It’s a bar, it’s a deli, it’s Hawk’s Bar and Grille on State Street. Walk through the door on the left, and you’ll be entering the bar. Walk through the one on the right, and you can walk right up to the deli style counter, and order anything off of the menu or a custom salad. Whichever...

Guillermo del Toro is a master director. In his most recent project, del Toro turns over the directing reigns to Troy Nixey, a first time motion picture director, and instead focused on writing the screenplay. “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” is a great “Americanized” version of one of his...
