for taking the bus when I had a perfectly fine bicycle at my disposal. “Driving a car is a cultural symbol. Once people are willing to break out of that [and try a different form of transportation], they’ll be more likely to try other forms of [green commutes].” After a few weeks my points started to add up. In my NuRide account I can see all rewards available to me on one page and order them by newest, popular and by the amount of points needed for each prize. Like an eight-year-old peering through a glass case containing rubber

{ coverstory } dinosaurs and stick-on tattoos with a string of yellow tickets in hand, I took my time deciding. Outside magazine for a discounted year subscription was my choice.


NuRide says it will continue

to encourage greener uses of travel, but it’s uncertain if users of the program will go beyond their ride and embark upon a fuller green lifestyle – yet this is its main objective. Lacasse says “the more reasons you give people to do something, the more likely they are to do it.” However, she says by using external reasons like rewards to dine out or see fine art, users may

not focus on the positive environmental impact that they’re making, but rather the fun activities they’re doing at a cheaper cost. NuRide gives users their fuel savings in dollar amounts, which Lacasse admits may not encourage other green lifestyle changes. She uses the example of someone who may take the bus instead of a car, but if impressed by the money saved, may not buy healthier, yet more expensive, organic produce. While it’s hard to equate the level of effort it takes to walk to the post office continued on page 16

with the value of awards offered, Lacasse notes that when rewards that people receive are not equal to the amount of effort they’re exerting, they may ask themselves, “Why am I really do this?� I know I probably could have found a better discount than the $10 off my Outside magazine subscription, but for me, I like that NuRide is the little voice in my head reminding me to do my part, even if I’m

{ coverstory } coupons are likely to get people spending money in their local economies. In the past two and a half years since I ate at One Love Cafe as a “welcome to Worcester” lunch with friend and coworker at the time Scott Zoback, I’ve done nothing but tell others to check out the independently run restaurant, while I myself hadn’t been back. Ten dollars off lunch was just enough of an incentive for me to go back, and because I physically wouldn’t be able to ride my bike back to work after eating $40 worth of food on my own, I put the coupon towards a lunch date with a strapping

young man—a win-win. Venice Fouchard, owner of independently run restaurant One Love Cafe on Main St., says she’s had several NuRiders use the coupon at her establishment, including one who brought three friends, another example of NuRide getting new customers through the door of local businesses. “I think it’s great,” says Fouchard of the NuRide program and “I hope more people use it.” Clark graduate student and NuRide user Brad McNamara also plans to use

his points at local eateries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to go there,â&#x20AC;? said McNamara to his girlfriend while walking by B.T. Smokehouse last week. The smokehouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent partnership with NuRide giving users 15% off an order of $20 or more, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the perfect excuseâ&#x20AC;? says McNamara. OneLove Cafe is also on his list of places to check out with his NuRide coupon. So what do sponsoring businesses get in return for giving coupons to green-minded folks? For starters, free exposure. I had never heard of Project Oceanologyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or several of the other participating businessesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;until I saw them listed in my list of awards available to me. While I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet, I plan to make a trip to Groton, Conn., and check out a seal watch or lighthouse tour cruise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for cheap! Because the deal is you have to buy one ticket to get a free one, Project Oceanology doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just get me through the doors, but a friend of mine who may not have heard of them before either. Businesses are given the option to restrict the number of times a reward can be redeemed, how long a reward is available and the value of the reward they offer. For those who allow users to redeem coupons as often as once a week build loyalty with their customers. NuRide reports many of their awarding partners participate for at least a year and instead of using difficult-to-guess valuepercentage coupons, many offer specific dollar amounts off a minimum purchase. Depending on a NuRiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area, they will see raffles offered on their redeemable awards. In the past, a Smugglersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Notch get-away was given to one user who only had to redeem 500 of their points to enter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always trying to meet member needs,â&#x20AC;? says Stokes. As NuRide expands into different markets, the functionality of the system changes to best serve the people and businesses continued on page 20

in that area. Since 2006, NuRide has opened registration up to a broader socioeconomic class. Instead of requiring registration verification through an e-mail address connected to an official organization such as a business or school, stay-at-home moms or those in-between jobs can now register with a Facebook account that has at least 10 friends or via text message. They’ve added more green-commuting options as qualifying for points in addition to ride shares, all updates aiming to be more inclusive in awarding those who are helping in the fight against congestion and vehicle pollution.

WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER Many of the discounts offered through NuRide encourage togetherness. Most of the museums give NuRiders free admission with the purchase of

another ticket. Many of the restaurants require a minimum purchase but offer serving sizes that would fill the stomachs of two or more people. Project Oceanology says that a survey taken by their NuRide customer’s reports 48 percent of them would bring four or more people with them to redeem their coupon. Bringing people together, saving them money and having them support local business is a framework for a sustainable community that values its quality of life. Sitting on the WRTA bus watching all walks of life get on and off at different stops along Belmont and Main streets, a sense of equality takes hold: being on this bus, on a city roadway, gives commuting options to all, not just those who can afford to own cars. Here, everyone arrives at their destination together. City infrastructure is, or should be, built for and accessible to all residents. “Towns are being smarter about their [transportation] development[s],” says Stokes. As thousands have replaced their cars with bicycles in cities such as Manhattan, the local governments have dumped large amounts of money into bike lanes, paths and even parking for bicycles. While it’s not in the foreseeable future for Worcester to spend millions on rescaping city streets with bike lanes, NuRide could play a part in bringing awareness for the need of better infrastructure to allow more accessibility to greener forms of transportation. “NuRide is a tool in a toolbox,” says Stokes. “We’re not the face of the public,” but once the cry for greater accessibility and greener commutes is made from city residents, NuRide hopes to be there to

provide aggregated data to governing bodies on a specific community’s demand for accessible alternative forms of transportation. NuRide says they’re equally concerned and goal oriented to improving air quality as they are to traffic congestion. “They’re so intrinsically joined... you can’t solve one without solving the other,” says Stokes. Frost says the EcoTarium feels good that “we are showing our support for the state’s effort to encourage individuals to do what they can to promote cleaner air, reduce traffic and be conscious of their energy use.” “I see Worcester changing but not quickly,” says McNamara. He explains that there needs to be a core culture of individuals engaging and promoting the use of alternative transportation and he simply hasn’t run into very many people who are using NuRide. He says “I’d love to see it used by everyone..It’s definitely a great system and I will continue to use it more and more.”


NuRide knows change can’t happen with just one school or business encouraging their students and employees to carpool. “The solution will come from each and every one of us doing our part,” states its mission. Honks and middle fingers coming from passing cars now seem inevitable when riding my bike. But for me, it’s worth it for the satisfaction of knowing I’m one small part of a city that is making an effort to give its residents equal rights to public space, reducing emissions during a global warming crisis and promoting healthy choices, all of which make quality of life better for all of us.

Rock & Shock Returns to Worcester Trisha J. Wooldridge

Hordes of leather- and black-clad denizens of the underworld are crawling, walking or running into Worcester’s DCU Center and the Palladium this weekend of October 1416. There will be cries of terror, thundering earthquakes, and screaming guitar strings and fans. It’s Rock & Shock time again! “I really enjoy coming to Rock & Shock because it’s New England’s horror con, and everyone we’ve met there has been great,” says Penny Dreadful, horrormovie hostess based out of Massachusetts and regular Rock & Shock guest. “This is New England’s big convention for all things monstrous and horrific, and there’s rock ‘n’ roll to boot!” Attendees to this year’s Rock & Shock get the added Shilling Shockers bonus of a free six-page preview of the upcoming comic, “Penny Dreadful’s Cauldron of Horror,” with artist Frankie Washington of Marvel Upper Dec art cards doing special signings on Sunday. The DCU Center and Palladium host the unique convention pairing the horror industry with the rock and metal music industry. Not only do attendees get to meet horror icons such as Robert Englund and William Forsythe, but they get to see music legends like Ace Frehley and attend concerts given by local bands to headliners such as Insane Clown Posse. Rock & Shock is the dark, evil love project of WAAF’s Kevin Barbare and Mass Concert’s general manager Gina Migliozzi. Based on both horror fans’ experiences at conventions, they wanted to create the unique event that is Rock & Shock. As the convention grows every year—with significantly more in 2011 than

prior years, it’s excellent reputation grows with it. “It actually makes it very tough to book the show because so many people want to come back here, year after year,” says Migliozzi. “You want to have them back, but you can’t because you have to have new people in, to keep it exciting and different.” Barbare adds, “And if we weren’t a show where they STEVEN KING

wanted to come to or had a good experience with, it would be much harder to get them to come, even if they wanted the work.” In fact, this year the convention has drawn the attention of Rhode Island’s Woodhaven Production Company, which will be hosting the world premiere of “Inkubus,” starring horror legends of Robert Englund and William Forsythe, at Rock & Shock. It’s a full red-carpet affair drawing the entire cast, the director, writers and producer. Tickets are available exclusively as giveaways, by invitation or contest. Only paid

