In the past, you had to scour the city for vintage Pendleton shirts, locally made tees and beer soap. Then Sault opened, and suddenly there was a way to get all of it in one spot. Say thank you.

Everything That Was Important in 2011
2011. With the exception of the occasional bummer (see: Red Sox, flameout), it was a monster year, filled with roof decks, sexy Asian lairs and barhopping by boat. Here are the highlights...
Where once pasta and pizza danced inside a Bertucci’s, there now resides a cavernous, dark-lit homage to the sexy lairs of Asia (or at least Foxwoods). Bonus: their hot and sour soup is some of the best around.

A Restaurant Explosion in Cambridge
For years, Kendall Square was a technological hotbed. But a beehive of amazing restaurants it was not. Until 2011, when a killer beer hall opened, followed by pizza bars, tapas spots and other gems. There’s never been a better time to be a genius in Cambridge.

If we’ve learned anything from TMZ, it’s that sensitive information can be hacked from your phone (see: Scarlett Johansson’s fantastic... er, personal photos). So someone created this, which basically covers your texting tracks, even if you forget to.
For months, hints were dropped about it. Finally, Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg joined burgering forces in Hingham to open Wahlburgers. No, eating there does not guarantee you a walk-on role on Blue Bloods.
