This weekend, Boston University’s History Department will host a two-day conference as part of its Food and the City initiative. Held in Room 906 of the Photonics Center, the conference will focus on the historical relationship between food and cities. By incorporating multi-disciplinary and global perspectives, the conference will nurture a necessary discussion that has its roots in the past and also looks forward, aiming to inform the future of urban food systems. Ken Albala from University of the Pacific will serve as the conference keynote.

"Side Streets" is a partnership between BU Now and The Quad, in which Quad writers will profile things to see and do along different streets that intersect Commonwealth Avenue. This week's street of choice, Massachusetts Avenue, is otherwise affectionately referred to as "Mass Ave" by Bostonians. Mass Ave is 16 miles of history and culture. The street runs from Dorchester to Lunenberg. On a journey down Mass Ave, you'll encounter bars, restaurants, historic landmarks, shops, and even colleges.
Should you find yourself in far eastern BU territory, make moves to Mass Ave and stop in any of the following highlights of the legendary street.