Fall Style Insider Fall Trend Alert: COLOR BLOCKING Inspiration: a Vintage Red Vespa and the Corner Lunch.


his week’s inspiration walks the line of vintage and on-trend items. As we scoot down to the Corner Lunch on our Vespa, the silver skin of the diner car meets the bright red of the Vespa, reminding me of a look from the Fall Runways called Color Blocking.

TRANSLATION: Take a simple black dress and add blue or red pumps then finish your look with matching and brightly colored shadows on the eyes or lips. These bright pops of unexpected color are placed to carry the eye and surprise with boldness.

MUST HAVE: Black A-line skirt. The silver buttons hint of the ’60s era—modernized enough for the office or popping in at the diner for lunch. Add a lace top—you can cover it with a jacket for a cool night zipping around town—or wear it out on the town. PERFECT FIND: Handcrafted silver earrings and bracelet both drive the chrome from the Vespa right into our look. All jewelry provided by the Worcester Center for Crafts Gallery Store. Earrings bt artist Daphne Olive. COLOR: Pop the color into your shoes: these mod shoes found at Nordstrom in Natick Collection. MAKEUP: Bring a little or a lot of liner beyond your edge of your eye- for as much wing as you can handle. For your color blocking, it is best to choose one feature to focus upon. Color Block your makeup: here we have taken the blues and focused on the eyes, fading out like a peacock feather. You can really block out the lips with flesh tones and shine. HAIR: Inspired by the era of the Vespa and following trends of vintage flair seen on the pages of magazines: stylist Esme DeMello from St Cyr Salon on Park Avenue has created volume in the back, sweeping the front across for a sleek look. For a finishing touch, don’t forget to update your eyewear this season. You can always carry this fall’s trend of vintage inspiration, as seen here with glasses for the bright autumn sun. From Bello Optical on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester, the in-town style insiders’ favorite gem of the city.

Layers of Luminosity Encaustic exhibit at Clark University

Paul Grignon

United by the beguiling beauty of beeswax, a bevy of artisans present their amazingly diverse art at the Schiltkamp Gallery, located in the Traina Center for the Arts. The exhibit, Kindred Spirits, highlights the work of 10 talented artists who have chosen to embrace the ancient art of encaustics.

With a technique that originated over 2,000 years ago, and is exemplified by the Faiyum mummy portraits from the Coptic period, these modern artists carry on a rich tradition, one that has had its share of ebb and flow. Starting in the mid-1920s, there has been a revival of this mesmerizing medium and there is nothing quite like a work produced using this malleable and temperamental substance. It is, ultimately, a technique of trial and error, of chaos and control, and where the resultant product can be stunningly sensual by its seductive sheen and surface translucency. The word encaustic comes from the Greek word enkaustikos, which means “to burn” or “to heat.” The encaustic paint, which consists of beeswax, resin and pigment, is kept molten on a heated palette and, since it quickly hardens once removed from the heat source, it must be applied rapidly to a surface. By using a blowtorch, heat gun, or iron, it is then reheated to make the layers bond to the surface. Afterward, by using the same tools, it can once again be manipulated, reworked and revised in a myriad of ways to achieve the desired result. The work can be polished, textured, collaged, modeled, or sculpted. By no means is it a simple technique and only through many attempts can a semblance of proficiency be attained. Toby Sisson, who is the curator and director of the gallery, as well as the assistant professor of studio art, says, “Importantly, each of these artists is a contemporary practitioner pushing the conventional boundaries of painting or



printmaking or sculpture—and sometimes all three simultaneously—in the service of their formal and conceptual vision.” The 10 artists represented here provide a glimpse into this ethereal and eclectic

flashing, metal from an electric panel box, and a telephone pole cross beam together, along with two “ironed” encaustic panels. The result is a striking abstracted landscape of varied surfaces, where dented metal and rust are juxtaposed against wood and luminous painted passages.

