I typed "French butter" into the search engines of two of my favorite, reputable food websites. I researched "types of French butter" in Google and Google.fr. There wasn’t much to find, and my mind raced anxiously as I stood in the tram, left arm weighed down by two jars of compote de pommes, one kilo of sucre en poudre, one liter of glace  de la vanille, an expensive flask of maple syrup from Cananda, and of course, the source of my anxiety: two packets of beurre doux à teneur réduite en M.G.

There is a bit of a problem with Late Night at Marciano Commons, and that problem is, it's not open nearly late enough to be truly considered "late night." What's open for those in South, or Bay State Road, or the people living near Central who aren't close to a real late night pick-me-up? Keep your eyes open for the orange flash, the tangerine-jumpsuited fellow whizzing down the streets at night during the obscenely wee hours.
