Weekly Wrap Up - The Friday Budget Crash

Sorry we're late, we stayed at the budget hearing til 5 in the morning and then accidentally crashed out til' just now. Our first foray into the political sphere has so far taught us that the food at Government Center is pretty good, try the Guava and Cheese triangles at Bottega Express, and that public meetings are cool because even if they don't want you there, you're still allowed to go. Here's what you might have missed from us over the last week.