Katz mentioned that she is an assembler, putting together these found treasures. “Making these constructs—physical, visual and mental—I transform and unify through painterly texture, color and pattern.” Marybeth Rothman uses her vast collection of orphaned photographs along with mixed media and encaustic paints to create luminous and haunting glimpses into the world of strangers. “In my photographs, I am always searching for the man with averted eyes or the woman whose empty stare appears indifferent to communication beyond the lens,” Rothman explains. “This examination is motivated by a wish to reclaim these lost and forgotten souls by re-imagining their biographies.” Her exploration of the “unobserved observer”’ is vividly depicted in the two canvases, “Camile 7:16” and “Camile 7:17.” A tremendous visual depth is achieved as light passes through the many layers and is reflected back to the surface. The paintings appear to be illuminated from within. In both versions of Camile, the same young girl stares contemplatively, unaware that her indelible visage is captured on film, the result a fascinating and alluring portrait of a stranger. And by enlarging her photographs, Rothman allows more intimacy between the viewer and the work itself. Commenting on putting together this exhibit, Sisson says, “It was a true labor of love on my part, working with artists of such high caliber, all elevating the resurgence of encaustic among contemporary artists. With a larger exhibition space and given the strength of the medium’s best artists, I could have included even more participants.” Other exceptional artists in the show are Kim Bernard, Kathleen Lemoine, Lisa Pressman, Donna Hamil Talman, and Joanne Mattera. Kindred Spirits at the Clark University Schiltkamp Gallery located in the Traina Center for the Arts, 92 Downing St., Worcester. Show runs through December 12.

Crayon of the cave bear Jim Keogh

Writer-director Werner Herzog often uses his documentaries as a platform to celebrate the natural world while simultaneously lamenting man’s sometimes painful incursions into it. In “Grizzly Man,” Herzog chronicled the saga of a man who yearned to live with the bears right up until the moment that he was eaten by one. In “Encounters at the End of the World,” he tracked the lonely souls populating a research station in Antarctica — scientists, adventurers, dropouts—all of them bearing a tinge of eccentricity. “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” is different. Here, Herzog is in full awestruck mode as he descends into the Chauvet Cave in southern France to bear witness to the prehistoric drawings that decorate the walls. The remarkably detailed portraits of horses, bears, ibexes and woolly mammoths, among other animals, are estimated to be about 32,000 years old and demonstrate an aesthetic, even spiritual, appreciation for nature that few assumed possible in Stone Age man. Herzog is not a giddy guy, but he is clearly relishing his exclusive access to this wondrous gallery. The Chauvet Cave — a series of caves actually, reached through a single opening in a cliff face — was discovered in 1994, and almost immediately sealed off from public view by the French government for fear that the perfectly preserved images would be damaged (it’s noted that human breath promotes the growth of mold). Only a handful of archaeologists and paleontologists are granted limited access to the cave, but they are prohibited from touching any surface and must tread atop a two-foot-wide steel walkway that snakes between ancient skulls and bones scattered across the dirt. The scenario is eerily reminiscent of the Ray Bradbury story “A Sound of Thunder” in which time travelers to the prehistoric era are

forbidden to make physical contact with any life form for fear it could disrupt the future. The scientists, so tantalizingly close to these etched marvels, must abide by Bradbury’ rules to avoid disturbing the ghosts of the past. Herzog’s crew shot “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” in 3-D, but the film loses none of its visual impact in a 2-D format. The illustrations he captures are astounding in their technical sophistication, and surprisingly soulful in their interpretation of the subject matter. A bison is drawn with eight legs to simulate movement; horses gallop at top speed, their manes flowing and mouths agape; a lioness rebuffs the mating overture of her male counterpart. In one extraordinary sequence, Herzog’s cameras trace an etching on a stalactite depicting a naked woman morphing into a bison — a forerunner of Western culture’s Minotaur myth. The film’s talking heads offer valuable context with intriguing facts about the time and place in which the drawings were rendered. My favorite is the paleontologist who demonstrates how a Neanderthal hunter would sling a spear to bring down a horse. After the scientist makes few wobbly throws, the ever-blunt Herzog observes that the Stone Ager must have been a hell of a lot better at it. “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” stays at the party a bit too long. Herzog wanders into Germany for a couple of unnecessary interviews about prehistoric art, and in the final half hour he allows the camera to linger on images we’ve already viewed multiple times. The latter transgression is forgivable. He’s attending an art show only a handful of people have seen in 30 millennia, and, damn it, he’s going to get his money’s worth. “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and Saturday, and at 1 and 2:55 p.m. on Sunday in the Jefferson Academic Center at Clark University. The film is part of the Cinema 320 series.

