The MFA is hosting the first of four all-night raves "mfaNOW" contemporary-art events that includes dancing and "food trucks and lawn games, live music and DJs, lectures, artist demonstrations, performance art."

Cambridge Police report a Dorchester man was stabbed and chomped at Bishop Allen Drive and Douglas Street after he took umbrage to a remark one of two guys out in the street made about his wife around 2 a.m. today.
During the fight that broke out after the man issued a verbal rebuttal to the remark, one of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in the arm, police say. One of the two men also bit him in the leg before scurrying off.
Police say the man and his wife made their way to a Boston hospital for treatment.
The suspects are both described as being about 5'8" and in their mid-20s, police say. They declined to say what they said.
