Editor’s gripe:
It sort of bothers me that  Boston Magazine needs to separate South Boston into two neighborhoods.  Why don’t they do that for Dorchester?  It also bothers us that when listing places like Drink, Tavern Road, Bringing Up Baby they were listed as Boston – not South Boston or even Fort Point for that matter.  Let’s give credit where credit is due. Final gripe?  Watertown, Cambridge and Somerville are not Boston.  Gheesh!