This film about birdwatchers sets up two monumental tasks for itself: in order to draw you into the central conflict, you have to buy into the importance of an activity that by definition is passive and trivial. Second, you have to be made to care about a trio of irkingly one-dimensional characters and find their obsession interesting. Given such a high bar, on both these points â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Yearâ&#x20AC;? turns out to be a Big Fail.

â&#x20AC;˘ OCTOBER 13, 2011

This should have been a reality TV show. There is no discernible plot, just a competition to see who can view as many birds as possible in the North American continent in a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time, and the toil it takes on the lives of three featured participants. If we could come close to believing that these characters all trying to top each other were real people and this was truly their obsession, even if we knew in the back of our minds that it was probably scripted, we might buy into it just enough and follow them on their silly quest. Instead we get Owen Wilson, Steve Martin and Jack Black saddled with a clunky, uneven, tone-deaf script that takes a long time to lead us to an obvious touchy-feely â&#x20AC;&#x153;now we know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important in lifeâ&#x20AC;? ending that comes off as phony as Herman Cainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 9-9-9 plan

and as cloying as Mitt Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smile. If â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Yearâ&#x20AC;? was a reality show then over a season we could get wrapped up in the marriage-destroying travails of Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top dog birder who holds the record for spotting our fine feathered friends and who ludicrously thinks of himself as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mozartâ&#x20AC;? of bird watching. We might actually get behind Blackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular guy giving it all he has against bleak odds, who may or may not get the girl, and who works in the nuclear power industry and lives with his freaking parents. And maybe the wealthy captain of industry who just wants to retire and watch the birdies, played very badly by Martin, might have an air of mystery about him. If â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Yearâ&#x20AC;? was a reality show then they could dramatize the number of bird sightings each contestant has each week, like getting on the scale in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Biggest Loser.â&#x20AC;? Silly, confusing, arcane â&#x20AC;&#x153;honor systemâ&#x20AC;? rules such as how contestants donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to actually see or photograph the bird, they can identify it by its sound, and just write down their observation in a book, would have entertainment value because it would play into the schadenfreude shit show of how incredibly nuts these people are. Instead it adds to the silliness and questions the veracity of these three actors running around trying to convince us they care about these things, with a lack of intensity that makes it seem like they are reading through the script for the first time, punctuated by some seriously forced comedy bits, and lame attempts at pathos. If â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Yearâ&#x20AC;? was a reality show they could actually follow the contestants around to various locations with handheld cameras, instead of phonying up shots like where Black supposedly arrives at South Station in Boston and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious they just stuck a sign on some random building somewhere and shot it from across the street. And we might be more willing to forgive plot holes like where all the birders are flying up to Alaska for some event and there is supposedly only one plane going there a week, and millionaire Martin, reluctantly involved in some business deal, misses the plane and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go, yet we know he has enough money to charter a plane there anytime he wants. Just plain dumb. But most importantly, if â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Yearâ&#x20AC;? was a reality TV show there would be a one-hundred-percent certainty that I would never watch it ever. And that would be best thing of all.

Asian Bistro Beckons in the Blackstone Michael Brazell

Close your eyes and imagine this inevitable scenario: The date is December 11, in the midst of holiday shopping season, and you have come up with the big idea to get all of your holiday shopping done in one day. Heading to the Shoppes at Blackstone Valley in Millbury, just off of Rt. 146, you fight through long lines and crowds, and finally pick up every last item on your list. Famished after a harrowing day, you stumble upon the dreadful reality of your dining circumstances â&#x20AC;&#x201D; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re surrounded entirely by run-of-the-mill

