Saucy reporter Mike Deehan analyzed campaign expense reports from state and local candidates in Massachusetts and found they've spent $275,000 over the past ten years on pizza.

Naturally, he posts a pizza pie chart to show the most popular outlets. The chart emphasizes Roslindale's lack of political clout - the Pleasant Cafe doesn't make the cut; in fact, it's beaten out by Pizza Hut and Papa John's (but here's the Pleasant Cafe list - Ed Coppinger and Mike Rush are fans).

The Boston Licensing Board today gave Rock City Pizza, 568 Cambridge St., permission to stay open until 2 a.m. - and deliver until 3 a.m.

The pizza place had previously had to close at 1 a.m.

At a hearing yesterday, the pizza place's owner said the public need for the later hours comes from the repeated requests he's been getting from customers for later food - especially from people wandering by from nearby bars that have later closing times. He noted he's also right down the street from St. Elizabeth's Hospital.

However, if you work or live in the area (or are attending a conference at the Boston Convention Center), it’s an excellent place to enjoy a great meal.
