ANOTHER GOOD BET
Beginning Tuesday and until the end of the month, you can simultaneously nourish your body and your soul: Most Northampton eateries will be celebrating Poetry Month by displaying poems about food written by local poets. It’s the brainstorm of the city’s poet laureate, Rich Michelson.