chain restaurants. Suddenly you spy Feng Asian Bistro & Hibachi, a small chain that with a handful of locations around New England, and discover a classy Asian restaurant with great sushi and a fun and vibrant hibachi bar. In the Millbury outlets, Feng stands out by name alone, so reserve a table for two on a Thursday night using OpenTable, a convenient plus for a restaurant in a shopping mall. The restaurant is divided into three parts, with one section hosting a handful of hibachi bars, a middle section with more than a dozen tables and booths, and a long bar. In the rear of the restaurant stands a lengthy sushi bar situated just in front of a gorgeous, mood-setting Asian-themed red art piece. Feng has a more upscale atmosphere than the typical mall chain restaurant, and the tasteful decor offers a refreshing bit of class. The menu is large with two full pages of sushi, an appetizer list, hibachi, entrĂŠes and nightly specials. In the mood for sushi, my co-diner Taylor and I ordered a number of items, two standard sushi rolls and two specialty rolls. The sweet-potato tempura roll arrived first with eight giant shrimps,

well breaded and crunchy, while the spicy salmon rolls were not memorable, but at $4 and $6 respectively, these would serve as a decent sushi starter for any meal. While we were not overly impressed with the simple rolls, this was quickly remedied when our specialty rolls arrived. I was hesitant of ordering the $16 Scorpion Eel Rolls, but these assorted rolls of eel, crab and shrimp tempura wrapped in soy noriâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a snappy and flavorful alternative to seaweedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;were excellent, each topped with a spicy mayonnaise and salty eel sauce. While the unagi (eel) was not as impressive as other local sushi favorites, the artful

presentation and the unique mix with crab and shrimp more than made up for it. Our second specialty roll, the $15 Dynamite Roll was similarly delicious and particularly spicy. Uniquely wrapped with jalapenos and romaine lettuce, this soft-shelled crab and spicy salmon sushi comes topped with a familiar eel sauce but also a sweet-and-spicy honey wasabi sauce. While we focused on sushi for our first visit, a return visit to the hibachi grill made for a fun meal, with skillful chefs who served generous portions and kept the crowd entertained. While the filet served at the hibachi grill was delicious and tender, and the sushi was well prepared and presented, we were put off by the prices of each item on the menu, which all stand a few dollars more expensive than you would expect at similar hibachi or Asian restaurants. Nevertheless, with an extensive drink menu, good service, and quality Asian cuisine, Feng Asian Bistro & Hibachi stands apart from your other dining choices in the Shoppes at Blackstone Valley.

{ recommended} Carl’s Oxford Diner 291 Main St., Oxford 508-797-8770 Carl’s is a great breakfast and/or lunch destination with a fun atmosphere that won’t zap your wallet. If you like diners, and diner food, hop down to Oxford for this quintessential experience. Health nuts may be a bit uncomfortable with the excessive caloric comfort food, but with fruit-covered pancakes and waffles, one doesn’t have to be a meat-eater to appreciate something on the menu — though, of course, meat-eaters will be pleased. Good service and generous portions only add to the charm. Amici Trattoria 582 Main St., Shrewsbury 508-842-7800 Amici Trattoria offers an intimate Italian dining experience in the heart of Shrewsbury — a perfect spot for a romantic rendezvous. The combination of classic Italian ingredients with tender chicken and seafood provides for a memorable evening. Top it off with homemade tiramasu, if you have room. Put this one on your list of dining “do’s.” Twig’s Café At the Tower Hill Botanic Garden 11 French Drive, Boylston 508-869-6111 Whatever the season, Twig’s Café offers a lovely setting for a hearty lunch. A short menu of interesting soups, salads, sandwiches and sides is available by a roaring fire in winter and on a sunny patio with a panoramic view of north central Massachusetts in the spring, summer and fall. Beer and wine available. Udupi 378 Maple Avenue, Fair Lawn Plaza, Shrewsbury 508-459-5099 Hidden right off of Route 9 in Shrewsbury, this vegetarian haven offers an extensive menu that can satisfy just about anyone. The Indian food is solidly good, but the value is even better. Try one of the specials that sample several menu offerings, and even split it with a friend (the platters are good size). It’s worth a visit if you’re in the area, and if you’re vegetarian and looking for something different, it’s worth a little travel out of the way, too. Even the most devout carnivores will find something to their liking. Bay State Bakery 96 Water St., Worcester 508-753-6000 Bay State Bakery in Worcester offers Middle Eastern cooking using quality fresh ingredients. Doubling as a deli and convenience store, this Water Street eatery features delicious meats, vegetables, and some of the best hummus the Western Hemisphere has to offer. You can’t go wrong with one of the kabob dishes, or the chicken or beef schwarma, served either as a flatbread sandwich or as a plate with rice, salad and yogurt dip. Boynton Restaurant and Spirits 117 Highland St., Worcester 508-756-8458 Itís still a beautiful day in the neighborhood at this Highland Street classic. Despite modernizing, The Boynton still serves up homestyle favorites - steaks, burgers, chicken, pasta, a decent selection of shellfish, plus comfort foods - in a friendly, bustling atmosphere. Lots of plasma TVs in the bar offer drinking or dining with ample views of the Sox or Patriots. Ranch Cantina 329 Grafton St., Worcester 508-792-3560

