It was 1978. A college dropout and a failed medical-school applicant had just brought together their combined life savings to rent an old gas station. Their plan was to resurrect the empty station and open their own restaurant. Their specialty: ice cream. So begins the story of legendary entrepreneurs Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, who are better known across the globe as Ben & Jerry. Their small, old-fashioned ice-cream parlor eventually became a Burlington, Vermont favorite, and before long, shops popped up all over the U.S. and in 25 other countries. Their brand easily attracted customers––homemade ice cream churned from wholesome, natural ingredients and blended into creative flavors. Some of their popular scoops include Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey, and Coffee Caramel Buzz.

Since infusing their first rich and creamy batches of ice cream with natural chunks of fruit, nuts, candies, and cookies, Ben and Jerry have also operated with a commitment to improve the quality of life locally, nationally, and internationally. They practice sustainable food production and business practices that respect the earth and environment. Ben & Jerry’s cartons are made from FSC-certified paper, which comes from forests that are managed for the protection of wildlife, and waste from Ben & Jerry’s plants generates energy to power farms. The company works tirelessly to reduce its carbon emissions; it strongly encourages customers to eat their ice cream in the darkest dark.

Beginning as an offshoot of Cambridge's historic textile industry and a complement to the inventive business model of By The Pound, The Garment District continues combining a repertoire of hip, quirky clothing with eco-friendly practices of recycling and consignment. The hard-working staff of 40 intercepts gently used fashions and unworn apparel before it can be carelessly thrown away or wasted on stylish scarecrows. More than 40,000 wearables don men, women, and children in modish displays of vintage, contemporary, and designer clothing, drawing in hats, dresses, shoes, and accessories from sources across the country to keep the racks stocked with millions of pounds of clothing throughout the year. Thread handlers sort through collected duds, hanging the stylishly suited on racks, sending overstock clothing to developing countries, and shipping soiled or torn clothing to a shoddy mill, where it is ground up and sent as threats to fashion designers.

A 40-foot mahogany bar dominates the space at The Spirit Bar, allowing bartenders to slide any of the 50 available brews to patrons while they watch up to eight different games on 12 televisions, including seven 42-inch plasma screens. The bar's year-round premium sports packages keep the apple-red walls echoing with the sounds of professional baseball, hockey, or college football, and it hosts viewings of every college-basketball tournament game and pay-per-view ultimate-fighting event. Dartboards and weekly pub-trivia nights help keep patrons occupied in between athletic broadcasts.

Even the menu strives for an inclusive neighborhood feel, featuring an eclectic combination of international and regional comfort foods. The cooks slather wings with one of 17 different sauces—such as chipotle-bourbon barbecue, caribbean jerk, or garlic and parmesan—and they hand-form each Angus-beef burger patty. Fried fish 'n' chips evoke the menu of a transatlantic pub, and nachos with homemade salsa and guacamole recall flavors from south of the international date line.

Adorn your extremities and bedeck your neck with precious metals and subtle stones. With today's deal, $25 gets you $40 worth of artisanal jewelry and accessories from Tis Tik, the charming little shop tucked away in Harvard Square. Tistik means "a warm welcome to you" in Mayan, and the store does its best to live up to the name, including closing on December 21, 2012, for the end of the Mayan calendar and, subsequently, the universe. Step into the charming white and teal shop and discover dozens of little handmade treasures that make thoughtful holiday gifts or very belated afterthought Valentine’s Day gifts (if you're even reading this, Martin.)

All of the jewelry in Tis Tik is made by artisans from developing countries who craft beautiful, wearable art from blown glass, metalwork, wood beads, stone, gold filigree, and even seeds. Jewelry at Tis Tik range in price from $56 for sterling silver and natural stone necklace and earring sets to just $12 for glass and silver plate rings. Tis Tik also carries an array of accessories such as handcrafted handbags made from reclaimed candy wrappers. Take a look at a few examples of the sparkling wares currently in stock.

Tis Tik is located in Cambridge in the heart of Harvard Square and is open seven days a week for last-minute gift shopping or leisurely browsing.

Reviews

Yelpers love the artisanal jewelry at Tis Tik:

  • What a gem of a store to make it's [sic] way to Harvard Square...I could not resist buying a silver ball ring, it is so shiny and new. – Melissa M.
  • In an unexpected turn of events, I was drawn to the rings by Maria Teresa Gonzalez. UH-MAZING. They're these sculptural creations made using various metals. – Sarah L.
  • I would definitely recommend it for an expensive gift or for a cute pick me up when you've have a rough day. – Colleen Y.

From Jewelry to Tool-ery

Now that you have your pick of any number of handmade art and jewelry pieces from Tis Tik, all those precious stones you’ve got lying around your house might seem a lot less precious. Don’t worry, much of your old, useless jewelry can be repurposed for any number of household uses. Did you know the following?

  • Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend, but this ultra-dense mineral can also be used to tip a masonry drill bit or to buy your freedom from a Flemish gulag.
  • Sapphires, also known as blue rubies or bloobies, can be used to decorate species besides human beings. Try using them as sparkling blue eyes in your next taxidermy project.
  • Rubies, also known as red bloobies, can be affixed to old pairs of slippers in order to create hackneyed plot devices when clicked together. Warning: May attract scarecrows.
  • Emeralds can be converted into cash money today! Bring the emeralds cluttering up your house to Donny Y., The Emerald Guy, just off Route 39 by the abandoned children’s music academy! We’ll take your cold, hard, green emeralds and turn them into cold, hard green cash, guaranteed or my name isn’t Donny Y! Just tell them Donny Y. sent you! And remember, do not park at Steak Hut, they will tow. Donny Y. says stop on by—today!

The brand American Apparel, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, conjures up images of stylish and well-fitting fashion basics. It also likely brings to mind sassy advertisements featuring long-haired beauties in natural makeup posing in skin-bearing bodysuits and loungewear.

But what many don't know about the brand—despite its name and the slice of apple pie that comes with every purchase—is that all of its clothes are made in America. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in one building in downtown Los Angeles, and the rest occurs within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every slim-fitting pair of pants, spandex bodysuit, and v-neck T-shirt is made in a sweatshop-free environment.

Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.

Judy Rosenberg didn’t set out to be an award-winning chef or an NPR-lauded cookbook author. The owner of Rosie’s Bakery found her calling in 1974 after attending art school and gobbling desserts at some of New York’s finest bakeries, becoming inspired to forge her own batch of sweets. When the staff of a local cheesecake shop got hooked on her homemade cookies, she knew she’d found a recipe for success. Since then, she’s expanded her culinary repertoire to include fudge-nut brownies, bavarian-cream fruit tarts, and more than 14 types of muffins and scones.

Each recipe teems with real, old-fashioned ingredients, such as butter, cream, sugar, and edible monocles. Cakes come in circular layers and rectangular sheets, boasting flavors such as carrot and mocha. Filled with snickerdoodles and chocolate-chip rounds, the cookie lineup conjures more childhood memories than a psychiatrist who rides to work in an ice-cream truck.
