Why Portland is Maine's culinary capital

A server took a break from shucking oysters and shaking martinis to deliver my supper: a hat-sized bowl of plump, steaming mussels.

Game review: 'Just Dance 2018,' familiar but fun dance routine has a few new steps

Parents need to know that "Just Dance 2018" is the latest release in Ubisoft's popular rhythm and music series. The version for newer consoles includes some deeper content, and the Switch version in particular sports a few exclusive modes and features that take advantage of the dual Joy-Con controllers. While the game encourages players to get active with full body movement, players can skirt by using only minor motions in the hands and arms. Parents should also be aware that, despite having a decent amount of content packed in, "Just Dance 2018" pushes hard for players to purchase additional downloadable content, with a specific focus on a monthly subscription service for the game.

On a cool autumn morning, underneath a gray sky laden with fat clouds that promised buckets of rain that thankfully never came, hundreds, perhaps thousands gathered at the National Infantry Museum in Columbus, on the very western edge of Georgia near the banks of the Chattahoochee River. Throw a rock across that river, and you'll hit Alabama.