eatbeat An authentic slice of Brazil on Grafton Hill. Ranch Cantina is a churrascuria, a traditional Brazilian restaurant which serves barbecued beef, pork and chicken, as well as ample and hearty non-meat choices, in a buffet format. The place is low-key, the fare is delicious, and served by the pound or as an all-you-can-eat option. Some Mexican dishes are also available. EVO 234 Chandler St., Worcester 508-459-4240 Attached to the Living Earth and Amethyst Point, EVO: “American Dining EVOlved” offers a fresh perspective on dining, with a menu that favors natural, organic, vegetarian, vegan and other specialty diets. Meat-eating dates can rest assured, though, for they have a reward in excellent Kobe beef burgers and other meat options. The value is decent, considering most of the food is organic or all natural, so even if you’re doing dessert, you can feel extra good about what you’re eating. Brew City Grill and Brew House 104 Shrewsbury St. 508-752-3862 Brew City’s menu covers all the brew-pub bases: steaks, ribs, fajitas, chicken, home-style favorites like meatloaf, pasta and seafood - with many recipes based on beers from Brew City’s selection. In other cases, such as on the specials, beer pairings are offered. The atmosphere is an engaging faux-urban décor of industrial street lamps, brick and tin, wavy lines and ramps, and brushed steel skylines; and sports memorabilia that lines the walls throughout the dining room and adjacent bar. Periodic live music. Credit cards accepted. Off-street parking in rear. Bocado Tapas Wine Bar 86 Winter St. 508-797-1011 Bocado’s is Worcester’s first, and best, tapas restaurant, a five-star tour through Spain’s appetizer-crazed cuisine. The food is varied, creative, fresh and refreshing; the all-Spanish wine list smart and equally creative; the service professional and attentive; the atmosphere is urbane and, yes, sexy. It’s trendy, but substantial. Credit cards accepted. Off-street parking. Full liquor bar. Moderate pricing. Bullfinch’s 730 Boston Post Road, Sudbury 978-443-4094 Bullfinch’s serves all-natural meats, including hormone-free, antibiotic-free natural beef, free-bird chicken and Aussie Premium all-natural lamb. Fine diners may choose between petite or larger entrees. Many traditional dishes are prepared with inventive twists and all are served with fresh, seasonal ingredients, each with a recommended wine selection. The respectable wine list, from a range of domestic and foreign regions, is rated from delicate to robust and offers such surprising varietals as prosecco, moscato and tempranillo. Special dishes and wines are showcased at monthly wine dinners. Bullfinch’s also offers live music, Sunday brunch, children’s and takeout menus, catering and function space. The Texas BBQ Company 309 Main St., Northboro 508-393-4742 Worth the trip for just the barbecue meats alone. Though the atmosphere is basic, the food quality, preparation and recipes are outstanding. The best meats, wood-smoked for 16 hours, produces the best barbecue ribs (pork, beef and baby back), chicken, pulled pork, brisket and Texas Hill Country sausage to be had in Central Massachusetts. Credit cards accepted. Full liquor bar. Off-street parking. Take-out available.

The renovation is substantial and sophisticated, and the rear terrace adds a new dimension to Worcester fair-weather dining: a gorgeous space to eat, drink, see, and be seen. Via runs the gamut of Mediterranean classics, like “Three Meatballs on No. 8 Spaghetti,” lasagna (Bolognese or three cheeses), shrimp scampi and salmon to spit-roasted chicken or pork loin chops to ragouts to gnocchi pie, pork shank osso buco, paella, and six varieties of grilled pizza. Free valet and off-street parking. Full liquor, beer and wine. Credit cards accepted. Eighty Ates Bar & Grille 8 Airport Road, Dudley 508-949-8888 Wind your way through Webster and Dudley to Eighty Ates Bar & Grille, where trendy meets rural suburbia.

