South Kingstown is the newest location opening in 2013 of Rock Spot Climbing’s multiple locations, where colorful footholds and route markers sprawl along artificial rocks create diverse climbing surfaces for every major discipline. Dozens of top-rope stations challenge climbers to scale the wall in safety, whether belayed by a human companion or hooked up to an auto-belay unit that reduces the risk of conversation. Meanwhile, others eschew ropes in order to tackle bouldering routes—low-altitude obstacles littered with arches, steep faces, and caves—and lead climbers set their own anchors as they scale the wall. The climbing courses vary for all skill levels, ranging from sheer faces with ample handholds to cliffs for expert climbers and lemmings. Cardio machines let athletes warm up or cool down between climbs, and instructors lead afterschool classes to teach kids the art of competitive climbing.
A decade ago, Chuck Silverston was walking the streets of Paris when he happened upon a street vendor whipping up crepes. After tasting the quintessential Parisian treat, he returned to the states and promptly opened Paris Creperie. Inside the cozy caf?, the kitchen churns out crepes brimming with savory ingredients such as brie and apples or sweet fillings such as graham cracker and cinnamon, as well as smoothies and coffee. Nutella is a mainstay on the menu, making its way into dessert crepes as well as into drinks such as hot chocolate and lattes. In the spirit of Chuck?s original street-vendor encounter, Paris Creperie also unleashes its food truck?la Tour Eiffel?among the hungry denizens of greater Boston, feeding passersby with breakfast and dinner crepes all day.
According to popular belief about barbecue, the less fancy a barbecue restaurant is, the more delicious its food will be. M&M Ribs is a living example of this—its tender chicken, fall-off-the-bone racks of ribs, and meaty pulled-pork sandwiches are served out of a simple, unadorned food truck.
The mobile barbecue joint's set schedule ensures that it's predictably parked at City Hall and in the Financial District when it’s not resting in its home lot at the corner of Hampden and Kemble or on the roof of Faneuil Hall. This ensures that fans of fried chicken, beef brisket, and mac ’n’ cheese can always easily track down some country-style cuisine. When not dishing out feasts to lunch and dinner crowds, M&M's chefs cater barbecue meals or make appearances at local festivals and markets.
Boston Bowl Family Fun Center is a modern yet nostalgic bowler’s haven thats open 24/7 all-year round with 30 traditional tenpin lanes as well as 14 ever-tricky candlepin lanes. Fully automated scoring systems keep track of every roll, and optional bumpers prevent balls from appearing in the gutters or into the nightmares of first-time bowlers.
Once 10th frames have come and gone, Boston Bowl keeps players entertained with other forms of hands-on entertainment. In Dorchester, such activities include billiards, outdoor batting cages, and an arcade of more than 80 high-tech interactive video and prize games.
The recently expanded Hanover location now includes state-of-the-art party rooms for private post-bowling soirees as well as a larger game room. In addition to the pizza and handcrafted beer, both locations offer an extensive catering and party menu for private events.
Appetito's sleek, modern interior, with its burnished wood bar and polished windows, is indicative of the contemporary sensibilities with which its kitchen interprets classic Italian fare. Handmade pastas, fresh herbs, and seasonal heirloom vegetables furnish brunch, lunch, and dinner menus. On weekends, diners can sit down to a hearty brunch dish such as the challah french toast, which oozes with strawberries and rum-splashed bananas. During the week, the dining room hums with energy generated by tables chatting amicably and digging into five styles of focaccia paninis or savory pasta dishes, such as gnocchi polloi with mascarpone.
