Pollo Campero - Fast Fried and Grilled Chicken in Chelsea

We just got back - it's near where Uncle Pete's used to be. We loved it - beans and rice not great, but fries, fried chicken, and grilled chicken - excellent. Get there early - be prepared to wait for a table or snake one while you wait in line.

Pollo Campero. Yes, the fried chicken is what all of Chelsea is lining up for. But don't overlook the grilled. (OK, get both.) It has a citrus-y flavor, with plenty of herbs, and a nice char on the skin; the lime wedges it's served with do much to perk up dry white meat.

Maybe an Asteroid Didn't Kill the Dinosaurs

Maybe an Asteroid Didn't Kill the Dinosaurs - TIME: "When a scientific principle is common knowledge even in grammar schools, you know it's long since crossed the line from theory to established fact. That's the case with dinosaur extinction. Some 65 million years ago — as we've all come to know — an asteroid struck the Earth, sending up a cloud that blocked the sun and cooled the planet. That, in turn, wiped out the dinosaurs and made way for the rise of the mammals. The suddenness with which so many species vanished after the 65-million-year mark always suggested a single cataclysmic event, and the 1978 discovery of a 112-mi., 65-million-year-old crater off the Yucatan peninsula near the town of Chicxulub seemed to seal the deal."
