National Geographic has rated Firefly's in Marlborough among the best BBQ in the country.
Firefly's in Marlborough was the only New England restaurant to land in Intelligent Travel's 10 Best BBQ Joints in America. The list features the best from around the country in what the article describes as America's food. It should come as no surprise to those who have been, but Memphis snags the top spot with Corky's. Marlborough's own Firefly's Restaurant makes the list at number nine, being noted for their sauces and sweet tea. What do you think of the barbeque at Firefly's? Do you think it should rate higher? Have you been to any of the other restaurants on the list? We want to hear about it in the comments.

The management of Firefly's told the License Board Wednesday that it will never have Bar Pong again after two incidences where the police had to be called.
The Bar Pong games that Firefly's used to run will never return following a disturbance that brought police to the restaurant in October. “We cancelled bar pong the day after that October fourth incident and discontinued it and will never bring it back into Firefly’s," said Firefly's Manager Steven Uliss. The games were held to draw people in during the week, he said. The game never involved alcohol in the cups, per state law, said Uliss. The restaurant soon found people attending bar pong that did not fit with their target clientelle, he said. “It was success and then we saw that the crowd that we saw coming into the rest was not the crowd we wanted,” said Uliss. Following a second incident where police had to be called to Firefly's to …

Firefly's restaurant has reached out to the Marlborough lunch crowd with its new food truck.
Firefly's food truck has been serving up lunch for three months now in the parking lot of the Marlborough staple. "There aren't a lot of food trucks in the area, so it is nice to have that option," said Morgan Eggimann who runs the truck with Austin Doig. The pair has been dishing out quick food to the lunch crowd throughout the summer. With Firefly's closed for lunch, this offered another option to residents with seating available at the patio. The truck has even hopped on to the recent food truck craze, being positioned at local festivals. However, for a quick lunch it can be found in the Firefly's parking lot from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

A profile of Joy Asia Comedy Night held each Thursday at this popular Chinese food hot spot.
For the last two months, Joy Asia on Rt 20 in Marlborough has been the home of the Happy Ending Comedy Night every Thursday evening from 8:30-11 p.m., providing area comedy fans a chance to see up-and-coming local comics perform, and also giving folks who think they got what it takes, a chance to show their stuff during the open mic session that concludes each Comedy Night. Already well known around town for its lively karaoke nights, Joy Asia's foray into the local comedy scene was the brainchild of local businessman Bernie Novitch, owner of Collector's Paradise, located at 771 Boston Post Rd. Helping tremendously with the booking and planning is Phoenix transplant and current Boston comic Erik Levi. This past Thursday evening saw Levi…

Jon Gourd talks about 3 albums he's listening to right now. Give us your picks, and let's create a dialogue on the best music out there. Also, let us know who your favorite local acts are, and when they are playing.
1. Counting Crows - Recovering the Satellites I firmly believe that Counting Crows are one of the most underrated popular bands of the last 20 years, and I believe that this album, their sophomore effort, is their finest work to date. It's also the perfect album when Mother Nature decides to dump a foot-and-a-half of snow on you, as she did in Marlborough this week. "A Long December" is the ideal winter singalong anthem, and the rest of the album seems to follow suit. The melancholy mood of the fourteen tracks are the perfect companion to the shorter, colder, darker days of winter. 2. Bruce Springsteen - Darkness On The Edge Of Town To watch the recent documentary "The Promise: The Making of 'Darkness On The Edge Of Town'" is to …

Jon Gourd talks about the latest album from The Decemberists, and lets readers know what the local music scene will look like this weekend.
The Decemberists' follow-up to 2009's ambitious, sprawling folk-rock opera "The Hazards Of Love" sees the band take a decidedly different, simpler, more straightforward direction that will undoubtedly be welcomed by some fans and reviled by others. Gone are the epic tales of swashbuckling mariners, doomed Victorian-era love affairs, wood nymphs, and Chinese trapeze artists. "King" seems free of any particular concept at all, and it's ten tracks clock in at a mere 40 minutes, the shortest of any of the band's studio albums. The first track, "Don't Carry It All", sets the stage for the drastic change in sound from their previous few releases, imploring listeners to "raise a glass to turnings of the season." The song also serves as a …
