The Fenway area attracts both locals and tourists given its proximity to popular attractions like Fenway Park, the House of Blues, a number of restaurants on Lans- downe Street, and one of my personal favorites, CityTarget. However, the area is home to another restaurant, a hidden gem worth checking out, Yard House.
Yard House is located at 126 Brookline Ave near Fenway and offers all types of comfort food, including this trio sampler dessert.

“My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2”- March 25
It’s been 14 years since Toula and Ian’s (Nia Vardalos and John Corbett) iconic marriage, and their relationship has lost some of its spark. Their teenage daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris) rebels against them and doesn’t follow Greek traditions, not to mention that Toula’s parents’ marriage turns out not to be as legitimate as the Portokalos clan thought. Many of the beloved original cast- members return in the series’ second installment.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”- March 25
When Superman (Henry Cavill) and evil overlord Zod (Michael Shannon) duked it out in the city of Metropolis two years ago, the area was left crippled and destroyed. The locals are unhappily still piecing back together their broken homes, including billion- aire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), who decides that the only way to make things right is to strap on the Batman suit and rid the earth of Superman once and for all. Lex Luthor ( Jesse Eisenberg) has similar aspirations, waging a war against the Man of Steel along with Batman. This has the makings of another “superfilm,” next to the likes of “Jurassic World” or “Star Wars.” So sport your favorite superhero outfit and head to the theatres in super style.

“Krampus”- December 4
There are a lot of things you could say this movie is not, but original wouldn’t be one of them. After Christmas day didn’t turn out as well as he planned, a young boy accidentally summons a Christmas demon to his home, terrorizing him and his family. The film stars Adam Scott (“Step Brothers,” “Parks and Recreation”), Allison Tolman (“Fargo”), and David Koechner (“Anchorman”). With the tagline “You don’t want to be on his list,” comedy, scares, and laughs are sure to ensue. – T. Davis

Imagine a beautiful, baron landscape. One with two moons and extreme conditions. This is the incredible setting for “The Martian.” Now, in the same place, where there is no natural water and where you can’t grow anything, imagine being impaled, barely surviving an extreme storm, and your entire crew left with the only way of getting off the planet.
