These days, the difference between new and slightly used isn't all that much. It definitely depends on what car you're looking at, but it may only be $2500, and if you can get 0 interest on a new car, you'll make most of that money back in saved interest.

I hate that the Boston Brewing Company keeps changing the upper limits so they can remain a 'craft beer', but they do have a few good offerings. The Octoberfest and the Winter Lager are some of their top notch offerings (to me, at least), and some of their other seasonals are not bad. The Sam Adams ...

- Subway (no Blimpie in S'port anymore)