Whether dressed up or dressed down, diners will find a creative and tasty spin on chicken, steaks, seafood and pasta, with fresh ingredients like feta and goat cheeses, sundried tomatoes, Portobello mushrooms and couscous. The same goes for desserts, like the homemade chocolate brownie sundae and raspberry white chocolate cheese brule. Open for lunch and dinner, all the prices end in “88 cents.” There’s even a kids’ menu. The bar sports flat-screens, a wine list with just enough variety and a fun martini menu. Chuck’s Steak House 10 Prospect St. (Rte. 20), Auburn 508-832-2553 Diners who look more than skin deep at Chuck’s will be rewarded with sumptuous, hand-carved steaks, a clean, varied soup-andsalad bar, seafood, and home-style sides. The building is dark, dated and funky, but the food and service are good. Moderate to expensive. Credit cards accepted. Off-street parking. Full liquor bar.

What type of services does Orange Salon offer? First, we listen. Then we wash your hair in chairs that turn into back massaging beds where you get a hand and arm massage. After your high-quality hairstyle, we touch up your makeup. It’s rumored that we follow you home and feng shui your house, but that’s unconfirmed.

How do you and your staff promote cancer awareness at the Salon? We promote the pink hair extensions and everyone we can get involved to promote awareness which is highlighted in October, but we repeatedly promote it all year long. I’ll tint my dogs pink and walk down Main Street if I can get it televised to get someone to get a mammogram or a scan. The dogs will love the attention. But seriously– my staff goes out to clubs, to homecomings, to colleges and multiple community events all month long. They are self-motivated heroes and I am awed by them. I am proud and lucky.

Tell us about Pink Party for Life on October 29 at the DCU Center – how did this idea come about? I love a great party, don’t you? I’d rather be asked to go to a show or event than for a hand out, so I am determined to create the ultimate, undeniable show. Aerial artists flowing in the air above the ballroom, flash-mob dance surprises and a comedian, Patty



Ross, who will make your sides hurt. I have done this deep in the woods [of Douglas] in my backyard for years and it grows bigger every time. I thought I’d open the doors to the whole world and use it for the most important cause in my life, in many people’s lives. Invite everyone you know, and ask them to do the same!

What organizations are you fundraising for/what will these funds support? We are donating to the American Cancer Society and asking them to support Hope Lodge and then research in the local area. We will grow our focus in the future to promote lesser known support programs for those suffering from cancer and cutting-edge research for a cure. Today, the American Cancer Society is the best way to do this, by involving them in highlighting whatever we do.

What are you most excited about for the party? People flying through the air always excited me. But my ultimate excitement, truly, will be a crowd-topping 2,000 guests. Please make it happen.

What benefits/goals do you hope to achieve with this event? I want people to know that this is the event that we will grow year after year. We can accommodate 50,000 people and can get any artist in the world as we grow this event and gain support. Sponsors will be known as superstars in the community, and we will ask that patrons be loyal to them. We can sponsor cures, treatment and

care for those who would otherwise die. That’s it, you see, with the unmet need, people die. It’s not cable service where you can go out and get satellite. If we don’t create it and fund it, people we love die.

What do the pink hair extensions you offer at the Salon represent? Kids care. That’s it, mostly. The average donor for this segment is a young person, often brought by their parent or a team leader. They raise awareness because most people will ask about that streak in your hair. When your tell them and refer them, it creates another donation. It’s viral.

What inspires you to be such a vocal voice in the community for cancer research and prevention? Most people can give you a list of the people in their lives that have been af-

fected. Mine is long, and sadly, that’s common. But the most poignant story I have is of an anonymous, loving father who one day brought his two children with a quiet and solemn composure into the salon. They got the pink strand and left, all the while the empty space, the ghost of the mother and wife was weightily present. It filled me with overwhelming emotion; I got tears in my eyes and shortness of breath. Then they were gone. And the world didn’t notice. It’s very hard for me to tell you how much it upset me, I could talk about it for hours and it wouldn’t be enough. Isn’t this the human condition? Someone needs to scream about this, at the top of their lungs. Learn more about Party for Pink on October 29 at the DCU Center by visiting
