What kind of company would clean my grimy, dirty basement?

In a few weeks, I'll be moving into a house with a very dirty unfinished basement. I want to hire a company to really, really clean it, but I haven't been able to get any good responses from the local companies I tried. It seems like there is dust and grime everywhere.

Somewhere to watch England v. Russia in Boston 6/11/16?

I'm meeting a friend in Boston on June 11th and we'd very much like to watch the England v. Russia Euro football (soccer) in a pub. We'd be looking for ideally the closest experience to watching it in a pub in England, i.e. a place dedicated to watching just this match with a partisan crowd shouting for England, or as close to that as possible. Anyone got any suggestions for venues? Thanks!

Christmas Sights and Doin's in Boston

My family will be joining me in the Boston area for Christmas this year, for the first time, for only a few days surrounding the 25th. If we were in NYC, near where I grew up, I'd know exactly what to do - see the windows, Rockefeller Ctr, St. Patrick's, the Grand Central train show...but I don't know what the Boston equivalents of these sightseeing traditions are. One caveat: Boston seems big on performing arts events for the holidays, and we probably aren't going to be able to coordinate schedules for ticketed events. I'm looking for things you can just drop in to. [more inside]

Where can I find *fake* banana milkshakes in Boston?

A friend of mine has a craving for a banana milkshake from Steak and Shake. Unfortunately, there's no Steak and Shake anywhere close to here. Specifically, she wants the artificial banana flavor, and weirdly, it seems like it's easier to find real banana than fake.

Does SATA airlines still fly direct from Boston to Lisbon?

Searching "direct flights" from Boston to Lisbon turns up vague references and a Boston Globe article from two years ago (http://www.boston.com​/travel/blog/2013/04​/new_flights_bet.html). I know some people who have flown this route in the past, but neither Google Flights nor any other travel site can actually show those flights. Was this route discontinued? Does any other airline still fly BOS-LIS direct?
