Where to go with a Zipcar in Boston for three hours?

BostonFilter: Quick! I have a Zipcar reservation from 10am to 1pm today, and the appointment I rented it for has been canceled. Since I'm eating the cost either way, I want to do something with the reservation, but I'm short on ideas. What should I do that's either useful or fun for someone who rarely has access to a car?

Dinner suggestions in Greenwich Village near the IFC Center?

Simple question this time around! I’m searching for a quick, unique and especially delicious dinner in New York around The IFC Center. The theater is located just off the A train’s West 4th stop in the village just blocks away from Washington Square Park, near parts of Bleeker street. We’ll have less than an hour before the film starts and want to try something tasty and unique. Also, cheap-ish is a plus!

Delicious "no-cook" dishes in under 30 min?

I recently came across this awesomeness of a Daal recipe. It blew me away, not only with its amazing flavor, but the fact that you actually don't have to cook. I mean you chop one onion, dump all the ingredients in and less than 30 minutes later, you have an amazing meal. Which immediately made me wonder, are there any other awesomely tasty recipes out there which I could add to my repertoire of fast and easy?

The Myth of the Quick Draw

I read an article a couple of years ago, I think it was written by Larry McMurtry, about the myth of the quick draw. Essentially the writer said that no one in their right mind would approach an enemy with their weapon holstered and the quick draw is a myth of Western fiction. I've done some searching of databases and online and I can't find the dang thing. [more inside]
