    The baristas and cashiers at Ground & Griddled, the breakfast stall at the new R. House food hall, are the only ones who know the names of the shop's discounted coffee-and-sandwich combos. And owner Dave Sherman wants to keep it that way — for now. Sherman is among the local restaurateurs taking...

    'Hairspray Live' was like watching Super Bowl — in a good and bad way

    Watching NBC’s “Hairspray Live” on Wednesday night was like watching the Super Bowl — in both a good and bad way. In the end, it was more on the good side in terms of the story and performances.

    The Trump doctrine: Speak loudly and keep 'em guessing about the stick
